Plug that connects to ignition switch?

Post by @HeloEngineer »

Hi all!

My van got stolen, luckily I have got it back.
They have cut the wiring below the ignition switch to start it. Ergo I require the plug which attaches to the ignition switch. They have cut so close to the plug, there isn't enough remaining wire to crimp to.

Does anyone know a part number for the plug please? Or where I could get one?

Thanks very much!!!

Just replace the terminals - why do you need a new plug? Or have they damaged the plug as well?

I was hoping a replacement plug may have some tails I could splice on to, as there isn't enough slack in some of the cables to reach. Some will be ok, but it looks like I'll have to rewire some of them.

I’ve got an ignition loom with 1ft of cable and the plug

Did you purchase it, or is it salvage?

If purchased, where did you get it from?
