The engine harness is typically a large bundle of individual wires protected by a shell of insulation and conduit which helps to protect it from the elements. It is often asymmetrical, with the large end close to the fuse box and becoming smaller as it branches out over the engine. Since the various automobile manufacturers have different engine designs which also change over time, engine wiring harnesses are often unique to the year, make and model of a vehicle. Because of its proximity to the engine as well as contaminants on the road, engine wiring harnesses can degrade and require repair or replacement.
Components commonly connected to the wiring harness include the on-board diagnostic computer and fuel-injection system of many vehicles, auxiliary lights and dashboard controls. The emissions system and similar electrical components also connect directly to the harness, as do turn signals and other required systems. On many automobile wiring harnesses, the connectors and wires that connect these systems swap out easily for quick repairs and replacement.
