Hey,

Does anyone have a diagram they could post a pic of the wiper motor wiring? The harness in the car has been cut out at the motor in the engine compartment and I need to wire back up. If it shows wire color and position on the block that would be perfect.

I hit up a parts store and they don't carry manuals any more Confused I would order one but I was hoping some one could take a decent phone pic on the page and save me some time and a little $$

Thanks!

Joe

Is this what you're looking for?







This is from my 79.

How bad is it? Is it just hacked in a few areas or widespread? What shape is the insulation in? Does it crack when you bend the wire? Check the wiring under the hood especially around heat sources like starter wiring and anything on the firewall area. Also check any high current wire - alternator, headlights, etc. You can search around e-bay and find some of the connectors if they're just the problem. If it's a few areas then just cut it back to where it's good then solder and heat shrink on new wire. If you get a universal harness they are much cheaper than the exact fit - usually around $150 - $200 less. Clay

I would start with a schematic of some sort. Even the Haynes manuals that identify wire color should help. You will have to do some deductive reasoning most likely figure out some of it like figuring out what emissions devices it might have had and where they were located under the hood. It shouldn't have had many but I'm betting that's what some of the mystery wiring is. Clay

I was hoping it woud be isolated under the hood. If it's that bad it might be best to start over. It can always be fixed but sometimes it's best to just tap out and begin fresh. Clay

its time to start over. no matter how much its repaired, it will NEVER be right.

depending on skill and time, one could pull the fuse box out of a late model donor car and wire from there. not very expensive but requires a sh!tload of time and skill. other than that, its somewhere in the neighborhood of $500 to buy a decent complete aftermarket wiring harness.

Basic fuse box is cheap but I'd rather start all new. All new wires everything just to make it so much easier and safer install.

No doubt - now that you mentioned that about the turn signals and headlights I agree with 10sec.et - it's a done deal - start over. Clay

American Auto sells an OEM replacement harness that is all original (color coded, and terminated at the exact length and wire size as the factory original).

I prefer the cut to desired length and crimp on my own terminal on a heavier gauge than stock wire available with Painless' wiring kits. They provide you with all of the required terminals in the shipping bag but you can make a wire fit out of sight with their wiring kits. They are not stock replacements however. You buy a kit based upon the number of fused circuits you need (they use a plastic plug in type fuse instead of the older AGC style glass Buss fuse).
