Connector to car's accelerator pedal

I'm trying to find the connector used for my vehicle's accelerator pedal.

Are there any strategies for finding connectors like this?

    \$\begingroup\$ Do a parametric search on one of the distributor websites. If you narrow it down by pin count, pitch, features (locking, shrouded, sealed etc.) you may only have a couple of hundred pics to look through. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ That was a great suggestion, this looks like it might be similar, the holes look a little big based on the diagram though, I haven't pulled out my own connector to see what the exact measurements yet: mouser.com/ProductDetail/Aptiv-formerly-Delphi/… \$\endgroup\$ Commented May 1, 2019 at 17:06
  • \$\begingroup\$ Looks automotive to me... \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ I found it by focusing on the application instead of the actual connector, just searched "mazda accelerator connector" and found this aliexpress.com/item/… \$\endgroup\$ Commented May 1, 2019 at 17:30

This is a proprietary automotive connector. It might be possible that the same connector is shared among different vehicles within the same automotive group, or regional group. The best strategy is to look in service manuals and identify manufacturer's spare part number. Next best strategy is junk yard.
