Unfortunately, even if you get the wiring sorted out, the Ford radio chassis does not fit in a GM - the mounting is entirely different. The wiring harnesses and colors are also entirely different. Maybe best to find a GM radio - most of the GM radios should fit and plug right in.

I have a 88 Z24 Cavalier that when you start it it will start and die like its not getting fuel. we have checked the injectors the spark plugs and the injector wires everything works perfectly fine bu


on older models we had a procedure as follows.
hook up a remote starter switch turn key to on position and crank.
if there is no attempt to start or fire then the problem is in the electrical wiring. won't run in ignition on but will run in ignition start position.
They used to use fusible links that blew when they got old.
hope this helps.

My 88 cavalier z24 starts to run rough as it warms up it is throwing ecm code 43. what is esc and how do you fix low voltage to it


Electronic Spark Control runs a self check and it failed the check. You need to replace the HEI module inside the distributor, check all the wires and connectors for rust and clean as needed.

Wire harness dont know how to hook up radio cause colors dont match up


If your puting in a aftermarket stereo system, they make adapters that will plug into the factory harness and have a diagram of what to hook up to your new stereo. They should have one of these at a stereo store or even auto parts or Wal Mart. I had to put one in my 89 Caravan and 88 Prelude. I got them from the local stereo store and they were about $12 bucks or so. Depends on how much your stereo place overcharges.

Hope this works for you....

1989 Z24, 2.8v6 intermittent stalling while driving. Sometimes will restart, but not go far, sometimes will not restart at all. Usually starts fine the next day, may run OK several days before acting up...


the pcm may have a cracked board, i had an 88 cavalier z24 with the same problem, replced the ecu and it ran fine, the problem is that the boards inside the pcm crack and lose connection, the next time it acts up open the glove box and try tapping on the pcm, if the car responds at all, the pcm is bad
