so after a bit of searching it looks like the PINK/DARK BLUE wire at the diag plug seems to be the best bet so far.

thanks guys.

Pin 45 at the EF ECU plug might be another option, if you want to house the switch in the cavity behind the ECU and run the wires out to the engine bay near the washer bottle.

that is a great spot for it, i didnt think of hidding it behind the kickpannel/ECU. :oops:
yeah i know pin 45 is the wire that goes from ECU-TACHO-DIAG PLUG, i found that in a link you posted a while back for someone else :)

thanks heaps snap

NP, well I suppose it makes sense to keep your wiring over the passenger side of the engine bay.
