Center console

This is for "general" electrical discussions. Audio, security, remote start, and power accessories should go here, since they don't seem to fit anywhere else. Not for diesel-specific (like glow systems), or gasoline-specific (like ignition systems) topics.

Center console

Postby minidiesel » Fri Nov 09, 2018 8:44 pm

I finally found a factory center console, with arm rest.
Now comes the wiring part. It's from an 86 gas going into 86 diesel. 6 wires, black,yellow(w/blue tracer),green(w/red),yellow,red(w/green),and green(w/white). Anybody no the destinations? Do i need different sending units?

I found the wiring diagrams. Gas and diesel are the same color code wire. Could i be so lucky as to have that connector(plug in 6 wire) already in my wiring harness?

Does your truck already have the oil pressure gauge sensor (rather large & round) or only the pressure switch for the dummy light?

I feel like i hit the lotto, finding the console w/armrest, and i just found the plug in under the dash in my harness. Hooray . I'm not sure where is the gauge sensor located if it there.

Trucks with the console & gauge usualky have a T with the dash light sensor and the sensor for the gauge. Right side of engine. Low.

I bought one new from Jerry Lemond many years ago. Look up the sender for a gasser truck and see if advance or rockauto carries one.

Awesome ,thanks puttputtinpup, I'll check those rockauto part numbers at local napa and see if i can have an oil pressure gauge reading this weekend. I much prefer a number to an idiot light.

Console is in and working( still waiting on delivery of my oil pressure sender). Had to splice, soldering wires to extend 3" to reach plug in. Installed green led backlights. Got a price off $100.oo to make a new shift boot( not the rubber sealing one on the floorboard) the leather one up top, that sounded high. Cut the old one apart and stitched a new one myself for $6.oo (took 1 1/2 hour ). The $100.oo probably wasn't out of line.

That looks GREAT. Did you use leather, or vinyl?

Thanks, I used a marine rated vinyl, hoping it would take the heat and last a good while.
