Anyone find a connector that fits into the V connector of the in-dash fuse box? I have connectors going to V3 and V4 and the V3 keeps slipping off whenever I go over big bumps.

Need Help Identifying Fuse-Box Connector

I am installing a brake-controller and would like to use the "only hot when key turned in ignition" outlet found on the inside fuse box (see photo):



Does anyone know where I can get the plug that goes into that outlet, or what it would be called? Or does anyone know another way to tie into that outlet?

Or would an "Add-a-Circuit" be simpler? If so, anyone know which fuse would work best? I need the power on only when the car is turned on.

Thank you.

You might be able to use one of the pigtails discussed in the wiper delay thread, i.e., Honda p/n 04320-SP0-A00 or 04320-SP0-B00. Not a V connector per se, but might work to connect a wire to one of the three tangs.

Honda doesn't list the connectors separately. A junkyard donor would provide one, though.

Thanks -- I have decided to (gasp!) follow Tekonsha's directions and directly wire the brake controller through the firewall. It's a bit of a bother but will probably take less time and hassle than trying to figure out a safe and secure way to tie-in to the mystery connector.

Thanks again.

UPDATE: I did install the brake controller through the firewall, and it was pretty easy, within a couple hours working by myself I had both the positive and negative wires through an existing grommet and connected to the battery along with a circuit breaker. Hardest part of doing the entire install was splicing into the brake pedal wire -- hard to work at that angle up under the dash even with a quick splice connector.

Installing a brake controller is not hard to do and I think anyone who does basic work on their cars would be able to do it over the course of a day working at a leisurely pace.
