How to add a Connector
#1
[Image: 9nd4_zpsea5fce57.jpg]

This How to Covers How to Wire a Male and Female auto Connector

This is Really the Best way to join wires
or Add an Accessory that can be Unplugged Easily if Required
In this Case i am Adding Connectors
to my Load Resisters for my LED DRL,S
as this will make Taking the Headlights out much Easier
this will Help with Most Lighting Retro Fits etc.

You can Always Twist the Wires Solder and Shrink Wrap the Wires
if you want a Permanent Connection
But if you need to Disconnect and Reconnect Something Quickly and Easily
then Connectors are Quick and easy to Take apart
and the Best Option.

These are the Connectors i am using
they are Cheep and very Good Quality for the Price
i Payed £3.00 for 10, 2 Pin Connectors.

You can Get 2 pin, 3 Pin, 4 and 5 Pin, etc Versions.

First Thing to do is put the Yellow O ring on the Male Connector.

Pushing it Down till it Clips in.

Then take the Four Wires and Push on the Yellow Plugs
cut the Cables so about 3mm of Wire shows
and add the Pins and Crimp them Down
one Crimp for the Wire and the other Crimp for the Cable
a Dab of Solder on the Crimps will Hold them alot Better
one Side has the Male Pins and the other Side has Female Pins.

Take the Male Connector side
and Add the Female Pins inside
just Push them in till you get them to the End
and then Add the Red Locking Tab to lock them in Place.

Then Take the Male Pins
and Push them into the Female Connector side
till you here a Click and feel they are Locked in Place.

also do a Push pull Test on the Cables on Both ends
to check they are Locked in Securely
and make sure Both Wires are the Correct Color
on Both sides and Correspond Red, Black, etc

Slide and Push the Yellow Plugs into the holes
on Both sides of the Connectors.

And that is it Plug the Connectors together
and then Pull them apart to Check the fit is Correct
over Check them Connect them back Together
and Test that they Work job Done.

I have used these found them real cheap but there isn't much else about unless you buy in very high quantity.

Also mate the yellow waterproof seals should be crimped up at the end of terminal with the wire.

Also should fit sung around the wire.

The way you've done it could allow water in, so keep an eye on it mate.

But nice one mate.

So as Rusty says you crimp the yellow plug to the last crimp
on the pin like this
Then push the pins in to the connector
for a better water tight seal if needed Wink_1
