Good luck with your light
The starter test lead wire is either blue (early) or pink (late). The red thing is a sleeve on the wire with the part number for the harness.

On pre '90 models the wire for the under hood light breaks out of the harness near the brake booster. The light was eliminated '91- according the the parts catalog. There is no wire in the harness for the light. I checked a '91 244 and it's not there.

All you need to do is run a wire to the fuse box and connect it to fuse 8.
