From what my manual shows, the Dark Green wire goes to the PCM, and the Dark Green/Black wire goes to a splice that splits to various things- the coil, the ASD relay among others. Hope that helps.

Forum rules prohibit the posting of copyrighted materials such as manuals, so I can't post scans of the diagram. Sorry. Can you receive scans via PMs and be able to read them?
