I think someone has used wiring that didn't come with the opener. One the rear of the motor unit are wiring terminals. The sensors connect to terminals 2 and 3. Whichever color wire is connected to terminal 2 goes to the screw marked white and the wire on terminal 3 goes to the screw marked black. This information is if you have a Craftsman or Chamberlain opener.

The manual says wire black to black and white to white and ground to green screw. The box i am wiring into has a white a black a ground and a red. What do I do with the red wire?


Depending on where box is and who wired it the red wire very well may be switched from inside. If you want to use the dusk on and off and sensor exclusively, in other words, you don't want it switched, cap off the red wire and don't use it. If you would like it switched, see if you can find a switch that will operate the red wire, probably somewhere around the nearest doorway out, or if you have a switch that you could never figure out what it was for.

What are the colors of the speaker wires in a dodge stratus 1997 coming from the wire harness of the car itself


The easiest way is to check the speakers themselves as manufacturers tend to change colors of speakers at a whim. Usualy though you will have 8 wires (4 front & 4 rear) paired in colours (white goes with white+black stripe(stripe is possative on speaker))etc.
Not knowing the cars electrics I can't be more specific.(I live in UK so don't know that much about U.S. cars)
