The Correct Way to T-Splice an Automotive Wire Without Solder

The Correct Way to T-Splice an Automotive Wire Without Solder

Video
https://youtube.com/watch?v=D4b_gSciGIgThis is my method to doing a t-splice (splicing a new wire into an existing wire) without solder. All you need are the wires you want to splice and some quality electrical tape or even better, some heat shrink tubing. Yes, it is better to solder but this method It works great and is strong if you don't have solder. I claim to be no expert electrician, your mileage may vary as well as opinions. Hope this helps someone. You can get a nice hook set here for cheap: http://amzn.to/2DrWqXA Here's the wire stripper that I use: http://amzn.to/2DqINb4 *** Standard disclaimers apply.

https://youtube.com/watch?v=gE1iNeq9I0IAre you reluctant to poke around your car’s fuse box? By design, those multi-colored cartridges constitute the weak links in your electrical system. If something goes haywire, they’ll fail before the rest of the circuit, preventing further damage to your car—or worse, electrical fires. But not everyone thinks to check if they are functioning properly. Hagerty’s Matt Lewis teaches you the simple procedure using the handy-dandy multimeter. And if one is unavailable, he shows you a quick visual test to make sure your wiring is protected.
