Video Transcript for Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2010 Chevrolet Malibu

Today on this 2010 Chevy Malibu, well be installing the Tow Ready T1 vehicle wiring harness, part number 118450.To start, well need to open up the rear cargo or trunk. Then well go ahead and take the spare tire cover and push it forward, clearing the lip of the rear threshold.Next well pull up on the rear threshold, unlocking it from its mounting position. Next well need to remove the fastener securing the carpeting behind the drivers side taillight assembly. There are two cargo hooks, theyll need to be unscrewed and two pushpin fasteners that will have to pop out here on the drivers side.Then well go ahead and fold the carpeting out of the way exposing the three plastic wing nuts that secure the taillight assembly in place. Well remove these three wing nuts. Now well go ahead and remove the taillight assembly, simply popping it out of position.

We can then go ahead and press on the locking tab for the connector and remove the wiring harness from the taillight assembly.Ill set the taillight assembly aside and well bring in our new Tow Ready harness, starting with the yellow and brown wire connector, plugging into the manufacturers wiring. Then we can take the four pole and green wire connector end, feed them down between the bumper cover and the body of the vehicle to underneath the vehicle.Once the wire if fed underneath, well go ahead and take the white wire with the preattached ring terminal which will be our ground wire for our new harness and secure it directly to the body of the vehicle using a self tapping screw provided with our install, well go ahead and secure it here behind the taillight assembly. Note, where two pieces of sheet metal double up, will be a good ground location.Now we can go ahead and reinstall the drivers side taillight assembly by connecting the yellow and brown wire connector into the back of the taillight assembly and reinstalling it. Then we will reinstall the carpeting behind the taillight assembly.Now we can move over the passenger side and repeat the same process by removing the carpeting behind the taillight assembly and then removing the taillight assembly.Next well go ahead and get underneath the vehicle and start routing the four pole over to the center of the vehicle and down to the hitch and our green wire connector over the passenger side and up behind the passenger side taillight assembly. Note when routing your wires, stay away from moving components such as steering or suspension or excessive heat such as the exhaust.Now with the wire fed up behind the passenger side taillight assembly, we can go ahead and plug into the manufactures wiring, then well take the excess from the green wire, go ahead and wrap it up and use one of the black zip ties to secure it to the manufacturers wire.

Ill cut off the excess from the zip tie and then well take the green wire connector end and plug it into the taillight assembly.Now were ready to go ahead and reinstall the passenger side taillight assembly and carpeting. Next well go ahead and reinstall the rear threshold and put our spare tire cover back into position.This will complete the install of our Tow Ready T1 vehicle wiring harness part number 118450 on our 2010 Chevy Malibu.

eTrailer totally rocks! !! First of all, I only discovered your website as a result of trying to price a wiring harness for my vehicle. I had gone to the local store to get an estimate for installing a wiring harness on my 2010 Chevy Traverse, and was appalled that they wanted to charge me $79.99 for the wiring harness and then $100 labor!!! I couldn’t believe it – and went home and googled wiring harnesses, and I found your website among the search results. Right there on the page for my wiring harness was a 4-minute video with beautifully detailed instructions for how to install the harness on my vehicle. Without hesitation, I ordered the part from your website, and days later I had it delivered to my door. I recently had knee surgery, so I enlisted the help of my 12-year-old daughter, who, after watching your instructional video, was ready to go... In no time at all, she had the wiring harness completely installed. Not only did she gain a sense of accomplishment, she also gained $10 to add to her piggy bank. THANK YOU eTRAILER! I will be recommending you to everyone! 47299

This custom wiring harness took all the angst out of tying in to our new Enclave's wiring. I watched the installation video, first, which was most helpful. Recommendations to others, who might purchase this product for the Buick Enclave or similar vehicles: 1. You may need wire ties that are longer than those provided with the kit. I had to secure the wiring to a Hidden Hitch frame, which required 10 inch wire ties. (I doubled up on 8 inch ties.) 2. If you use a drill for the self-drilling screw provided for the ground wire, as demonstrated in the installation video, use caution, as it is easy to strip the hole in the thin sheet metal behind the tail light. I hand-tightened, on my second try. Total installation time was about 30 minutes, including 10 minutes to find the stash of long wire ties in my shop. 108186

