Re: cd player
Willy_g77 said:ok, i took oldopelguys advice in putting in my cd player... he told me to hook up the yellow wire to the fourth fuse, red to any of the three on the farthest from the drivers side(right).
No, the drivers side of the car in America is the LEFT side of the car, that would be the one closest to the wall and farthest from the center of the car, or the "outboard" side for you nautical types. If you look at the front of the fuse box, from the drivers seat, the red wire needs to be hooked up to one of the first 3 fuses on the LEFT, as in "first" like when you read a book. The yellow wire needs to be hooked up to the fourth one from the left, the fuse closest to the 4 nuts on the wall side of the fuse box.
The four fuses on the right side of the 4 nuts in the middle, that is the inboard side, or the side closest the center of the car, are for lights and it makes good sense that if you hooked the red wire there the radio will not work without the lights on.
