    Lost varied electrical connectors when front tire was run flat for a few miles. Windshield washer pump connector is gone along with another connector(maybe ABS).
    Anyone have a source for looking them up on the internet?
    Thanks

    Good grief, what happened? Did the flat tire frag and fly through the fender liner?

    The electrical wiring diagram (the "EWD" tab, after signing in) on techinfo.toyota.com. If you select a connector on the diagram, and click the orange Info icon in the lower right corner of the window (the icon doesn't say "Info" at all, so it's hard to know that's what it is unless you already know, but it's in that corner and it's orange and that's what it is, anyway), you get to a page that shows the part number of the connector housing.

    If you click the little (+) expand symbol on that page next to "Wire Harness Repair", it also shows you the part numbers for the repair terminals that go in the housing.

    Thanks for the reply. Yes, the tires side walls shredded barely hanging on to the actual tread. It must have slapped the crap out of the fender liner, tearing it out and in the process, ripping out both washer pumps and tearing out some connector above the shock tower. Since then I have three warning lights. Low tire pressure. Not a surprise. That went off with a new tire. The "skid" light came on as well as the ABS light. Looking at the wiring diagram, the unconnected connector seems to be associated with the "skid" control. I'm going to try connecting them together tomorrow with out the actual connector and clearing the codes to see if that's the only issue. If that works, I'll patch in the new connector so we're back to operating condition.

    If you mean the wheel speed sensor connector (A15, A34, z1, or z2), on third-generation Prius cars, the connector housing has Toyota part number 90980-12416. The repair wire (pigtail with terminals) is 82998-24250; the sealing plug is 90980-09871; and the recommended parallel splice to connect a repair wire to the existing wire harness is the blue one, 82999-12020. This isn’t a sealed splice, so you also need silicone tape. This information comes from the Electrical Wiring Diagram (more info), as @ChapmanF kindly mentioned above.

    The EWD doesn’t tell you, but it’s a Sumitomo Wiring Systems TS Sealed Series (025) connector. If you’re prepared to crimp your own terminals, which I don’t recommend (they’re tiny—025 means the terminal tabs are 0.025" wide—and designed to be crimped by machine in a factory, not with hand tools), you can buy a kit with the housing, terminals, and seals from hi-1000ec.com in Japan. (Hint: buy extra terminals.) I think they sell the male connector, too, if you’re not replacing the entire wheel speed sensor assembly.
