i bought a 79 elco, and there was a lot to do. I'm close to completing it, but there is a yellow wire underdash in harness that is smoked, connecting to fuse panel at the "acc" labeling? not sure what it is, but would rather fix it, then have to tear dash up again. I noticed it runs in the harness that goes over and across the instrument cluster, but it seems to keep going and im not sure where to look, because the cigarrette lighter wires have been spliced in somewhere else, but nothing else looks burnt. I have checked wiring diagrams, but no ideas there either...any help I can get is greatly appreciated.

dvd system...but i ran new wires for power and switched. So...sounds like I have a "no harm done" situation?...Im just trying to make absolutely sure...under the dash in not my favorite place..lol. I knoow there was no radio, the blower fan had some monkey work with a toggle switch..lol....it was a mess. But, I replaced the interior fan speed switch, blower motor, the relays (burnt) next to the blover motor, and bypassed the connector on the firewall (red wire anyway, b/c the connector was burnt), so I hope im in good shape. Gimme a thumbs up if you think we're good...:dontknow:

Yes, I disconnected it from the panel. It was old and bare, the sheathing mostly burnt off of it. I have been able to trace it as far as the right corner of the instrument panel, but I have the dash in and would really not wish to remove it again....this would be the second time since I really had the car mostly complete, then blew a 5 inch hole in the block, so I'm now finishing up a 5.3L vortec (carbed)/ 'vette 700r4 install and just sorta being a perfectionist looking at the "loose ends"
