    • Open the hood and here is where it all starts. 8E92F9A1-27C3-44A0-BC77-B7D65940C863.MOV
    • The harness was completely chopped so it was completely removed and replaced ) it was all random red wire) I have only 2 wires running to my starter. The purple solenoid wire and the power red wire. I’m no mechanic or wiring specialist. This is where I am in my reading of the book today. Jacked up the car and checked only 2 wires running to it from what I can see. I know I read there should be wires on the I and R but that is as far as k have gotten with it today …. I find it quite strange that the radio and the blower motor work with no key and the wiper switch does not ( I know none of them should) I also verified that I hooked up the correct wire to the radio ( as there are 2 to choose from) one constant one key on 
    • She will be a Project rebuild. Keeping the 350, but will do a high performance drive train starting with the engine rebuild from the block up through the carb, then to the transmission and differential.  Replace drum to front disc brakes, new interior, new paint and chrome.  Body is in great shape.
    • Hi Cathy, I am also potentially going to go the so-called Painless route so am interested to hear of your troubles. In addition to what the guys said, just about all GM ignition switches shared a common configuration of coloured wires. It's the pink & yellow ones that determine how your car starts & runs. I THINK yellow is the 'start' wire and pink is for when it's running, or vice versa. The ultimate test is with the switch off, you should have zero power going anywhere except for clock, courtesy lights, brake lights & headlights. ACC position should give you radio & cigar lighter and maybe wipers & blower. Get a factory wiring diagram (or look it up online) and try to replicate that. The Painless supplied ignition switch plug should simply plug in and you're good to go but if the car has ever been played around with prior to your ownership, you don't know what's happened under the dash. Is the wire to the R (or sometimes 'I') terminal on the starter solenoid in the right place?
