I put pics here so it could be seen. The two wires im holding are the reverse lights. for some reason with the key on there is power there weather the trans in reverse or not ( manual trans ). The wires behind are the wires from the new harness.
<Front> RT Turn
<Front> LT Turn
Can someone please help me. I would really like to get my Cj back on the town.
Well there's your problem, You have a Witch in your steering column.
The wires behind are the wires from the new harness.
Turn flasher (From Turn Signal Flasher)
RT Stop (To Right Rear Turn/Brake Light)
LT Stop (To Left Rear Turn/Brake Light)
Hazard (From Hazard Flasher)
Brake Switch (From Brake Switch)
Horn (To Horn Relay)
Dash Lamp (TO Automatic Transmission PRNDL indicator)
<Front> RT Turn (TO Front Right Turn Signal AND Speedometer Right Turn indicator)
<Front> LT Turn (TO Front Left Turn Signal AND Speedometer Right Turn indicator)
I would not guarantee the color codes in my picture. The manufacturers seem to put any combination in they choose.
You are going to have to pull the turn signal switch out and hunt down each wire.
In this case I would just buy a new Turn Signal and install it and you don't have to spend time figuring out were the wires go.
Isn't there a connector for the turn signal on the Centrec harness?
