Anybody know where I can get or if it is even available, a general illumination female connector (3J9)? I have checked Marco and a couple others with no luck. Need the plastic plug, not just the crimp connectors.

IMO, install a high-current molex style in line connector with several inches of heavy guage wires. That should eliminate that issue forever. But even if it does come back the damage will be limited to wire and a connector, while the circuit board stays cool daddy-o.

This is what I do on my system 7s too. The plug burned up once under normal operation, it'll happen again if you just do the same thing to fix it. Maybe not for a long time, but

Can you someone snap me a picture of what you did so I can get a visual of what you are talking about! I thank you for the help!
