Mobile Phone connector in the battery compartment

Postby Richmmm » Thu 23.06.2022, 11:03

In my 1992 SE, there is a Mobile Phone connector in the battery compartment.

Any ideas what type of connector it is and where to get a plug to mate wih the connector?

Regards, Rich

It's not a factory cable - any chance it's something to do with a trickle charger?

Are you able to provide some photos?

There is a wiring diagram somewhere for the mobile phone and some detail of the wiring in the "upgrades section" for heated seats. the connectors are listed separately and that page is in the wiki under Electrics

Hello all,

I have found some more info, in the wiring manual. It says the Connector that mates with the car is part no. 511550006 and the pins are 51101169 available from Rists (?)
It looks like a Mate-n-lok type connector, maybe some this from RS or Farnell.

Anyone know what Rists is?

There are a number of 'Lucas Rists' connectors on ebay, an example:

Rists (more correctly Rists Wires and Cables Ltd) was a West-Midlands-based manufacturer of wiring and cable components. IIRC, they were operating during the ‘60s and ‘70s and went out of business in the early ‘80s. At that time, it was quite common to see electrical components referred to with a Rists part number.

No idea where you’d get one now, although I’d have thought Ken's eBay solution was a good place to start.

If all else fails, you could always use a USB adapter in the lighter socket :D

I would have thought this would have to be the way to go (unless you are sporting a seriously antique mobile phone... :shock:

Or, simply cut off the connector and install one that's not obsolete.
