SOURCE: on my 1994 plymouth voyager the 3 wire harness to fuel pump (blue wire) doesn't have 12 volts; should it? fuel pump quit then worked once when hot-wired with 12 volts. fuse and relay is good.

The wire should not be hot until the relay is triggered. The relay does not get triggered until the ignition key is turned on. It will run for 3-5 seconds or until the system pressure it at max.

SOURCE: radio stays on when i

When I turn my truck off the radio stays on. When I open the door it goes off. I consider this normal. It's done this from the day I bought it new.

SOURCE: pcm is not grounding injectors. need a pin diagram and ground location diagram

Ground points are in different locations throughout wiring harness. If you had any work done to engine it is very possible to have missed one of the grounding eyelets during the process of putting things together. Check along wiring harness in any area you can see or reach to try to locate any loose or disconnected ground looks.

SOURCE: fuse number 25 for radio no 12 volts

And key is on when tested? With key on, power should be available at the fuse terminal. If not, something may be wrong in the power distribution block under the hood, maybe a fuse there is out.

Quick fuse check without pulling them out: You need a testlight. Turn key on. Probe the little indents on both ends of top of fuse. A bad fuse will only light the testlight on one side. A good fuse will light on both sides of the fuse. On those circuits that are hot at all times (like the brake circuit), it is the same: bad fuse-only one side lights up. Good fuse-both sides of fuse will light up the testlight.

How do I install radio in a 2000 chevy impala

You need to know how to use a volt/ ohm meter. If you don't . have some one to replace the radio. If you put 12 volts to the wring wire, you cold blow the PCM. Or other computers.

Will not start

The heavy gauge wire (Thicker one) is attached to the battery and carries 12 volts at all times.

The thinner wire carries 12 volts from the ignition switch and when the key is turned from run to start the 12 volts flows through the circuit to activate the starter and causes it to crank.

There are generally a number of other components it flows through first you may need to check...if you have an automatic transmission it needs to flow through the neutral safety switch and may be routed through anti-theft relays as well. They all must be in proper order or positions before the voltage will flow and cause the starter to crank.

I have a 1990 Lumina, my wipers don't work. I have changed the motor and the fuse is good. I would like know what other things I can look for?

Hello! If you have a volt meter, check the following points for +12 volts...At the wiper motor assembly connector...Check Pin A Purple wire...Pin B Dark/Green..
Turn wiper switch to low and measure both pins...Do the same with switch on high...If +12 volts is not present the wiper switch is defective...If +12 volts is present at both switch positions the ground feed to the wiper motor is open...Ground is the Black wire on Pin C...Guru...Saailer

1951 plymouth cranbrook 12 volt system conversion

Purchase a one wire (12 volt) alternator,and install it,and it uses one wire only,the out put wire to the battery from the back of the alternator.Then replace all lamps,and bulbs with 12 volt replacements.Disconnect the voltage regulator completely.The radio,if original,will need a voltage reducer,purchase a coil resister to put in line on the positive input to the radio.This coil resister will reduce the voltage to 7 volts,witch will be fine.The starter will work fine,leave it alone.All dash lights will have to be changed also,to 12 volt bulbs.You can find these replacement parts at any N A P A auto parts store.The resister is a part number irc 13,and the alternator will end in a sw,this means single wire.
