There's no manufactured harness out there that would have worked on this car...not even close.

    Here's a list of the power items/accessories I have installed.

    Twin Derale fans with Dakota Digital PAC-2750 fan controller
    Autoloc electric hood release solenoid (custom mount)
    Electric power brakes
    Power windows with one-touch controllers
    Power vent windows
    Holley C950 ECM with Wideband O2
    Power antenna
    Dakota Digital VHX gauges and clock
    Dakota Digital PAC-3500 door lock controller with Electric-Life door locks
    Dakota Digital PAC-1300 automatic headlight/dome/RAP controller
    12-way 2000 Cadillac Eldorado power seats
    Raingear wipers with delay switch
    Kenwood DDX-471HD 2-DIN touchscreen stereo
    Polk Audio speakers
    Rockford Fosgate amp
    Dakota Digital cruise control
    Boyo backup camera
    Danchuk 56 backup light kit
    DMH 3 1/2" electric cutouts with one-touch controller
    Walbro 255LPH fuel pump
    Centex Auto Dimming mirror with temp and compass
    Vintage Air Gen IV Sure Fit A/C
    Panther keyless entry/Alarm system
    Hella dual note horns
    Multiple LED courtesy lights, console box light
    Console fan (cooling for amp and ECM)

    Also plan to add all LED exterior lights and headlights. I have a whole binder full of schematics with the wire sizes and colors and a drawing of the fuse panel with all the fuses marked. Relay sockets are labeled and also shown on the schematics. Hope I don't need them.
    I know you did. Just poking at you

    It looks good but oh my thats some wire. I can just see the service guys face at the repair shop when you tell him that you have a wiring issue in your console and can he take a look.

    Do yourself a favor sometime and take a listen to a pair of ADS 320i speakers from around 1985-86. Yep old tech but oh so sweet. You might find some old technology for that Nomad.

    Nobody has touched this car but my painter and nobody will touch it except me and my interior guy. If there's any "service" needed I'll do it. How many new cars have wiring issues once they're built? Once I verify everything works as designed, I don't expect anything to change.

This was a huge job and I tried to stay on it so I didn't forget where I was. I ended up making 4 of my rear fuses IGN power instead of constant so I had more spare switched fuses. I hope I didn't make any mistakes.

    True, but there are countless problems out there with many newer cars of any brand that are so bad, that nobody can figure it out easily, even at the dealer level. Every new car ends up with a shitload of TSB's. Although pretty old now, my 97 C5 is a perfect example of problems to come, and no replacement components even available if you figure it out. After putting up with it for 5 years, I still haven't tracked down the code that randomly gets set, and shuts down ABS, and the traction control. It always comes down to OHM's law though.
    One of the best things on the C5 Corvette, that every car should have, is that with a couple secret buttons you can scroll through every code from all of the computers on the car right on the driver's display. That saves a lot of trips to the dealer though.
    Your wiring does look great though cnut.

    Cnut may have a good handle on what is what today, but how about 10 or 15 years from now or the next guy.

    Cnut will be changing things in the future as he is an engineer and likes new innovations. As time transpires the technology will become obsolete and changes to upgrade become necessary just because.

    IMHO these cars are to continually keep futzing with forever to keep us entertained.
