    What series Delphi connectors do our cars use?
    I'm thinking it's 59 series. Anyone know for sure?

          The only place you should find a 59 series terminal on your car is on the headlight bulb.

          FWIW, the Packard/ Delphi /Aptiv 56 series terminals are not the same as the MoPar terminals when it comes to fitting into the plastic enclosures.

          The GM type terminal is more of a rectangle when viewed from the front and has a flat spring type contact that slides along the male counterpart whereas the MoPar terminal has a pair of simple rolled over contacts.

          Often times the larger frontal area of the GM terminal won't fit into the MoPar plastic housing and you ave to use the GM style plastic as well.
          ....then the GM plastic won't plug into the corresponding other side of the plug.

            Waytek sells them. They're the same terminal that various suppliers use for their add-on relay sockets
