Where to find headlight connectors

I was wondering if anyone has found both the male and female side of the factory headlight connectors? I want to make a headlight extension to let me connect up some DRLs without screwing with the original harness. I could splice in to the factory harness but I'd rather not if I could get both the male and female sides.

I know the connectors are made by AMP or whoever they go by now. And that on ebay you can find a 10pin to 14pin conversion harness for VW and Audi which I believe also use the AMP connector. However those harnesses kits only have the one side in 14pin.

I did a search and it came up with a lot of those relay harnesses or HID conversion bulb kits :(

check Bosch lighting
years ago they had adapters for going from old sealed beams to halogen bulb
they may have what your looking for

Napa will likely have the bulb end
Your local store will likely have a catalogue of what is available

I'll take a look at Napa but I figured they would only have the H7, H3, 9005 type connectors when I'm looking for the weatherproof 14pin sealed connector that attaches at the headlight housing and not the stuff inside to each bulb.

If I can get the male and female then I can disconnect the headlight unit connector and pop in my extension with a custom harness to connect up DRLs with the integrated turnsignals etc and I'd have access to highbeam, lowbeam and turnsignal circuits without making a mess of the factory harness or my warranty. I'm not a big fan of unsealed bullet connectors or quick splices.

The one end looks like the image i've attached.

I did the same thing but for installing my HIDs (yes, I also installed projector headlights). I ordered H13 pigtails from Autolumination.com. They were great and fast delivery.

Thanks guys.

autolumination has a lot of stuff but I don't see any of these connectors that would help me. The stuff they have would be useful for the connections inside the headlight but I need access to the circuits and the best way is to find a male and female side of the connector in the picture.

Not sure if this helps but....

I did a reverse google image search of that picture, and found this:

http://www.eleocean.com/productsview.asp?id=269

Looks like the AMP part number is 1719105. Searched that, and found this:

http://octopart.com/1719105-2-te+con...F+amp-22729991

Checked the first link (Avnet) and they sell them for 2 bucks each but are out of stock. Says 13 week lead time.

Maybe you can check some other distributors?

Maybe you did all this already though.

Thanks. Yeah it seems like those places want you to order a minimum of 200pcs or more. Maybe I should just ask them. But I was hoping someone on here would know a different way to find these things.

when I saw the conversion harnesses for the 10pin to 14pin I thought I was golden but then realized the one side was a 10pin which doesnt work for me.
