I have two wires going IN to my coil - one is obviously the ignition controlled positie, where would the other one be from? :roll:

I have obviously looked in the manual, but it only shows one wire entering...

Does the car have electronic ignition fitted? These kits tend to have a second wire off the +ve to power the ignition unit.
