Proportioner Valve Wire

I ran all new brake lines and installer a new proportioner valve. I went to plug in the valve and find that the valve has one wire connection and the harness wire has two wires. Can this be retro fitted or do I have to replace the prop valve? Its a cj7 with a yj interior so I had to use the yj harness for the transition from engine compartment to interior.

Connector

If the switch has a shroud around the center terminal, then this is the connector you need.

Yes, that is what I would need but what wire does it connect to on the two wire harness connection coming from the engine compartment wires?

I think you just splice the two wires together with the single wire. I say "think" because that's what I did but haven't hooked it up to see if it works yet. I got that info from the experts on here.
Do a search "converting brake pressure switch from 2 wire to 1 wire configuration"

I'll do that search. I also "Think" you may be right so maybe I'll just splice em and see if it works.

Yes, That's all you need to do.

One wire runs to the parking brake and other wire runs to ignition switch.

The ignition switch connection turns on the brake warning light so you know the bulb is working before you drive. It just grounds the circuit momentarily when cranking.
