Speaker wiring diagram for a 08 dodge 2500 truck with 7 speaker infinity


Never have found good wiring diagrams for stereo's. Bought them and color codes didn't match. I have mitchell and alldata at work, they don't match. I wire them in with a volt/ohm meter. I find B+, Then hook ignition the the heater control wire. Ohm out the speakers. Thing is, you have infinity. You'll have to find the amp and cut the speaker wires and patch them there also, first. Just a note.. All speaker wires are twisted/paired wires. Cut the tape back 4 to 6 inches to find them. Another note. The speaker wires from the stereo to the amp will be a set of colors. From the amp to the speakers will be different colors.

Convert battery cables from top post to side mount replacement ends?


If all you are doing is changing to a side post battery, just connect all the positive cables from the old pos post to the new pos holder and all the neg ones to the new neg holder. If you've already cut them all off and not sure where each wire goes, all the reds are positive, all the blacks are neg. To make sure use your continuity meter to test. Connect one meter lead to any good clean metal part on the car and test between each black wire in turn, the neg ones will show a circuit, the pos ones will not.

Wire diagram for chevy 3500 van


When you say charging,do you mean amp reading or volt reading?Amps should rise when first started then drop.Volts should stay close to constant.The small wire going to the alternator to power the regulator in the alternator is just switched power.If the volts fall under 14 after ten minutes you may need to try a replacement alternator.

Gauge showing low output alt only 1yr old wondering if it could be regulator or batt or wiring


if you have access to a digital multimeter, connect the meter (set to volts) across positive and neg. terminal of the battery, should read roughly 12.6 volts, close to 10 volts, battery may be going out, also test the alt output, disconnect neg term and place negative lead to battery neg post and positive lead to neg battery cable (make sure meter is set to amps) should read near the rating, if both those, then you'd want to do a resistance test, (set meter to Ohms) disconnect battery and connect meter neg to either pos cable terminal or where the pos cable connects to the alt and connect positive lead to opposite of neg, should read next to 0, the check resistance of the ground by connecting meter between batt neg cable and body of alt.

Looking for 1996 ford mustang wiring diagram for stereo


things to consider:
Does it have a factory amplifier?
Is the factory harness still present?
Does it still have the speakers present?

You are going to only have a certain amount of wires... If the factory harness is still there you can simply purchase an aftermarket or just look at one in a local store on what wires are what.

you would have your:
gray and gray w/ black
purple and purple w/ black
green and green w/ black
white and white w/ black
these are normally used as an after market clip on harness for that factory wiring. (left front, right front, left rear, right rear)

Obviously your going to have the constant (yellow), ignition (red) and the ground (Black);
so the others would be either a remote (amp or power antenna) usually white with blue strip and dimmer normally orange for the after market harness, and the others will be the speakers.

What you COULD try is using a 9v battery and picking up the wires that are solid and striped and touching them to the 9v battery.

When you find the two that make that speaker make a popping sound you have found that speaker.
Once you have found the speaker that pops, you should be able to take it out and look at the color of the wires to make sure you will have the pos and neg for each speaker correctly set.

You dont want some speakers being in phase while other are out of phase. if so the sound wont be right.

Radio wiring ford xg ute


On new systems, like the one you bought to replace old one: grey and white are front, purple and green are rear. New wires should be labelled or shown on diagram on radio body. Stripes indicate negative side of speaker.

On your old loom: cut back behind plug, and strip wires at ends. Isolate power and grounds, and any that go hot EVER! Now checking just the remaining wires, use a AA or 9-volt battery, and touch pairs of wires to opposite poles of the battery. If you touch two that go to the same speaker, you will hear a slight static sound at that speaker: label these for that speaker, and so on. Once you get the pairs seperated and labelled by speaker location, the negs will be the striped ones, though you may not find they all have stripes. once you pair them, test in both polarity positions, the correct one will sound better right away. Should be able to reach max volume with little buzz or distortion. If not switch pow and neg sides. Hope this helps, TT

1987 S10 Radio plugs cut and gone!! Diagrams?


Blazer: Orange is hot all the time. Ig+ is purple with white tracer, and one of the green ones. Speakers are paired in blues, greens, and then it gets weird, and makes no sense by color. I just take a 9-volt battery, and lightly touch both poles to two wires I know aren't powers or ground, and when you find two that go to the same speaker, and touch the pos. and neg. of the little battery, you will hear a light static at that speaker. THis will tell exactly which speaker you have found wires for. Black is ground of course. Good luck. I like your idea.
