Like Ron, I also recommend adding a connector at a termination point, and I almost always cover my wiring splices with shrink tubing. If you still want to run the original switch, it's probably not capable of carrying enough current for modern needs without seriously limiting the the voltage or burning out all together. If you remember, this second internal busbar is not handling a lot of current. As a result, all of the cavities associated with pin 87A on a 5-pin relay need to be sealed with cavity plugs. I maintained alphabetical ordering of color corresponding to relays one through five. You will also see this noted in checkout. I call it 5 gauge because it measures 4.
So there you are in your purchasing job now finding it necessary to find a decent manufacturer who can supply you with custom wiring harnesses or cable assemblies. If you decide you want to discontinue the service, you can cancel your subscription at any time. The fuse is a definite weak part of circuits to break the current flow that would otherwise cause mischief. With this particular screw and nut size, the nut wedges into place and prevents it from spinning while tightening. It is possible that every fuse in your fuse box is provided with power by 100A cable via 100A relays but copper cable is both expensive and heavy and 100A relays are expensive and rather large so that is very unlikely! After we ship the item,we will email you the shipping information,as well as the tracking number 6. Secure the two busbars together at the ends where the switch harness exits the enclosure.
A is connected to the two sockets above it. Those of you without the 130 amp alternator will not have to worry as much. However, you can save considerable time by purchasing a fuse tap. Halogen free, flame retardant,low toxicity 10. That should be quite adequate for the electrical current expected. Next, we want to mount the two ground busbars.
Both will give you more leeway to install the fuse box tray later on. Slide on the ring terminal, and orient it so that the blade is angled 90° from the surface and facing towards the connector. You may be able to use a wire clasp or harness already under the dash to secure the wiring from the radio to the fuse box. This is what it should look like now. Just use the crimp connector to attach the butt connector and 12-gauge wire length to the power wire on the radio and then secure the wiring to a harness or wire bundle. The switch harness is composed of six wires. Simply insert a Metri-Pack 280 green cavity plug into each of these holes.
With it the older ignition switch can still be used, but now it will simply turn on and off the relay which takes hardly any juice at all. Top view, 18-14 gauge, used to splice one wire to the side of another wire. Then use the Phillips screwdriver to secure the bare wire to an unused terminal on the fuse box. There are several steps involved in putting this enclosure together. Or chances are very good that you can also find that information on the internet. I'm always open to rethink with a logical argument of course, but I still think this is correct: Just pull the 'main' fuse from the piggy back module and plug it back in with just the 'accessory' fuse in place.
Typically, the screw head would be on the side of the busbar with the nut on the backside of the mounting surface. It will work both ways, but one way will result in the current flowing to the dashcam flowing through both fuses in series. The following picture shows where one end of the ground cable is connected to the external busbar. With multiple circuits, it makes sense to vary the color of each wire. They both conduct electricity, are usually made of metal, and both are important to safety.
After removing the fuse box from the car, I found additional melting around pin F5, more than had been seen previously. The intention is to use the A side to tap off power to go to the red wire through a fuse rated for that circuit while leaving the original circuit as it is. You do so at your own risk. As an additional observation, when you slip on the ring terminal to the black wire for the ground busbar, it will look like the following. But at this point, you should know the necessary steps to complete. .
Bundle the three separate wiring harnesses together so that the loose ends are aligned. This is opposite of how you did it before. We are simply putting the cable in place to align the black wire up against the ring terminal to determine what length to cut it at. What is your terms of packing9 A: Generally, we pack our goods in neutral white boxes and brown cartons. That same wire had also been checked while troubleshooting previous failures, with the result always seeming to indicate that the connection was sound. The Weather-Pack connector has labels A-F for each circuit.
You may have to enlarge the hole a bit where alt-battery wire exits the fuse box to fit the larger gauge wire. They can be thermal types that overheat and trigger it to switch off. Do that for the other side of the fuse holder. If you swap the order, all it does is orient the plug in the opposite direction. Basically, I agree with everything you have said here. After making and installing the five fused-only accessory cables, it will look like the following image. Grabbing all nine wires with the ends aligned, slide the braided sleeving over the group, continue until it meets the three shorter sections of braided sleeving.
