Cut a wiring harness...

Anyone know where I can get a diagram for the wiring under the hood of my 6.0? I was installing cutout fender flares today and as I was doin some cutting I accidentally smoked one of the wiring harnesses with the sawzall.. No clue which harness it is but I need to find out so I can order a new one

There should be some tags on the harness itself. You can call Ford with a description of the location, the tags, and the number of pins in which colored connector. They can track it for you.

Or.....

You could just solder the wires back to themselves and cover each one with heatshrink, then tape them all up. A little time consuming, but possible.

Ya I ended up taking a better look at it and I only had cut 5 wires, and it was part of the main harness which I was not about to replace, so I ended up just repairing it like you said. Thanks for the response

Not to laugh at your pain but it brough back memories of when I was drilling a hole in the trunk of my car to bolt a sub box down and drilled right in to the gas tank.

But yeah, you basically have 2 options as stated above, find any tags, count the pins, color code of the plug, are there any other plugs on the connection, etc and contact Ford or just break out the soldering gun and heat wrap and get cozy for a while.

Haha ya that sounds like a pretty painful experience. A few wires seems a little easier to fix than a whole in the top of a gas tank
