Most people may not know this, but their vehicle’s engine is powered by a system of ignition cables and harnesses. Each time you turn the key in the ignition current is transferred from the battery through to the coil and ignition wires which then light up the spark plugs and causes ignition. Many high-end vehicles use the onboard computer to time the ignition. That said over time the ignition cables can become weak or break off often making it difficult to start the vehicle. You’ll also notice the car idling roughly or an error light up on your dashboard.
As mentioned above the ignition cables and harnesses of all vehicles wear off over time. The overall process of it wearing off is slow and gradual, so it goes unnoticed until it finally fails. However, one of the telltale signs of the cables wearing off is that you’ll have problems starting the vehicle, you may also see sparks or hear electrical hissing. If you encounter any of these issues its best to get the ignition cables and harnesses replaced which are relatively cheap and easy to do. Most vehicles’ user manuals detail how to replace the cables and harnesses.
You always need to buy ignition cables and harnesses which are of the correct resistance, well insulated, made from copper wire and will fit snuggly into your vehicle’s connectors. However, refer to your vehicle’s user manual to get the part number for the ignition cable and harnesses which you can then use to search our website to find the right one.
