My son had a stereo installed at a major electronics store. To make a long story short, the installer cut some wires in the main harness behind the radio, causing the 4wd switch to not function, now it will not start. The wire harness is not available any longer. I need to find out how to disassemble the dash in order to repair the wiring. Please help.

I cant seem to find any instructions on how to remove the front bezel of the dash. If I remmeber correctly there are screws on the face of it, and on the underside below the heater controls. Might be a few above the gauge cluster as well. This should free up the bezel for removal. From there just remove what you have to for access. Take a digital pic as you go if there are worrines about reassembly

Thanks for the reply. I did manage to get the dash removed. The stereo installer cut 8 wires and nicked 5 others. All have been repaired by splicing, soldered, and shrink wrapped. However, the truck will crank over but still not start. Just a coincidence? Can't hear the fuel pump when the ignition is turned on. Any other ideas?

When did it not start? Was it driven home from the stereo shop? Look on the firewall for fuses, there may be one for the fuel pump

The stereo was installed last fall, but the truck was in storage until a couple of weeks ago. The truck has been working fine until the recent snowstorm revealed the 4wd didn't work. The starting issue just happened a couple of days ago. The fuses that I can find are good and the fuel pump relay was swapped with a known working unit and still a "cranks but no start" condition.

Where is the fuel pump test connector (gray wire) and what does it look like?
