    Default How to source vauxhall connectors? - TPMS

    Hi All,

    I work for an electronics component distribution business so getting hold of electronic componenets is no issue for me, however most of the time I would need part numbers.

    I've been thinking of fitting TPMS to my VXR Estate and to do so I would need additional wiring from the Rear Axle plug to the passenger rear wheel arch which would then be terminated with a connector for the reciever to plug into.

    Accessing and soldering in the connectors to the current plug which is in place (the start of the axle loom) should not be to much of problem. TIS shows me which pins need to go where, however I don't know what typre of wire to use and I don't know who the manufacture is of the plug on the other end nor do I know the part number.

    Looking at TIS the plug for the rear receiver looks different to that at the front of my car..

    Here's a pic of the location (all be it for a hatch - It's pretty much the same in the Estate, I've just nicked this image from another thread!)



    The red square is the rear axle loom connector which i'll just populate a further 2 pins with new wire. I'm hoping the pins are there and just empty rather than needed adidtional crimps to populate inside the connector.

    I'll either try and run this wire inside the current loom protector or ziptie a new one next to it to the location of the rear reciever.. I then just need to correct connector to terminate the two wires with..

    I'll then quickly test the loom with a multimeter before plugging it all in..

    So two questions really :-

    1) What type of wire should be used? TIS states GNYE 0.5 (Green & Yellow) and BNWH 0.5 (Brown & White). So the colour is ok, but what is 0.5 about? How many strands would the wire be?
    2) The connector needed on TIS has a code of ZFW 2-142 - How does this relate to an actual part number from a connector manufacture?

    Hopefully the above makes sense and somone can help!

    Regards

    Pete

    I assume you are in RS or Farnell. Try to grab a catalogue from your counter desk and search for picture, this is faster than using website i reckon.

    Also i have this problem too, try scrap yard or try another plug with same pin count, sometimes they are the same.

    When I did this I added to wires to the loom, it's difficult to fit the new wires in to the protection hose so i put a new one outside and used plastic cable ties. I have a new complete loom laying here so I will change it at some time.
    The crimps will not be in the housing. I both crimps from Wüerth. If you buy new connectors you will get the housing and a tail of wire with the crimp.
    The 0,5 means the wire is 0,5 square mm and you should use multi strands for high flexibility.

    If you have access to EPC you go to WSM workshop materials and select wiring harness repair kit and look for the what you need ZFW2-142.

    I don't have a working EPC

    Can anyone get me the part numbers?? Do you have crimp part numbers you used from wurth? Did you do the same mod?

    If so, did you use wurth crimps to go into the X5 connector (Rear Axle connector)?

    Thanks

    Yes, I know the original part numbers for this item - 13355774 / 1286963 (first GM, second OPEL)

    easy i have millions of them

    you can either use a front reciever plug and just cut 2 of the locating
    lugs on the plug so it fits in the rear reciever slot or you can use the rear
    abs plugs that go on the hubs,both of these will fit without a doubt
    or you can just order the rear reciever wiring repair kit


    then you can make up the relevant lenght of harness and tie wrap it
    along side to the origional harness

    you will also need the correct female pins for the x5 plug which again the
    wiring repair kit for the x5 plug can also be ordered from dealer but expect
    to pay around £35 per repair kit for these and can be costly.
