You've opened your workshop manual and, for the first time, you've flipped through to the wiring diagrams. Gulp. It's a seeminlgy tangled mess of interlinked lines going in every direction.
Fear not. These diagrams aren't quite as complicated as they might seem at first glance. Understanding the language of wiring diagrams makes a great first step to untangling the visual knotwork.
We're going to start by defining the symbols. Although wiring symbols are now standardised to a great extent, they can vary depending on the publisher, and more so in older manuals.
It's My Classic has trawled through the most popular workshop manuals of today and yesteryear to bring together a glossary of common variants for classic vehicle wiring.
