Josh is this somthing that i can do myself or should i take to the profesionals to do?
You should be able to do it, just cut and splice one wire at a time until you're done, and make sure they're in the correct hole, out of curiousity why are you replacing the connector?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
all of my dash lights came on one day.come to find out all the wires were all touching because the plastic port piece was broken.don't know how but it happened.the reason i asked if i can do it is because the wires are all taped off at the ends and basically just hang there.the old piece was thrown away by a mecanic.what is the worst thing that can happen if i happen to get a wire in the wrong hole?

The only thing that will happen if you put them in the wrong holes is the scan tool won't be able to communicate, so don't worry about damaging anything.

 

The wire that was causing you the issues is the pci bus wire that goes in pin 2, if that touches any other wire or ground your pci communication bus goes down and you get the problems you had.

 

As long as all of the terminals are still on the wires you should be able to just slide them into position with no splicing needed.

 

Any other questions?

You got it!!




P.s.
Don't believe all the bad hype about mexico!! Iv'e been here for 7 years and it's been the best move ever!

Aside from getting there it seems like a pretty reasonably priced place to vacation, if I ever take one that is.
