Hello,

I have looked all over trying to find a replacement connector to my TPMS for my '06 Chrysler 300C. The dealer wants almost $90 for it, and the one web site that I find one at wants $75. I have shopped around and no one has one or is willing to part with one from a wrecking yard/parts car. Anyone know of a secret wire harness company/web site? Here is a picture of what I am looking for, a mouse or something ate through my wiring and didn't leave enough to reconnect which is why I am looking for a new connector end.

The dealer will only sell you the entire wiring harness.
They will NOT splice on a new connector.

Your only other possible source will be the auto wrecking yard. you may have to purchase the whole harness.
SOME places will allow you to cut just the connector/pigtail off.

You could try gently popping the pin out of the connector with a pick tool and soldering the wire back together.

Yeah, I assume most places wont want to cut a connector off when they could sell a whole harness. And I am thinking of trying to remove the pin and repairing it... I need an outside cat to chase these rodents away!

Check RockAuto for a pigtail connector? Not sure if they have it but if it exist, then they probably have it.

Otherwise, you need to get the tool to get the pin out.
I am sure you can probably source the pin only.

When you fix it, slit a thicker hose and put over the cables to wrap it.

I sell pigtails all the time for Ford. MAzda even has them on some applications.

Take the hardshell connector apart and match up the terminal online. That's going to be your cheapest route.

The Ford dealer I'm at now sells pig tail connectors. The last dealer I worked at kept tons of terminals and we would replace those as needed or the pig tail if we could not match it up with anything.

The connector plugs directly into the TPMS sensor, so I am stuck keeping the same connector. I agree and the best route now is to remove the pin and try to solder on some wire. If that cant happen, then I may just need to spend the big money for a OE connector. Rock Auto doesnt stock them.

$90 for that little connector? That seems insane. Even for my old cars, BMW, Honda and Toyota all sell the shells and pins for a reasonable price. You don't need the shell even, just a couple new pins.

FWIW, the wiring diagram manual for my cars is where the part numbers for the connectors and pins is located.

I would use a short length of stiff copper wire to join the break and solder the joint for repair. Shrink tubing would seal the joint.

Try these guys:

https://www.corsa-technic.com/category.php?category_id=47

If there's markings on the connectors or a company logo, that is a clue as well.

Keep in mind, you do need to buy the terminals, seals/glands and crimper separately. Unless it's a complete pigtail.

You should see if Chrysler sells repair wires (like VW & Audi), with the connector already crimped.

Then you can remove the damaged wire, splice in the new wire and insert into the harness connector.

Take the prong out clean it up. Usually tiny flat blade down back from top or bottom will release. Look closely you’ll see which way it bends, then pull with needle nose. Dremel clean with 1” brush my favorite , or by hand. Strip back 1/2” wire slide a piece of heat shrink way up from heat and keep it there . Solder the wire into the pin . Shove it back into the block , If it doesn’t click and lock pull out and bend the tab out a smidge, reinsert. Slide down the heat shrink and shrink with hair dryer / heat gun. You’re done.
Personally I’d wrap that area with tape in case Mighty Mouse comes back for another try. Oh yea, check your cabin filter. You never know he may have dined inside a time or two before you took him for a ride🐀🐁🐀. Snap traps with peanut butter☠️. Never ever Decon / Tomcat or you may take him and his family for many smelly rides.🙊 . Cats are a waste of time , I have 4 far to busy( well fed) to chase mice Cheers2

If you can’t solder find a junkyard and give em a call.

Start here: http://connectors.dcctools.com/home.htm then try https://connectorexperts.com/ both of which have ridiculous prices like you found.

Mouser and Newark are my go to places for connectors but you need to know the manufacturer's part number which isn't usually the Chrysler part number. Probably $2-$3 for that connector. Don't forget to order matching terminals.
