300CE 1990 cam sensor wiring?

As pictured, the connector at the front right of the engine is frayed which I believe is causing my car not to start. Sometimes when I wiggle it, the engine will start. It's sheathed so it's not an easy solder fix. I can't find just the connector wiring so I probably need to replace the whole engine harness which will be costly. I can't find one for this year as most sources just sell the faulty later 93-95? harnesses. Any suggestions?

If that is the camshaft position sensor, the connector, wire and sensor are one piece and separate from the harness. Not cheap though, $150 at Fastlane.

Glen,

the sensor plug and wiring to into the harness but I haven't tried to separate it yet. Got a link to that part?

Thanks,

Felix

yep, wrong part. The cam plug is part of the harness.

I spliced one in from a wrecked CE but still haven't solved my starting problem...
