Default 2005 camsensor wire harness replacement?

Hello.

getting a P0340 code and i looked at the camshaft wire harness and it appears to have been burned by the engine and now i can see some exposed wire.

what i see is the three wires that run from the connector at the cam sensor run into a large harness.

my question is: can i cut the wire behind the bad wires and replace(splice) with a new harness and connector or do i have to open up the big harness and find the "start point" of the wires

You don't want to do that if all the damage is out away from the main harness. But you should solder and whether proof your splicing. Just section out the damage area. Secure to a safe place so you won't have this again.

Agreed! Just replace the damaged area. Solder and heatshrink are a must. They do make a crimp style connector that has solder and heat shrink built in. Crimp the wire into each end, and then heat with a small torch.

thanks guys!

i cut back just behind the damage area and got some crimps with attached heat shrink on them



i was nervous about one of them because it didnt seem solid but it works amazing! lets hope it stays that way! . im going to buy some shielding to put around the wires and find a spot to attach them to keep them away from the engine block again.
