    Posted: 26 May 2010 at 8:37pm
I recently purchased a wiring harness and boy am I confused.   I am wondering if anyone has any good information on how to install the new harness. What would be the most beneficial to me would be a manual of some kind that shows step by step how to install every peice of the harness. I realize that is asking a lot, so does anyone have any tips, tricks, pictures or anything that can make this simpler.
One thing I've already noticed is I dont see anything in the harness that will connect to the brake switch on the front of the master cylinder. Is there more wiring I need thats not included in the harness I bought?
I appreciate any advice I can get.

Thanks
Greg

Why not start with pictures of what you bought and tell us where you bought it.

Thanks for the intrest Ralf.

I bought it from Midwest Jeep Willys out of Illinois. It's the wiring harness with turn signals and horn on the fender. Atleast thats how they're always listed as I've seen. As far as pictures,,,,,, I honestly dont know if I can get them on here. I am not a computer guy.

did they give you instructions? If the wire colors/tracers are the same as what walcks produces I could scan the instruction sheet.  here is a basic wiring layout to give you an idea. if you search around here you will find diagrams for the High beam switch and light switch as well.

They did give me a paper that shows all the diferent parts of the harness such as the main harness and so forth, but all it says is for example,,,,,,   Main Harness,,, and it shows a line with diferent lines coming of of it which are numbered. When you look at the numbers, all it says is the colors of the wires and the guage of the wire. It does not say anything about where to apply it.
I'm hoping to find something that details what each part of the harness is and where it goes.

Thank-You
Greg

The diagram above that Jon posted is about as good as it gets. I would say get started by using the above diagram and at least get the main harness in. The job is intimidating at first but once you start then things seem to get easier if you pay close attention to the diagram.
Dive in and ask questions if you get stuck. Also, show pics of your progress and where your problems exist.

Any chance you could scan the instructions pages & send to me?  I'm trying to keep track of all the different vendors harnesses, just to have the info to answer questions like yours.

Dang Sean, that second diagram you posted is so COOL! I have never seen that one before.
I like the parts where you can turn on or off what you are working on at the time. VERY nice!!

Mike:

It's been posted a number of times, but only in the context of individual threads.  It just can't accommodate all the possible owner "upgrades".

I'll try & get it up in the FAQ later.

Ok, I tried to hook up the wires like in the diagram but I get nothing. I have a 12 volt system with a solenoid and a security switch.  I didn't hook up everything like the lights and etc, because I have a new Jeggs wire harness that will be installed once the body gets painted. Any Ideas on how to safly wire it to run onto a trailer. I'm moving it to Pa.

To get it to run, look at the diagram.  From the battery do the red wiring  to the ign. sw..  Then do the green wiring from the ign.  Then take a heavy battery cable from the pos. to the starter side of the solinoid.  after it starts take the battery cable to the starter off.

WOW Sean that is a great diagram!     Problem is I cant print it. I want to print it off so I can take it to the shop. I've tried to print it at work and at home with no luck. Is there any other way you can get it to me so I can print it?
Thank-You very much!

That's cause it's not a single page, but 24 individual image overlays, turned on/off as you select the options.

Quick workaround:  pick the "options" you want (coil, junction block, horn, etc.), then use your computers "screen snap"/"window snap" function to create a printable image.
