Hi all. My brake lights quit working and I trying to find a new pigtail connector. I can't seem to find this on CJ Pony Parts or other sites. I have posted an image below.
Does anyone have any suggestions?


Thanks for any help in advance!

How much do you know about electric connectors? Looks like a wire just pulled out from the contact inside the plastic connector half. You may be able to fix this. But you have to be very gentle with everything. The connector will have some lock tabs, open them up and pull on the plastic to get the halves apart. Find the contact missing the wire. It will either be a round nose pin, or a socket like the end of a pipe. They both have a 'finger' that is bent just a little to catch the plastic to hold it in place. You need to get or make a small lever to push that 'finger' back in and push the contact out the bottom of the plastic. Then solder the wire to the contact. Then just push it into the plastic and it should lock back in place. This can be a pain in the butt. There are special tools made to do this, I have tried them and they just don't work on these old connectors, not the same standards for sizes.

Thanks - I will give this a shot. Thanks again for your idea!
