    Ignitor coil ground connector

    Hey Guys,

    My car wasn't starting and I discoverd a small connector that was loose. It was on the output side of the ignitor coil.
    It seems to be a ground connector, but it has got a weird connector, and I cant find the coresponding connector in the engine bay...

    Does anyone know where it is suposed to be going?

    After some research it seems to be te connector of the stock wastegate solenoid

    But does anybody know why it still wont start? It cranks and I can smell some fuel, so you would think it is the ignition.
    The only thing I changed is that I replaced the stock ignitor chip (that was working before) with a ignitor bypass.
    But that didn't work and after going back to the old one. It suddenly wouldn't start with the old one aswel

    I think I found the problem.

    I discoverd that the ignitor chip bypass was completely empty, so no wires within the plastic housing. It was a production mistake.
    I am going to wire it up, I think that was the only problem.
    The reason why the engine wasn't starting when I put the old one back was because the engine was flooded quite badly

    Just a quick update for people with the same problem!

    In the end it was a bad igniter chip. The bypass replacement that I bought was indeed empty.
    After wiring it up my car started with no problems. Also the misfiring problem is completly gone
