    Default Fuego Computer connection

    Just servicing our "new" Fuego -replacing all belts etc and other minor things and found computer connections in "tool area" in boot. It is Jan 86 ID plated and first registered )Oct 86. Still on carbs and no obvious ECU etc.
    Wired into large loom going forward on left side of car.
    Anybody advise?
    Thanks.

    Does your car have a tow bar?

    Umm, yeah right, Fuego’s are not my speciality. But are there any pics of the said wiring? Renault did allude to making provision for trailer wiring at some stage. With the subject car being a late model, it could be that provision. See if the wiring colours match with that on the tail lights.

    Car does not have towbar and connections are for keyboard and computer or laptop and mouse.

    What about a CD stacker? They have mouse type plugs and I bet someone had a stacker mounted in there and didnt bother pulling out the wiring when they took out the stacker.

    Icon14 Arrived late yet again!

    Yes, not that you needed to be told now
    My wife has an Alpine 6-stacker and the plug is definitely of the rotary computer type, somewhere between the old XT keyboard size and the newer PS2 mouse size
