Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 1990 corvette, and the tilt steering was real wobbly so I took the steering wheel apart to tighten those bolts. I noticed a plastic piece that has a slot in it , and a plastic football shape piece ,a small contact , and a round long skinny metal piece that has a round ball type on it it also has a groove in the middle of it and a spring that is around it. Put it back together and it would not start.I left those pieces out. Took it back apart and noticed that an orange wire was pinched so I cut it out and stripped the orange wire , noticeing that there was actually two very small wires in it and they both are white,coming from the ignition cylinder lock.Now what would happen if the two wires are backwards, would it sound like it has no fuel, do I need to switched those two wires and it will run once again

if it was me I would go to a salvage yard and get another steering column drop it off at a lock with your key from the old one so they can match that key to the other ignition switch

theres 2 ways too fix that!! one is get some brass shiw stock it comes in a roll get about .005 thick! wrap several layers around the knuckle pin where is goes into the socket and then tigthen it up that will remove the play also you can heat the socket with a torch and then take a hammer and shrink the hole opening but if you call beards salvage in tulsa okla they can and will sell/ship you one

Testimonial: "Good idea about wrapping the pinch bolt. thanks for the confidence boost on using a BFH to beat it tight, I thought it would work."

There may be extra wires you don't need. The basic set of wires on the radio is 4 pairs of colored wires--one black-striped and one plain for each speaker. Yellow is usually accessory power, red is hot, and black is ground. Some additional wires may be one for a power antenna, one for an external amplifyer, and one for facelight (in case it will run on dimmer)
The car should have the following corresponding wires:
Radio 12v--- orange
Radio Ground--- black
Radio Ignition--- yellow
Radio Illumination--- brown
Power Antenna--- pink (if you have one)
LF Speaker +/- tan - grey
RF Speaker +/- lt green - dk green
LR Speaker +/- brown - yellow
RR Speaker +/- dk. blue- lt. blue
The car or radio could have additional connectors, such as for a subwoofer, CD changer, etc.
