I'm trying to repair a wiring harness, and I'd rather pin and install a connector than splice into a junkyard pigtail. Does anyone recognize this and know where to find them? There's some serious connector-identifying wizards here.

edit:

I know what the usage of the connector is (camshaft for a second-gen Ford Focus). I'm trying to make my own pigtail for it, so I'll need a blank plug and uncrimped pins. That's what I'm having trouble finding.

That is a Bosch Jetronic connector.

I have a car full of them. (Not just used on Jetronic.)

Automotive companies design most of their own connectors as custom items.

If you can't find one in the form you want, I suggest you buy the pigtail, disassemble the connector, and post pictures of the terminals - you may find a similar terminal more easily than a similar connector.

Keep in mind that the terminal is specific to the connector specifically, and not just the connector design. It's possible that if you disassemble the original connector, and a check pigtail connector the terminals will be different.

If you do need to buy more than a few of these without the connected wires, then use alibaba or a similar parts search engine to find companies that make them, and get a quote. You might find exactly what you need as a pigtail, and they may be able to supply you with the connector parts rather than an assembled version.

I don't know what it is, but it is sold on amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000IYHG00

  • \$\begingroup\$ @insta If you haven't done this already, ask you local auto mechanics and auto parts shops (small mom&pop ones). Browse trough Waytek catalog too. Just an $0.02 suggestion. \$\endgroup\$ – Nick Alexeev Aug 7 '12 at 19:12

According to Google Image Search, it's a camshaft position sensor connector.
