Angry 98' V6, 3.8 - Engine Wiring HELP!!

Recently purchased a 98 Vert v6 for my g/f. This was a fixer upper so it was a bit cheap. The car originally didnt crank took it to my mechanic turned out it was the fuel pump that was bad. Replaced it and 48hrs later Car wont start AGAIN! I think it has something to do with the Wiring in it.

1.When i honk the horn it stays stuck and keeps honking until i unhook the battery.

2.The trunk release in the glove box doesnt work. BUT sometimes when i hit the car unlock button for the driver door (if the ignition is open) IT UNLOCKS THE TRUNK.

3. The lights on the Sun Visors dont work.

4. There are some plugs by the cold air intake that arent plug BUt i have NO IDEA where the hek they go to??

I looked up the fuse box diagram and it doesnt even look like the fuse box thats in the car. Im thinking they swapped it with one that doesnt belong to this car. I have attached some pictures of the fuse box and the connectors that i have no idea where they go??

Both connectors are located on the RH Passenger Fender.
Any info would help with this PHSYCO CAR!.

Thanks!
Alex

That's the wrong fusebox. That's the engine management stuff, the fusebox in your diagram is in the passenger compartment.

Ok, those are engine management sensors, Best guess is the TPS which should be near the intake, and the EGR sensor. How long have they been unhooked?

The plugs probably have been un-hooked for a while. The car was sitting for over 6months. But also ive noticed that the harness that plugs into the fuel rails has been tampered with of some sort. So I might just replace all the wiring harness's in the engine compartment to make sure. What years am i compatible with? 94 - 98 am i compatible with any GT's? thanks for the info.

There was a 1998.5 that had some wiring in common with the 1999s.

But the fuses should be described on the back cover of the fuse box.

The connector on the left, from Chilton's, is probably either an oxygen sensor, an AC cyclic pressure switch, or an EGR sensor

On the Right, it looks like an Idle Air Control solenoid, an EGR vacuum regulator, a secondary air injection diverter, or a SAI bypass.

I have the Chilton book#26608. Im thinking i should just try and get a fuse box from a 96-98 for this model. That way theres no diffrence in the fuse box? Or if anyone can confirm that the box shown on the pics is the exact same thing as the one for a 98 model.

thanks
