Installation

This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your Chevrolet Impala's wiring harness, which is located behind the passenger's-side tail light. You will have to remove some carpeting and the tail light assembly to access this harness.


T-One Connection Location Points Behind Tail Lights

Once installation is complete, the 4-way flat connector will be stowed beneath your Chevrolet Impala, near the trailer hitch. A mounting bracket (sold separately) is recommended to keep the connector secure.


It is recommended that you use a small amount of grease on all electrical connections - the plugs on your automobile and the 4-pole connector itself - to help prevent corrosion.

Video Transcript for Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2012 Chevrolet Impala

Today on our 2012 Chevy Impala we're going to install tow ready T1 Connector part number 118417. First we are going to need to access the rear cargo area. Then our first step will be removing the rear threshold. There are a couple of fasteners that will need to be removed first. Now we are going to get our trim tool or a flat headed screw driver to get underneath the threshold and just pry it up. There's several plastic fasteners underneath threshold still holding it in place.

Once we have it free we can go ahead and take it out and set it out of the way. Now we need to remove the passenger's side tail light to access the wiring. We'll remove the cargo hook here first. This will allow us to pull the cuffing back and access the other two fasteners holding in the tail light. We can go ahead and remove the passenger's side tail light.

With the tail light removed you can see we can now access the rear tail light wiring. We'll match identically with our tow ready connector. Underneath there's a locking tab that you'll need to press as you release the connector. Then we take our toll ready connector plug it in-line with the manufacture's. Now as you press them together securely locking them in place.

Now with the connections made we can take the other end of our four-pole connector we are going to run it down between the bumper cover and the sheet metal of the vehicle. Just down and over to our hitch. The white wire with a ring terminal preassembled with our ground wire. We'll take our self-tapping screw and run it directly into the sheet metal. With our ground wire is secured we can go and reinstall the tail light line assembly and into your trim components.

Now with the interior trim components reinstalled we can go ahead and get up under the vehicle and round our wire over to our hitch. Then I'll take some black zip ties and secure the wire to the top of the hitch. After I secure my wire I'll just take my pliers side cutters cut off the excess from the zip ties, clean up the install a little bit and that now completes the installation of our new tow ready T1 Connector part number 118417 on our 2012 Chevy Impala.

2008 Impala wiring harness, unsnarled the wiring of my trailer to the car. I had poked hole with my test light and could not get it total working correctly, sought a solution and googling found this etrailer had the wirng harness at a good price for the non-soldering hook up of the car lighting, brakes, turn signals all to the 4 wire connector. same as the trailer had. No problems, removed the tail light as the videos showed and unplugged to plug this harness in and ...done...simple and easy. My sincerest thanks ! 42546

Ordered a hitch and wiring harness form etrailer on a Tuesday evening and received it on Friday of the same week. Since my order was over a certain amount, I received free shipping. I was informed when my order shipped that etrailer had upgraded my shipping again, at no cost. This in my opinion is what customer service is all about. My order was correct and the hitch is first quality and installed easily. I would highly recommend using etrailer and certainly will in the future. 99084

I would recommend just watching the eTrailer.com website videos a couple of time through for the installation instructions for this item if they are available for your vehicle. It was so very easy to install. I might have spent no more than 15 minutes to do it and that would include encasing the wires in some protective harness tubing too! It couldn't be any easier unless you had someone install it for you. 36855

  • Bolt Leader and Wiring Harness for a 2007 Chevy Impala
  • All of the hitches sold on our website come with the necessary hardware to install the hitch on its respective vehicle, but do not include the tools. If you should decide you need to purchase a bolt leader for the installation of the Draw-Tite Class II Trailer Hitch Receiver, item # 36407, you will need the 1/2 inch Bolt Leader, part # 80101-1. The T-One Wiring Harness for your 2007 Chevy Impala is sold separately from the hitch, and it is the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, item # 118417....

  • Is there a T-Connector Wiring Harness for a 2001 Chevrolet Impala
  • Unfortunately, at this time a plug-in wiring harness is not available for the 2001 Chevrolet Impala. To wire your vehicle for towing, you would use a 4-way Connector, part # 18002. This connector would wire directly into the lighting circuits behind your taillight assemblies. The easiest way to locate the correct circuits would be to use a circuit tester, such as part # 40376. Start grounding the white wire from connector to the vehicle. Next, activate the left turn signal, then use the...

  • Parts Needed to Install a P2 Trailer Brake Controller on a 2013 Chevy Impala
  • The 2013 Chevy Impala and most other cars do not have tow package wiring so there is no wire bundle or plug in port under the dash to plug in a brake controller. It will be a hardwire installation. The best place to run the wires from the controller to the battery would be at or near an existing harness that goes through the firewall. Ideally, you would run the wire without making any additional holes. But sometimes, there is no space at all to shove a wire through at an existing exit/entry...

Check to make sure your connections are clean and secure. We have a few handy devices that could help you check all this. You could use a circuit tester like part # 3808 to check to see what connections are...
