With all due respect, may I just suggest pausing for a reality check?

You're asking how to refit a dash to a sixty year old car and the dash is both for an export RHD model and is not even standard and is highly likely to have been modified to some degree since it left the factory. You're asking this on a website where we cannot post even simple diagrams and where any answers you do get may well be incorrect, and where mistakes could cause a fire in the wiring loom.

This is a great site, and volunteers like me do the best we can to help folks fix things themselves but in this case there is only one safe and solid answer: get a specialist auto-electrician in. You can tailor the service by either getting the dash fully fitted or just asking for the wires to be re-labelled.

Note that faded sixty year old wiring looms are not to be relied upon and you are strongly advised to remove it to use as a pattern to fabricate a new one with. As long as you use the correct wire ratings and are methodical this is not a difficult job but it is a bit time consuming. This could either be done using modern wiring materials or there are pricier modern materials which have the appearance of vintage textile braided wiring. Remember that the loom wrapping will hide most of the wiring used so unless the car has to be 100% original there's no drawback in using modern fire-resistant thin wall pvc wiring. Remaking the loom also restores the wiring colours and allows for more fuse protection and load reducing relays to be fitted; these can usually be hidden away to preserve the original appearance if desired. Many classic car insurers will refuse to pay out for a wiring related incident if a perished loom is refitted after an overhaul, and if you can prove that additional safety features have been correctly installed they'll often reduce the annual premiums.

I hope that you can take this answer in the spirit in which it's intended, and understand that the additional advice does directly relate to the information which you've given in your question. To omit the advice would have been irresponsible.

Good luck, and you have my sympathies: I'm just nearing the end of a six-year long restoration of a 1946 Lagonda 2.5 litre Mk1.

How can i convert my 1996 toyota 4runner from lhd to rhd?


Its a big job to do properly.

I think if I was doing it, I would procure a RHD model wreck and transfer the needed parts.
If that's impractical, order the essential RHD parts from a wrecker in a country where RHD is the norm.

Need to buy car parts but my car was manufactured in Canada


i would say that if the parts fit use them. the reason they say that is because over in europe they use diiferent levels of power for controling the cars but there is no difference between canadian and us versions.

The steering column is locked. I followed the directions in the manual but it remains locked and the next step, according to the manual is to tow it to the dealer. It is a 2000 Corvette


I had the same problem on mine ..... apparently their is a recall on the column lock mechanism, that needs to be replaced by the dealer. I had to have mine towed to the dealer for those repairs. The ended up charging me for another part that works with the column lock for 400.00. Please beware.. here is some more info on the Corvette column lock.
Hope this info helps...

2001-2004 CHEVROLET CORVETTE EQUIPPED WITH AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION – EUROPEAN EXPORT
VEHICLES ONLY


DESCRIPTION:
PRODUCT SAFETY #04006C
DATED: FEBRUARY 8, 2006
IMPORTANT:

THIS BULLETIN CANCELS AND REPLACES BULLETIN 04006B, ISSUED NOVEMBER 2004. THE SERVICE PROCEDURE FOR U.S. VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH A MANUAL TRANSMISSION HAS BEEN REVISED. PLEASE REVIEW THIS NEW INFORMATION IMMEDIATELY.

ALL COPIES OF BULLETIN 04006B SHOULD BE DESTROYED.

General Motors has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain 1997-2004 model year Chevrolet Corvette vehicles. When you remove the ignition key, the electronic column lock (ECL) system prevents turning of the steering wheel. When the vehicle is started, it unlocks the steering. Two conditions can prevent steering while the vehicle is moving:

1. The vehicle is designed so that if the column fails to unlock when the vehicle is started, the fuel supply will be shut off if the driver tries to move the vehicle. If voltage at the powertrain control module is low or interrupted, however, the fuel shut off may not occur and the vehicle can be accelerated while the steering is locked.
2. During quick cranks, the ECL lock pin may not withdraw fully and, in vehicles where there is abnormally low clearance to the lock plate, there may be contact between the pin and lock plate. This can cause a noise or ratcheting when the steering wheel is turned or, if there is insufficient clearance, the steering wheel cannot be turned.

If one of these conditions occurs, a crash could occur without warning.


CORRECTION:
Dealers are to remove the column lock plate on U.S. and Canadian vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission and U.S. vehicles equipped with a manual transmission. After the service correction, the steering column will no longer lock when the key is removed.

On Canadian and export vehicles equipped with a manual transmission, and export vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission, Dealers are to 1) reprogram the PCM, and 2) verify there is adequate lock plate clearance and, if necessary, replace the lock plate. After the service correction, the steering column will continue to lock when the key is removed.

Refer to the Product Safety Bulletin #04006C for further information.


EFFECTIVE DATE:
Owner mailing is scheduled to begin February 15, 2006.


GENERAL INFORMATION:
Parts required to complete this recall are to be obtained from General Motors Service Parts Operations (GMSPO). Please refer to your "involved vehicles listing" before ordering parts. Normal orders should be placed on a DRO – Daily Replenishment Order. In an emergency situation, parts should be ordered on a CSO – Customer Special Order.

The Parts list follows:
