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.

The MAF sensor is located on the air intake plumbing after the air filter. It has some electrical wires attatched to it. remove the electrical wires, remove the screws holding the sensor in and remove the sensor. Replace with new sensor and attatch with screws and re-attach electrical wires. Never touch the delicate wires with your hands.For a detailed explanation with pictures refer to the related links below.

It does not have spark plug wires. It has a coil on each plug. You unplug the electrical connector, remove the hold down nut, and lift the coil off.It does not have spark plug wires. It has a coil on each plug. You unplug the electrical connector, remove the hold down nut, and lift the coil off.

Copper is used for electrical wires because it has high electrical conductivity.

In general, remove negative cable from battery, remove electrical wires from starter, remove bolts holding starter in place, remove starter. Replace starter in reverse order.

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.

Connecting wires in electrical terms is called an electrical splice. All electrical splices have to be made in a junction box.

Silver is not used for electrical wires mainly for two reasons. Silver is too expensive to use and it is a soft metal which is not suitable for electrical wires.

Their high conductivity is why transition metals are used to make electrical wires.

There are several elements found in electrical wires because there are different types of wires. These elements include copper, aluminum, tungsten, and gold.

It can be used in electrical wires. Actually, in the future a lot of electrical wire may be made mostly of sodium. Google "lightweight composite electrical wire".

Electrical wires have plastic covering as when electric current flows through the copper wires and mistake we hold it so we may get an electric shock.

If it is just a Switch, then you can remove the switch from it's location, and remove the two wires going into it, and twist them together, screw a marrette onto the ends of the wires, and tape the marrette on with standard black electrical tape. Problem solved.
