Are you asking about internal or external wiring?
To hook it up to a car, the black handle goes to frame ground (not the negative battery terminal) and the red goes to battery positive.
If you need internal wiring, please give me a complete description of what needs to be wired and why (ie - charger works but 200A booster for starting doesn't work, etc)

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
If you haven't considered replacing the PCM (powertrain control module) then now is the time. The PCM is the car's computer that when it's faulty something will surely fail. One good reason why the engine won't run at all even you have a good spark. Vehicle nowadays are powered by sensors and this sensors are being controlled by the PCM.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Im not sure exactly what your question is but it is worth it to replace the wheel bearings because there usely the first thing to fail in the system . Im not sure if you mean front or rear front will go sooner you will have to take some things apart but most of the time if you are having a problem and you hear bearing noise it will correct it just back the new ones with greese and do bolth eighter front or rear witch is giveing you the problem and you might as well do the brake pads or shoes and rotors if its the front because you will have to take it all a part anyway . And check the spec for tightening them its not a set torque and a lot of times you will need to tighten them up after 3 or 4 thousand miles as the gresse moves and heats up for a while on the fronts olny The old bearing you drive out with a large socket and use the old beaing to press the new one in and the races if required on tapered rolleds . New rotors will have new races but you will also need a new inner seal always

Whenever you turn the steering all the way against the stop the pressure in the system skyrockets. If fluid is coming out of a hose there must be a leak in it. You should avoid turning the steering wheel against the stop if at all possible.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!
There's a big possibility that the MAF sensor is faulty. If the MAF is faulty you'll have vacuum irregularities. No wonder why the idle speeds up and it may drop too in any given time. I suggest that you have the MAF sensor replaced to resolve the issue.

Sounds like a possible cracked head.....I would have it checked by a repair shop.

Chevrolet C2500... | Answered on Mar 17, 2011

The speedometer sounds like it is broken. You could probably find a used one and the cable and gear at a wrecking yard.

Check the fuses. If both low-beams went out at exact same time, it is probably the fuse (hopefully not a wiring short).
If they went out with a couple days or weeks of each other, it could just be the bulbs. They typically have very close lifespans and if they were installed at the same time, could burn out near the same time.
If the fuse is good, take the bulbs out. Look for a break in the filament.
Sometimes a fuse can break right at the base and you can't see it and sometimes a bulb can burn out without breaking the filament. If you can't see a break in either, start by replacing the fuse. (You can even take a same sized fuse out of a non-vital electronic (maybe radio, or power windows) and put it in the low beam spot.) If they work, there's the problem. Replace the missing fuse and your good. If not, then replace the bulbs.

Hello kking.

I would run with overdrive off with that.
You may be able to flip it on when going on a downgrade. That's what I do to save a little fuel and reduce engine RPM.
When in drive the link between the engine and the driveshaft is the same speed,so there is less heat being generated inside the transmission.
More heat is developed in overdrive.
The overdrive gear is not designed to pull loads in many transmissions as well.

Hope this answers your question.
Thank you for using FixYa.

what model car/engine do you have???

Chevrolet C2500... | Answered on Mar 10, 2011

Doing it together or apart dont really matter. If you do charge it together you wont be able to see what battery is going out.

Now if you do one by one you should be able to find the bad one just from the charger.

Now if you just ran the systm down charge together...

A stock 14 bolt rear end hold about 3 quarts. To drain the differential you will have to pull the rear cover. I jack up one end of the axzle and let drain for a while and then the other end for a while. This assures you get as much of the old fluid out as possible. After the case is drained replace the rear cover with a new gasket(I usually just use permatex ultra blue silicone). Refill the case through the fill plug located on the side of the pumpkin. Fill until the fluid starts to come back at you through the hole. Be sure to check if you have a posi or limited slip differential because you will need to add an additive to make either of these work properly. Make sure to add the additive before you top off the fluid so you don't overfill the case. I generally drive 50-100 miles and then recheck the level to make sure it is full.
