Wiring Question

Hi everyone,

I started to thin out my wiring harness.
First disconnected battery and took out the media harness car started without any issue. Next I traced the Horn wiring from the fuse box to the relay and disconnected it from the Horn and ground. I tried to start the car after that and it would not crank over.
I put the wiring back in but it still wont crank over. There are no error codes.
Anyone of you had a similar issue? Could it be the EWS? Could unwrapping the harness have broken another wire?

Thanks for your help!

did you disconnect any of the ground wire connectors? I remember at some point of wire thinning I had disconnected the one on the passenger side of the transmission tunnel and couldn't figure out why the car wouldn't start for a bit.

The car runs again!
First I thought that it was the magnetic clutch switch. But I was wrong. Good thing I had a donor standing around, so I changed the whole clutch pedal assembly and the car starts again. Thanks for your help guys. I really appreciate it!
