Actually the connector for the crank sensor was revised. All 95-96 year models used a different style connector then the 97-99 model years.

When you buy a new OEM crank sensor it comes with the new REVISED pigtail connector for years 97-99.

So if you DID NOT notify the dealer of your year model and did not get the pigtail as well. You simply need to order the new pigtail.

if you don't have a dealer nearby, go to your local NAPA store: ECH EC235
