The wire harness that connect to the coolant sensor snap off. I think it's call the pigtail. Anyone have any clue how i could fix that or replace it?

You're more than likely going to have to source one from any 6-bolt 4G63 (turbo or non-turbo). I'm not too sure about a 7-bolt sensor plug or pigtail working.

Just cut about 6" of wire off and solder the new pigtail to the wire.

Splice in a new connector. If you look around a junker's wireing harness, there are several connectors that will work.

From a thread of mine several months ago: "The rear speakers in GVR4/DSM use the same pigtail as the coolant sensor."

If you have factory speakers in the back of your car. The plug is the same,just remember to cut enough to solder it back and use female connecters to put the wires back to the speakers

This has happened to me before and I didn't have a spare pigtail handy. I believe there is a way to remove the metal from the plastic, no? And then run the wire through, crimp it and pull the metal back into the plastic housing. ??

Sleeper, I'll get you a pigtail in the mail today.

If you need the car, Sammis trick will work, and then you can replace the speaker pigtail with what I'm sending you. (Be sure to reconnect/isolate the speaker wire ends, and don't let them touch bare metal, or you'll pop one of the output stages of your head unit or amp.)



the bitterness of low quality remains long after the temporary joy of a low price has faded
