engine wiring diagrams for a 96 and 98 dodge ram 1500

Customer Question

I have a 96 dodge that needed a new engine harness and I could only find a 98 one, and noticed the plugs that go inot the computer area are different. Can I make an adapter using a plug from both and match up the wires to each proper location and it work?

This is a tricky task. I am starting with info below. it shows the 3 connectors, their colors and the numbers for each terminal. the chart after that shows each wire color and wher from. ther are no adapters offered for this. You can try to slowly splice one at a time or maybe locate one at salvage yard. LMK thanks

are these on the computer side or body harness side. I am looking to take the harness I have off a 98 and make an adapter using the plug off the 96 harness so it will plug in to the body control harness which has 3 plugs on the upper left side of firewall. The one off the 98 only has one plug.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
therefore I need the diagrams and wire/color functions for both 96 and 98 to match them up properly
Expert:  Randall C replied 7 years ago.

Below is the plug view for 1998 and pinout. I am unsure as both use 3 plugs. This is the best I have to offer. It would be an enormous task to send all the diagrams for both years as there are many,many diagrams. lmk thanks





Customer: replied 7 years ago.
ok let me see what i can do with the above diagrahm.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
i need the side bythe fuse box, not the computer.
Expert:  Randall C replied 7 years ago.
So you need the wiring diagrams for the wires going into the underhood fuse box
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
i got some diagrams from dodge today, so now all i need is this

for the 1998 1500 5.9L 4x4 one and I can match all up from there.
Expert:  Randall C replied 7 years ago.
I sent the one fior the 96 and then the one for 98 . They are very similar. It was the last diagram I sent was the 98
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
ok, sorry I thought both were same.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
are you certain as both wire color/fnuction listings are identical, and I know they are not 100% identical from the sheet I got from dodge's service manual.
Expert:  Randall C replied 7 years ago.
I have not looked ar each and every one but I did oull the connector views form both different years
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Relist: not understanding question.

I need this diagrahm for 1998 and 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 (needs to show ckt/color and function for both) otherwise I cannot match up wires.
