Non-SRS Wiring Repairs: Rolls-Royce

What is a non-SRS wiring repair? It is the repairing of an electrical component that is not part of the supplemental restraints system circuit (usually identified by yellow wire looms). As technology increases on vehicles, so does the number of components that utilize electricity. Many of the sensors and modules are becoming smarter and more sensitive. If the wire is too long, the wrong gauge, or spliced in the wrong location it can cause malfunctions in the components that it’s powering. Many OEMs have different restrictions and guidelines for repairing wiring that does not control SRS components. On the other hand, there are OEMs that don’t allow wiring repairs at all, so full harness replacement is the only option.

Rolls-Royce provides documents to aid in determining and performing wire repairs. The following documents can be found in vehicle-specific repair manuals ➤ Repair Instructions ➤ 61 General Vehicle Electrical System:
