pressure and throttle switch and thats a one time thing.  Connectors to the
Brains are not a problem, I think your problems are elsewhere like perhaps
dirty trigger points.  You can take a pair of tweezers and CAREFULLY pinch

seating the connector properly, it takes a little bit of care and watching
how things are supposed to go togeather but you shouldnt be having problems
here if things are togeather correctly.
