Jumped starter terminals 30/87, starter works but no crank when key turned on.


Click no start is typically a bad battery, bad starter, bad solenoid or loose dirty battery connections. But seems you have covered those items. Have you checked you negative battery cable where it attaches to the frame and motor? Use multi meter and check from positive of battery to the motor(block) for 12 volts. Also do this while turning key to start position. If voltage drops out when doing this double check battery voltage and all connections. If it does not drop then check the solenoid wire coming from ignition. When key in start position you should have a good twelve volts. If you you do then test the main leads hooked to solenoid for power. If solenoid wire from ignition has less than 12 volts double check connections at battery and also test the clutch pedal switch.

How can i hook up a car stereo in the garage without using a car battery, and get the same juice as far as wattage and power???


Wire a 12 volt AC adapter to it. Connect the power to the positive wire, & the ground to the negative wire. If it's a low power unit a 1 amp adapter will work. If it's a high powered unit you might need a 12 volt 5-10 amp adapter designed for monitors, TVs, monitors, & some laptops. Beware some laptop AC adapters can be 16-36 volts. Make sure you use a 12 volt one, & know which wire is positive, or you'll burn it out.

I connect the acc wire to 12 volt and stereo stays on all the time


The accessory wire is suppose to be hooked up to your ignition wire and not a constant 12 volt power source. Hooking it up to your ignition wire will only give the stereo power when your key is in the accessory position or in the running position. The constant power source that you mostly connected to is meant for the memory wire on your stereo which will allows it to save your setting when you turn the vehicle off and your stereo kicks off. Otherwise you will end up setting the clock and adjusting your EQ every time you turn it on.

Radio and cd player do not work on my 95 bronco...should i replace it or try something to test it?


i would test it even if you go with an aftermarket radio you will have to have all your power and grounds.to test it simply pull the radio out to get the the wires.The red wire is a 12 volt ignition when the key is turned on it sends 12 volts to turn the radio on,the yellow wire is 12 volt constant it should always have power on it.,and finally the black wire is your ground the easy way to test the ground is to simply take a test light and hook it onto the positive post of your battery prob the wire and make sure it lights up.To check for power just do the opposite hook the lead on the light to the ground post on the battery.you may have to have a wire ( a jumper wire) to use to hook in between the battery and the test lead on your light.

I have a"performance technique ICBM-9774" does anyone know how I would hook it up in a motor home for my aunt? There are just a positive and negative coming from the wall and im not sure where to hook


This looks like a job for Superman or maybe you! Connect an alligator clip test wire to the chassis of the unit for a good ground. Get a 12 volt battery and hook the other end of this ground wire to its negative pole (-). Hook a second wire to the positive pole of the battery. Put that modular plug back in the unit making sure that all the wires coming out of it are separated. Then, trying the THICKER RED wires first touch each to the positive (+) wire from the battery. When the panel light of the unit is on...you got it! The thinner wires are mostly for the speakers with black for negative an red for positive...the antenna is anybody's guess!

Need to know where the positive wires that connect to the battery of a '95 Toyota previa connect.


Hi

The black wire will be connected to the body or engine of the van and the red or positive wire is connected to your starter motor.
You can also use a 12 volt battery light to check the negative or positive wires.
You take the 12 volt battery light and place the negative black wire clip to an earth on the vehicle, then when you touch the tip of the 12 volt battery light onto a positive wire the light will light up.
Then you will know which wires are negative or positive sometimes the key has to be on for some wires to work.

06 Liberty light switch wiring


You usually have 2 wires off the brake switch.
With a test light you should have 12 volts (test light lit) on one wire.
The other wire will have 12 Volts or light the test light when you step on the brake pedal.
If there more than 2 wires, just check which wire has 12 volts when you step on the brake pedal.
