    Hey Canyon, Mine is the same way.


    I need help with these 2 dash plugs. I don't see anything that they plug into.

    The black plug is for steering wheel controls.
    The beige plug is for either boost, hazard, or trunk release. I will check wire color tomorrow and find out.

    Hey guys,

    Can you clarify the power steering wiring. I am not able to find any plug in the harness that connects to the plug on the power steering pump. I checked every connector that I removed and was not able to find the same plug.

    Thanks,

    The power steering motor wire plugs into the fuse panel by engine.

    Or it can be connected directly to the battery. Install 60 amp fuse inline. Is that what you mean?

    Lonny, can you clarify how the info and return button replacements are wired? I have the connector pictured plugged into the steering wheel rotating connector, and the info button plugged into that. My info button and that flat connector both only have four wires and it appears they can be connected directly together.

    Thanks JSATX, Do you have a pic of the other side plugging into the motor itself?

    Thanks!

    If you are using the original buttons you can connect matching color to color and it should work.
    If you use your own buttons you will need a couple of resistors.

    I can get you a picture of the actual plug tonight. It is its own "mini harness" with just a power and ground wire.

    The large black power plug that plugs into the lowest position on the power steering unit is from a separate small wiring harness that we combine with the reworked harness.

    The harness from under my seat looks very different. How can I make it match?

    Thanks!

    I also had this problem just save the wires you are supposed to solder together to the seat harness. Then once you get the buttons from df kit car they will tell you how to wire them to the buttons directly from the harness

    Thanks, so I just leave it as is for now? I already soldered the connector on, just wasn't sure what to do with all the this?

    Yeah just wait and they will show you what to do once you get your button setup

    My goal is to use the main harness map to mock up the combined harness as close as I can with wire ties, test fit, and then wrap. I've got a few questions though.

    1. The blue measurements on the right side of the map are hard to read. What are those numbers?
    2. The pedal box grounds look pretty short on the picture--1"--compared to the videos--~6". What length works best?
    3. For the SS builds, does the boost gauge need to branch out somewhere around the instrument cluster wires?
    4. For the extended frames, do the extension wires need to be a few inches longer between the orange stars?
