Sheared off from vibration? Usually those wires are grouped together and in a piece of conduit and/or taped especially under the hood.surfstix said:yes we found the other half of the broken wire in a harness the wire is so thin the harness sheared it off just from vibratin poor poor design I've seen bigger wires in remote control cars or smoke detectors.But chevy very rarely changes much I learned that with my diesel P/U thanks for the concern unfortunaately customer svce is top quality but thats as far as quality goes I've always been a chevy guy but starting to look in a different direction hopefully my wifes SRX isn't going to be a problem.
Is it becasuse the 14 gauge wire was oversized from an electrical standpoint or was it sized bigger for physical strength.darkside said:Technology is changing all kinds of things even wire.
I work with thin wires (20 gauge ) being used in places where they where once much thicker (14 gauge ) in applications
that carry the same current loads. The thin wire is just as durable as the thicker wire that it replaces.
