You could almost wire the Auto-Module in place just using these pictures.
IMHO…, Scotch Locks have a tendency to loosen up due to vibration, not always but it does happen, as any other lug type application they loosen up and a bad connection appears in its place.
Best way is to strip the sheathing off the main wire, use a standard wire stripper and make two cuts on the wire and cut out between the Stripper Cuts.
Tightly wrap the spliced wire to the cut out, good mechanical bond.
Solder it, clean it and either wrap tightly with a good quality Electrical Tape or use liquid Tape for a water resistant connection.
Now you have a wire/soldered joint that will not come loose, will not corrode if clean well enough and if wrapped well will not short out.
Soldered joints reduce bad connections in the future.
Scotch Locks are great for quick fixes, trail repairs or when time is not on your side but they have elevated them to where they are used to wire in everything.
OK off the box.
