one is switched on and one is constant i believe, but i cant figure out where to hook them upto?
where does the plug go? it looks like the ignition module plugs. i think maybe one is from the altenator for the dummy light. but im not sure
yes, they plug into the steering column hear the key, they are ignition wires. i'm going to sleep.. thanks for the help guys, i need to start this tomorrow!
ttt need to finish wiring this this morning. thanks!
If you still need the info I can look it up on alldata tonight.
thanks, i just hooked it up with out them, its trying to crank, but i dont think i have enough juice to crank it over.
I can only search back to 82 in All Data and the only brown wire they list goes to the ignition circuit fuse but from trying to decifer the locations of the wires in the plug in your pic it looks like the one that is in the same plug as the orange wire must be to an ign hot and the other look to ulimately go to the harness to the back of the gauges and to a LT DIR IND through a connector of sorts which my guess would be that one that attaches to the bottom of the console that has the heat sink (at least on my 86) but thats what all data shows for an 82. Hope that might help.
I can e-mail you some of the diagrams if you would like
I checked my diagrams but they are for 87 which is TBI and I have those connectors that you show but the wires are not the same colors nor is there the same amount of wires (i.e. I have a wire for automatic transmission that come from one of those connectors). The orange wire should be hot all the time and the brown by itself should be switched maybe acc.
thanks guys, i appreciate it, we got it started! i'll post video later, i'll try your suggestions.
If that's an 80-ish truck, perhaps those are things like the key in ignition warning buzzer wire, etc.?
