It depends what the wiring is for. Most likely, any wiring in the wheel well is probably for one of the lights. Just to be safe, I would wrap it with some electrical tape and secure it up and away from any moving parts.

Hello,my clock and radio do not work in my Hyundai xg300 the clock fuse blows every time I put a 10a mini fuse in .does anyone know how to fix this ? Thanks in advance.

You've either got a short somewhere or a bad earth.
It may be that an earth somewhere has corroded, or a live wire has chaffed/corroded. This usually happens around bulbs and brake lights, or the earth on the fuse box.

The wiring loom where it passes through the door pillars into the door is another favorite.

You can spend a lot of time looking and trying to find the fault.

The best and easiest option is to ask an auto electrician to identify which circuit the fault is on.

Alternator circuits

These older cars do suffer from the plastic insulation breaking down so dont touch it but take the warning light cable off the alternator and run a new wire to the bulb but be carefull as if you pull the wiring loom then you will get even more faults ,best advice here is to remove the loom ,take the covering off then put it on a big table and a box of connectors and make a new loom its easier than you think

I have a 1993 Celica that ran fine, cut it off and when I tried to start it again it would crank but wouldnt start?

Your ignition module or wires to it are fried. If you keep putting fuses in, you will melt the wiring. Remove the module and using the guidelines of the manufacturer test it. If it is bad, or it is old and you haven't changed it in a while, go ahead and replace it. Before you do, when you remove it turn the key on and see if the fuse still blows. If it does, it is the wiring or something else. My bet is the module.

How do you find the reverse gear wire from cab area; when you put in reverse the reverse lights come on- I need to hook up a monitor to reverse gear...

the switch is on the gearbox ,i wouldnt even bother looking for the other end in the cab unless you find the loom running down one side at the front footwell and you can locate the colour of the wire in this big bunch ,unless of course that as this is a 2011 car it may not have a wiring loom as such but a bus line type system with a transistorised switch in the back like the new F type jag .Happy motoring and leave well alone is my advice

1998 Blazer 4WD A/T engages the starter when shifting from Drive to 3RD...this is not good!

There is a cable chaffed through between the neutral switch and the ignition lead to the starter. Get someone to move the gear selector while you observe where it is making contact with the wiring loom.Disconnect the battery first

My 2005 chevy z71 will go to reduced engine power when pushing on the gas i believe it is the throttle position sensor where is an affordable place to get one?

it sounds me like the app sensor is bad, i dont think tps will cause reduced engine pewer, but app sensor will . u have to replace the trottle body to fix the app sensors uder the hood.
replace the accelleator pedal to fix the app sensors n the cab.
there is a ground wire in the big wire loom behind the intake if u loose ground ull get that reduced power issue i replaced throttle body and accellerator pedle n had the same reduced power few minutes after test drive came back cleared the codes then found a hit on idenafix for ground in the big wire loom ground went to fire wall and was bearly hanging on broke when i touched it fixed it witha crimp on fitting, havent had the code set since

I can nit open my trunk on my 1996 jAGUAR XJ6.

ok, if the key won't open this then the lock is jammed and if you don't want to damage anything, I know I wouldn't, I would take it to a mechanic. The jammed may have been what killed your battery if the valet trunk open was not working it may have been shorted out. There is a way to jump vehicles with the battery in the trunk like that but I am not familiar with it and if the buttin doesn't work to release the trunk it would do you no good anyway. most likely you are looking at replacing teh truck locking mechanism.

Cant find a hole in the drivers side in the firewall to run am amp wire. car is 1988 cutlass ciera. thanks in advance

Look under the Brake Master Cylinder, you should be able to locate the factory rubber grommet which protects the factory wire loom, depending on the accesseries your vehicle has it can be quite crowed to accomadate another large gage wire such as an 4-6-8 size gage wire. You can also on the driver's side floor board carefully pull back the carpet to inspect for a access hole, also if you decide to make your own access make absolutely sure of your location and any potential hazards, wire harnesses , cables, componets, I suggest you disconnect the 12 volt source at the battery , disconnect the negative cable first. Proceed with caution whenever drilling through any sheet metal firewall. You can use a 3/8" drill motor with a 1/8" drill bit for a pilot hole as to use as a guide for 1/2' diameter holesaw. Also to protect your wire loom use flexable wireloom protector and proper size firewall grommet to protest wires from chaffing. hope this helps... Make sure this is fused circuit , check the demands of your components and follow manufacturers requirements.

Chevy silverado keeps blowing fuses

sounds like a mouse has got in and chewed the cables,their is no easy fix from what i can think of but check all the wires and connections in case water has got into it,or snow if your in alaska.its fifteen years old now so its possible that some insulation has broken down or a wiring loom has chaffed somewhere underneath
