You have 2 different accessory circuits, one gets power while the engine is cranking, and in the run position, but not the acc (ignition related stuff). the other (radio, heater, and ??) gets power with the key in the run, and acc position, but not while the engine is cranking (saves the radio from voltage spikes while the alt starts to power up, and gives a tad more power to the starter).Daisy Dodge said:Hello there!
I just got my new universal EZ Wiring harness in the mail, and I am having trouble getting everything to work. The kit comes with a new fuze box, and certain components are hooked up differently from the stock system.
I've hooked up my original wires at the ignition switch to the new wiring as follows:
Ignition switch power (goes to solenoid) >>> new RED wire to my old red wire. Gets 12 volts.
Starter (goes to starter relay) >>> new PURPLE wire to my old pink wire. Gets 12 volts when cranking.
ACC power >> BROWN and ORANGE to my old blue and black wires. Get 12 volts with the key on.
Coil power (goes to ballast resistor, then coil positive) >> new PINK wire to my old orange wire. NO POWER.
I don't understand why the my old orange wire isn't getting any power? Any help would be appreciated. This is my first time rewiring!

Hope that helps you understand, I do not have a wiring diagram here to help better.
