MAP sensor connectors

Has anyone been able to find a source for the male & female connectors for the map sensor? Or at least the part numbers for these connectors? Looking to rig up a diode install in between the map sensor and the stock wiring harness without having to hack up the stock lines.

Re: MAP sensor connectors (viper_chan)

Here are a few pics of the map sensor connector and wiring harness borrowed from <nebulight>...

You can get the female end and the pins through the dealer....just a few bucks. Since the male end is part of the sensor you will most like have to have it made unless you can find and other plug that is will cross with.

I believe I tried to look for it but I can't remember. If someone can post the PN for the connecter end I can try looking it up in ETKA again later today.

Re: MAP sensor connectors (evilpat)

Found this on another thread...Can someone confirm this?

Re: MAP sensor connectors (nebulight)

Found the female connector (#1J0973704) over at ImpexFAP.com for $3.31
Anyone know if the male connector attached to the MAP sensor is a standard type of connector, or is it a proprietary vw/audi connector?

I tried to do something like that, but couldn't find the male connection. Something could easily be made.

Re: MAP sensor connectors (nebulight)

Well. 1J0 973 704 does not have a male counter part listed that I could find. But there is a very similar looking part 1J0 973 724 has one that is 1J0 973 824. It appears that it is a water proof connector that could be used in the engine bay.
724 uses 1mm wires 000 979 133 (or 000 979 133 A)
824 uses 1mm wires 000 979 134 (or 000 979 134 A)
the "A" usual signifies hi temp/chemical jacket.
While that connecter will definitely NOT mate with the MAP connector you could splice it in for an OEM apperance. The MAP connector uses 1.5mm blades while the part I listed uses 2.8mm blades.

Have any pics of the parts listed above?

If someone starts making this with different diode setups, I am sure they could be very profitable.

Only what is listed in ETKA which is not going to be very helpful as the connectors looks identical, but the description details the difference in the blade size.

Re: MAP sensor connectors (evilpat)

If the exterior housing of part #1J0-973-824 is the same as the connector of the MAP sensor, then all we would need to do is modify the blade size of the pins & maybe adjust the spacing between the pins as well.

Re: MAP sensor connectors (viper_chan)

usually the entire housing is different to accomodate the larger blade size. But you'll never know unless you give it a try http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I guess I'll volunteer to order one and see how that goes...

If I'm going to be ordering wires for these connectors, should I just go with the "A" versions? Did a quick check with ImpexFAP.com and they are about the same price as the regular wires.

Re: MAP sensor connectors (viper_chan)

Just a quick little update...finally got the various connectors & wires I ordered from http://ImpexFAP.com. Unfortunately, none of the connectors I ordered are a direct fit with the MAP Sensor connector, but there is 1 connector I got that looks promising. With a little hacking, I think I will be able to rig up something that will work as a plug & play diode solution.
I'll post more details when I have more time to work on my project....most likely after the end of June.

Initial Prototype Progress...

I finally made some progress on my initial prototype....not quite ready for testing, but close...
Here are some pics of my progress so far:
Flat 3-contact housing (Male) #1J0 973 803



Hi-temp Wiring (Male) #000 979 134


Hi-temp Wiring (Female) #000 979 131A


Used needle nose pliers to rip out internal pieces of #1J0 973 803


Used file to reduce #1J0 973 803 length by a few mm.


#1J0 973 803 with internals removed & filed down in length


#1J0 973 803 drilled out using 2/32" drill bit.


3-contact housing (#1J0 973 803) & MAP Sensor connector (#1J0 973 704) fitting together nicely.








I still need to shrink wrap the male connecting wires to avoid shorting. The 3-contact housing connector also needs bit more drilling/filing for a better fit. Insulation & weather protection will follow shortly.
I’ll be compiling a full how-to guide once I have everything working on my end.
