Universal Harness to a Mopar column

If I get a wiring harness that has a GM column adapter, can I rig it to my Mopar column? My thinking tell me that if I just cut the Mopar harness before the connector(on the column) and cut the harness's GM connecter off; and connect the new harness connector wires to the old Mopar connector wires...it should work...right? Does that all even make sense to anyone besides me? And before someone replies with the "get the correct harness for the car" or the "get a harness with a Mopar connector" reply...its been thought of and its not even being considered as an option.

Not being all that familiar with Mopar wiring I would suspect it can work. I would however obtain a Mopar wiring diagram of the column connector and turn signal switch and compare it to the GM column connector and turn signal switch wiring. For starters the color codes are going to be different.

Yeah, the colors being different was a given. But that's sounds like a plan to me too. I don't see(in my own little world) why it wouldn't work. But nothing is guaranteed.

Should be able to make that work..sometimes even GM color codes do not match up..with the wiring diagram in hand splice a Gm connector onto the mopar column and then your wiring harness will plug to that..only one set of splices that way..

Most all the wiring kits I have seen have digraims for GM to MOPAR OR FORD or most what ever as others have said the wire colors will be not be the same, as for splicing DON'T if at all possible just get some GM ends and make up your own plug. Note GM ends are not the standard ones but can be had from KWIK-WIRE,and likely from others as well. good luck.

Duley noted. I'll probably be doing it here in the next week or so. I'll let you all know how it goes.
