If it's the first time that I've worked on that kind of car then yes, I still verify all wires. The wiring diagram just saves you lots of time...

ALWAYS test your wires before connecting to them. If you've done the car several times and are confident about the connection because you've memorized color or pin location, then go for it. The wiring diagrams are only a guide, and they are not always correct.

hey guys, when I install the system I would like to use the poi taps instead of soldering. I heard good things about them. That would help on hard to reach area and time. what do you guys think? http://www.posi-lock.com/posiplug.html

Most installers don't trust anything other than strip, Solder, Tape for good reason with an average of 10+ Installs a day and several hundred a year the The risk of failure is to high. For one install on your own vehicle do whatever makes it easier on you. If it screws up its your own car and your own fault.

Well this is off topic, but if it is your own car and the possibility of a poor connection isn't a major concern for you then use the posi taps. However, I would not recommend using them on any of the ignition wires! On signal wires like the brake switch, door, hood or trunk triggers, you could probably get away with the taps. I'm about to finish up my personal vehicle install and all my connections have been soldered and heat shrink tubing used. Some were a pain in the a** to get to, but I know I won't have to do it again. It is really up to you, but the majority of posters here are gonna tell you to solder. Good luck with whatever you go with.

Take the car apart...
Also, we ALWAYS soldier ALL of our connections. A little something we learned when we worked on police cars, ambulances, etc.... Do it once. Do it right.
