Get an install kit from a car audio store. It will have an adaptor that you can plug in to factory plug so you know what wires go where.

Wiring pigtail input speed sensor on my 2000 sonata. The new plug came with three white wires but the wires from car are different colors. color wiring diagram ?

the connector is the same on both the old harness and the new pigtail. As long as you orientate the connectors the same way you just match up the wires. let me try to explain it this way. If you hold the old connector so the part that holds the connector to the sensor is facing up. Hold the new connector exactly the same way. cut the left wire on both and connect the new connector wire to the old wiring harness. Then cut the center wire and connect them. then cut the right wire and connect. No wiring diagram needed.

One thing I will add is to stagger the new connections. Meaning do nut cut them at the place. Cut one wire then cut the next about an inch or so further and then cut the next about an inch or so further than that. This will prevent the new connections from potentially shorting to each other and will keep the harness from becoming really bulky with all the but connectors in the same location.

Igot universal lambda sensor for suzuki liana whant to change the plug from my old one but colores are different

that is correct, all 02 makers use there OWN colors
there is NO STANDARD there, or for the car harness, either.
to cut a fat hog and not buy PNP sensors
you agreed, (by default) TO HAVE a FSM schematic
and the new sensors colors, sheet.
wow no year or engine stated, so, near impossible.

ill assume (stupidly) its a 4 wire sensor.
car CELL + to sensor CELL+
car CELL - to sensor CELL -
Car heater to any sensor heater wire
car heater to any sensor heater wire, other one.
colors dont matter only above does.

but yes, you must match them correctly or risk blowing out a nice
$1000 ECU.

tell full car spec, to me, year and engine size
then tell make and p/n of sensor and ill send you the wiring.,
done 100s.

see this guy guy here hand wiring the Universal to a suzuki G16B

if a BOSCH , IS IT?
do not mix the black and gray wires. do not.

as you can see, suzuki changes the CELL+ wire
like my wife changes drapes.

post the car data and i can help.

im a retired, electronic tech, certified, 3 ways.

Problem is we can't pull it apart to take it to get replacement, any suggestions

Okay, this problem is very common, even if the connector did pull off it would be no good due to melting and bruning of connector.

This problem is common on dodge and chrysler cars and truck.

To solve your problem you will need to cut wires about 2inches back from connector, you will be replacing the blower resistor and connector. i am doing one as we speak, i have done many of these, the one i am doing is on a durango.

you will need to go to dealer for the connector, the connector will come in a kit, they give you a bunch of wires with small connector that slides into new plug, you match up the wire size to the same size wire you have or can use a bigger wire but never go thinner, you will use your old connector as a guide to install the new wires into new connector, then again using old connector to match new wires to wires in truck, then tape up connections,

it is not hard at all to do just make sure correct wire is going into correct slot on new connector, you will need to label them with a piece of tape and write old wire color on tape or use old connector to match up wiring. the new wires are not the same color they are green and purple wires only which is what they sell in kit,

the part # for wiring kit is 1-05017124ac this contains the wires ,crimps and plug.

the resistor # is 1-05061575aa.

I would give the dealer the year,make, model and the vin # just to make sure your kit is the same. good luck and if you need help write back.

IMPORTANT ; make sure when cutting wires that key is off and cut one wire at a time, this will avoid popping a fuse. good day

How do i replace the odometer cluster on a 2001 Buick Century? Odometer only light up if i hit dashboard, Then it goes out.

You dont need to replace the cluster you just need to replace the bulbs, by hitting it the bulb filment thats bad make a connection, if you remove the cluster and look at the rear of it you will see the bulbs, there are many bulbs some for the battery light and oil light, so use a flash light and when you remove a bulb shine light through the hole and see if it the correct bulb or if its a symbol bulb, most of the time the lighting bulbs use a diffrent color socket, what you do is untwist the socket then it pulls out and the bulb is on it, you then pull bulb out of socket and install new bulb on socket and twist back in, you dont need to replace the whole cluster and the bulbs are sold at any parts place, take one out and match it up it should be part # 194 bulb.

Pcm on 99 f-150 only sending 1.5 volts to crank and camshaft sensor,recently swaped 99 5.4 for 2002 5.4 checked for pinched wires all are good

computers have numbers on them, and this for a very important reason. Even on same year model vehicles, sometimes the color coding, and pins do not match. I had problems from check engine lights to cars not starting at all. Unlike mechanical things where physicall appearance tells you they are the same. If you look inside the computer itself. There is no way for you to tell if they are the same or not. For one thing the main chip there are programmed, and which may look the same but with diffrent program. I suggest using a computer of the same year. At least there is a better chance of matching. It is a lot better than getting from a diffrent year which may have a diffrent program or even a diffrent circuit.

Just need to knw the names of wires like positive

best advice is to go to a stereo store or a auto parts and by a harness kit. this way you sit at a desk and match up wires,crimp em together, then just plug them in. compare the schematics of deck and kit and thats it, there like 15-20 bucks and you dont cut any factory wires to install.

The color of the wires from my old and new radio dont match up!?

Jags are definitely a pure breed. The new radio most likely has writing on the wires that tell where they are to be connected to. I take that back. I just checked the wiring of an older model JVC unit and there or not listings. If your radios doesn't have writing just remember Orange(or yellow) is illumination, and it goes to the fuse block; red is power, going to the fuse block; the big black one is the ant.; the little one is the ground to the chassis. The others are speakers. Connect them to the colors they are closely resembling in your Jag. Connect the power and turn on your radio. You can reconnect the lines to the correct speaker by checking each speaker. hope this helps.
