    *****IMPORTANT*****
    Note that the wire color layout diagrams accompanying each picture are as seen FROM the CONTROL HARNESS SIDE of the connector with the release tab (for a male side connector) or locking notch (for a female side connector) on top. That is, you are looking at the wires going into the connector, OPPOSITE the side that is pictured. Like this: How to identify ECU pin numbers.
    *******************

    Consider this part two of The 1990 Engine Control Wiring Harness; this article covers the remaining electrical connections in the 1990 2.0L engine compartment as well as the handful of connectors that run to the interior on the driver side. For reference, the main diagram below is as viewed from the front of the vehicle; the long horizontal portion is the bit that runs underneath the radiator. This is my attempt to come full circle with the 2g Engine Bay Electrical Connections article posted by snowborder714 by providing visuals of each connector and hopefully aiding in identifying these connectors.

    Each connector is given an alphanumeric identifier that follows the 1991 configuration diagram found in the electronic copy of the factory service manual: Download the 1G Service Manuals. For your convenience, these are pictured here.

    Like the engine control harness, there are notable differences between this harness and those from later model years. Generally speaking, however, this article is relevant to all 1Ga (1990 and 1991, or those with pop-up headlights) models. On the other hand, the similarities and differences between this and the 1992+ harness(es) will not be covered now but may be added in the future; if anything, this will provide a reference for you to compare with your 1992+ harness to get an idea of what certain connections / connectors / plugs are. Now, without further ado, the complete engine compartment harness:

    C-72: Engine Compartment Wiring Harness and Body Wiring Harness Combination (white connector, 14-pin)

    The wire color layout diagrams accompanying each picture list the original wire colors and individual wire locations are as seen FROM the HARNESS SIDE of the connector with the release tab (for a male side connector) or locking notch (for a female side connector) on top. They should be color coded correctly, but if there is a disagreement with the letters and the color of the letters, go by the letters. When two colors are listed together, the first is the main color and the second is the color of the stripe or tracer. The letters represent the following colors:

    B - Black
    W - White
    R - Red
    G - Green
    L - Blue
    Y - Yellow
    O - Orange
    Lg – Light Green

    PM me if you find any errors and I will make corrections as necessary. Thanks to pauleyman for supplying the harness!
    Note: There is some information that will be added in the future but this is a good base for any individuals who may need it.

    Finally, the following supporting vendors supply the individual connectors linked or partial kits for different model year DSMs:
    JNZ Tuning
    Extreme PSI
    Magnus Motorsports

    At the end of the day, they are all coming from Sheridan Engineering.

    EXTRA: Instead of creating another post, here's a list of the fuses in the Junction Block (J/B) (inside the cabin) by name and what number that corresponds to. These relate to factory wiring diagrams.

    A-52: Engine Control Wiring Harness and Engine Compartment Wiring Harness Combination (larger, four wires)

    This is one of the connections that join this harness and the engine control harness together. Specifically, it joins with this connection on the Engine Control Harness: The 1990 Engine Control Wiring Harness.

    NOTE: This is one of the connections UNDERNEATH the fuse box; there are no connections running to the fuse box itself.
