With the BOOMslang wiring harness between the OEM connectors no hacking of the OEM wires!
Thanks! Actually, can you see if they can leave all the wires included? This way we can just cut the wire ourselves, and if we choose to, can just tap it to a switch so it would be more convenient to enable/disable the steering lock power than having to unplug and connect it each time we want to change it back (say if I'm parallel parking on a hill). Just an option...

Great idea ! The OE harness is too short to allow for error in cutting/wire stripping/soldering or adding any connectors for the switch.

Soldering was manageable (I'm used to it) but a wire insulation stripping error would not have made it fun.

Suggestion: add at least 6 inches. Make it 10 as "too long" is better than too short........

....axios idea to include the wire, for cutting/soldering seems
dead right.

And now I know what a TH08FW-NH connector looks like. Many thanks to

A pig tail could easily be built if there was a supplier of the male and female 8 way connectors available.

http://www.sws.co.jp/en/product/conn...pdf/nwp_nh.pdf

I can't seem to find the connectors readily available for order, anyone know where these could be purchased?

Maybe contact the carkit guy that made our rear view camera kit and Nav hack kit. He was able to source everything OEM so it's all plug and play.......

Maybe he can point us in the direction for sourcing plugs?

I would pay 500 for the damn harness, as it would prevent me from going through potentially multiple locks...

Okay maybe not 500 but still...


this may be able to go directly to the gtr...so it might be more profitable then he thinks.
