Looking for a high-res color wiring diagram for a 1985 CJ7. Links?

Thanks all

I also have a question regarding the 1978 color diagram that you can find out there. What is this item circled in red? I don't believe I have that in my 1985 CJ7...

You have one but it looks different in the older vehicles...
It's called a fuse block :wink2:

Around 1979, AMC went with a newer style fuse block. Probably like the one you have on your now.

Most circuits stayed the same, a few circuits changed. Most of the colors stayed the same

Just ignore the color error on the low/hi beams.... I was concentrating on the circuit numbers..

Do you mind just briefly explain what the codes mean? or what they correspond to? Sorry for the noob question. Just wrapping my head around everything before I start tackling the re-wiring job.

Thanks

The numbers are circuit numbers that you would find in most schematics of the CJ. I was just pointing out the circuit number's colors stayed the same up until 1982. Then they started to mace changes in the nomenclature although the colors and gauge remained mainly unchanged.

The Letters on later CJ's matched up with the letter designation on the bulkhead connector.

Thanks for the wiring diagram link. Very helpful!

Hello,
In going through this post I ended up a little confused. The original poster seems to have been working on an 83 CJ7 (or at least that is the only model in their signature). Can someone clarify what years this diagram covers? I am working on an 83 CJ7 that was left out in the desert for about 15 years and I am working to solve some light issues.

Thanks

The original schematic has glass fuses and an heater motor that is internal to the passenger compartment

This puts it in the range of 76 to 77.

Definitely not for an 83.

I'll see if I can find an 83 schematic someplace. I can't access my files onl;ine anymore.

Ok I know this is old but it is awesome. I just solved a backup light problem in less than 30 minutes. I know I am going to love this site. I have found a ton of information already just with the search function. This is my second jeep and it seems over the years the PO's just can't keep control of the wiring and though my current is no where near as bad as my last one it is still a mess.


Great Site!!

Thanks so much for this!
 
I just got a Jeep project which is part CJ5 1956 (Frame and various dash parts) and part 1978 CJ7, otherwise. However, it's a mess, clearly used as off road and farm vehicle, not up to CA code, and once I removed the custom dash I realized most of the wires are missing or cut, as well as an oil pressure gage wire off the 289 Stock Ford engine inside. See, a mess. So this diagram was a big smile for me, as I ordered an OEM harness to go with my OEM jeep dash. Now, just to figure out the 56 dash mounted ignition with my CJ steering column with no ignition key switch...

It's not that hard.

Start a new post when you get started and have some questions.
