Connecting A/C to 94, missing connectors

I picked up a a/c kit from a fellow board member. I believe it was the Rovernorth kit, looks like a 97 style inside. Anyway, the wiring harness was nicely labeled, but there is one set of wire with a red connector and another black that are suppossed to tie into the vehicle wiring. I don't have those wires off my harness, nor do I have the fuses or fuse "wires".

Does any one know the purpose of the those? and how to bypass? Hoped it was grounds and battery, but I heard a tie-in to the ECU so the computer can idle correctly to compensate for the draw of the a/c?

Anyway have a clue?
Thanks

Anyone have a circuit diagram that shows the A/C wiring clearly?
I have a 95 wiring diagram but it doesn't show the wires that tie into the a/c from what I can tell.
Someone has to have tackled this ahead of me

THanks
Bryan

Brayn...I just installed an AC kit in my 95...did you pull up the passenger side rubber mat on the drive tunnel? under that mat are the two plugs you are looking for (at least they were on mine...I also have the wiring diagram but can't send it to you until next week when I get back to my office and a scanner...

Thanks,
I think the problem is some 94's (maybe all?) don't have the harness you are referring to.
I have no A/C fuses. I know what I am missing, I am trying to figure how to "rig" a harness.
If I can figure what each wire does, I can try to tap into the existing setup.
I heard from one member who went thru the same thing, he found a way to rig it. But his truck was not nearby for him to tell me how to wire it.
Thanks for checking
Bryan
