Greetings,

Would anyone happen to know where I could find female instrument cluster connectors(from the main harness) that connect to the Instrument Cluster? Tried searching online at various automotive connector shops but am unable to find anything remotely close.

Alternatively, if you happen to have your instrument cluster open, mind taking a few close up shots of the connectors.

Im considering retrofitting the instrument cluster on my 2007 GTS 250 with an analog one from a GTS 300. I studied the wiring diagram and they appear to be very close.

Thanks In Advance

Is it not the molex mx150?

Thanks for your response. Perhaps one of the connectors is an MX150, however the other 2 connectors (4 pin and 8 pin) are unlike anything I have seen before See attached photos

If anyone happens to have the GTS Wiring Harness or happens to be working or replacing your instrument cluster, can you please take several photos of the instrument panel connectors on the harness. Many of the major online electronics(Arrow, Mouser, ...) stores require several photos to try to identify the connector. I've studied the wiring diagram between the 250 and 300 and believe that a 300 instrument cluster can be made to work with a 250. In parallel also going down the path of repairing my LCD. Thanks in advance!

Your best bet might be to source the female socket like on the 250 cluster then solder the leads off that to the flat ribbon on the 300 cluster

Found a 7 pin version of the same connector(See Attached Photos). Interesting to note that the terminals are also unique. Perhaps a proprietary connector?
