last night i took the adventure to wire up my OHC..... i have run into a problem.

I wired up the temp sensor, dome light, map light, dimmer, and speed sensor.

the map lights and dome light work fine and well but the display is not working properly.

when i turn the truck on the screen lights up for about 2 seconds and then goes blank.

also, my radio doesnt work. i followed the wiring diagram supplied by n3elz and tapped into the wires in the back of the head unit. (yellow/black, blue/red) as for the speed sensor, i hooked it up to the GEM. (gray/black)

anyone see where i went wrong?

i figured i would update and respond to my last reply.....

long story short i neglected to push the mode button to turn it on. (lol)

my radio wasnt working due to the power switch wire coming out of the connector.

everything works great and im liking the new mod.

Is there any way you can repost a link to the wireing part of this install? The link at cardomain is broken. I'm going to grab a console the next time I hit the junkyard.

On the harness in front of me, I don't have Yellow/Gray, and I don't have the Group 4 (temp sensor) colors. Instead, I have purple/orange, dark blue/yellow, and Lt. Blue/Orange.
Anyone know which of these is the power wire?
Everything else is the same.

What year/make/model did the harness come from? Doesn't sound like a 95~2001 Explorer.

It came with the 2nd OHC I got off ebay, either from an Explorer or a Mountaineer (the auction didn't specify, it just said 95-01 Explorer/Mountaineer). Does the Mountaineer have different color wires?

Mountaineer and Explorer are electrically identical. Info on eBay is often unreliable. Got a picture of the console and harness?

The console looks right but the plug is probably from some other model.

This is something that I put together a few years ago. Maybe it will help you match up the codes:

Quote:
Here are the color codes and destinations for the Explorer Overhead Console. This would be useful for consoles that are missing the matching pigtail or those that have had the plug cut off. (Note: this wiring info applies to an Explorer console that does NOT have the sunroof switch. The sunroof style console wiring MAY be the same but I don't have one here to look at.)

~~~~~~~~

Look at the back of the 2 map light switches. Each has a WHITE and a BLACK wire. These color-matching pairs are spliced together and originally went to the plug connector.

The spliced together WHITE pair gets tapped into the BLACK/LIGHT BLUE hot wire of your trucks dome light (same CC Ranger & Explorer).

The spliced together BLACK pair gets tapped into the LIGHT GREEN/ORANGE wire of your trucks map light (same CC Ranger & Explorer). (NOTE: This LIGHT GREEN/ORANGE wire does not exist above the headliner on 2004+ Rangers and would need to be added)

~~~~~~~~

You will see a BLACK wire coming from the MODE switch. It is spliced together with the #2 wire from the microprocessor. This spliced together pair of wires goes to chassis ground.

~~~~~~~~

Look at the back (hidden side) of the console with the microprocessor positioned at the top. You will see 6 wires arranged crosswise above the microprocessor. In the Wiring Manual these are numbered 1 through 6, starting from the right to the left.

like this--> 6-5-4-3-2-1

#1 GRAY/YELLOW to 12V hot in RUN or RUN/ACC (Explorer Color Code)
#2 BLACK (again, spliced with black wire from MODE switch) to chassis ground (Explorer CC)
#3 GRAY/BLACK tapped to VSS wire on GEM, some models without GEM can tap into the GY/BK at the PCM (same CC Ranger & Explorer)
#4 LIGHT BLUE/RED or RED/BLACK tapped to instrumentation illumination (most Rangers use LIGHT BLUE/RED)
#5 DARK BLUE/YELLOW to outside temp sensor (Explorer CC, does not wire directly to Ranger harness)
#6 DARK BLUE/WHITE to outside temp sensor (Explorer CC, does not wire directly to Ranger harness)

Put this info together with a good set of installation instructions and you should be able to overcome being connectorless.
