I'm a Locksmith.. what kind of car ?? Mist us cars you just change the ignition in the housing... Forgien cars we pick them to the account and push a button and the cylinder is removed and a new one with keys pops right in.
But if you need to replace tge whole housing and it didn't come with a plug on the wires you may have to remove the old one and remove the wires from the plug and wright down what sequence they came out and put them back the same way

Trying to hook up aftermarket stereo with no factory harness. How can I go about wiring my new stereo wires or my replacement harness (with module) to my car's already existing loose stereo wiring??


Hi Daniel

You need to test & label all the loose wires.

Use a multimeter in Ohms mode to place a tickle of electricity to each speaker wire. you should hear each speaker crackle. (Multimeters only use a 9v battery internally)
Label each pair of wires for speakers.
Their color coding may help. Keep the negative & positive wires to the speakers correct so that the speakers all travel in a forward motion together or you will have distortion from one speaker that is out of phase with the others.
You will also have a permanent +12v line and a Ignition Key +12 volt line.
One keeps the station memory etc when the ignition key is off.

Cheers

Color code


Most newer vehicles (yours included) have a lot more contacts than just the three you are talking about. I have a 2001 dodge grand caravan and it has 13 different wires running to the ignition switch. The point here is that you will have to combine several wires on one contact which may or may not do the same things the original switch does which may lead to all sorts of strange problems with the engine, transmission and all the other accessories on the vehicle. The other problem is since you will have more things running on one contact, your new switch may be overloaded and prematurely fail or even start a fire since some of the main feeder wires to the ignition switch may not be fused small enough to prevent overheating the switch. A factory/OEM switch may be more expensive but in the long run will save way more problems than the cheaper switch will. To specifically answer your question, most over-the-counter vehicle service manuals available at any auto parts store or in some libraries have generic wiring diagrams that should show you which wire would go where.

Need to know how to program new ignition switch & cylinder


At you year make and model the factory alarm was just the pellet that disabled starter,the alarm was part of the ignition switch if anything you will need to replace the aftermarket alarm. A repair will cost you more than to replace the unit,You will have to cancel the aftermarket alarm under the dash and restore the ignition wire that is spliced for the alarm relay.

Ran over immobilizer gadget for a 2000 toyota corolla. Now the car won't start what can i do?


2000 its aftermarket two ways remove the alarm and do away with it or find the switch to turn it off its either a small red button you press as you crank to start the engine or its a small micro switch. Better yet remove it. go under the dash you will have to remove the panel to access the relay find where the aftermarket alarm installer spliced into the ignition switch follow the wire colors thhere cut it and restore it back the way it was two colors from ignition will now match there use a but connection or solder the wire back together and wrap electrical tape to protect it from shorting out.or you can just drive it to a shop that know how to repair and remove the alarm you need two person . some one in the car and someone direct the starter by jumping the solenoid to battery with thhe ignition in the on position and someone in the vehicle so it doesnt take off and run you over

There was an old security system in my truck prior to me buying it and ive had it for six months and today i tried to start it and it wouldnt even make a noise turnig the ignition except for the radio and...


is the alarm factory or aftermarket?

If aftermarket - the brain will be under the dash attached somewhere near the steering column.

Look for an 10 or 12 Gauge YELLOW wire that has been cut.

This is your starter wire.

one half goes in one side of the brain, and the other comes out the other side.

either solder or use crimp-connectors to return this yellow wire back to factory.

If you no longer require the alarm - you can do the same for every other wire on the brain.






Here is the color code chart for your vehicle...

Constant 12V+ Red Ignition Switch Harness

Starter Yellow Ignition Switch Harness

Ignition Pink Ignition Switch Harness

Ignition 2 White Ignition Switch Harness

Ignition 3 Brown Ignition Switch Harness

Accessory Orange Ignition Switch Harness (Heat/AC)

Trunk Release Brown Switch or Driver's Kick Panel
