I will be the first to admit wiring and me dont get along. My question is i have the painless wiring kit installed but where the does the console harness ( i have the harness from NPD) plug into? Do i have to buy the connectors as i dont think they are attached to the painless harness?
Thanks for your time

What year car? Did you order a harness for a console equipped car? If not there probably weill not be a plug to plug into. From the factory almost always if your car did not come with a console the plug will not be there.

Gregg, this subject has been discussed to death, and a search of this site would reveal the following: the Console Harness plugs into the Console Extension Harness. The Console Extension Harness plugs into the Dash Harness -- Maybe. There MAY be a plug on the Dash Harness for the Console Extension Harness (66 % of the '69 Chevelles I've owned had the plug, but never had the console). Look on the Dash Harness behind the Radio (where the Dash Harness branches), if you have the console plug that's where it will be. If your Dash Harness DOES NOT have the plug, you'll need to buy the plug from American Autowire and fabricate a short harness to splice into your Dash Harness. You can do a site search to find out where the wires attach.

I will be happy to address this for you. The problem that you have is that there won't be a plug for the console on a Painless harness ( as many have suggested that you look for) as they are very a generic harness and do not have the stock plugs like that on them unfortunately. They in no way, shape, or form look or install like a stock harness.

To tie the stock console harness into a Painless kit, You'll need to do the following:

splice/connect the orange wire in the factory console plug to the Painless courtesy circuit, the gray to the dash lamps circuit, the white to the courtesy lamp ground circuit, and the black to a ground. In addition, if it is an automatic car, you'll need to splice in the neutral safety switch and back up lamp leads.

These types of things are what separates our Classic Update kits from the other kits out there on the market as our kits address and come complete with these connections.

If you follow the directions above, everything should work fine. That is our console harness if it was purchased from NPD, but it's meant to install into a stock application, not an aftermarket harness. That is why you are having the issues that you are. Good luck, let me know if you need anything else.
