The factory service manual has the wiring diagrams, connector pinouts, ground locations, all that stuff.

AlldataDIY also has the factory diagrams, etc., online. It's subscription based.

Red face also Haynes

Haynes books have the diagrams also but not easy to understand for the most part wiring is PITA to get a good grip on from the diagrams; and the color codes are confusing not to mention the craziness under the dash.

If a Goof ball installed your radio you are F-ed up those guys make a mess of your wiring for the most part they are young kids doing the installs they splice into the wrong wires all the time.

why order. We have then online for free >

The mirror should just be a power and ground, maybe a third wire to tell it when the lights are on?

Plenty of overhead console tutorials on here.

i havnt been able to find any of them online and it would be nice to have the books also to just keep them in the garage instead of messing with the computer out there and idk i liek the hard copy but i guess ill pay for it and i thought the same of the mirror but theres 6 or 7 wires that come out of it any help you be nice thou to find them online

heres the first console i ordered i got it for the computer cause it was only 18 bucks shipped and the console im using dont have the computer installed so ill mix and match the two and get what i want there

It's a copyright issue to have the books out on the internet. But a lucky few of us here on DF happen to have them. I keep both mine and dad's truck FSM's on our garage computer, and BK'd on my server and laptop.
