Is electric resistance greater in a short fat wire or a long thin wire?
Resistance is the restriction of electrical flow in a component/wire/etc. If you think of a short fat wire as a short freeway and a long thin wire as a quiet country road then the answer is easy to find especially if you imagine 1 thousand cars all trying to travel the distance at once ...

Asked in Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo
Why does your 1996 jeep grand Cherokee Main fuse keeps blowing when you turn the key on?
The fact that it is a grand Cherokee has nothing to do with it. The fact that you have an electrical short has everything to do with it. Open the hood. Find the battery. Find the red wire from the battery. Trace the red wire and the wires leading off from it until you find the spot where you can see the insulation removed and there is bare wire. Replace that wire. Hopefully that caught it. If that did not catch it,...

How can you know accurately the location of a the broken section of an electrical wire is?
how can I know accurately the location of a the broken section of an electrical wire is? For example if I have a wire of 10 meters long buried underground and somewhere along these 10 meters the wire is broken(short circuited), can I using only one end of the wire know where exactly that short circuit is located along those 10 meters ???? There is a way to do that but I need just the principle of how does it works anybody can...

Asked in Mercury Grand Marquis
How do find a short in the wiring for a 86 Grand Marquis?
First off, you must ensure that it "IS" a short to ground. The first indication is that a fuse is blown, so check your fuse panel to determine if there are any fuses gone. Then, if a fuse is blown, then work backwards with a continuity tester to find the possible break in the insulation of the wire or the section of wire which is creating the short, then replace it Find the appropriate wiring diagram to help trace the wires...
How to extend a wire if an existing wire is short in the junction box?
The answer depends on what type of access you have to the junction box. The wire external to the box may have some slack that can be brought into the box. If everything is tight you will probably have to install one or more additional junction boxes or rerun wire from electric panel. As an example assume that the short wire has no external slack, but you can install a new junction box near the other box and in the path of...
