    Did you find for wiring diagrams? They have most cars and it's free if you register.

    What happened to this harness? Did it rip out of the firewall or ....? Why can't you stretch out the survivor and see where they might hook back up?

    no the problem is,thier are about a handful of wire that are the same color,really no way of telling which wire goes where,i have all the other wires soldered and shrink taped,but now im stuck because i have no idea what to do with them,dont want to burn out any components,,i might have to unravel the entire harness

    Any chance that two of them are actually black and green? If so take a test light and connect it to a good ground. If you have all of your fuses in place and the low beam headlights in their sockets, check to see if you have power available two of on those wires on the grill side of the harness. If so then either disconnect the low beam headlights, or their fuses (both RH and LH) and see if the power is lost to those wires when you do. If so then they are the ground control wires for the low beam lamps to the front electronic control module in the left hand side of the dash. Once those are identified, then you can connect your test light to power and repeat the check by turning the headlights on/off. The dash side of the harness should provide you a ground connection and turn your test light on.

    Even if the colors aren't correct and these are not headlight circuits, if you use a volt meter and test as described and simply keep trying different plausible systems identifying the circuits works out to just be a matter of persistence and being patient.
