    Default Column Wiring

    Alright guys, heres a question for you...The wires that run into the plug that contain all the column wiring...I'm looking for some help on what color runs into what and also I have a second set that runs out the back of the column and I have no clue what they run too. I'm trying to tie these into a new harness from Kwik Wiring. Any help would be greatly accepted.

    The kwikwire manual has a diagram, there should be letters on the black plug that correspond to the component. The second set on the top of the column in the back has two plugs, these are related to your ignition. I don't have the kwikwire manual with me but this is close:

    try downloading the instructions from painless to see how the new wiring goes into the existing plug. Also suggest getting the service manuel. It will be your life saver and people like me will stop telling you to get it.

    I will be honest I really hate giving ya the easy route by giving you the link to some wiring diagrams. You really NEED to purchase the manuals for your Scout. They are the most important thing you can have.

    But here is the easy route.
