SOURCE: need to wire a toggle switch to the horn for it

Assuming you don't have any other problems to deal with like a bad horn relay, you would want to intercept the horn signal wire going up into the steering column and wire that to the switch such that it gets grounded by the switch when you want the horn to honk. Since a toggle switch could be left on for an extended amount of time, I would think a momentary switch of even a push button type might be a better choice?

The horn relay is used to allow for large current flow going to the horn itself without forcing that same amount of current to flow thru the horn switch in the steering wheel for example, which might be easily burnt out without the relay's buffering effects. Even a large macho toggle might not be able to handle a horn's current if used regularly. The load for a raw horn is highly inductive (arcing,sparking) in addition to being a very large current draw of 10 amps or better, both conditions tend to make kindling of everything but the most robust switches. Those switches when you do find them cost the big dollar$.

You might just need a horn relay, they do have a lot of work to do - they are allowed to wear out occasionally considering their use.

SOURCE: HOW DO I WIRE A TOGGLE SWITCH TO REAR DEFROST SWITCH. TOGGLE HAS 3 WIRES DEFROST HAS 6 WIRES?

You should not try to wire the switch to the actual switch harness, instead identity the relay that powers the defrost, because toggle switches are only to switch power on and off to a device.

Electrical problem for the fuel no power


A lot of newer vehicles have a fuel pump cutout switch on the engine. If the engine shuts down for any abnormal reason, it loses oil pressure and one of the things that happens is the fuel pump is cutoff. This is a safety item in case of an accident which shuts off the engine. Check for the oil pressure cutout switch on the engine, which is usually different from the oil pressure gauge or light switch. Can't say exactly where it is, sometimes on the upper rear part of the engine behind intake manifold or on lower side of engine right into the block. The fuel pump run circuit is different from the fuel gauge circuit although they usually run in the same wiring harness if the fuel pump is in the tank. If the pump is not in the tank then the fuel level sender in the tank is probably defective and should be replaced.

cut off switch could still be bad. First my sure gas is getting to the engine....if so then this indicates that fuel system is working properly. Sounds like car may not be firering. Things that could cause this is coil bad, ingnition modual failed or maybe pickup coil."sensor maybe some where..timing out which would indicate timing belt or chain or gears are broke......Keep in mind these are just some things that could cause your problem and gives you ideal what to look for........hope this info helps and good luck....Please rate this post and if you need more help then fill free to contact me and we will try to get ya back on the road......

Fuel pump wiring diagram for 2001 chevy S10


The harness is a dealer part or a scrapyard part. The harness itself for jsut the fuel pump as it is set up by GM- the relay coil has one side hot +12 volts all the time, even when off. The ground side of the coil goes to the 3 bladed oil pressure switch which completes the ground circuit when there is oil pressure This is the tan wire.
There is a wire that comes from the ECU to prime the pump and keep it operating while initially starting. This is usually a white wire.

+12 volts usually is applied at all times at cavity 87 in the relay connector and the wire to the fuel pump is in 87A.

The harness from the dealership will list price at about 2000.00 US, and it will be the entire harness that includes that portion for the fuel pump.

If your pump is not energizing, or not staying energized, the oil pressure switch is likely at fault. By the same token it stays energized all the time unless relay is disconnected.

If you are going to add a switch, the easiest thing to do is gut out an old fuel pump relay and solder to the contact parts and clip the relay coil. This does bypass all auto shutoff. The wire will see some fair current so use 12 gauge or 10 gauge.and keep run as short as possible.

1994 Probe: wont start dash says fuel cutout...


There is a fuel cutout switch located in the trunk. It is often referred to as the inertial fuel cut, as it is designed to trigger in an accident. Sometimes it can trigger at other times, like moving things around in the trunk or a particularly violent pothole etc.

It is located on the wall of the spare tire well, in the bottom of the trunk, and should have a user-operated button or switch on the outside of the housing. Resetting this should fix your problem.

How do i wire engine fans to a toggle switch in the cabin of a 1997 pontiac firebird trans am ws6?


The simplest way would be to run a wire from the positive battery post to your toggle switch. Make sure you put a fuse in it. Then run from the toggle switch back out to the fan. Unplug the factory wiring and plug you wire onto the power feed terminal at the fans. To find that, just use a jumper wire from the battery to each prong on the fan until it turns on. Plug your toggle switch to that prong. Hope this helps.

No power from the fuel pump relay to the fuel tank


MY 93 K1500 BLAZER DID THE SAME THING. I RAN A HOT WIRE FROM THE BATTERY INTO MY CAB TO A TOGGLE SWITCH . AND ANOTHER HOT WIRE TO THE POSITIVE WIRE OF THE FUEL PUMP ON THE OUT SIDE OF THE TANK. NOW YOU DON"T NEED TO GROUND THE FUEL PUMP OR TOGGLE SWITCH OUT. THE FUEL PUMP IS ALL READY GROUNDED. MAKE SURE TO PUT A 20 OR 30 AMP BREAKABLE FUSE IN BETWEEN THE WIRE FROM THE BATTERY AND TOGGLE SWITCH. I DID THIS ABOUT SIX MONTHS AGO AND IT HAS WORKED GREAT EVERY SINCE. JAKE .B

DUAL GAS TANKS: FORD ECON 150 1988 FAMILY VAN


The actual switching of tanks is performed by a solenoid operated valve that is controlled by the toggle switch. The valve or it's solenoid could be getting sticky and not switching over quickly. The switch should also change wire connections to the new tank fuel-level sensor. It's possible that the fuel pump is getting tired and has a problem picking up fuel from the new tank. I assume that the vehicle is using the stock engine-mounted fuel pump.

94 Ford Probe GT Fuel Cutout problem


VERY Probable! You need to get that Probe to a Mechanic and have it Diagnosed. You can also Purchase a Diagnostic tool for the Computer at Any Good Auto Parts Store and Try this yourself! This is Most Definitally a Computer Error Code Problem.
