Pin Connectors for Wires Going To Connectors?

OK...the PO removed the rear turn signals by pulling the wires out of the back of the connectors instead of just cutting the wires. I need to either crimp or solder on new male , pin type, ends on my new wires to insert into the back of the connector block. Hope I'm making myself clear here. Do these come in different sizes? Are these a dealer only item? Help!

Deutsch connectors and pins come in different sizes. You could try the dealer, I think they may have them, if not JP Cycles has them.

How do I assess what size mine are? Do they solder or do I need special crimpers? Easier to just buy new connectors?

Yeah, a new connector would be easier.

There is a special crimping tool, I'm not sure if you need it or not. You may be able to install a new pin with regular wire crimpers, or have a dealer or electrical shop crimp it for you.

There are two or three different manufacturers of wiring terminals. A good automotive electrical shop could probably help you identify, find and install that pin.

2000FiveOh wants to know where he is and how he got here
I took a pair of side cutter pliers and made a crimper. A little dremel work to the cutters and they work great. i always solder the pins even if I crimp them. Dealer can get you the right size pins for a couple bucks. You dont need to buy the entire connectors.
