Before use, make sure you cut off and/or insulate each individual pigtail wire that you do not intend to use! If you do not do this, you could easily short any number of pins together, causing permanent damage to your vehicle.

Even when snipping off unused wires, be sure that there aren’t any exposed strands that could short to any other cutoff wire or metal object in the area.
