Hi, Greg. Here's the story: The car was running before I had to make it "legal" in CA...seat belts, etc. In the process, I also had to remove most of the dash (heater, vents, gages, etc.). Anyway, long story short, I decided to also change the ignition key set, as I could remove the key and the car would continue to run. Unfortunately, during this process, I pulled (too hard) and removed the wires. I know what is there works fine, just don't know where to put the wires. I have five (5) connections: (1) Purple wire (1) Pink wire (1) Green wire (1) Red wire (1) COMBINATION Orange/Brown wire I have a standard ignition unit, and have replaced the key set already. Any help is appreciated.
