( see picture) Light Blue , Yellow , Black w/ a Orange stripe are the colors of the wires in question . Does anybody know where that plug goes into ? These 4 wires go directly on the terminals of the resistor. I have the factory chassis manual and can’t see where this would plug into . Thanks in advance

    I don’t remember ever seeing a connection like that but if someone had a pictures of these 2 plugs joined that would shed some light on this .

    Obviously, that connector is long gone, but what difference would that make? As long as you had the wiring right, everything should work.

    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg That makes sense Larry; I’m looking at the plugs now ; the types of plugs are not even close. Possibly might have been an adaptor joining them but can’t see how anything could be joined to the 5 way plug. . It is completely tucked up behind the control panel . The bezel and the lower dashboard directly above the ignition switch surround more than half way around the HVAC control panel . Another area that I’m not understanding is do any of the 5 wires for the switch go through the bulkhead connector ? In the back of my FSM , another detailed schematic shows the black/orange going through the connector . I’ll send you a photo of that . Thanks again Larry

    Rich, if it was me, I'd just order new harnesses. :D

    I did find Larry for the a/c system and specific fr the 68 skylark. As is many things for the 68’s it has to be made to order. I’m trying to get a photo of completed one to see how close - different it is to what I have. Also it is 2-3 weeks to put together and ship . I’m thinking back to the other 2 68’s I’ve owned in the past 32 years and the 68 GS 400 convertible had switch problems, I believe melted plugs, shorts, the like. Can’t remember the exact wiring layout except the switch removal took small mirror, 3/8 swivel socket and was a general pain in the ass
