I'm looking for an electrical connector for my 1998 2-door Rav 4.

This is the female end (on the body side of the harness) which the driver's side tail light pigtail plugs into. Any idea how I could go about ordering a new connector?

Thanks!

You will probably be able to find the plastic shell and the pins at the dealer, but not the complete pigtail assembly. I just looked on Rock Auto and they have lots of pigtails but not this one.

What I would do at work is bypass that circuit in the connector. Cut the wire right at the shell on both ends and solder them together. This is the quick and easy way.

Another suggestion is to go to a salvage yard and get one from a junked RAV4. Other Toyota products might use this same connector.

Appears to be quite a lot of corrosion especially in the first photo - as if something like battery acid had leaked onto it. I would first find out what the source of the corrosion is, and then buy another connector at an electronics store (maybe Radio Shack) and cut off the old connectors and attach the wires to the new one. Or follow one of FixIt's suggestions and find a replacement at an auto salvage place.

From your third picture, part number is 90980-11587 (http://www.toyota-tech.eu/wire_harness_rm/RM06H0E.pdf, page 278):

You will also need five (or six, I cannot be sure from the pics) pigtail terminals (5/6x 82998-12330),
then solder/crimp them to a clean (i.e. non-corroded) section of your wires.
Picture for the male pigtail terminals:

Of course the cheaper method would be to snatch the wiring from a crashed Rav in a junkyard.

Awesome, thanks for the part numbers, Mick! :cool:

For future reference, the dealership wanted $16 for the connector and $17 for EACH pin. At that rate, I'll pick up a universal connector and splice it in.
