WIRING HARNESS AND WIRING HARNESS CONNECTORS INSPECTION
Many troubleshooting procedures will instruct you to test at a specific wiring harness connector. Simply
disconnecting and connecting wiring harness connectors can temporarily solve a problem at times. If this occurs,
the likely causes are loose, bent, or corroded terminals, improperly crimped terminals, or improper routing of wiring
harnesses that cause excess tension on the wiring harness or connectors.
Before disconnecting any wiring harness connectors, monitor and record any active diagnostic codes.
1. Inspect the wiring harness for the following:
Broken or burned wires
Chaffing or abrasion on machine
2. Disconnect suspected wiring harness connector and inspect connector body for the following:
Improperly mated connectors
