Once you have your fuse tap, the only tools you really need to connect the car radio to the fuse box are a wire crimper tool and a utility knife. If you are installing the radio in a classic vehicle, you'll need a Phillips screwdriver to connect the wire from the radio to the fuse box. Of course, you will also need a fuse rated with an amperage value rated for your car radio. You should be able to find the recommended amperage rating for the fuse in the radio installation guide. Most low-powered radios can use a 20-amp fuse without any issues. However, for high-powered stereos, those that produce 100 watts of power or more. You may have to use a 25- or 30-amp fuse. 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. If there is no available clasp or harness, though, you can use some ordinary electrical tape to secure the new power wire for the radio to an existing wire bundles beneath the dashboard. The only other items you might need are a piece of 12-gauge electrical wire and a butt connector if the power wire from the radio is too short to reach the fuse box.

You may be lucky and just have a loose wire and banging just right on something might get it to fall back into place, but most times electrical problems are not that simple. Vehicles built in the 60s and 70s had very few electrically controlled devices as most things were controlled through a mechanical linkage. In the 80s and early 90s many automobile manufacturers started using vacuum controlled solenoids to operate small things like switches in the engine or the vents on your ventilation system. Since then, just about everything has become electronically controlled and regulated. Most of the electronics in your vehicle will last a very long time and never be changed, but when something does go wrong it can be difficult to pinpoint the problem.

Cars now have literally thousands of circuits. In this article, we'll go through some of the key components in your car's wiring, starting with the wire itself. Then we'll discuss fuses and connectors and see how it all fits together.
By Josselin Amaury. Fuse Box Wiring. Published at Wednesday, January 10th 2018, 21:24:15 PM. Almost everything in a car is wired through a fuse. Fuses are designed to fail when too much current is drawn through the device. This prevents heating of the wires and subsequent melting of the insulation, followed usually by fire!

Like everything else in this world, there are varying degrees of wire quality. For years the standby wire insulation was Polyvinyl Chloride or PVC. Relatively tough, flexible, and inexpensive, it gets the job done, however, PVC is a thermoplastic. And like other thermoplastics like lacquers and synthetic enamels, it tends to oxidize and brittle with age.

The electrical system is a complex but essential part of what keeps your car starting, running, charging and doing the little, but important, things like locking the doors. And while voltage in automotive systems is much lower than say, household applications, it’s still important to enlist the guidance of a professional when making a diagnosis or beginning repairs because many components are extremely sensitive and can be easily damaged without proper training and knowledge.
By Jeannot Ludovic. Car Electrical Wiring. Published at Wednesday, January 10th 2018, 16:15:32 PM. Today’s vehicles are made up of a number of systems working together in harmony. It would be impossible to remove one of these systems (fuel, for example) and still have a car that drives. So while you can’t necessarily say the car electrical system is the “most important,” it does come pretty close — especially as the technology veers toward a hybrid and electric future. Here is a quick overview of electrical system components and a look into how conventional gas engine-powered vehicles use electricity.
By Mathis Camille. Engine Wiring. Published at Wednesday, January 10th 2018, 15:34:54 PM. As mentioned above, the camshaft and crankshaft coordinate their movement via a timing belt or chain. The timing chain holds the crankshaft and camshaft in the same relative position to each other at all times during the engine’s operation. If the camshaft and crankshaft become out of sync for whatever reason (the timing chain skips a gear cog, for example), the engine won’t work.
