Wiring Harness
« on: March 22, 2018, 05:08:57 PM »
I apologize if there IS a thread on wiring harnesses, i just cant seem to find them, or if there are the diagrams in those threads it seems they are alll part of those old photobucket archive of photos we had, which since have long been dead , and arent hosted any more,

Anyways, i was driving the other day after working on the choke/carb it seems i had a bad short, or loss of ground, and it fried wires that bolt into the selenoid, it started as a 1 green wire prong that split into 2 reds past an insulator, One MUST have been powering most accessories, the other im not sure, but after blowing one wire, i rigged it and jumped the selenoid (i had to move it from where it died, or risk tow/impound) It seemed fine, but then the unmistakable smell of burning wire, plus haywire electrics, wipers going on by themselves, i didnt wait to see and count what else was turning itself on, as i had my hazards on the whole way home. now im in a real pinch as to WHAT shorted, WHERE and HOW i lost the ground.

I am pretty sure I have a complete wire harness for an SX4. Most of the wiring will be the same, but the rear portion will be different. I believe it is from an '82.  If you need it, let me know.  Thanks, Rich

I undoubtedly need a chunk of it, I'm tracking down what's damaged I think it's just one loom of the 2 or 3 off the battery, what would you want for the whole thing? I'm thinking I should bite the bullet and replace most all of it

hi what year is your Eagle, and is it stock? 84 and up harnesses are different from 83 down, with the 82 being a one year. Different computers. That said, if you only need a section or two, any may work, but be careful  good luck, gz

It seems my harness being an '82 will not work as a complete replacement, but the bulk of the engine bay harness should work. The thing to do would be to remove the bad harness, and remove the sheathing from both harnesses. You can then compare the wiring, and use the wires from the donor harness that are the same.
