Wire It Right

It is ok to compare prices when you need someone to wire your alarm system, head lights or other electrical devices. However, you must be careful because there are businesses that have very unprofessional workers assisting you. A bad electrical work can cause serious problems that would take forever to get it fixed correctly. Even if you decide to DIY (do it by yourself), it is still better to follow some useful guidelines so you can prevent problems from occurring.


The following pictures are from a bad example. We call it the “bird nest” or “Mickey Mouse Job”. As you can see that all the wires are unorganized and scattered all over the place. The person who did the job might not even know which wire goes where. It was done very unprofessionally that the automatic door lock did not even work with all the wiring that have been done.

Bi is going to show us how to wire it right at “Your Dream Garage Self Serve Garage”. What he did first was take everything out and start from the very beginning. He had the circuit chart ready for reference. All the wires were taped in order to prevent being damaged by other components. He then plugged all the wires into the right spot and secure them onto the main cables so they can be organized and won’t hang all over the place. He did the same thing to the wires under the dash board so they will be organized as well.
