I have a 94 K1500 4x4. Its still IFS till I get my blazer done. But I need some help on the wiring for the front actuator cause someone cut mine so I gotta rewire it back. I need to know what wires go where. Any help or info would be great. Thanks.

I believe the two wire is the thermal switch....put it 4wd and see what wire of the two (from the original wiring source TO the actuator) is hot.....the other is ground. They are color coded.....what is left of the wiring??

My 95 Burb has 4 wires, 2 plugs, one plug has 2 wires for the actuator, the other plug has 2 wires for the indicator light.

Buy or build a cable shifter. The thermal acctuators are crap.
