What is the radio connector correctly called?

Post by froche »



I am trying to find one, but without knowing what it is correctly called, it's impossible. So what is it correctly called, or does anybody have one? (the part on the radio).

As far as I'm aware, that's called a missing picture.

Yeah, picture wouldn't attach... wonder if it is the picture (always worked before with phone), or maybe the crash/return of the site?

OK I finally got it... This one


And I would have said the antenna jack had it been one. But thanks for trying to guess... that is also a jack on the radio.

Close but no cigar!
That is the Faring mounted "male" connector, my picture is of the "female" connector mounted on the radio

oh ok, you need the schematics for the radio I guess have you tried sierra electronics, they do repair work on the 1200 radios.

First I looked at schematics, no name for connector.

Second I asked Sierra. Their reply:
"Sales

to me
Frank:
There is not a name of this 24 pin connector on the part nor do we know who the manufacturer of that part was.
You can probably buy the pin out/schematics online somewhere.
If you are trying to convert to an aftermarket radio, we would recommend removing the basket also then simply tie into the speaker leads….

Third the radio works but I wanted to "upgrade" it to be able to play MP3's.

I thought Panasonic and Honda wouldn't "invent" a new connector, rather I hoped it would be an available connector like a Centronics connector (which it resembles but isn't the same size and has odd spacing in comparison).
