I am looking for a wiring diagram for a 1972 Boatel Islander. My wife bought this boat 3 years ago. It is sea (or rather lake) worthy (after 1000's of dollars). At this point, most of the work is...


When we had to replace a wiring harness in that era, we made a diagram of connections and colors, (today we have phone cameras) Then we had 30 different color wire and different sizes for load. We would pull the need amount of wires and some extras and tie a harness long enough to fit, plus a lot of extra. Sleeve it for chafe guard and reconnect. Not as hard as it sounds. The was not much uniformity in those days. Good luck.

I'm installing the Pyle plcd33mr in my 1996 rinker 180 boat and the wireing harness on the stereo does not match up with the boats. How should I go about fixing this


The trick is find the adapter which plugs into the original radio's harness. In the automotive world, these adapters are vehicle specific and readily available. The adapter plugs into the original radio's harness and the wires on the adapter are the same colors as the wire colors on the new after market radio's plug. So it's a matter of connecting yellow to yellow ,etc.
I was unable to locate adapters for boat radios, or radio pin outs . I would think they are available as the automotive adapters are.
I suggest you go to a local marine supply store and ask if they carry radio adapters for after market radios. You can also try doing a web search. It may work if you can come up with the name and model number of the original radio in the boat, and try a search using that info....

Caravelle boat wiring schematic


I doubt that you'll find one. For the engine package (harness) you'll be able to find a diagram in the applicable service manual or on line. As far as the wiring that Caravelle installed in your boat good luck. My advise is to look at Nigel Calders book " Boat owners Mechanical and Electrical Manual". Charlie Wing also wrote a good text. Unless it's been changed by some previous owner your boat's wiring will be color coded in line with the standards of the ABYC. Once you know the color code it's fairly simple to figure out the wiring. At about 12 years your boat is prime for a few electrical issues.

I need to hook up a boat trailor Whats the color code for a 1995


I suspect that the 4 wire harness includes a ground, so you may not be able to connect both brake lights and turn signals, which are separate lamps on the pickup. You may need to get an adapter.

In any case, the color codes on the pickup are:

Tail lights -- pink/blue
Brake Lights -- green/yellow
Left turn signal -- gray/blue
Right turn signal -- gray/red
Ground -- black

Need to finish my car but dont know how to get wiring diagrams with listed colors


Robbie, doing a harness overhaul with diagram is a mess, try a salvage yard to find harness you need, or look for one in remanufactured books for your car. I have done harnesses from scratch and can't tell you what a pain it is getting it right and fixing plugs for origional connections. If you find one at salvage take it out yourself so you understand how to hook it up. This is without a doubt the best advice that can be given in this case.

Pressing brake causing blinker issue


The trailer harness that was installed probably has a short inside the box that distributes power to the trailer pig-tail. Remove the trailer harness. You problem will be cured.

I am having trouble trying to install a stereo to my 1994 lincoln town car because i dont now the color code to the radio harnes so i can install it


Best thing to do is purchase a Radio Wiring Harness. These can be purchased at a Store like Circuit City, Best Buy, WalMart (not sure of your location) or a 12 Volt Specialty shop.

This harness will connect to your new radio harness and plug directly into the vehicle harness without having to cut wires. The Radio Wiring Harness will come with color identification to match to your radio harness.
