you can make your own connector, or you can just buy one from summit... or just about any other place that sells parts for custom rides.

have you replaced the temp sensor on the t-stat housing? also, have you traced the wiring from the sensor at the t-stat housing to make sure it's still hooked into the wire harness properly? the sensor at the back of the motor has absolutely nothing to do with how the motor runs, it is ONLY for the gauge on your dashboard. the one in the t-stat housing is the one that feeds input to the computer.

No this one is special looking. It has a specific "cut out" that I can't make. I haven't traced the wires but the loom is still intact and I hooked it up the proper way. My guess is that the PO couldn't figure out what was wrong with the gauge and replaced it and bypassed it.

I really need to figure out what the other wires go to as well...seems this is going to be a nightmare of wiring issues.

C2truck I fixed the Google search link. Try it out now.

The Morris 4x4 has the wiring diagrams to search the factory service manual for the wiring.

temp sensor thread:

Here is your temp sensor connector I think.

I think you need to do the puck and pull yard then. 91 to 95 on most Chrysler should work. Bring the sensor along.

Don't really want to pay a million dollars to have it diagnosed. That's why I was wondering if anyone on here knew what they went to??

I understand that, but I really need to figure out why it's running so bad right now. That connector will just make my temp gauge read right...correct?

Anyone around dfw have the same model jeep as mine? It would be easier to just look at another one and see where they plug in at. Let me know

I have been pretty busy but tomorrow I will finally get some time to pop my hood and take pictures of where all those plugs go. Then I'll let you know what I found and post the pics

First picture; do you have the windshield washer tank? Those two plugs could be for that. OR it could be for your horn and fog light harness.

Second picture: I think the second picture is for your AC unit. There is probably another black skinny round plug in that area also which on my YJ is also unhooked.

Third/fourth picture that is a vacuum release (one way valve for your vacuum operated front axle disconnect. Mine just dangles there also.


Fifth picture: Temp sensor plug. That I think you already know about.

Sixth picture: Isn't that the same plug in the second picture?

I'm in doubt about my guesstimates. Why does that plug in the first picture look like the temp sensor plug??? I thought it was already plugged into a new temp sensor in the T-stat housing. IF that is the TS plug and it is not plugged into a good sensor threaded into the ZT-stat housing that YJ will run like crap if at all.

In pic. 5 that you posted you have a sensor in your hand. It is in the front and should screw onto the the hosuing of the tstat. Did you put that one in its place?

Yes. I replaced the sensor and put the old wire back in. What does the vacuum line go to? My four wheel drive works just fine. Not sure about the washer tank but I'll took. What about the two on the drivers side? Thanks guys
