If so, be sure to insulate and/or secure the ends if they're hot. My
BJ8 harness came with a brown lead for a cigar lighter, which I believe
was an option (my car doesn't have one). Shortly after installation, it
somehow touched ground, even though it had one of the metal/rubber
'barrel type' connectors on the end, and it let the smoke out of a
section of that wire in the harness. Surprisingly, the harness has
otherwise been fine for, oh, thirty years or so.
