OBC stalk installation help

Recommended Posts

I was piddling around with the connectors on the stalk, and undid the wiring on one connector, thinking it was the wiring leading to the cruise control, which I do not need. In fact, it was the wiring that lead to the OBC stalk, which I do need.

I just want to check the color of the wires that lead into the OBC stalk connector. I've included a picture of what it looks like, the wire colors going from left to right in the picture (left->right = 1->6)

white/black (1)

white (2)

green (3)

blue (4)

gray (5)

Is this correct? I think I wired it correctly, but I can't be sure and I don't want to mess this up before I take the steering wheel apart. In the future, I'll make sure to WRITE DOWN the order of stuff before I take it apart (yes, yes, I'm an idiot)

Any help would be appreciated.

Curisoity killed the cat. The wires are in the correct slots. Slot #6 is not used.

I assume you do not have cruise control. If you are smart enough to figure out how to remove the connector cover and the pins, then you might want to try to retrofit the cruise control.

Otherwise, just cut off the stalk.

Tool Pants, how hard is it to retrofit Cruise Control, anyway?  I've heard its complicated...

I have never done it. My 1997 has cruise control. Instructions for an e-gas car are here on this board, and at least 2 e-gas owners have done the cruise control retrofit.

This pic is for Alee. Cover is off.
