If you can not find the problem is, maybe you can wire directly from your fuse box 12v to your radio hot wire, and use your radio switch turn on and off, omit the ignation switch.

1987 corvett both windows went up by themselves now they won't go down I have 12 volts on both wires to the motor is there a relay some where

12 volts when? going up or down? both windows? check the switch. the black wires coming out of the switch is ground. if those have power, then check the ground connection. G201 is near the left side of steering column. the motor should have power on one wire and the other is ground, they just swap to go up or down. I suspect the switch is bad.

My bmw e30,325i box shape doesn't spark at all,i just discovered that the negative terminal wire from the coil is not connected,and i still dont know where it should be it looks like it...

the negative terminal of the battery SHOULD NOT BE connected in the ignition coil. the negative terminal of the ignition coil is connected to the condenser in your distributor.

1. make sure that your spark plug is working. try using other sparkplugs to check.
2. check if your high tension wires are working
3. if numbers 1 and 2 are ok, then just replace your iginition coil.

I changed form a 300 six to a 302 and went to start it up and it turn over about three times and quit but you can jump it at the solenoid it will crank.ihave changed solenoid

check the ignition wire from you solenoid to your ignition in the column they usually have a fusable link since the 302 is harder to turn over than the inline six you probably just blew that fuse or burnt the wire the easiest way to check it is follow ur third wire on ur solenoid its like a 12 or 14 guage wire and check for charring or hopefully for ur sake a fusable link

Converted my bmw e30 325i form auot to manuel

You need to jump the neutral safety switch there was a plug you disconnected in front of the shifter it has either 4 or 6 pins, take the plug you pulled out cut it off of the old gear selector and plug it back in and strip the wires back, the wires are color coded so like colors usually go together. with a 12 volt test light ground the clip to a proper ground, turn the key to the start position hold on start and check for voltage at the wires you previously stripped, let go of key and voltage should stop if voltage is constant you may be on the reverse light circuit, keep looking for voltage that goes on only when key turned to start, when you find it look for the corresponding color ie green /white to green/ black etc, wire the 2 together and starter should crank over, if not try another one. you will also need to wire the reverse light switch from the new trans to this connector. stay away from brown wires as they are grounds on bmw and never hook anything but brown to brown unless you are 100 percent certain it hooks up that way
