Mustang Wiring Mess

Posted on the May 29th, 2009 under mustang by John

The last week I was able to work on the mustang a little bit.  I was trying to figure out what these extra wires were that I found when I was re-wiring some of the burnt wires under the engine bay.  I noticed two wires with clips on the end and I had no idea what they were for.  They didn’t look stock, so I descided to start tracing them back.

The wires I found:

I traced them back through the firewall, then they ran down near the drivers side of the car under the carpet.  The big red Zero guage wire is the battery wire thats located in the trunk.  I also found some other smaller red wires that ran from the fuse box to the back as well.   I could not for the life of me figure out what these wires were.  I continued to trace these back under the rear seat to the trunk…

IMG_9217Once I got to the trunk I found a ton more of the wire, then found out that all of this wire was going to a box which controlled some type of high voltage lighting.  Once of the previous owners must have been a volunteer fireman.  I pulled out the box, and all of the wires, it must have weight at least 25lbs all together.

Hopefully over the this week I’ll be able to see if the changes I made fixed my issues…
