1999 Mazda millenia Electrical issues

the first thing to do is to remove the wires your sister conected, tape them seperately, these wires are power and ground wires and power the light in the visor mirror , they can not touch, so make sure they are apart and not touching any metal surface, tape them, one at a time.

there must be a blown fuse, did you check all the fuse boxes? there is one inside and one under the hood. start with this .

I have an 89 camaro rs, I am getting power to the red power wire on my radio, but when I turn on the car I get no response and cd radio will not work. Any ideas?

there are two power wires to most radios. usually red and yellow. the red wire provides 12v when the key is turned on and yellow provides a constant 12v. both must have power to turn the radio on. there will be two fuses for the radio also so make sure both fuses are good. the only other thing that will keep the radio from coming on is the ground wire "usually black" that has to be connected to the ground in the factory harness or you can just connect it to any bare metal behind the dash

I just bought a 2006 Toyota Corolla S, and my dash lights and tail lights wont come on. All the other lights work, such as the headlights, break lights, turn signals, four ways, front fog lights and...

the tail light issue could be just bad bulbs, check them with a meter ,, also, check the sockets for power to each contact point,, normally if the brake lights and flashers are working, the tail lights should too,, as far as the dash lights have you installed an after market stereo? If so a common problem is a wrong wire got grounded,The harness from the car to the factory radio has a wire for the dash lights that shows up as ground with the light off. When the lights are on the wire is 12V+. Check to see if you connected the ground from the new stereo to this wire. The radio will work perfect but everytime you turn thr park light on the fuse will blow...and the radio will continue to work. There should be a ground wire in the harness as well, ensure you connect the ground from the new stereo to this wire. there is a 15 amp fuse that blows, check them with a meter rather than by sight

The radio in my 1998 Ford ranger does not turn on. It is not a fuse and it is not the radio (I have tried another one, and it does not turn on eithr). Any ideas?

Then it has to be lacking power or ground. Use a test light to see if there is power at the radio, where it plugs in. If not, all you can do is keep probing the wire back toward the source, and see where the problem is. Or, run a separate power wire. 2. Check your ground wire and connections. Run a separate ground wire.

Dashboard Lights wont turn on

You have wired something wrong. Find a different power wire for your radio. Best to hook a power wire into the fuse box, and have an inline fuse for you radio. And then run a ground wire to your steering column or something.
If it's not that, then you must have pulled a wire off somewhere, and now it's grounding out and blowing your fuse. Have fun. Wiring sucks!

check to see if you have it hooked up right. use a wirer tester and see which is the constant wire and which is the battery wire. the constant wirer is always on and the battery wire is on when you turn your key on. and check to see if your ground is properly connected to a ground spot. if you hear or see a spark then there goes your fuse so be carfull on where you put your wires.
