Yup check the fuses and the turn on wire ... usually if you knocked 1 wire ya got 2 ... the amp turn on would be a guess

    you need a simple test light to check the power at the amp

    use the amp as the ground and test your turn on and battery

    we can go from there

02Ford Taurus windows windshield wipers locks wont work

Sounds like the wire you used for power was oon the circut for all those other things, or if you pulled the fuse box down to hook radio up through the fuse box, you may have grounded out some wires, or knocked them loose. Use a test light or voltmeter and make sure you have power at the fuse box for wiper,dashlight, trunk release, door lock fuses.

Cutler hammer 60 amp non-fusible disconnect... looking for instructions or a diagram to install

You connect the two hot wires from your power source to the two lugs in the. On the other side of the disconnect you connect the two hot wires to the A/C unit to the other two lugs. You tie the neutral wires (white) together and insulate them. You ground the ground wire to the box and run a ground wire to the AC unit.

So, you should have a red, black white and ground wire on the supply side to your disconnect. The red and black are your hots from your main box to the disconnect. They go on one side of the disconnect. The units red and black go ont other side. You connect the neutrals and ground it and you are in business.

Don't guess, because you are fooling with 220 Volts AC which will knock you silly.

After i put a new radio in it plus no interor lights the left back window wont come down

Go back thru & recheck your wiring - sounds like something got knocked loose/disconnected when the stereo was installed. If that's not it - check your fuse box or any relay switches connected to the power windows.

2005 Kia Spectra - brake lights on tail lights are not working but the brake light above the hatch is working. Have checked fuses. Any ideas?

Check around in that trunk for loose wires. Especially a grounding wire at the taillights. Sometimes in our hurry to shove stuff in the trunk it's possible to disconnect, or cut a wire... If you've got the 'cyclops" light working on the hatch, then there's power back there, just look around and I'm sure you locate a loose or damaged wire... trace them back from the taillights and look close for cuts, frays, damage, loose connection..

My break lights will not work @ all, signals , nor will the back up lights. I checked the fuse box & the fuse are ok. what should I do?

check for a loose,coroded or broken ground wire.look for a black wire located in the wireing harness(trunk) that connects to the body or chassis.if you can't find it, connect a new ground with a trailer snap a length of wire next to the black ground wire and snap the two together in the trailer connector.take the new ground wire and connect it to metal somewhere in your try your lights, they should work. if they don't, rub the bare end of the wire on an area that has no paint.check your ground wire from the battery to the body only if you don't have front lights working .

No fuse for trunk relase in coresonding slot- just a loose red wire

the red wire you have it maybe some one had a amp in the car and took it out.stop by a radio shack and show the the wire and see what they say.

Trunk pull Down Motor Suddenly stopped working

did it quit making the noise when you lightly push down on the trunk? most people slam these trunks and your not suppose to you are only to put light pressure on them and they pull it closed theirself.. you might check your relays under the hood and look in the box lid to see which one it is.. if this is not the problem you might have to replace the motor to the latch .. you might check with a test light to see if there is power to the motor first though .. thanks and holler if you have more Jerry .

Amp just abruptly stopped working (Pioneer GM-5300T)

Apart from the external DC power fuse (I hope you have one in-line), the majority of in-car amps have 2 mini fuses inside the unit to protect the output MOSFETs from overloading due to incorrect speaker connections, ie, if the output impedence is rated at 4ohms, anything less than that is considered to be a short circuit, and will overload the MOSFETs. After performing the tests suggested by KaeZoo, open the unit and look for printed markings on the circuit board, something like F1, F2, the fuses may not look like conventional fuses.
