I hope someone comes along who can help; in the meantime, you might try the following. Naturally the power wires will be 12V and usually red(+) and black(-), if they're not, you can examine the other colors, to determine if their are separate ground wires for each speaker. If it uses a remote, and you want to hook that up; I can't help. sorry. But, if the speakers have a common ground, there will only be 1 wire for each speaker, the other connects to the ground of the car. If there are two wires for each speaker, they will be 4 different colors, with a 2nd wire which has the same color for all 4 speakers, so each speaker has a colored wire, and a common colored wire. This will leave the power connections, unless you have other controllers (see above).

One you know which are the power wires, you can connect them to a spare 12 V battery, and then comes the fun part. While adjusting the radio for front back, left and right, using the colored and a common wire for each speaker, this will be the same as the ground wire for the power even if not the same color, you can connect it to ground for the test. Then connect the colored wire and common wire to a speaker, by adjusting the controls you can find out if that colored wire is for front or back, left or right. Then you'll have your color code.

Although prolonged use of only one speaker or only two could cause damage to the radio, short use to troubleshoot at low volume shouldn't be an issue. Just don't use it that way.for a long time!

I hope this helps. Let me rating up my answer! :-)

I disconnected the pump and need to know where the red black aND WHITE wires go

Hi, this is John the Hayward tech. You say the wire colors are Red, Black and White. Does not seem that the wires colors were correct from the start. Not knowing your voltage let me clarify some things. Normally if you have 115volts coming into the pump you wire colors should be Red or Black to L1 White to L2 and a green ground to the green ground screw. If you have 230volts coming into the pump the two hot leads are normally red and black with a green ground. The red and black wires go to L1 and L2 does not matter red or black. The green goes to the green ground screw.

I want to connect my hayward motor. it has L1, L2, C and ground. i have 4 wires from the control panel 2 black 1 red and green ground. i connected the 2 blacks to the L1 and L2 and the red to the C and the...

Hey Joey-
We need to establish something first!
Is this for a spa or pool. Are you aware that spa motors for the most normal part are "TWO" Speed. When the diagram on a motor shows: L1, L2, C, and then your Ground lug, that is for a 2 speed motor.
A single speed motor will normally be labeled L1, C or N & Ground. Sometimes C or N will be labeled as L2.
Motor manufacturers will normally label the former for 120 vac and the latter for 240 vac powered motors

Now, 2nd-
Electricity is color blind!!! It does not care what color the wire is that it is flowing thru, nor does know what color it is! It will not let the installer know when he is using green wire to connect between a breaker and say L1 of a motor. So, wire colors really will not help us assist you to tell you for sure which color to put where! Just Saying!

What you need to do is get a multi-meter and check each wire to ground. Since you said you have 4 wires, you probably have a 240 vac system and it is not unusual to have two of the same color for each hot 120 vac line. In your case the 2 black wires. Then normally a 3rd wire will be a different color from the two hot lines, which may have been like your Red line. and then a 3rd color wire for the ground, which is normally Green - but again, electricity is Color Blind, and it doesn't care what color the wire is. It is for our convenience to quickly identify wires by an accepted standard of colored wires. Black or Red for hot, White for common/neutral and Green for ground.

Anyway if you get two wires reading hot - 120 vac, take note of those wires. Then read across both of them - should be 240 or there abouts. Then check for continuity between the two other wires. If there is they are both downstream connected to a ground, but one is probably connected to an isolated neutral bus bar & is used as your 120 vac common or neutral and the last one is ground.

You can ground the wire to any unpainted metal surface. Find a screw or bolt, loosen it, put the wire under it and re-tighten.

I would like to use the 1301 switch but my house circuit has 2 black wires and 1 red wire which terminals do I connect the wires to on the switch?

I don't know the copper-brand 1301 switch
Internet photos of the 1301 show that it has two screw terminals, and a green ground screw
Switch with 2 screws is a single-pole switch. (plug green ground screw)

Sounds like you are replacing 3-way switch with 3 screws. (plus green ground screw)
3-way switches control hallway lights, with switch at each end of hallway.

I think you need to buy a 3-way switch.

How to wire 3-way switch:
Bare ground always goes to green screw
The key is the dark-colored screw.
Old switch has dark-colored screw >> mark this wire.
Attach this wire to dark-colored screw on new switch.
Other two wires go to either screw.

Need new four prong pigtail. wires on dryer are not color coded.

The following link explains how to connect a 4-prong appliance cord to your dryer:

This is for United States Standard wiring code. If you reside outside the US, please let me know.

In a nutshell the color coding is as follows:

RED - HOT (120 VAC)

Facing the dryer from the rear, remove the cover over the terminal block. If the wires at the temrinal block are not color coded, the outer two wires (L and R) are your hot leads. The center wire will be neutral. The ground wire gets grounded to the equipment cabinet on a ground lug. Make sure you do not ground the neutral wire.

If you have questions about this repair, please ask. I hope you find this information helpful.
