- Standard Wire Insertion/Ring Terminals: Be sure that all wires are inserted properly to avoid a short or energizing another circuit.
- Ring Terminals: Always use ring terminals with heat shrink tubing to prevent moisture from infiltrating the wire harness system.
- All Methods: Use dielectric grease on the inside pins of the socket housing, as well as on the back of the socket where the harness wires are attached to avoid build up from corrosion.
- Use a foam socket seal for additional corrosion protection when using metal sockets.
