Thanks Clive. Between a few of us trying different options/ideas I think this is the best solution.

I've put up a separate thread: http://mr2oc.co.uk/ocforum/viewtopic.php?t=165250

FYI
the White/Black wire on that Orange plug is Earth(ground) Toyota commonly uses White/Black for earth wires. However do not confuse White/Black with Black/White. Toyota's colour code works like this, the main body colour (of the wire) is always listed first and the trace colour (narrow stripe) is listed second.
So mainly White wire with a black stripe = White/Black
Black is not a colour ! .... Its the absence of colour

Thanks Jimi, are you suggesting that the white/black wire on the orange plug is spliced into for earth rather than a separate chassis earth? Makes no odds I suppose although I've always used a more direct to chassis earth.

Just pointing out its there if someone wants to use it, makes no real difference where you pick up an earth. :th:

Fair enough. Would make the install even easier.
