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
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.
