on my 4030 soundgard cab the flashers and the rear lights dont always come on the problem is where the power goes into cab i can wiggle the wires and they come on. Not sure what 2 wires it is but you can wiggle the plug and they may stay on for 5 mins or 5 hours what is the best way to solve this problem

I get this a lot on older sound Guards, the gases from the battery tend to decompose the plugins for the cab, the best way to fix it is to replace the harness,,it's not as bad as it sounds. A lot of them come in with wires Jap-Snapped around the plug to keep things going,,a temporary fix..

I had a tractor that had this problem. I pulled the plug apart and tried my best to clean the plug ends as best I could....I think I used starting fluid? Anyway, when I had it as clean as I could get it, I hooked them together and used #1 silicon to cover the plugs so dirt and air couldn't get back inside the plug. It solved my problem. HTHs

There are tools that look like tiny screw drivers to get into the plastic connetors and remove the male and female electrical ends. You can also buy the new ends to put back into the plastic connectors. If the rest of the wiring harness is good, it is much cheaper to rebuild the connector than replace the harness. And it is much less labor. We have repaired many many connectors by just placing the guts (ends)

don't know if they are the same or not, but Radio shack has a lot of those connector parts in their parts bins. May want to take a look. They are Molex if I recall correctly. May or may not work.

Also, Napa sells some of those style parts. Had to build one to make a connector on the Ford F250 to convert it for an exhaust brake a while ago. Basically bayonet male and female that insert into a plug housing.

YMMV.

Repairing the connector end is all okay, but if the wire has turned Green up a few inches past that point, and the rest of the harness is equally in rough shape it is a much better fix to replace the harness, and again it is not a bad job.

My local dealer prints out the diagrams for me- even multi page ones. Color coded so easy to follow. No charge.
