Some people are just dumb
Last weekend while drivin down the fsr from 51 my ignition was cutting in and out No biggie i jumped the coil to the battery and proceeded on. Well today i figured its time to troubleshoot an low and behold Ifind an old wire in the ignition circuit not bein used no more just tied up in a knot and hangin off the firewall shorting out to my head freakin dumbass who did this at some point in time didnt even tape it up not even a dumbass merett (merrets baaaaad but better than nothin).
This wire melted all the way back to the switch coulda been bad real bad in the middle of nowhere.


So tape up your bare wires or you'll let the smoke out!! We all know once ya let the smoke out ya cant put it back in.

Man, I know what you mean, I've had to rewire so much shit in vehicles I've bought and it's not like my standards are all that high...I just use crimp connectors, no solder. I don't get the whole speaker wire thing, seems like every hack job I find involves speaker wire. It also seems that crimp connectors must be a well kept secret since the wires are always twisted together and wrapped with electrical tape, man that drives me nuts. I've got a fresh problem now on my '85 Camaro, at some point somebody monkey'd around with the dome console and the map and dome lights didn't work. I pulled it down today and of course, there's speaker wire and a bunch of electrical tape. I find out that one wire wasn't even connected back to the right wire coming to it, I hooked it up and now the lights work...when the door is open...otherwise not. I'll have to figure that one out another day.

That's my favourite kind of job, vehicle towed in for no start, burnt smell, find complete harness melted into one big mess! Then the fun starts when you tell the customer it's straight time from here on in! :D
