You will need to find a good wiring diagram, probably in a factory repair manual. If there is a plug you may be able to buy a new pigtail from Toyota.


this may help...

we found a wire diagram -but the wires on the 1995 have different colors than the diagram shows- and the plug we got is total different colors- so not sure which way to hook them up -


Clearly you will need a correct wiring diagram. I would try your Toyota dealer. If there were wiring loom changes your VIN should get you the right parts.

Tried that - They are a JOKE-no help at all!!!!!


I am guessing that some of the colors are the same or similar. You may have to try different combinations until it runs.

will it do damage to hook it up wrong thou- do not want to cause more problems
