Asked by Mar 02, 2014 at 03:28 AM about the 1989 Ford Bronco XLT 4WD

Question type: Car Customization

Due to repeated problems with the ignition actuator breaking and the actuator rod bending, I'm
considering making a push start button ignition system with a couple toggles for accessory power
and EEC/engine control, a button to start the vehicle, 1 hidden switch for security purposes, and an
in-line fuse.

The wires are 12 gauge. How many amps are running through the 2 yellow power wires?

What amp rating hardware would be a safe bet to use? 10a, 20a, 30a, 40a?

12 gauge wire is for up to 20 amps.

The most Amperage I've ever seen on those wires has been 25, but that was a surge amperage, normal runs around 20 amps.
