I bought the PBX from another member about a year ago and it arrived with a broken male pin. Burger Tuning suggested that I replace it with a "D-Sub Connector" from Fry's or Radioshack. After replacing the pin, I soldered the pin to the wire for added safety. It has been working without any problems in my car for the past year. You can see the replacement pin in the photo (white wire with gold pin).
