Where can I plug the plug connector/harness side for the turn signal switch?

So just got this 2005 TJ X 4.0L and high beams were not working, turns out the turn signal switch is bad so we ordered a new one. But when we took the plug out of the turn signal switch to test it, we noticed the plug/harness side was fried, litterally. There was a few pins (fog light ones) that actually melted the plug connector, probably why the turn signal switch eventually failed.

Now anyone know where I can get the harness side? Again I dont want the turn signal switch itself, I already got that on order. Wondering if I can buy just the plug part. I know with my Chevy's you can buy the actual plastic plug things (empty of course) and actually pop each pin out with a fine awl or pin and put them into a new one. I forget the major company that actually supplies most of these plugs to the big 3 auto makers.

Attached is the pinout of the plug Im referring to. Let me know if anyone knows where I can get one, cant seem to find anyone that would supply this.

It sounds like you checked the dealer. If it's discontinued next step would be a junkyard or specialized jeep wrecking yard in your area.

When I bought my '99 the plug connector attached to the back of the climate control knob was melted. I couldnt find a replacement anywhere so I cut the connector off (only 3 wires, looks like yours may be more of a job) and broke open the melted connector and retrieved the female spades that were in it. They aren't your average off the shelf spade connectors so I took them to Carquest and they had a perfect match. I soldered the new female ends onto the cut wires and they fit back onto the switch perfectly. Since they're no longer separated by the plastic plug I gave each one a good wrap with electrical tape. Melted HVAC switches are common but I haven't heard of any problem with the turn signal switches.

It looks like you have the factory service manual which will be a big help. Good luck.

I havent actually checked with the dealer, didnt think they would sell me just the connector or pigtail of this, Im thinking they going to try to sell me the entire harness going to the fusebox or something. I also couldnt find a part# on this on the mopar parts website either.

If someone sold me the pigtail of this (the connector with the short say 3-6" wires) that I have to solder on to the existing one, im all for it. I can do that once I source one of these plugs.

Heres a picture of how jacked up it was when we were trying to figure out why the fogs were not working on this jeep, once we took the connector off. That spade connector/wire sticking out, its one the fog light ones, the whole reason we started troubleshooting it and then we opened/removed this plug and thought "son of a... how we going to get one of these"

You can buy just the terminal with a pigtail and cut and solder. The one you need is part number 5183442AA it runs around 65 bucks. Just call your dealer and give them this number.

Man that's a mess. You may be right about the dealer selling only the entire harness. On the west coast here we have a couple of strictly jeep salvage yards. One of the biggest is Scottys Jeep in Fontana,CA. They have a website and ship everywhere. Another in Ohio is Daveys Jeep.

A loose connection or ground could have caused it to melt like that.

The fix I described would obviously be a lot of work with that many connections. I'm sure you'll find the connector somewhere. Good luck.

Dude...... I owe you bigtime. Dont know how you found this part number but that sounds like exactly what I need. Cut/solder is no issue for me, done that many many times on cars and crap. THANKS!!!!

I actually work for a dealer here so I just looked it up. I had to order a pigtail for my Jeeps heater controls. There is actually a website where you can look up wire harness pigtails by vehicle make. So I looked it up there, then ran the number in our system to see if we had one and how much it ran. We didnt, but quite a few dealers do stock them on the list I have.
