IGNITION SWITCH - NON-MATING CONDITION BETWEEN 14401 HARNESS CONNECTOR ASSEMBLY AND IGNITION SWITCH - "NEW" SPACER FOR ATTACHING IGNITION WIRING CONNECTION TO SWITCH - VEHICLES BUILT AFTER 5/20/94 - SERVICE TIP
Some vehicles may need re-work of the 14401 wiring harness. While attaching the harness connector to the ignition switch, a non-mating condition may occur. This is due to a design revision (larger tower on switch) of the ignition switch, and not having the proper spacer to clear the switch tower.
While re-working any 14401 harness (on affected vehicles built after 5/20/94), determine if the correct spacer (F4TB-14A468-CA) is attached to the ignition switch connector. The correct spacer will allow the "old" or "new" 14A464 connector to mate with the ignition switch assemblies F2DC-11572-AA or F4DC-11572-AA. Refer to the following service procedures.
Locate connector assembly F4TB-14A464-AYA or F2TB-14A464-VA and inspect to determine if spacer F4TB-14A468-CA (Service Number F4PZ-14A468-A) is attached (Figure 1).
THE SPACER IS GRAY AND THE PART NUMBER IS EMBOSSED ON THE FACE OF THE SPACER.
Figure 1 - Article 94-19-7
If spacer F2TB-14A468-HA is being used, please discard by prying off.
BE CAREFUL WHEN PRYING OFF THE OLD SPACER, SO THAT THE SPACER LEGS ARE NOT BROKEN OFF INSIDE THE CONNECTOR.
Snap on the "new" spacer F4TB-14A468-CA (Service Number F4PZ-14A468-A).
