Question about 1986 Dodge Ramcharger

1 Answer


I have been restoring an 86 Ram-Charger for a few years now. In the spring i pulled the motor, and rebuilt it. Now, i had "help" pulling the motor, and he decided instead of unplugging the wires, it would be faster to cut them.....all of them. So now i am severly stuck with a rat's-nest mess here. I need a full wiring diagram/diagrams with detail, and color codes, for all the wiring under the hood. I have been tinkering with it and i hope i got most of them put where they go, but i know there are a few out of place. When i crank the motor, the +batt cable gets warm, i am not getting fuel to the carb, and the spark is super weak. If anybody has, or knows where i can get the info i need, please feel free to contact me. Thank you for your time. Travis.

I have an 87 f150 5.0 in 87 and I need to know if I can put in 86 5.0 motor in and I need to know where the knock sensor is on the 86 if you have any ideas

Yes, they appear identical engines. The engine wiring for the two years appears identical, down to the same knock sensor. So it is likely in the same position as on your '87. Only difference in the two years, is your 1987 might have an extra emissions solenoid or two, but the engine controls and sensors all appear identical.

I need a Complete wiring diagram for a 1999 Dodge Ram 1500.

Call your local Chrysler dealership and ask them for the telephone number of "Tech-Authority." That's the place where Dealerships obtain their service manuals for your exact model and year. The Haynes Manual is limited insofar as wiring diagrams go, but the factory Service Manual, under section 8, electrical, will take up over half of the book with diagrams of where splices are located in the wiring harness as well as what each and every connector looks like as well as the gauge, color and location of every wire in your truck.
