SOURCE: re sent wire diagram gat all messed up

Hi
have we spoke before in previous post?
the red can go to any 12v live peramanent such as wire to clock or other item that has power with ignition off and the same with the yellow if your putting these to the same permanent live say from clock you can join these to together red/yellow to red on clock
the black can go to any metal or neg wire.
This should then have your device working the only problem im looking at for you now is the pink wire as this stops you using the device whilst driving as it goes to handbrake but i need to find out if its live or negative.
You could just wire the red/yellow to live and black to earth then see if it switches on and works if not then let me know and ill see about the pink wire ok
Makes sure you use inline fuses on the live wires so as not to short the device out.
Make sure you know what is permanent live to put the yellow/red wire to.
It doesnt need to be ignition it only says this so you cant use it with ignition off but you can wire it into any live feed from clock or switches so its up to you what to wire it to its just the pink wire im concerned about.

PINK: does it tell you to put it to live or earth on handbrake switch?

let me know ok

SOURCE: c.b.radio-power won't come on.(red & black wire show short!)

Hi,
The fault is probably at either end. Yes, it could have been reversed, but most radios are easily protected against this.

If you are getting no lights or anything when keying mic, then there may be an inline fuse along the cable. As you are getting continuity, open the case up, and look for any evidence of heat at the components nearest the power supply - particularly the protection diodes - Black cylinrical components with a silver band.

You really need a meter or scope to go in much further, and check supply voltages between components and -ve, and downloading a copy of the circuit diagram will help this.

The other main fault is usually the output power transistor - which needs a sink for all the power getting thrown at it. If you remove the antenna, it can quickly overheat and fail.
Both components can be checked in-situ for voltage (or not) but the output can only be tested with a scope.

Of course - the "on" light could have blown, so may be functioning without indications, - but I doubt it.

Also check Mic outputs on the plug to make sure that is working. Some units won't function if this is disconnected.

SOURCE: Help - I am trying to install a honeywell RLV4300A

You will have to have schematics from the old wiring diagram. Then you will have to confirm its consistency with actual old wiring before you can be sure that the wires run to the proper places on the old heater and a/c system. This sounds like a gas furnace and is simpler than a heatpump. Once you know what distinguishes the wires with the same color, you should label them and then you may call them a different color if they were wired with wrong wire colors. You may be in luck if you go to the furnace control box an look at the terminals.. They are usually labeled with a R for Red and W for white and Bl for Blue and B or Black. If you have other colors on these then it sounds that it was wired with wire spare wire by someone who knew what they were doing but neglected to leave a path for someone else follow.
You may be able to use a continuity tester of circuit tester to id these wires that are in question...
ie, once indintified, you can match with the requirements of the new stat.

Your truck may have had the factory trailer tow package, but that did not come with a wiring connector in that year. There should be a wire harness under the rear of the truck near the center of the bumper with 7 wires of the following colors/characteristics -

Red/Orange - +12V Battery (Thick Wire) From fuse #8 (40A)
Black/Orange - Tail Markers (Thick Wire)
Light Blue - Trailer Brakes (Thick Wire)
Violet/Black - Backup Lights (Thin Wire)
Dark Green/Red - Left Stop/Turn - (Thin Wire)
Brown/Red - Right Stop/Turn - (Thin Wire)
Black - Ground - (Thick Wire)



Under the dash, the brake controller wiring should be -

Red/Orange - +12V Battery (Thick Wire) From fuse #8 (40A)
Black/Orange - Ground - (Thick Wire)
Light Blue - Trailer Brakes (Thick Wire)
White/Tan - Brake Light sense - (Thin Wire)

Hope this helps.

I am trying to install a Pass & Seymour Harmony fan speed control switch. It has 2 red wires and 1 black. I hooked up the power to the red line and the black leading to the wiring for the fan. No...


Are you wiring for 3-way or single pole?
In other words, are you using 1 switch (single-pole) or 2 switches (3-way)
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Pass-and-seymour-3-way-3-speed-fan-control.pdf

Before installing device, separate all wires in box and turn power on and then test each wire to bare ground wire >> tester will light up on Hot power source.
Black wire on device is connected to Hot power source.
Red wire on same side of device as black wire is capped off in single pole application.
Red wire on other side of device from black wire goes to the fan motor.
Green wire is ground.

Set fan on highest speed before connecting red wire to fan, and then do not adjust fan speed using pull chain.

I am unsure what volt-amp-testing will show for power output on either red wire, but certainly it will vary as the switch is adjusted to each speed.

Call 800-223-4185 for Legrand tech support.

The only way mine will come on is if i connect the yellow and red wire together which makes it stay on how can i fix


Hi,

This is a car audio video unit
So to connect this unit electrically, they usually require 3 wires for power for it to switch on.
  • The thick black wire is a earth or negative wire, which connects to the negative side of the battery or to the body of the car.
  • Then there is a red and yellow wire.
  • The thicker of the 2 wires red or yellow is constant 12volt power, which should be connected to the positive side of the battery or to constant 12volts in the car wiring plug.
  • The other red or yellow which is the thinner of the 2 is a accessory wire, which means it has 12 volt power only when you turn the key to accessory or motor running.
  • So yes both RED and YELLOW require power for the unit to be on .
  • This is for radio station presets so it doesn't loose memory when you turn the key off, otherwise every time you turn the key you would have to store your stations again.

I hope this helps you.
If so please leave a vote or comment.

Have a great day

Go to napa and they have the connectors that plug in to your existing wire connection, I don't know if they have the one for yours, but it won't hurt to check, you don't have to cut or splice the wireing with there trailer connectors, plug it in and done.

No power to cb


first thing is to make sure the power leads to your CB are hooked up. The black wire from the back of your CB need to go directly to the car battery "minus" "-" or to a metal screw which is actually touching metal not plastic. The red wire needs to go through a fuse. Sometimes there are inline fuses, that is to say built into the red wire that you can remove and check. If not the the red wire should go to a wire that is coming from your cars electrical fuse box. Using a multimeter to check voltages, set it to read DC and to be able to read at least 20 volts. attach the black lead of your meter to the same screw or point where the black wire from your CB is at. Next if your red CB wire has an inline fuse remove it. we will test it in a minute. Now where you have removed the fuse, with the fuse out touch the red lead of your meter to the red wire of your CB but the half that goes the opposite direction of your CB. Is there 12 volts there? oops turn on your ignition and test again. you should have 12 volt reading on your meter, or close to that. If so that means you have power up to the fuse. Turn your ignition switch back off. Now set the meter to read ohms or if you have a buzzer symbol, set it to that. Now touch the red and black leads of your meter together, note what happens. something should happen, meter goes to almost zero and probably makes a tone, if you have it set for buzzer. Now touch the leads to the fuse while it is laying on a table. One lead to one side the other lead to the other side. Doesn't matter which lead goes where. You should see or hear the same thing you just did a second ago. If so then the fuse is good. Put it back in the red wire where it belongs. make sure both ends are snug when you fit it in and tighten up.Try your radio again with the ignition on. does it work? It should if what I said checks out. If not then you will need someone to look at your radio internally for a bad solder joint where the red wire comes in or even a bad switch. If you have made the check I suggest and you don't see anything on the meter when you check for voltage. set the meter for DC voltage, touch the leads up to your car battery just to see if the setting is right on your meter and it does work. If it does then continue on. You will need to do this: touch the red wire of your meter to your cars battery "+". You might need a longer wire to attach to the red lead to be able to reach the battery, because I want you to touch the black lead to the black CB wire at the point where it hooks to your car. Do you see 12 volts now? If not the black wire connection where it makes contact with the screw is not really grounded. Find another ground and try it again until it works. If that all checks out and the radio still doesn't work we are in trouble. The basis of this is that the red wire has to end up making a connection to the car battery "+" one way or another and the black lead of your radio needs to go to the car Battery "-". If your red wire has an inline fuse you could just run the wire directly to your battery "+" and the black wire to your battery "-" It will work if the fuse is good and your radio works. If not then your radio needs help. The drawback of running the wires like that are , would be the radio would not go off and on with the ignition switch. woopie!

There was two black wires on the old switch and no white hooked up . And i am trying to hook up a intermaticmodel ST01 self adjusting timer


http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#ST01C

The ST01C timer has a battery that runs the clock.
The wires are black, red, blue and green.

1) You are replacing a single-pole switch so the timer-red wire is capped off.
Timer-red is not used.

2) The green wire connects to bare ground wire.

3) There are two wires left.
Your switch has 2 black wires.
Timer-black wire connects to black-Hot-wire-from-breaker.
Timer-blue connects to black-wire-to-Load.

4) To start: Connect your timer-wires to either black wire.
Push the ON-OFF button located on timer.
If the lights turn ON, then your wires are correct.
If lights do no turn ON, then swap the two wire with each other.

If you have more problems, add a comment.
Tip: for easy programming, you can set all your programs before you connect wires.

Power to most radios is the red wire and ground is black. Do not mix up the two and make sure your plugs match "red for red" and "black to black" (the ground some times will also be green). If not you can blow a fuse in your box which you might need to check. If you have a meter you can check your car harness plug to see if you have 12 volts on your red coming out. If not make sure your fuse is good and you have the power on in the car (key turned backwards on most cars will power the harness if not turn if forward like you are going to crank it. If you are not sure the radio is good, you can pop the hood of your car and hook up the red wire from the radio to positive side of the battery cable and the black to the ground side of the battery cable and you should be able to turn the radio on. If you see it power up, you will know your problem is in your harness. Hope this helps

Panasonic CQ-C1335U CD/RADIO FOR AN AUTO


what kind of car do you have a Chevy by any chance?? Any way that red wire needs to see 12 volts in order for the radio to turn on. But this is the wire that should get power when the key is turned on NOT directly to the battery. By the way, If you wires to the battery make sure that you have a fuse no more than 6 to 10 inches away from the battery. You should no matter what make you have be able to find a constant 12 volt for the yellow wire and a ground for the black in the dash. Hit me back with year make and model and I'll let you know how to find some ignition.
