You can get rid of it altogether (by substituting for a conventional wire) if you change to a 12Volt coil

so i have 3 options:

1) leave it as it is

2) take it out but than i need to put 12v coil

3) can i put some smaller in it or modern resistor?? ( if yes, maybe can give some link where i can find it?)

I had one on mine and it melted so I just replaced it with a bit of normal wire and put a 12v coil on it. Its purpose is to reduce the voltage to the 9v coil when the engine is running

i rebuilding fiesta so all wires put together made them in black housing in engine bay, and this one left alone :D so want to make it look good, thats why thinking

maybe to buy new coil for 12v and thats it ( i dont need to change nothing else only to put 12v coil??)

Have you a wiring diagram for it ? The two wires either side of rad with the male/ female fitting would possibly for spot lights. Don't know about the others sorry.

thanks for the second pic.

 

but the third is the same as in 1 pic, and its not to cooling fan, because thats already plug in. i think they could be the fog lights?

Stick a meter in them and set it to Ohms, with the meter resting on your wipers and facing into the car.

Then get your Missus to pretend your in a showroom looking at a new car. She will proceed to flick every switch and lever, which hopefully might give a reading on the meter. Bingo... :-)
