Usually modern cars have this wires in the DIN connector of radio slot, battery (yellow wire) & under key (red wire), if you need more power to powering an amplifier or other heavy electrical load you can connect a wire directly to battery positive pole, the negative can be connected directly to car chassis, be sure that the wires used for this last application are at least 4 mm of diameter.

I can't find the fuse for the power windows on a 1998 Lincoln Navigator


All the other windows work ? Not a fuse , one fuse powers all the windows . Test for B+ voltage at the switch an the window regulator would be the proper diagnostic procedure . Do you own a volt meter ? know how to read a wiring diagram ? how to do basic automotive electrical testing . The Faint click you hear is probably a relay , which means the GEM - genaric electronic modual is energizing the window relay . The windows are computer controlled .

The GEM will activate the OTD Relay until one of the following conditions is met:
  • The LF regulator control switch is pushed to the UP position.
  • The LF regulator control switch is released (OFF position) and then moved to the down position (first detent) or one touch down (OTD) position (second detent).
  • Seven seconds have elapsed since the OTD was initiated.
  • A window regulator electric drive stall condition is detected on the one touch down sense line inputs.
The UP window operation is not controlled by the GEM. The feature is activated when the delayed accessory is active and the LF window regulator control switch is pressed to the UP position. The switch provides delayed accessory power to one side of the motor and ground to the other side through the one touch down relay. The one touch down relay is not active when the LF regulator control switch is in the UP position.
Passenger windows may be raised or lowered using the LF master control switches or the appropriate passenger window switch. Passenger window switches receive power when the delayed accessory relay is active and the LF remote lock-out switch is in the UNLOCK position. When in the LOCK-OUT position, the passenger windows are deactivated.
The GEM controls manual down and auto down window movement with the down window relay. The relay is activated by applying ground directly to one side of the down window relay coil, and deactivated by removing the ground signal.
The delayed accessory relay provides power for the operation of the power windows and the power moon roof. The delayed accessory feature is active when the ignition switch is in the RUN or the ACC position, or when the ignition switch is changed from RUN or ACC to the OFF/LOCK position and the LF and RF doors are closed.
The GEM will deactivate the delayed accessory feature when:
  • the LF door is ajar and the ignition switch is in the OFF/LOCK or KEY-OUT position.
  • the RF door is ajar and the ignition switch is in the OFF/LOCK or KEY-OUT position.
  • 10 minutes have elapsed since the ignition switch was changed from ACC or RUN to the OFF/LOCK position.
Feature inputs:
  • LF door open warning switch (open circuit with door closed, grounded with door ajar).
  • RF door open warning switch (open circuit with door closed, grounded with door ajar).
  • Ignition switch RUN position (battery potential on both the RUN and RUN/ACC inputs).
  • Ignition switch ACC position (battery potential on the RUN/ACC input).
  • Ignition switch OFF/LOCK position (absence of battery potential on the RUN, RUN/ACC, and START inputs).

2005 ford escape wiper and washer has no power. cant hear it engage when on but was working a week ago. how can i troubleshoot it and find the fuse


Hi Justin , Do you know what a SJB - smart junction box is and where it is located on you escape ?
Windshield Wiper Operation
The smart junction box (SJB) supplies power to the multifunction switch from the SJB fuse 25 (20A) when the ignition switch is in the ON or ACC position. The multifunction switch supplies power to the windshield wiper motor for the HIGH or LOW/INTERMITTENT input, depending on the multifunction switch position selected. The SJB also supplies power directly to the windshield wiper motor from fuse 25 (20A) when the ignition switch is in the ON or ACC position for RUN/PARK operation. When the multifunction switch is in the LOW, HIGH, or INTERMITTENT position, power is supplied to the windshield wiper motor, which moves the wipers off the park position. Once the wipers are off the park position, an internal switch in the windshield wiper motor switches to the run/park position which directs power to the wiper switch then back to the wiper motor. This maintains power to the windshield wiper motor to complete the wipe cycle. When the cycle is complete, the internal switch in the windshield wiper motor switches back to the park position. If the multifunction switch is in the LOW or HIGH position, power is supplied from the multifunction switch and another wipe cycle starts. If the multifunction switch is in the INTERMITTENT position, the windshield wipers remain parked until the internal relay in the multifunction switch supplies power to the windshield wiper motor. The internal relay supplies power after a time delay that is determined by the 1 of 9 intermittent switch settings.

