Default Camshaft Position Sensor Pigtail connector

Can anyone give me some help or advice. I have an 02 Optima with a 2.4 I4 engine. The other day while repairing the Upper O2 sensor, I broke the connector to the Cam. Posit. Sensor. I have tried to find a pigtail connector to replace it but to no success. The junkyards wont sell them because they are part of the wiring harness and the dealers cannot even find it on there computers. They do have a list of pigtails but not for this. Any suggestions on how I can fix this?? Is there a generic pigtail that I can use?? Is there one available that can be found on the web somewhere. How can I make this connection reliable???

My 2002 kia optima w/ 2.4 liter 5 speed cps connector broke also-went to kia dealer and was told i neede a new wire harness, price $1,400! I did some research and found the replacement connector-in the kia online tech pages! I called the dealer and they finally admited that yes indeed, they CAN order this pigtail connector from Kia in Korea... they had to do some digging to find the order number but the parts guy was mad that I called there bluff

Newbie here with the same camshaft sensor connector problem. My local dealer says he call Kia and no part available.

Does anyone have a part number??

Also, I replaced this connector with one from the junk yard and it fell apart also.
Connector pigtail has oil in it. I guess from the camshaft.

Is there suppose to be a gasket on the camshaft sensor??? Local firestone dealer replaced camshaft sensor.

Default Part Number TKL04A0500

Did that part number work for you?

I have one ordered but there was no picture on the website.
So, I am not sure that it is the right part.

I have a '01 Optima LX with the 2.4L

Default This thread saved me.

TKL04 A0500 is correct. I registered to post pictures so that other people with a bad CPS / CMP connector will know if it will work for them or not. Comes in a 3 pack for whatever reason, only cost like $30 total.
