Looking for wire terminals to lengthen a harness without modifying the original. Any online shops carry this type of thing?

That's going to be tough without knowing what kind of connections you're using.
The best bet would probably be to find a similar donor and build an extension that will plug in.

There's an excellent online source for all things related to automotive electrical but I can't think of the name. I'll see if I can't dig it up.

Haven't ordered from them, but Waytek Inc. is a good source for automotive wiring products.

www.digikey.com is great for anything electronic, including connectors. For circular connectors, try www.alliedelectronics.com

This is an old (13 years) thread, but what I'm looking for at the moment. Are there any new online vendors now for automotive connectors? Any special connectors advised for LED (low current) wiring?

Thanks,

Lonnie

Lonnie,

Not sure if these guys have what you need but they seem like an oasis in the vanishing electronics hobby world.

Take a look.

Cheers!

I've had very good luck with Corsa Technic when I need low quantity replacement connectors for OEM stuff. https://www.corsa-technic.com/
They have/can get most anything, and reasonable prices.
