This book is a fairly comprehensive guide to almost every style and type of ignition and the related components. It does not have factory wiring diagrams for all the makes and models of cars produced. For an OEM wiring diagram you may want to check with GM or one of our suppliers such as Painless Wiring or American Autowire.
