looking for an electrician to help with wiring!

Hi! I'm in deland florida and i'm looking for someone to help out with our wiring.

i'm new to this school bus stuff so i'll be completely honest, we were following wires and tracing them back trying to remove the unneeded ones and upon doing so somewhere we disconnected the brake lights, blinkers, tail lights and reverse lights. all front lights still work.

we have a 2003 40' rear engine international, if anyone knows anyone who could come out and give us a hand that would be amazing!

Go to this thread.

I posted wiring diagrams for an amtran RE bus, 1999.

Most if not all the wiring schematics should be the same for your bus (2003).

To be honest with you, you do not need an expensive electrician. Anyone with basic car knowledge, anyone who has installed car stereos and 12 volt accessories can work this through for you, with the schematic diagrams.

The wires in the bus are color coded and have numbers printed on them which makes it super easy to identify.

Post #2 of that thread has the master wire list which is where you should begin, with the "Master Wire List".

If you are willing to spend some time and learn I could help you walk through this but in the meantime please leave the wires alone!

Also, does your bus still start and drive after removing the wires?


Again, anyone with basic 12 volt wire experience can handle this!
