help with under dash wiring

Ok I have sourced an uncut harness and put them side by side with my hacked harness. I believe I have everything hooked back up as it should be. I would like some clarification if you all don't mind. These are all under the dash of the passenger side of my 93 YJ, at the furthest end of the harness.

I found a diagram of dash wiring floating around here somewhere but it didn't really match mine.

I also understand there are going to be several plugs that will not be used from options that my jeep doesn't have. (AC, hard top, etc).

The speaker plugs are confusing to me, as I have looked on and spoke with METRA regarding their harness adapters and none look like they will fit.

All the wires i'm working with



starting from the closest to the fuse box (in this picture) and moving out towards the passenger side.

above and below are the same connector, just diff angles

further down this "arm of wires is this connector"

above and below are same connector, diff angles

I believe this one goes to the vent box, sticks straight into the connectors sticking out of the face of the box

and this one goes on top of the blower (hope i'm getting the names correct

I believe I have these two plugged in correctly as demonstrated in this photo

and these are at the furthest end of the harness

here are the two metra wiring harness that their website suggests for the speakers.

72-1002

70-1002


the second one is listed as jeep/eagle 4 speaker power. I just don't see where either of these harness's will plug into the stock dash wiring.

Kjg, I just replaced my YJ's factory stereo and used both Metra wiring harnesses you posted. The speaker harness is used to hook up aftermarket speakers. The white end of the harness connects to the factory speaker connector and the red female ends connect to the male terminals on the aftermarket speaker. The second wiring harness you posted is the harness for the stereo itself. It plugs into the factory harness and then you have to splice the cut ends of the harness to the harness that comes with your new aftermarket stereo. I don't know about any of the plugs depicted in your first post though, sorry.

Would it be possible for you to take a picture of the factory speaker plug?

I believe I have the same plugs not hooked to anything under my dash. I have a aftermarket raido and stuff. And everything works just fine for me. Also 1of the plugs look like plugs for the switch on the door to turn the light on when you open it.

Ok I've got a few more, I thought I was done. All of these stem from just right of the steering column. I believe several are related to the hard top.
All the mystery wires

Mystery wire number 1 (flat, 3 pin connector)


mystery connector 2 (black) and 3 (red) (black I believe is the rear wiper)


mystery connector number 4, i believe this is a light that sits above the hard top switches to illuminate them... can someone please confirm this.

mystery connector number 5...this is the one I previously posted, still no clue what it goes to. I thought maybe it goes to an AC unit, can someone with AC confirm or deny this? In the last two pictures you can see the pins...the center pin on the side with 3 pins is ignition hot.
