Color code


Most newer vehicles (yours included) have a lot more contacts than just the three you are talking about. I have a 2001 dodge grand caravan and it has 13 different wires running to the ignition switch. The point here is that you will have to combine several wires on one contact which may or may not do the same things the original switch does which may lead to all sorts of strange problems with the engine, transmission and all the other accessories on the vehicle. The other problem is since you will have more things running on one contact, your new switch may be overloaded and prematurely fail or even start a fire since some of the main feeder wires to the ignition switch may not be fused small enough to prevent overheating the switch. A factory/OEM switch may be more expensive but in the long run will save way more problems than the cheaper switch will. To specifically answer your question, most over-the-counter vehicle service manuals available at any auto parts store or in some libraries have generic wiring diagrams that should show you which wire would go where.

How to bypass a cars alarm!


first things first... locate the alarms main module. you may have to remove the kick panel under the steering wheel to find it. next remove the cover to the ignition switch, find out which wire(s) are coming from the ignition switch and going into the alarm system, they will be spliced into the box using usually a quick connector or wire nut. take note of the wires colors coming directly from the ignition switch, remove the wire(s) from the alarm box and set aside... Next locate the wires going FROM the alarm box to wires that correspond to the colors of the ones you disconnected, and connect them together back how it was originally. here is a picture i drew on paint to help understand:825be12.jpg

I hve a 1985 toyota 2wd 22r eng will not start with key but can push start trying to figer out how to put a starter button in it, but need to know the wires i need to hook to the switch, what colors and...


At the back of the ignition barrel ,one wire will always be live and as you turn the key the others will power up but the one that goes to the starter will power uo momentarily and that will be at the final stage of your turn.pick power up from the accessory wire and hook it up to a spring switch and jump that to the starter wire.
