The ignition switch is Mazda p/n D00166151A. JA: Sometimes

Customer Question

The ignition switch is Mazda p/n D00166151A.
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Mazda. The Mazda Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: A female connector, (2) on the diagram has been damaged (due to a short) sometime back. It is literally welded to the plastic housing on the ignition switch. I need the p/n of the connector and the unnumbered connector that piggybacks into the main connector.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: I don't want to disable my car until I have all the parts I need to repair it.
JA: Is there anything else the Mazda Mechanic should be aware of about your Mazda?
Customer: It will be necessary to remove p/n 1 (D00166151A) together with the two (2) connectors, splice all wires to the new connectors and insert them all together when I install the new parts.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Mazda Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