This product saved me. We bought a 2009 Chevy Traverse and had the dealer put in the trailer hitch with the 7 pin socket for trailer lights. Unfortunately the wiring harness for the trailer lights, the way it comes from the factory on vehicles without the factory tow package, was not connected to the fuse box, and the fuse box doesn't even support it. Entire sockets are missing. And thus, there was no power at the socket for the lights. In a bind, i found this product, and hooked it up in about an hour, without the need for a new fuse box or any nonsense type modifications. Etrailer shipped it out to me overnight since I needed it because we were going on a trip on the weekend. Got the part on time, and put it in, and all was right with the world again. 66826

I received the harness to wire my 2011 Chevy Traverse to tow my cargo trailer. The product came quickly, was well packaged, and the wires seemed durable. The harness plugs into the tail light connections so no splicing or any other electrical work is required. A screw had to be drilled into the sheet metal to ground the lights but that’s the only real work required other than removing and re-installing the tail light fixtures. After watching the installation video produced by eTrailer, I went out and had no issues installing the product. Excellent video! The product is great, but the best thing for a DIY install is the video demonstrating the installation. Excellent video and easy to install product. 135066

This wiring harness was shipped quickly and was as easy as anything to install. It's difficult to muster the courage to take apart newer vehicles these days, but the videos associated with the harness along with the impeccable design made the project easy and should be well within anyone's capability and comfort zone. Professional quality, great design, fast and easy installation = excellent product. On a side note, this company is great to work with. Flawless purchasing experience and tons of correspondence kept me informed on the status of my parts. For what my two cents are worth, I highly recommend using this company for any towing/hitch/accessory needs! 87975

The product is very simple to install and easy to use. I will be towing a pop up camper with my Buick Enclave and what i liked most about this wire harnes is that i did not have to cut any wires on my car the plugs fit perfectely and i was able to install it with in 10 mins. 49951





Comments

Do you have a V92 towing package on your Enclave? I have a 2009 Enclave without a towing package and am looking to install a pop up camper as well. What is the weight of your pop up camper? What components did you install in order to tow the pop up camper? I just want to make sure I am not missing something. Thanks!

Had a lot of trouble putting wire harness over the bumper bracket as stated in the video. The person doing the video ( I had my computer alongside me under my 2011 Buick Enclave) seemed to just be doing this with his hand. After a half hour of that I tried another half hour of using a fish tape to pull it through. Still no luck. I took a mirror to look at the opening and it didn't look even close as to getting the plugs through so I gave up and installed the harness using a different route with a lot of ties to keep it off the exhaust system. 22346

I have ordered from eTrailer before. Everything I have ordered from them has shipped fast and packed well. I also have seen their YouTube video's for installation on this hitch and wiring harness and that was what sold me on buying from them. It only took around 20 minutes or so to put this hitch and wiring harness on. Fit on our 2012 Chevy Traverse is excellent and until you remove the plastic hitch cover on the bumper you cant see it. I put a receiver hitch on all my vehicles and this has to be the easiest installs I have every done. 86298

Bought the wiring harness and hitch from etrailer. It said in the video that it would take about 30 minutes for the hitch and 15 minutes for the harness. I believe the whole thing tool us about 25 minutes to do. The holes for the hitch were spot on, the harness went in with no issues at all. The only thing that was lacking were the zip ties needed to be longer than in the package to go around the frame correctly. I had some to use so it really didn't stop anything. Thank you once again for the quick delivery and the outstanding products. 82722

Easy install, great install video, only a couple of complaints... #1: the zip-ties are too small to actually zip-tie anything to the hitch. They need to be a couple inches longer. #2: the wiring kit has no bracket to affix the plug to the hitch. I used a couple of the zip-ties that were too small to use on the hitch itself as a patch until I can figure something permanent to do. Overall though, easy install, only took an hour or so to fully install both hitch and wiring and I'm mechanically stupid. 50084

Very simple install. It's totally plug and play. The video of the install is 100% right on. One thing about the etrailer group. There use to be a day where businesses took customer service as first priority, those days have seemed to slip away, but not with etrailer. These folks have gone above and beyond customer service. They are more worried about your satisfaction than the actual sale. It it’s truly refreshing to see customer service is still alive and well. Thanks etrailer! 33401

The trailer harness wiring adaptor I ordered for my 2010 Chevy Malibu was excellent. Easy website to search and order, Arrived nicely packaged, arrived quickly. Great instructions, fit perfect, worked perfect. It plugged in perfectly to the stock GM vehicle connectors, and worked 100% the first time.the price was reasonable for the quality of the wiring harness I received. All connectors had water-tight seals for long dependable life. I'll definitely order again from eTrailer.com 49905

etrailer staff went out of their way to get the shipment shipped out late tuesday. arrived Friday evening. The installation video made the installation a snap. Installed in about 30 minutes by removing the taillight lenses and cafefully routing wires away from exaust and tie-wrapped to hitch. First quality wiring kit for 2010 Chevy traverse. Saved time and money. I am very pleased and will make eTrailer my first call for my trailer needs. I couldn't be happier. 114314

