Hey, i woul struggle to find do this test as i have no idea where those 2 wires go to. they go into a bundle of other wires and all over the engine compartment.

Do you have any idea which wire would be the ground wire if the colour of the 2 wires were green and white.
My guess would say the green one would probs be the ground wire.

Since im probably unable to test which wire shut off the engine best, would i be best to kill the power or the ground.

thanks

You need a good wiring diagram for your car. When you have that, with patience you can test disconnecting wires without cutting them by disconnecting individual wires in the OEM connectors. You'll want to test because even the wiring schematic will not give you all the info you want and so disconnecting something that seems to affect one system might turn out to affect two or three systems.

The OEMs did not make the cars or their wiring diagrams with modders and hackers in mind! Hahahaha!

Sorry I can't offer more than that.

Have you searched this forum for others who have completed injector kills?

Hi, thanks for the advice.
Yeah ive alread had a really good read of alot of threads on there and that why i decided to go down the route of the crankshaft sensor.

Renault dont seem to like to give people much info about there cars at all. Even the haynes manuals are pretty usless and asking on the renault forum they just think we are nuts haha.
