When I said use solder it came from when I worked in a high end car
audio shop the owner said he would never buy or supply or let any
installer use crimpers!
And in the 4 years I worked for that shop I NEVER saw any of the cars
that we worked on come back to the shop for a short of any kind.
So now on to do I own a set of crimpers yes I do I own a few sets
of AMP crimpes they work good for serten things but when I
work on my own stuff like my Urq or do alarm's I will always solder
all the connections.
Here is a great site on Molex plugs. http://marvin3m.com/connect/ And
like it says:/Connectors improve manufacturing:/
Connectors make it easier to assemble electronic products. They also
facilitate mass production processes.
Not to be a pain but the part that says:
When repairing airbag and seat belt tensioner wiring harnesses, use
only prescribed terminals, connectors and wiring.
Throws me for a loop. As I have never seen a Urq in the US with a Air bag. what year car are you getting your info from?
More information about the urq
