Headlight switch primes the fuel pump? no Key? Other Questions
Okay, So trying to get my car back up and going, Someone had taken out the old dash/body harness and cut it up, so I found another harness from a car I had and removed the entire harness from it moved it over into my car and have some odd issues going on.
1987 Mustang LX 5.0L sedan
Wiring for complete car came from a 1989 LX 5.0 Hatchback
Body harness issues,
Key on fuel pump primes, Engine starts as it should
1) Key off, key out of switch, Press the headlight switch and the fuel pump relay comes on and primes the pump, on 3 seconds and off, just like I switched the ignition with the key.
No head lights, only half of the cluster works which is the speedo side.
2) key off, key out of switch, (Unplug the cluster and the problem goes away)
I want to solve the headlight priming the fuel pump first.
I don't think this would be an issue with the cluster, but it could be, but I do believe some circuit is connecting when I put the cluster in, to power up the relays for the eec and the fuel pump, From what I have read these are powered up by a ground, so what could be happening to cause this or what wires could I check first?
on a second note....the picture I am attaching, where do these two plugs go? one goes out through the fire wall on the drivers side and towards the headlight harness and the other goes down to the kick panel into a square plug.
