Wiring Lights Location Help!

Hello thanks for clicking so basically I'm trying to find the

Connector plug for the Rear Lights cabling loom
passenger-side/ nearside/ left/ Port-side where the wiring loom/ cabling plugs in at the
Front end or anywhere in between.

The issue?

The rear passenger side sidelight-

The bulb is working;
The connector to the rear light cluster cleaned and working.

The yellow and black wire to it does not.
Checked with the meter with a pin along a bit so it's not immediately that end.
Yes could be a break in the wire anywhere along the loom but I really want to check the Connector the other end.

Can anyone help at all with that location please?

Many thanks in advance!

Try the door switches first they are easier to locate.

Its connected to the body computer. Connector E which on a right hand drive car is the top right connector. Pin 5.

No idea why you've involved the door switches here?

Thank you.

Now where is this body computer you speak of?

Location and access please?

I've located the airbag ECU thus far and broken both panel push lugs off of each panel tsk!

Feel like I'm getting somewhere with your advice though..

Please elaborate on the Connector E - this will include said wire from the rear passenger side (yes thanks right hand drive car) in the loom and the connector yes?

Hopefully I might be able to get to grips with this wire then that has been amiss since forever!

Thanks!!

You'll need a long stand and a left handed screw driver for this job.

Sorry, thought you where describing the interior lights, hence my not very helpful post.

Tartan paint anyone.

Its in the fuse box under the steering wheel.
The body computer looks like the one in this picture although this one is a punto.

Yours will be bolted 180* round from this way (ie tab at top).

For info the middle one of the three sockets at the bottom of this pic (& top on yours) won't (shouldn't) have anything plugged into it - that's where you would plug a suitable code reader to read off engine faults or other faults.

I've pm'd you my telephone number if you want any assistance.

Cheers
