So I'm in the middle of a 93 four banger conversion and during the peddle swap I yanked the steering column out. Once I went to button everything back up this wire had no home to return to. I looked on my 88 and it's not present on that car. I don't recall ever seeing this wire on any of my previous foxes as well.

The wire comes directly off of the dash harness that runs along the bottom of the cluster area by the column. Nothing missing off the multi switch or ignition switch area

Thanks

What engine harness and dash harness combination are you using ?

I was always taught that the 93 dash harness and the 89 engine harness weren't compatible....because of airbag connectors.

My swap is a 89 gt into a 88 4 cylinder notch. Everything swapped over easily.

Yeah a 89 main harness would not connect up right to a 93 dash/body harness. The car is a 93 coupe auto and I have a 93 main harness and o2 sensor harness i'll be using but haven't got that far yet. I just finished the engine bay, front suspension, peddles, throttle and clutch cables etc.

Nah clock spring connector is all good. Yeah i've heard of this harness that wasn't used as well but no one knows what it looks like. This may be that none used harness though

The colors of the wire are Purple/Orange, Red/Green, and Black
