Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.

How to wire Phono Jacks/Plugs and Power Supplies.

A, any, MONO Jack/Plug it is always wired the same. There are only 2 wires, one + Plus, Positive. and one, - Negative, ETH, GND. The Minus, GND, ETH, - Negative, always, logically, goes to the or Negative or "Case" ETH, Gnd, those terms all mean the same. Now the + Positive is always Plus,. If the connection is for a Coaxial Cable then, the inner core is Plus +, and the Shield is always - Negative, Gnd, Earth. All Jacks and Plugs wire the same. With a Phono MONO Phono Jack, the "Bulb End" is always Positive, the Case or Outer is - Negative. NOW, IF the Jack/Plug is a STEREO one, then with that type of Plug/Jack there is simply, Two + Plus Wires, and, Two, - Negative, Eth, Wires, these Two, Negatives, Earths all Contact together, and go to the Negative or Outer Connection. The Two + Plus Wires, go, One to each of the tip connection, of the Two Positive Connections, that go to the end, Bulb Tip A & Tip B, of the Stereo Jack./Plug.
For Power Connections the same is generally true, the Centre Conductor is usually Positive, while the other one is - Negative, case, eth gnd.

Why only left turning signal not blinking only when headlights on? green arrow pointing left seen but not blinking. When headlights off, both turning signals work perfectly,

It sounds as though you have a wiring problem around that particular light/signal.

Check the black earth leads to the light and the signal - it may be nothing more than a 'bad earth' due to corrosion where the earth wire connects to metal.

Check the main power wires, too. It should be an easy fix .. make sure the wires are clean and secure

Why does my 1989 ford bantam earth have power instead of earth

made in south africa
what year its either a mazda or ford clone
what work has been done on the car recently
should be all 12 volt negative earth
check the battery cables and terminals
if the negative pole and its lead goes straight to the starter its a positive earth wiring if positive goes to the starter
you have an issue on the earth wires giving you a voltage reading

I need a simple wiring diagram to turn on 40 red leds and 40 green leds on a 9volt battery

Two ways to do it..........

One is a Series circuit, the other is a Parallel circuit.

Of course you can also use a Series/Parallel circuit.

Each LED has a Positive ( + ) connection, and a Negative ( - ) connection.

A) Series circuit:

One side of Switch is connected to Positive ( + ) of the Battery.
The other side goes to the Positive ( + ) of the first LED light.

Then the LED's are connected together in a Series.

Negative of first LED light to Positive of second LED light.
Negative of second LED light to Positive of third LED light.
Negative of third LED light to Positive of Fourth LED light.

And so on, and so on, until you come to No.40 LED light.
It's Negative connects to the Battery.

ONE LED goes bad, and none of them will work.
Old Christmas light strings are set up this way.

B) Parallel Circuit:

Switch to Battery - Positive ( + )
Wire goes from Switch, to 1st LED light's Positive connection ( + )
Then wire from 1st LED positive, to 2nd LED Positive ( + )
Then wire from 2nd LED Positive to 3rd LED Positive.

And so on, and so on, until you reach the 40th LED.

Then wire comes from Negative ( - ) of Battery, to Negative of 1st LED.
Wire from 1st LED to Negative of 2nd LED.
Wire from 2nd LED to Negative of 3rd LED.
Wire from 3rd LED to Negative of 4th LED.

And so on, and so on, until you reach 40th LED.
Wire connects to Negative of 40th LED. Then a wire connects from 40th LED Negative, and goes to Negative of Battery.

Series Circuit;

Over to the Left side you see the Battery symbol. There is no switch in this circuit.

In the Battery symbol, the Longer line represents the Positive pole.
(Positive connection)

Resistors are represented by the squiggly lines. In place of them put your LED lights.

A Switch would go in-between the Battery, and first LED light; on the Positive side.
(ALWAYS put the Switch on the Positive side. Can explain in detail if you need)

[The Top line in the diagram, is the Positive 'wire' ]

Parallel Circuit:

In a Parallel circuit, if one LED light goes out, the rest stay on.

Problem with turn signal when headlight is on

this sounds like a earthing problem , so check the wiring for the head lights, see if any wires are trapped between something, bare wire touching car body , anythingthat doesn't look correct, could also be the indicator lever itself with a problem , but check the headlight wiring first

I have a GULF CAR THAT I AM TRYING TO WIRE FOR LIGHTS head lights brake lights @ tail lights

Ok that's a pretty easy one.. What you need to do is make a wiring harness first.. you require TWO wires for each light... ONE of these wires will be a "Common" IF you have a METAL chassis, then you may use this as the "Other" Wire, the negative, or Earth. All wires are going back to the Battery... Or a connection block nearby... wire all lights, etc, from the POSITIVE of the battery, to the Switch, from the switch to the light.. and then back via the "Common" to NEGATIVE, terminal or Earth.
Simply do each as an individual circuit... use good quality 10 - 20 Amp suitable stranded wire, RED & BLACK, RED for Positive, BLACK, for Negative. use Bulb holders, 20 Amp switches.
Have a FUSE or a Circuit Breaker in EACH circuit wire.. OK, so we wire From Plus on the battery, (Usually we have a multi-terminal insulated connector mounted where we terminate each positive wire, to feed out to each circuit) it then goes from the Positive, to the Fuse/CB, from, the other side of the Fuse/CB, on to the say, a Switch, Terminal, & then, from the other Terminal of the Normally OPEN switch, to one side of the Bulb (Holder) the "Other" side of the Bulb, goes back to the negative or Earth. ALL Earths go together, and are Common. ONLY the Positive or RED is LIVE.
We always switch the Live wire. Brake lights are usually wired in series. Remember one can obtain Dual Filament bulbs, for Indicator and brake lights.
Simply duplicate this for each circuit, and then we tape them all together in a "Harness" and route the harness where-ever is suitable for it to go.
Usually we run a heavy wire from the Plus battery terminal, to our multiway connector for our Positive "Outlet". to connect to the individual circuits.
Draw out a circuit FIRST for EACH light and any switch, and then follow the diagram.

I have a 1990 honda vtr 250 and the headlight wont work i pulled it off and looked at it and there are three wires one goes to the neg side of bat and another to the pos where does the third go?

Motorcycle headlights usually have high and low beam and I would certainly expect a vtr 250 to have that. One wire goes to earth and through earth back to the battery negative. The other two usually connect back through to the dip swith on the handle bars where you switch it from high and low beam and from there back through the wiring loom including the lights on/off switch to the positive side of the battery.

Turn signals don't flash when braking 99 grand marquis

Check all earth wires on all lights.
most lights in cars run in series so if u loose one you loose the other mainly caused by bad earth on globe holders or corrosion where bulb sits.
little sand paper goes a long way.
