Wiring help please!

Hi all I'm looking for a pin out fir the two big (black, white) electrical plugs in the rear trunk. One goes to dme unit, other to car.

Thanks. Matt

Pretty sure my Bentley manual has these, or maybe just the TS guides. I'll look shortly.

For the record, however, I do object.

Well the engine grenaded and the guy was going scrap it, and I don't have 15k for a pos engine.

and he traded it to me for a bike! lmao I couldn't sell that bike on C-list for 1K.

Better my loved Frankenstein then parted and crushed...

And have you ever traced a line from those oem wiring diagrams?
Not easy.
So any help would be nice... Thanks!

Right on, man. It may not be everyone's particular cup of tea, but I know a fella who has made a living out of Chevy 350 conversions for Jaguars. He doesn't get a lot of love from purists, but guys driving converted cars have nothing but mad respect for him.

Bottom line: put a motor in and drive the wheels off. Because why not!?

Spend $30 and buy the electronic version of the shop manual.

You'll need all of this anyway to complete your project.

Thanks for the link.
That's part one for sure.
I have the online wiring diagrams, but they wrap page to page and I need an education in reading them. Lol. Ive done this to a few vanagons as well but the p wiring is slowed me down.

I was hoping someone had a pin out for the two main plugs at the dme (ecu, ECM what ever).

Again thanks. M

I posted the DME pinout on the other thread. Somehow I never noticed your thread until I searched for it. Here it is for the '98:
