All hybrid vehicles are equipped with a safety disconnect switch, commonly known as a hybrid safety plug. These safety plugs are used to cut off high voltage from the rest of the system beyond the battery pack when the vehicle is being serviced. Often, the copper contacts of the plug will corrode, creating a faulty electrical connection that could cause a safety hazard. CARDONE's direct-fit hybrid safety plugs are carefully tested and inspected to match O.E. performance.
- All critical areas of the plug are rigorously cleaned to remove corrosion.
- The plug’s casing and locking points are thoroughly inspected for wear and defects prior to acceptance.
- If the unit is equipped with a plug-latching mechanism, 100% testing is completed to ensure proper functionality.
- The internal fuse of each plug is subjected to a conductive current draw test to guarantee peak performance.

CoreWhat is a core? A core is a used automotive part that is returned to the remanufacturer instead of being scrapped. Why return cores? Cores are literally at the “core” of the remanufacturing process, because they are the raw material used to start the remanufacturing process. That’s why remanufacturers buy cores back from customers, and they pay the most for good quality cores. If a core has too much damage in key areas, it may be unusable or require extra resources to process; therefore a reduced core payment may be awarded. This core policy explains potential deductions that may be taken from the core price if certain components are missing or damaged. What is remanufacturing? Remanufacturing is the process of taking used parts, completely disassembling and thoroughly cleaning them, replacing the worn components with original quality components, and restoring them to their original function. Every unit is 100% tested to ensure O.E. performance. Why “reman”? PRODUCTS
Reman captures used, durable goods like auto parts and puts them “back on the road” to new and sometimes better than new performance. Reman provides the opportunity for detection of common failure modes and incorporation of design improvements to prevent repeat failure.
Reman products cost consumers about 40% less than new. Reman products are one of the few “green” products that actually costs less than their “non-green” counterparts.
Reman saves up to 86% of the energy required to build a new unit. Reman realizes Greenhouse Gas savings of up to 25 lbs. per unit over new. Reman saves up to 85% of the raw material required to produce a new unit by reusing existing products. Reman is even more sustainable than recycling, as product castings are preserved rather than melted down to raw material, saving energy and reducing emissions.
