Recreate issue (Wire pulled out) A pull system was used to determinate if the terminals can be remove if the lock connector is open .

Pull terminals out of connector with the lock open shows that a force of 205.8N is necessary to remove terminals. Less than with the closed lock, but still is a lot of newtons required.

205N of force

Prevention Red Rabbits are used every shift to assure EOL tester (Electrical testing) correct performance. Two red rabbits were specific defined to detect low terminals for the two suspicious connectors on this wire harness. Process cannot be released if red rabbit fails.

Conclusion Sample returned by customer shows damage on connector indicating destructive force was applied to disassemble connector form terminals. SCT verification shows that removing the connector by applying force will damage connector which is the case on sample received. Connector has two mechanisms to secure terminals; one is the internal lock to engage terminals and the second is the connector secondary lock. Both are address in SCT process as fixture will close the secondary lock “if open” and the electrical test (EOL) is designed to make no electrical contact with unseated terminals (low terminals). The part received has our QR label on it which is evidence the part successfully passed EOL testing. The only factor for root cause is connector condition as was provided with the sample. Based on the above conclusion, and considering only one piece occurrence at customer location, and shorting 14200 pcs quantity whit the customer. SCT kindly request Falcon to consider voiding this non conformance report.
