Green wire and brown wires....?

I've got a couple wires that I am not sure where they originate or go on my 69, (they are hanging loose). One is a green wire coming out of the connections to the driver's side of the master cylinder and the other is a brown wire up near where the horn relay is on the radiator support. Any ideas?

Re: Green wire and brown wires....?

I believe, and the experts will correct me if I'm wrong, the green wire should be a dark green, 20 gauge, and that would be your temp sensor wire. The brown wire, 16 gauge, will be your engine light (GEN light), aka idiot ligh in your dash. Turn your key to the run position and if neither your engine light nor your temp light come on then that will most likely be your loose wires.

Re: Green wire and brown wires....?

Thanks. Further clarification needed....I have another green wire, that looks aftermarket, attached to the temp sensor on the manifold next to the thermostat. This wire, I believe goes to my console temp gauge. Would the dark green only go to the idiot lights? Also, the brown was just tucked away next to the driver side front cocktail shaker. Where should this be atached?

Re: Green wire and brown wires....?

There are only two green wires in the loom coming from the firewall, dark green for the temp sensor and light green which is for your high beam on the headlights. If the dark green wire is to your temp sensor, which does go to your TEMP light on your dash, than someone may have added the third green wire for whatever reason.

The brown wire is to be attached to your voltage regulator on the far right prong. There are three additional brown wires in that loom which are for your parking lights/turn signals. Hope this helps.

You need to pick up a copy of the 69 AIM (Assemble Instruction manual). It has the wiring diagrams in it as well as the rest of the details you will need in the future.
