Default help!!! Wiring.

I just bought my 1997 2nd gen and I just got her all fixed up with flat black, new bambie basher and all but now I put new led taill lights in her and her wiring is so messed up I cannot figure out how to wire her 4 wires on new lights into her old 2 wire Or does someone have and actual wiring diagram of which wire is what on the factory harnes so I can tap into that? I just want to drive her and she is still after four weeks in the garage and I have to tow horses this weekend so I really need my lights to work.

Please help

You can download the factory service manual from here. Wiring diagrams are in section 8W. If you have the factory tow harness as well, you are definitely going to want to have a look at that.

Just an FYI, You will need an electronic flasher after installing the led tail lights also.

Depends on the leds, If they have resistors they will match the amp load of a standard bulb. If not the amp load will be less and that could cause issues with the flasher.

Use an electronic flasher can... the bulb load doesn’t effect the flash rate.

Default Wiring

Guys I have no idea how to wire this. The manual is not easy to follow and I have all these wires hanging down and I found power to three from the main harness under cab. I need to know which are turn (left and right) and which are running, brakes and such. I have been working on this for awhile. I hooked up the turns and they work but I have no idea where to begin to figure out why I have like 7 wires hanging there that go no where, that seems odd to me.

Anyone know how to wire this or have a diagram.

Black/yellow is power for a bunch of stuff, including the license plate lamps.
Dark Green/Red is Left stop/turn signal.
Brown/pink is Right stop/turn signal.

These are from the 96 FSM..... hopefully, the colors didn't change..... What other color wires do you have?
