**Update March 2019**

Automotive wiring harnesses are an assembly of wires that transmit power and signals to electronic control units (ECUs), actuators, and other onboard electronics. Modern vehicles have an abundance of electric accessories and components. The primary source of this electricity is the vehicle's battery. A wiring harness essentially distributes both signal information and electricity throughout the vehicle. Components commonly connected to the wiring harness are control units, sensors, and actuators, including the onboard diagnostic computer, auxiliary lights, dashboard controls, and the emissions system, to name but a few.
