Iím in the process of re-wiring the car and Iíve been trying to pinpoint the location of the starter control wire. Does it come off the body harness or the ecu harness? In the manual it shows a red blue wire connecting to yellow black and then going to the starter. Anyone happen to have pics of what it looks like? Thanks in advance for the help.

I'm pretty sure when I redid my harness that it came off of the ECU harness.

ECU harness, it gets picked up by the relay cluster next to the battery and runs to the starter in the ECU harness.

Ok got it now. It doesn't tie into it but its bundled in for a foot or two off of A-31. A little weird they did it that way. Thanks for the help.

I need to hijack for a minute. Is there an actual relay for the starter? My 88's always been touchy about activating the starter. I've swapped starters, main relays, even ignition switches, and it's always. If the battery's fresh off the charger it'll go first try. If not, it'll take hitting the key several times. If it's been sitting a while it may not go at all. Can you post a pic of the relay or the cluster? I'll swap them all.