99 neon dome light wire diagram


Hooked all wires up right??? Fuse is fine??? Somehow, I do not think this is the case. I wish I had a dollar for every time I have seen this happen....I would be a VERY rich man!

You do not need a dome lamp diagram. You need to replace Fuse #13 (10 Amp) in the Power Distribution Center in the engine compartment. This will make the power return to the PINK wire and get your dome lamps working.

The only way that the RED/WHITE wire is going to have power with the ignition switch off is if either the ignition switch is shorted to power or the RED/WHITE wire got hot enough to melt the insulation in the wire harness and short to another B+ wire. This wire is supposed to have power when the ignition switch is in the RUN and ACC positions. Make sure it is in the OFF position. If this wire still has power, then YES, you probably smoked the wiring harness. If this is the case, the dash should be removed so that full access to the wiring harness can be achieved, allowing a full inspection/repair of ALL of the damage (there are most likely several other wires in the harness that have also been damaged).

98 expedition cranks when no one is in the vehicle and no keys are in the ignition


Hello, Start by looking under the hood at the starter Relay. Unplug the small wires and your starter should stop spinning. If it does not, then the Relay is bad. If it does not spin continue with the following steps.

You need to put a test gauge on the small wire you removed from the starter relay. You can test with a light or with a Voltmeter. Either way, your goal is to kill the current in this small wire. The small wire gets its power from a series of switches. The Ignition switch can be bad and may be providing full-time power.

Before you replace the Ignition switch, look under the Drivers' dash and see at the top of the brake pedal for another switch. These get hit and broken by feet all of the time. If the switch appears broken or out of place in its holder, correct that problem and observe if the test device shows no power to the small starter Relay wire.

You have diagnosed or fixed the problem and avoided pulling out a good Ignition switch. If the problem is still there, then you need to try a new Ignition switch. You will need to remove the plastic steering column cover and position the Ignition core to either ACC or RUN position to remove the key core. Remember to press under the switch to release a spring-loaded pin.

While you are attempting to remove the Ignition, the Battery will need to be disconnected several times. This is because the Interlocks need power to allow the key to turn, but you do not want full-time power while you have the key in ACC or RUN position.

I hope my Solution is very helpful to you. You should be able to repair your problem with what I have given you.

1997 Nissan Serena car stereo on but engine is not on, no keys in ignition


The stereo should only really come on when the key is at least in the ACC position. If it was like this before and now bypasses this position, I would say that the ACC contacts in the switch have failed in the closed position, There would not normally be a relay for that purpose. If it was like that before, the radio power has been taken from the wrong power supply and you need to find the ACC wire coming off the ignition switch.

My c.d. player in my car resets all the settings every time i turn the car off


By the sounds of this one you have no permanent live feed to the unit. When you switch the ignition off you cut the power to the unit which should have a constant live feed to retain memory.
This is normally fed via the ACC position. If you do not have the ACC position available, then be sure to set the Auto Off function. The unit will shut off completely and automatically in the set time after the unit is turned off, which prevents battery drain. I f you do not set the Auto Off function, press and hold (SOURCE/OFF) until the display disappears each time you tum the ignition off.
(Rear of unit multi-plug) RED is 12V + to ACC Cable YELLOW is 12V + to constant live Cable BLACK is - Ground Cable
Good Luck with it.

Im not sure about power wire red black ground and yellow not sure?


Connect black to earth or battery negative.
Connect red to battery positive or the acc lead from your ignition switch. If connected to acc the unit will power down when the vehicle is switched off. If connected to battery positive it will remain on irrespective of ignition switch position.
Connect yellow to battery positive for memory power. The moment this lead loses power all the settings/memory on the unit will be lost.
