How do you remove or terminate electrical wires?
wires, should never be 'buried', meaning they should never be lost in a wall, etc. you should cap wires off in a readily accessable box. if you can identify a wire, meaning you are absolutley sure a wire goes from a to b with no other connections; i use a method. first i tape a written tag on the wire staiting its' former use, then i wrap tape on the end and fold each wire over and tape it to itself, creating a noose out of each individual wire.the terminated cable should physically be unable to conduct in this format, and the next guy down the road gets to know what you did.

A wire diagram for a Mercedes 190 Ignition switch. A locksmith made a mess of removing the ignition Now you have to rewire it and am not sure which coloured wire connects to what terminal?
Answer RE Wiring for ignition switch the below is for 190 merc (w201 model) hope this is of use to you CIRCUIT 30 = RED 2 CONNECTIONS CIRCUIT 50 …= PURPLE CUICUIT 15 = RED/BLACK CIRCUIT 15R = RED/GREEN CIRCUIT P30 = GREEN/WHITE (SMALL WIRE) CIRCUIT 15X = RED/YELLOW CITCUIT 15T = BLACK/BLUE

To remove the rubber coating off an electrical wire, muriatic acid can be used. Stripping the wire is less caustic to the actual wires, though.
Having done this for many years, the best answer I can give you is: A hot wire can be any color. I say this not only because in the U.S., hot wires are allowed… to be any color except green, white, or grey; But also because you never know what the person before you did. Sometimes they have even used green, white, or grey as a hot wire (illegally). Not only this, but since there doesn't seem to be any standard, a piece of equipment may be using just about any color as well as a hot. Your best bet for equipment is to find the wiring diagram, and for a circuit coming from a panelboard, to use a meter to determine what is what.
On a vehicle, the return path to the battery is through the vehicle's framework. The negative terminal of the battery is connected to the frame of the vehicle. The reason ther…e is only one terminal on the horn is that, that is all that is needed to make the horn operate. Applying the positive side of the battery to the single terminal which is connected to the horn's coil will make it operate. When the horn is bolted to the vehicle this completes the circuit back to the negative terminal of the battery. Apply the 12VDC to the horn by pressing on the horn button which closes the circuit and the horn activates. A horn with only one terminal has its coil grounded internally within the horn. A horn with two terminals has the coil isolated from the ground. On a two terminal horn there needs to be a wire installed to the frame on one of the terminals to make the horn operate.

As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed. Before you do any work yourself, on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances, always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized. IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOB SAFELY AND COMPETENTLY REFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS.
Copper, although it is not 100 % pure, it is still copper. for larger cables you can still get aluminum, but it is much more brittle and you can only work with it so much till… it becomes weak. They also used a lot of aluminum in huses for a short period of time, but now they are back to copper.
Answer for USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hz supply service. Termination of direct burial wire is done as you would terminate any other set of wires. However, direct b…urial does not mean you can direct bury the terminations. The wire must be brought into a building by an approved method; or the wire must be brought into a box designed for burial, with the box accessible from the surface of the ground; or the wire must be brought into a piece of equipment that is partially buried and designed for that purpose. In no case should the wire reach a depth of less than the minimum required depth for the installation without being protected by conduit. And in no case should the wire enter a building without conduit unless installing UF cable is allowed without conduit in the installation.

When the wires are connected to the terminals of a battery what causes electric current in the circuit?
The voltage (V) between its terminals. ~Gabby
To get the electricity from where it came from to where it is going, Just like water piping, gas piping, sewer piping, etc.
A wire terminal is used in electrical wiring. It is used to hold the wires when wiring switches and receptacles. There are different types of terminals including screw termina…ls.
The cut back length is determined by the depth of the terminal. For smaller wire use a length of terminal plus 1/8 th of an inch. Larger wire lug length plus 1/4 to 3/8 ths of… an inch. When removing the insulation use a motion like sharpening a pencil. Don't ring around the insulation because if the copper of aluminium conductor gets nicked the wire becomes weakened at that point. If flexing is involved the conductor will break at that point.
When wires are connected to the terminals of the battery what causes electric current in the circuit?
The energy stored in the chemicals of the battery
