Black: ground( all bulbs require a ground to operate)
green: right turn
yellow: left turn
red: brake
yellow and purple: back up

these are basic wiring colors they may not be exact for your aplication your best bet is to find someone u know with an ohm meter( multi meater) who knows how to test voltage and sort out the wires and re connect with splices NOT tape ur only asking for trouble if u dont do it right the first time ( oh before u start check the fuse size and get some extra u will probably blow a few sorting it out best of luck

As 95, well backup are just 1 wire. not lots.
is this a M/T car or A/T
on the A/T back up comes from the PRNL switch on the side of tranny.
if M/T 5 speed, its from the 5speed box , switch at rear of box.
the schematic is clear.
Turn-back fuse blow, (do turns work>?)
yellow wire leaves the tranny.
see page 4 (for front feed)
see page 6 here for rear feed.

as you cans see, yellow, wire changes to red bad at the rear.
if 12v at rear, in reverse. try the yellow at tranny.
if no 12v there cut wires up front, if 12v good at tranny
only on input, then the switch at tranny is bad, if 12v good in and out
of said switch then wires are cut to the rear.
a $20 volt meter finds the fault. post to voltages measured, an it gets easier.

Go to and buy the wiring for your vehicle. Other wise go to the junk yard and cut the plugs and wires out of an exact vehicle. This is the only two ways you will fix it. Exact diagrams or exact plugs and switches.

What does it mean when the car dies and wont crank back up

When this situation occurs, turn the ignition ON. You should hear the fuel pump, pump up to pressurize the system. If not, then look for a poor connection on the fuel pump and fuel pump ground wires. If you turn the ignition ON and the instrument panel lights, etc do not come ON, this points to a loose connection in the ignition circuit - maybe a faulty ignition switch.

My headlights, hazard, turn lights, and my horn does'nt have power. help.

you may have messed up the module your lights are ran in parallel circuits so just in case you loose one light you wont loose both. so my next thing to check would be the control module or the swith. get a test light and check for power at the switch. if you have power their go to the headlights and check power their.

Four wheel wont disengage. had switch for 4x4 set to 2wd and the light switched to 4wd while driving down the road and the four wheel drive engaged. Tried to switch from 2wd to 4wd and back but didnt...

if it is a turn knob that puts it in 4x4.then a wire under the truck is touching the exhaust pipe making it do this. I had this happen to mine. It will be 2 wires so they more and likely came loose.

I have no headlights on 1988 mustang gt turn signals brake lights and parking lights and dash lights all work but the head lights wont come on checked all fuses and relays there all good thanks

Check headlight lamps... then follow the wiring from the bulb connections back and make sure you're getting a good solid ground connection. It may have a loose, broken, severed grounding wire.. it's usually attached to the car body at some location not far from the headlights.

Van wont start, battery is ok,lights come on ok.then you try to crank it over and everything goes dead? no lights no dash or dome lights all black. wait a few minutes lights come back on then turn key all...

The problem is a loose connection at your battery or the distribution block. This is normally the ground wire. Try tightening these connections and you should not have a problem. Or wiggle the wires.

Back Tails/Loose Wire


Initially, pls try:
  • determine exactly where the loose connection is;
  • if it is on the connector, unplug and clean the prongs and contact mates;
  • you could also try using an electric contact cleaner but manual cleaning is still best;
  • in some instances, you may need to scrape the prongs to ensure no corrosion;
  • in some instances, you may need to slightly bend the prongs so that they provide more pressure when plugged in.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
