SOURCE: Amplifier hook up

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

As you have planned, the "product from scosche" would convert the speaker outputs to line level suitable for the Line level input of the amplifier. The RCA (red & white) would provide the connections. Of interest would be the following wires of the Neon:

  • Pink/Light Blue - always on B+12 (connected directly to the battery)
  • Red/White - IGN switch controlled ACC +12
  • Black - GROUND
  • Dark Green - left front +
  • Brown/Red - left front -
  • Violet - right front +
  • Dark Blue/Red - right front -
  • Brown/Yellow - left rear +
  • Brown/Light Blue - left rear -
  • Dark Blue/White - right rear +
  • Dark Blue/Orange - right rear -
You need to decide which speaker pair you would want to tap/convert to RCA type, front or rear.

Incidentally, the stock Neon stereo does not have a trigger wire to activate the external amplifier. This being so, a separate switched + 12 must be wired to trigger the external amp. This is separate from the always on B+12 of the amp.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Car just stopped running. Lost power suddenly.

Find an inductive pickup indicator for spark. Place on distributor cap to see if spark is at coil internal tower. If no spark at internal tower, look at ignition module or pickup coil. Ignition modules are prone to failure on 626's. But if you have spark at tower but not at the wire end, then your rotor is gone.

SOURCE: anyway to hook up an amp power wire w/o unhooking battery?

There should be a large red wire going to your fuse box under the hood. You can put it there. You can unhook your battery also your computer should be fine. Think about it if everytime someone changed a bad battery they would have to go to dealer not true. What you have heard some older cars the computer can be reset by removing the negative. I take the positive off all the time on cars your age and have never had any problems

If you smell fuel, Try locating the source. It may be a fuel line leak if the smell is that strong. You may be loosing fuel preasure to the injectors if a leak is occuring. Always start with the basics along with visual over sight before repairs.

You'll need to have someone scan the computer to get the trouble codes to proceed.
Most auto parts stores will scan for free in hopes of selling you some parts. The codes only tell the mechanic what to test, not what to replace.

So you have no spark from the coil or you have spark from the coil but not at the plugs. You said it turns over really fast? Have you checked the timing belt?

I have a 1996 caprice classic _ v8 5.7 engine.. & my check engine light is on but the car seems to run perfectly fine.. I jus brought the car & plan on changing the spark plugs & wires, but...

you need to hook up a diagnostic code retrieving tool to the aldl < assembly line diagnostic link > this is located under the instrument panel on the drivers side, plug the tester into the link, then turn on the ignition key, but do not start the vehicle, the tester will cycle through the computer , and will retrieve any trouble codes that the computer has picked up, once you have recieved the trouble code or codes, write them down, and then turn off the ignition key, and unplug the tester, then compare the codes to the code booklet, and then it will tell you what the code stands for, and then you can check those areas to see what the problem is, also if you do not have a tester, a auto part store will check this for free, hope that this information has helped you.

No power to the coil. Car cranks but no spark from coil and we replaced the coil new 2 times figured that the 1st one was defective but still no spark

I had similar problem would crank but not start. Tried many things finally found the distributor wires & cap was the problem. Was many years ago don't remember exact details, think cap had hairline crack that couldn't be seen. Just enough to let moisture in to the wires. replaced cap problem solved. Good luck.
