Tech Tip

Wire gauge size

Electrical wiring is rated in size by a gauge number. Unlike most things in life, wire size gets bigger as the gauge number decreases. Normal automotive wiring ranges from 18 to 10 gauge in harnessing and 8 to 0 gauge for charging systems and battery cables. In wiring, it’s better to be too big than too small.

RF Noise

Radio frequency (RF) noise is like sound to a human. It’s invisible but comes from high voltage devices like an ignition coil or alternator wiring. This noise can make signals for gauges change and signals for your fuel injection sensors change. Always try to keep sensitive wiring away from noise producing devices.
