Exclamation Splice Automotive Wires-How to

Splice Automotive Wires-How to

Use a professional crimper and electrical moisture sealant to make quick, solid connections in auto wiring.

Splice automotive wires in seconds
Crimp the connector
Strip the insulation so only the bare wire is inside the connector. Then make a single 5/16-in. crimp on each side of the butt connector.
Cut the moisture sealant
Cut a section of moisture sealant to cover the entire connector and a 1/2-in. overlap on each end.
Seal the splice
Then double it over and squeeze it together with your fingertips.

Crimp-on wire connectors work well if they’re crimped properly (a 5/16-in.-wide crimp) and sealed (usually with heat-shrinkable tubing).
But most cheap crimping tools only make a 1/8-in. crimp, so you’d have to make four of them for a simple butt connection.

Invest about $25 in a professional crimping tool see this(OTC No. 4497 from www.sjdiscounttools.com).

Then buy a roll of electrical moisture sealant see this (3M No. 06147; about $20 from amazon.com).

For Those Who Fought For It...
