If you want the quick easier way, pull one of the light fuses and wrap the wire around one of the blades of the fuse, then reinsert it.
One side will be constant power, the other will be only when you turn on the switch for lights.
The pic shows you the tail lights. (fuse #9)

You can jump in there and it's worth a shot.

Why this isn't a total solution, one resource I've used many times when it comes to electrical diagrams is http://www.the12volt.com/. They have all the diagrams and "audio experts" there that might be able to tell you specifically the color.

2000 Celica GT AC and dashboard lights & gauges out suddenly (Together)


Here's how it should work: Power for the instrument panel comes from the 7.5A ECU-B fuse in the instrument panel junction box (I/PJB). A WHT/BLK wire from the instrument panel is grounded in that box. The I/PJB also contains a 5A WARNING fuse which is connected to the instrument panel by a RED/YEL wire. The 5A BKUP LAMP fuse supplies power on a RED/BLU wire to the vehicle speed sensor (combination meter) and a LT GRN wire from sensor is connected to the instrument panel. In addition, a LT GRN/RED wire from the instrument panel connects to the ECM. The YEL/GRN and RED/BLU wires from the instrument panel connect to the body ECU. There are three ground wires: two WHT/BLK and one BRN

Most cars have the dash light wire in the wires going to the radio. Did you use a store bought adapter the plugs into the honda wire harness to connect the radio? Idf not you may have the dash light wire grounded with the radio and it's blown the dash light fuse. first unplug the radio. then go though the fuse and find the blown one under the dash fuse panel. Replace the fuse.( if their not uswed up the fuse panel has extra fuses and thier marked as spares). try the dash lights, if their workingyou need to find the wire at the radio and make sure it"s not being connected to ground. You might need to use a test light to look for power and when you find it turn the lights on and off the be shure that you have the right wire. If it's still not working you may need to investagate the dash light dimmer swich that turns the brightness up and down to the dash lights. The overload as the radio was connected possibly wrong can blow this switch instead of blowing the fuse. The swich pries out of the dash and you can test it withthe test light. One wire is ground ones the power from the dash panel fuse coming from the headlight switch and the other is the lights thems selves. This switch it'self lights in the dark, so it has a ground for it's bulb.

Radio wiring code for 1987 mercedes benz 300. With aftermarket radio the windows switch ligths blinks and have no instrument ligths.


Hi, the aftermarket stereo does not use the illumination wire. You must tape that wire off (purple/gray). That wire is either connected to the wrong place or is touching chassis ground and causing your instrument lights to dim.
Connect the stereo's red wire to the car's black/yellow wire; and connect the stereo's yellow wire to the car's red/white wire.

I just replaced my factory stereo in my 2002 honda accord. i have two red wires left over that appear to be my dash lights. i dont know where to connect these two wires to make the dash lights come on when...


I have no idea about the wire that puts out gear position lights. But the one that makes dash be on constantly, is the memory wire for radio. You do need continuous power for radio to remember stored radio stations, audio adjustments and last source selected. Most aftermarket radios have two power cables, red and yellow, one is switched, meaning that it only gets power when vehicle is turned on, and the other one gets electricity constantly.

If it"s an aftermarket radio, orange wires often aren't used, (it's usually for dimming) try it without connecting the orange wire, but be sure not to leave the wire exposed.
