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 individuals have been told that the only way to repair or replace a damaged connector was to replace the entire harness, thus leading to extended rental car days/costs, slowed production lines, labor intensive R&I, damaged severity and even total losses.
This doesn't have to be the case. A pigtail should not be cycle time's kryptonite. In fact, it's quite the opposite.
In addition to backordered harnesses, scavenger hunt searches and schematics nightmares, pigtail repairs in the past caused headaches.
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.