I did the wiring harness and trailer hitch receiver myself. I'm not that handy around cars however it between the 2 things, it took me about an hour to instal myself. I didn't have anyone to help me- if I did, it probably would have shaved off maybe 15 mins and less likely to have something fall on my face. Overall, very easy, instructions were great. I installed this on my 2012 Chevy Traverse. I saved a bunch of money- best deal around that I could find!! 26588

Wiring in the harness was as simple as the video demonstrated on my 2011 Buick Enclave. One of the connectors did not want to stay connected in the tail light - I had to 'massage' it a little to finally get it to click and stay connected. Also, the 3 tie wraps provided in package were not long enough to wrap around the hitch as the most logical place to tie. Not a big deal - overall. Very happy with the quick shipment and product is as expected. 75287

It was easy to install, and it looks just like the picture. The only drawback was that the supplied tie wraps weren't long enough to go around the tube of the U-hual trailer hitch-not something that they should have foreseen, just how it worked out for my particular application. The electrical connector plugs worked just fine-very plug and play- except that I did need to drill a hole in the sheet metal to mount the ground wire. 6771

The installation video was a great help. However, I'd suggest having a buddy assist with feeding the wiring through the the body panels. There are a couple points were the wiring can get hung up. Having one person wiggle the wiring harness while the other operates the clothes hanger or hook would speed the operation. Using a flashlight was also helpful. 61446

I installed this on a 2011 Buick Enclave. The plug in wiring is great. Much easier than trying to find the correct wire in a factory wiring harness. Had some issues with routing wiring over the frame. Might have been easier if I started at the hitch and fished the wires up to each tail light instead of starting on the driver side tail light. 122869

I had it installed and operational in under one hour. It requires longer zip ties than were provided. It helped to have a wire puller to fish the components around through the vehicle body. 46058

  • 7-Way Trailer Wiring Parts and Instructions for a 2012 Buick Enclave
  • The first thing you will need to do to install a complete 7-Way trailer wiring harness on a 2012 Buick Enclave without factory tow package wiring, is install a 4-Way trailer wiring harness, part # 118450, if the vehicle does not already have a working 4-Way connector. Next, you will need to install an electric brake controller installation kit, # ETBC7, to complete the wiring. Installing this kit will require you to hard wire the 12 volt power wire, brake controller output, power, ground...

  • Which Trailer Connector is Needed for 2009 Chevy Traverse without Tow Package
  • The trailer connector you need will depend on the type of trailer you are planning on towing and whether or not your Traverse is set up with factory tow package wiring. If you are going to tow a smaller utility or flat bed trailer that does not have electric brakes or on board accessories that would require power like an electric jack or interior lighting, then a 4 pole connector should be just fine for you. To provide a 4 pole connector on your Traverse without factory tow package...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Installation Difficulty and Details for a 2010 Chevy Traverse
  • We have a difficulty rating system based on how long it would take the average person to install a hitch. For the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75528, and your 2010 Chevy Traverse, we rate the difficulty at a 3 out of 10 meaning it should take about 30 minutes. There is no drilling required. You will have to temporarily detach the rubber exhaust hangars to put the hitch in position. I can tell you that with the proper tools, and someone to help you lift and position the hitch, this is...

  • Can Rear Fascia Panel be Replaced After Installing Curt Trailer Hitch # 13424, 2011 Chevy Traverse
  • You will notice in the instructions that I have linked for Curt Trailer Hitch, # 13424, that it states that the panel in question may be reinstalled on some models. So I spoke with my contact at Curt to determine if the 2011 Chevy Traverse was a model that it could be reinstalled on. He stated that they did not have information on the 2011 but on the 2010 it can be reinstalled. Basically, if the rear fascia is the same on the 2011, then it will fit. But if it has been redesigned, it...

  • Can Fascia Door Be Reinstalled after Hidden Hitch # 87435 is Installed on 2010 Buick Enclave
  • Once installed, the front face of the receiver will extend a bit too far rearward in order for the fascia door to be reinstalled. From what I have been able to determine in my research, the other fascia door you mentioned (with the hump in it) can be obtained from your Buick dealer, but it is intended to work with the OEM hitch because the aftermarket hitch receiver tubes extend a bit further rearward. So, you can install an aftermarket hitch and leave off the fascia door, or purchase...

