I went to replace the positive battery cable in the van and noticed 3 seperate wires all coming off of the terminal. The main cable and a smaller one go to the starter and a third, large thick black one go in towards the driver's side. I haven't found any store bought cables that fit this description (the old cable had a clamp they were fitted into at the terminal), so I replaced the bad cable (main red one) and jury-rigged the other two bare ends to the battery terminal. It now starts fine, but


I have a license plate holder with light that I bought from a third party. I do not have a back bumper so I am using the existing lights wire to hook to the new license plate light. here is the problem: the truck has two wires going to the bulb, I only have one wire coming from this new light. I am assuming that the two wires are a positive from the battery and wire to the switch, can I tie these two together on the one line? or do I only require the positive wire? need assistance.

I would get a voltmeter, hold the black ground wire to the chassis, turn on the lights and touch the red hot wire from the voltmeter briefly to each one of your wires. which ever one of them gives you 12 volts is the one to attach to your new light u ... 1995 Nissan Pickup

Bought a universal O2 sensor for my 2001 Mazda MPV...part is great but new part has one black wire, one gray, one plain white and one with small writing.. bad OEM part has two black wires, one BLUE and one white. Have figured out all but where the blue wire would go. Any clue? The paperwork with the new part has alot of info but says if the color code reference guide does not match to check your OEM manual. I have no OEM manual

If you are sure that the paper work does not have your combo on it, go to a local parts store that has access to a wiring diagram of your MPV. Use the info on the paper work to identify which wires are ground (usually the 2 white ones are) and then m ... 2001 Mazda MPV

I have a 1975 ford 100 with a straight 6. The ignition module is going bad. So I bought a new one. The new one has two plugs like the old one. But on one of the plugs it only has two wires. It is supposed to be the new improved module. But it will not work. I plug my old module back in and it starts. Any ideas?

I just bought a new driver side mirror (just the glass) for my Volvo S40 1998. The mirror itself has two connectors and there are two wires that should be connected to the glass but I can't find any info on which wire should go to which connector. One of the wire is all black and the other is black/red. If I face the mirror as if it was correctly mounted which wire should go to which connector on the mirror itself?

I "solved" this by simply plugging the two wires to the two connectors, since the two connectors are only for the mirror heating I have simply assumed that it makes no difference which wire goes to which connector as the connectors aren't marked in a ... Volvo S40

Engine cranks but does not start, I found a broken wire on what looks like an engine starter relay located on wall by battery. This is a small rectangle box about 1 1/2 " x 3/4" with two posts. One wire on each post. Once I reconnected the loose wire, engine started. Now the symptom is back, but the engine will start after two or three tries. I suspect this part, the supposed relay is going bad. I want to make a proper ID of this part to buy a new one. I had a mechanic which I paid tell me to b

I have a new problem with my oil pressure sending unit. It seems that the unit is fine, but the actual electrical connection from the wiring harness is where the oil is leaking from. Where the two wires go into the connector, they have a white rubber grommet separating positive from the ground and acts as a seal for the connector. Do they offer these new or am I stuck going to a salvage yard?

I need to apologize for my typing. How anyone can read it is beyond me. A stroke wasted my vision a tad. A big tad.\015\012Let me ask without insult. Are you sure they are both wires? There should be no oil coming from there unless it is runn ... 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Now that have the new one I don't remember which circuits go to what fusible links. The connector pins are labeled A, B, C, and D. The circuits are the Anti-lock module, the HVAC blower motor relay (under the hood at the front evaporator), and two go to the fuse panel under the dash: one powers the front and rear HVAC blowers and one powers the head lights (among other things).
