    Hello,
    I am hoping someone can help me. I need a diagram of the fuses for a 1979 sr5 20r pickup, or a picture of the fuse box lid would be great.

    Just inherited this truck, got it running, but none of the electrics work, except for starting and charging circuits. New fuel pump wired in on switch.

    Any info on the fuse box is great. Thanks

    Had a Haynes, and took me a few hours to realize the wiring diagram was in there. They only listed it as 73-78 and then jumped to 80+.

    After a lot of head scratching and matching wire colors to diagrams and continuity testing from fuse to component, finally figured them out.

    Got most everything working, hazards won't work and driver side headlight is dim, ground problem somewhere I'm sure.

    Its running pretty good now, replaced wheels and tires, full tune up, carb rebuild, new exhaust. Fun little thing.

    Try Rock Auto for parts and they have some factory service manuals plus others

    I get most all my parts from RockAuto. I can't believe how cheap the parts are for this thing.

    You ever try getting the wire diagram from autozone? They have repair manuals online, not the most complete or detailed but they help

    I ended up staring at the Haynes manual, tracing colors and continuity until I came up with most of what I needed. Took me a while to figure out the wiring diagram for my truck was actually in there.
