How to replace battery cables on a 2001 mustang conv 3.8L V6 eng

Firstly, take note of your radio codes then get a small motorcycle battery and make up or buy a jumper plug that goes in your cigar lighter socket, ensuring you have the polarity correct. This will keep any codes alive when you disconnect the main battery. Make sure the ignition key is OUT because the cigar socket won't take any current. Remove the negative cable first. Then the positive. Replace the positive cable from the battery to starter terminal or where ever its fitted. Replace the negative / ground cable ensuring a good clean ground is made. When both cables are properly clipped up as per the original arrangement then reattach the Positive first, then the Neg or ground next. Remove your temporary battery from the cigar socket and with a bit of luck your radio codes should be good. Take your time and check out how difficult it is to reach the starter terminal connection before you start. Some are a bi*ch.

Dead battery even when 2001pt,cruiser is not runing

You haven't given a lot of information to go on and I don't really get what you mean when you say the battery is dead even when the engine isn't running.

Have you had the battery tested? Most any parts store or repair shop can test a battery for you and tell you if it's good, bad, or just needs charging.

If the battery checks out okay poor connections at your battery could be the problem or the cables themselves could be so corroded that they no longer are capable of flowing current. If there is corrosion on your battery terminals that is a place to start. Use baking soda and water to clean the clamps and posts (you'll want to remove them for this), also a wire brush for tough spots.

Does the battery go dead after a few days or overnight? If after a few hours or overnight then something is most likely draining the battery. Do you have to jump start your car after it sits for a few hours? If so then look for dome or glove or trunk lights being left on, brake lights sticking on, aftermarket stereo or alarm wiring issues, or other items staying on after the car is turned off that would drain the battery. Bad door or trunk switches for the dome lights can cause the lights to stay on.

You can test for ignition off draw with the right testers to see if it's within specs. You could also pull the IOD fuse in the block under the hood to see if that stops the battery from going dead overnight.

If it goes dead over the course of several days then a more likely suspect might be the charging system.

But these are all just general ideas. We need more specific information to really hone in on any one area. But the first thing to do is get that battery checked and given a clean bill of health.

How doi install a radio after the original has been stolen and wires ripped out

You will need to buy an install kit even if they did. The back of new Radio's don't have anything but a plug to connect to. So the install kit will be needed to hookup the four {or just two depending on it's already installed options} speakers, the power, and ground. Plus the Antenna cable. They will all be color coded.

For example:

Losing power

I am interpeting this problem as a random drain on the battery judging by the parts you bought.

If you recently used your trailer hitch socket, the drain may originate there in the fixture. If not, you will need to use an Ohmmeter and disconnect both battery cables. With the exception of the memory in the onboard computer, all things turned off should stay off. Radio clock fuse may need to be removed.

This means that the Positive cable should not ground to anything when the key is off. With one end of the meter connected to the Red battery cable and the other end grounded to the frame, you can check for a stuck Relay by unplugging it and observing the effect on the Ohmmeter. Fuses would similarly be checked by removing or using another Ohmmeter on the tangs.

Systematically eliminate circuits until you find the grounded part.

You can get the wiring diagrams and fusebox layouts free at when you register your truck. Another site, has wiring data too.

I hope my solution is helpful.

Which are the 12v wires on my car?i have a 1994 volvo 850 and am lost on where to start wiring my new radio wich wires go the power and wich goes to the speakers?

All the qires on your vehicle are 12volt.
Be careful on that. Seakers don't take voltage.
The red wire is normally the power wire to the radio, it is also bigger than the speaker wires. The Black wire is normally the ground for the radio and is also thicker and must be screwed to something on the dash board that is metal and a good ground Now all that is left are the speaker wires and you just match them to the ones you want.

Need to know the wires to install a deck for 97

Red is power to from ignition to cd deck
Yellow is direct power from battery to cd deck to hold the memory.
Black is ground
Blue is only needed if you are hooking up an amplifier.
I always suggest buying a wire harness quick connect system for $5, then you won't have to cut origional car wiring. If by chance you are taking the original wire route, then go to to find which wires on the car are for what.

I a '83 camry, there are 2 seperate plugs that go into a factory radio.
One for Power/and front speakers, and the other for rear speakers.

Sounds as if you are missing part of the harness for the rear speakers (or it is shoved in the back of the dash unused by the previous install). If there is not an un-cut plug in the dash - your only course of action would be to run your own set of speaker wire to the rear.

See this picture... these are the plugs that should go into your factory radio....

Metra kit 71-1938 will go from your factory wiring directly into your factory radio.
