How do you wire a fluorescent light fixture to a two prong wire plug wire?

There is a white wire from one end of fluorescent light and there I see a white and black wire for a plug that you can plug something else into it and there is a black wire for the transformer. There's a green and silver wire for the ground. I pretty much need a schamitic and I'm good

SOURCE: 2004 Expedition Wiring Color Codes

brown would be the parking light hot wire
green / white would be the blinker hot wire
black yes ground ,
but according to the schematics , **** this color combination only applies to the left front

the right front should be :
brown would be the parking light hot wire
black ground , and a white / light blue would be the blinker hot wire

do you need the rear colors ?

brown is parking on both left and right rears
black is ground on both
light green / orange left blinker / stop light hot wire

SOURCE: Wire color scheme for alternator plug.

ok ric , now the tensioner , notice a 15mm bolt head on the tensioner pulley , put a wrench on that 15mm head and turn clockwise , that will unload the tensioner , install your belt according to the belt wrap picture under the hood , release tensioner , and you should be good to go . however ,,,,,
last thing , there are like 5 fuses involved in this circuit , 1.) a 120 amp fuse in the fuse block , left side of engine compartment , 2.) a 60 amp fuse in the same place as #1 , 3.) a 7.5 amp fuse in the relay box - left side of engine compartment , 4.) a 7.5 amp in the left side of dash fuse panel , and 5.) another 7.5 amp fuse in the same panel as #4 . sure is a very well protected circuit ..

good job

SOURCE: need to know how to hard wire ignition module

Ford has substantially altered their 1978-86 electronic ignition test procedure. Due to the sensitive nature of the system and the complexity of the test procedures, it is recommended that you refer to your dealer if you suspect a problem in your 1978-86 electronic ignition system. The system can, of course, be tested by substituting known good components (module, stator, etc.)

This system, which at first appears to be extremely complicated, is actually quite simple to diagnose and repair. Diagnosis does, however, require the use of a voltmeter and an ohmmeter. You will also need several jumper wires with both blade ends and alligator clips.

The symptoms of a defective component within the solid state system are exactly the same as those you would encounter in a conventional system. Some of these symptoms are:
- Hard or no starting - Rough idle - Poor fuel economy - Engine misses while under load or while accelerating
If you suspect a problem in your ignition system, first perform a spark intensity test to pinpoint the problem. Using insulated pliers, hold the end of one of the spark plug leads about 1 / 2 inch; (12.7mm) away from the engine block or other good ground, and crank the engine. If you have a nice, fat spark, then your problem is not in the ignition system. If you have no spark or a very weak spark, then proceed to the following tests.

Tell if you are talking about this ignition system...


Hope this help.

I have a standard 4 flat trailer plug on my truck but my trailer plug is also a 4 flat plug but has two brown wires going to one prong. how do i hook them together to make all my lights on trailer work

The 4-wire flat plugs usually have a white (ground), green (right brake/turn) yellow (left brake/turn) and brown (taillights - left and right). If your brake and turn lights work but the taillights don't, check the plugs (trailer and truck sides) for corrosion, and chek both the trailer and truck wiring harnesses for chafed insulation and bare conductors on the brown wires. Likewiae if the taillights work and the brake/turn lights don't, perform the same checks on those wires. And last but not least, be sure that the white wires (truck and trailer) are grounded well to the truck body and trailer frame.

G6 dome light assembly replacement

This is for the Pontiac G6, 2006 Model year. Remove the Dome Light cover and Lens using a flat screwdriver or fingers, (fingers are best to avoid damage to the plastic). The lighting fixture uses a magnet to attach to the roof. Pull down and detach the fixture, gently as not to damage the roof's fabric. The switch's wiring harness attaches to the fixture by a 4 pin plugged connector. Use a small flat screwdriver to pry the tab up, off of the clip to release the wiring plug from the fixture. Use the reverse order to reinstall after repair. Good luck

Wiring an antique hanging lamp

If I understand your assessment then yes. One wire (black/hot) is interrupted by the switch, and the other (white/neutral) normally passes the switch un-cut. FYI - any chance you get to ground a device should be seized; as this will help reduce shock risks associated with direct faults (wires touching stuff they shouldn't).

