Hi All,
I have a low-optioned 210 that came with the full wiring harness and fuse block. I would like to hook up my standard heater per 1957, (which before anyone comments doesn't show up in ANY factory wiring schematic), and I was wondering if anyone out there can tell me how that once was. There is a 5-wire plug that seems to be for the deluxe heater. The dark blue wire in this plug goes directly to the fused "heater" connection on the fuse block. Sounds like a winner, right? Plug one switch wire here, the other to the blower ...

BUT the brown wire coming from the blower motor goes into a three prong plug (the other two slots being empty). This wire has been spliced at one point so I am not 100% sure ... maybe the plug isn't original to this car as plugging it into the only slot it would fit (the orange wire of the three prong AC plug) would bypass the switch of course.

Any takers? Thanks!
Markus

A standard recirculating heater has a different wiring harness from the delux heater. The delux heater has a bank of speed control resistors in the heater box. The standard heater has a speed control resistor on the switch. To connect the standard, connect the brown heater wire directly to the switch and the blue wire from the fuse directly to the switch.
Here's the delux resistors. Link to delux heater.

Thanks, that is what I was planning but wanted to be sure. The harness is definitely original to the car. I don't know if St. Louis put the "deluxe" harness in all 210's but I was the first person to tinker with it. Unfortunately that was almost 40 years ago and I can't remember this detail.
