    Looks like this was the starter solenoid cable that was shorting at two points. Not sure how the insulation got cut though..
    Lesson learned - if you buy a used harness always remove all insulation tape and inspect thoroughly!

    Did an emergency release for my bonnet this morning... need to hide the wires a bit better as you can see them through the grill but they work

    May chop the wires down and attach cord to either end of the wire and attach the cord to the underside of the slam panel. May look neater.
