On a 96 there is no wire for this. Timing is controlled exclusively by the PCM. The distributor is installed with #1 cylinder at TDC and the rotor pointing to the tab on the distributor base marked with an "8". Fine adjustment (if needed) must be done using a scan tool. If the distributor is installed incorrectly the vehicle will set a DTC of P1345
