Any easy way to thread wire of the OHC...

through the fire wall? The only thing that I've connected were the dome light. All the other woring is hanging down from the A-pillar. Please, show me the way.

I used the rubber grommet that the parking brake cable goes out through. Or is it for something else? Anyway, there is a large rubber grommet under the dash on the drivers side, below the master cylinder level. I made a small slit in the periphery of it and I have bunches of wires threaded through there.

The only wire you need to pass through there is one pair for the sensor. If you use a twisted pair in a "sheath", that's only one cable to pass through and it's very easy. I do hope you're not using the original harness that far down.

Nope, the original wiring ends at the begging of the a pillar. I'll take a gander at it tommorow.

Look in my EATC how-to on my Cardomain site. There's pictures of some Ford sensor styles and except for the wire color, the EATC and OHC styles resemble one another.

OHC sensors have blue wires, one with a white strip, and the other with a yellow stripe.

It's on page 15 of my site.