  • Installing the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller from Scratch on a 2010 Chevy Traverse
  • Without a factory tow package, you will need to hardwire the Prodigy P2 brake controller, # 90885 (installation details linked below) for your 2010 Chevy Traverse. First, you will need to install Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, # 118450. I have included a video installation on a similar vehicle. Next you will need to install a 7 and 4 Way Installation Kit, # ETBC7. Plug the 4-Way you previously installed into the back of the ETBC7. There will then be 4 wires left to connect:...

  • Is Drilling Required To Install Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 12051 On My 2011 Chevrolet Malibu LT
  • To install the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 12051, on your 2011 Chevrolet Malibu LT you will need to drill 2 holes that are 17/32 of an inch. There is a template included with part # 12051 so that you drill in the correct spots. All of the hitches available for the 2011 Malibu require drilling to install. A drawbar, pin and clip come included with part # 12051. To complete your towing setup, you may be interested in the following: Wiring, part # 118450 1-7/8 Inch Hitch Ball,...

  • No Green Light On the Power Trac Brake Controller When Trailer is Connected to a 2011 Chevy Traverse
  • The Electric Brake Controller Wiring Adapter, # 3026-P, is designed for use with the 2011 Chevy Traverse, if it has a factory installed 7-Way connector. Since you have a aftermarket 4-Way connector, like part # 118450, installed inline with the taillights and a 7-Way adapter, like part # 37185, that the 4-Way harness plugs into, you most likely will have to run at least one wire from the blue brake controller output wire to the blue electric brake feed wire on your 7-Way adapter at the...

  • What Size Trailer Can Be Towed With The Draw-Tite Hitch # 36479 On A 2008 Chevrolet Malibu
  • The Draw-Tite Class II 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 36479, will fit a 2008 Chevrolet Malibu. It is a 1-1/4 inch hitch with a gross towing weight capacity of 3500 lbs. The 2008 Malibu will only have a towing capacity of 1000 lbs. So the vehicles towing capacity is what will limit you to how much you can tow. A towing systems capacity is limited by the lowest capacity in the whole system, in your case it is the vehicle at 1000 lbs. I am including a link to the installation instructions on...

  • Will Tow Ready T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118450 Fit My 2010 Chevrolet Traverse w/ Tow Package
  • The item you selected, T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4 Pole, part # 118450, will work on all models of the Chevrolet Traverse. The # 118450 harness plugs in-line with your tail light wiring connectors and is not connected to the fuse block.

  • How Does Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, # 118450 Install on a 2010 Chevy Malibu
  • There are two possible trailer wiring options for the 2010 Chevy Malibu depending on which model you have. All models except the LTZ, use the Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, # 118450. This is a T-One harness that plugs in line with the vehicle taillights. The connectors with the yellow wire go to the left taillight and the connectors with the green wire connect to the right taillight. The white ground wire gets attached to the bare metal surface behind the left taillight. I have included...

  • Transmission Cooler for 2011 Chevy Traverse
  • I would start by determining the towing capacity of the vehicle. I did some research, and saw a range of 2000-5200 lbs depending on how the vehicle was equipped. If you phone your Chevy dealer, they should be able to tell you the towing capacity of your Traverse based on its VIN. If you find that the fully loaded and ready to tow weight of the boat and trailer does not exceed the towing capacity of the vehicle, the only other thing I would consider essential would be an aftermarket transmission...

  • Trailer Hitch and Cargo Carrier Recommendations for a 2012 Chevy Traverse
  • For your 2012 Chevy Traverse I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75528. This is the most popular hitch for your Traverse. It is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver opening. The 2 inch receiver is going to have a higher capacity and be compatible with more accessories compared to lower class hitches. I have included a link to a video showing installation of the hitch for you. For owners of the 2012 Traverse the most popular carrier is Pro Series carrier # 63153. This carrier...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2011 Buick Enclave without Factory Installed 7-Way
  • The replacement 7 and 4-Way trailer connector # HM40975 is designed to replace a factory 7-Way if your 2011 Buick Enclave came with one from the factory. If your Enclave did not come with a factory installed trailer connector and you want to add a 7-Way you would first need to install a 4-Way, # 118450. After the 4-Way is installed to add a 7-Way you would either need adapter # 37185 (if you do not need the electric brake or 12 volt functions to work on the trailer), and plug in the...

