    I've got an 89 blazer. I'm pulling out all my stock gauges, and I'm putting in VDO gauges.

    I'll send in pictures when I get it done. However, I am looking for a wiring diagram for what colors of wires are what for the wiring harnes that plugs into the back of this.

    If anybody has any info on this it would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    My Haynes manual has the color coded wiring diagrams but only goes to 1987. I think they make one for your year, or maybe just a wiring diagram manual.

    Which Haynes manual do you have that has color coded diagrams? Can you get the ISBN off of it? If it covers the 89 stuff too I'll buy it just for that. Too bad it doesn't cover 85 too in one book...

    Let me clarify, it has the diragrams in black and white, but has all the colors listed for the wires.

    covers 1967-1987 pick ups; subs, blazer/jimmy 1967-1991. Hey, i just realized that even tho the wiring diagrams only go thru 87, maybe they are the same for K5s thru 91?? If so I have those as well. anyway,
    ISBN 1 85010 764 5

    I'll try to post the wiring diagram for the gage cluster for the 1981-1987 models. It may or may not be accurate for a 1991

    That would be great... It would definately save me some headaches...

    Me, being me, ripped all this apart and had all the gauges mounted before I relized I didn't have all the info I needed. I guess worst case scenario is I run a new wire from each sender.

    Not too bad in the long run.

    Anybody else replaced their gauges like this?

    Oh, that's what I have. Thanks anyway. Also, I don't think yours will cover the TBI (and other electronic controls) changes that apparently happened after 87 but the chasis is probably pretty close.

    Here is the cluster diagram I have for a 90 C/K series. It's pretty big but I left it that way to provide you with the clearest image possible. I reduced the color depth to 2 and made it a gif to make it as small as possible. I also made it a link so that others who look at this thread will not have to download it...

    I got the 8 pages of wiring diagram scanned and uploaded at my webshots site. It is active until at least mid may when they start charging.

    Hope this helps
    (edit) dang, after an hour getting the diagrams scanned and uploaded they aren't very clear. they worked on my pc, but i guess lost some quality throught the upload.

    I had some problems with my 90 and Haynes didn't help. I went to the public library (don't know how big your town is) and mad copies from Mitchell's books. They have model specific for each year. Really helped. Also, some mechanic shops use them if your library doesn't carry them.

    Yep, the library is where I got my schematics although the ’89 info I wanted was missing.
