Looking for Rear Brake Connectors Information

Hi,

I'm doing a DIY T tap to the driver & passenger side rear brake.

I cannot find any marking on the OEM plugs

While I'm looking the the endless amount of cad design from Mollex, etc...

If anyone already have the answer it would be appreciated =D

No, just the connector.

It will be a wire-to-wire with a tap on the 12v and the ground (easy to probe for it =D).

OEM from cabin <-> T <-> OEM Rear Light Assembly.

T = 12v and ground to my project.

PS: I have to keep everything OEM untouched, that's why. It's a bit pricier and slower than just tapping on the wires. It is widely available (Rugged Ridge Towing Kit made a tap for theirs), but as a hobbyist its is harder to find the right one.

He wants connectors to go between the harness and the tail light assemblies to achieve a +12V and Ground connection for a project without splicing directly into the factory harness. Kind of like the trailer tow harness does.

For that matter, why not tap into the trailer harness? It does the same thing and can be easily/cheaply replaced if needed.

I did find the lamp side connector at moparonlineparts.com by looking under a 2008 Wrangler - Repair Parts - Lamps & Lights - Rear Lamps - Combination Lamps - Wire Harness.

I would link directly to it, but it would only go to the repair parts home page. Personally, at $34 for each "harness", I'd rather modify a trailer light harness ($25 at quadratec) to fit the intended purposes. Since the Mopar "harness" says it will fit either side, you could move the modified trailer harness side to side or even modify 2 for less than the cost of 2 Mopar "harnesses".

Yeah that's my plan B.

But I want to create a BOM (Bill of Material) for everything.

Also similar connector that I know of (2010 Camaro) are less than $5 a pair in volume of 10 at my local Arrow distributor.

Sometime the challenge is more fun than the end product =D.

Well Mouser (.com) pointed me toward Delphi.

Part #15355297

But its not quite right yet...

I wonder if I call Rugged Ridge, if they would be willing to give me a clue =D.

They make a nice Hitch Kit with a painless T patch which include all the OEM hardware to snap the wiring into place.

PS: Asked Omix thru their ticketing support... which me luck.

Yeah, that's Plan B.

But it would be better for the hobbyist community if we find a source for those instead of wasting money on pre-made harness made in China.

You know, take some control back.

Take a look at this site Mopar Connection Repair Kit

It lists the available connectors which look like the ones you are looking for




Once you figure out the numbers you need let me know I will check price and availability for you

Epic!

So we're talking...
Female - 68052582AA
Mopar Connection Repair Kit
-or-
Mopar Connection Repair Kit
Male - 68032864AA
Mopar Connection Repair Kit
Right now its only 2 of each.

-----

Holy cow! ~$50 each kit

I can understand why.

I think Omix, (etc), get theirs cheap from a subcontractor keeping a few extra batch of connectors for themself.

To conclude,

Mopar: has pigtails for both side, $50 each side.
( Mostly used by body shop for repairs after a crash, cost less than buying a whole new harness and wasting time re-routing everything, at $50 its a fair price, for hobbyist... Well I'm broke =D )

Mouser is a bust: They only refer to the Delphi Female part.
( Quote: Male side is not listed on the Delphi website which usually means its a proprietary part only sold to OEMs through Delphi. )


Arrow: No news.

Newark: No news.

China Automotive Connector market:

While being a mess, Tyco seems to have compatible connectors. But you can only buy them in box of 200, but the price vary from $0.30 to $0.80.

So Plan B it is.
