1990 Chevy 1/2 ton 4/4 truck with auto and 350v8. wiper problems

1990 Chevy 1/2 ton 4/4 truck with auto and 350v8. I recently burnt the wiring harness up because of a back fire. Have replaced the harness with one out of a 1989 truck 4/4 380v8 same as mine. All plugs matched up ok except my harness had a gray plug wire by the computer harness, the 89 did not have. Also the oil sending unit on the engine has two prong plug as the 90 had a three prong plug, I took the sending oil unit off the 89, so it plugs in. My question is this my wipers don't work right and the washer does not work, the harness for the wiper motor pluged in was the same 4 wires plus a middle black wire. When i turn on the wipers the oil guage and check guage pulsate back and forth, only works on high speed no low speed and no itermittent mode, and the wiper motor buzzes when on delayed or low speed. I tryed to add a ground wire to the middle black wire on the plug, no good does not change, also the temp guage pulsates too. You folks have any ideas how to fix this before i have to try and take it to a shop?????? Your help would be greatly appreciated THANKS !

Your best bet here is to go to the dealer or a reputable tune up shop and see if they will provide you with wiring diagrams for both years. If you explain your predicament, they will most likely give them to you.They don't like to tackle these kinds of jobs. Then you will have to go through them to see what is different.That is the only way to solve this problem.
Every year there are changes in the details with wiring harness and it's probable that you may have to change the position of some wires going into or out of the computer. Trace out the circuit on both diagrams and reconfigure the 89 harness to match the contact points and routing obf the 90 and you should be able to get your wipers working properly and your gauges to stop flashing. Hope this helps.

Sounds like a loose connection, Clean the fuse contacts. Sometimes lubricant and dirt gets on the contacts within the switch itself and this will interfere with power supply. Have you checked the wiper relay corrosion and wear on the relay contacts impair electrical connection. Brighten up contacts with fine sand paper and if the relay contacts are suspect, remove the cover and draw folded sand paper between the contacts until clean.

Where to find diagram for wiring harness for 85 chevy suburban?


You can check out your local auto parts store for a Haynes or Clymer repair manual. I know that AutoZone, O'Reilly's, and Advance Auto Parts all carry these manuals at a cost of $20-$25. They contain the wiring diagrams for the major electrical systems. Unfortunately that's probably going to be one of the few sources for a vehicle that old. I happen to own an 85 Chevy Silverado 1/2 ton. What type of problem are you experiencing? Perhaps I could assist you.
