All corollas from 2002 - 2007 usually use the following color codes.
Blue wire with white strip is (+).
Brown wire is ground.
Cigarette lighter/ Charger:
Grey wire is (+).
White wire with Black strip is ground.
Confirm the voltage with test lamp or multimeter before connecting the wires to the accessories.

Radio frequently just stops broadcasting and eventually comes back on

Peggy, Is the radio actually switching off or do you just loose the radio station. If radio is shutting off, there must be a bad wire/ plug connection, loose plug, or maybe bad ground.
If loosing station, have Arial/antenna connections checked, maybe upgrade to better antenna. Some stations just do not send out a strong signal which can also cause loss of station.

Replaced heater control behind radio, when i put radio back i had no radio 2001 ford windstar

When you took the radio out, you may have pulled the ground wire loose or a power wire. You will have to take the radio back out and try again. Another option is to check the fuse under the dash to see if you blew a fuse. Check the plug at the back of the radio to see if you got it plugged in all the way, I would be hard to plug it in upside down.I think this should resolve your problem. If it don't, write back and we will see if we can come up with anything else. I hope this helps.

2001 suzuki xl7 radio says sys just replaced

if the battery in car goes dead, on a stock car and stock radio, most newer cars, the RADIO bricks.
the Radio dummies UP,
and displays
Pass word
or radio replaced. (means all power lost)
first off you need to stop plugging in things into the cig lighter that was never meant to be.

changer, what charger.?
CELL phone charger (ok)?
or cars battery chargers via CIG (bad idea)
most cars have a 15amp fuse here
if you exceed 15amps it blows, that is what you did.
It is to stop fires, wires burning up. (facts)
here is the math. (parked)
v12x15a = 180watts.
not much , so if you exceed that, the fuse blows.
if engine is running 220watts. max.
other things that blow this fuse are.
space heaters.
120vAC Inverters.
This CIG jack is for chargihg a CELL phone
some cell phone changers can fail and short
and guess what , that is what the fuse is for.
just that event.

the radio needs 2 power feeds, (not counting lamp dimmers)
main power
and memory.

if you brick the radio (asks for secret code to play)
here is 1 online place that helps. to solve that riddle.

Stereo dos not work

first confirm fuse for radio circuit is good, replace if its blown.
If fuse is good, and radio still not working, check power wires and plugs from back of radio to fuse block--check for broken wire, rubbing wire (worn insulation = short in circuit), loose connecting blocks, loose /broken wires in connection blocks. If that all checks out -- got to the nearest wrecker and get a 2nd hand radio OR by an aftermarket radio. OR pay an auto-radio shop to check your radio and maybe the wiring.

Okay so I recently got a 96 ford explorer xlt all wheel drive and I was wondering where the car charger port was if there is any. There is a what I believe to be a cigarette lighter just below the radio...

On most models there was an aux port to the right of the radio, and one in the back around the tailgate. Have you tried a different plug or lighter element to see if the outlet is hot ?

1994 940 Volvo wagon turbo has intermittent electrical problems. Blinker on dash stays lit. Dash lights go out but will come back. Radio stopped working then both radio and CD player stopped working all...

It truly sounds like a loose or faulty/corroded ground wire. Almost 99% of the electrical problems I have experienced with Volvo's are loose wire related. There are a number of ground wires underneath the hood grounding the engine. However my first suspect would be the connections on the alternator and battery.

Hope this helps.

How to replace the battery without reset the radio's code?

A simple way is to take another 12 volt battery and connect it with jumper cables right onto the existing battery connections. Connect positive + to positive and negative - to negative which is parallel wiring. Now remove the connections from the battery you are going to replace without knocking the connections from the donor battery loose. Once you get the new battery installed, simply disconnect the jumper cables. Make sure you connect the cables as described above to keep the voltage at 12 volts and do not connect them in series. Connect them wrong an you will have 24 volts and may damage your electronics. If for some reason you loose the code it is simple to get the code from Honda. Just go to the Honda Owners link below and register your Honda. You will need the VIN # off your car. They will provide the code free of charge.

My charge port in my 2006 cadillac cts repeatedly blows the fuse. How can I fix this?

Does the fuse blow every time you plug something into it? I guess what I'm getting at is it possibly your phone charger only, or does the fuse blow when someone else plugs thier charger in (different charger)? I guess if the fuse blows, no matter what you plug into it, I would suspect the charge port itself. Does it seem like it's loose in it's mounting bracket? You may have to replace the port.
