What does Acura say about repairing non-SRS wiring?

Response

Per Honda & Acura: “Wire Repair Policy - If wiring is damaged in a collision, replacement of the affected harness is the preferred repair method. Factory assembled connectors and terminal crimps provide the best electrical integrity.

It is important to note that twisting or soldering wires together and applying electrical tape and/or heat shrink tube are not Honda-approved wire repairs.

Replacement wiring pigtails and connector bodies are also available for many connectors in the front and rear of Honda and Acura vehicles.”
