Do I need to hook up the illumination wire?
Do I have to connect the illumination wire? no, not necessary. Some vehicles provide a control wire right in the stereo harness, others do not. The use of it all depends on wether you want the display to dim when you turn your headlights on or not.
Where does the orange wire go?
The orange wire connects to terminal O on your thermostat.
What is the positive dimmer wire?
positive dimmer is illumination. when you turn on your headlights, or parking lights, the units controls light up. Your manual will have an actual break out of what the wires from the alpine are for. Some may not be matching.
What does the blue wire connect to on a car stereo?
One thing to note, most head unit wiring harnesses also have a solid blue wire. This wire is typically for power antenna or factory amplifier turn on, do not get this wire confused with the remote turn on wire with the blue/white stripe.
What does orange wire connect to?
Red or orange wires are often used to provide the secondary phase voltage in a 220-volt application. Always assume that a red or orange wire (in addition to the black wire, which provides the primary phase voltage) is live.
Is a orange wire positive or negative?
Always assume that a red or orange wire (in addition to the black wire, which provides the primary phase voltage) is live. Likewise, is blue wire positive or negative? Blue is Negative, and White is Positive. Orange Sheathing The orange-colored wire sheathing is set aside for 10-gauge wire.
What happens if you dont have a good ground?
If the ground is not connected (bonded) to the neutral, or the system ground is not properly grounded to the Earth, two bad conditions will exist: zero voltage will not have a ground reference, which can lead to irregular and inconvenient voltages that could have a negative effect on equipment, but more importantly.
What happens if you don’t ground?
The appliance will operate normally without the ground wire because it is not a part of the conducting path which supplies electricity to the appliance. In the absence of the ground wire, shock hazard conditions will often not cause the breaker to trip unless the circuit has a ground fault interrupter in it.
