The little wire ends and the plastig plug are available at auto elecy shop just cut and shut resolder new terminal and fit to plug. To stop this problem re occouring i would suggest fitting a relay to the head lights both high and low beam and a relay for any spots seperatly but connected to high beam only. excessive amps has been running thru the switch causing meltdown. Relays will reduce the load to the wires

Wiring harness does not fit from my old deck to my new one

If you meant that you are changing the INDASH set with another model, the wiring harness will not match unless it the same model/make.
Now it is possible to source the harness which fits to some model but other wise you might need to manually STRIP the wires on the harness and connect from the given wires . Since all the connections are available it is only important that the leads are tested to be connected, the +B switched, + continuous, the Ground and then the speakers, front and rear. If amp is used then connected the switched power to the amp.

How do you fix a broken stop switch on a 455 rancher

The stop switch is just a red plastic rocker that connects the earth cut out wire from the ignition unit, to a grouding wire to cut the ignition,it can be changed on the machine, however it is much easier to remove the air filter housing, start by removing the screws, two at the top and two at the bottom, disconnect the earth wire and the earth return wire, the upper wire has a spade conection onto the earthing strip, the lower wire also has a spade conection but just pushes into the red ignition rocker switch,unhook the choke from the carb, once the housing is removed gently pry out the blue choke pull from the housing, once removed pry off the broken rocker switch, this is sprung loaded via the earthing strip, pay close attention to how this is fitted, so as you know where to re fit if ( take a photo with a mobile phone to help with re instalation )now fit the new rocker switch, re install the earthing strip, re fit the choke pull, re assemble the air filter housing onto the back of the carb, re connect the wires.

I want to fit a light and switch into my new workshop. I have a garage type consummer unit fitted and am not sure how to wire in the light.

I answer questions for free.
I know electric wiring.
However I might not understand your problem.
If I do not understand your problem, add a comment with more information and I will respond.

If I understand correctly you want to add a new switch and a new light in your garage.
And you are starting from scratch with no knowledge.
You are starting with a blank wall.

I do not know what a consummer unit is.
Is that a type of light?

Here's a sketch of the project:
We need an electrical receptacle or wall-plug so we can get electricity.
We need to run a cable from the electrical wall-plug to the switch.
This will bring electricity to your switch.
And then we need to run a cable to the light.

Let's talk about how you get electricity from the wall-plug.
The wall plug has a black and white wire connected to each side.
Your cable has a black and white wire.
You connect your black wire with the black side.
Connect white to the white side.

Now run the cable to your switch.
The cable arrives at the switch.
The cable has a black and white wire.
The switch is wired differently than the wall-plug.
On the switch you connect one black wire.
But the white is not connected to switch.

Now we're ready for the cable going to the light.
The cable to the light has a black and white wire.
Connect the black to the switch.
So now you have 2 black wires connected to the switch.
The black wires are on different screws.
And then connect the two white wires together.

So the switch is wired.
Run the cable to your light.
The cable arrives at the light.
The cable still has a black and a white wire.
Your light will have wires -or- it will have screws.

If light has black and white wires, then connect black to black and white to white.

If your switch has screws, then connect black to brass-screw and white to silver-screw.

Repacing old timer with utilitech timer that fits into light switch space. Old timer connected to two (2) wires and your timer has four (4) wires on your switch, Can you tell me how I can make this work??

ON the new timer connect the Blue wire to the wire going to the light. Connect the Black wire to the incoming hot wire. Connect green wire to ground terminal if you have one. The red wire is not used, (wirenut it off) unless you have a 3way switch setup (two or more switches)

Will a 1993 ignition switch housing kit fit an 1986 liberty flhtc?Only difference i can see visually is in the type of key used. not sure of the wiring harness on bike yet,and will it line up?

As long as both switches have the same number of connections, they should work. I think they should have six connections on the switches. Earlier switches had only five and latter switches were electronic with a plug on them.

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.
