Rs2000 wiring loom

Recommended Posts

Just had an rs 2000 mk1 loom made by autosparks , but it’s not labelled or tagged , it looks very good quality but where it’s supposed to plug into the back of the fuse box it isnt in two blocks just loads of wires instead , does anyone have a colour wiring diagram that I can buy from them and try to make some sense of it , thanks.

Cant imagine the blocks into the fuse box is much different across the mk1 range? Do you have a trusty haynes manual?

They are crap mate , those “autosharks “ bullets are suppose to fit onto your fuse board and the clear cover goes over the top of them .....but they wont i found out for myself on the engine bay loom i bought from them ( BIG MISTAKE )  . All you have bought it an expensive bundle of junk wire !!!! Covered in grey tape . Forget it and either repair an existing one or find another loom .

None about that’s why I got this , I bought a complete loom and got to say it does look very good quality , I had read reviews before I bought from them and although there were a few negatives there were lots of happy customers , car would have been finished but this wiring has held me up two years it’s last chance for the car now

I would get in touch with the company who made you the harness I am sure they must have a copy of their wiring diagram where the wires go to

escortrs.co.uk  have wiring diagrams at £4.99 for a full set . I can take photos of the back of the fuse board plugs on my mk1 Mexico , but dont know whether it would be the same as the RS2 . It may help you identitfy the position of the colours if it is . I found on the engine bay loom i had made by them the wire colours matched the original its just they made a universal loom ( Rhd &  Lhd) all in one and all the bullet / block connectors were the same as yours ( single bullets ) I did send them my old loom to use the original fittings as i discussed with their salesman which in turn they chose to ignore .

The pictures would be a great help please , my early loom had a different connection to the fuse box , it didn’t have the plugs although now I have bought the correct fuse box for this new loom ,thanks for your help 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

As i said they are crap from a business point of view . Seems like they only want your money and no after sales service or help  !!!!

I should have taken notice 😂😂😂 not too many people out there though that do make them, and either a shortage of auto electricians or they are fully booked for months ☹️☹️
