SOURCE: 1989 Jeep Cherokee - Electrical Problem - horn, brake lights, blinkers, radio/cd...

I think I have found the problem. When I wiggle the ignition switch the turn signals and radio go on and off so I feel the issue is in the ignition switch. From what I understand the actual electronics for the switch are at the base of the sterring column behind the lower dash panel and is connected by a rod that may need adjusting.

SOURCE: obd 2 connector does not work with any code scanner

HI there....Check to see if the code reader is a CAN OBD 2 code reader. If it is only OBD2 , that may be the problem. In 2003 Some vehicle manufacturers ( ford,Gm,Mazda and Saab) began using a new computer protocol called Controller Area Network (CAN) with the OBD2 and if your vehicle is CAN OBD 2 the simple OBD2 code reader will not work.Contact your local dealer to determine if you vehicle is CAN or not or find a code reader that is CAN OBD2 capable. Hope this helps you out

SOURCE: wiring diagram from truck to trailer

Get a tester light the type with an alligator clip and a sharp point.
Check each wire for your brake lights,blinkers etc.
i.e. With the blinker light on find the correct wire and splice into it with the corresponding light on the trailer. ( DO NOT CUT THE TRUCKS WIRE)
Remove the covering and twist the plug wires around it and tape or shrink wrap if you can.
Hope this helps

Jetta converting auto trans to manual


You don't mention which series the car is (Mk 2...). I would highly suggest picking up a Bentley manual for the car though. Much better than any other aftermarket book out there. Mine (for Mk 2's) has all the wiring diagrams in the back. They are pricey, but it'll pay you back many times over if you like to wrench your own car.

No easy way I know of, perhaps if you can get hold of the auto and manual wiring diagrams and work from there, you will have to change the computer as the manual and auto are not the same.

I have a 95 chevy pick up with 6.5 diesel engine and converted to gasoline engine witch is 5.7 vortec engine and change all the wire harness inside the cab and engine compartment. Trying to figure out the...


Hi :) Check the wiring harness for a fuel pump relay that is on the firewall. The trans is computer controlled (shift points, firmness, ect). You would either need to run a TBI motor from a '92-95 3-4 or 1-ton truck and get the computer to go with it. Then the new gas computer can run the trans. You will also need to swap the torque converter to a gas unit instead of the diesel. OR get whatever motor you want, and then use a stand-alone controller for the trans. They cost about $600+ for the controller. Still need to do the torque converter. You could run the diesel TC but it just wouldn't perform to full potential.It will bolt up, but a diesel transmission is different from a gas transmission. Diesels shift way earlier and only go to 3500 rpm max. If yo u do the engine swap, you will need a new valve body in the transmission. I have a 700R4 in a 1935 Ford truck. It never shifted right unless I drove it manually. It always bogged down. I took the transmission to 5 different shops and no one could figure it out. After 6 years, I was telling a buddy about it and he had me bring it to his shop. He changed the valve body (was a diesel trans and I didn't know when I bought it at an auto swap) to a corvette valve body and now the truck runs great.

So, i have a Tracker that has been changed, by the previous owner, from factory auto trans to a 5 speed. It has an issue with the engine (bogs) and the gauges (go haywire), when you run/ shift into gear....


the wiring harness is different, but the trans. will still work you won't have backup lamps, and for the engine to run properly you need a computer out of one that came with a manual transmission the computers have the same connectors

Engine swap. color codes are different need wiring diagram


I've done several of these swaps that sound good at the time but end up being a Huge problem.I would start with the correct harness for the engine you've put in.It must include the under hood harness and what ever harness connects to it thru the firewall to the computer.You'll also need everything connected to the transmission to the computer including any thing connected with the brake and accelerator pedals.Next get the wiring diagrams from Jeep or buy the Chilton or Haynes manual,they have the diagrams included.Get the harnesses connected to the engine,trans and computer,then work backward towards hooking up everything else.I really feel your pain,I've put 20 year newer engines in older cars,V-8's where 6's were,an olds V-8 where a in-line six was(ford),Late model v-8 in a 59' Chevy.All these were simple compared to what your going thru.Please contact me if I can be of any help?

Motor and trans exchange


Both engines were available in that jeep, but computer and harnesses need to be swapped as well. You may want to get a really good wiring diagram (not haynes) to check your attachment points and harness variations. Make sure you take everything you could possibly need from donor vehicle. (take more and throw away excess...easier than forgetting something.)
Good luck!!

1990 fuel injection engine into an 86 Z28


you can get an "engin swap wiring harness" from jegs or summitt that would require a little extra work on the wiring on the inside of the vehicle, however if you have the original wiring harness for the 90 engine, there is a plug on the inside of the right(pass) fender of the camaro that connects the internal wiring to the external. (plus the fuse block connector under the hood on the firewall on the driver's side) as far as the trans. i did the same thing with mine and kept the 5 sp, the only real problem is that i don't have back up lights.
