Default E420c 99 what are these wires for?

There are 4 wires coming from the board. What are these used for? Could these not being wired be the reason I can't get my car to start?

Those look like the cam/crank signal wires. So yes that is probably why it won't start.

I searched for a while but didn't see anything like that in some of the install guides on here? Are they suppose to be loose like that?

Disconected adaptronic to just run the stock computer. Turns out 3 and 4 are not firing. I have no idea why. It ran perfectly before installing the adaptronic. 3 and 4 not firing is a weird combination.

Never mind it runs fine on stock ecu. Still nothing even after connecting the loose wires.

Did you make your own wiring harness or are you using on of their PNP harnesses? Have you looked at the install guide that is in the WARI install folder?

Have you tried contacting Adaptronic? They should be able to sort you out.
