Default need help with AC wiring

i am making a harness from scratch since my AC compressor wiring got lost somewhere. Can anyone help me with where the wires go? Is it the same as a 97'?

So far what ive got i referenced from my 97 and basically took one wire from a spade terminal behind the drivers headlight to the rearward pin on the 2pin connector. Then the forward pin on the 2pin connector is connected to the 1pin harness on the Compressor.

Anyway, help plz its not kicking on, pics are nice too.

Thanks man, those help a bit. The diagram shows the compressor connecting to a ground, would that just be through the casing straight to the block? Now, i double checked against my 97 just now and any wiring I can see is hooked up correctly ... hmm, maybe i should check my fuses and the relay ...

If you end up needing a new compressor or anything in the a/c system, LMK. I ripped mine out and have no plans of it going back in.

You should probably check out Joe's "the great a/c FAQ" in the megasquirt section.

So after going through the Factory service manual troubleshooting guide, it looks like my relay was bad. Kplafin, you sir have a PM.
