Limit switch harness routing

Can anybody take a picture or describe how the limit switch harness for the switches on the core support are run?

I think I've got the PS run properly, but the DS seems to be short, so I'm sure I've got something run incorrectly.

Thanks,
Jason

Re: Limit switch harness routing

I hope this helps. The blue wires go in to the bottom and the green on the RT and the purple on the LT go in to the top.

Re: Limit switch harness routing

still can't get the DS wiring to the switches in the capsule to go.

If you look at this, you can see on the top right the wiring, it has basically no slack.


This is the harness behind the core support where it runs:


Do you know where this ground wire goes?


The core support wiring fits just fine:

Re: Limit switch harness routing

Does these brown wires come right from the relays? Could you have the relays connected wrong? Or maybe the relay board was mounted too fare back on the fender.
I don't have any slack in those brown wires either but it does connect. Look at this picture and you can just see the wires going behind the headlight socket. This was before the restoration and you can hardly tell the colors of the wires.

Re: Limit switch harness routing

This is a picture of the mounting bolts of the relay board. I can see if someone mounted the board and used that prepunched hole to the rear of the bolts then the brown wire could be too short.

Re: Limit switch harness routing

Roger does your wiring harness lay on top of the inner fender, or go behind the fender on top of the inner fender?

It is ran inside of the fender. You can't see it in the engine compartment at all.

Well there we go! What a pain in the rear but at least I know what's going on now.

Re: Limit switch harness routing

Well I pulled out my headlight buckets, undid the entire harness and just re-ran it behind the fender. I ran out of time before I had to start making dinner but it sure looks like I got the inch or so of slack I needed!!!

Thanks so much Roger. If I'm ever in the area, I owe you a beer!

Glad I was able to help. You can keep your beer if you post some pics of the finished project.

Re: Limit switch harness routing

It actually still looks a little short!

I'm going to try and pull on it some and see if I can pursued it into place but if that doesn't do it I'm all out of ideas except for maybe cutting off the end and soldering on an extension.

Re: Limit switch harness routing

I got it!

Of course I've got some sort of bad ground because the headlights open up but don't close and the lights don't actually go on.

Re: Limit switch harness routing

Woot! I had my dimmer switch disconnected, headlights open and close and turn on!!!!
Driver side headlight is dim, and my parking lamps, turn signals and tail lights light up though with the battery plugged in though, so I need to track down a ground issue.
