Hi

Was just wondering plan to buy a ed sedan for a project/weekend car and may drop a 5l into it or will be adding the fairmont features or both.

want to ask following incase a ed fairmont full harness or ed fairmont/nc fairlane 5l full harness can’t be found.



1. can a el fairmont/nl fairlane harness be made to fit the earlier e series dash with a few mods by checking diagrams out and soldering new plugs on to get the earlier e series cluster/climate control/trip computer working.

2. Can the later e series electric cruise control be made to work with the ea-ed steering wheel and ifso what do you need to do to make it work.

3. Could the power and economy switch in the early e series be made to work in direction it would have with original early e series harness and ecu.

guess if you use the el harness with ed ecu that the switch wouldn’t get reversed.

4. Could the ed climate control panel and sensors be made to work with the el harness with a few mods,

the trip computer and cluster could easily be made to work by soldering new plugs and running a wire to temp sensor same with tail lights.



thanks for any help

A- if TimmyA can put a AU wiring harness in his EB sedan ... don't see why not.

A- not sure on that. i know later need resistance changes.

A- change wiring in plug to suit.


4. Could the ed climate control panel and sensors be made to work with the el harness with a few mods,

A- have no idea.

If you were going to put in full el dash then it’d be plug and play but want the ed dash and climate control,

Might have a look on ef/el cruise control into ea-ed then it’ll give a idea on what to do
