    Power distribution center (PDC) replacement - under the hood

    I'd like to upgrade the Lancer fusible links since I just blew one and do not want to cut up the harness as the service manual states. Anyone have good experience with swapping one from a newer vehicle and make it look somewhat stock? This is for my Lancer, so there should be much more room than in my GLHS. Also interested if someone did, were you able to find the terminals so it can be done more cleanly than splicing wires.

    I'm interested in this too. Hopefully someone has found a nice modular solution, or a good PDC that actually has terminals available for it.

    Same here. I have seen reference to those using Mopar PDC from early Jeeps and certain Mopar cars

    Well I went to the parts yard to see what all was available. I stuck with Chrysler parts, but if I have time I may go back and see if there is anything that a tad smaller. This one will fit, but I'll need to modify the power module case. Would prefer not to do it, but it seems to be a good overall size and would replace all the relays right there and would allow for relays for the headlights. I won't be using the older style relays and that still leaves 8 mini relays and over 20 fuses. Wish the footprint was small enough so I didn't have to modify the power module, but don't see a way around it unless I can find one about 3-4" deep and about 6-7" wide. Plan to work on it a little more when I have time.

    This came out of a mid 2000s Stratus and it was only $10.

    1st gen Neon....

    Small and wire colors even 90% match. I posted details years ago.

    If I can find one locally I will for sure grab it. This was all they had along with a similar year Neon. The only difference was the positive terminal post was missing on the Neon one, but the footprint was the same.

    Thanks Rich!

    Can you get terminals for them? That's what's stopped me from finishing off my Omni. I would like to populate the relay locations with something that draws some amps and I don't want to track down a ton of them to pull the couple wires big enough from each one.

    Found in first gen Taurus.
    Uses MAXI fuse which is perfect for replacing the fusible links.
