    This one is a hard to answere not knowing your wiring ability.
    These are only suggestions:
    1) Gliders link is excellent.
    2) Have you tried a local wrecker for a similar wiring harness?
    3) There are wiring harness available on the web.
    4) If you still have the old harness or parts of it you can make a duplicate of it.

    Great suggestions by dangerdan.

    Here's something else that may help you out rather than trying to make a harness yourself. The problem with doing that is getting the correct wire sizes for all the circuits. Here's a site (one of many) that has pre made harnesses. I would compare these against the OEM harness from the dealer. The dealer unit if available would have the correct fittings and other things that the after market may not have.

    That said I wouldn't even try it without guidance from a Very Knowagable person. In Person!!
    Even with a full wiring diagram and a step by step from the Internet, you must UNDERSTAND it before you can do it right!!
    You'll be Money and time ahead if you by a plug & ride harness! :53:

    It says:
    Quick links tips forums

    This is a quick link to the self help forums that is easier to navigate because it is a list rather than having to search the forum itself. Much easier to use and we can all thank Speed for this update.:worthy
