Automotive wire such as refrigerated truck cable made by truck wiring harness manufacturers, is a flexible wire with stranded conductors used in low voltage automotive systems. Conductor materials can be copper or aluminum, although Holly sells car wires as multi-ply copper-core PVC wires because they have better durability and current capacity.
The most typical types of conductors used in most automotive applications are automotive crosslinked conductors and automotive primary conductors. General high temperature automotive wiring is ideal for hard-to-install areas under hoods.
The most common wire gauge sizes for automotive applications include 18, 16, 14, 12, 10, and 8.
These are used in car lighting, signalling and car dashboard circuits. According to JASO D611, we provide AV, AVS and AVSS cables mainly for automotive wiring harnesses.
Standard automotive primary wire for 18 specifications. This is suitable for signal lines, but not for high current applications. If you replace that wire with a size 18 wire, it could cause a fire. Instead, you need to match the original wiring size.
