Well, I'm not sure about the colors because you didn't tell me what year model bike you're working on. But, in the earlier models, up to 1999, the power for the start switch came directly off the "Run/Stop" switch. This is designed to keep you from running your battery down because the run/stop switch is in the "stop" position. If you run/stop switch is in the stop position, the starter doesn't have any "fire" to it and it won't turn the engine thereby telling you that you have something wrong. The old Shovelheads had a "Run/ Stop" switch in 1973, when it was in the "stop" position, I saw many batteries run completely down trying to start the bike. Harley rewired the switch so that the "Run/ Stop" switch had to be in the "Run" position in order to get the starter to work.

Good Luck
Steve

My Nissan maxima has 5 wires on ignition switch. how do I hotwire them to make it crank?


5 wires? I can't remember what the fifth wire would be, but you have a power-in wire - white with black stripe. The blue wire is an accessory wire- don't need that. To crank the engine without starting it, you would touch the power wire (white/black) to the start wire-the yellow with black stripe. That would engage the starter.

If you want to wire it to run, you tie the white/black power wire to the run or ignition wire-this is a black wire with white stripe. With those together, your dash gauges and warning lights will be on-the ignition system is ON. Then if you touch the yellow/black (start wire) to the power wire that is tied with the ignition wire, the engine should crank over and start.

Have no spark. Changed coil & CDI box so far. still no spark. Is it the internal coil? 1989 enticer 400T/R


Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, suggested checks on the wires:
  • black of igniter unit tied to ground;
  • orange wire from igniter to ignition coil with pulsating voltage when starting;
  • gray wire from igniter to ignition coil with pulsating voltage when starting;
  • IGN + 12 on red/white wire to igniter and ignition coils from engine stop switch;
  • IGN + 12 on red/white wire to engine stop switch coming from 10Amp ignition fuse;
  • pulsating low voltage from pickup coil between the wires black/white, white/green & yellow/red.
Postback results of above voltage tests.
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa. Happy Holidays.

I hav a 95 berrta and im tying to put a head unit


Hello chrisuftring,

Here's a link to the wiring color code for the '95 Chevy Beretta.

You'll need to match the function of each wire from your head unit and the color code for that would be in your manual. Most aftermarket units are somewhat standard as far as power, accessory, ground, and speaker connections are concerned. But the wiring colors may be different for such leads as remote, power antenna, illumination, dimmer, and muting.

An Alpine head unit has the following wiring colors:
Blue - Power Antenna
Blue/White - Remote
Pink/Black - Audio Interrupt (muting)
Orange - Illumination
Red- Switched 12V+
Yellow - Constant 12V+
Black - Ground
Gray - RF Speaker (+)
Gray/Black - RF Speaker (-)
White - LF Speaker (+)
White/Black LF Speaker (-)
Violet - RR Speaker (+)
Violet/Black RR Speaker (-)
Green - LR Speaker (+)
Green/Black - LR Speaker (-)

With this head unit, you would wire Yellow to Orange, Red to Yellow, Black to Black, Orange to Gray, Blue to Pink, Gray to Light Green, Gray/Black to Dark Green, White to Tan, White/Black to Gray, Violet to Dark Blue, Violet/Black to Light Blue, Green to Brown, and Green/Black to Yellow.

Note that there are 2 "yellow" wires in your vehicle color code. You'll have to test them to determine which one is the accessory wire and which one goes to the left rear speaker. Using a 12V "test light" is the simplest. Connect one side of the light to ground. With the ignition ON probe the yellow wires. One of them should light the tester, the other one won't. Verify that the light goes out when the ignition is OFF and your have separated the redundant "yellows". The one that lit the tester is your 12V+ switched wire and the other one goes to the left rear speaker.

Hope this helps.

Re sent wire diagram gat all messed up


Hi
have we spoke before in previous post?
the red can go to any 12v live peramanent such as wire to clock or other item that has power with ignition off and the same with the yellow if your putting these to the same permanent live say from clock you can join these to together red/yellow to red on clock
the black can go to any metal or neg wire.
This should then have your device working the only problem im looking at for you now is the pink wire as this stops you using the device whilst driving as it goes to handbrake but i need to find out if its live or negative.
You could just wire the red/yellow to live and black to earth then see if it switches on and works if not then let me know and ill see about the pink wire ok
Makes sure you use inline fuses on the live wires so as not to short the device out.
Make sure you know what is permanent live to put the yellow/red wire to.
It doesnt need to be ignition it only says this so you cant use it with ignition off but you can wire it into any live feed from clock or switches so its up to you what to wire it to its just the pink wire im concerned about.

PINK: does it tell you to put it to live or earth on handbrake switch?

let me know ok
