Painless Wireharness

Post by thepossumface on Thu Aug 22, 2013 10:21 pm

Has anyone used a painless or EZ wireharness?
I would like to remove my old setup with a newer one,
and clean up a ton of my wires that I have scattered around the car,
I have a 70 or 80 camaro dash with autometer gauges straight to the motor and trans.
Any advice?

I used a m & h electric fabricators harness (562) 926-9552. I purchased it from opg, but you can go directly through them. They told me they could make changes to the harness for custom applications, sounds like what you need. You will need to figure out what year dash you have as the '70-78 dash is different that the '79-81.

If you have electrical gremlins or want to upgrade the original barrel-fuses to the newer ATO style, then it's a great idea, but it's a fair amount of work and the full harnesses aren't cheap.  If all you need to do is hook up aftermarket gauges, then you can do it simpler and cheaper by getting just the Painless gauge harness.  Get out your wiring diagram for the car, cut off the head of the printed circuit connector in your existing dash, and hook up the appropriate wires harness-to-harness. I wouldn't use any of the Camaro wiring unless absolutely necessary.

Some gauges will already be calibrated to accept the factory sender (such as fuel level) so all you have to do is connect the wire from the dash harness to the same wire from the gauge harness.  Others, however, may require their own sender to be used (such as speedo), in which case you may have to run a few wires and install a few senders, but it's less work and expense overall than redoing the entire electrical system.

Yeah my friend has 2 camaro a 71 and a 89 iroc im still trying to decide which one i would like to get, the AC/Heat is gonna be taken out of it along with all the stuff under the dash. I figure wiring up a switch for my wippers and lights cant be to hard I can keep both switches if i got with the 71 dash style

If you haven't purchased the fuel gauge yet, get one for 0-90 ohms -- that's the GM calibrated one. If you have a different one already, you'll need a different sender in the tank.

I'll see if I can dig up my diagrams and get them scanned in, but they'll all be for 73. Shouldn't be too far off, though.

but i would like the blinkers,wippers, inside and outside lights to all be ran to the new harness plus i think it will take away all of my extra wires on there from the AC stuff to the other Misc things i wont need
