Dash Igntion Switch

I have almost finished with my rewire using an EZ Wiring kit. The kit came with colum Ignition Harness plugs. My car has a Dash Ignition and I need help.
After wiring all that I could figure out to the dash switch (starter, Batt, ACC) I'm left with 2 Pink wires from the harness labled ING SWITCH and ING COIL. Both of these wires are the same size. I have 1 prong left on my dash switch that that gives 12v in the run position. The question is which wire to trminate at the prong? Or both? I have a wire for the coil in the engine bay that will be used for a MSD box. That wire goes back to the fuse panel as well as the 2 wire left over in the Colun Ing. harness

I have a new ez_wiring kit.And it only has one pink wire that goes to the dash,IGN COIL,The one I have that say's IGN SWITCH IGN Is Brown.are you sure they are both pink,They shouldn't be.
Them two wires should hook up to the prong that says IGN..Which would be hot on run. Where are you in LA ?

I,m in Lafayette, Yes the two wires are PINK, so you think I should double them up on the prong? I also have an Ignition relay that is not used in the oringinal wiring. What do you think about that?

Is this on a Chevy motor? If so..I never use a Ignition relay on any of my Chevy's,And never had a problem yet.Just make sure you have a good IGN switch.(Not a cheap one)..I would think you can hook them together.But I have never seen two the same color.

No. I'm in Lockport.55 miles North of the gulf.

Look in your ez_wiring book.Page 13. It show's the back of the IGN switch.
