Took of covers to oil speed omitor put some wires came off put back together and no elc. start or break light witch wire is not hooked up or in the wrong place

Sounds like , if the wires were in the wrong place it might have blown a fuse. Check the fuses to see if one is blown out.
If all the fuses are good then you probably need a diagram.
I like to use for diagrams. You could try that.
Hope this helps.

I have a 2005 Toyota sequoia that has an aftermarket visteon intalled in the headliner. Anyone know where the inline fuse might be installed as power to the unit is interrupted?

The easiest way is to check around the battery for after-market wiring. If there's no aftermarket stuff hooked up to the battery, someone may have forgotten to re-hook it back up, and it may have fallen to the side of the battery.

The other option is to actually follow the wire, starting from the Visteon and going back. Look toward the trim around the windshield. The installers were headed for the battery, so head to whichever side your battery is on. Remove the trim for a better look if necessary. OEM harnesses are usually encased in black plastic or tape, so the after market wires should stand out. Follow them to the engine compartment.

Be aware of correct polarity when hooking the wires up! The wire with the fuse in-line will be the positive (+) one.

Hope that helps.

Good luck! :)

How to install jensen 40w+40w a-80

I have one of these new, in the box, with no instructions.

Power Output: 40W/Chan Maximum, 18W/Chan RMS
(20hz-20khz into 4 ohms at less than 1% THD)
Freq. Responce: 20hz-30khz, +/-3dB
Signal to noise ratio: 80dB, A-weighted
Input Sensitivity:
Low Level, 100-500 mV
High Level, 1-5v
Input Impedence:
Low Level, 10k ohms
High Level, 27 ohms
Load Impedence: 4-8 ohms allowable (4-8 ohm speakers)
Power Requirement: 14.4v DC (10.8-15.6 allowable)

As you can see the RMS wattage output of these units is only about 18W maximum.

I am planning on using the amp I have on a low power factory car radio. A low power factory radio output should be somewhere between 6-12 watts rms/channel. I will be using the "High Level" inputs for this. DO NOT connect a radio with a higher output power. If your radio says "High Power", 25W/channel, etc, do not connect to this amp. (exception: you can use the "line out" connectors, if so equipped, See Below). I don't have the connector for the high level input so i don't know what I'll do to hook up to it. I'll probably just run wires out of the amp, in lieu of the connector.

The "Low Level" inputs are for an unamplified, line level signal ("line out" connection of a radio, portable CD player, etc). Do Not connect a greatly amplified signal to these connections.

I don't know much about the "Input Sensitivity" control (pot). I'll be leaving it on "Low" for my initial test.

The grey wires are the right speaker wires and the white wires are the left speaker wires. The grey wire with a black tracer mark is the right speaker positive (+) wire. The white wire with a black tracer is the left speaker positive (+) wire.

The blue/white wire is for attachment to your radio's "Auto Ant" (power antenna) connection (usually a orange wire, I said USUALLY). If you have a power antenna on your car, simply splice into the wire running from your radio to the antenna. This blue/white wire activates a relay in the amp which, in turn, completes the circuit through the yellow (+) power wire (See Below). - Alternative 1: You could run this wire directly to your battery with a switch to turn the amp on. You would need to place an in-line fuse of 2amp. - Alternative 2: You could connect this wire to the accessory fuse in your fuse box. If this is done, again, attach a 2amp in-line fuse for extra protection. (Note: if attached to your fuse box accessory fuse, the amp will be on even if you're not using the radio. You could have a switch here also). These are just suggestions. The most common way to connect the blue/white wire is the "Auto Antenna" wire of your radio.

The large black wire is main Ground (-) for the amp. The large yellow wire is Positive (+) power to the amp. Ideally, these should be connected straight to your battery's (+) and (-) terminals. The yellow wire on your amp should have an integral in-line fuse holder with a 7amp fuse. If not, add one. Of course, the black ground wire could simply be attached under a screw, into the body of the vehicle.

Hope this helps !

I have the 2/1 1000w amp and all the wires are hooked up but the green light wont come on on the amp. My wiring kit says 680 watts is it not providing enough power?

have a look at your earth connection, relocate it to a good place, i put mine in the boot with approx 50cm of wire, it could be the earth is not up to the job? if you can find a nut/bolt undo it a bit and scratch it expose little metal ( cover with nail polish if needed) then put earth connection on it and tighten up, it should work, failing that take the anp out get some decent wire with in line fuse on it and use your remote from stereo make sure its still attached, wire direct to car battery, you've gotta wire from pos to amp and make sure its earthed first though that should tell you if you have a naff amp or if your wiring is rubbish. its worth getting a metre of red and black wire from halfords for this or a decent gauge wire from local carshop

We had a clarion reciever with tape deck in our boat and found another clarion reciever with two new speakers and two good 1996 speakers which had not weathered. The instalation was difficult but the...

As long as you have connected the ground(black) try adding one wire at a time to the live(red). If possible try connection each wire one at a time to the power line and then both together. If nothing has blown(fuses) and the unit starts working then you can try by trial & error method the remaining wires. You should be able to figure out which wire is required and if there are any extra wires like cellular phone(mute) and then decide whether to connect them or keep them open.....sodeep
