Test or Inspection
Repair of electrical harnesses is limited to splicing new wires into the harness with
crimp connectors, taping the new wire to the harness, and replacing electrical
connectors. If two or more wires in a harness are found to be defective, notify the
supervisor for repair or replacement of harness. Wires that are not in a harness can
be replaced or repaired as required.
There are many different types of electrical connectors used to attach wires or cables
to electrical components on the vehicle. To install wires in crimp-type connectors,
refer to FM 55-506-l.
