June 2012 Randy’s Electrical CornerPosted in How To: Electrical on June 1, 2012 Comment (0)
Hey everyone, it’s me, Randy. I’m here today to show you another way to get power into your doors and a different way to turn on your dome light. I don’t know why they call it a dome light, I mean it isn’t dome-shaped, it sure doesn’t light up a dome, so what’s the big idea? I mean, even in old cars when the light was a simple round disc, it really couldn’t be called a dome. A flying saucer, maybe, but a dome? Or even a plate, I mean those old dome lights look more like the bottom of a plate than they do a dome. Last time I looked a dome was supposed to look like a cut-off ball. I don’t know, but enough about domes, let’s get on to the real show.
What I am really talking about is a neat way to replace your door switches. When you guys remove the doors from your Jeeps there are a bunch of ways to shut that interior light off. But I’ve figured out a way so that you don’t have to pull the wires, or put a spring on the switches, or remove the glovebox to get to a fuse so you can remove the fuse. Heck, they can even be a good way to replace broken, torn, or otherwise damaged wires and keep them from getting damaged again.
