I am installing a PAB into my EF Series II and was wondering where I plug it in, is it on the dash loom or the Body loom?

The plug and wires come off the body loom. Its usually a black 2 pin plug with the wires covered in bight yellow conduit.

If its not there, you will have to run 2 wires from the airbag ECU.

Hanging out of the wiring loom next to the airbag ECU will be a small rectangle box, with a -from memory- pink/black and brown/something wire running to it. This is the 2 ohm resistor used to fool the ECU.

Get yourself a PAB plug (pocketable from any self serve wrecking yard), cut the resistor off the body loom and extend the wires long enough to where the PAB sits and solder the wires from the plug in.

When you solder them, just make 100% sure you have the right colours on the right wires. Otherwise when you plug it in, the PAB may go off. :?

If the dash is still in, have a look through the upper left holes of the glovebox compartment - looking towards the LH ventilation ducting. If the loom is there, you should see it complete with the blanking resistor.

Otherwise, as mentioned, the loom goes over the heaterbox, and is covered in corrugated yellow conduit.

Thanks all I found it, it was as ARM79 said the yellow conduit, I was expecting a resistive terminator on it so I had dismissed it early on, but it does plug into the dash and from there it goes to the terminator. All good now 8-)
