November 28, 2005I would suggest locating a good set of electrical one-line drawings for your year model. These drawings will include wire color of original wiring which will help trace out and replace existing. That is assuming the original wiring is still there. Either way, a good diagram can be a great asset.
January 28, 2007I would look into Summit Racing or Jeg's. They sell complete wiring setups with fuse blocks for many different makes and models in their catalogs.
January 29, 2007I agree with both of the previous suggestions, but I would go with a new harness so that you would get new connectors for certain components and a new fuse block, and it will allow you to run a few accessories if need be without having to leg off of another circuit. Painless wiring harnesses are decently priced and pretty complete, they also have a couple/few different ones to chose from depending on the amount of accessories you want to run (electric fans, a/c, stereo system, etc).
January 29, 2007Thanks for reminding me 70C10. I was trying to remember what company puts together those new wiring harnesses and it's Painless...duh. Thanks again bro.
November 22, 2011I decided to take on my first wiring project ever yesterday and i ran into a problem that halted all of my progress. I bought a toggle switch and decided to make my electric fan operate off of that rather than the temp sensor. Once i figured out which wires did what, i realized that i have no idea how to get the toggle switch through the engine bay and on to my dash caps. Can anyone give me some info or tips on where to start looking; or if i will need to bring the wires through my dash or down by the pedals somehow?
