1994 Chevy 1500 starter wiring -please help! its all different!!

Asked by Jan 26, 2018 at 01:08 PM about the 1994 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Silverado Extended Cab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey folks need some help finding out about how
the original wiring goes for this 94 K 1500 pickup.
I'm trying to get it fixed up for my mother, as my
step father recently passed away and he was the
wrench around the house. It was his truck and he
had done some alterations and modifications
throughout the years..for whatever reason, he was
replacing wiring with colors that didn't match the
original so I'm pretty much starting from scratch
between alternator the ignition switch Etc. I've got
the purple larger gauge wire going from the S
terminal on the solenoid two my ignition switch,
but that's about it. Small black and brown wires
coming out of firewall on driver side go where? I've
included some photos of my issues. any help
would be much appreciated! thanks

If this is a chevy why is the picture of a ford solenoid / starter relay ??? Try going to Mitchells diy . com and buy a online manual ( 30 days for 15 dollars ) ( model specific ) which will give you access to any wiring diagram you might need !! What was the original problem anyway ???


Buy some terminal ends at the parts store an stake on pliers so as to assure a good connection and not make it look like there was a butcher under the hood!!!
