Make sure that the wire is grounded to your frame, or any other unpainted metal surface. if no unpainted surface is available, get some sandpaper, and 2 gold, copper, or silver washers (in order from best connection to worst) from your local hardware store. find a bolt near the amp, that wont make something fall apart. take the bolt out, and sand the paint off underneath it. make sure to get all the paint and primer off. put the 2 washers on the bolt, and put the ground wire between the washers. then tighten the bolt nice and tight. this will give you the best possible ground connection, without running the ground to the neg of the battery. if this still doesnt work, try running the ground to the neg of the battery. if that doesnt work, then you should have your amp looked at. hope this helps

Connect blue wire light ground


I think you have to connect the black to the white if you don't have any other wires.

I am trying to install the light/outlet combo into my 80 year old bathroom. The outlet box only has 1 black wire and 1 white wire which come down from the top of the box...no other wires are available


If the wiring is BX cable (that is, the two wires are inside a flexible metal jacket that looks like a fat coil spring) (you would see the end of the metal jacket inside the box), and the box is metal, then the box is already grounded and you can install a jumper wire from the box to the ground terminal on the outlet. You might have to add a screw to the box. But if you don't have a grounded box, then the right thing to do is to rewire it all the way back to the main panel. On the other hand, if you simply skip the ground wire, the switch and outlet will work but they will be a little more dangerous than before because now you will have what LOOKS like a grounded outlet, but isn't. By the way, you should be using a ground fault protected outlet in a bathroom.
Good luck, be safe.

I am trying to fix a dryer wall outlet but the colors are black white and naked copper I don't know which is neutral and ground. White can u please help


I don't know where you live (what Country) But usually the the bare copper is ground in the USA. or if there is a green it is a ground. The black and whites are where you get your power. I can not nor will I tell you with out being there and having a meter. You should call a local electrician and ask him if white is hot or black is hot. Thats all I can say. I dont want to tell you wrong if someone wired it backwards. Call a qualified electrician. You don't want to mess with electricity if you do not know what you are doing. CALL AN ELECTRICIAN AND ASK

My power outlet stopped working in my 2008 jeep patriot after I plugged in an air compressor


Use a testlight to check for power at the outlet. Clip or hold the black lead of tester to the side of the lighter case, and touch the probe to the very back of the socket(don't touch the sides with probe, or you will blow the fuse.) With key on, testlight should be brightly lit. If no power there, check the ground wire and power wire to the socket.

Neither lighter outlet works on my 01 allero, just bought it used so don't know if and when they did work! Help..need to charge stuff!!


You have options there. First use a test light and probe the center terminal of the outlet. If it has power, check the ground on the socket. If no power, check the fuse. (if you have no diagram, probe all of them and replace any that don't have power at both ends with the key on, and replace any that are blown. the one you are looking for is usually 20 or 25 amp). Your other option is to create a new circuit. To do that, find an open fuse port that only has power with the key on. attach a wire (close to 14 gauge is best) to a spade connector and plug it into the fuse connection that has power. Run that wire to the connector at the rear of the accessory port (lighter housing center post). If you do that, make sure you install an accessory fuse holder in that wire that is rated at 25 amps. I use that method to install additional ports so you don't have to plug in one of those "octopus outlets" in a working power outlet. Only difference is that I also install a new lighter housing into the dash. That requires a new hole in the dash or console and a ground wire to the outside of the housing.

I have a 240 volt air compressor. I have had it wired with a three prong dryer cord wich consists of a white, black and green wire. There is only a place on the compressor for these 3 wires. The problem I...


You are going to have to abandon one of the wires and probably change your outlet to match your cord. I would abandon the red wire. You will have to do this in the breaker panel itself. If you are not familiar or comfortable working in this panel then don`t. If you are then only connect the white and black wires to the breaker that feeds your outlet and your green will be your ground which should already be connected to the ground bar. It is possible that the black and red wires are already connected to the breaker and the white to the neutral bar (this is the way it should have been wired for four wires). If this is the case just remove the white wire and tape it off and don`t use it in your new outlet.

Changing out electical outlet


If this is United States standard wiring, newer homes are REQUIRED to have a 4-wire outlet according to the National Electrical Code. If you own a home with this type outlet configuration, its actually illegal to remove it and convert to the 3-wire configuration. Changing the power cord on the appliance is actually an easier option and less expensive (not to mention, you won't be violating any electrical codes). The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r793520-3_prong_4_prong_power_cord_conversion

The main difference is how the Neutral (White) and Ground (Green) wires are installed. In a 4-wire configuration, the neutral and ground are independent of each other. Make sure you remove any grounding straps on the terminal block between the ground and neutral.

NOTE: A replacement power cord can be purchased at any hardware store for $20 or less. The cost to have a Certified Electrician install a new outlet for you (if they would) will easily exceed that.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
