Basic Auto Electrical diagrams

  1. 1. ==== ====For all Auto Electrical ====As an owner of a car, I find myself becoming educated on the subject of automotive wiring. Since Iam just about the last person who should be playing with anything that has electrical currentrunning through it, I was hesitant to attempt to tackle the issue of automotive wiring.However my vehicle decided otherwise when it started to randomly select electrical systems that itwanted to me tamper with. When the electric seat belts started to slide back and forth withoutreason as I drove down the highway, I decided I better figure out how to tamper with the electricsystems, considering the exuberant rate of automotive repair.I found myself with a decision to either, break down and spend $100 an hour for a so-called expertto look at it and try to repair it, or I could learn how the electrical system of my car worked.Considering my level of ignorance I probably was going to try to conquer the impossible. After allthe only thing I knew about electrical systems is that AC/DC was a rock band and that dummiesand wiring usually did not get along.However despite my reluctance, I set out to learn what I could about automotive wiring. I quicklylearned that there is a huge supply of information available on the subject of automotive wiring. Aquick search on Google provided me with an array of information. There are many different levelsof sites offering information.Some sites provided a basic overview of the average electrical system of most cars. A companynamed Long Island Customs offered some great basic information. They stated that theirinformation was simply for a basic understanding and not for a detailed explanation of particularmodels. However they actually provide some thorough information on basic systems such as ACand lighting. They also provide some great trouble shooting information.Another site for general information on electrical systems is This educational websiteoffered general programs on electrical systems in their integrated publishing considers itself the leading source of professional diagnostic information. Theyoffer full diagnostic flow charts of automotive electrical systems. Their charts offer both system andcomponent perspectives.I found a great site for individual systems that covered all American made cars from 1985 to breaks it down by system, such as headlights, computer data lines and ACsystems. Their individualized charts start at $5.99. They also offer information on 1960-1984models starting at $6.99. They print the information into an Adobe PDF document and offer rushedservice guaranteed to provide you with the diagrams for your particular car in less than 24 hours.
  2. 2. offers a basic explanation of electrical information in an MS Word document; howeverthey do not supply charts or schematics.Two other sites that I found to offer great information were and provides complete color diagnostics for most makes and models. What I foundinteresting(?) is freeauto will provide you these color automotive electrical charts and all the otherinformation on their informative website for $11.99. They also assist you with basic electricaltheory, electrical harnesses and test offers a CD-ROM that contains wiring systems for every car from 1979 to2009, for only $17.98. They also offer CD-ROMs and instant downloads for specific models ofcars. They only charge $14.98 for this information.I also decided to look around to see if I could find manufacturers manuals that offer automotiveelectrical diagrams for particular makes and models. What I found was that Haynes Auto RepairManuals offer a repair manual for just about every major make and model of car. These thoroughrepair manuals explain every system on particular models in an easy to understand format. I foundthat these manuals offer electrical charts for their models. I found Haynes manuals available atseveral sources including their own website for $24.95 and Barnes and Nobles for $22.95 with amembership. The best deal I found on these manuals was Books-A-Million, who offers mostHaynes manuals for only $16.45.So whether you are like me and you dont know the first thing about automotive electrical systemsor even if you are educated in electrical systems you will find these sources to be of great help. Ifyou still desire additional information you may want to contact your local car dealer or mechanic.For more information on automotive wiring diagrams please visit our site Source:
