I've had an issue with one of the sensors having a touchy connection that every-time I disconnected it i had to basically cross my fingers for it to work again.

It seems that the time has come for one of the pins as it has broken off, so i simply cut them off and decided I'll just splice them together.
Color to color, as in, red to red, white to white etc, but to my surprise, its still complaining that it doesnt work?
Is there more to this? I'd assume it only make sense to do it that way, i ended up doing it twice as I thought the quick connects I used werent good enough. Used an IDC splice due the wires being so thin, and still no dice.....

Did you solder the two connections instead of taping them up?

I have the pinout at home somewhere i think, best way to check is to use a volt meter for a continuity check. you can do it on a good cable from end to end then on your spliced cable end to end. and make sure the right pins are connected to each other end to end.

I used an IDC splice.
These little guys. Ideal Yellow IDC Connectors (25 per Pack)-85-950 - The Home Depot

As it doesn't require stripping the wire since it's so damn flimsy

Unfortunately I actually don't have a good wire, the other failed many months ago and my rears are the ones without the din connector

did you perchance save the connectors you cut off? if so you can connect them to each other and at least mostly back out which wire on the sensor side of that connection goes to which on the cable side of the connection and figure out the colors that way. I have the Din cables at home, however it was my din cable that was bad so i cut the din connector off the bad cable and soldered it onto one of the ALP extension twistloc cables (basically made a twistloc to din adaptor and used that with a new twistlock cable ... I stripped and soldered mine, wan't too bad.

Luckily I found them in the trash, but now I can't find my multimeter anywhere now -_-

This will just have to wait another day.

Hoping I can fix it to give me more time with them. Not in budget to get new system

My multimeter sprouted legs yesterday when I needed it too!! If for some reason one of the heads is giving you an issue BRD will take the old out of warranty head back and send you a new one with 2 year warranty for $100 off the regular price. Did this with one of my din heads when it went bad.

I mean i only have one working head in the front now. Hoping it will still actually work once I re-do the wiring. Ironically my rears which are 8.8's still work to this day.

Ignore the BRD comment I for some reason switched from thinking about LIs over the thinking about ALP... I have both on my car right now lol

If you send me the gen of head there is specific color pin outs for each.
