[Brakes] ABS again
#1
Had problems with front left brake again (posted about ABS issues previously). Sorted quite quickly this time as I have had a few instances of poor electrical connections leading to  ABS warning light coming up. It was the connector plug where the ABS sensor plugs into the harness. The plug is looking a bit tired now, having been connected and disconnected many a time during fault finding activities. Does anyone know the spec/description for the plugs used (it's a 2009 model). I would like to cut out the old one and replace it. If the plug comes with flying leads I would solder it in. Perhaps I might need some sort of crimping/pin fitting tool if this isn't possible.
Thanks.

Unless someone knows different I don't think you will find a matching plug to buy.

You could get the harness side plug from a breakers yard, a plug from any Citroen or Peugeot would probably be the same.

Failing that you could fit your own type of plug, but that would mean fitting the matching end to the sensor wire.

Thanks JJ9. I sort of expected it would be a special, so I may fit a quality connector bought independently of Citroen. Still - if anybody knows the spec please let me know ....

I would solder them and use some shrink connectors.

I am using these on saltwater boat. 2 years without corrosion.

Thanks for the input. ABS ok at present- I will be ready with a connector like brajomobil's as it will surely fail again.
Thanks again.

That type of connector is available on ebay also.

If your problem is intermittent Is it not just a case of tightening up the connections on the pins of the connector, maybe bending the pins slightly.

Thats the kind of thing I've done, with the application of contact cleaner. But the "car side" plug is looking a bit untidy and I wanted to replace it in order to avoid problems in the future.

I see.

A new plug like brajomobil has used is the way to go then.

You may have look at these two websites:

I hope an ABS plug is more common then the plugs underneath the driver seat for seat heating I'm looking for.
