Building the Harness Part 2

Continuing on...

THe terminals will click when fully seated... pull slightly on them to be sure they fully seated... then turn the connector so the part that plugs in is facing you... Inside you'll see a white plastic lock... press down on that with a screwdriver until it clicks...

Now on to connecting up the Delphi Packard Connectors (C 152 and C162)

Grab one of the black connector housings and insert the sealed terminal end of the short Brown Wire in to Position A (you really have to look they are printed TINY!!)

The Short Black/Yellow goes in position B of the same connector...

press inwards until the terminal clicks in to place... then attach the gray secondary Lock

When Done.. should look like this

Do the same for the long wires for the remaining connector... (again brown wire to A... Black/Gray to B)

Final Steps... Forming the Harness and Applying Conduit...

Holding the wires Tightly tape all four wires coming out of the molex connector together about 1 inch from the back of the connector. Tape them together again about 2 inches from the back of the molex connector. this will form the breakout for the passenger side wires...

At this second tape mark, separate the long wires from the short ones.. and route them 90 degrees to the short wire ... (in a T)... with the wires pulled tight, tape the wires as they go in to their respective connectors about an inch from the back of the connector (black and brown with black tape don't show up worth a damn in pics so sorry no pic on this step...) Also tape the 2 long wires together every 15 to 20 inches or so just to hold things together..

when done it should look like this...

next apply your conduit to stopping at the tape marks just prior to the connectors and cut to fit... then secure the ends with zip ties.. and cut the ends of the ties off...

You now have a fog light harness that will work with the existing harness and the fog lights...

... Coming next.. (once they get here...) the installation of the fog lights in to the bumper, and the installation of the switch in the dash...

In the mean time... have fun!!
