Is the converter powered or passive? Each RCA (red or white) connection represents a + and - speaker wire for one speaker or channel. So assuming you already have the amplifier you'll cut the speaker wire coming from the head unit. From the head unit speaker wires will attach to the input or hi-level connection on the converter. The other half of the wiring goes to the speakers in the doors. Those will go to the amplifier which is or should be fed by the RCA's on the hi-level converter box.
Passive coverters don't require 12v power but active ones will need 12v input from a remote signal such as from ignition circuit or a power antenna to turn the unit off and on so your battery isn't drained with the car off.

Check your gas cap. If someplace can test it you might luck out. This website advertises manuals and info online. The evaporator cannister is suppose to purify excess fuel vapors. But a system which is not sealed will code an error lamp.

I have a 1991 Lincoln Town car and I hooked up a stereo system an all at once my locks Windows stereo and air ride have went out I was wondering if you could give me a step by step on how to fix this


Could be to late. Could have blow the BCM. Unhook the radio and see if the other things start working. If they do, your lucky. Then find some to hook up the radio. I can install radios, but I use a volt /ohm meter. You can not trust the diagrams the radios come with. Or the diagrams I buy.

I have a alpine amp i need to install in to my f150 truck with a factory radio


The easiest way to accomplish this is to get a kit from your nearby stereo shop that will convert your stereo signal from your factory unit to a pair of rca outputs .You can get them from walmart if you feel up to the task of wiring it up. You will still need to get an amp wiring kit as well from there its just a matter of running power ground and rca cords also a remote lead to turn the amp on and off-you can do that from the fuse box easy enough.-after that just run your speaker wires from the amp to the speakers and your in business.hope that helps

I have an RCA converter box hooked up to an RCA TV and a Sanyo VCR. The TV and VCR are set on Channel 3. The converter box is set on Channel 4 and the TV is also switched to CH 4 when viewing digital...


Basically, you cannot use the coax connections for both the VCR and the RCA converter box. I would hook up the phono/cinch connectors from the VCR to the TV if you can (these are also called RCA connectors, but I'm avoiding using that name so we dont confuse the digital receiver with a cable/connector name that is the same here). There should be a yellow one for video and red/white ones for left and right stereo. I believe the RCA converter comes with a three headed cable that can do this for you. With this configuration, you can set the TV to input on these connectors and the VCR should always output there. Once that is set, you can still use the converter box to receive the signal from your antenna, then run the coax to the VCR. Now, the VCR will always have to be set on channel 4 in your setup and you will need to manually change channels on the converter box for it to record a show. Does this make sense so far?

How would i add amp and sub to a factory stereo system


You can't hook it up like an aftermarket stereo, but there is a piece of equipment (cannot remember what it is called right now) in which you can hook regular speaker wire up to it and it converts it into an RCA jack connector.
