Hello diallo

Do you mean which wire is the +5VDC on?

There is an industry standard for coloring of computer power supply wires.

+5VDC is on the RED wires.

HERE is a link on Computer Power Supplies "ABCs" that will be very helpful to you, I think.

Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have any further questions.

Thank you

I own a 2008 GMC Envoy Denali, 2WD. Yesterday the engine would barely idle and numerous lights on the dash came on including the check engine light. I had a friend check the diagnostic codes and it came up...

Five days prior to this, the battery had to be replaced. The engine was started without the pause for two minutes ?????? Where do you people come up with some of this stuff ? Pausing for two min. before starting has nothing to do with it . DTC P0651: 5-Volt Reference 2 Circuit
Some of the engine sensors on your vehicle work off of a steady 5 volt supply by the PCM - engine computer . One of these sensors is short internally bring down the PCM .
Short to Ground
Open/High Resistance
Short to Voltage
Signal Performance
Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor 1 5-Volt Reference 2 Circuit
Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor 2 5-Volt Reference 1 Circuit
Air Conditioning (A/C) Refrigerant Pressure Sensor 5-Volt Reference 1 Circuit
Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor 5-Volt Reference 1 Circuit
Engine Oil Pressure (EOP) Sensor 5-Volt Reference 1 Circuit
Fuel Tank Pressure (FTP) Sensor 5-Volt Reference 1 Circuit
Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) Sensor 5-Volt Reference 1 Circuit
The Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor 5-Volt Reference 2 Circuit
Throttle Position (TP) Sensor 1 and 2 5-Volt Reference 2 Circuit
P0122, P0222

That's why it wasn't running good ,an lights lit on the dash. Your best bet , take it to GMC dealer .
No where in GM service info does it say after replacing the battery that you need to wait two min. before starting .
Position the positive battery cable (1) to the battery.
Tighten the positive battery cable bolt.
Tighten the bolt to 15 N·m (11 lb ft).
Connect the negative battery cable. Refer to Battery Negative Cable Disconnection and Connection .

Caution: Unless directed otherwise, the ignition and start switch must be in the OFF or LOCK position, and all electrical loads must be OFF before servicing any electrical component. Disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent an electrical spark should a tool or equipment come in contact with an exposed electrical terminal. Failure to follow these precautions may result in personal injury and/or damage to the vehicle or its components.

How can i hook up a car stereo in the garage without using a car battery, and get the same juice as far as wattage and power???

Wire a 12 volt AC adapter to it. Connect the power to the positive wire, & the ground to the negative wire. If it's a low power unit a 1 amp adapter will work. If it's a high powered unit you might need a 12 volt 5-10 amp adapter designed for monitors, TVs, monitors, & some laptops. Beware some laptop AC adapters can be 16-36 volts. Make sure you use a 12 volt one, & know which wire is positive, or you'll burn it out.

Need a wiring diagram for the starter solenoid. I have a 5 volt drop from battery to solenoid actuator terminal.

One main power lead to starter positive terminal(large one). One small wire to the s terminal(This is the start/run wire that powers vehicle. If you have a 5 volt drop then either the connection are poor and need cleaning or the positive cable from battery to starter is corroded and needs replaced.

1996 jeep cherokee 4.0 litre petrol turns over but not start

the dist and injectors work on a 12 volt feed.....the 5 volt feed comes from the powertrain control module but it is possible that one of the sensors are grounding it out. until it acts up again it will be hard to locate. are you sure the 5 volt feed wasnt there. it may just be a bad crank sensor or dist pickup plate causing the no start

If connector have two big brown wires (pins 1 and 11) and a small brown wire (pin 2). then short circuit the small brown wire with a big brown wire (pins 1 and 2).
Also short circuit the small black wire (pin 16) with a big black wire (pin 17).
Ps. The Power Supply needs a minimal load ex: 1A.

All you have to do is connect the green wire (normally thinner than the rest of the cables) to any black wire. This can be done easily with a short piece of wire. If the power supply doesn?t immediately turn on (within 2 seconds) remove the wire, you may have connected it to the wrong wires, although most power supplies won?t allow a short to damage the unit. Once on, the power supply isn?t loaded so the voltages won?t be as stable as if they were used in a full PC, however it?ll be sufficient for most uses. It?s not a good idea to leave a power supply on in this fashion for a long period of time too."
