In the meantime, I have a request, I need some webspace. As we're now getting into more details, sites like the yahoo that limck uses isn't good enough anymore because we now need access to full-resolution pics. Ideally, we could use a common repository to house any images that limck, myself, or anyone else has. So if anyone can help (10mb would be enough), please PM me.
okie guys, i might have found where the wiring for the AMB connector leads to.
wongpres, i must have been clolourblind when i posted the colours of the wiring. it's wrong! the correct colours are :
1) white with black strip and silver dots
2) brown with yellow strip and silver dots
If i had not seen the colours wrongly i would not have to go through the trouble of removing parts from the car to trace the wire!
anyway, i traced the wiring from the AMB sensor connector and it went into a trunking which also houses the wiring for the fog lights.
You can see from the picture that there are 2 thick grey "cables". 1 is for the fog light and the other goes to the AMB connector.
I did a trace and found that the trunking went up into the car to where the left headlight is. As there were parts of exposed wires behind the headlight, i searched and found our 2 AMB wirings in the bunch.
Further to the right side of the car just above the radiator fan, there is another bunch of exposed wiring and i also did find the 2 AMB wires in that bunch.
further attempts to trace the wire proved futile as i couldn't find anymore exposed wires.
But I wasn't gonna give up. Acting on gut feeling, I decided to remove the audio HU and take a look at the wiring.
After removing the HU, I saw 2 familar coloured wires.
But there is one problem. The 2 wires on the HU connector has 2 silver dots every 1 inch or so whereas the wires on the AMB connector has 1 silver dot every 1 inch or so.
So guys, this is what I've managed to discover and I dun think there's anything else i can do. If anyone wants to try to hook up the sensor directly to the HU, the locations of the 2 wires on the conector can be seen on the last photo.
P.S: if anyone is kind enough to host some photos, I can upload some high res photos of the above.
