Re: fuse relocation

anything can be done with time and money. You'll have to extend every wire from everything other than the tail lights and rear speakers.

Re: fuse relocation

getting that many different colors of wire will be expensive.
Using only one or a few different colors will be confusing as FAK.
best bet is to do one harness at a time marking each wire.
bundle each harness as a group by using electrical tape or zipties.

solder + crimp connectors + shrink wrap.


having your low voltage electronic connections in an area such as the trunk could be risky. Make sure your tail light gaskets are new, your trunk seal is new, spoiler hardware is tight, and your moon roof drains are clear and in good shape.

Re: fuse relocation

i plan on putting it where the jack is supposed to be since i dont have a jack anymore, the reason for checking all the above mentioned is so that water does not com in contact with the fuse box?

you got it man. good luck with this, it's a pretty ambitious project. I hope you have another vehicle to drive, because I see this taking about a week to complete. ... at least a week. After a while your eyes will look like this

Re: fuse relocation

Match the gauge of the wire you're splicing to, or go with a slightly bigger gauge. Never go smaller.

Re: fuse relocation

Wires! I really strongly advise you use more than one color like OGS said. If you only use one color wire, if you ever have to troubleshoot something you are going to hate yourself for not using different colored wire. Believe me, your asking for a nightmare if you don't.

Re: fuse relocation

WOW in the trunk LOL that sounds rough make sure when your running all the wires they are either out of the way of being pinched by anything or put them in the wire caseing sounds like a pain but would be pretty cool I guess ive never seen it but im sure theres a few out there that have and I agree with everyone match up the color and gauge of wire I didnt do that when running a few switchs under my radio and it was a pain in the rear finding out what was what I couldnt imagine searching through all them wires under the fuse box. do yourself a favor go out there to your car look at all of them wires and under the fuse box and see if you still want to do that good luck if you proceed with the project

Re: fuse relocation

Kline tools FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the BEST way to build your own wire Harnesses is in groups.
Say you have access to 8 different colors of wires. Make X number of bundles of wires 25 feet long (or however long you determine you need.)
Use a different color shrink wrap for each group of 8 wires
you can take this a step further by grouping your shrink wrapped pairs into groups of, say, 4 colors of shrink wrap.

Does that make sense? LOL! I can try to draw it out for you...

holy **** that confused me :D, am still getting ideas as in how to make it so i can id the wires for when i need them

Re: fuse relocation

I will draw it out for you.... think of it like an upside down tree.... one tree trunk branches out into smaller trunks which branch out into smaller branches.


And for the Circuit breaker question.. ABSOLUTELY it is necessary. You are passing some relatively hi amperage wires through metal structures and other areas of possible damage/shorting of the wires. Unless you want your car to be featured on the nightly news; use protection.

within 18" of the battery or before the wire goes thought any metal structure; which ever is closer.

Honestly, it's not a good idea. As everyone else has stated - you're talking about removing and cutting every single wire used to control your cars electronics. It's a doable with the right amount of time and patience, but you need to take into consideration how many walls you could come across in the time of an electrical issue. Any wire can short or be damaged, be it by a mouse in your car or nicked upon installation without noticing.

Taking into consideration the size wire you would need for that distance, and the fact that you only have 2 options as far as paths to the trunk - the big question would be: will it all fit?


You could run it along the passenger side, but the carpet will be stretched to it's limits with all that you will be running. For me, the bottom right side panel in the passenger foot-well is barely staying shut with a 0/1 gauge welding cable for my battery relocation and the current existing wires running back towards the trunk. As well as my carpet between the seat and door sill is stretched to where if i needed to put another 2 gauge wire - I would be maxed out for space. The other option is to run it down the center consul, which would require you to either run it under or around your back seat (if you have one) leaving it in prime kicking/stepping spot if you were to have passengers or be back there yourself. Again, maxing beyond the stretching limit of your carpet and being noticeable.

Also take think about how much more heat will be present through the fusebox with the power flowing that kind of distance - even with a thicker gauge wire, I would imagine that's going to put a bit more of a strain on a tiny stock fuse.

As LilMsPrelude said - a breaker is a MUST for this. Anything involving moving the battery will definitely require a breaker - and in your case you will still have one 0-2 gauge wire going to the front of the car for the alternator and starter.


Don't take this as a "no it's a stupid idea wtf are you thinking" just some advice. It's doable, but there's alot more to it than just extending wires. With much more of a chance of an electrical fire. (pack an extinguisher if you go through with it)

If you do it - keep us all posted. It's a unique idea and you deserve credit to be brave enough to act on it lol (even I would be ire of doing so)

Re: fuse relocation

Why?? Would you go through all that work? Is the fuse box really that much in your way down there by your foot?

Re: fuse relocation

If I were you I would just stuff the damn thing up where the pass. airbag used to be and call it a day. I'm still working on de-pinning and re-pinning all of the plugs that feed through the firewall. It takes FOREVER and there are hundreds of ways that it can be messed up.

It's a great idea! Even I started to wonder about relocating my fuse box and ecu to the trunk! It's not worth it! I promise.

Not to take this off-topic, but why did you need to de-pin the harnesses? or do you mean the new ones for the J-swap?

Re: fuse relocation

ok, so yesterday i took the fuse box and unbolted it, taking into consideration what wing8806 i have decide to abandon the project, i really dont like having to put my car in too much risk and also your are right i kind of passed a tube i had around that would resemble the amount of cables bundled up and its noticeable in the carpet so yea, it is a hell of an idea but i will put on hold maybe ill try it but not right now after all, as for the fuse box i believe i got a hook up and just get a carbon fiber lid or the fuse box, the battery will go to the trunk for sure just need to get the amp breaker any suggestions, again thanks to all for the help
