It may plug into the distributor cap, by where the red wire with the white connector goes, or it could be a ground strap, from the body to the back of the engine.

I am trying to replace my 2004 Saturn Vue stereo with a stereo that doesn't have a place to put the copper wire. The unit lights up, but no power. It is receiving power as indicated by blinking light...


I just did this on my 03 Vue. That copper wire is your ground. The ground is the black wire on your new stereo. The copper wire has a connector at the end of it, I believe it is a female end. You can get a male end for the black wire and simply plug it into the end of the copper wire. I would then take some electrical tape and wrap it up. I hope that helps.

How to wire a toggle switch for non working horn


My suggestion ask that mechanic to do it for you on the side maybe and see how much he would charge if you don't know anything much about going under the hood that would be best, if not here goes. First find the horn make sure you can get to it there should be a connector or plug on it should being the key word. Find it and remove it, you will need a wire long enough to run from the horn around and through some place in the firewall next to the wall between the engine and inside and back out to the battery so make sure its long enough to do that as well make sure the wire is 2 different colors inside sometimes they come copper on one side and silver color on the other or you can find black and red coated wires an 18 gauge speaker wire should work 15 to 20 ft should be plenty tape the ends of the wires with 8 inches excess hanging to the battery one end and the other to the horn not connected just so it holds the wire while you run it to inside the car string the wire around under the hood so its not all over the engine but around it and not on anything that gets hot to melt it. Make sure you know when you run it inside which side of the bend (you will have to bend it to get it inside the cab) make sure you know which side was going to the battery and which to the horn when you have the wire inside the car cut the wire on the copper side or the red side but dont cut the black shave back the plastic on the cut wire so you can get to the bare wire on the toggle switch any kind with 2 connectors on it is ok or you can also get a push button kind so it works like the horn find the positive connector on it and negative connector, connect the side of the red/copper wire that is going to the battery to the positive side if it has no positive or neg it doesn't matter either side then. Now connect the other side of the spliced wire to the negative or other side of the switch. once this is done under the hood look for positive and negative on the horn strip wire ends so you can get to bare wire connect the red/copper to the pos. and black/silver to the neg. You can use connectors for this or you can twist the wires around the connectors like a twist tie and tape with black electrical tape not clear tape. then on the battery put the red to pos. and black to neg. I would splice off enough plastic coating to wrap wire around battery terminal connector not the post make sure you connect the pos. last and don't touch the neg wire to anything else. then test the horn if it is working unhook the pos. side of the wire on the battery until you get ready for inspection and when done remove this so you don't have battery drain or other problems. Good luck

I bought some halo driving lights for my '03 GMC Sierra 1500, they came with a wiring harness, switch and everything needed for installation except for installation instructions. Help PLEASE!


Tools recommended for this job: wire stripper, wire crimper, volt meter, 4x quick wire connectors, 4x male crimp connectors, 4x female crimp connectors
  1. First, tape the halo and/or LED wires to the back of the headlights to keep them from tangling.
  2. Keep the pairs in order by their color, e.g. black, black (ground) and Red, Red (positive). Note: positive and ground wires might not always be black and red.
  3. Remove some of the plastic shielding at the end of the wires to expose enough copper wire, next twist the copper together to strengthen it.
  4. Shove the twisted copper into a crimp connector; crimp the location where wire and the connector end overlaps, wrap with electrical tape to secure it.
  5. Two extra wires in black and red will be helpful to make the halo/LED wire longer to easier installation. Remove shielding: show copper: use the connectors: connect the positive and ground from the headlights.
  6. Next step, turn the headlights inside the car to the [on] position.
  7. Take the volt meter and connect the negative to the negative on the battery (please use extreme precaution when doing so).
  8. The headlight harness usually will have [3] wires, generally red, black, green (headlights, ground, turn signal). Use the volt meter to test which wire will have power running through it (since the headlight is in the [on] position) which will be the headlight wire.
  9. Use the quick connector to connect the extra wires (red) to the power wire on the harness and black to the ground. This will split the current coming from the harness. Crimp the connectors and use electrical tape to secure it.
  10. Now connect the projector headlight halo wires and the harness from the car.
  11. No wires should be left over unconnected.
  12. The installation is now complete.

How do you install an electronic trailer brake controller in a 1995 GMC Suburban 1500?


a brake controller has 4 wires on it, Black, white, blue,red.

Black is positive battery 12 volts connect to 30 amp circuit breaker to the battery

White goes to good solid ground

red connects to white wire from the brake switch

blue wire connects to 7 way trailer connector at rear of truck. If the truck has trailer package you will find the blue wire and red wires under brake booster taped to the harness you can connect your blue brake control wire to that blue wire. At the rear of the truck the other end of the blue wire will be taped to a harness under the rear of the truck. you will have to now connect the blue wire to the blue input on your 7 way connector

The plug that connects to the alternator has three


Yes the White wire is the reason. It goes to the Internal Regulator.
As you view the connector that plugs into your alternator, look at where the lock tab is.
Lock tab on TOP. The Black wire goes to the Left side. The White wire goes to the Right side.

The Black wire, ties into the Red wire down in the wire loom. (The Red wire goes to the starter solenoid, and this is connected straight to the battery. This is why the Red, AND the Black wire, are both Hot wires)

The White wire goes through the bulkhead wire loom, and to the bulkhead connector.

(Down under the steering shaft, and on the firewall, you'll see a rectangular Black box shape, with a Bunch of wires, coming into it from the engine compartment. The bulkhead connector is two pieces. Following it through the firewall, the other side of it is the fuse panel)

Where the White wire connects in the fuse panel,
it should go straight to the ACC fuse. (Accessory)

Runs good with ecm un-plugged in, but when plugged in runs rough


Static timing should be 10 deg btdc you can check that timing when you disconect the tan/black trace wire there should be a weatherproof connector for this wire near the Left hand inner skirt this wire is called the set timing connector and when disconnected stops the ecm from adjusting the timing.
