MPI Ignition Switch with MG Loom
 
I've got MG ZR loom installed in my Mini, shortened to fit inside the car.

I can't work out how I need to wire the Mini (MPI column) ignition switch to work with the MG loom.

Has this been done before?

yes, i've done a few mpi looms. when you say you have a zr loom shortened to fit do you mean just the engine loom or the whole car loom?

I'm glad this popped up, something on my list of little jobs

Entire loom, just with a few feet chopped out so the two fuse boards were closer together.

Electric windows, air con, mirrors etc has been de-pinned, so its only the MG wiring I want left.

I am left with seven MG ignition barrel wires to be connected to four Mini ignition switch wires.

Anyone able to help with this?

I’m getting close to needing to re-wire the ignition.

I haven't done a complete loom swap so can't really help without spending time looking through the wiring diagrams, I normally use the mini loom and join the k series engine loom into it. I think you will just have to sit down with a copy of the rover rave diagrams and work out each wire
