The colours vary from country to country.
In the UK and Ireland the colours are
Brown = Live, (Goes to the pin connected to the fuse, on the right if the longer, earth, pin uppermost)
Blue = Neutral (Goes to the pin on left if longer, earth, pin is uppermost)
Green and Yellow = Earth (Goes to the longer pin)

In the USA and Canada
Black = Hot (Goes to the pin on right when the long round,earth, pin is nearest the floor)
White = Return and (Goes to the pin on Left when the round, earth, pin is nearest the floor)
Green = Earth (Goes to the longer round pin)

Does pin placement in 4 pin plug 3 wire stator matter for a 05 HD softail deluxe?


You should have a three pin plug for a three wire stator. What in fact do you have??? AND no, the pin placement does not matter in a three wire AC alternator system but the wires come assembled to pins in a plug so I do not know how you would have them changed anyway OR have four wires.

I have a 1997 Tahoe 350 4wd. I just need the wiring diagram for the trailer hitch. The wires are there but there is no connectors. I have also found the orange and blue wire for doing the electric...


please dont ask me iam colour blind ,but to overcome this i use a multimeter or a little light and test for current this way ,going by the so called wiring colours is a disaster for me not only the colour thing but the wireing can change colours owing to different suppliers of looms in manufacture ,they run out of one colour and use another ?? you name it i think i have seen it

Use a multimeter, and test each wire individually as you turn on/off lights. You won't need a colour code with this method.

Color of wires


Hi Red, Sorry to tell you this pal, but the Toyota's we have worked on do not have a colour coding format for most of the wiring loom. A cable which is loomed from the speed sensor can be one colour going in and another colour coming out because Toyota join cables of any colour, presumably for cost effectiveness. The cable can be identified from the pin number inside the management computer, or by downloading a pin out diagram from <www.allpinouts.com> Regards John.

Convert three pin plug to four pin


These two pictures illustrate the power wiring on a the terminal of an electric dryer. The one on top is the old-style three-wire configuration. Most people have this type in their homes. New code changes, though, require that dryers now have a four-wire cord, shown on the bottom.
Besides the number of wires in each cord, there are two important things to notice. First, in the four-wire configuration, notice that the dryer's grounding strap is folded back on itself. The whole point of the four-wire cord is to separate the ground from the neutral. The green wire (the "new" extra wire in the four-wire cord) is attached to the dryer cabinet. In the three-wire configuration, the grounding strap is left intact and the neutral and ground are tied together.


Sure hope this helps you find a resolution to your delimma! Best wishes.
