Vehicle Interface Connector C33-E Identification

I need some help trying to identify the new Vehicle Interface Connector on the 2018 and later vehicles.**I found a number of posts that mention the six pin connector part number, but in searching the BEMM I can't find anything on the "latest & greatest" 8 pin connector.**Attached are the pages I am looking for in the 2019 BEMM.**

6 Way- Connector A = 3U2Z-14S411-JBA
8 Way- Connector B = Female Plastic Shell in Van, need molex 33012-2002 or similar to populate connector shell

My next step is to take the driver seat off and confirm that the BEMM is correct and maybe collect the connector part number from the physical connector.**I have been putting off removing the driver seat since is seems like a little bit of a chore, but maybe it is time to roll up the sleeves and geter dun!

My 2018 (built Nov '17 if I recall correctly) has an 8 pin. It had an empty connector shell that I populated with Molex MX150 crimp terminals. I was going to post some pictures when I got the chance but all is working well.

So it had a fully populated connector half with harness wired into the van (harness highlighted in the BEMM) and then an empty shell that just needed the crimp terminals? Or you just used the crimp terminals without any connector to get to individual pins?

It had a proper empty connector shell for the female terminals plugged into the van side. I took lengths of wire, 8 different colours, crimped the terminals on (proper crimper will be hard to find or expensive for most), populated them into the shell, and plugged the connector back in (after installing some split loom on the bundle). There's a white lock tab thing that needs to be gently pryed out before doing this and snapped back when done.

To start I had purchased a 6 pin pigtail kit, thinking this was the one I needed. When I got in there I swore, but was happy to find that I wouldn't need to purchase the 8 pin pigtail kit. I returned the 6 pin kit for a small restocking fee since I had special ordered it.

BTW, I believe it was about the 4th or 5th time I had the driver's seat off and the battery box taken apart this past weekend. I've become quite the expert at it. Yes, it's a bit of a chore and I'm really hoping this time was the last in a long time.

@Sparky961 Thanks for the reply and confirmation.

Just the female molex crimps will be easier to get than the whole wire bundle.

I guess this weekend Ill get to start my exploration into the battery box

When I was looking for connectors I did a visual search through the Ford Pigtail Book, but I see that this one was published in 2016. Maybe there is a newer version out there for you. Or maybe the connector that you need is an older one, and is in this book.

Thanks for the info. I couldn’t find an updated book, but it does contain a number of 8 pin connectors. If my first plan doesn’t pan out I’ll dig through the pigtail book some more.
