I need help installing a rockford fosgate punch 75hd amp in my 2013 ford f150. I ran the power cable but now I'm having trouble finding the radios remote turn on/off lead. Took the dash apart and...


If u are using a factory radio it may not have a remote turn-on (Usually the blue wire on the main connector to radio. and do not connect to any blue wire without checking the voltage) if there is not blue wire (remote) you can connect your amp to the red 12v (accessory) wire which will turn on amp when key is in accessory position and works the same and will not hurt your amp. If u do use this method and a pop is introduced when turning on radio and amp may need to purchase a relay to delay the amp turn on.

1993 Ford Escort Blower Motor & AC Switch


I'm going to start from the beginning.
The blower motor gets power from the high blower relay and it is grounded thru the fan switch and the resistor. So you should have power on the pink white blower wire coming from the high relay to the blower motor. The orange black wire from the motor is ground going to the resistor and fan switch. The blue wires on the control panel are for the ac compressor.
The high blower relay gets power from fuse number 5 in the box. The blower motor is grounded thru the resistor and then thru the fan switch.

How to install jensen 40w+40w a-80


I have one of these new, in the box, with no instructions.

Specifications:
Power Output: 40W/Chan Maximum, 18W/Chan RMS
(20hz-20khz into 4 ohms at less than 1% THD)
Freq. Responce: 20hz-30khz, +/-3dB
Signal to noise ratio: 80dB, A-weighted
Input Sensitivity:
Low Level, 100-500 mV
High Level, 1-5v
Input Impedence:
Low Level, 10k ohms
High Level, 27 ohms
Load Impedence: 4-8 ohms allowable (4-8 ohm speakers)
Power Requirement: 14.4v DC (10.8-15.6 allowable)

As you can see the RMS wattage output of these units is only about 18W maximum.

I am planning on using the amp I have on a low power factory car radio. A low power factory radio output should be somewhere between 6-12 watts rms/channel. I will be using the "High Level" inputs for this. DO NOT connect a radio with a higher output power. If your radio says "High Power", 25W/channel, etc, do not connect to this amp. (exception: you can use the "line out" connectors, if so equipped, See Below). I don't have the connector for the high level input so i don't know what I'll do to hook up to it. I'll probably just run wires out of the amp, in lieu of the connector.

The "Low Level" inputs are for an unamplified, line level signal ("line out" connection of a radio, portable CD player, etc). Do Not connect a greatly amplified signal to these connections.

I don't know much about the "Input Sensitivity" control (pot). I'll be leaving it on "Low" for my initial test.

The grey wires are the right speaker wires and the white wires are the left speaker wires. The grey wire with a black tracer mark is the right speaker positive (+) wire. The white wire with a black tracer is the left speaker positive (+) wire.

The blue/white wire is for attachment to your radio's "Auto Ant" (power antenna) connection (usually a orange wire, I said USUALLY). If you have a power antenna on your car, simply splice into the wire running from your radio to the antenna. This blue/white wire activates a relay in the amp which, in turn, completes the circuit through the yellow (+) power wire (See Below). - Alternative 1: You could run this wire directly to your battery with a switch to turn the amp on. You would need to place an in-line fuse of 2amp. - Alternative 2: You could connect this wire to the accessory fuse in your fuse box. If this is done, again, attach a 2amp in-line fuse for extra protection. (Note: if attached to your fuse box accessory fuse, the amp will be on even if you're not using the radio. You could have a switch here also). These are just suggestions. The most common way to connect the blue/white wire is the "Auto Antenna" wire of your radio.

The large black wire is main Ground (-) for the amp. The large yellow wire is Positive (+) power to the amp. Ideally, these should be connected straight to your battery's (+) and (-) terminals. The yellow wire on your amp should have an integral in-line fuse holder with a 7amp fuse. If not, add one. Of course, the black ground wire could simply be attached under a screw, into the body of the vehicle.

Hope this helps !

When i pull the trigger the gun will not activate the battery is fully charged


A wire has come off the connection between the battery & the trigger or connections the triger & the motor, maybe (Blue & Yellow)

Use a philips screwdriver to undo the screws. The plactic covers will come apart. Best to lift only one side. Be careful when doing this & take note of where the cogs fit into the covers when you lift it. If there is a speed change swich on the top of the drill make sure you know which direction it was swiched to. (1 or 2) This is only a machanical swich but it can be a ****** if you move it & don't put it back in the right place. On some models only the handle will come apart, if so, you are in luck.

