<VV> coil wiring help needed

I got two conflicting replies and hoped you could clear it up for me.  If 
both the yellow and dark blue wire go to the coil, then what connects to the 
lead for the oil pressure/temp switch?  I have no wires left!

On the other hand if the 12v dark blue wire goes to the switches as someone 
else said.... then I have power to the coil only when cranking and the car 
wont run....

Hope you can help!

Hi Ray,

You're correct that the yellow wire goes on the coil - it's only hot when 
cranking.  The other wire would also go on the coil, that's the "run" 
circuit.  I'm not sure, but I thought only Spyders had the separate 
resistor - measure the voltage and see if it's around 8 volts when "on", if 
so then the resistor is in the harness.
