Re: New Stereo headunit wiring questions
Rod- thanks, but I mis-stated in original post about the Pioneer harness, they're not 14-16 gauge: The Ground & Continuous [Black, Yellow] leads are about 18 gauge, while the 'IGN' [Switched] lead, and all others for that matter, are smaller; maybe 22 or 24. [Eyeballed using my wire stripper.]
My logic thinks the Continuous [Yellow] power lead for Clock-Memory, drawing smaller current, should be the smaller conductor, like 22 or 24.
Likewise, the 'IGN' [Red] power lead for AMP-CD-Radio, drawing more current, should be the bigger 18 gauge.
They're sized exactly opposite. Am I missing something here?- [likely basic electrics and electronics].
Also: I looked and I'm already connected to the 'IGN' terminal on the fusebox for my Oil & Water electric gauges. Can the headunit share with the 2 gauges? All others are used too: gauge lights are on 'LMPS', I think the HEI distributor is on BATT, Electric choke on ACC.
