I think the HLiner product is designed for under the hood, so not that smarts, haha.

If I have some left over I will install under the trans tunnel and on the inside of the bulkhead. Trying to quiet this thing down. But doesn't help that I don't have some of the flooring installed yet

After looking at the VDO thread and seeing the nicely done dash wiring on some threads and the fact I had to re-wire/re-do the speedo, oil pressure and tach I decided to do it better than I had it originally.

A couple of orders to britishwiring.com and I used much better connectors than the PepBoys crimp ones I had.

I made a loom for the speedo and used one on of the factory 3 port connectors I had leftover.

I also ran new ground wires so each VDO gauge has a solid ground.

Pic of the dash installed and lit.

The oil pressure warning light works now thanks to a new VDO sender with dual ports (ground and sender).

And the speedometer has the correct miles on it now thanks to VDO tech support.

...makes me wonder if I got the right sender...

I did get that same speedo, I have no clue how to hook it up. So you built your own harness? What connector did you use for the large multi-plug at the back?

Any pointers?

Thanks - I've learned a good amount on wiring with this project but still a lot more to learn. Wiring reminds me of my computer programming days.

I used the VDO 360-009 sender. It has one lead (sender) for the VDO gauge and one lead (ground) for the dash light.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00..._detailpages00




For the Speedo I built 2 mini-harness:

#1 - goes from the VSS on the T-case up to the upper bulkhead - 3 wires: ground (screwed into bulkhead), sender, and power feed.
#2 - goes from firewall to dash - the sender and power feed - the sender wire splits into 2 for the VDO Speedo and has power feed send power from the VDO Speedo to the VSS at the transfer case.



The large multi-plug was stock 300tdi on the main harness. I bought some new connectors and pins from Eastern Beaver and had all the dash wires go into that.

Now when I pull the dash I disconnect the 8 pin, 3 pin and 2 black individual for the ground wires and the dash comes out. Easy to re-install as each group only has one it can match up with.

Made a "quick" plate to hang the glowplug control, Taurus fan control and the Dakota Digital tach control.

Just have to wire these up and I should be all set at least for this stage of wiring.

Backside pic - I cut out a piece from aluminum - put a 90 bend on it (using the HF brake I got a month ago makes this a ton easier). Then welded a piece of angle aluminum and a tab so it can mount to a hole on the inner fender.

Gauges mounted up. I used nutserts so it should be easy to get them off when needed.

Mounted on the fender - should make for easy access and quick to check. It's recessed so water shouldn't be an issue.

On the picture of the back of the speedo, it looks like you just used straight individual connectors for each wire?

Washer bottle is on the other side (RH).

I was going to try and hang some of these things on he bulkhead but there just isn't room. And with this location it is close and easy to check.

Once installed I realized I don't have room to run a snorkel line tho. I was thinking of running one in the future.

I did save for the light connections which are 90 degrees connectors.

No, I mean on the speedo, the main connection. It looks like one big multi-connector slot, but on your picture you just used individual wires, right?

I wanted to run a VDO tach. Originally I was planning on a sensor that reads the flywheel teeth and then sends that signal to the Dakota Digital module.

But I found a garage locally that could add a W wire off the alternator. The Dakota Digital module can read that as well.

I still need to fine tune it but it does work.

I redid some wiring in the engine bay. The grounds I had didn't look nice so I grabbed a bus from West Marine to distribute the wires.

I also grabbed a fused box to run wires to the Dakota Digital, DC Control and electric fuel pump.

The glowplug wiring was moved and rerouted.

Picture of the main wiring box, Dakota Digital module, Mercedes glow plug relay and DC control module.

This and the wiring and the Taurus fan install has taken weeks but pretty happy with how it all came out.
