Console Conversion Wiring Kit - Info

Post by smwalker » Thu May 21, 2020 9:03 am

Lately I have been helping guys who are doing the console conversion with wiring kits. Problem I have been running into is every one is doing something a little different. I am going to attempt to try and create a ready made kit that will give everyone what they need to hook up any combination. See how it goes.

One thing I got down pat is the tap shift wire, that is a pretty common setup.

One thing you will notice pictured there is a Posi-tap connector. I thnk that is a neat product tot make the conenction at the BCM. Very good for tight spaces. Order a variety pack here - free shipping

Next is the wire for the Console switch for Trunk release / traction control. This is where it gets complicated as some folks go with the Console Switch with Traction Control / Sport Mode from AU.

Here is the wire for the traction control. it would be inserted into the Console switch in different positions depending on what switch you are using.

Need to find out what cavities on the shifter plug are Traction control and Sport mode - Those wires would be left behind in the vehicle side of the shifter plug once the 9C1 shifter was removed. There would be open spots in the 9C3/G8 shifter because those wires do not go into the shifter for those models. But that's an easy place to pick them up and use them.

That's right I remember the pinout on those is not that complete. It has the items listed but says not occupied on the same line.
And I can only find a picture of one side of the connector since it considers it a component connector and not an inline connector like it really is.
So Sport Mode Spot #5
Traction Control Spot # 7

I also need to investigate the Trunk release connector. If I could find the mating connector that would be an easy plug and play to pick up the trunk release and back-light wiring in one shot. Of course the guys that use the Traction / Sport buttons would not need the trunk wire but would still need to get back lighting from somewhere.

Now I remember the dead end I encountered last time. I do not believe they make a mating connector for our trunk release connector. Meaning they only make the female connector to plug into a molded switch. As you can see by the catalog page there is not part number for "mating pin housing. So I think we are stuck with butt connectors. Or maybe more of them Posi-Taps

Very timely for me since I just did the conversion and still need to do the wiring on the TUTD and the switches. Was waiting for the reopening of my local electronic supply store to find a plug to go into the trunk/TC combo switch. Still have to figure out which pin does what in that switch. I'm planning on using a regular push button placed in the cubby even though I wouldn't use it that much since I'd have TUTD.

I have the 9c1 shifter out if you need any pics of the wiring or plugs.

Moose I have the plugs for the 9C3 trunk/traction buttons. Do not think you would find them at any electronics store. I have only been able to get samples! I have been giving guys them in pigtail form but I am trying to make things plug and play. I have to order some terminals as I just ran out of the ones another member gave me.

If you would like just a pig tail they are $15 shipped. comes with about 18 inches of wire in spots 1,2,3,5 And I can give you a terminal on the Traction wire so you can go right into the shifter connector and pick up the traction control signal there. Or wait till I figure out the Trunk connector mating connector and get that nailed down.

A picture of the back of the 9C1 shifter connector would help me !!

I'm in no rush since I'm also waiting for the 9c3 shifter cover. If you can figure this out and save me hours of frustration, I'd really appreciate it.

Here are the pics. I also grabbed the back of the Sport and TC switches.