When you have it apart have a look at the wireing & find the one that has come adrift. It will be where the wire connects to something. Solder it back on. Don't mix the wireing up. There will be a Red Wire going to the Positive side & a Black wire going to the Negative side.

It's not rocket science. Anyone can do it, with a little care.

Our 1999 dodge grand caravan radiator fans don't come on and our van overheats. we have to hot wire the fans directly to the battery. We also need to know where the relay is


it may be the temperature sensor that activates the fans is faulty & needs to be replaced or it could be a loose wire or connection check the wiring & connectors......hope this helps......cheers.

I keep blowing fuses when I try to start my 883. After tracing wires I can't find a dead short anywhere. All the lights and horn work fine. Only when I hit the start switch does it POP. I have checked...


Do not put a bigger fuse in the slot. If you do, you'll just burn up your wiring harness. A fuse is there to protect the wires. The fuse does this by blowing if the maximum current capacity of the WIRE it's protecting is exceeded. If it's blowing the fuse ONLY when you press the start button, it's in that circuit somewhere. I'd pull the starter relay and try it again. The relay is on the backside of the oil tank. You'll have to take the seat off to get to it. If it blows a fuse then, the problem has to be in the wire that comes from the start button going to the relay. If it does not blow the fuse, buy an new relay and install that. If it starts blowing the fuse again, you'll have to look at the schematic and find out where the wires go and trace them out. If you aren't getting any voltage at the blue wire, pull the relay and do a continuity check from the end of the wire where it plugs onto the starter and the frame. Pull the wire off the terminal on the starter and test it. If you have continuity, you have a short somewhere in that wire. Contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net and I'll send you a schematic. Remind me of what you need.

Good Look

Battery charger shows charged. however when tun throttle, nothing. no indication of loose wire connections. have a pocket mod


Make sure it is not battery or motor, jump the battery + & - to the motor + & -, if it works it will be the control box


30 minute fix for very cheap


ITEMS NEEDED
Get a Potter & Brumfield relay (5 poles)
2-3 feet of wire
4 female wire ends to plug into relay


HOW TO FIX
Take apart razor so you can see the black control box


Unhook throttle plug, this is the one with 4 wires (2 brown & 2 orange on mine)


Wire relay:
85: Ground
30: Red wire from switch to control box, if you wire this straight to battery it will work with switch on or off (killing battery)
87: Red wire to motor
86: Brown wire from throttle plug


Run a wire from 12v (battery) to other brown wire on throttle plug


END RESULT
When the throttle is activated, it closes the loop in the brown wires, triggers the relay, activates the motor


You WILL NOT have the throttle control, it is wide open or off when you activate/de-activate the throttle


This will save you $30 for a new control (brain) box.

I have a DuoTherm BriskAIr 13.5K BTU. The Dometic thermostat also controls my HydroFlame 8531-IV furnace. This morning, the furnace would not come on. I checked the wiring and there is no voltage at the...


If you look at control box at roof unit, they usually use a separate set of wires for furnace. See what colors they are attached to at harness to thermostat. Some just follow other harness, and come out at thermostat. (bypass control box) Once you've determined which 2 they are, join them together & see if furnace starts, as it should. If it does, thermostat is faulty. If not, pull outside cover off & check voltages at furnace. I'm guessing by furnace model that your unit is approx 30 ft , but if it's a park model, you may have 24 volt system on furnace or 12 volt. Another way of confirming is to go to back of furnace where air intake grille is inside your unit, and locate 2 blue wires going to furnace & remove whatever wires are attached to them & connect them together. Furnace should start up.

Amp not staying on


Hello lyttle_matt1,

Connect a DC voltmeter between the "remote" (+) terminal and the "ground" (-) terminal on the amp. When you turn on your Pioneer, you should read 12-14V. If you get voltage for a second and then it goes away, either the incorrect wire from the head unit is connected, or the head unit remote turn-on is defective. If the voltage remains on the terminal and the amp immediately turns back off, it's possible that the remote turn-on is not supplying adequate current for the amp. To determine if that is the case, run a separate wire from a positive (+) accessory terminal (cigarette lighter or fuse box) to the amp remote terminal. If the amp then turns on and stays on, you'll need to wire a relay into the turn-on wire. The wiring for such a relay is shown here. Most any 12V SPST or SPDT relay from an auto parts store or Radio Shack will work OK.
