Having problems with your Dodge Neon ?
Is there an easier way of running down all ur wires...aint their some kindof machine I can use to figure out if my promblem is a wiring promblem???
Nope, at least for finding a problem. Get yourself a wiring schematic for the vehicle and at least you will have the wire gauge & color for each circuit. It does make it much easier.

1999 Town Car Running Lights Not Working... I have a hard wired a flat-4 trailer light receptical that I use occasionally. It has worked fine for me for the past several years. A few days ago I connected to a trailer that was mis-wired and later discovered that the cars running lights (front, rear, side marker and License plate lights) no longer work. I figured I blew a fuse, but I checked and they are all fine. My next thought was I had fried the Lighting Control Module (LCM). I bought a used L
Hello! Since fuses did not blow I would suspect that when you plugged in the trailer excessive current flow may have damaged the LCM...However to install another at random with the same fault is rare...Check fuse #31 just to be sure...Drop the LCM ba ... 1995 Lincoln Town Car

I have a '96 Suburban. Two months ago i started having trouble stating it. It turns over fine, but hesitates starting. When it does start, it seem to be flooding for a few seconds. Then it runs fine. On two occasions, i had to use ether to start it. I have relpaced the fuel pump, fuel pump relay, plugs and wires, distributor cap and button. I have also had two chevy mechs look at it. I cannot figure out what the problem is.

I am attempting to install an after market stereo system in a Ford F150 1999 model. I have, unfortunately, run into a small problem, there are two plugs that connected to the original stereo I bought a connector that was supposed to plug into the exisiting harness but it was the wrong one this unit does not have a separate amp and I am trying to figure out why there are two plugs instead of just one and which wires do I need to use if I just hardwire the new stereo in to the exisiting harness.

Here's my problem...My truck has four wires for my trailer, Red-Brake, Brown- Running lights, Yellow-Left signal and Green-Right signal. My trailer also has four wires, Yellow-Left signal, Green-Right signal, Brown-Running lights and White-Ground. My Question is, how do I get my brake lights to work on the trailer when all the wires are already used up for signals and running lights. I still am left with the brake wire on my truck. Am I able to get brake lights working on my trailer too?

I replaced my OEM sealed beam headlamps with a set of projector headlamps,the HIDKIT replacement bulbs use only one of the headlamp sockets fur power. They use two transformers to power each bulb individually. The problem is that i nolonger have any working daytime running lights. the lights that were given to me use a seprate pin light assy for daytome lights or for signal lights. These bulbs use their seprate power wire for the ballists and two ground wires for the bolbs.

Troublestarting sometimes My 1991 Honda Accord worked great all winter not the weather is warm I'm having some trouble.only happens about every 2 weeks. When it starts runs for a second then won't start. If I remove a plug wire and using a screwdriver in the plug wire and ground it to the motor it will start. I let it run about 15 sec. shut off and reattach the plug wire and then it will start on its own. any suggestions? someone told me it was a bad sensor in the coil. someone else suggested a

I am trying to figure out why my alternator on my 1990 GMC SIERRA 1500 sl. Two wheel drive. 5.7 350. Will not charge my battery. I have had it tested and it passed threebtimes. It has the built in voltage regulator. And the plug only has one wire..I tried to run that wire straight to 12 volt power. And it seemed to work not a day or so. Now my alternator will not kick on again. Where does that brown wire off the alternator run?
The wire comes from the battery warning light on the dash. When you turn the key switch on, the light and wire put voltage to the alternator to energize it. Once the alternator starts charging, the voltage on the brown wire reverses and the light g ... Cars & Trucks
I recently installed a new ignition coil to my 1996 dodge neon .. I was having issues starting the vehicle. Once it was started, it ran beautifully. But it seems when the car sits idle and not running for an hour or more, once i start it, and runs, it stalls within 2 minutes. I restart it, and it runs perfectly. However, this morning it would not start at all. I used a wire tester to see if a spark (charge) was going to the ignition coil, but there doesn't seem to be a charge hitting the wires.
Seems like a resistor or wire leading to the ignition coil may be at fault.\015\012\015\012There's a primary and secondary coil in an ignition coil. And, if the coil isn't getting power, then there's no way for the secondary coil to deliv ... 1996 Dodge Neon

On my 97 grand prix3.8 I have used a jumper wire in place of the fuel pump relay and the fuel pump comes on . But when I plug the relay back in and turn the igntion on the fuel pump does nothing the relay is new and it clicks when we turn the igntion key . So I pulled the fuel pump fuse and use a multimeter to see if there was power where the fuse plugs in and there's is no power getting to it . But when I use the jumper wire I have power to the fuse and the fuel pump runs am I missing somethi

Power windows and blower motor stopped working at exactly the same time.

I need a wiring diagram for a 1983 Dodge power ram 150 4x4. Can anyone help? Motor would crank and run only when the starter is engaged as soon as the key is switched back to the run position from start it looses power and cuts off. Some butcher has been under the dash and hood cutting and splicing, so I figure the best thing is to trace the wires and from one end to the other and fix the butcher's damage.

My 92 Mazda 626 is over heating!!! Help me please, I've been tirelessly trying to find the reason and have found that my radiator fan is not kicking on at all..I tried to run power straight from the battery to the fan to test whether or not it's the relay or fan itself. I've never tried this before so, I'm not sure if I had it connected improperly, the connection wasn't solid enough, or if the wire I used was/is too small to carry a 12v current(I used speaker wire) I really need someone to tell
Check the thermostat because if it doesn't work properly the fan will not kick in as it registers the temperature as cold. A wire directly from the battery to the two connections on the fan should start it running. Be sure to disconnect the fan ... 1992 Mazda 626
I'm working on a 1986 silverado with electrical problems. Heres what i've figured out. They have the small hot wire running from the starter to the junction box near top of firewall on righthand side. Off that same terminal, they have an aftermarket fuseable link tied into two wires coming off the main harness. As soon as you turn of the ignition after it has ran for a minute, the fuse blows. Today, i was checking the fuse while the truck was running with my test light, and the bulb in my testli

I have a 1996 Mercedes Benz C280 that won't start. If I pour gas into the intake it will start and run until the gas runs out, so I would assume the ignition system is okay. I have 50 psi at the fuel rail (drained tank and replaced with fresh fuel), and it increases to 56 while cranking. I have a positive and negative signal at the injector using a 12V probe tester. So I figured it had to be plugged injectors. So I bought a used fuel rail on eBay and swapped it out, but no change, still won't st

I'm wiring two 12volt lights to 12 volt battery controlled by a illuminated 12 volt rocker switch with 3 terminals. I have both lights connected wired parallel to a terminal block. I then run one lead to the positive terminal of the battery with the other lead running to the switch and back to the negative terminal. That controlled the light, but how do I get the switch to illuminate. Please note I'm not familiar with electronic terms. Please use laymen terms

My bronco has a 351m. it will not start unless i advance the timing alot. after i get it running i only have spark to #2,4,6,and 8 cylinders. I Have replaced the coil, condenser, wires, modual, cap, rotor. I used a jumper wire to 12v run on the ignition modual. All of the changes and parts havnt changed anything. To check the timing I brought #1 piston up to TDC on the compresion stroke and all was ok. None of the friends mechanics or parts houses have had any idea what is going on. Please help!
What firing order are you using. It should be 13726548. If you still have no spark on 1-3-5-7 then I would say the distributor is junk. As for the timing, I wouldn't worry about that yet until you get it running on all 8. But it might have a jumped t ... Ford Bronco
