    Hey my controller is clicking and there is no power to any plugs. Im the second owner and i noticed that two wires look like they got cut right by the controller.. I don't know if thats it or because the rubber on the plug connectors crumbled off and theres no insulation... Idk what do yall think? Thanks for the help.

    The 2 yellow wires are battery supply to the glowplugs. I would recommend getting some battery cable and use that to power the controller instead of reconnecting the yellow cables. The yellow cables have a bad habit of catching on fire over time as the connectors start to corrode.
