Want to replace 1998 ignition with aftermarket one....need to know color codes of each of six wires and where to place them on new switch.....thanks


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

I have a Nissan Pathfinder 2006 I took out the stereo and I want to install my own . the harness connector I cut I need to know what wire is what on the Pathfinder 2006 so I can install my stereo


Reattach the wires and buy a wiring kit you can pick one up at Walmart now or any car part store for about $20. They're color coded and let's you wire up any radio in 5 min. Worth the money and keeps you from shorting out your radio or other circuits.

I haven't cut a radio harness since the early 90s no need to anymore. Good luck

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.

Remote starter disabled not sure where to find switch or how to enable remote start


DID YOU TRY REPLACING THE BATTERY IN THE REMOTE?
IT MAY RESET SYSTEM.
WAS THE REMOTE STARTER FACTORY INSTALLED?OR WAS IT DONE AFTER MARKET?A FACTORY INSTALL SHOULD SHOW PLACEMENT OF SWITCH IN OWNERS MANUAL.(GLOVE-BOX OR ONLINE)
BUT IF I HAD TO GUESS TRY BOTTOM OF STEERING COLLUM,
ATTACHED TO THE WIRING HARNESS BEFORE THE WIRES TRAVEL UP THE COLLUM WOULD BE THE MOST LIKELY PLACE FOR A TAP INTO THE IGNITION CIRCUIT TO BE MADE POST FACTORY.

1994 NISSAN PATHFINDER WONT START I LIKE TO FIND OUT HOW CANT I BY PASS THE MANUFACTURE SECURIETY SYSTEM . BUT I HAVE INSTALLED A AFTER MARKET ALARM AND I HAVE A BRAND NEW STARTER, ALTERNATOR , BATTERY...


First thing you should have done was check and test.NOT REPLACE PARTS.Did you test the battery to determine it needed to go? Had the starter failed to turn the engine over? The Alt supplies current to run the vehicle ,and keep the battery at the proper state of charge. How did you decide on ign wires verus the other ign components? Did it start and run okey ,before you added the after market alarm? If yes, I guess you know where some of the issues are!
