Can you be a bit more specific? Are we talking about a vehicle?

If so, given that different vehicles and different model years will be using different wiring configurations - the more specifics you can provide on what mechanism you are trying to fix the be able we will be to answer your question.

SOURCE: engine is getting hot and radiator fan will not

You should have a check engine light on if your coolant temperature sensor is bad. It could be your fan relay. It's position should be located on your fuse box cover(s). To check the fan itself, unplug it and notice that the black (or darkest) wire is the ground, so you can hook your jumper wire to any metal part of the car. The other wire goes to the positive terminal of a car battery. Good luck.

SOURCE: I changed the thermo fan switch but the fan still

yes, it can be the plug, but you can check it with a test light when the engine is hot to see if there is voltage. It might also be the cooling fan relay.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6022358-relay_check . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

SOURCE: brake light switch wires broken

Here is a picture of the brake light switch. Also at this point just buy a new connector and splice it on, much easier.

My 1999 ford escorts cooling fan is not working


These are normally easy to diagnose if you know a little about vehicle maintenance...Check the fan fuse/relay to begin with..Check all connections/wiring to fan...Also it has a sensor..The best way to eliminate if the fan is bad or not is to use simple jumper wires..Disconnect fan motor connector and take two jumper wires..the fan motor should have two connectors..Run one wire to hot battery post and one to negative battery post ..Connect one to hot connector of motor and one to ground..If fan doesn't work fan is faulty..

Why doesnt the cooling fan come on on my 1993 mercury topaz


You just asked about the one circuit that gives this backyard mechanic nightmares(lol).There is a relay to turn fan on, but whether it is controlled by a simple temperature sensor/switch on the engine, or by your ecu (engine's computer) I don't know.
Until you get a definitive answer from one of our experts here, there is a simple test you can do to make sure fan motor is good. Unplug the connector for motor and check for corrosion in the terminals of the connector. Plug it back in. Look on the thermostat housing or just adjacent to it, for a single wire connector. This is the fan sensor/switch. Unplug it and turn key to on. Fan should start. Be careful of fan blades when key is on: It MAY come on any time key is on. If it doen't come on it may be a bad sensor in the switch-supposed to build resistance as coolant temp. increases, then at certain temp. will turn fan on.
So, fan on? Replace that switch you disconnected. Or, still no fan? Plug sensor back in. Turn key off. Unplug the fan motor again, and use jumper wires from battery to fan terminal connector, just long enough to verify if fan works or not. If fan motor is good, there is a problem with the temp. sensor, or the relay (probably located in fuse box by battery), or the associated wiring, or the computer (IF your fan is controlled by the computer). Then you have just inherited my nightmare. But if fan does not work, you have found the problem. Good luck.

    My radiator fan doesn't work. could it be a fuse or should I replace the whole thing?


    it could be a blown fuse,check the fuses in the fuse box under the hood,it also could be the temperature sensor that activates the fan is faulty or it could be a loose wire or a bad connection,the fan should have a connector plug on it so as it can be disconnected if it needs to be replaced pull that connector apart & check for corrosion,if it is a one wire connector run a wire from the positive terminal to the connector, if the fan is OK it will run if it has two wires run another one from the neg . terminal of the batt. check all other connector plugs.....hope this helps.....cheers

    I have a 1997 Mercury Tracer; fan switch not working


    If the blower motor has a problem, check voltage and ground circuit. In the diagram, top wire for blower motor is voltage, the bottom wire is ground. If good voltage and ground, then suspect the blower motor has a problem. You can see the fuse and circuit breaker, not only check them, use a test light and voltage on the circuits. Your blower resistor and control assembly are on the ground circuit, you can bypass those to see if problem on ground circuit? I know I didn't answer your question, but, I don't know what testing you have done?

    Srs light on


    1st you need to either buy or make the "SCS Service Connector" #07PAZ-0010100 from H and A Accesories for $3.51. Use a speaker harness for an older Honda which you can buy at a local stereo shop such as Circuit City or Best Buy, and cut the wires and looped them together. You can also use a paperclip but that will make it a little more difficult because you have to connect it and disconnect it a few times quickly. 2nd you need to find the MES (Memory Erase Signal) connector as pictured below scs_small.jpgsrs_plug_small.jpg
    It is a yellow connector with two wires in it that is plugged into the fuse box, unplug it and pull it down. Once you have done that you can begin the process of erasing the memory. NOTE: This will only reset your SRS System if what caused it to trigger has been fixed, Ex: turning the ignition on with any SRS Plugs disconnected, such as pulling your seat out.

    1st step in erasing the memory is to turn the ignition off and connect the SCS Service connector to the MES Plug.

    2nd Turn Ignition on. SRS indicator light will come on for about 6 seconds then go off.

    3rd Disconnect SCS service connector for MES connector within 4 seconds after SRS indicator light goes off. SRS indicator light will come on again.

    4th Reconnect SCS service connector the MES connector within 4 seconds after SRS light comes on. SRS indicator light will go off.

    5th Disconnect SCS service connector from MES connector within 4 seconds. SRS indicator light will indicate that memory is erased by blinking 2 times.

    6th Turn ignition off, and wait 10 seconds. Start vehicle like normal and light should come on and go out like normal. You have reset your SRS light, congrats.

    If it does not work the first time try it again, the timing has to be perfect. My first time it took me 3 attempts before it worked, but it did work.

    I need a wiring diagram for a 2001 ford f150 trailer hitch plug in. i got a new heavy duty trailer connector and i need to know the color code of the wires


    Hey Bryan

    I've got them for Six and Four wire plugs

    Six wire plugs:

    Horse, stock or utility trailers:
    White = Ground - GD
    Yellow = Left turn/Brake -LT
    Green = Right turn Brake -RT
    Brown = Tail and clearance lights - TM
    Red or Black (not both) = Battery, aux power - A
    Blue = Electric Brakes - S

    Recreational Vehicle: (color, use, plug mark)
    White = Ground - GD
    Yellow = Not used -
    Brown = Right turn Brake - RT
    Green = Tail and clearance lights -TM
    Black = Battery, aux power - A
    Red = Left turn/Brake - LT
    Blue = Electric Brakes - S


    Four wire plugs:
    White = Ground
    Yellow = Left turn/Brake
    Green = Right turn Brake
    Brown = Tail and clearance lights


    Ground should be 10ga.
    Others 14 ga
