Do not damage the terminals by moving the inserted tester needle

(c) CHECKING CONNECTORS

(1) Checking when a connector is connected: Squeeze the connector together to confirm that they are fully connected and locked.

(2) Checking when a connector is disconnected: Pull the wire harness lightly from the backside of the connector. Visually check for the following: 1) unlatched terminals, missing terminals, loose crimps and broken conductor wires; 2) corrosion, metallic matter, foreign matter and water; and 3) bent, rusted, overheated, contaminated and deformed terminals.

(3) Checking the contact pressure of the terminal: Prepare a spare male terminal. Insert it into a female terminal, and check for ample tension when inserting and after full engagement. NOTICE:
