Why are there two switches on the breakers each marked with an amperage if there are only two wires connected?

Those should both be hot (black) wires to two separate circuits. Electricity flows into the breaker from the bar that they snap onto and the grounds (white and bare) all go to one grounding bar on the side of the box. If you don't know what you're doing inside the box, please put the cover back on and call someone who does know.

SOUNDS LIKE A RELAY.THE EASIEST WAY TO CHECK IS TO POP THE HOOD,LOCATE THE RELAYS,AND IF THERE NOT MARKED,CHECK TO MAKE SURE THERE THE SAME AMPERAGE[MARKED THE SAME ON TOP], AND JUST START SWITCHING THEM AROUND.MAKE SURE YOUR KEY IS OFF BETWEEN SWITCHES.

The earth wire, striped green and yellow, is connected to the terminal marked E; this should be the longest of the three wires so that it is the last to become detached if the cable is strained.The live wire (brown) is connected to the terminal marked L.The neutral wire (blue) is connected to the terminal marked N.

If you have circuit breakers there is a double breaker at the top of the row of breakers marked Main. Flip that one and it shuts the house off. Older houses with fuses have a pull out fuse with two long round fuses in a holder. Pull the holder out and everything is dead. There should be two of these holders in the fuse box. One is the main and the other will be for a stove. The main will be marked Main.

Please follow map enclosed with answer. Follow the light blue arrows, and the switches are marked in red.

Wire a starter.....There are 3 terminals on the solenoid.... 2 Big and 1 little....2 of them are marked on the solenoid (S) and (M) the other may be marked (B)...The (B) is connected to the battery(it's a big terminal) The (S) is a small terminal that is connected to the switch(it will have a small wire)(probably purple) and the (M) terminal will be connected to the starter itself with a short braided wire....

The load current is greater that the amperage of the breaker. Add up everything that is plugged into the circuit. If the total is greater that the number marked on the handle of the breaker unplug some of the equipment.

There isn't one. The heavy positive cable goes directly to the starter. The solenoid is what transfers the heavy amperage to the starter. The wire from the ignition goes to the connector marked s.

Red wire is Positive in a car battery. If they are not color coded, find which one is not connected to the chassis and this will be positive.

The simplest synchronous motor has two leads which must be connected to the live and neutral of the correct supply voltage as marked on the motor.

If a circuit existed where a wire could be made smaller AS the current from a defined source was applied to a defined user then in terms of amperage there would be little change in that parameter. In terms of the Power dissipated as heat through the electrical resistance of the wire then the wire would exhibit a marked increase in the heat expended (Power -watts= amperage- I x voltage -E) . With this in mind and using the same formula as noted the increase in P can only be attributed to an increase in E .To maintain the amperage -I. In short the smaller the wire the greater the voltage must be to maintain a set unit of amperage. In real world projects however the user raises wire size and does not modify voltage to maintain the amperage capacity. This is covered by the idea of calculation of voltage drop in a conductor based on its cross sectional area. From your question let me remind you that amperage is a function of usage and although stated on many devices does not exist until a circuit is closed ..Have a good one Edesigner.

The negative battery terminal is marked with an minus (-) sign on the battery next to the post. It is the one with the black cable connected to it.

Yes, it can be (marked deck, marked man).The word marked is the past tense and past participle of the verb "to mark."

There are 3 switches you need to turn on with your train whistle. You should've received a letter from the guy you saved from the pirates. He numbered 3 places on a map. Those are the locations of the swithces. The 1st switch is up on one of those tall rocks located on the island marked #1 on the map the guy gave you. Blow your train whistle to activate the switches in order.

It is probably in the fuse enclosure on the far left inside portion of the dash. You will probably have to go through the owners manual to see which circuit it is on. The fuses are marked by amperage and I believe by number. Good luck.

yes, it will fill the hole in the panel if you have no blank covers, if you want to be sure it is completely inert, disconnect the power lead and cap it.

Should be under the hood, right hand side in the electrical enclosure with other switches and relays. Take the cover off and the diagram on the inside tells you which is which. In our 2000, the headlight relay is marked HEAD.

In the left side of the glove box there is a hinged cover, tilt it down and the correct fuse will be 4th from the top on the last column. The socket is marked HVAC. There are also some breakers and relays behind the dash below the glove box.

There is a terminal above the drivers side wheel well that is marked for jumper cable connection. You can use this same terminal for connection of the positive lead of your battery charger. The negative lead can be connected to any ground reference - you'll find a bolt near the hood latch marked for that purpose.
