1. The wires coming into the pigtail (see pic 32) should be the same color on both sides of it -- or did Ford change wire colors coming in/out of a pigtail/connector?
Yes. I know of a few examples of where Ford changed wire colors on each side of the connector.
The EVTMs are great at showing this in the diagrams. Give me a few mins and I’ll see if I can find that wire and tell you of it should match or not.
That’s the grey 12-pin right?
