Yuk, Pahami Diagram Kelistrikan Perkabelan di Mobil

Tabloid Otomotif, April 2011

JAKARTA – Kalau air bisa meluncur karena slang, arus listrik bisa mengalir karena adanya kabel. Kalau jelek perkabelannya, bisa dipastikan pasokan listrik bakal tersendat.

Kalau sudah begini lampu yang harusnya berpendar cerah, malah buram atau mati sama sekali. Makanya, buat urusan ini enggak boleh dianggap remeh-temeh.

Apalagi jika kamu telah menambah beban listrik di mobil, seperti penggantian atau penambahan lampu. Butuh penanganan khusus agar semua fungsi mobil tetap prima.

Poin penting sebelum melakukan ubahan berkaitan dengan kabel, seorang mekanik wajib pahami diagram kelistrikan mobil. Hal ini amat penting untuk melakukan berbagai tindakan penggantian kabel. Hal lainnya, “Perhatikan sambungan kabel itu mesti dijepit kuat agar tak mudah lepas,” ungkap Ahie, pemilik bengkel Top Speed, Kedoya, Jakarta Barat.

Penambahan beban lampu menurut Taqwa, pemilik bengkel Garden Speed, Cilandak, Jakarta Selatan wajib dijabani pula dengan perubahan ukuran kabel. “Misalnya ganti lampu dari 50 watt jadi 100 watt, kabelnya mesti diganti dengan ukuran yang lebih besar juga,” ungkap Taqwa. Dengan beban arus yang besar kabel juga mesti mampu mengaliri arus yang besar pula.

Understanding the Electrical Diagram of a Car

JAKARTA – If water can flow with a hose, then electricity can flow with wires. If you have shoddy wiring, a ‘clogged’ electricity flow is inevitable.

Once this happens, the headlights which are supposed to shine bright, might end up being opaque or completely dead. It’s also why electrical problems must not be underestimated.

Especially when you add electrical load to the car, for example, replacing/adding light bulbs. To make sure the car still works fine, special tweaks must be made.

The key point before making changes to things related to wiring, a mechanic must understand the electrical diagram of one car. This is crucial for taking numerous steps of wire replacements. Another thing is, “Make sure the wire connectors are clamped tight to prevent the wires from ejecting itself.” said Ahie, owner of workshop Top Speed, located in Kedoya, West Jakarta.

Load addition to the lights needs to be accompanied with wiring changes, according to Taqwa, owner of workshop Garden Speed, located in Cilandak, South Jakarta. “If you want to switch out 50 watt lights to 100 watt ones, you have to switch out the wires with larger ones, too.” Taqwa clarified. With a bigger electrical load, the wires must withstand a larger load too.
