Cable coloring is a bit tricky atimes as the colors differ from time to time. Generally the colour grouping can be said to be in 2 sets. 1st set is the live cable this comes in the following colors red, brown and an occassional mixture of one or more of the two colors. The other set of cables usually come in the form of black, green and an occassional mixture of one of the two colors. Sorry about your plight on the car not starting but i guess you will have to resort to the mech eventually. There are loads of things which could make the car not start. This can only be determined by a mech could range from a simpe fuse to the control board. or from a wet coil to a simple overflow of petrol. It will be better if you get a mech so as to avoid complicating issues and avoid a disaster. Hope this solution has been helpful?

When tackling electrical problems, it is mandatory to use a voltmeter to try to figure out the bad or erroneous wiring, but even at that, it's still tricky most of the time. A starter can have a shorted winding, and even though the solenoid kicks in, the starter may not. Fuse box wiring on older vehicles can get oxidation on the terminals and wiring, and fail to make contact. The same with relay contacts inside the fuse box. You need, at this point, to make sure you're getting juice to the ignition switch- that's your start point. Second step is to figure out why you're not, or if you have juice coming out of the switch to the starter and ignition coil. Wiring harnesses can contain "fusible links", or pieces of wire caculated to melt with a certain amount of amperage. Easiest way to find out if this has happened is to use a toner device to ensure continuity, but you can use long leads on a ohmmeter, with a clip at both ends. Wiring can be tricky, but if you keep checking enough, eventually you'll find the missing piece of the puzzle. Right now your starting place to concentrate on is battery to ignition switch to starter and coil- those are your main lines, and I suspect a problem with the fuse box or ignition switch, just guessing at things.
Anyway, hope this helps, and good luck- I know your pain too well, at times!

Can I bypass the crank sensor on a 1997 Automatic Honda Accord?


They both have crank sensors. crank sensor is the same as RPM sensor. Both cars need rpm signal. You could compare the inputs and match differences...but BYPASSING or skipping isnt ever a good idea. The 97 if I recall required crank and tdc. the 93 simply had a distributor reluctor generating both,.
WHat I recommend is you dont mix and match engines that arent compatible or change the incompatible pieces. Life is much easier both at 1st start and in the future when it needs repair.
However, you can get the crank/rpm signal from the 93 distributor, move it to the same wires ast he 97 lists, and it MAY fire. Youll still have to deal with cam and TDC, and all sorts of other incompatioble parts.. the 93 5 speed ECM should still work fine, so its a 5 speed? the engine doesnt care. Was t just not cranking because of the clutch switch input you now didnt have? You could jumper those pins (blue n black?) and bypass that. At least then all your ECM inputs are correct and in the right pins. That seems alot easier than mixing and matching year parts.

Replacing stock Delco stereo display unit Model #16161954 in my 1993 Buick Regal with another stock unit, do I just color match all the wires?


yeah. if you were going to put an after market cd player in there, you would actually need to purchase a wiring harness though. but yes, just match the wires, but be careful to not cross them, because those wires are small enough to melt if you cross them.

1993 chevy cavalier 2.2l 4 c. sparks and wire order


it fires 1-3-4-2. The coil pack is marked 1-4, match them up with your cylinders, and you're good to go! Cylinder 1 is on the front of the engine, the side opposite from the transmission. Find your alternator and that's at cylinder 1.
