1979-1993 Mustang Ignition Switch Repair Harness
Damaged or malfunctioning ignition switch harnesses are common in 1979-1993 Fox Body Mustangs. This can cause hard start or no start conditions that could leave you stranded at any time. Don't get caught with a car that won't start, pick up this 5.0 Resto ignition switch repair harness and get it fixed today! This harness includes one connector and 7 pigtail connectors to help get your switch functioning properly again.
I was having "brown out" problems when everything was turned on at the same time. Ford had done a recall on my 1988 Mustang but it had never been completed. They replaced my ignition switch, but much to my dismay, not the wiring connector plug. On the way home that day smoke came out of my steering column. I turned off the ac blower and it quit. I took off the column covers and found the melted and cracked connector. (When asked I was told it wasn't covered in recall). So burn up my Mustang instead!!
I decided to do it myself. My service guy decided to give me a handful of those crimp on wire butt connectors with the heat shrink to help me out and do a better repair. The kit comes with 7 jumper wires in large gauge so try to get the smaller gauge wires out in one piece and plug into the new plastic holder or you'll need to find some more jumpers for the smaller gauge wires..
The factor that would make this a "true ten" would be the addition of a wire connector kit with the heat shrink feature in the kit ad well as a couple of smaller gauge jumpers.
Do one wire at a time to assure proper placement in the harness as the jumper colors are not a match. You'll need a good wire crimper and a heat source to melt the shrink wrap. Remove the column covers and lower dash covers to give yourself room to work. After that no more brown outs.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
