I need to know what two wires I tap into to finish the installation of an aftermarket complete kit that I purchased. Unfortunatly the kit does not tell you the color of the wires coming off the ignition keyswitch to use. The kit was easy to install but without knowing what color of wires to tap into its useless. Any help would be appreciated.
Do you
have the same problem?

Sorry about not giving you all the info you needed CJ MRDEVAC-I did not realize that there were so many diagrams for the same model. Basically I am jus looking for the color code of the wires at the ignition swith so that I can tap into the two I need. Thanks anyway for the help and again my apologies. By the way your title suggests you might be a vet, if you are welcome home and thank you for your service.
