    I have a western joystick controller w/ white 6 pin connections. Three of the wires pulled loose. What is the best way to reconnect them? I can't seem to push the little rods the wires came off through to crimp the wires back on. HELP!!

    The "rods" that you are referring too are captured in the plastic connector body by little barbs on the rods themselves and you need a special terminal release tool to remove them without damaging them or the connector body. Snap on makes a nice terminal removal tool kit but it's about $60 so it's not really cost effective for you.Do you know anybody with a auto or truck repair shop? They'd probably have the tool.If your in a pinch and you just need to get it up and running you could cut the plastic connectors off and hardwire the controller.
