SOURCE: Does anyone have a wiring diagram for an 86 El camino

You can pick up a Haynes manual on it at like Auto Zone and it has wiring diagrams in the back. Shows color codes on wires and where they run. Hope this helps

did you get an answer to this question?
Basically you need the DRAC out of the donor vehicle. It is located behind the glove box. 3"x3" square box. Depending on axle gear ratios and tire size you may need to change the jumper settings to allow your speedometer to read properly. This is a very simple procedure.
To convert any 88 and later to the 94 dash you will need not only the drac but get it's harness with at least 6" of its wiring as well.
You will need the 94 dash plug also with at least 6" of wiring on it too.

My temperature & fuel gauge doesn't work how to troubleshoot

To troubleshoot, I need year--make--model, vehicle sold in the US.
I'd check the coolant temp sensor and wiring circuits. The same thing for fuel gage sending unit. Sometimes for the fuel gage sending unit, I get a couple of resistors one represents empty, the other represents full. If the gage reacts properly then the problem should be the sending unit in the gas tank.

Fuel gage not working

Check the work. The fuel level wiring might not have gotten plugged in. Also, if the fuel pump was a pain to get out for whatever reason, the wiring on the inside might have gotten broken off or the arm that holds the float got bent. Lastly, it doesn't happen a lot anymore but sometimes the float just sinks and stays there. The newer floats are made of foam so they tend to last.

Fuel gage not working

Fuel gauge problems are commonly the result of faulty electrical grounding at the tank or a problem with the sending unit inside the tank but can also be caused by faulty wiring or a bad fuse.

Gas gage not working

Maybe a problem with instrument cluster?
Usually the circuit works off resistance to ground. The sending unit in gas tank provides resistance to ground. The signal wire for fuel gage is a purple wire, if goes to fuel pump wiring connector. With key on, use digital multimeter, check for voltage. If no voltage, either problem with wiring circuit or instrument cluster. W/0 looking at instrument cluster, I don't know if you can replace gage itself w/o replacing instrument cluster?

If voltage on the purple wire, ground it, while a helper watches the gage, if the gage starts reacting, then check the grounds for fuel pump wiring connector, if that checks ok, suspect the fuel pump sending unit has a problem.

How do you fix wiring for 1988 ford ranger4x4 wiring to the fuel pump

Are you wanting to wire voltage or ground circuits? Remember, you have to deal with the fuel gage sending unit circuit or the fuel gage won't work.
The basics, if single wire dedicated circuit, leave a pigtail wire, both ends, as long as the problem is between the pig-tails, run a new wire, splice into pig-tails. The new wire can lay anywhere till you do some testing to see if it's going to work.
I short-handed this post a little. I wasn't sure exactly what you have going on?

Had new fuel pump put in, now fuel gauge won't work, registers right when you start but goes to e immediately

I need the year--make--model. I can't look up any wiring w/o year--make--model.
Some vehicles will do a gage sweep when you first turn on. On some, the fuel sending unit is monitored by the pcm, the pcm will send serial data to instrument cluster for the fuel level gage. If the pcm detects a problem, the gage may default to empty.
It just depends on the vehicle.
