not sure of your capabilities but have you ever redone a wiring harness before? i did an entire car once with no computer controls and it wasnt the easiest thing in the world. im sure adding in sensors and computer controls isnt going to make it any easier.

The wiring harness I am looking for is for the engine compartment. It runs from the computer module to the engine compartment and connects to all sensors under the hood. If I had the connectors to about five sensors I could splice into the harness. The problem is I had a fuel line rupture and catch on fire and burnt some wiring to several sensors such as the temp sensor and tach sensor. The fire wasn't real bad and didn't last long but was long enough to damage several connectors and wiring to the connectors. The engine and transmission and body are still in great shape and I was just trying to fix the car without putting thousands into it.

your best bet is to contact your local salvage yard. or www.car-part .com enter year, make, etc.
