uses a piece of metal and pinches the wires? am i right? friend tried to explain it...
just wondering...how exactly do you splice wiring? do you have to buy something? i need to splice my wiring on my factory 3rd brakelight onto a new brakelight that will come out the center wheel hole of my full size spare...
sounds pretty easy...thanks a lot for the quick reply....the new light actually already has the connnector...its just a little blue tube...piece of metal inside the middle of it...was wonderin what that was for
i will put some covering over the wires...i just don't want the connection to break...i think the crimped connector with some covering should do nicely.
do yourself a favor for your future electrical adventures, go buy a soldering gun. they are like 17 bucks at home depot or some place like that and solder isn't that much either, if won't loose connection and it just looks and works better. and do the heat shrink thing too.
Keepin the peace.
The difference between sport and combat is that in combat you bury the one who comes in second.
pull the wire covering back on both wires of the new brake light...cut wires off stock brake light... pull the wire covering back on them...insert the 2 new wires in one end and the 2 stock wires in the other and then crimp together...is this correct??
i will put covering over the crimped part to ensure water doesn't touch the uncovered wires...but what about the rest of the wire that already has a cover over the wire...do i need to put any other kind of cover over it? i may put on a cover just two keep the two different wires together and make it look better...i could zip tie the wires together...wouldn't look as good as one solid cover though. don't want the two pieces of wiring hanging and flopping everywhere.
There are many different styles of wire/multi-wire cover. Essentially a tube with a slit all the way so you can slip the wire(s) into it. Most likely place to get 'em would be an auto parts store. Made both in rubber (like an extension cord) or stiff plastic (like you'll see in some engine compartments) made to protect from some heat also. Keeps the wires together, cleaner, and you can secure the cable cover without pinching the wire so bad (when you ziptie).
I'm not gonna go over that......
lets say i have a stock brake light (just an example) with stock wiring...i want to make the wiring longer...could i cut the wiring and get some more extra wiring and splice it to the stock wiring? (in other words...add some extra wiring to the middle...1 splice to the wiring still hanging from the light and 1 splice on the part cut off...to extend and make longer...)
