Automotive Connector Repair 101

Repair vs. Replace: Connectors, Pigtails and Electrical Wire Harnesses


In the automotive repair industry, it happens often (but does not have to): Severity and cycle time destroyed because of the unnecessary purchase of an entire wiring harness.

For years, vehicle repair shops, insurance companies and customers have been told that the only way to repair or replace a damaged connector was to replace the entire harness.

The problems with this approach are many: added rental car costs, slowed production lines, labor intensive R&I, damaged severity and even total loss.

This doesn't have to be the case.

A simple pigtail does not have to be cycle time's kryptonite. Fortunately, there’s a better way. This is where quality automotive connector replacement steps in.

Often, rather than pay thousands of dollars for an entire harness, you can simply replace the damaged connector by a careful de-pin/re-pin or an accurate wire repair.
