FAQs

Connector Repair

What kind of solder do I use to splice the connector to the OEM wire?

We recommend a high-quality solder with rosin core and low melting point; one that is specifically designed for use with electronics. You can purchase yours here.

Will the replacement wire colors match the original manufacturer?

Due to the wide range of wire configurations–even within manufacturer and model lines–we cannot offer a matching color configuration.

Most of our connectors ship with high-grade wire (all black) and terminals attached.

When performing a de-pin and re-pin of a new connector, we recommend de-pinning the original, damaged connector one terminal at a time. This will make it much easier to re-pin the new connector with correctly matched terminals.

If you have any questions about a specific repair, please chat with us for details.

I’m looking for a part which isn’t listed on your website; can you help?

We do stock connectors that are not catalogued on our website and are often able to resource many other hard-to-find connectors. Please chat with us for assistance.

Is the connector replacement process difficult?

Are there any connectors which cannot be repaired?

Some manufacturers do not permit repair of certain electrical systems due to safety concerns. For more details, please take a look at our OEM position statements.

Where can I learn how to repair the connectors?

While the process will vary slightly by connector, the basics are usually consistent.

We’ve provided a walkthrough of the core concepts here, and we’ve published a growing list of connector-specific video guides here.

My vehicle has aftermarket systems installed; will it require OEM connectors or something else?

Aftermarket systems may use different connectors. Often, we can identify the pigtail visually if it’s intact, but please don’t hesitate to chat with us for help finding your connector.

I don’t have access to the OEM connector part number; how do I look it up?

Just search by model-year or chat with us for assistance.

My OEM connector is heavily damaged; how can I figure out what the appropriate replacement part is?

While it helps to have an intact pigtail for reference, we can still look it up without one.

If you’ve got a model year and you know what system the connector plugs into, you can search our catalog by vehicle make, model and model-year to get a list of matching parts.

If in doubt, just chat with us or send us an email; we can look it up for you and chances are, we can source it even if it isn’t listed in our catalog.
