1966 Electric Window Connectors

So, I've been beating my head against the wall trying to find new connectors for the electric window motors. You can find them on the interweb, but the only supplier doesn't manufacture them any more. "Discontinued with out replacement."

So does anyone in Impala land have 4 connectors your willing to part with?

P/N PT5531

Thanks,

Chris

Lot of GM cars used the same parts. Have you checked the Cadillac sites to see if their deeper pockets might capture what remains of the existing stock.

As far as that goes Electric windows and seats were a new accessory on a Chevy (earlier years had vacuum powered motors , not electric), but not on the other marquees. You might find a bone yard with a Buick or Olds from the same year that has original wiring.

Man, I saw your post and thought, "no problem". I've been searching for about 1/2 an hour online!

This isn't the solution yet, but this harness has the connector body you need, so someone is reproducing it...

I'll keep digging.

If the round end is correct, its definitely an option.

These aren't available. BWD has discontinued without replacement.

Try American AutoWire. They are a supporting sponsor of this forum and I know one of their long-time employees --> Donny, is a B-Body enthusiast. Give him a call. He should be able to steer you in the right direction.

Power Window Connectors

Okay, just got off the phone with AAW. Their P/N is 07655 @ $18.00 ea. CI is out of stock. These will plug directly into the window motor. One can just remove the parallel plug and splice into the existing harness or remove the female terminals from the plug and put them directly on the vehicle harness. I believe this is the only way of getting the necessary parts to get this working again.

The bummer is, they buy that plastic connector off someone and we just need to figure out where it is sold!

When you receive it should be marked as Belkin, WeatherPack, Dorman, Deutsch, Amphenol, etc. As there are a boat load of companies making quality wiring pin connectors, and even more who do not bother get a safety listing like UL, DN or CSA on their product. What that name on the product will tell you is who was selling their product at the lowest price at the time the bid went out.

I doubt if the information will help you as those companies sell only wholesale in bulk.

I ordered 4, they had 3 in stock. I'm waiting for them to do another "run" before shipping to save me some money. When I get them, I'll take a bunch of pictures and see if there's any markings on them.

As I was reading this, I remembered a number of connectors I have here on bits and pieces of power window harnesses left over from wrecking yard purchases. None of the connectors appear to have any sort of identifying mark on them. I also noticed that some are a real hard plastic (green) and some a much more flexible feeling plastic (white).

The factory parts were not submitted for safety testing (so there will not be a UL or DN label).

They should be marked with a four digit code number for the vendor and a GM part number. As well as the possibly a date of manufacture somewhere on the part itself or the harness as that is what GM used for both Quality Assurance (QC) when they received the part from Packard Wire or from AC-Delco if it had a device attached to it: and for Inventory Control.

I finally got the new window motor adapters from American Auto Wire today. Yes, it's the correct connector for the window motor.
There is no marking on the face of the connector other than the number 33 and an "A" and a "B" for the terminals. So trying to figure out who the manufacture is of the plastic connector is anyone's guess. I suppose one could call and ask who their supplier is.
