Rat ate thru wires coming from harness to tranny. Causeing hard shift from 1st to 2nd. Wires were compromised right at connectors WHERE 3 WIRES GO TO 2? One of the 3 (coming from harness) is uninsulated. Should I include it in splice---i think I know which one of two it would have been with?

IF YOU WANNA KNOW IF 2 CONNECT TOGETHER IN THE CONNECTOR

RUN A CONTINUITY TEST FROM THE "2 SIDE" TO THE "3 SIDE"

"HARBOR FRIEGHT" HAS DIGITAL VOLTMETERS STARTING AT $5-AUTO PARTS STORES ABOUT $20.A 12 VOLT TEST LIGHT $3-$20

I'VE USED A FLASHLIGHT---TURN ON THE FLASHLIGHT, REMOVE THE TAIL END, USE JUMPER WIRES FROM THE BODY---ANOTHER TO THE END OF THE BATTERYTOUCHING THE JUMPERS TOGETHER WILL LIGHT UP THE LIGHT. TOUCHING THEM TO EITHER END OF SOMETHING CONDUCTIVE. WILL TURN IT ON TOO

WAH-LAH! INSTANT AND CHEAP CONTINUITY TESTER!

GIVIN' YOU 3 HOMEMADE PICS OF HOW YOU CAN DO THIS. SORRY, DON'T HAVE ONE FOR THE FLASHLIGHT. IF YOU WANT, I CAN MAKE ONE.I AIN'T SKEERED!

LEMME KNOW HOW IT GOES

SORTA THOUGHT IT WOULD TELL YOU IF THE 3 WERE SEPARATE AND ONE WAS UNUSED

OR WHICH 2 HAD THE SAME CONTINUITY TO WHICH PIN ON THE OTHER SIDE

OH WELL. GLAD YOU GOT IT FIXED!
