Hey guys my pigtail for the coil pack has broken. The little red lock is destroyed I was wondering if there was a place out there that still sold these kits where you can rebuild them. I went to the local Jeep dealership parts counter and they looked at me like I was retarded.

The thing I am talking about is usually the plastic connector then the little metal prongs that go into them. All taken apart so you could build it yourself.

Check guys that have automobile electric shops. They should have all manner of plugs and be able to supply or fix what you have. I have gotten specialized stuff from my local shop

There are some companies that make replacement connectors, generally with a "pigtail" attached, that supply those auto shops. What I've found is that the auto parts stores often won't bother even looking for stuff that isn't a high-demand part (like pigtails for GM alternators or headlight connectors). If you Google the part you need often times you can get a part number to give them. I've had good luck with RockAutos catalog. If that doesn't work I use a local electronic's store; often they will have the terminals I need to rebuild my connectors. If all else fails there's always the pickapart style junkyard.

Got the part number from a friend who works in a body shop. So I just ordered it from him.

It really burns me up about dealership parts counters. I know they knew what I was talking about but since it wasn't an overpriced interior piece or rims they will not help out. Sorry I am keeping my 15 year old Jeep on the road. Maybe if there was some loyalty from a dealership I would consider getting something new.......

and if they made anything that looked as good as my truck!
