    Are you just cutting into the existing wire? sort of taking a spur off it. Or trying to connect to the original wire.

    It doesnt matter which end you connect, as long as you put a male on one end and female on the other.

    From the safety perspective you should fit the female (socket) to the live side so that if the connection accidentally came apart the live wire would not short to the car chassis.

    Just get a soldering Iron and do it properly. I will never use crimps again after a almost fire from one coming off. (and that was using proper ratchet crimpers!!)
