Cd changer connections

Hi, On your Audiovox ACC56 10-Disc CD Changer with a Prestige P-165/P-185 FM Modulator, the wires: black - goes to the body (-) ground (as you correctly posted); Green/white - (with a small filter box) goes to the constant/always on 12V supply such as the + terminal of your battery Orange/White - should be connected to a switched power source such as the accessory terminal of your ignition switch or to the blue or yellow wire of your head unit or car stereo or whatever wire that will have 12V+ only when the head unit or car stereo is switched on. Hope this be of some help to you. Post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

There are three black wires coming out of thefuel pump and sending unit 2 with white lines on a 2000 chevy blazer are they all ground wires

I don't know what you mean because the pump black power and white ground would be much thicker then the fuel gauge sending unit black power and white return. The fact there may be an addtional chassis ground should not be confusing. All you have to do is connect one wire at a time, just as they are now. I don't see how you could get them mixed up? Don't they go to a keyed plug?

Have a Evcon model #GCGD36S21S2A Puppy chewed wired and now compressor won't kick on nor will thermostat turn on. Three wire system but looks like only white wire was hooked up. Nothing when rubbing white...

There will be 2 wires hooked up in order for the system to operate, the color of the wires are not really stanard, allot of installers will use colors of their choice, it usually is yellow and blue, but the only way to know for sure is to remove the thermostat from the wall and see what colors are hooked to the "Y" and "C:" terminals... then make sure that those two colors are connected to the 2 wires that are out in the outdoor unit - air conditioner, at the outdoor unit, it does not matter which color goes to the wires.
example: lets say the outdoor unit has 2 yellow wires, and lets say that the 2 wire that are connected to the "Y" and "C" terminals at the thermostat are yellow and blue, just hook the blue wire to one of the yellow wires that come out of the outdoor section of the air conditioner, then hook the yellow fron the thermostat to the other wire coming out of the air conditioner. All it is doing is energizing a coil in the contactor in the outdoor unit, like a light switch that gives power to the compressor. Now........
If the 2 wires coming from the thermostat were touched together, that would creat a direct short in the 24 volt circuit in the furnace - inside of the house, hopefully the model of furnace or air handle will have a spade type automotive fuse located on the computer board in the furnace, if so this would save the board from shorting out, so look on the board, find the fuse and see if it is blown, if so replace it with a automotive spade fuse of the same type, usually 3 or 5 amp. If there is no fuse it is a good chance that the 24 volt transformer of the board itself is shot - this will require a AC tech.
NOTE: Turn of power to the furnace and the A/C outside, before looking at anything. The thermostat wire to the out door unit is a 24 volt line, this is usually a pencil or smaller sized wire, "Brown" or sometimes "White".
I wish you the best, and hope it helps, I am new to this site, so I am still getting use to it.

My house wires from the electic stove top has 3 wires and my new bosch electric top has 4 on red, white, green, yellow?

hook the red and yellow off the new stove to the two hot phases-then connect the white on the new unit to the neutral power connection and finally the green wire can hook to the same neutral wire also as long as the power comes directly from the main electrical panel in the home, but not a sub-panel

T101 R Clock will not turn

The "Line" is the power source. The "load" is the device that is being powered.

typically the green wire is the ground wire. I strongly urge you to verify your assumption that is is the common wire. If the green is indeed the ground, and it gets hooked up to common, you will be energizing the cabinet of the unit and posing a serious shock hazzard.

Your curcuit will be as follows.

The power source "Line" will have wires going to the timer. (hooked to the "line" terminals on the timer.)the timer then is supplying the power to the pool pump, and we will reffer to it as the "line".

The two black wires from the pump would be hooked up to the "load" side of the timer.

Typically they would be labled line 1 and line 2 or "L1" and "L2"

If yours are not labled so, describe exactly what terminals you have in detail in both the pump and the timer.

Need to connect 3 wires from pole to 2 wires in unit

It sounds like a 120 volt line coming in from the pole. Red is the hot wire, white the common or neutral wire, and the green ground. Hook the red and white to the two main wire lugs in the unit and the green goes to the frame or ground lug that will tie to the frame.

How do I connect a line output converter to my factory head unit

depending on the type of line out converter that you have you simply just take the speaker wires coming from the head unit (you must know the color codes for the wires or you can do the process of elimination by pulling off the door panels and and viewing the colors and matching them at the wire harness behind the head unit). Pull out electric fuse for radio so you dont blow it while hooking up the wires. After you have done that just connect the speaker wires coming out of the head unit to the line out converter this will pre-amp your signal. After you have done that step on the other side of the loc you will have to connect and run rca audio cables to the back of your car to hook into your amplifier. The last step is to splice the power and ground wire coming from the wire harness and connect the radio power wire and loc power wire to the main power wire and then connect the radio ground wire and the loc ground wire to the main ground wire. Test and your done with the loc.

Unit trips circuit breaker when plugged in

On AC current it really makes no difference to the operation of the unit which terminal the wires are connected to as long as the circuit is completed. A reason for the inverted wiring is that there will be a resistance between the hot wire and the control circuit. It makes for a reduced load on the contacts and switches minimizing arching.
