I have a 1997 Toyota Tacoma with a few lights and I have a wig wag switchbox. I've been told it's harder to hook em up to imports because they have a positive ground. Would I just hook up the ground wire on the switch like any other car? Any helpful tips would be appriciated.

I'd like to know too as I drive a subaru.

This is the wiring diagram. So just hook the red wire with the inline fuse to the negative? I'm clueless......?
talk about being the man... once again, and with confidence, "you da' man Caleb!"
Whoever told you that import cars have a positive ground should be slapped across the face i'm sorry but it's just that there is nothing manufactured anymore with a positive ground system. The last thing that a positive ground was used in was farm tractors back in the 70's. i hope you didnt wire that switch up yet and blow anything out. if you have any questions you can message me on here or email me it's paulfordtruck@yahoo.com.

good luck
Are you positive about that Paul? You sound kind of negative. (Sorry, couldn't help myself).
Yes i am 100 percent positive I'm an ASE cert. mechanic, sorry about sounding negative.
well when i have my 95 toyota pick up i had a negative switched wig wag unit. i got it at galls and all i had to do is figure out what ground wire went to the high beam of light and used that wire and the instructions that galls gave me and it took about 20min to install all of it including running all the wire and the toggle switch in my dash. if you call galls or go to the web site they have a page that tells you what unit will work with your veh
Thanks Paul, I'll hit you up if run into any more problems...
I was making a joke...positive...negative...LOL
Hey Brian, you sound bi-polar... LOL
ok Paul, my best friend and wingman and oh, by the way, an ASE Certified Mechanic... so I have this 1995 BMW 325i with just under 226,000 miles. The transmission is once in awhile doing wierd and noisy stuff when you are slowing down under 20 miles per hour. It kind of jumps when down shifting sometimes. Had the transmission serviced with a change of fluids and filters. Am I dead meat? Do you think rebuilt transmissions are the way to go or one from the factory? Looking forward to your "positive" input!

TCSS, Mike
it sounds like it doesnt really jump that bad and it only does it sometimes so if i was you i honestly wouldnt worry about it until that trans sarts to slip or doesnt shift up plus the factory rebuilt trans is going to break your bank your better off getting something like aamco or jasper it's just as good and it will cost way much less than factory. if you got any more questions feel free to email me
