My first post!

I'm restoring a couple of DDR Extreme cabinets, and have 2 new tubes which I'm making new wiring harnesses for. I'd reuse the old harnesses from inside the tubes, but someone here wants to buy them. Also they're intermittent when players dance on them. I've replaced all of the sensors / plates / interior arrow panel parts, and yet sometimes an arrow will just disconnect entirely. I've set it on test I/O mode and figured out that the position of the tube can cut the response out.

Does anyone know the part numbers or where I can buy matching molex connectors (there are 2 with 12 pins, and 1 with 4 pins. I'm not sure how to post images on here yet) to replace the ones in the connecting tube that runs between the machine and the pads? I've looked on Digikey, Mouser, eBay, and Google; even ordered ones that look similar, but ended up being a different size.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

The tubes I ordered (along with most of the other parts) were from Channelbeat. Unfortunately, they don't include the wiring harnesses with the tubes, nor do they sell them on their own.

I'm also wondering if they would be available through an automotive parts supplier, or if I didn't search properly through one of the major electronics parts websites. There are thousands of connectors out there, but I haven't had any luck with all the ones that look similar online when they arrive. At least I'm currently stocked up for making harnesses for custom projects.

I recall the connectors are AMP UP connectors like in Sega candy cabs? At least some of them are, there may be some Molex also.

Everything you need is there: https://wiki.arcadeotaku.com/w/AMP_Universal_Power
Part numbers for the housing, the pins, where to buy, etc. Smile

Check with the pictures to be sure this is what you're looking for. I don't have a DDR cab to check at the moment Smile And I didn't take pictures of that wiring last time I worked on one.
