Had the same problem with the short wires, but it did work
The grommets I also had a problem with I cut the one for the speedo cable
Then I found out how to get those big wires in the little holes? took a long
tip needle nose pliers and spread the holes and stuck in the wires it work
fine had no other problem's ,except I use a one wire alt. and the harness is
pre wired for both.
what do you do with extra wires cut them off?????
