Hello and welcome! Would you like a wiring diagram of the data link connector so you can put it back together correctly? Can I start by getting your VIN? Thank you!

Yes, wiring diagram would be nice. Vin 1B7HC16Z8XS146585

Expert:  Amedee replied 8 months ago.
Ok, no problem..
Expert:  Amedee replied 8 months ago.
Here are some wiring diagrams. You will have to look for the data link connector on each diagram as they are different. Once you find the DLC, then look close as they will show you the color of the wires and what pins they go in at the DLC connector.
Expert:  Amedee replied 8 months ago.
And here is a link you can use that tells you which pins are which at the DLC connector. http://www.obdii.com/connector.html

the first diagram help some, but it only shows 4 wires going to the data link connector, one color of which I don't have and that is the violet/brown. Date of manufacture on truck label is 10/98
Expert:  Amedee replied 8 months ago.
Can you upload a detailed pic of all of the wires?
Expert:  Amedee replied 8 months ago.
Pin 3 is violette/brownPin 5 is black/tanPin 6 is Dark GreenPin 7 is Pink/Dark bluePin 11 is white/blackPin 16 is pink
Expert:  Amedee replied 8 months ago.
The white/purple or white/violette should only be for a diesel vehicle. It goes to pin 14. Here is a wiring diagram.

OK, non diesel
Expert:  Amedee replied 8 months ago.
Then dont worry about that wire..
Expert:  Amedee replied 8 months ago.
However, if you have that wire, you can always hook it up to pin 14
