ELECTRICAL SYSTEM COMPONENTS AND WIRING
The electrical system can be damaged by broken, bent, pushed-in or dirty pins and contacts or connectors and recepta-
cles mated with the wrong equipment or harnesses. Harnesses improperly routed can also cause damage to the electrical sys-
tem. The following practices must be followed anytime you work on electrical systems.
Tagging Electrical Wires.
Look at part or wire to see if it has numbers, letters or an identification band. Each cable or each harness should
have an identification band. If the identification band is missing or unreadable, tag each cable end termination
before taking out the harness.
Write numbers or letters on tags with pencil. Fasten tag on wire, terminal or part by twisting wire ends. Remove
tag after part or wire is installed. If you cannot tag a wire because it must fit through a small hole or because you
cannot reach it, write down the wire location and terminating point on paper.
After installing a harness, take off any tags that were put on harness cables.
