What Is A Fuse?

Posted by Lauren on Dec 2, 2016 12:52:00 PM

What is a fuse? Simply put, it's your first line of defense against a short circuit. 

When a circuit experiences an excessive amount of current flow, fuses heat up and blow to protect the circuit from damage, such as fires. Usually, fuses are found close to the battery in order to avoid battery damage from a direct short in the cables coming off the posts. Often times you'll find one larger fuse block closer to the battery, and then have the circuit branch out further away with additional, smaller fuse blocks.

Fuses function similar to circuit breakers, except circuit breakers are often more accessible. Typically, engineering schematics will dictate when and where you'll need to use fuses versus circuit breakers.

What Does A Resistor Do And Why Is It Important?

Posted by Lisa on Aug 4, 2016 11:30:00 AM

Whether you are fixing your air conditioning, connecting new LED lights, or wiring a relay, you are probably working with a resistor. Resistors can be found in almost every electrical circuit, but they are often built-in to other components. So what do these hidden resistors really do? And why are they so important to the electrical circuits you use every day?

What Is Primary Wire?

Posted by Lauren on Jul 28, 2016 11:43:40 AM

What is primary wire after all? Often times when working on electrical builds, you’ll hear “primary wire” or “GPT wire” thrown around quite a bit. So, why is that? Primary wire is one of the most common types of wire to use in electrical builds – specifically in automotive or DC applications.

Why Should You Choose Painless Performance Wire Harnesses?

Posted by Megan on May 5, 2016 1:39:00 PM

Universal chassis wire harnesses by Painless Performance are the easiest preassembled harnesses to install. All preassembled wire harnesses are not made equally. Just one installation with a Painless harness and you will never use an inferior harness again.  

Advantages of choosing Painless Performance wire harnesses

Less wires to route. During the final assembly of the harness, Painless groups the wires together based on the appropriate vehicle location. Depending on the application the average harness will have 15-18 groups of wires all wire-tied together. Instead of routing over 100 individual wires, you will only have to route the groupings saving you time and effort.
