Harness Rub in 04.5-06 Duramax LLY

A common problem that we are seeing with the 2004.5 to 2006 GM Duramax LLY engines is what is known as a harness rub. The injectors wiring harness is zip tied to the metal flange by the alternator. The problem being that the harness loom stops too short and leaves just a thin layer of protective material between the metal flange and the wire inside the harness.

Vibrations cause the metal to rub against and through the thin layer and into the insulated wires which ends up exposing the wires.

To prevent this problem with your LLY Duramax, cut the zip tie and cover the harness with more wire loom or a piece of rubber hose or anything else that can act as a protective guard between the metal and the wire. Make sure to zip tie it securely in place against the metal flange.

Are Automotive Dealerships Inflating Auto Repair Cost?

Repairs at dealerships cost an average of 35% MORE than at independent repair shops.

According to Aftermarket Business Magazine, Los Angles County pays an average of 46.8% MORE at dealership than at repair shops.

“People were asking the difference between a dealership and a repair shop”

Overall independent aftermarket manufactures are holding their part prices down to a competitive level. The report does not explain why repairs are more expensive at dealerships but seems to be the notion that the consumer thinks dealers have been able to charge more because they are perceived to have great expertise.

Choosing an independent automotive repair shop you get a better service over all. Lower cost, one-on-one customer service that includes attention to detail and understanding specific customer needs and wants.
