So first off the wiringharness isnt an OE spec harness, it's from a guy who made harnesses here in sweden but no longer active.

I am trying to figure out if i have done something wrong in the process.

I do not get power in the brown wire (that i guess i should?) thats coming from the ignitionswitch when i turn the key.

(NO amp gauge)

So from my harness i have 6 wires

(Big Red that says to connect to BAT which i think is the Big Red from the switch).

(White connect to Ign1 / coil which is the Brown wire)

(I have i black wire that connects to the Blue which give power to the to the headlight doors and such)

(Yellow connects to a Purple to the starte relay)

(And 2 small red/black wires that connects to the Big Black wire from the switch)

So basically i only get power through 4 out of 8 wires.

I can crank the engine and all lights work.

I did a test and connected a new ignitionswitch with no difference.

I hope i explained in a good enough way.

’70 ignition switch lead coding?

Yellow- Start-crank, starter relay, 12 volts in crank only.

Black- accessory, 12 volts in run and accessory positions.

Blue- Ignition 1, 12 volts in run position only.

Brown- Ignition 2, ballast resistor bypass, 12 volts in crank position only.

Red- Battery feed in, 12 volts.

18ga orange, if present, column auto gear select light.

Two small red wires, key-in switch leads.

Oh, so brown only have 12v at crank, then i need another 12v at run position for my EFI
 
Then you'll have to push your car around with open headlights? I guess

So what i could do is to have the blue as a trigger wire to a relay, that give power to a fuseblock which i can get power to the EFI and the headlight doors?
 
Connect the blue (ignition 1) and brown (Ignition 2) wires together for 12 volts in both crank and run. There are a couple of other threads going on here on that subject presently.
