1999 Volvo V70 GLT Broken Wiring Harness

Post by WVMTNS » Mon Aug 15, 2016 10:41 am

I was working on my V70 replacing my PCV unit. I had the manifold setting to the side and it fell pulling some wires out of two harnesses just above the starter. I thought maybe the wires would color coordinate but as usual I was wrong. If anyone could send me a picture of the wiring harnesses or a description of where the go. Also the wires look like I should be able to strip the wire a little and press them back into place.
Thanks

Can you provide the wire colors on both sides of the connector including both the main color and the tracer color for the wires with a stripe? I'm trying to find the devices that the connectors go to and knowing the correct colors would be real helpful.

As far as striping the wires and shoving them back in place that won't work, or at least it won't work for very long. The connectors come with pins that crimp on then snap into the connector body. The other alternative is to snag them connectors off of a pick-n-pull car by cutting the wires back a couple of inches and then splicing the old wires on the harness to the replacement connectors. That is likely the easiest route since the crimp on pins take a special AMP connector tool to get the crimp correct.

Thanks Ozark.
I think I found a guy on CL that has what I need but might want to try selling entire harness which I don't need.
