Connector block disintegrated pretty much. I have a new connection block but need a wiring diagram for this unit. NDF-65N 120v 60hz 1500w. It has a heating element, lights and turning rod to simulate the fire. The heating works but the light will not come on. This is a Colorado Electric Fireplace QCM998-36

This is some food for thought. The c305 connector carries the wiring for three major subsystems in your Rendezvous' overall electrical system, the fuel pump, evaporation system and all-wheel-drive. Though this part has been subject to water leakage due to the design of the vehicle, I believe it would be a much better idea to replace the terminals within the connector rather than replacing the entire device and hard-wiring the systems.
For one thing, it is entirely possible that hard-wiring could pose problems for your Rendezvous' diagnostic system because the rewiring might start throwing incorrect codes to a diagnostic reader because of a lost connection.
For another, it is also entirely possible that when you remove the c305 connector that the new hard-wired connection may not lay correctly and it might become a conduit for leakage. Indeed, that is one of the ongoing problems with the c305 connector. There have been a couple of service bulletins issued for various Buick models built in the 2003-2005 timeframe that cover the connector. The bulletins deal c305 issues such as corrosion caused by the design issue.
My suggestion -- and remember it is only my suggestion -- would be to replace the terminals within c305 and after it was all cleaned up and secure, pot it up with non-conductive, waterproof grease so that any potential leakage would no longer be an issue.
If you still want to replace the connector, I can forward the diagrams you are looking for.
Make sure the engine is completely cool. Disconnect the vehicle's negative battery cable.
Remove any components that block access to the ignition
coils in your vehicle. This can vary depending on the model, and there
might not be any parts you need to remove. These parts can include the
air duct intake, connections to the power steering pump fuel injector,
harness connector, camshaft sensor, and engine wiring harness.
Unplug the electrical connector to the ignition coil.
Disconnect the spark plug wires from the coil, grasping the wire at the
boot to disconnect it. Use a plug wire removal tool, if possible, and
mark down each wire to remember which coil it connects to.
Remove the mounting bolts to the ignition coil; a flare-nut
wrench will help prevent stripping the bolts' edges. Remove the coil
from its valve cover.
Inspect the condition of the spark plug wire boot. Replace
the wire if the boot is torn, cracked or deteriorated in any way. Coat
the boot's interior with a silicone dielectric compound before
Insert the replacement ignition coil into the valve cover.
Tighten the mounting bolts to the correct torque for your vehicle. It is
usually small enough to be measured in inch pounds.
Reconnect the spark plug wire and the electrical connector
to the coil. Replace all parts that were removed or unplugged to reach
the coils and connect the negative battery cable.
Unless Bose offers a longer cable, which it doesn't sound like or they would suggest you buy one from them, your options are limited to splicing. Just make sure your connections are good and protected with electrical tape not duct tape or scotch tape. You can even use small wire nuts and electrical tape.
I AM WIREING PROBLEMS ALSO HAVING I KEEP BLOWING FUSE NUMBER 10 IS THIS WHY YOU ARE REWIRING THE DASH FROM SHORTING PROBLEMS AND BLOWING FUSES .I WAS WONDERING IF THE ELECTRICAL IS A PROBLEM IN THESE CARS
Yes, run a black wire from connector (a) to one terminal of your new light fitting if you are installing a metal fitting you will need to connect an earth wire also.
If you are reusing the same pull switch and it is still connected as you describe then the floating end near the light is probably the switched live conductor, so you could connect this to the live terminal of the new light. but be careful it may be live.
Caution always disconnect the power before working on electrical wiring.
We had the same issue with our 2000 Pontiac Montana.Brake lights, turn signal lights, running lights, back-up lights and emergency flasher didn’t work at all or operated at random. The cause: poorly designed aluminum contacts on the tail light circuit board and wiring harness connector arced over and disintegrated with normal use.
Pull the tail lamp assembly, remove the electrical connector and look for burned contacts on the connector plug and the connector socket (they call this long plastic piece with the socket the circuit board: it includes the four bulb sockets.Replace the circuit board and the wiring connector.
You can DIY this job with basic auto mechanical/electrical skills and tools. The two circuit boards and the two connectors set me back $230 (2009 cost) for new parts.The electrical contacts on the factory replacement parts are improved.
I needed a T-30 torx driver to remove the tail light assembly (you need this to change out bulbs, too), wire cutters, wire strippers, electrical tape and an electrical lug crimper to do the job.
