Part number for Dash Switch Connectors

Hi, Do you guys know I can get these connectors? In the pic, it is pink, yellow and green connectors.

I am trying to relocate all the switches in the dash to the batwing so I can install a 10.1 Inch Android system there. The wires are unfortunately a bit short and need an extension. Instead of snipping the wires and adding more cable, I am trying to see its less destructive to buy three more of these connectors and make an "extension cord".

Are there part numbers for these plastic connectors?

They are not available separately, but only has a complete harness, which ain't cheap. You can try to either match them up with something in the aftermarket, or consider buy and harenss out of a wreck for your purposes.

I just got a 2003 steering wheel and airbag out of a wreck for $200. That guy was asking $100 for the connectors. I thought that was way too expensive. I have asked a couple of people on eBay to sell me the connectors and I will wait to see if they accept my offers. They were selling the switches along with the connectors and bit of the wiring.



I just finished installing some of the dash trims and its starting to take shape. The switch for the convertible top did not require extension, so i was able to connect it as it. The three remaining slots are for the lock switch, rear defroster and a 12V USB output.

I am going to replace the kenwood stereo with a nice system.

I know that I have some, just not sure if it's a complete set. Maybe even the some of the same connectors from a Audi I stripped. I'm at work now and can find them tonight after I get home. PM me a crazy-low offer if you want them.

Just make extensions with terminals
Push the males into the existing connectors and use insulated females on the other end
