Hey all & thanks for reading my post. My son (he bailed on me) gave me a set of solid core wires (cut & crimp) that he procured from a hi-lo shop where he works. My understanding is that these are of no/low Resistance.I also realize you do not use these wires with elec ign. Since I have no idea how old these wires are, even though they were not being used, can they go bad? Are there any negatives with these wires? Thanks.

I doubt if they went bad on you but we generally use stranded wire in automotive as the solid can work harden and break from vibration.. then we have all kinds of electrical gremlins..Save for when you just need a piece of wire for something non critical..
