1988 Jeep Wrangler - Help with Nutter Bypass

Ok, I'm stuck here scratching my head on this nutter bypass thing. I traced the coil wires back to where they go into the firewall, but I don't see an orange wire coming out. Also, I'll be damned if I can find the ignition control module. Where the hell is it? At this point if I could find it I'd just snip the two distributor wires and run new ones all the way to the module.

1. You're not going to be able to trace from device to device.
2. You trace from device to major input to the wiring loom and cut there.
3. Splice into the wring harness to the ignition module.
4. The module's located underneath the washer fluid bottle on the drivers fender.
5. If you're haveing problems with the wiring colors... match color for color, splice wiring from distributor harness into module harness.

Re: 1988 Jeep Wrangler - Help with Nutter Bypass

Thanks, Leve. I finally found and traced it all out; the factory switched from an orange lead to a pea green/black lead, then to an orange lead. Didn't expect it and it threw me off.

Holy smokes! What a difference. Feels like someone pulled the cork outta the motor. 4K rpms without a hiccup, barks second gear and chirps third! Color me impressed.
