Help identifying this red wire in my 1981 Ke70 headlight loop? (photos)

Recommended Posts

Hi all, first post here. This has been a great resource for my build. 

Car is 1981 Ke70 2 door van, nz assembled with 2BX headlights from factory.

So, I have looked at several wiring diagrams, including just about anything you can find ke related on the internet and I still cannot figure out what this wire is for. I have a corolla ke70 Haynes manual too and it has no mention of this wire loop. everything else is there but not this (unless I'm reading colours wrong, assuming 'R' is red).

Before I unwrapped the factory wiring loom it was wrapped in with the main headlight wires. It runs with the headlamp loom to both lights then continues on with one side being doubled up to a single terminal. I have converted to quad head lamps and have them running using the method provided on this site, however was wondering if this wire is there from factory to run the extra lamps in a high beam loop. Does anyone have a factory quad light setup in original condition to compare with?  or has anyone else's loom got this red wire?   

Just keen to know what it does...otherwise I'm going to hide it away when I re wrap the loom as everything runs without it.

Put a multimeter on it and see if it is energised, if not then turn on your parkers and test, then head lights then hi beam. If it is related to the headlights you will soon see.
