    Hopefully just a trivial matter. But before I start to confuse myself with more wiring diagrams im hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction.

    1989 s13, Just put a SR20DET Blacktop nonvvt in. Got it running with a redtop loom and ECU.

    Rear indicators work but none of the front ones. Fuses are fine but I have still probably done or overlooked something stupid.

    Any pointers?

    Cheers

    That would be typical of me to overlook something so simple. I dont think I have removed any but will have good a check.

    Cheers

    The front bumper has been off but all seems to be connected there.
    And yes Mr Warbington, the live feed is correct haha.

    Thinking of earths, there may be a cable missing off the CA engine harness that I used. Think I will go for a drive to the garage to check now.

    so the rears are flashing fast?

    check for 12v pulse at the indicator plug..

    if its there then quickly earth the black wire and see if they work and slow to normal pace.

    the s13 indicators and looming have nothing to do with the engine loom..

    if the rears are working it must be an earth point really
