Can I use halogen plow headlights I was told I need led or it would fry my computer..I have Curtis SNO pro 3000 with older wiring

you have to use the same type of light already in the circuit
If the lights are filament lights (bulbs) then halogen lights will work provided that the wattage is not higher than the existing bulbs
If they are then you will need to reduce the current flow through the circuit by installing relays so that the current is drawn directly from the battery
IF the circuit is not designed for LED lights then you will need to talk with an accredited auto electrician with experience in fitting LED lights so that the circuit is not comprised by the addition of the LED lights

How do you do wire up for a new light in the loft and where do you get connection from

If you have an existing light where you want a new fixture then you can just use those wires. If you do not have power to the loft then you need to connect onto another circuit (wall outlet or a junction box). You need to make sure that the existing circuit that you connect onto can handle another load on it. If you cannot connect in then you need to do a home run to your breaker box. If you do that you need to see if you have an open port for a new circuit breaker. As far as running the conduit and wire that is more than fine to do yourself. As far as the final connections I would not save my money there. Have an electrician come in and do it for you.

Where is the trailer light fuse

The answer to this question depends on several factors such as: Whether the towbar was a factory fitted unit fitted during
pre-delivery, a genuine brand unit or an aftermarket unit & who, where & when it was fitted...
The majority of towbars & the assosiated wiring out there are simply wired in to the rear tail light circuits such as:
  • Trailer stop lights wired to vehicle stop light circuit in eighther of the rear tail lights.
  • Trailer park lights wired to vehicle park light circuit same side as the stop lights, as above.
  • Trailer number plate lights wired to vehicle park light circuit same side, as above.
  • Trailer reverse lights (if fitted) wired to vehicle reverse light circuit same side, as above.
  • Trailer left hand indicator wired to vehicle left hand indicator light circuit
  • Trailer right hand indicator wired to vehicle right hand indicator light circuit.
This means that if fitted in this manner (as the majority are) the corrosponding vehicle light fuse will affect the trailer lights unless the is an inline fuse fitted to each single circuit (which cld be blown). This is very uncommon & wld be a costly way to do it...

In some more modern cars that came from the factory (not the dealership ie. pre-delivery) with the tow bar fitted as standard equipment it is possible that there cld be a sepparate little fuse box or section in the main fuse box (the position of the fuse box/es shld be in your owners manual usually Under the bonnet, under the dash or behind font foot kick panels, & if you dont have an owners manual for your vehicle they are usually available to buy an aftermarket version or these days on the internet & often downloadable for free or @ a small charge).

All the best & I hope this is of some help...

2005 1700 warrior has no power to headlight or dimmer fuse good, new light

Hi, Warren if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, then check your head light bulb socket ground wire for a clean tight connection, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn down solder contacts or loose fit of the bulb base in the socket due to vibration.
3. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
8. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
9. Weak charging alternator/generator.
10. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

Brake pad warning light still on after fitting new pads

did you fit new pad warning wires. If there is a break in the wire the light will stay on. Even if you did fit new wires, the wire could be broken you can check this with a multimeter or battery and bulb. Don't for get any one of them could be broken or damaged and this will put you light on. Could even be a bad connection where your plug-in.

How do i replace a pull cord with light switch

Ok so, L (line) N (Neutral) and E (Earth ground), and no idea what this rose is. I suppose you mean Junction Box when you say JB. You can use the original junction box for the wall switch connector, but the Black and white wires coming from the switch must be disconnected from power to be used, if power is already present in your light's original junction box (which is usually the case when using a pull switch light). Then you connect the white and black wires to your wall switch and use them to break the circuit at the light itself by wiring it between the light and the power lead.

please remember to turn the power off when you are doing this. the extra cable is probably a looped or joined cable. put it in a connector or solder it with tape and leave it behind the light fitting or in the terminal block. connect the same cables up in the active, neutral and earth. like for like. make certain the power is off when you do this.

There is a module that separates the turn signals from the brake lights. A local parts store should have it. It is easy to install, just follow the instructions that come with it.

Wiring a ceiling pull switch

The pull switch can be wired in line at the required position by removing the outer insulation on the cable sufficiently to allow for the intended live conductor to be cut and one end connected the switch in terminal and the other to the out terminal.

Make sure that the cable is not live or connected to the supply in any way while you are working on Please remember to rate this