Door ajar light stays on when all doors are closed

After long hard research I found the problem to these explorers and f150s etc. Fuse 17 is overloaded with electronics and when the wire that's ran to that circuit gets hot it causes glitches with the electronics. Ford set the harness up to fuse 17 like a outlet with a dozen plugs. You have constant and ignition wires ran off the same circuit. The wires are crossed up in the harness and ocaasionally glitch when overheated. Ford should have designed it better. I found a solution which I created which is a bypass to this problem that Ford designed. First sit in the driver's seat and look to the left of your windhield. you should see a pillar or column in the corner of the vehicle. It's in between the windshield and the driver door. Get a flat head screwdriver and remover the column in the corner. you should see a green harness. Disconnect harness and turn your key forward to make sure your windows work. If they do, good, if not check your fuse. The problem is in the top harness. This is where the short or overload is located. Remove your top console or overhead domelamp fixture in the front of the vehicle. Unhook it completely and remove the center panel where your radio is located. On the back of the radio you should see the radio harness and the wires should be labeled. Unhook the negative battery cable and splice into the "ignition switch wire" on the back of the radio. If not sure you can look it up online "Ford explorer radio wiring diagram." Get a 16 gauge wire or regular speaker wire and twist it to the igntion wire. Secure the bond with duct tape or wire caps so they don't come aloose or touch metal. run the wire to fuse number 28 which should be "radio start". strip a piece of wire on the opposite end that's not connected. The one that's going to fuse 28. Pull fuse 28 out and stick the wire into the outlet where the fuse goes. You will need a test light for this to determine which side is the hot side. Stick the wire into the hot side of the fuse outlet. put fuse back in on top of the wire. The fuse should stuff the wire down into the outlet when inserting it. Hook up the battery cable and twist forward, the radio should come on. If not check fuses or connections. The bottom green harness is where power is ditrubuted to the rest of the electronics in the vehicle. If you look at the harness on the inside you should see prongs or metal looking teeth on the inside. The second prong from the top is what powers the dome lights. test to make sure,put a test light on the second prong with the door open. If it lights up continue to hold it with the door closed and it should go off with your rear dome lamp that should be working. at the bottom of the prongs you should see square holes. stick the test light into the square hole under the prong you tested. It should light up. Get a paper clip or cotter pin and some more speaker wire and bond the wire to the clip or cotter pin by wrapping the wire around it at the end where the loop is located. Once you done that stick the pin or clip into the square hole firmly. On the domelight fixture there is a harness that connects to it that has a black wire,a blue/black wire and two green and yellow wires. Unhook the battery cable again and cut the harness about 4-5 inches and hook the wire that's hooked into the bottom green harness to the blue/black wire on the lamp fixture. hook the black wire up to a good ground on the harness. you can use the top or bottom harness for a good ground. hook up battery cable and open the door and presto!! you should have light. If not check your bulbs and check the metal connectors that the bulbs sit in with your test light to make sure there is continuity there. If you have a sunroof or vanity lamps they can all be hooked up the same way in this bypass procedure. Get some more wire,cotter pins or paper clips and go through the prongs with your test light to hook it all up with this bypass method.

My right headlight (low beam) is out. How do I change the bulb?

Open hood, on left side of vehicle behind the light fixture look for white nylon clips that just lift
Pull up about 1.5" and they come free from the fixture. At this point the entire light assembly can be moved forward. Disconnect the wiring harness and the whole fixture comes out allowing you access to all the bulbs.
Reverse process to reassemble

Have 4 prong trailer plug with 5 wires how to hook up extra wire

The 4 prong plug will have 5 wires attached to it.
The white wire is the ground and is attached to the trailer frame near the front. There will be two brown wires and one goes down each side of the trailer. These wires will have a connection at the side marker lights near the front of the fenders. They will then continue to the tail lights. The light bar in the center is also connected to the brown wire.
The yellow wire at the plug is for the left stoplight and the green is for the right stoplight. One of the wires out of the taillights will be brown and the other wire will not match the color of the harness wire.

Trailer running lights (2004)

You'll have to follow the BROWN wire from the factory connector(with the running lights on of course) to the trailer connector and make sure you are getting power all the way to the two lamp fixtures. If so you've probably got two burned out 1157 bulbs or an inline fuse in the factory harness/ trailer harness.Good Luck, Dana

I changed the towing socket for my caravan.

White is usually for earth wire. The fitter may have just used another white wire for reverse light. use a test light or multimeter to see if you have positive power to the extra white wire while in reverse.
