There is no "ALL" answer as car makers all use different wiring harnesses. You need a simple "Wiring Kit" available at Walmart, Kmart and all car audio stores. It contains the adapter that details for you the speaker, output and voltage wires to use. Search Google for Car Stereo Wiring and the reading should help with your install.

How to wire up a 1996honda accord alternatar


i am assuming that you have already got the old alternator tested and found it defective that's why you are installing a new or refurb one yourself. if it is a refurb, you shouldn't have any actual problems re-wiring it. simply follow the color coded wires. now it is different if you are installing aftermarket. best way to go about this is by using a digital tester and probing the wiring itself. normally, the difference lies only on the color of the wires,

Radio won't play


There may be differences between the color coding of the adapter wires and the color coding of the vehicle. Check to determine whether the wires were functionally matched, not just matched by color. Check for missing or poor connections

My car stereo was stole they cut the factory wiring harness from the durango i need to know the color codes of the wires please


That's hard to answer cause it depends on how far back on the wire harness they cut. Plus if you have a Bose system or not. I would highly suggest to take it into a stereo install shop to at least check it out but maybe install the new stereo.

There is a wiring color code that all vehicles use but if the wires have been cut to far back they will be different colors. If you have a factory amp then you will have to rewire for the speakers to bypass it.

I added below the color code. Make sure you disconnect your battery before you start wiring anything.

Please note: You can do major damage to your truck computer and other components if you wire it wrong.

Proceed at your own risk

Radio wires differ from the speaker to the radio


This is the most common problem with self installs.The best thing to do is to get the car radio installation plug,it will plug into the factory plug for your factory radio and will give you a color coded pigtail to wire into that usually matches up perfectly with new aftermarket car radios.If the wires are already cut then you best bet is to extend the wires so that they are easy to work with hookup the power,ground,antenna and try dirrerent combos to isolate each speaker and label the wires accordingly.

Installing a trailer brake controller and need to tap the brake light wire. This is the wire that shows 12 only when the pedal is pressed. What color is the wire on an '05 Jeep Grand Cherokee Ltd? I could...


Don't bother with a schematic...they all differ. Use a simple test light and just probe the rear light harness with everything turned off except for the brake lights, only one wire should show power. You can also check the color of the wire coming directly out of the bulb socket. I own a jeep, can read and draw wiring diagrams and have yet to find a diagram that has the same color coding as my vehicle.

MY DRYER IS NOT HEATING UP. 220 VOLT CONNECTION ON BACK OF DRYER- NEED WIRING DIAGRAM OR WHERE DOES BLACK WIRE GET ATTATCHED IN BACK OF DRYER. THERE IS A BLACK WIRE HANGING THAT IS CONNECTED TO A BLACK BOX...


The following link explains how to correctly install a power cord to the terminal block of a dryer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r793520-3_prong_4_prong_power_cord_conversion

Take note of the difference between a 4-wire and 3-wire configuration. The color codes for both installations are as follows:

RED - HOT (120 VAC)
BLACK - HOT (120 VAC)
WHITE - NEUTRAL (0 VAC)
GREEN - Ground

The main difference between the two configurations is how the Neutral wire and Ground wire is installed.

In a 3-wire configuration ground and neutral are connected together at the terminal block.

In a 4-wire configuration ground and neutral are INDEPENDENT of each other. Neutral is terminated at the terminal block, while ground is terminated on a ground lug on the equipment cabinet.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Color code for a dual xdma7715


You need to buy a ford wiring harness. They are about $22 at Best Buy. If you want to hardwire the unit to your car then you need to get the wiring colors from Ford. It is 100x times easier to just buy the wire harness.
