Using bad wiring diagrams is a sure fire recipe for disaster. Many times these ineffective wiring diagrams are offered free of charge, but the professional mechanic is best served to steer clear of them as they are generally not worth the paper theyre printed on. The best option is always to use a verified and accurate wiring diagram thats provided from a trusted source. A good, established company that has a long track record of providing the most up-to-date wiring diagrams available is not hard to find. In fact, the services that they provide are relatively inexpensive compared to what could happen if a bad schematic is used.
Keep your diagrams near-by. Youll want to refer to them often as you work on your project. Wire Colors: Electrical wiring diagrams that are in color have an advantage over ones that are black and white only. The wires will be colored the same as the actual wires you will be using. Commonly, the green wire is ground, white or off-white is neutral, and black, red or other colors indicate the hot wire. In some instances, such as some switch legs, the function of the wires will be indicated by colored electrical tape. Symbols: When looking at any residential wiring diagram, start by familiarizing yourself with the symbols that are being used.
The electrical symbols will not only show where something is to be installed, but what type of device is being installed. Make sure you understand the symbols on your diagram before beginning your project. There should be a chart on your diagram showing the different symbols being used, much like a legend on a map. For example, a surface ceiling light will be shown by one symbol, a recessed ceiling light will have a different symbol, and a surface fluorescent light will have another symbol. Each type of switch will have a different symbol and so will the various outlets. Youll even find symbols showing the location of smoke detectors, your doorbell chime, and the thermostat.
As an owner of a car, I find myself becoming educated on the subject of automotive wiring. Since I am just about the last person who should be playing with anything that has electrical current running 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 it wanted to me tamper with. When the electric seat belts started to slide back and forth without reason as I drove down the highway, I decided I better figure out how to tamper with the electric systems, considering the exuberant rate of automotive repair.
