I am doing a project in my '06 Ridgeline where I am taking out the iPod / Aux add-on and putting in a Bluetooth / Aux add-on at the back of the radio. In the process I will be removing the left cigarette lighter and replacing it was a USB and Aux port.
I've also been thinking about putting in some USB ports for charging and data transfer in the car and I figured that since I'll be taking the dash apart anyway, this is the perfect time to put those USB ports in.
I have chosen to put in a powered USB 3.0 hub which requires 12v. Therefore, I found an automotive DC to DC buck-boost regulator which is rated to output 12v at the appropriate wattage over the expected operating range of the vehicle's battery. Also, the input to the DC to DC buck-boost is appropriately fused. My idea was to take the now unused 12v outlet and wire it to my DC to DC regulator which ultimately powers my USB hub for glorious charging and data transfer.
My question is this: What is the connector at the back of the cigarette lighter and where can I buy a mating connector to make my own wiring harness that plugs into my DC to DC regulator? Alternatively what resources should I go to to find the information myself preferably without taking apart the dash.
Pardon me if this is the wrong forum.
UPDATE: I have found a cigarette lighter replacement at the following link. I'm assuming I'm looking for the mating connector that fits the wiring shown on the left. It's unnumbered so I'm stuck again.
