Wiring Diagrams


If you haven't guessed, the Haynes manual's wiring diagram is VERY wrong especially for US 1500's. Tom O'Malley has spent many hours redesigning wiring schematics for maximum readability. They are the best diagrams I have ever seen saving me many hours troubleshooting. They are so good I wish I had thought of them. Tom, if you are out there, email us!

Here is a SET of wiring diagrams for the Overdrive wiring in PDF format. Since many manuals show the diagrams differently or poorly I have shown all options from all manuals I could find.

Here is an outside link explaining the colors of the wires and where they go.
