That rings true with?everything I found on my car.
I also agree wholeheartedly with the repair method. Any idea where can I get a "new" connector for the F20 position?
The CPS install went great! I sure appreciate your help with the part. Was the check still there Sunday night? I probably should have concealed?it better.
Anyway thanks a ton!!?

I pulled out my original '82 urq harness and traced the wires as much as I could.?
On my harness, there are two red/black wires coming out of the F20 contact. One is about 4" long with a single pin white connector, which mates to the brake light wire in the rear harness. Unfortunately, the other wire has been spliced, but I think that it goes off to the cruise control harness. One of the two wires in my harness is barely hanging on to the contact by maybe five strands. I wouldn't doubt if your original got broken off.?
The way that I would recommend to fix your issue is to remove the contact in F20, cut off the contact and put in a new one with the existing wire that goes up into the dash and another wire that you can connect to the brake light wire. I wouldn't recommend splicing.?
P.S. How did the CPS installation go??
