Default Mystery Wiring

1986.5 Nissan D21 Hardbody
VG30i / 5SPD / 4X4

Hello Forum Guru's.

In my ongoing quest to remedy what was wronged by the previous owner (who, I might add, should not be allowed to reproduce) I discovered some mystery wiring today.

One of these is definitely the Oil Pressure Sending Unit connector, but I cannot find where these wires mate with the harness. Does anyone know which part of the harness the Oil Pressure sending unit is on? FSM isn't telling me much.

Furthermore, I also see an unknown single blade wiring connector that looks like its coming from the starter, but I cannot find a mating connector for it. Does anyone know what this is, or where it connects? It is black wire w/ a pink stripe.


Hopefully these images upload...

the v6 sending unit wires feed to the lower part of the wire harness on the passenger side. i can not remember (without looking at mine) if it goes to the front of the harness towards the power steering area or towards the rear.


if you do not have an answer by morning, i will check mine. i need to check the oil anyways.

When I had my starter replaced the mechanic told me what those wires do... some PO cut the ends off and had just twisted the wires together with those home depot twist splice things. He undid that and soldered the wires together with heatshrink while he was in there swapping the starter, but I can't remember what he said those were for... I didn't drive the truck today but if Caddy doesn't get back to you first I'll try to check mine when I get home and see where they go.

Its always fun when you find those twist splice things on electrical connection that are subject to weather. They are for indoor use only! How stupid do you have to be!

This is what the previous jackoff did to the main power cable to the starter.
(Hopefully, it uploads)
