The haynes wiring diagram should be plenty detailed. I have a 79 and it shows everything I have. BTW, your profile is still blank.

I've got the '77 service manual with the wiring schematic. But I don't have a scanner. If you can't find them I can copy and fax them to you if you'd like. PM me with a # to fax to and I'll see if I can help you with the schematic.

If it's that bad off in the wiring department, might you be interested in a new wiring harness? they can be had from Jeep parts suppliers for a range of prices depending on how easy you to make it. You can work on electical gremlins for the rest of your natural life with these old CJs [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Please Help me with a 77 Cj-7!

The electrical gremlins do exist. I saw one jump out from under my hood the other day but I wasn't able to catch him. I've only had my CJ-5 for a month now and with the fiberglass body I lose a ground pretty easily. Right now my turn signals work, but the parking lights don't. Go figure. Who knows what will go next, but once I can afford it I'm going to get a new wiring harness. Good luck to both of us.
