    On top of the steering column. Black / Yellow is lower left. I copied the factory and removed all the automatic harness vs. other methods people have come up with in this thread.

      Thanks, though I still don't think I quite get the whole picture of what to do. I also think the previous owners of my car messed up a lot of the wiring whenever the 5-speed swap was done. I've got a whole mess of wires taped up in my center console

        Sounds like they left the auto harness in it and just used jumpers.

        Does your car have cruise?

          Nope, no cruise or reverse lights. I have some pictures of it on this thread:

            and here are some pictures.

            blue violet to the green black.


            the other clutch switch wired in. probably the neutral switch.


            these brown wires go to ground.


            one of your clutch sensors capped off.


            black yellow to black yellow


            under the instrument cluster, just to the left of the steering column.


            by the trans, bottom right is the manual hookup

            as for that black green wire that goes up by the ecu, its to the left of it. you will see it. it connects to the blue red.

            in all reality you can more than likely hook up your clutch switches any way you like, but i remember the location of the switches put them in their spots.

            any questions, i'd be happy to answer.
            can anyone reupload or take pictures of said procedure? TIA

              Just in case photobucket goes down again, I saved the photos and rehosted them on flickr. Enjoy

                Bump for this! Just did it on my 5 speed swap and everything functions accordingly. I was having a bit of a problem at first but it was because my brake pedal and clutch switch bracket needed to be adjusted. Now I just need to figure out my hanging revs.

                After reading this and following up with my friend Derek, it took 5 mins to get the car started!!!! No Cutting, just plug and play. Just like the original post- your are going to disconnect the added auto harness- I left the 2 ground wire connected.. figured they werent gonna do anything.

                *** USE THE OPs PICS for REFERENCE to find the harness and location***

                Description:

                The Auto Harness has 5 wires on it- 2 Brown, 1 Black with yellow stripe-connected to another black wire with yellow stripe via connector, 1 black( connected to ignition switch, 1 green with black stripe( this one may vary- older models might have 2)-connected to blue wire with brown stripe.

                1st UNDO the AUTO HARNESS:

                1) Unplug Blue wire with brown stripe connected to Green wire with black stripe.

                2) UNplug black wire with YELLOW stripe connected to black wire with YELLOW stripe

                3) Unplug black wire from ignition switch.

                Now time time to make it all WORK:

                1) Plug in black wire with YELLOW stripe into ignition switch where u pulled the black wire.

                2) Unplug the harness that is plugged into the reverse plug-( This is located by the hole where the shifter comes thru)- then plug in your reverse plug from the trans into the plug that you just disconnected,.

                3) Plug in the White Plug and is deleted to itself to the clutch switch on the pedal ( The White plug is the one that is deleted to its self with blue wire with red stripe)

                YOU are now DONE!! Start your car!!

                Everything works on my 91 vert, back up lights and cruise control good to go!!

                        Sooo I've dug through under the dash for a while now and can't find the "Blue/Yellow" to "Green/Black" connection.

                        That doesn't handle cruise control does it?

                        Is it possible Euro models may be different or have it somewhere else? I can't seem to find a connector with wires that may be the euro equivalent either.

                          Hi guys,

                          I've bought an E30 which had the auto swapped.
                          Works OK, but I have trans light on and also check engine flashes. Will this re-wiring help me with that too or do I need to look elsewhere ? And if so, where ?

                          Thanks in advance.

                            Trans light? E30's don't have a transmission computer. Do you have the rare version with the "sport mode" selector?

                              Yes, I do. Or the car did.

                              There is some confusion about this transmission computer, someone even showed me the part itself. Some others say it does not exist.... I'm really into doubts here.
                              I have to say I'm located in Europe, car was a German version, if that matters for some reason.

                                For the sport version, yeah there's a computer. But not for the majority of the autos.

                                I'd just unplug the computer and/or remove the bulb. It isn't doing anything.
