Default Color Code for Ignition Switch - 07-01-2003 , 09:23 PM






I am looking for the color code for a 1979 chev. Impala 305cu.

The switch has never worked correctly. You can use any key to start it
and just for the hell of it I am going to put in a floor switch like the
old jeep I use to use, but would like the color code just to make it
easier to do.

Thanks
ChrisW

Don't have an Impala manual. How about a Monte, Camaro, and Buick of the same years?

(All the reds are common)
Off = all connections open
Accessory = red + brown connected
Run = pink + red + brown + orange connected
Start = dark green and tan/white grounded (brake & temp dash lights)
pink + red + purple(auto) or yellow(manual) connected

Now, go away. This is FORD group, gosh darnit!
Don't make me come over there and smack you!
