Re: Mystery wires
Thanks for the replies guys.
Sorry for the delay, had to work this weekend.
2 female plugs off the same harness. 3 wires each. A loop that supposed to have a switch in the middle.
Same color/gauge wires on both sides. Looks like a 10ga red, no stripe or hash marks. A much larger gauge red with no stripe or hash marks. And a large gauge black with a white stripe.
Guessing the reds are faded red, could be a dark pink...
And the larger gauge wires are really big. I know it's not a great picture, I don't bend like I used to, but the orange wire in the pic is a 14ga. The small red wire is a 10ga... And the other two are huge.
I've got a 5 volume manual on CD for 75-76 Ford cars, but it doesn't have a complete wiring diagram for each model. It has diagrams of different sections... charging system, lighting system, HVAC....etc.
Mike, over at FCA postulated they may be for power door locks, which my car doesn't have. Power windows, not locks.
