Wiring harness/PCM pinout 95/96 Explorer
I'm swapping the 4.0L OHV engine in my 95
Explorer for a 4.0L OHV engine out of a 96.
I want to use the wire harness that came with the
96 engine, as it is in better shape than the one in
There are a few slight differences in some of the
Mainly the two connectors that route to the
I have the 96 4.0L OHV Pinout diagram but cannot
find a 95 4.0L OHV PCM Pinout diagram to
compare the two.
I plan on cutting the needed grey connector off my
95 harness and splicing it to the 96 harness...only
there are two extra wires on the 96 harness grey
connector that are not on the 95.
The two harnesses are nearly identical except for
the shape of some of the connectors like the
synchronizer, vacuum selenoid, etc.
I really don't want to take all that stuff off the old
engine just to use the old harness.
The newer 96 engine has a complete harness and
it would be great if I could keep it and use it with
the 95 PCM. The PCM connectors are the same.
I believe I have OBD 1 & OBD2. I have the OBD 1
connector under the hood near the fuse box and I
have the OBD2 connector under the steering wheel.
Can someone please tell me if the newer harness
will work, or know the differences between the 95
& 96 PCM Pinout?
A 95 PCM Pinout diagram would be helpful also.
Thanks in advance.
Might be a good idea to take the PCM from the 96 engine along with the engine and harness. Just make sure you locate and diagram all the sensors and they are present on the 95.
