RE: [DML] Re: Melted Transmission Harness

Someone here can point us to a good heat resistant tape or other sealer
to repair the outer insulation once the repairs/inspection are
complete...  I'd like to know too, anyone?  Good heat resistant
waterproof tape?

Don't panic yet. You may be able to salvage the wiring harness. If you
carefully dissect the melted area, trying to not cut the copper wires,
you may be able to get it going again. It's worth a try anyway, worst
you can do is "damage" it? Cut it all loose and tape up the copper
wire. It probably is not a very long length anyway, just one or
possibly 2 spots. Used ones are always questionable, the venders have
NOS still available, they are just a little expensive. Not as
expensive as having to rebuild your transmission because you drove on
a defective shift computer!
So, you mean to say you haven't been under your car in YEARS!!!!!!
There are a alot of other things you should be checking like the C/V
boots, final drive fluid level, suspension, TAB's, leaks, rust, etc.
