Look at wire MESS

Good morning. Last night I posted on WF YJ with my issue. Titled
Please HELP !! Wire harness 88y

I just took 2 pics, hope someone can help.




I need to know how to connect all this back together?
Here are the colors
wire harness ======= L-rear tail light wires
blue ===================blue
brown w/green ===========brown w/green
solid brown ==============brown
tan ====================tan
grey w/blk ===============grey w/blk
orange ==================orange
blk w/white ==============blk w/white
pink ====================pink
blk w/yellow stripe ==========blk w/yellow stripe

I tried connecting all the same colors and was left w/the whites.
The top bulb on the (L) tail lt stayed on the dirctional,stop and ect doesn't work

YOU have a mess. Black is suppose to be - or ground. It looks as if someone is using white as a ground also(do the blacks and whites connect to the body tub)? That is what the picture seems to show.

there was all so a plug for the hard top that was wired in and the solid white coming from that is grounded.. so disreguard white wires. So what else could it be?????

This all started when I took out speakers that were spliced and a high mount break lt that the spare tire goes on.

Looks like you have wiring that aren't factory by the colorers. If you have a light on all the time you probably have the wiper park wire crossed. I'll send you a private message.

from Chilton's wiring diagrams for an 88

solid blue - power to parking/marker lights
brown/green - backup lights
pink - cargo light in hardtop
yellow/black - left rear stop/turn
dark green/brown - right rear stop/turn
black/white - from door jamb switch

did it have a hardtop or extra speakers/sub in the back?
