and electricity are not the best of friends and you've got to keep a few
things in mind, especially now when the level of automotive electronics
is on the rise with fuel injection and immobilisers appearing on cars in
to see if all fuses are in order and always carry a few extra ones in
the tool kit.
- All external
wires, if any, (fog lamps, etc) should be properly insulated.
- Make sure
the ignition system, CB points and ignition coil terminals are all cleaned
- Make judicious
use of a multi-purpose spray like WD40 or a similar water repellent
on all critical joints and connections.
- Coat battery
terminals with petroleum jelly, not grease, and check that the brackets
holding the battery down are secure.
that all lights, including the hazard warning, are in perfect working
condition for it is imperative that you are seen by others, especially
in heavy rain.
than this, you should deal with most electrical problems as you would
other electrical components.
