Has anyone documented (other than diagrams) the pictures of the interior electrical connectors? I have a very had time reading and trying to follow electrical diagrams is almost impossible. My sons and I have been restoring a 1974 camaro that was the same car I drove in high school. Unfortunately, all of the pictures I took during disassembly were destroyed and now I have around 5 connectors hanging below the dash that I have no idea where they go. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

First pic, the 3 prong connector on the right is for the radio harnes / pigtail to the radio. Third pic is the conector for the pigtail for the clock in the dash. The larger conecter in the second pic might be for the ignition switch but not sure. Hope this helps.

Thanks a lot! Appreciate the help. The large one is still a mystery. It does look like the ignition switch but that one is already hooked up. Two of the wires coming out of the large connector are fairly large gauge so it must be for something that sucks some power.

Is it for the neutral safety switch? Based off the colors of the wire, I know pink and green are back up lights and purple for the neutral start. It dos not have the correct shape but throwing it out there.

This car doesn't have electric windows or locks. Is it possible that they installed the same connects on all versions and just didn't use them on the base model? I spent another hours crawling around under the dash looking for something that resembles these connects and can't find a thing.

I still think the one with the purple, green and pink are for the neutral safety switch. It should be located at the base of the steering column. I have never seen the one with all the yellow wires.

So the purple, green, and pink should plug into the base of the steering column? I will look into that tomorrow. Seems to be in the right location for that. Fingers crossed!
Thanks for the help.

If you look at the base of the column where it meets the firewall the neutral safety switch is mounted on top of it. I'm just guessing but with the location of your picture and the wire colors it might be. I don't have a photo handy for a reference.

The neutral safety switch is above what’s the lower one ? I’ve seen that switch before but not sure what it does
