Sprint Wiring Diagram

PostPost by: Type28 » Mon Feb 22, 2016 12:41 pm

Hi Folks

Had a look around the forum for a diagram. I can find a very good one for an S4 that I can print out at A1 size.
Is there one for a Sprint lurking about that I haven't found?- is the S4 basically the same as the Sprint.

I am changing my Dash and want to double check the wiring before I re-install it.

Thanks

Ah, not exactly. The S4 uses Lucar connectors between the dash harness and the engine harness. The Sprint uses pins with a plastic connector that is no longer available. There are a few other minor differences, but the bottom line is that they are not the same.

Glen the question was "are they basically the Same"? Not "are they identical?"...

Symantics Phil. I thought the same when I bought a sprint harness for my S4. There were enough differences that I exchanged it for an S4 harness. If you just want to trace wires, then yes basically the same. If you are rewiring, then the answer is no.

Thanks for the help- printed of one of the great S4 diagrams from the site on to A1 paper so its easy to read, now have a good idea on what colour wires go were.
Cheers
