Firewall electrical schematics 89 ford probe

Your best bet is to just pay the ($15 I think it is) to and have all the service information you could every want for every part of the car. I did a google search and trying to find a specific wiring diagram usually takes quite a bit of time. If you have a lot of time to spend, just do a search and sift through the sites one by one until you find what you're looking for. Good luck, I've been through this one before. Used to have an 89 Probe, it was fun except for the speed limiter at 113mph, haha!
