Ok so I have a 1978 chevy pickup, and the fuel gauge isnt working. It says i have a full tank all the time. Got any ideas on how to fix it? Also my left tail light isnt working, and the bulbs are all good,...

Check the ground wire to the fuel sending unit @ the tank, A ground wire can be spliced in and located on a good metal surface just about any where..

Difficulty wiring into GM harness

well if your trying to actively wire it up with the car battery still connected that is why you are blowing fuses. just a heads up too if you have a live connection while hooking up the cd player you could short out other electrical devices and you could be in alot more trouble thatn just blowing fuses. the black wire is what is blowing fuses its because you have it hooked up wrong to a wire that is sending voltage not recieving voltage. ground the black wire to the actual chassis instead of hooking it to the ground wire from the harness or whatever color its grounded to which shouldnt be anything but black if you have the black wire hooked up to ANYTHING that isnt black that is why you are popping fuses. so hook up the red yellow and make your own ground you shouldnt have any problems after that.

Hooking up trailer lights

Are you checking your lighting with the trailer hooked up? This is the trailer's ground source. The white wire on both sides of the plug is the ground wire. Grounds are very important, Make sure they good and clean.

Car cd player installation

Noooo, lol they should all have a seperate location, look at a wiring diagram from your factory speaker harness, or buy an adapter from scosche or something (available at wal-mart for like 7 bucks) to standardize them. And your speaker wire should not be hooked up to the ground EVER.

Black - Ground
Red - 12V
Yellow - Battery

The red and yellow may OCCASIONALLY be required to be at the same place, but i've only had to do this with a vehicle from the 60's.

Mine is actually a q4000 4 channel amp

First of all, you MUST HOOK UP YOUR GROUND WIRE FIRST. You may have damaged it if you hooked your power and trigger wire first and then the ground wire. Unhook EVERYTHING except the hot wire, ground wire and trigger wire. If you still can't get the unit to come on then it is time for a trip to the repair shop. Good luck.
