Hi,

The brown wire on my CK3 PROBE snapped off today.

I checked an old topic and it says from this pic that I put the brown wire into the PIN 6 slot.




What is the best way to reconnect it? Do I need to solder the tip at the white port and disconnect the whole cable, re-tie the brown and red back together and resolder... or do you recommend something else?

Thanks

Thanks,

I managed to twist the Red and Brown wires together and used a small dot of solder to hold it onto the metal component, slotted it back in and so far it seems to be working ok (I managed to read/dump a benq and when I press the probe button the light cuts off and on).

:)

I've had all 3 wires break, each time I just used a scalpel to cut away a little bit of the black wire going into the plug and applied solder, then soldered the wire from probe connector to that. Then taped it up. Worked for me.
