wtb: 1987 944 S engine harness

As title states, I am in need of an engine harness for an 87 S. My friend had a short in his harness and it fried a bunch of wiring. Shipping would be to Fontana, CA 92336.

I had the same issue, just installed a "new" harness and now I'm having start and cluster issues...

We think the power steering sensor is the culprit. It caught fire and fried the harness all the way up to the firewall/behind the engine.

That is the typical failure point on the S/S2 cars. There is no fuse on that wire and it tends to soften and can short out.

I thought that this typically leads to frying of the computer?

I have a second 944S engine in the shop, including a wiring harness. I'll check it out and call today.

Hariush, are you buying 944S parts/cars?

Ok, the harness I have looks complete and way better than the one in his car!

Any input on the current market value of a 944S harness? We've been helping a customer along with his "make 2 cars into 1 project from hell 944S's" and I want to give him a good deal without giving it away.

I bought a new '89S2 engine wiring harness from Lindsey a year or so back. When I received it, the harness was NOS for the S, not S2. I returned it. You might try them and see if they still have it.
