2004 Chrys Concorde, new utility trailer, tail light converter. Problem: There is output from conv box in yellow wire, when turn signal is on, but when it is connected to the trailer harness, no output...


Your vehicle CANNOT be wired for a trailer without using the converter box. The only vehicles that do not require a converter box are the vehicles that use the stop lamp bulb as a turn signal. Your vehicle is equipped with SEPARATE stop lamp and turn signal bulbs.

To make the converter box work correctly, it must be wired according to the instructions to BOTH the stop lamps AND the turn lamps. The tail (or PARK) lamps DO NOT go through the converter box.
Your trailer uses the SAME bulb for stop and turn - THIS is the reason you need a converter.

The wire color for both your LEFT TURN and your RIGHT TURN are LIGHT GREEN/TAN. Although the wire colors are the same at the bulb sockets, these are SEPARATE circuits and must be wired to the correct wire at the converter box. (LEFT and RIGHT) The converter box will have an INPUT connection for EACH of these.

The wire color for your STOP lamps is WHITE/TAN. The converter box should only have one INPUT wire that connects to this. It doesn't matter which side of the vehicle you connect this wire to. All of the stop lamps are on the same circuit.

The converter will then have only one wire for LEFT turn and stop (usually YELLOW) this is the wire that needs to go to your trailer connector for left turn and stop.
The RIGHT turn and stop will most likely be GREEN coming out of the converter.

Wiring bath fan with Fan/ light combo. Want to operate the features on seperate switches. Have power wire Black/ White/Green. Each switch has own wire Black/White/ Green. In the unit there is a Blue/white...


If I understand correctly you are installing two wall switches.
Your switches are switch1 and switch2
Each switch has 2 brass-colored screws
If you have a double switch, see page bottom
And you are installing a fan/light combo with separate wires for fan and light.

Bare ground wires and green wires connect to each other and to green screw. A ground wire runs from fan/light to switch box where it connects to other bare copper wire and these wires will not be discussed.

Lets work from the fan/light down to the switch.

Blue-wire-fan connects to either brass screw on switch1
White-wire-fan connects to white Neutral (we'll talk about this wire as we go)

Black-wire-light connects to either brass screw on switch2
White-wire-light connects to same Neutral as White-wire-fan.

So you need 3 wires running from fan/light to your switch box.
One wire arrives at switch box and connects to brass screw on switch1
One wire arrives at switch box and connects to brass screw on switch2
One wire is the Neutral wire and it arrives at switch box and connects to other white wires inside switch box. Twist these wires together and cover with wire nut.

Now your white Neutral is connected to other white wires in switch box.
Each switch still needs another wire.

The Hot black wire from breaker box connects to brass screw on both switches

03fdf56.jpg
Pardon the crude drawing.
The switches would actually be located next to each other, but it was easier to draw like this.
Drawing shows 3 wires coming from fan-light to switch box.
The drawing shows the black and white wire arriving from breaker
The drawing does not show how the white wires are joined with a wire nut

If you have a double switch, with 2 switches stacked vertically.
The screw colors can be different.
Double switch could have brass screws on both sides, in which case your Load (fan-light) wires connect on one side of device, and your Hot from breaker connects to other side. It doesn't matter which side, but loads on one side, hot on other side.
Double switch could also have dark screw(s) on one side and brass screws on other side.
In this case, the black Hot from breaker connects to dark-colored screw(s)
And your Load (fan-light) connect to brass colored screws.

If you need more information, or if something is still confusing, answer back.

My digital stream converter box DTX9900 was purchased on 8/7/08


My (otherwise great...) DTX9900 converter box died with these same symptoms. (Units green LED flashes continuously and unit is dead)

Upon inspecting the unit I located a blown electrolytic capacitor on it's power supply board. After replacing the blown capacitor the converter has worked fine. A blown capacitor can be identified visually. The canister's top will be expanded out instead of flat. Just compare all of the caps. Look for any that are not flat on top. Blown caps will usually be discolored. The bad cap in my unit was a 330uf / 16v - 105c value cap. I replaced it with a slightly superior brand 330uf / 25v - 105c cap.

Drive stopped working


I had the same problem - green light on power cord but when plugged in the green light would go off and the hard drive would do nothing. I took it into Geek Squad finally and it turned out that the problem was hard drive casing, which I had to have replaced.
