EZ Wiring Project

There are four sections all zip tied seperately; front, dash, engine, and rear. They said "do not cut the three zip ties closest to the fuse block". I just don't see how the block could be mounted flush with all the wires there. I went ahead and clipped the ties, and am in the process of leading each wire to it's home. There are a few I don't need; third brake light, electric fan, ac comp., and a couple more.

Re: EZ Wiring Project

Ya got me on this one.. I would maybe assume that they said not to cut them so they all stayed together going through the firewall? Maybe there's something I'm missing but I can't immediately see any other reason..

Re: EZ Wiring Project

Well, I feel better that one of you didn't have "the reason" right away. They aren't tied on yours are they? On my S-10 they just go all over. If they are secured along their length of travel, that should be good. We'll see!!

Re: EZ Wiring Project

Tim,

I am using the factory wiring harness but no there's no kind of zip tie or anything holding the wires together right off of the through bulkhead connection. Then again, It's old and I've made many changes through the years.. Now ya got me thinking!

I did change out the harness with a real nice one I found 10 to 15 years ago...

Just a thought though, Don't cut those wires off.... Run them out of site in a secure place and tape them off.. You Never know when you just may decide you want to add whatever they go to.. Just ask how I know!!!!!!

PS: There's lots of room between the fender and inner fenderwell. That's where I have my wires run through.. Just an idea

Re: EZ Wiring Project

That harness didn't come with a bulkhead connector?
The inside harness should be mounted on the fire wall, and your engine/under hood wires will bolt onto the bulkhead connector from the engine/firewall side making a tight seal.
