do a search for DOCVETTE posts on this bulletin board. I don't know if you know who he was, but he passed away about 3 weeks ago.He was the electrical GURU on this site. If it involved voltage and wires he was da man. Well anyway they have taken many of his posts and wiring diagrams and placed them in a archive/memorial so to speak,here on the web site. You will probably find what you are looking for there. DANG IT, MISS YA DOC!!!!Good luck Brian

Sounds like it's time for a new harness. I don't remember if the 83's had an early computer or not? If not, you can probably use a generic wiring harness. But it just may be possible that you can order a new original one through a GM dealer or a place like GM Parts direct?

That harness is almost 25 years old now and sounds like it's in pretty bad condition. Yeah you could repair it with help, but you'd still have a 25 year old harness that has who knows what gremlins will pop up and when.
