The older Knuckleheads (and flatheads) and early Pans had 5 terminals, but later ones (like yours) had 6 terminals.

You keep saying the BLACK one goes back to the battery, but you haven't told me (I have only been ASSUMING) if it goes to the POSITIVE terminal of the battery, NOT the negative, correct?

IF the BLACK wire is in fact coming from the battery's POSITIVE side, hook it up to the 4 o'clock position - the jumper wire going from this terminal to the one at 1 o'clock IS NEEDED TO FUNCTION PROPERLY!

You stated, "the red is on the one 10:00 and that is going to the circuit breaker underneath the dash the blue is on the one about 1:00 that also is going to the circuit breaker"

Does this mean BOTH the RED and BLUE wires are going to the SAME circuit breaker?
If so, do they BOTH connect at the same circuit breaker terminal stud, or one to one stud (at one end of the circuit breaker), and the other to the other stud (at other end of circuit breaker)?

SOURCE: Wiring for Bosch Hologen Fog Lights? Wiring

Look on the relay for the terminal numbers.
Terminal 30 goes to the battery positive.Red Wire
The two terminal 87 go to the fog lights.Black Wires
Match the color wire with what you have on the relay connection for the rest of the wires.
Terminal 86 should connect to your low beam headlight.
Terminal 85 should go to the fog light switch.
The fog light switch should connect to the terminal 85 and the other terminal on the switch will connect to ground.

Yellow and Green - Lumbar support, Push out
Red and Yellow - Lumbar support, Release in
Yellow and Blue - Side lumbar support, Spread out
Yellow, Should be Yellow and White- Side lumbar support, Close in

Hope this helps. Good Luck!

I have a 2000 Mercury Sable wagon the air conditioner, radio antenna,dash lights and windows do not work. all went out at the same time. what is the problem? could it be a fuse or breaker?

Those are all different circuits, all unrelated, so it definitely is not a circuit breaker which is common to stand-alone circuits, like the power windows which does use a circuit breaker.
I believe it could be a maxi-fuse, one of those large fuses underneath the hood, which act as power distributors going out to many individual circuits. Your ignition switch has one or two of these maxi-fuses that distribute power through the ignition switch. And I believe there may be a maxi-fuse that sends power to the fuse panel.
So check all your fuses under the hood. Pay particular attention to the maxi-fuses. Beyond that, I don't know. A voltmeter or test light would be helpful to check for power at the fuse panel where all the fuses for your inoperable systems are located. With key in the ON position, all the fuses in your fuse panel should have power going to them. The fuse panel is where the fuses for those systems are located, including the circuit breaker for the power windows.

Hey Strech the wires on the switch are as follows,first off it is a four position switch,the red wire is at 10:00 oclock,the blue is at 12:00 oclock,the black is at 5:00 oclock there is no jumper wire of...

First off, without the jumper wire, the ACC position will not function, but I've never used this position anyways.
It is so you can run your tail light without the ignition or headlight, in case you're broke down by the side of the road.

You keep telling me the BLACK wire goes to the battery, but you STILL haven't told me if it goes to the battery POSITIVE (+) or NEGATIVE (-) terminal.
BUT, usually the battery grounds (-) to the frame, rather than up near the switch, so I am going to ASSUME it is the POSITIVE wire to the battery.

That said, look here:

Your BLACK wire will go to the terminal marked HOT

Your RED wire will go to terminal marked IGN ONLY & BRAKE LITE.

Your BLUE wire will go to terminal marked IGN & ALL LITES

If you dont want to run the jumper wire (remember, without it, the ACC position won't work), then just ignore the JUMPER FOR ACCESSORIES.
Again, the ACCESSORIES NO IGN won't function, but this is a position that most people will never use anyways.

This SHOULD give you both IGN and IGN & LITES.

If, by chance, this works backwards, then swap the RED and BLUE wires.

Again, beings as it appears your bike has been rewired in the past with non-standard color codes, I am only able to go with the information you have supplied.

Hey Strech it is me again you are probably tired of me asking questions,but you know your stuff.My ignition is the old type acc,off,ignition,lights but there is only 3 wires going to it a red to the left...

The red one should be a power wire that is connected to the battery and provides power to the accessories --run and start positions. The blue one probably goes down to the starter solenoid to activate the solenoid to spin the starter . Black in an auto system normally indicates an earth wire so if it is connected to the battery it should be on the negative terminal. The old ignition switch never had a lights section as the battery light and dash lights got power from the red wire when the switch is in the run position only.

Does a 1987 gmcjimmy s-15 have a power window relay ot any relays at all cuz my power windows stoped working it runs a 30 amp circut breaker can the circut breaker go bad?

Anything can go bad, but to my knowledge circuit breakers seldom do. If you have a test light, pull the circuit breaker and probe both terminals for a power signal, with the key on. One terminal should show voltage with key on. If not, check the power distribution box for a blown maxi-fuse, or the wiring from that box to your fuse panel.
BTW, no, no relays are in the window circuit. So if the circuit breaker has power to it, put it back in and check for power on the driver's door master switch-one wire on the master should have voltage with key on. If no hot wire to the master switch, check inside the door openings for a broken wire. If you do have one hot wire there. check the power windows ground-the ground wire for the power windows originates at the master switch and goes back into the cabin to a nearby ground. Put one lead of the test light on the hot wire (key on), and probe the ground terminal at the master switch-if your ground is good, the test light will light up. If the ground is lost, no light. Check for a broken ground wire in the door opening, and/or find the ground and see if it is bad. If the master switch has a hot wire and a good ground wire, replace the master switch.

RE: Power windows quit working 1986 Jeep Cherokee Pioneer

Hi Steve,
If you have a test light check each side of the circuit beaker, one end on the battery neg and the other on each terminal of the circuit breaker.
If you don't find one that only has power on one side, get some to try the windows while you check them again, the circuit beaker may only be failing under load.

99 Denali wiring from BCM

The BCM seems to be the source of some of the problems you mention. The red wire connected to terminal F is the power source. The BRN wire connected to terminal D supplies power to the ignition switch. The DK BLU wire connected to terminal C supplies power to the wiper and radio fuses and the power window circuit breaker which probably is the source of the clicking sound in the instrument panel fuse block. Normally, with the ignition switch in START or RUN position power is applied through GAUGES fuse 4 to the instruments (not dash lights) in the cluster. I believe replacement of the BCM will solve most of the problems you describe

My truck died and I believe a circuit breaker has blown. Where are the breakers, please?

Your truck most likely has fuses rather than circuit breakers. If a fuse is blown it will need to be replaced.
Some common areas that fuse boxes are located:
  • Inside the dash butted up against the driver's side door. Open the driver's side door to access it.
  • Underneath the dash on the driver's side.
  • Under the hood near the battery.

Left side of the dash, to the right of the IP fuse block. Its a 25 amp circuit breaker, an aluminum cased breaker. CHECK FOR POWER ON THE SEAT SWITCH "A" TERMINAL AND GROUND ON THE "D" TERMINAL. IF YOU HAVE POWER AND GROUND THE SWITCH IS BAD.
