Question about 1983 Ford Fairmont
I have a 4.1 crossfow motor with 3stage auto I want to find out what year and model would I search for to replace the 3stage with a 4speed auto.
I'm doing a custom job on my bedford van and will look for a complete loom out of a ford falcon ute. As will need a loom to run 4 speed correctly.
Model's that I'm looking at are the 1989 Gls and the 1993 XG just wondering if I'm on the right track or does anyone have a better solution,
From late EA through to early AU with smart lock, stay away from smart shield found in late AU onwards because they are a major pain

either your alternator is faulty or your battery is not holding charge
i would check the alternator and the battery and replace either or both

SOURCE: Radio wiring ford xg ute
On new systems, like the one you bought to replace old one: grey and white are front, purple and green are rear. New wires should be labelled or shown on diagram on radio body. Stripes indicate negative side of speaker.
On your old loom: cut back behind plug, and strip wires at ends. Isolate power and grounds, and any that go hot EVER! Now checking just the remaining wires, use a AA or 9-volt battery, and touch pairs of wires to opposite poles of the battery. If you touch two that go to the same speaker, you will hear a slight static sound at that speaker: label these for that speaker, and so on. Once you get the pairs seperated and labelled by speaker location, the negs will be the striped ones, though you may not find they all have stripes. once you pair them, test in both polarity positions, the correct one will sound better right away. Should be able to reach max volume with little buzz or distortion. If not switch pow and neg sides. Hope this helps, TT

SOURCE: Hi I have got a
I did my best to research this problem back the first time I saw it posted. What I came up with is use the computer from the donor engine/car. Your Neutral switch should also come from the donor in respect this switch is found on the clutch in a manual car not on the trans itself as in a auto. The reverse light will also come from the manual trans, and to find which wire is which in transplant car. Use a jumper wire and probe the harness till the reverse lights come on. I can not find a schematic for these cars on the net. Your best bet will be to get a shop manual for both and find the wires there. I hope to have been some help to you.
