    I'm mounting my radar detector to the mirror and trying to run power down from the map lights, but as far as I can tell with my voltmeter, all the wires except for the green one and the purple one are hot all the time, whether the car is on or off. Any help on which wire to splice into so...

    Hi. I have a 2012 Mazda 3 with SkyActiv engine. Recently I was having trouble with the A/C (it wouldn't turn on). I was hoping it was just low on Freon (I had to get the blower fan replaced before) or just a small leak. Well it turned out to be a bigger problem. Something chewed through the one...

    Hey guys, I'm looking to find the best possible location to put a 0 gauge power wire on my MZ3 hatch manual. I've checked the threads and I've seen lots of 4g and lower but no real talk about 0g. The places where the 4g is in will not really fit 0g. Power steering under the driver side would be...

    OK, I"m assuming this is the wire to the starter that has burned. It is the one connected to the main fuse at the battery. Any idea what could have caused this and why the main fuse would not have burned through first? Main fuse looks OK. This is on a 2010 2.5.

    Hi, I have been trying to figure out where to connect my remote wire for my subs. I have a 2008 mazda 3 with the stock stereo so I don't know where I can connect it.

    First time doing any audio work and i already regret trying to upgrade over the stock radio (car audio is not my thing). While in the process of installing my new head unit, i yanked too hard on the radio connector and as a result, one the of the wires came loose from the pin. There is no way to...

    Just a quick question. I am trying to install a powered sub, and im searching for a hole through the firewall to rout the power wire through.
