Having problems with your 1996 Toyota Tercel ?

I have a 1996 Toyota Tercel with an aftermarket alarm system that I'm uninstalling. There are two large gauge wires from the ignition bundle, black/yellow & white/red that have taps on them. A third smaller gauge wire, white/black that was cut & installed on the alarm bundle. I removed all taps (including two power taps on the fuse box) and reconnected the black /white wire. Everything else was removed. The problem is the car wont start. I get acc. power & everything electrical works.

Bought a used 1998 chevy suburban yesterday and found that the reason the dome lights cig lighters etc and the power windows dont work is because someone put aftermarket electronics in and did a shoddy job of it. they tapped into a wire under the dash and oversized the fuse and the wire seems to have melted throughout t he entire length as well as melting the insulation on some of the other wires bundled with it .... should i just try to remove the dash and replace the entire harness with a used

I just rebuilt my 96 CX civic's entire interior. The only wiring changes that were made were to add a 98 civic ex's floor mounted wiring and door wiring so I could install power windows and locks. I also installed a new gauge cluster that includes an RPM gauge (my old one only had speed, fuel, and temperature gauges). I also added two new 10 volt fuses and a relay to the interior circuit box in order to power the power windows, locks, and potentially mirrors that are about to be installed. Al

Dodge Power Ram 250. Engine quit. Coasted to stop. Small fire, resulting burning through two small wires, exposing two other wires. the wires coming from a single larger wire. I twisted jumper wires across the two broken wires, taped the expose wires. Started the engine and drove it five miles to my home. Then soldered the splices. Retaped and bundled the wires. When I started the engine, it died imediately, smoking from the same wires. Are these fusible links? I don,t have a wiring diagram.

I'm trying to remove my 02 lancer ls car alarm. I've removed the box and all the wires that was connected to the box but my car still will not start. I've even replaced the starter and it still won't work. The only thing that stopped was the alarm sound. But I think I didn't remove everything I need too.

I am trying to connect an aftermarket alarm to my 1998 Pathfinder. Everything is connected and working, except the remote door lock and unlock. There are two output wires from the alarm (1 for lock and 1 for unlock). Either wire can be set to have a positive or negative pulse. When set to a negative pulse and each wire connected to the light green/red(lock) and brown (unlock) wires on the pathfinders keyless entry module, only the passenger doors and rear doors work.

Lately when ever it is damp or rainy outside, my factory car alarm goes off randomly. Not while I am driving though. Is the there a fuse I can remove or a wire I can cut ? My mechanic said the alarm is "aligned" with the the power locks. So if alarm is disarmed I will not have power locks. He also said that if he disconnects the horn----problem solved, but I am not willing to do that due to safety concerns. He tells me it may end up costing me up to $300 in time & labour for him to find answer

We purchased a 2006 equinox that was in a rollover accident to rebuild it. Someone I think removed a remote starter/car alarm. Can't seem to get the key to start the engine. We have taken a hot wire and started it by applying it to the starting wire to the selenoid switch, but the vehicle only runs for a couple seconds. I also think there was no power to the coil pack.(Had to supply power to that also.) Is there some kind of reset switch to push to restore the power from the ignition or fuel pum

Electric fuel pump will work if removed from vehicle and connected directly to a battery. There are no blown fuses. The relay to fuel pump is OK and power is passing through the relay. There is no power at the gas tank wire connection. Somewhere after the relay and before the pump the circuit is lost. I noticed that there is continuity between the two wires that connect to the fuel pump, and I don't think this is normal. any ideas on this? I'm not a mechanic or have much experience in thi

I need a fuse diagram for a 1999 chevy s-10.I just bought this truck and removed a power wire that was running from an amplifier from the bottom of the truck. Unfortunately, it killed the truck, b/c the wire was worn almost in two. I found a fuse under the hood that was blown and it didn't change anything. Is there an inline fuse between the battery and the starter or??? I need help!

I have a 1995 Oilmobile Aurora. My power windows will not work. I took it into a shop and they told me my Master Switch went out. Is that the real problem? Also my gauges do not work, but they can not find a wiring or fuse problem. They are charging me more because they say they need to remove the entire dashboard to see what the problem is. Would any one have an idea why my gauges wouldn't work???


Yes it sounds like the master switch if no windows work and the fuses are good.\015\012I would think you should pull out the speedo cluster before i took out the whole dash. it could be just a connection or a printed circuit board. ... 1995 Oldsmobile Silhouette
