Justin Technician California Posted   Latest   Edited  

Besides wrecking yards and breakout boxes or repair kits from oem is there a way to buy a kit or is there a way to contact harness suppliers to get just a small terminal order ??

I don't think some people are understanding, The package of leads that come with this tool will allow you to connect your scan tool and ecu. Then the transformer into the wall. There are then switches to turn on b+(30), or run position(15). There are 34 leads that come out of a DB25 cable from the breakout box, these are for your component. The rest can be also used as a normal obd2 breakout…

Just looking at the image, you can't tell all of that. It just looks like a Breakout Box for OBDII. It'd be nice if they showed more pictures and gave better details.

Jesse Yes it is an awesome tool, and for the price you can't beat it. Looks like they have upgraded since I got mine. Mine only had a voltage readout, newer ones also have an amp reading below it. They also brag about a “new” K-line protocol, I don't follow. Mine has K-line. must be over my head, or my chinenglish isn't very good. Here is another good example showing it's…

Hi Justin, sorry I don’t know where u can find terminals, also I don’t know if I trust aftermarket. I used to work at a Buick dealership and I have a friend that hooks me up every now and then when I need a terminal. I will tell you that I went to a local salvage yard and ask if I bring three 5 gal pals mark Gm / Chrysler and Ford if they would snip any electrical connectors from cars thats…

Any harness jobs we get, things like SRS we're not allowed to repair, we save the old harnesses in the back room. Last year I went through about half a dozen and stripped them for pigtails, fuses, and relays and put them in boxes for future use.

Justin When I used to build performance vehicles we had the OEM connectors and terminals. We used the OEM crimpers etc. If you can find a performance shop they probably can make what you want. An example is Fuel Injection Specialties in San Antonio TX. Talk to Tracy, she’s very knowledgeable.

Terminals are made by only a few companies. Typically AMP/TYCO, Molex and maybe a couple of others. What you normally see sold are individual terminals. That is not how they are made. They are made by the tens of thousands on a roll feed strip them coiled onto a spool. The spool then goes to the harness manufacturer where the spool is placed on an automated crimping machine. Operator sticks a…

TE Connectivity (previous dba Tyco Electronics) and Molex are major suppliers of terminals and connectors to OEMs. If you're a glutton for punishment you can look through their catalogs and engineering drawings but it's not an easy task finding the female connector, for example, for whatever sensor you're wanting to connect to. I purchase the terminals and connectors from Mouser Electronics…

This place I've gotten some decent prices on hard to find stuff .customconnectorkits​.​com. Other then that mouser, newark, digikey and ebay i use a lot. I build a lot of my own little simulators and testing equipment, wiring and terminal selection can be a nightmare when you work on all kinds of different stuff. I used to put my focus on trying to build one tool that I could test all kinds of…

We buy a lot of used engines that come with wiring harness. We just label them and keep them until we need a connector.

Joe, I just recieved the probes I bought from you. Thanks for sending so fast. In your kit, you have several replacement ends on a tape. Will you share where to purchase them. Or start selling them on your site? I have the large set that aes wave sells, and it is a nice set. The problem is, that the tiny terminals always end up breaking, and unlike you, they don't sell individual…

Hi Mike, You have given me a very good idea! What do you think about having pigtails with the wire color and the terminals attached. That way they could take there existing test lead and cut off the bad end and attach the pigtail. I am going to send you at no charge one of my master kits for your suggestion! Let me know what kit your are using, I may have one of there kits in my reference…
