FWIW, I have been using Imgur.  Pretty easy to use, even for an old guy that took about 2 years to figure out Photosucket.

There is no pedal switch, there is a switch on the trans which is connected.  BUT now that you mention it(dammit Charlie its too early for my brain to be working), there should be something as far as wiring up by the pedal, even if there are no switch(Guess what uncle Kelmo is doing later on today).  I think you may be on to something there as I have been so focused (focus: fuck off cuz ur stupid) on the wires from the ignition switch and that circuit, I never really considered all those extra green wires under the dash since they weren't connected before.  I have a Haynes manual that is fairly decent and has 3 different wiring diagrams (Automatic, Standard, and US & Canada) and it has helped quite a bit....even though I need to use a magnifying sheet to read it.


I am hoping to sort this out soon as I am chomping at the bit to get started on the wagon that I have owned since 2013. :thumbup:

Volt meter = too smart for this guy. Yes, using a test light....when circuit is complete, it lights up (that type). I had some doubts about the ignition switch up until yesterday, pulled it out of this car and installed into the green coupe and it started.  I have not run a lead from the battery to the coil cuz well, I ain't that smart.  Also, not really a mechanic and just slowly trying to rule things out. I have swapped out just about every thing that is ignition related: Dizzy, coil & resistor, cap & wires, and now the ignition switch.  Someone had suggested to swap out the voltage regulator but I don't see that being part if the ignition system.....still gonna try it though, just for grins.

After I try the V/R swap I plan to go back and start all over again with the harness. The harness in this car belongs to an autotrajic and has worked for 10+ years in this car.  The problems all started when I tried to remove the neutral starter relay(I think that is what the manual called it), and associated wiring.  I do have some other harnesses but I am going to try and repair this in car if possible as the other harnesses will need some repair.

Kelmos  coupe covers the grey car, Manure covers the green car.  Not much to see on either....never fixed the "cursed" photobucket links.





Maybe to make the grey car feel better I will tow it around the block with the green car.  Once towed a 1200 coupe with a 510 wagon....no rope or chain around so we used a garden hose (young, no money).

Tried that, but it wasn't sage spice, I didn't blow, I inhaled....still didn't work.  This afternoon I plan to walk circles around the car with a gas can and a Zippo lighter in my hand.





Like the picture idea........



Not sure if it is being lazy or just getting even with me for ravaging it to make the green car run and then letting it sit for a little over a year.

Well, I have an ignition circuit that refuses to get spark and all of the parts work fine when installed in another car......I am pretty sure I heard the car laughing at me yesterday.





Keep telling myself.......just one more wire.

So, I am stll messing around with this and the only thing I know for sure is that I am not gettting spark out of the coil.  Everything in the ignition system (excluding the ignition switch itself) has been swapped out of the grey car and into the green car....the green car runs without fail every time. I think part of the harness for the relay needs to be found and removed and I plan to work on this over the weekend.

Electrical is not my strong suit (I am kinda like a blind man without a guide dog or a cane, just bumbling through this). So if I post a pic of the grey car burned to the ground, well, one of two things happened......I wired something wrong or I just got fed up, found some gas and a Zippo lighter.

You can use imgur.....when you upload pics from your computer, you can choose from several "sizing" tabs.  I usually resize to the "message board" size....if I remember to hit the tab first.

Here are some Nissan part #'s





The one that ends "28500" should be the newest #. You would have to call your local Nissan dealer to see if they are available.
