Re: Wiring Accessories
I spent hours rummaging around the Mouser site for the connector I wanted so that I could use the map light.
I turns out it is called a piggy back push on connector.
The only ones I could find are crimp on. But, I discovered that I can push the plastic insulator of the connector, solder the wire to it, and then push the insulator back over the connector.
The piggy back has a female on one side. The female flat part has an extension with a 180 degree angle which results in a male connector.
I attached my GPS wire to the piggy back connector, stuck the map light female on to the male, and then plugged the female on to the light male.
If you are interested in the piggyback connector I can look up the Mouser part number for you.
