Hi wac...

Unfortunately, unless there is some car 
nut out there that has put this info online,
it won't be found easily. Have you tried 
contacting the local Chrysler dealer, or
their corporate HQ? They are usually good
about giving out this info, and if there
is a cost, it would reasonably be around
$10-$15 to get it.

That is probably all we could do too. Are
there any Chilton's or Haynes books for
your car?

Have you tried the local library for any
books? I have a Motors Manual from 1978
but there are no diagrams for wiring in

Maybe a post to a group would yield a
[ ]

This guy in 98 had one...

It seems like you will have to order something
to get the info...

[ :// ]

Do you need the diagram, JUST for the ignition system?
Or the entire wiring harness? How many wires are to the
ignition system? There is a STRONG possibility that
another Chrysler of the same era might be wired the same
way. And as a last clarification… do you mean the
ignition system, key switch, interlock, etc in the interior… 
or ignition system, spark, etc under the hood?

Hi again wac...

I just flipped to the back of my
Motors Manual and found:
Chrysler ignition circuiy diagram with a
temperature sensitive block-type resistor.

It's rather simple... is this what you are
interested in?

Thankyou, but this still is not what I am looking for.  
What is positive and what is negative for the electronic ignition
wires colors 1 orange wire and 1 black & white wire, found under the
distributor cap for the magntic pick up.  Much appreciated WAC-ga

Hehe, I always fear the simple answers...

But never fear this... I have more diagrams.

So let me narrow down the specifics...

Is it a breakerless inductive discharge (BID) unit?

Is the Chrysler an electronic lean burn system?

Is the polarized connector missing?

Hi again I purchased the engine only out of the 1976 Cordoba, so no
vehicle for references.  Yes it is a BID unit.  I don't know about
your other 2 questions.

Hi there wac...

I scanned the remaining pages that
refer to the Chrysler Ignition system.
This also has distributor blow-ups.

Any chance one of these are what you need?

I called the local Chrysler company today,
about your car and another that was a question
here at also. They seemed to be
ignorant of anything pre 90's. Like they didn't
ever exist. I said, can you tell me anyone to call
about this? He said... no, can't think of anyone.
I said... anyone old enough there that might have
owned one? He said, nope... don't think so. I said,
thanks... bye.

Let me know if the info you need is here...
