SOURCE: 2004 KIA Optima LX timing belt/water pump

The thing is your doing the timing belt the water pump is right their with it . it should cost you much more at all besides the cost of the water pump. When doing a timing belt I have a rule that I go by The timing belt/seals =cam , crank , any pulley & tensioner & water pump all get replaced at the same time. I did a t-belt on a Audi A-8 very complex whole front of car has to come off as well, he didnt want to do w-pump & thermostat his thermostat was their as well not even a month later the water pump gave out he had to pay double the price because he didnt want to do it when I had it apart the first time. And make sure mechanic is ase certified . good luck

SOURCE: The airbag light in dash staying on in my 2004

Under driver and passenger seats are wires that go to seat belt anchors.These are tensioner wires.Unplug the wires from the plug under the seat.clean and replace.Doing this while the ignition is turned off.Then turn ignition back on.In 90% of the time this is your problem.Constant movement of seat causes this or rear passengers kicking plugs off.Good luck phil.

We got an aftermarket stereo for our 2001 Volvo s60 an got the wrong wiring harness so we cut into the stock harness to put the new stereo in an now the driver door has no power and all the electrical on...


Hi Kacie.

Pretty much the only thing to do is remove the harness you spliced into the incorrect harness and use crimp connectors (the GOOD ones, not those cheap plastic blue ones) to match wire-for-wire and restore the original circuitry. THEN have at the correct harness and reinstall the stereo wiring. It's a PITA all right, but it really is the best way to fix your problem.

Sorry about the bad news...

Color codes for stereo


They make kits just for this. Just plugs into the existing harness and then you run you wires to the wires from that harness, some may even have matching plugs that go directly to the Head units wire harness plug. I did My Mustang by cutting into the wire Harness and simply used a multimeter to check for battery, memory 12 volts and running light or dash board Illumination wires then you can test the wires coming out from the stock radio to see which are right, left , front, rear, antenna out, etc..

I just labeled them with magic marker on some masking tape with what they were before I cut off the harness permanently.

Want to replace stereo in 2002 tbird, how do i access and connect to subwoofers and power amps. what do i need ?


The stereo in Ford products comes out with a special tool, Which you can find at a place that sells car radios. Remember that Ford used a Premium JBL/Philco stereo in your car at the factory.
Connecting subwoofers and power amps means going to the main fuse box under the hood rather than the smaller one in the cabin. You may actually wind up running a power feed directly from the battery. I would then buy one of the harness adapters from a stereo shop to match the new radio and equipment into my system. They come with instructions so that you so not have to butcher your wiring harness to install a new radio and speakers.
Comment: Over the years, I have seen some very nice cars depreciated in value when the owners cut into the harnesses to install sound ewquipment and made a mess of it. Use caution.

Aftermarket stereo wiring harness does not fit oem connectors. ordered stereo and harness together fom online car stereo.com. calledout a metra #70-1761. plugs will not fit either male plug. factory plugs...


Theres a standard amongst most stereos, so if these colors apply, then you will be right,
Red is Ignition power
orange is direct power
Black is earth
blue is for phone
White is for electric arial
then there will be four coloured wires with matching color trace wires, these are the speaker wires.
Hope this gets you going, good luck.

I have a 91 honda accord and the previous owners cut the nuetral safety switch wire off underneath the dash. where can i get the wires to replace them?


  1. Try your local junk yard or buy it threw the dealer, the plug can be replaced, most likely he cut it at the switch and not at the connector plug on the harness.

The wires for the stereo are cut


Yes this is not to bad to deal with.. make sure you use quality wire connectors so you don't have problems later with bad connections. you pretty much just have to match the colors from the harness in the car to the ones on your deck. If you don't want to cut off the harness connector on your deck just purchase one that you can connect to your deck and cut the wire ends on the other side of the adapter. The only wires you wont be able to match color for color is speaker wires... for these you will just have to hook them up temp. and test to see that they are connected to the proper speaker output. close.gif Read more >> Options >> answers-logo.gif
