  • Patent number: 10807546
    Abstract: The present invention pertains to a vehicular circuit body composed mainly a backbone trunk line portion provided in a vehicle and a plurality of backbone control boxes. An electrical connection path is realized with a structure which is simplified like a spine by connecting branch line sub-harnesses to backbone control boxes. An electrical connection between an engine room and a vehicle interior is performed by arranging a main power source cable and a part of a branch line sub-harness so as to penetrate a dash panel. Thus, it is possible to easily arrange the vehicular circuit body without reducing sealing performance of a portion penetrating the dash panel.
