Tried 2 different browsers and a different account, download works fine for me, perhaps your browser security settings are blocking the page. Try going to the download link on the main menu at the top of the forum, navigate to the MK1 tech section and look for the UK electrical pdf

Hi,

Ive gone through some radios / met a guy who re wires classic cars for a living (who is very cool)
we were pretty much right with the colors and i can now get one "working"
the blue is for memory witch is not used on the A radio and neither is one of the greens (the dimmer)

If anyone is selling a working MK1 A radio please let me know.

:no:
Both those wires ARE used in the 1a, I mentioned them in one of my previous posts on this thread, also mentioned in this KY2 article https://www.mr2oc.co.uk/know-your2/mk1/ ... pters.html
If you look at the wiring diagram in the this pdf https://www.mr2oc.co.uk/download-cats/d ... rical.html page 23 shows both wires, I personally scanned that pdf 10 years ago from the Toyota Electrical Wiring Diagram, MR2 AW11 series (Nov. 1984) For Europe & General, Pub No 36711E, so definitely 1a drawings
