Wiring Hell

Is there any good sites for learning the basics of wiring? I am a COMPLETE AND TOTAL wiring idiot, but i really want to learn the basics. I'm tired of being able to build rigs, then freeze when i see a green wire looking at me!

The Haynes Electrical Manual is a good book for an introduction to 12VDC systems. The Fuel Injection Manual is also informative as well.


This is Hef BTW.

In a few weeks I'll be rewiring a buddies rig. You bring some and show you the basics, routing tricks, relays, molex connectors, etc.

What are Molex connectors?
I did a search and a quick glance turned up connectors for CPU's and that kind of stuff.

Molex is a general term for a multi-pin plastic terminal in a wiring harness. Generally.

Dam, I thought Rox threw up some tech, shocked the sheet out of me. Well on your way to TDS I see. Too fawk'n bad I'll be in FL.

To properly terminate requires proper crimpers (read expensive).
