Quality control FAIL

Look what I found when installing my lockpick today. This wire on the stereo harness had NO shielding on it. The factory put a bare wire into the harness then wrapped electrical tape around it. Never seen anything like it. I'm screwed to get it fixed too because you have to replace the whole electrical harness to fix it which would mean taking out the entire dash. I threw some more electrical tape on it and put it back. Can't even tell the dealer about it because I am sure they would blame me for doing it. It works though so not going to stress over it. Just thought I would share this.

Re: Quality control FAIL

Mine was the EXACT same way when I took my head unit out to install the lockpic. I was shocked to see it in that condition. What is your build date? Mine was February 2011

Really? That is weird. I figured this for a drunken drug induced Friday factory worker. My build date is December 2011.

Re: Quality control FAIL

I would think the loom is made by another company, as they only assemble the car, not make the all parts. More likely some other muppet in another factory, mode likely another country.

Re: Quality control FAIL

my guess would be there was an engineering F Up and that was the work around rather than buy new harnesses.

enjoy your fiat/

Sadly it's one of those out of sight, out of mind things.

Re: Quality control FAIL

Hmmm... aren't a lot of us having issues with our Nav systems dumping home addresses and such?... I would guess an errant 12V or missing ground could cause problems with all kinds of things.

I'd be curious to know exactly what is going through that connector.

Re: Quality control FAIL

I would put some heat shrink on it rather than re-wrap with electrical tape.
