Wiring off-road lights to the fuse box

I purchased a pair of off-road lights and installed them and when I ran the blue wire (hot) to the fuse box, I couldn't figure out how to hook it up. So instead, I just hooked the wire to a metal strip that is located at the end of the box that delivers power to it from the battery. Is this okay. Will it fry anything even though the blue wire does have a relay/fuse attached? How do I hook the blue wire to the fuse box?

    It already has an in-line fuse but I want to hook the hot wire under the fuse box like all the other wires that lead to the fuse box. I tried to take apart the fuse box to see if I could just pop the wire underneath but gave up. How would a mechanic do the wiring?

My best advice is to put in an in line fuse. You can buy them at wal-mart for less than $8 bucks. Its easy, cheap, and saves your lights.

Im installing a JVC KD - A315 radio in a 2003 alero, when i took out old radio all the wires were cut and turned into speaker wire running all over the place the factory amp is in the back i went ahead...


There may be extra wires you don't need. The basic set of wires on the radio is 4 pairs of colored wires--one black-striped and one plain for each speaker. Yellow is usually accessory power, red is hot, and black is ground. Some additional wires may be one for a power antenna, one for an external amplifyer, and one for facelight (in case it will run on dimmer)
The car should have the following corresponding wires:
Radio 12v--- orange
Radio Ground--- black
Radio Ignition--- yellow
Radio Illumination--- brown
Dimmer--- gray
Power Antenna--- pink (if you have one)
LF Speaker +/- tan - grey
RF Speaker +/- lt green - dk green
LR Speaker +/- brown - yellow
RR Speaker +/- dk. blue- lt. blue

The car or radio could have additional connectors, such as for a subwoofer, CD changer, etc.

I need wiring to install a new radio in my 2001 f-150 acc-battery-ground what are the colors ?


Abbreviations used :
CJB ( aka Central Junction Box, cab fuse panel )
BJB ( aka Battery Junction Box, Engine Compartment fuse panel )

In the factory connector :

Hot at all times from CJB Fuse #1 is pin #9, light green w/ violet stripe wire
Hot in start from CJB Fuse #20 is pin 3, Red w/ black stripe wire
Hot in Accessory or run from CJB Fuse #8 is pin 10, Black w/ Pink stripe wire.

Grounds in the connector :
pin 2, black
pin 11 black w/ light green stripe
pin 16 black w/ light green stripe.
pin #1 light blue w/ red stripe is the instrument illumination, after the cluster dimmer switch.

I would stay away from using the black w/ light green stripe, I seem to recall those are the shields for the speaker pairs.

Bit late on the reply, just caught this one. If you don't have it don't, good luck

2000 S10 4.3L Fuel pump stopped working out of the blue. We Put a new Fuel Pump in, new harnes to fuel pump, new fuel filter, new relay, new fuses in IGN C and ECM B fuses. Still the pump will not turn on....


At the fuel pump relay you should have 1 full time hot wire. 1 hot wire when you turn on the switch. 1 ground, and the other wire goes to the pump. Test the ground to be sure it is good. If so then jump a hot to the one that goes to the pump and see if it runs.If it does then you have a bad relay or ECM. You can swap the relay with another of the same # from tour fuse box to test it.There is also a ground on top of the frame near the filler neck, check it too. Good Luck
