Phone Connector behind bat wings
 
Does anyone know where I can get the male version of this plug? It is a great source for tapping switched, unswitched, ground and telephone mute, but I cannot find a compatible connection anywhere and really don't want to have to cut off the connector.

you can do one of three things...

- find the male connector (BeckerAutoSound in NJ used to sell) - overpriced plus you'll still need to either splice into or add connector on other end and locate whatever you are doing w/in the wire length given (< 6" IIRC)

- take a std bullet connector Spread it open enough at the seam to trim a 'smidgen' off the barrel using wire-cutters or tin-snips. Then re-close to smaller diameter. I did this to add a hidden cig lighter outlet and worked great.

EDIT: See 1st attached image as previous flickr image now missing

- use 3m tap-splice or vampire connectors behind the plug on the wires. Sorry no pix but I did this on someone else's car and it also works great.


Here's the pin out in case you need

I made a connector, which is better than scotchlocks, but not as good as the proper connector. I knew it was a long shot!

Thanks everyone!

try this website:
Electrical
let us know the part number once you find it

Thanks Meir, good suggestion. Unfortunately, they carry the same stuf my FLAPS carries, and they just don't line up.

Whats worse, there are even part numbers stamped on the connector:
AMP 1-828819-1
BMW 1 378 134

But I cannot find anything on the web that provides the male counterpart! Frustrating! It would be so nice to find this part as it is in 986's and 996's for sure, maybe more and is a great place to get aux power.

Not my best work but gets the job done.

What pins did you use / where did you get them? I'm having trouble finding pins that fit! Thanks.
