About This File

Ever try tracing a wire on the black and white diagram and lose your place causing you to start over again? Or maybe colors make the miserable job of tracing an electrical fault more fun?

If you hate colors or usefulness, this is not for you. Some files are very large and may require significant amounts of RAM/computing power to view. IDK how much power is not enough, all my rigs are pretty new.

Zip file contains 3 images:

VFR Wiring Layers hires.png - very high resolution, colorized version of the wiring diagram from the 5th gen service manual. The filename lies, there are no layers in this file.

VFR Wiring Layers hires.xcf - very high resolution, colorized.... Same as above, except has the wiring in "layers" so that you can hide parts of colorized wiring overlay that you are not interested in. Can open with GIMP (google it, the software is free for Linux or Windows, but may be difficult for casual users), IDK if Paint.net can handle layers either.

VFR Wiring Layers hires.psd - same as above, photoshop format.

Download the newest version if you want a print-ready file. The printable file doesn't have the layer functionality of the other files, but is tweaked and sized for 11x17 reproduction. If you don't intend to have the file printed, the 1.5 version has all the same functionality of the 1.51 version.

What's New in Version 1.51   See changelog


  • Version 1.5
  • Fixes:
  • 1. Wire to Intake Duct Control Solenoid (Flapper) was incorrectly overlaid as yellow w/ blue stripe. This has been corrected to yellow w/ black stripe.
  • 2. Wire to Injector 2 incorrectly overlaid as pink w/ yellow stripe. This has been corrected to red w/ yellow stripe.
  • Additions:
  • 1. Colored the wires to each of the items on the dashboard. This was originally un-overlaid because they are not wires, but traces on a circuit board. When troubleshooting a dash malfunction I realized the benefit of colorizing these anyway. A new layer called "Clocks" has been added.
  • Version 1.51
  • Additions:
  • 1. Added a photoshop file that is tweaked slightly from the original and resized to exactly 11x17 for printing.

Just opened the layered psd file -- how cool! (And what a lot of work it must've been!)

Thank you on behalf of 5th gen owners everywhere.

IMPORTANT NOTE - There are 3 errors on the wire colors in the original factory diagram. The colors are correct on the colorized layer and verified by actual inspection of the wires:

1) Where the main power wires enter the fuse box - The 12v input to fuse A is listed as R/W at the fuse box end of the wire run and R closer to battery/starter. The wire is actually solid red the entire length.

2) Same location as 1) - The 12v input to fuses B and F is listed as R at the fuse box and R/W where it leaves the reg/rec and battery. The wire is actually red with a white stripe the entire length.

3) The wire that enters fuel injector 2 - listed as R/Y at the fuel injector but P/Y the everywhere else. The wire is actually R/Y to the injector.

Lastly, a warning: Improper or inept electrical maintenance may cause physical harm by electrical shock, damage to vehicle components, and/or vehicle failure while operating.

Shit I totally screwed up the 1.51 update changelog and filenames, lemme see what I can do to make this understandable again.
