How do I find where to plug in the wire going to both of my 12v center consol outlets?

is there power to the two outlets ? if there is check if the spare wire's are positive and negative , if they are they are extra wires to be able to hard wire a component so it is constantly connected , something that you would not want to remove from the vehicle , as it is red/black it does suggest that it should be constant power (powered when ignition off) ,as with all manufacturers there will be wire's/connectors that are not used on every model , as they try to use the same looms on many model types to save costs etc ,hope this is helpfull

How to fix hot/ground reverse outlet

The black and the white wires on those plugs are reversed. Turn the power off for those plugs, and swap the wires. The black wires go to the brass colored screw, and the white wires go to the silver colored screws.

Sparks when you put in plug

Do any other devices or appliances spark when you plug them into the same outlet? If so, you may have a wiring problem, and you should have an electrician inspect the wiring as soon as possible.
If the iron is the only thing that sparks when you plug it into the outlet, there may be a wiring problem inside the iron, or the ground wire may not be connected. Irons are not generally expensive; you should replace the iron for safety's sake.

I dont have the orginal ground wire for my Technics SL-BD20D turntable someone told me i could use rca cables to ground it, i have a pre amp cause my main amp didnt have phono jacks on the back of it.

You don't need the original ground wire for Technics SL-BD20D turntable,
any plain cable can be used for this purpose...
you should connect turntable to your pre amp,should be a "phone" input at the back...
here are some suggestions for grounding....
  • Plug in a surge protector to the outlet, and then plug all the components into that surge protector
  • Connect a ground plug to the surge protector and then plug the ground plug into the main outlet. A ground plug is available at any hardware store, and turns a three prong connection into a two prong. Ground plugs help eliminate 60 cycle hum.
  • Connect the ground wire from your turntable to the ground wire connection on the receiver. If this doesn't work, looking on the back there should be a grounding point,

    Unplug your receiver.. Split a wire and attach one of the splits to the receiver where you will see the text, "ground" or something similar. Attach the other end to something metal such as a pipe that goes into the ground. Secure with electrical tape. Plug in.
    connect the ground wire to a screw on the electrical outlet.

    Hello, My John Deere 524 snowblower isnt making a spark, I have a brand new spark plug (I also tested with an old spark plug that i knew worked and still no spark), new coil + wire, and I adjusted the gap...

    some of the newer snow blower have keys and the wiring to the key switch could have come loose cause if you have new coil and new spark plug and still no spark sounds like a kill switch problem so if none of the wires r loose and thers no visible issues with the key switch check oil level most have a automatic shut off when oil gets to low this is a tricky one good luck hope one of these works for u

    Ok here is an update... the crank sensor is about 3 volts dc. taking the starter relay out bike will not turn over. I have compression both cylinder.... Have gas going in to the carb. I have 11.6 volts...

    Ok, I assume that you are talking about the large spark plug wire connections on your coil. The book says that the resistance should be 10,000 to 12,500 OHMs. I would assume that is between the two towers as it does not show the lead connections.

    Here's how I test a coil. Turn the switch on and check for 12 volts on one end of the coil. Have a set of plugs in the wires and have them grounded well. Disconnect any wires from the other small connection and connect a temporary jumper wire. Momentarily ground the jumper wire and then remove it from ground. Each time your REMOVE the short jumper wire from ground, you should get a spark from the spark plugs. If not, make sure you still have the 12 volts on the other end and the plugs are well grounded. If this correct and you do not get a spark, your coil is bad.

    2006 Dodge Dakota - power outlet doesn't work. The #28 fuse checks fine.

    Take a 12v test light and wrap the probe with electrical tape, leave about
    1/4" exposed. With the key on, ground the test light wire and insert the
    probe into the outlet and touch it to the center power contact. If the light
    stays out and you have a good ground, you don't have +power at the
    outlet. If the fuse is good, you may have a bad wire or socket. But if it
    lights up, we go to the next step. Touch the probe to a known +power
    source and ground the wire to the metal side in the outlet. If you don't
    get light, check the ground for the outlet socket. Repair as needed.
    If it lights up, then you know you have power and ground. Check the
    plug on the device you're trying to use. I hope I was of some help.
    Good luck.

    Not getting spark

    Testing the coil packs.

    1. Get an INSULATED wire and hook it to a ground on the car.
    2. Get some one to help you
    3. pull a spark plug wire off the coil
    4. hold grounded wire close to, but not touching, the part where the spark plug wire connects
    5. keep hands away from coil and have your helper turn the engine over ( start car and turn off)
    6. if there was a spark between the wire and the coil pack it is good. if not, the coil pack needs replaced
    7. replace the spark plug wire
    8. test the rest

    No power ay outlet

    Maybe unpluged power/ground on plug. take off trim to access back of pwr outlet. It should have grnd wire and hot wire. Test hot wire with a different ground. If it tests ok, relocate ground/run a new one. If it has no power, recheck fuse or run a new hot wire from fuse panel.
