If they are dual function blubs its easy one goes to ground one to blinker and the other to the brake light. if the blub is not dual function you will need a module to turn them into stop, run ,blink function. there are aftermarket and harley make a module as well.

goodluck, edbiggs

1996. Which color wires go where?

There should have been an instruction sheet in the box with the sensor. If not, you may have to go back to the store and ask for one.
Most sensor brands are different.

Midland 77-118. Three wires coming out of unit red,black,and orange. What is the orange for? Also need manual.

Its like the wiring in your house. That little three prong plug. There are three wires, one black,one white, and one green. The green is a ground wire , the black is neg flow and the white is positive flow. Well the red wire is hot ,the yellow wire is neg flow,and the black is ground. Some times the yellow wire isn't even connected. Look inside your radio and you will only see a red and black wire???you will have to google the radio model as such ( 77-118 owners manual)

98 chevy malibu my alt isnt charging new alt batt test good cut out the fuselink on starter the alt wire runs thru firewall If i run a wire straight to the batt it is putting out 19v any suggestions

Did you check the fuse in the under hood fuse box ? GEN / BATT fuse 10amp . Is your check engine light on ? This is a computer controlled charging system , it should have four wires connected to the alternator . 1 - the heavier wire on the back ,this comes fro the starter - the one with fusible link , you could have checked for battery voltage with voltmeter ! The three other wires in the connector are the orange one ,this comes from the GEN / BATT fuse an should have battery voltage ! The last two come from the PCM - engine computer . The gray wire is the turn on signal from the PCM an the Red wire is the control from PCM ! Charging System Wiring Diagram MOTOR Magazine Article MOTOR Information Systems

Hey Strech thanks again but my bike only has one terminal board and it has 9 places for connections and it bolts behind the coil right behind the back jug

The wiring schematic shows 11 terminals (posts), but 2 aren't used, so 9 sounds about right.
Beings yours is probably mounted vertically, let's say #1 is at the top, and #9 is at the bottom.

#1 should have a VIOLET wire going to the LEFT REAR TURN SIGNAL (disregard all the turn signal info if you're not running turn signals), a BLACK wire going to the LEFT FRONT TURN SIGNAL, and a VIOLET wire going to the EMERGENCY FLASHER SWITCH. THREE WIRES TOTAL

#2 should have a BROWN wire going to the RIGHT REAR TURN SIGNAL, a BLACK wire going to the RIGHT FRONT TURN SIGNAL, and a BROWN wire going to the EMERGENCY FLASHER SWITCH.

#3 should have an ORANGE wire going to the EMERGENCY FLASHER (NOT the flasher switch!), an ORANGE wire going to the DIRECTION SIGNAL FLASHER, an ORANGE wire going to the HORN SWITCH, an ORANGE wire going to the ACCESSORIES CIRCUIT BREAKER, and an ORANGE wire going to the FRONT STOP LIGHT SWITCH (this is a HOT lead, that powers all the above listed)

#4 should have a BLACK wire going to the STARTER BUTTON, and a BLACK wire going to the #3 lug of the STARTER RELAY. TWO WIRES TOTAL

#5 should have a GRAY wire going to the ENGINE STOP SWITCH (kill switch), and a GRAY wire going to the IGNITION CIRCUIT BREAKER.

#6 should have a WHITE wire going to the HEADLIGHT, a WHITE wire going to the HEADLIGHT BEAM SWITCH (dimmer switch), and a WHITE wire, further on connected to a BLACK wire, going to the HIGH BEAM INDICATOR LIGHT.

#7 should have a YELLOW wire going to the HEADLIGHT, and a YELLOW wire going to the HEADLIGHT BEAM SWITCH (dimmer switch)

#8 should have a BLUE wire going to the HEADLIGHT BEAM SWITCH (this is the HOT lead), and a BLUE wire going to the LIGHTING CIRCUIT BREAKER.

#9 (actually #10 on the wiring diagram, #s 9 and 11 are not used) should have a RED wire going to the FRONT STOP LIGHT SWITCH, and a RED wire going to BOTH the RED wire of the STOP LIGHT, AND the REAR STOP LIGHT SWITCH.

Now, for the DISCLAIMER:

Your wiring might have been altered in the past, the colors might not be the same, and it is UP TO YOU to verify where/what the opposite ends of each wire connects to.
Again, the multimeter is handy for this.
Use it in OHM mode to act as a continuity tester.

ANYTIME you are working on the electrical system, ALWAYS disconnect the battery to avoid a short!!!!!

How do i wire red white and yellow rca to an xbox 1 av plug. my av plug has blaack white orange and green wires

In the old school standard AV: Red and White are usually audio channels (Red:Right - White:Left), Yellow is video.

Orange can be coax audio, (both L&R channels in one cable). Before digital (optical) came out, some receivers actually had a coax (orange) jack in the back. Radio Shack sells a splitter if necessary.

In higher resolution systems video is separated into three colored cables: RGB or Red, Green, Blue
called 'component' video. The green cable carries Yellow, the blue cable carries (PB) Blue and the red cable carries Red (PR). And with today's tech, the component signal is carried YCBCR as (digital video.) cf.

Component 'wire colors' are there just to remind us. If your TV has "Component" input. Try green to green, white to yellow and black to red. Orange to audio (splitting L&R if necessary)..

Also, here is a PS3 link that might help:
Good luck !

84 honda shadow front running lights replacement: new running lights have different color codes (red, black & back/white)... which wires go to the existing wires which are: orange, orange/white &...

As the wiring on aftermarket signals is not standardized, you will need to determine which wires are ground, running, and turn respectively. If you can disassemble the signal, the ground will be connected to the outside of the socket, and the other two will be running and turn. If you cannot disassemble the signal, or have access to a multimeter, you can determine which wire is ground by checking continuity between the outer socket and wires. Your stock green wire is the ground, and the orange/white is running light. If when you hook the wires up, your running light is brighter than the turn signal, switch the leads.
Hope this helps.

Hi i am changing the rear end of my 04 harley softail herritage, i have bought new turn signals and tail and stop problem is this.the new turn signals have a green wire each ,one also has a blue...

Get a test light and stick the probe in the connector on the bike and clip the other end to a good ground. Turn on the key and run the turn signals, brake light and running light. Move the probe from hole to hole until you find the turn signal flash, the brake light and the running light. Obviously, the turn signals will flash, the brake light will go on and off when you hit the pedal, and the running light will stay on constantly. the three wires on the brake light are ground, brake and running light. Should be a simple matter to figure out which wires go where from here. If you are using digital lights, i.e. LED lights, the current only flows one way. As an example, if you hook up the turn signals and they don't work, reverse the wires.
