More mystery wires in engine bay by firewall
#11
That's the auxiliary power feed for options such as rear window defrost, hood light, power windows etc. The wire terminates under the dash with a yellow plug that accepts up to three male bullet connectors. It traverses the engine compartment from the battery (+) post on the starter solenoid, over the shock tower, down the length of the passenger side shock tower brace and then across the firewall, over the driver side shock tower brace and to the grommet. If you lay it along that path, the clips should line up with holes in appropriate sheetmetal pieces.

You can see it by the shocktower in the image below I pulled off the 429 Megasite. Ignore the arrow.

That's the power lead for power windows and/or courtesy harness. The boxy thing on the end is a circuit breaker which attaches either to the battery side of the starter solenoid or to the isolation post where the tach-configured headlight harness' alternator lead goes.

Let me check your shorts!

Huh...Funny, I don't have power windows or rear window defrost. I'll check the under-dash side and see what's connected there if anything.

Hemikiller, I have tried to lay it in numerous configurations and none of the holes seem to line up. The holes in the passenger brace are already taken by my coil/choke/temp harness. Your instruction and picture were very helpful though, and I found a couple spots I could anchor it to. Now it runs along side my gauge harness on the brace.

Thanks for the quick responses!

The coil choke and temp harness should be running along the driver's side of the intake.

That feed was used for power windows, power seat (Cougar), rear window defroster, power top (convertible only) and the automatic seat back latches.

Mine had the 2 black plugs same as pic #3 but when I cleaned them up one was actually blue.

I'll see if I can find a clean route on the driver's side that allows the temp sensor and choke leads to connect. I have the coil mounted to one of the intake bolts forward of the carb, so the harness might just stay where it is.

I have none of the options listed for this feed, so I think its only purpose is the hood lamp, according to my diagram.
