6800Re: DB9 and DB25 connector replacement solution for Force
- Sep 24, 2010Ray,
I'm not sure how the cables terminate inside the "boxes" but another way to get a free hanging male/female is to simply buy a good m/f extension cable of suitable length and cut it in half. This would mean replacing the entire wire and not just the end. I guess you could do a splice if you don't want to open the "boxes".
The nice thing about doing it this way is that manufactures own ends are generally nicely matched.
I'm thinking the Solectria wires are not shielded anyone know if they are?
Strange that all 4 connectors on your car need replacing.

I can't find "free hanging" male and female, however, so the tech at www.digikey.com suggested a male hanging style and female panel mount style connector. The males would be on the controller side and the females could be panel mounted in a small electronic box (enclosure) for weatherproofing. Here are the part numbers for the male connectors; the corresponding female panel mount are listed under "mating products" near the bottom of each page -
