Default Quick disconnect fittings for Can wires? - 11-14-2017, 08:22 AM

Hi everyone, I did a search for this topic, but couldn't find anything. Due to various reasons, I've had to remove and re-install my JB4 a few times over the past few weeks, and I'm getting a little bit tired of unwrapping and rewrapping that sticky tape around the wire bundle. I was curious to see if anyone has tried placing a quick disconnect fitting in the JB4 can wires between the module and the big wiring bundle, so it's just plug and play. It seems like a simple electrical connection, but I know it gets finnicky already if the connection isn't solid, so I wasn't sure if this would degrade the signal enough to cause issues.

To be clear, I'm talking about a connector along the lines of this:


Thoughts? I figure if I can't find a lot of info where anyone has done this it might not be the best idea, but I wanted to check anyway.

I did this already on my S63 - just pull back the tape far enough and you should see where the CANBUS wires join together. I just added a spade plug to each join.
