Air Temp Sensor Connector Assembly

The GM air temp sensor (and coolant temp sensor if used) connectors are different from most of the other SDS conenctors in that the wires are pulled through the connector PRIOR to crimping the pins on.

Step 1: Strip the outer sheath back about 1.75 inches and strip off the wire insulation for about .2-.25 inches as below

Step 2: Insert the wires through the connector with the locking tab facing down as below

Step 3: Crimp the pins onto the wires as shown below

Step 4: Pull the wires and pins backwards into the connector while aligning the top blades with the slots until the pins click into the connector as below

Stripping Tefzel Multi-Conductor Cable

Here's a step by step guide to preparing the engine side ends of your harness

Score the outer insulation down to the braid without cutting through the braid

Pull insulation forward

Compress braid downwards so it bunches up

Using sharp cutters, cut the braid all around the cable

Remove braid and strip conductor insulation

Apply heat shrink tubing so it extends over braid junction by about 3/16 inch

Shrink the tubing with a heat gun and label each cable
