Re: new wiring

I have never heard of one. But one can get bits and pieces from the AIM. Just have to go from section to section to find it. Most of it is in UPC 12. But for "options", you have to go to that specific UPC/area and see if you can figure it out. Most have the routing and clips, etc. shown. Otherwise, one has to just try to look at every picture they can of the area and, again, piece it all together. I look at postings here or engine bays or trunks. Cars that are for sale also help. If you bought AAW harnesses, the clips should lign up. That way, you can kind of tell if you are on the right track... If you take a look at the AIM and get most of it, we can probably help with the rest.

Re: new wiring

Agree with CB's suggestions and mine is to lay out the new harness on the floor and 'trial fit' the harness to its location in the car. Then pick up the harness and install.

All of these suggestions are given for a new harness in hand or getting ready to purchase. Add into a standard equipment harness those options in the car already, ie, console, A/C, etc. As I read, most vendors will 'custom' make your harness so to speak.

Not having ever done the science project of installing/replacing a harness, I would take as many pictures as I could of the existing harness, if one is installed, and use them for future reference, ie, colors and placement of connectors to function.

Installing the new harness, I would start at the dash, get it laid out and in place as much as one could, then do the body harness, the rear lights, gas tank, dome light(s), and maybe an electric fuel pump, even if one was not going to be installed. If battery was going in the trunk, now is the time to wire it up. I would finish with engine harness, firewall forward. Options here are internally regulated alternator, EFI, electric fan(s), electronic distributor/ignition, etc. The list goes on.........

Having an Assembly Instruction Manual helps.