  • What Hitch On 2009 Buick Enclave Will Allow The Rear Fascia Door To Be Used

It is a bolt-on installation, no drilling required. I am sending a link to the installation instructions for that hitch.

  • Can Tow Daddy Custom Tail Light Wiring be Used along with a T-One Harness on a 2010 Chevy Malibu
  • The Tow Daddy # TD3006 and the # 118450 can indeed be used together without conflict, but the only problem you might have is the limited amount of space available between the back of the tail light and the vehicle body. Some of your connections might need to be pushed through the grommet into the trunk interior in order to get the tail light assembly put back into place. The Tow Daddy harness should be plugged into the rear of the taillight assembly, the # 118450 connected next and then...

  • Recommendation for Carrying a Wheel Chair on a 2009 Chevy Malibu
  • The trailer hitches for a 2009 Chevy Malibu are Class II trailer hitches with a 1-1/4 receiver so the Brophy carrier, # MSCR, will not fit (unless you have a hitch on the car already that has a 2 inch receiver and the capacity to hold the weight of the carrier, 90 pounds, and the weight of the wheel chair). We do have a wheel chair carrier that will fit a Class II trailer hitch. Take a look at the Trailer Hitch Mounted Scooter / Wheel Chair Carrier, # RHWC1114. With this carrier it will...

The Draw-Tite hitch, # 36479, that you have referenced is the most popular option for the vehicle.

For trailer wiring, use # 118450. I have included some informational links to the hitch and wiring for you. If you will be...

  • Installing Hopkins Agility Trailer Brake Controller # HM47294 in a 2010 Chevrolet Traverse
  • The Hopkins Agility Trailer Brake Controller # HM47294 that you referenced is a good cost-effective proportional brake controller. There are comparable units from Tekonsha, the brand we most often recommend, that offer easier set-up and operation, such as the Prodigy P2 # 90885. However, for occasional use the Hopkins may suit your needs well enough. If your Traverse has the factory tow package (with a 7-way trailer connector installed at the rear bumper) then you can use a quick connect...

  • Does Exhaust get Lowered or Spare Removed to Install a Bosal Trailer Hitch on a 2012 Buick Enclave
  • I spoke with my contact at Bosal about trailer hitch # BSL047283-964 and your 2012 Buick Enclave. First, to install the hitch, he said that you will need to temporarily lower the exhaust, install the hitch, then put the exhaust back in place. This is a very common practice for a lot of hitch installations regardless of vehicle make and model. For the little panel or door that would be removed to used the factory hitch, you would not have to remove it to use a Bosal accessory such as...

  • Procedure and Hardware for Trailer Hitch Installation on a 2012 Chevy Malibu
  • The frame is hollow so there is nothing for self-tapping hardware to grip. Also, frame steel is generally very strong and can even require a special drill bit (rotabroach) so self-tapping hardware would have an even harder time installing. I have linked a video showing a typical installation for you and a link to the instructions. If you plan on doing some towing then the correct ball mount is # 36065. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch use # 19258. For trailer wiring...

  • Where is the Factory Port for Installing a Trailer Wiring Harness on a 2012 Buick Enclave
  • If you are installing a wiring harness like Tow Ready Harness # 118450 then the plug in locations are behind the tail light assemblies. Check out the install video I attached to get a better idea of how it will install. If you have a factory 7-way then you would be trying to install a Tow Ready Wiring Harness # 20119 and that plug would be right under the bumper or possibly above the spare tire.

  • How to Wire a Trailer Connector Harness on a 2009 Chevrolet Malibu
  • If your 2009 Chevy Malibu is not an LTZ model, you do not have to hard wire the connector. You can use a T-Connector style harness, part # 118450, and connect to the connectors at the back of the tail lights. If you do have an LTZ model you will have to hardwire your Malibu using something like part # 119179KIT. We have a video of the installation of a similar part on a 2004 Malibu that will walk you through the process. Due to the body change in 2008 and up models, the wiring may be...

  • Wiring Harness for 2009 Chevrolet Traverse to Tow Trailer With 7-Way Round Connector
  • The 4-pole trailer wiring harness you referenced, part # 118450 from TowReady, is the correct plug-and-play harness for the 2009 Traverse that does not have a factory 7-way socket. In addition to this you will need a 7-way. You can use part # 37185 from Hopkins; the 4-pole flat connector from the harness will plug directly into the Hopkins 7-way, which includes a mounting bracket. The 7-way will then carry the lighting signals from the vehicle. If the trailer has electric brakes instead...
