Green flash connectors

Postby qoncept » Tue Apr 04, 2006 6:17 pm

I'm tired of fooling around under my dash.. Does anyone know where I can get both male and female type green flash connectors so I can just plug them in and wire in a switch? Also, the flash block jumper would be nice rather than the paperclips I'm using now.

why don't you just plug them in and wire a switch in on either side of one connector??

order the following part from your subaru agent. part # 24036AA010 - it is a harness adapter set. comes with 3 adapters for the various models.

see .pdf attachment for details.

I have a bunch of the raw connectors coming from Asia as we speak. I'm going to send them out to be assembled and then I should have lots of WRX init connectors. I need to look into how to ship them worldwide cheaply to keep shipping from costing more than the connector!

I don't have enough loose wire to pull them out and don't feel like soldering on my back with the iron directly above my face.. :P

Thanks, Calvin

Glad to see you found them as I couldn't! How many did you end up having to order?

calvin, do you have to order all three of those together, or do you know the part number for the individual connectors? dont feel like spending $20 for 3 connectors when i only need 1. Or should i just get it from tactrix?

it comes as a kit so you have to buy the whole thing. i bought that long before the tactrix ones were available...if you only want a particular housing then buy it from tactrix.

I have the flash block connected all the time. Luckily my car only needs one wire with a couple of spade connectors. I wired my green test connectors up to a switch in the console near the handbrake. I just got some 2 core cable, a male and female spade connector and a on/off switch with a cover so when the cover is closed the switch is off. Took me about 20 minutes to do. Now I can drive my car, log, check logs, adjust map and flash and I don't have to get out of the driving seat.
