  • AAW Install

    I am finally starting to install the AAW harness that my family got me for my Birthday last year. After a month of studying the diagrams, both for the old and the new, it is time to make some connections. As suggested in the AAW manual I am using a GM alternator that I rebuilt and have modified to fit, a pretty simple job if I may say so. The harness on the other hand is daunting. I believe I have figured out the system using the information provided but have been unable to contact anyone at AAW to answer some of the questions that I have. I'm going to take a bunch of pics and will post them. Anyone with any experience installing this harness please feel free to chime in with any suggestions!
    Thanks

    Great to hear your're diving into the AAW install, you'll be very happy with the results. I completed mine just last month and now enjoying fully functional electrical accessories and great peace-of-mind. Before you get started I would suggest checking the presence of both the hazard indicator lead and the turn signal lead, both were missing from mine. Thankfully, these are easily added.

    Good luck!

      Thanks, It took me a while to realize they were missing. I was wondering if they needed to be added or if they had been addressed by some other part of the harness and not documented. Thanks for clearing that up! It's one of the bigger jobs left on the restoration and I can't wait to get it going.

          Please create a signature line that includes the year of your car. This is especially important when answering electrical questions as wiring may have changed from year to year

            I also completed the AAW install last year. Take your time and buy a good bottle of scotch. I tinned every connection for my piece of mind and installed three grounding bars. Best of luck and enjoy the journey.

              I am very happy with the AAW system and was able to add a subwoofer, amplifier and seat heaters.

              The AAW system includes wiring for cooling fan override and electric fuel pump, I don't use either but it's nice to know they are available.

                As you can see I have a sort of hybrid car, the wiring was shot hence the decision to go to the AAW harness. Jon or Bob, if either of you know where those 2 missing wires connect on the relevant relays I would greatly appreciate it if you could advise me. I am also figuring out where the 2 wires connect on the starter solenoid. 1 goes to a spade connection and one goes to a post connection on my solenoid and I can't tell which goes where. Any info or pics would be great. I have a post called Build or Bust 2015 in the mechanical forum with some other pics showing the rebuild so far, if curious.

                Thanks for the help.
