It is usually red, but don't go by the color, look at the battery, it has marks on it, and the positive cables will go to a box with fuses, links, never touches ground metal, the negative always goes to something metal, ground. The positive could have a yellow stripe, if the other one is all black, it cold be the hot one. If the battery is new and you don't know which way it goes because of the wires, you can test the cables with an ohm meter, don't touch the battery, don't even put it in the car, put the meter on ohm, put one end on the cable and touch the other end to bare metal, if it goes to 0, that is ground, if it doesn't move, it is pos. You can test the pos the same way, put one end on the cable and the other in the fuse box, somewhere you can find a hot wire in a dead car, don't touch the ohm meter to any voltage or you can throw it in the garbage can. Kind of hard to explain. If I was there, I could spot in a second. Hope this helps.

Need wire color diagram


Black = AC hot
Red = switched AC hot
Yellow = AC hot from a another source - another control panel as an example.
White = neutral
red w/white tracer = switched neutral
Green or green w/ yellow tracer = ground/earth ground
blue = DC voltage, ie, 12vdc, 24vdc
white w/blue tracer = dc common
Brown = AC 3 pahse - phase A
Orange = AC 3 pahse - phase B
Yellow = AC 3 Phase - phase C
shileds: think of current loops
2 cond
clear or red = +
black = -(neg)
3 cond
red = power (24vdc typically for transducers)
clear = + (signal output)
black = - (signal common)
Hope this helps, oh, and any panel I have design and wired this way is easily understaood by 99% of all service and electrical people I have worked with.

Where is the fuel pump relay switch?


it is located under the dash on the drivers side, it has seven terminals and is refered to as the main fuel injection relay. if you want to test the pump, use a paperclip to jumper the black with yellow tracer and the yellow with black tracer wires together, the pump should run. in some models of accords they used a solid yellow wire in place of the yellow/black wire. good luck. thanks to Jason, please rate my response and research!! good luck

I puled off my old alternator and forgot to put


So, you have an integral regulator on your alternator.... so you have to connect the output of the regulator to your battery. You also have to connect between the regulator and the alternator. Hmmmmm how to describe....
using your descriptions of wires and prongs.....
Connect Wire Color to Prong

Yellow (w/wht dot) A+
White (w/blk tracer) STA
Black (w/orange tracer) Bat (alt output)
Ground wire Grd
Orange (w/Lt.Blue) F (field)
If battery was connected, the Black with orange tracer wire would have +12 Volts on it at all times

No power to radio but fuse is ok


You will need to remove your radio to check this. They have 2 different radios for your vehicle. When you pull out your radio that is how you will tell. One will have 16 pins in the plug for the radio or it will have 7 pins for the plug in the radio. If you have the radio with the 16 pin connector the your power wires are pin # 7 a yellow with a green tracer wire and pin # 16 an orange with a black tracer. Your ground will be pin # 8 a black with a green tracer wire. If you have the 7 pin connector then your power wires are pin 1 a orange with a black tracer and pin # 3 a yellow with a green wire. Your grounds will be pin # 2 a black with ayellow tracer and pin # 6 a black wire with a green tracer if you have all of that then the radio has probably failed.
