    Daisy chain wiring

    Just beginning to wire up my dashboard instruments to AK,s wiring diagram,they suggest that gauges illumination and earthing can be daisy chained wired however when looking at the gauges its difficult without cutting existing wires to do this.My idea of daisy chain wiring is that one wire runs to say the first gauge, then from the same point another wire runs to the corresponding point on the next gauge and so forth.I could link up all the wires to a single point and then connect the live feed but i don,t think that,s the correct approach.
    Any comments appreciated.

    It really doesn't matter which you do. Whichever you prefer.

    Daisy chaining is a better solution because it will result in shorter overall length of wire and fewer harnesses to wrap.

    Daisy chain will reduce wiring but if the chain wiring fails any forward wired items will not work. If your wiring is sound you should not have any issues with daisy chain . Just use good quality crimps and a good crimp tool.
