Had This Problem with Connector ?

Recommended Posts

Since I've talked to someone else who had the same problems maybe there are others with an easy fix. Here are photos of the engine temp. sensor and the female connector. I took it apart and now it won't go back together. It goes far enough to make connection but not far enough to latch. The blades look straight and if they make connection they must be aligned. Who's had this problem ? If it looked damaged I would try and source another but it looks O.K. Sorry about the photos.post-55687-0-24176600-1317085481_thumb.jpost-55687-0-61781800-1317085518_thumb.j Is it the connector on the wire or sensor? any Ideas appreciated.

On the harness connector the weather seal might not be sitting correctly so have a close look at it. It's the whitish coloured band deep in the connector housing.

Yes that white thing"weather seal" is only visible protruding just a little on one of the four sides. I think your right but how is it supposed to be? Thanks, Robert.

A point for Mr. Vicary. I took a little jeweler's screwdriver and gently poked around at the weather seal and another little springy thing (for lack of words) that sticks out on one side right before the weather seal. Pushed her back together and it latched. Thanks again to Wayne.

Yes, with the help of you guys all she needs is a good bath and a couple of well washers. I hope to never see that light again. Thanks again to all who helped me with this one, Robert.
