This is about the 3 time i have writen about this dash it is a 71 chevelle ss dash but some wires were cut one was the wire that went the passanger door for the dome light the other from what i have found out from this sight is that it is the flasher box wires but ,my Question is this I am putting this dash in a 70 chevelle that at one time was a malibu but the ss dash has more wires then the maibu and i have no idea were they all go, My other question is this the dash does not say park revese ect. on the dash so i came the idea that it was either auto in the floor or manual if this the case should i change the harnes so i know where every thing goes and no extra wires thanks

The Extra wires are probably to your reverse lights and nuetral safety switch. Auto floor shift cars has the switch located on the shifter on the floor. Column shift has it on the lower part of the steering colmn.

With a little time the problems can be figured out. A new dash harness is around $400.00.

If im not mistaken the harness is the same for floor or column. If it is a floor shift there will be a console extension harness leading to the console to connect the reverse and nuetral safety to the main harness.I assume that the harness you have is the harness that goes with the SS dash.Auto will be a little different than manual.I am working on the same type switch over now,its a 71 Malibu with me putting in a 70 SS dash.

Need to post more specific information on what problem you are having.
Wire colors would also help.
Also try breaking up the sentences. They are just a little hard to read.

Does your dash have all the gauges Tach,Amp,and Temp gauges. If it does then you need to order a harness for a 1970 SS with gauges. Also make sure that if you car is an A/C car you let them know you have A/C when ordering.
