Still trying to figure out this connector 2008 WS 247


Recommended Posts

Ok so this mystery connector in my ski locker goes back to this module under the dash any ideas?  Nothing near it in ski locker to connect with.  What is this module?

MDC is a marine data concentrator.  Part of the Medallion family of DACs.  Do you have a paddlewheel for speed?  Or a depth gauge?  Those are two common uses of that box.

@WGjames I'll try to remember to dig around this weekend if we make it to the lake. I don't remember seeing that connector in my locker but was not looking for it.

Hey yes and both work. I was reading about that box but I can't find a wiring diagram?

Thanks I don't see that if or wire colors but I'll keep looking.  I wonder if this drawing exists for Malibu's?

That plug looks like it goes to a medallion gauge.  If it is then it should have a white/red wire, black wire, yellow wire, and blue wire.

Only at a dealer's AFAIK.  Not sure why MC's are so readily available on the Interwebs.  But as I said, same system (MEdallion) so a lot of the info should be transferable.  And it would not surprise me if BH Electronics in TN did the harnesses for Malibu as well.  Which gives me an idea:  send that picture to BH (Patrick Industries).  Or ask a Malibu dealer.

Loks like Orange, brown and white - some with stripes.  Those should be traceable in the diagrams.

Malibu doesn't really have wiring diagrams, they have engineering drawings of the harness and connectors from the harness builder with harness length, pin location, connector type, wire colors at the connector, and sometimes lists the component the connector goes to.  I was unable to find anything in those drawings that shows a connector like the one in the picture.  The wire colors at the connector may help, though.

@WGjames

Can you tell us what color the wires are on this connector?

I found one connector in the locker with orange, gray and black/brown. In addition there is a white with red on the connector going to a different termination.

Wht/red. 

Ong/blk 

Grey/blk I will try and get a little better picture later I remember the white and red is cut halfway down so it's not going anywhere
