enter image description here Hello, I bought a mp5 player for my car and I didn't find the 20 pin cable for this player. My question is if I could replace it by Dupont jumper wires as the picture shows

    \$\begingroup\$ I doubt those jumper wires have an automotive-grade vibration spec ... I'd be concerned that they'd fall out over time. \$\endgroup\$ – brhans Sep 25 at 19:53

As said by brhans, the Dupont cable is most likely going to fall out due to the vibrations made by a car. One thing you could use to mitigate this problem is to install a proper cable connector. One of these could work: Connector

If you're not willing to use a proper cable connector though, you could always hot glue the Dupont connectors to wherever they need to go. This can give you some protection from vibrations but may not be the best solution.
