Go to Autozone .com they have diagrams on line . You may have to register to gain access.

I have already been to autozone they can't tell if it's a ground wire or what that wire goes too


No, to there web sight for a wiring diagram.

Ok do u know it cause I called and they claim they can't get the diagram cause of the age of the car
