I need a wiring diagram for the sequence connection in the trunk of a 1968 cougar. Some of the wires got cut and i need to know where they go. Any pictures or diagrams will help.
thanks

I've tried there....I need pictures or diagrams telling me what wires connect where. When I got the car it was all disassembled. The cam spins..but no lights.

Same dealio over here on my 67... haven't checked the motor on it, but I know it has about 4 wires cut... the signals work in a normal car fashion... does that mean they just cut those wires and it's like that? or they added something aftermarket?

blink blink blink...

well the deal with mine is...that somebody had cut the wires under the steering column and i spliced all of those back together. I turn the key over and notice that the turn signal light on the dash is on..but not flashing. The power wire to the motor (sequencer) was disconnected...so i hook it up and the motor now spins, not no flashing dash light or signals. Oh well..tonight was the first night to attempt anything, I guess I will try again tomorrow after school.
thanks

Well, I dissected my sequencer motor/switch box today. The three wires inside were removed and spliced into one.. and the power source inside was removed and put to a standard flasher unit with the other wires that were spliced together.

So anyway, the motor insides look a little like CRAP and the transmission thingy seems to go one direction for the most part. I think I'll hit the local electronics supply (not radio shack) and see if I can find another motor...

:1zhelp:

PS ~ I just added a pic of the wires on mine, and the dissected motor/sequencer unit to the Misc Info page on my site.

Can you whip up a set of leaf springs made out of scrap 2x4s??? :D

Seriously, that is some fabulous work!!! Have you seen how expensive it is to replace one of those sequencers???

Great job!!!

I've seen that the electronic is like $169....

now as for your other comment, I live about 3 blocks from home depot... I'll see what I can do about those 2x4's and some new leaf springs.

Take That McGyver!
