Re: OVERHEAD CONSOLE Owners Please Post HERE!!!!!!!

What I have is a short ohc with a long ohc module. It only has temp and compass so I'm hoping it on't be too bad. I'm not sure why I would need the VSS unless it's for the compass.

Re: OVERHEAD CONSOLE Owners Please Post HERE!!!!!!!

I think you need the VSS for the temp. Everything the compass needs is contained in the bracket that you attach the OHC to, but I believe it uses the VSS to adjust the temp depending on the speed. Would just have to find the wiring diagram thru deathphoenix's sig.

Re: OVERHEAD CONSOLE Owners Please Post HERE!!!!!!!

I just double checked, since I thought, but wasn't sure, and yeah, you need the VSS, and its the green with white stripe, and yeah the best place to get it is the radio harness. I tried a couple of other places, and it didn't work out well.

Re: OVERHEAD CONSOLE Owners Please Post HERE!!!!!!!

Now, one thing that I remembered, there are at least two green wires with white stripes. One is the VSS and the other is one of the speaker wires, at least thats what it is on my 98, so might want to find a pin out of the radio, or in my case, it was the one that didn't have anything on the radio side of the adapter harness, since they don't have the automatic adjustment for speed like a stock radio does.

Re: OVERHEAD CONSOLE Owners Please Post HERE!!!!!!!

update: I figured out what to do with my headliner since I installed the rag top. Also, to answer your question, IIRC the VSS can be found at your OBDII port and is the SOLID light green wire... or that may be the data signal. Not 100% sure.

Re: OVERHEAD CONSOLE Owners Please Post HERE!!!!!!!

I picked up a short console out of a 97 Blazer with a sunroof. It doesn't have homelink, just the rocker for the sunroof. It also has the external compass sensor. The lights are the ones where you push the lens to turn on and off.
It looked like someone had tried to remove the console and gave up. The wires were cut at the plug in the dash, and the jackwagon ripped the three wires out of the plug for the map lights. The harness has black, white and orange wires, and the plug on the console has black white and grey.

I can find a dozen pinouts for the LED readout, but there are no postings for the lights.
Can someone tell me how the colors line up between the harness and the plug for the lights? Also, any idea which wire is hot and which is switched? Can I just tap into the wiring for my rear view mirror? (It's not an auto-dim, it just has the two little map lights)

Thankx!

Also, there were no bulbs in the map lights. Can someone tell me what bulb size these take? I'm going to go for LED's but I need a starting point as to what type bulb.

Go back a page and look at this posting
http://www.s10forum.com/forum/f62/ov...ml#post6719230

Some OHC came with controls for the rear A/C instead of an information display. Pull the controls, put in a plate, and there should be room for a couple gauges. There is room in the pillar for drain lines the size of your finger for sunroofs, there should be plenty of room for any lines you need for gauges.

Re: OVERHEAD CONSOLE Owners Please Post HERE!!!!!!!

Fenton- do you have a rearview mirror with lights? That is where I got my black(ground), orange(power), and white, since the lights in the mirror are hooked up like courtesy lights as well. The grey wire, I went down to the radio harness.

Mine have always been bright, you might need a new module badmofo. Too bad, because I just tossed like 5-6 mode computers since I no longer wanted to store them. All of them were good too.

Yes, I have the mirror with the lights. Since the harness uses black white and orange, I can just go with the same colors tapping the feed to the mirror, yes? (Thanks)

My main question is how to put those 3 wires back into the male plug for the OHC since the female connector on the console itself uses black, white and grey.

im guessing thats whats wrong with it, it works on and off and is pretty dim, and im pretty sure my wiring is good. ill probably end up putting some kind of gauges or volt meters in there so im not really worried about it.

I was at the salvage yard this past weekend, and pulled a console down that looked like mine. the three wires from the harness, black, white and orange, connect to the three wires on the console (lighting circuit) black, white, and grey. Not sure why they didn't just go with Orange on the console, but .. whatever..
Looks like next week I'll have time to install the console, as well as a gauge cluster with Tach.

mine just worked bright all the time at first but if i remember correctly to get it to dim when you turn the headlights on there are two wires that have to be joined together then ran to the dimmer wire wheich i think is gray..if you need help i can pull the trim that runs down the windshield to see which ones i put together..

Re: OVERHEAD CONSOLE Owners Please Post HERE!!!!!!!

OK guys I'm going to need some help here. Please bare with me as I am a total noob at electrical and wiring.
I have a 1991 first Gen Jimmy, I just picked up an Overhead console from another first gen but it did not come with a wiring harness. So I went to the junkyard ands picked up a harness from a 2nd gen blazer (99?) All the way from the overhead console to the firewall. I also picked up the digital meter that's suppose to say the temperature and compass. So what I need is help on how to connect everything to make sure it'll all work. I'm guessing I'm gonna need A temp sensor and compass sensor? where are they located in the second Gen and what do they look like?

I also picked up the digital meter that's suppose to say the temperature and compass. So what I need is help on how to connect everything to make sure it'll all work. I'm guessing I'm gonna need A temp sensor and compass sensor? where are they located in the second Gen and what do they look like?
Is your console a mode or on/off console? All you need is the temp sensor, compass is built in. If its a mode console it won't work in your truck.

You need to know the year of console for the temp sensor because 98+ are different, the temp will be about 30 degrees off.

Also there should be wiring diagrams at the first of this thread to tell you where the wires go.

Thanks. It is the on/off console. I can always go back to the junkyard and pull the sensor off the same blazer I got it from. Just need to know where the temp sensor is located

Re: OVERHEAD CONSOLE Owners Please Post HERE!!!!!!!

if it is the 1 with the mode function, you need the ECU out of a blazer. The console works off of information from that to get gas mileage, range, etc. If all it has is the temperature and compass, all you need to do is find a switched power and ground and then wire into the vehicle speed sensor. The wire for the temperature sensor will be stand alone.

It depends on your drivetrain. It is probably in the transmission.
