SOURCE: Need to know where to find wires & wire colors for puddle lights

Personally I'd run my own fused power source to them on a separate wire, and install a switch inside, just in case the extra load, or a short down the road from dirt etc, causes all my running lights to go out, but that's up to you. You can probe into wire harness running back to tail lights, find the one with power only when running lights are on, and splice into that, but like I said, if not done proper & sealed up good after, you could create problems down the road.

SOURCE: reverse light wire code or color?

PLEASE UNDERSTAND that if you mess with any of the lighting on this vehicle it could cause the control module for the lighting system to malfunction and go out and this part the last time I replaced one was$970.00.

I have an 2003 Toyota echo and i want to install a Reverse sensor kit with cam and monitor. but i don't see any wires on my reverse light to tap into. the only light with wires are the brake light.

Best bet is to purchase a spec manual for the make model and year of your car from an auto parts store. they're about $30.00 but worth every cent now and down the road. This is the first question I've answered that wasn't a line of s**t..

What are the wire colors for a 2006 chrysler pacifica tailight harness?

The wire colors should be Yellow, Black, White and Green. Do not cut or splice anything into this harness. Use the trailer lights Tap connector that is already in the harness. It is located in the left frame rail near the rear bumper. The converter is a plug and play operation. No splicing is needed. Simply unplug the harness at the Tap connector and plug the converter T plug in series with the existing harness.

Reverse light wiring diagram

The easy way to find out what was the positive or the negative without knowing the wire color code or without using the tester,,,is.. cut the bulb's line you want to know. Scratch them one by one to the unpainted vehicle's body,,If the wire has built a spark?.. That is the POSITIVE.

I want to tap into the reverse tail light wiring for a surge brake solenioid,

We at not living in the 1960's

You tap into any of today's vehicle circuits, your
asking for unknown problems

Have you considered you said a solenoid,& do you
know the current draw on that solenoid

Best design a new circuit using a relay & control it with
the back up switch ,if the can handle the extra current

Need wiring diagrams,some math & ohm's law there

Subaru forester (2006) radio stopped working - only light static. CD player works fine.

Best guess is the antenna has a broken wire/lead, or somehow got unplugged from the radio. You will have to remove the radio to check antenna wire with Volt/ohm meter.
