Where do these wires go to?

I have 2 wires from the dash harness that I can't figure out where they go. The first one is a thick brown wire around the ashtray(is it the ground for the cigar lighter? It is thicker than the cigar lighter orange power wire) The second is a thin brown wire coming out of the ubderdash harness right next to the fuse panel. It has a grommet on it like it would go through the firewall.

The heater switch already has its connector on it. It must be a high consumer because of its wire size.

ok there is another wire around there that is 16awg and it goes to the generator lamp but I don't know if is the same type of connector. you may want to check that. it has to be one of these to because I'm looking at the wiring schematic. also I need to know if this car has air conditioning.

The wire with the grommet looks to be the tach lead wire the end shown in picture hooks up to the distributor (-) side.

Never under estimate the extended reach of a woman with a rolling pin !

Bingo on the one. Tach wire.

No joy here on the other one.

Yeah I thought that 1 wire most have likely gone through the firewall but I wanted to make sure. I guess I can call the harness manufacture to find out the other one

Re: Where do these wires go to?

OK I think I figured it out after reading the whole AIM. It looks like it plugs in to the a/c harness for cars with a/c. On page 234 of the AIM it shows the 14ga brown wire coming from the fuse panel & says wire is part of instrument harness. The connector that plugs into this says it is part of the a/c harness & it goes to the low blower switch. I email factory fit to verify. What would we do without the AIM!!!
