Abstract
(EN)

An arrangement for connecting an accessory to a power source and to an electronic device of a vehicle. The arrangement includes: a power connector connecting the accessory to the power source, a signal connector connecting the accessory with the electronic device of the vehicle, a locking mechanism locking the power connector in position, and a locking mechanism locking the signal connector in position. The power connector lock and the signal connector lock are configured such that the signal connector can only be locked in the connected position after the power connector has been locked in the mounted position. The arrangement is suitable, for example, for an electric power steering device.
