KME Nevo, wires at the changeover switch/gauge have vibrated themselves off the female connector to the loom.
Anyone have a clue what type of connector it is, I don't want to solder direct to the switch pins, that's the road of no return.

Probably a Molex jobbie but finding it if you really don't have a clue about the right 'terms' is a PITA.

Doesn't matter too much there's no LPG about at the moment...

Something like this should do the job https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/idc-connectors/6827084/

Cheers, close but no Cigar.

Did eventually find it on the RS site after much faffing about.
Well, I think I've found it, see when the parts come in if I've got it right.

I did say something like this. Without the thing in my hand there didn't seem much point in trolling through the RS website to find what looked like an exact match only for it to still only be close but not quite. At least you should be able to sort it now.

Just buy another switch? The square Nevo switch is DG3 and has the female connector at the back. You could swap to DG5 round type switch which has about 8 inches or wire hanging out the back, you'd just cut the male connector off and solder to your wire from the ECU. You might be able to buy a DG7 round switch which has programmable colour LEDs.. a switch that is more configurable than some LPG ECU's in their entirety! You'd need to update firmware to use the DG7 and depending on age of your ECU might have to do firmware for DG5. But £20odd quid for a new switch i probably a better bet than trying to get hold of the correct connector and then trying to solder it in to the back of your switch?

I think its the plug hes lost rather than the connector on the switch, which should be easier to sort with any luck. Though i do wonder how it managed to come off all the same.

Hehe I swept about 20 of those up yesterday and will have plenty others knocking about. In fact I'm sat in my car writing this and can see two in the door pocket, I saved them when I first started fitting the DG5 switch, ECU looms still come with the connector for the DG3 switch.
