Wire Hint

Recommended Posts

I am new here so I am trying to get rid of the newbie rank. I have seen some post about testing wires, most stick a probe in the wire then use tape. Tape does not usually seal the hole. Use liquid tape to seal and corrosion will not be a problem. When testing several wires and you forget which wires you checked use finger nail polish for marking, then cover with liquid tape. One post closer to getting out of the newbie dog house. AkFred

generally I find its better to test a wire at its nearest connection point instead of poking holes. schematics also help reduce that if your just looking for a signal trace.

Heard the newbie rank bothered people I reduced the number of post to enter to a single post so after you made 1 post the newbie rank is lost. Welcome to member status... The Staff listens...:cool:

As for the probing wires... I agree with dracozny I normally probe at the connector. If there is a rubber seal there take a paper clip and straighten out and carefully pick the seal up out of the connector. Now you got access to the terminals... Just use some di-electric grease to re-seal it when done. Here is some of the wiring diagrams... http://mopar.mopar1973man.com/cummins/2ndgen24v/wiring/wiring.htm Edited by Mopar1973Man
