Wiring Connector providers for Kawasaki Mule 4010

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I have a 2012 Kawasaki Mule 4010 Trans Diesel. I need to find replacement for the wiring connector that attaches to the electric assisted steering motor, both male/female. The connector currently comes as part of the larger wiring harness, that is $315+, which absolutely drives me crazy. To spend $300+ for a $4 connector...crazy.

Does anyone out there have actual experience finding the connectors for the Mule?

I've tried...

The connector looks like a Sumitomo 6189-6953 2-way connector, but the measurements are just slightly different, and it's not in any of Sumitomo's catalogs. There are no part#'s, symbols, or other identifying marks on the connector. I've attached pictures to show what connector I am referring



I really need to find this and willing to pay a premium for the connectors, just not insanity payment. Thanks be to anyone who can help.

What exactly is wrong with the female portion of the connector?  It looks okay unless there's a broken connection inside the connector.  I presume the male connector is okay.  You can replace the pins on many connectors without replacing the housing.  If the wire is broken inside, you might be able to pop out the broken one (with a small pin probe) and solder or otherwise remake the connection.

I have, in the past, cut off the bad connector, crimped on a matching solderless connector to the individual wires and plugged the wires back into the circuit.  Not on any ATV or UTV, but I have done it on my truck because the connector was more expensive that I thought is should be.  Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Yep, I did notice.  Many "help me posts" are very old.  But I posted anyway in case someone needs to do an emergency repair until they can find the necessary, hard to find parts.
