The purpose of the fuse box is to stop the electrical current if it becomes to strong, thereby avoiding an electrical fire. The wire harness carries the current from the engine back to the fuse box, usually found under the driver’s side dashboard. When power reaches the fuse box, it is then redirected to the various different electrical components of your car, including back to the engine, to the overhead light, to your instrument panel and to hundreds of other vital components.

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.

Car stereos have eight wires for the traditional 4-speaker system – a positive wire and a negative wire for the front left, front right, rear left, and rear right speakers. Depending on the wiring configuration in your vehicle and the wiring harness adapter we offer, some of these may not be used.

Fusible Links, another kind of fuse, are used in many cars and are almost always found in the wiring harness in the engine compartment. These are molded, single-purpose links in the wire which are designed to melt under extreme conditions (usually a crash which might crush wires together, causing a huge short circuit). Your car's schematic will show their use and location.

On inline engines, a single camshaft controls both the intake and outtake valves. On V-shaped engines, two separate camshafts are used. One controls the valves on one side of the V and the other controls the valves on the opposite side. Some V-shaped engines (like the one in our illustration) will even have two camshafts per cylinder bank. One camshaft controls one side of valves, and the other camshaft controls the other side.

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.

The primary source of this electricity is the vehicle's battery. When the engine is running, the battery is charged by a part of the engine called the alternator. Before it is distributed, the electricity travels through the fuse box, where fuses on each circuit prevent components from receiving too much power in the event of an electrical disturbance. Different wiring harnesses then distribute the electricity to the engine and throughout the vehicle.

Every car's electrical system is composed of a wiring harness that connects various computer, controllers, lights, actuators, motors and switches. This electrical system is intergraded throughout the car to communicate with each part using a central computer which runs the engine or main electric motor. The battery is responsible for supplying power to the car while the engine is not running but in electric cars the battery does all of the work while powering the motor. High amperage circuits are designed with larger components to handle the load without failing. Common maintenance includes inspecting electrical connectors that are visible including the battery cables.
