That's gonna take a good test light and some serious patience. First thing you gotta do is FORGET trying to match the colors,ain't gonna happen. Find out which wire is hooked to what and splice it to the stock wire that does the same job. I'd use **** connectors,just don't cut the wire off of the '94 harness at the plug. Give yourself a few inches in case you ever want to do another engine swap. It's a lot easier to sell an engine if you can re-attach the stock harness for the new owner. Capiche? Good luck, let me know how it comes out at Bart

How do I wire after market stereo to 94 ford probe

check the radio stores as you may be able to get a radio harness to connect the aftermarket radio to the factory wiring harness so you won`t have to cut and splice, its just a plug and go.

69 mustang hood flasher wiring diagram

If the hood is original to the car whoever removed the wiring may have simply taped it into the wire harness on the firewall. If they have been removed or cut off, you can locate the corresponding wires in the firewall harness and splice into it with the hood harness. Otherwise you may have to purchase both wire harness from a specialty warehouse and that will be expensive. If there are no wires/plug taped into the firewall harness there is also a possibility that the car didn't come with the hood signals and the hood was added later.

My fuse for the fuel pump keeps blowing. the fuel pump was replaced. it was intermitant now as soon as you put the fuse in it pops. Short in the wiring somewhere?

When the fuel pump is replaced, often the correct wiring harness needs to be spliced in. The original wiring harness was more than likely reused. It is very possible the wiring harness is the cause for the short. Other than that, check where the wires go from the fuel pump wiring harness to the connection to where they go back inside the car. Corrosion is often another problem.

Will not fire, have changed all electronics and fuel componets, injectors not turning on?

Hello Swisspeel.
I suspect your EEC power relay isn't working.
The relay is mounted on the left fender well and has a brown cover on it. The fuel pump relay is mounted beside it and is colored green.
Check the large yellow wire going into the EEC relay for positive battery power. It is common for the power to these to go open circuit at a splice in the harness. Open up the loom over the harness and trace it back. Go all the way to the ECM computer mounted in the left firewall below the brake booster if you need to. There are two splices that are known problems. The splices are wrapped in friction tape and go green with corrosion.
Repair the wires as necessary.
If you have power there leave me a message in "add comments" and we will proceed to the next test.
It may be later as I have to get back to work for the next few hours.
Hope you find it!
