I don't know about you - I DON'T ! Every time I make a crimp connection I pull on it to test it. Many times it comes apart! It is just not a good way to make a connection!
All wire connections are made with secure clamping screws. It is more expensive to use the separate plugs but more practical, faster and secure! Industry standard parts are used to insure 100% connections! NASA often uses the same parts!
We didn't skimp on connectors and all you need is a screwdriver to get the job done! FASTWIRE has separate plugs for RIGHT and LEFT side of the car!
Wiring harnesses have been around for over 100 YEARS! Think FORD model T.
Is that what you want in your project?
Our competitors have old outdated technology that is 10 to 15 years old! It works but is NOT state-of-the-art.
OK for some but .........
FASTWIRE® uses components that are cutting edge technology. Most of our component designs are less that 12 months old.
Everything is designed in house and produced on the most modern production lines.
We have the latest technology because we designed it 12 months ago!
You wouldn't buy a flip phone when you can get a smart phone that does everything !
Each FASTWIRE® module has its own fuses to protect against shorts. The system has 18 fuses to protect your investment.
Additional fuses at the battery protect the cables running to the modules.
The FASTWIRE Fuse Center has 8 circuits and fuses for each one!
This table is to help you select the correct wire size to route to the modules. If in doubt - use one size bigger!
This chart is just an overview. Check with the wire manufacturer! Use quality wire!
Caution! Use stranded COPPER wire - NOT CCA - Copper Clad Aluminum wire! CCA is not corrosion resistant.
You can use string to measure all the bends and hard to get to places. Just route the string from the battery fuses to the module following the shortest path. Mark the end. Then pull out the string and cut it and measure the length! Fast and easy!
This tiny board does dual duty. It functions as the interface for switchs but also allows you to test the systen step by step as you install parts of the system.
You don't have to wait to install all the modules to see results! Just hook up the FASTWIRE tester using the supplied standard network cable to the power module. Then you hook up a 9 Volt battery to the tester. Then move the jumper to select the desired function - right/left blinker, high/low headlights, driving lights and so on. Hit the button on the tester - the LED lights up and triggers the power module at the same time! LEDs in the power module shows that the power module is working.
Same for the rear module. Hook it up and test right/left blinker, stop lights, backup lights and so on.
You can test the switch hookup the same way. Connect the 9 Volt battery, select the right blinker switch to test via the jumper. Connect the switch to the screw terminal and then set the blinker switch to the right. If the LED on the board lights up - then you got it right.
If the LED next to the battery connction lights up - it is good.
Last but not least - You can also test the indicator lights without having to install the FASTWIRE command module! Just hook the tester directly to the indicator board and set the jumper and hit the button on the tester!
So you can say that our tester has at least five functions!
Got questions, we have answers. Contact us, we have time for you !
Don't expect to find any corporate suit and tie guys in our company! We are all dedicated CAR GUYS! (Sorry - we are still looking for a car gal for our team!) Just ask the boss how many cars he owns. (Don't tell him I told you to ask!)
But they are car guys and gals too! Our development team has over 130 years combined experience.
We fixed that ! We include a system tester to help you connect the switches and test the power modules. You can test the front and rear power modules without installing the central module and any other equipment ! Cool!
The Switch Input Module doubles as the systen tester. As you progress with the installation you can test each module and even the switch hookup itself!
A wiring harness can't touch our advanced features !
"Impossible is just a word!"
