An engine wiring harness is integral to supplying power to a vehicle. It runs electricity from the battery and the engine to the vehicle's fuse box, which filters excess current and prevents electrical fires.

Aging engine wiring harnesses can be cleaned up with the addition of Fire Tape around the wires. Additionally, wiring harnesses can be built from scratch using heat shrink tubing as a loom, temp-shrink tubes to insulate wires, connect to terminals, and help with splicing, and wrapping the finished product in Fire Tape. When building an engine wiring harness, make sure to use either another harness or a harness diagram as a guide. When finished, use a label maker to identify wires and their permanent connections. This is helpful in the event that the harness must be removed in the future.

Engine wiring harnesses are one of the few vehicle parts that are, for the most part, manufactured by hand. The process involves threading wires through flame-retardant sleeves, crimping terminals, using fabric tape to create branches jutting from the loom, and placing clamps or zip ties around strands of wires to keep them in place.
