ficm hook up problems

I just finished doing some work on my truck 03 6.0 and I had the ficm off. When I went to reconnect it I had a heck of a time getting it too "snap" in. I am pretty sure the connections aren't completely snapped in right now. The truck seems to run and drive fine. Are there any tricks to hooking these connectors up properly?

Makeing shure the little lock tabs didn't get broken during removal
Makeing shure they are lined up correctly when you go to snap em in so you do not bend any pins.

the one tab on the bottom is broken and a couple of the others are really loose. Maybe I will order a new harness.

A short term fix you can use is get you some thin long zip ties, pass them thru the middle of the plug and around the ficm and pull em tight but don't get cazy with it.

This will help keep the plug in tight.

Zip ties are a easy fix and piece of mind
