T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector - 1998 Venture by Chevrolet

Quickly and easily install a 4-way trailer connector on your Chevrolet Venture with this custom wiring harness. T-One connector plugs directly into existing wiring - no cutting, splicing or tapping required. Includes tail light converter.

Features:

  • Provides a 4-way flat trailer connector at the back of your Chevrolet Venture to power your trailer's signal lights
    • Compatible with 5-pole, 6-pole and 7-pole adapters (sold separately)
  • Connects quickly and easily - no cutting or splicing of wires
    • Locate connection points in rear cargo area
    • Plug in T-connector
  • Includes a tail light converter to ensure that your Chevrolet Venture's wiring matches that of your trailer
  • Constructed of 16-gauge bonded wire
  • Comes with dust cap for 4-way flat connector


Specs:

  • Maximum amperage:
    • Stop/turn lights: 2.1 amps per circuit
    • Tail lights: 4 amps per circuit
  • 1-Year limited warranty


Installation

This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your Chevrolet Venture's wiring harness, which is located behind the driver's-side interior trim panel in your rear cargo area. You will need to remove the storage compartment door or trim panel to access the harness.


Once installation is complete, the 4-way flat connector will be stowed in an out-of-the-way location within your cargo area.


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.


Tail Light Converter

A tail light converter is built into this T-One connector. Because most trailers run on a two-wire system - wherein the brake and turn signals are carried on one wire - the separate brake and turn signals from your Chevrolet Venture's three-wire system need to be combined so they are compatible with the wiring system of your trailer. The tail light converter combines the brake and turn signal functions of your automobile so that they run on one wire to properly activate your trailer's tail lights. Note: This will not affect how the tail lights on your Chevrolet Venture operate.

Video Transcript for Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2004 Chevrolet Venture

Today on this 2004 Chevrolet Venture we are going to be installing Tow Ready T-One connector, part number 118355. First we are going to access the rear cargo area. Then we are going to remove the side panel access door. Take it off and set it out of the way. You will see there are two fasteners here holding the black cover on, we are going to remove them now. We will set that out of the way. :23

After you remove the black cover panel you will see the white plug. This will be our new connection point for our Tow Ready connector. Now that we have located our connection point, we will take our Tow Ready connector and plug it in. Next we are going to locate our wire. As you can see it already has a ring terminal on it. We will take the supplied self tapping screw and run it into the sheet metal here behind the trim panel. :45

With our ground wire attached we can go ahead and peel back the double sided adhesive here. What we are looking for is a flat, clean surface to mount our converter box to. We will run our 4-pole connector into the cargo area and reinstall our black cover and the interior trim door. With all of the connections made that completes the install of our new 4-pole connector. To use it, we will route it here, to the outside of the vehicle. The weather seal is thick enough that it will not be harmed when closing the back hatch on it. This completes the install of our Tow Ready T-One connector, part number 118355.

The wiring harness I purchased was extremely easy to install and works great. The hardest part was getting the ground screw in because I did not have the right tools for my drill gun. Went across the street to hardware store and bought it. It probably took me 15 minutes to get the whole project done and lights tested. I would recommend this product to anybody who needs to wire there vehicle. On a side note I did buy dielectric grease just to make sure I got good electrical connection 49409

I ordered this for my montana after trying to wire up a 4 pin plug just to realize that I need a different setup. I order this and followed the instructions that came with it. I had this installed in less then 30 minutes and it worked perfectly. Everything worked. I will definitely look here for more things first next time.88901

Most of my remarks are on the Hidden Hitch review. This connector was another quality product. The on-site video showed me EXACTLY what I would find and where. It was a simple "plug-and-play". Lights work perfect, was enough cable, all the parts were there. Simple. You guys at "etrailer" must actually install these products because everything was right. I can't say enough about how helpful the installation video was!!!!!!!!!!!! (2004 Chevy Venture)55694

Overall, very happy with this product. The screw tab on the black box could stick out further from the body of the box, but I was able to make it work. Everything else worked as the instructions said, and the tail-lights and turn signals on the trailer lit up.44745

Very easy. Did plug and ground through the 12 volt accessory plug door. Pry out the black plastic panel that the 12 volt female plug is on and then unplug its wiring. Adhere to the directions, being careful where you drill the 3/32 hole for the ground wire. I did the ground wire first. I drilled the hole for the grounding screw with a Dremel like tool. It was then a snap to plug in the white plug and stick the black box to a flat spot to the right of the white plug. I then let the trailer plug slide down in back of the plastic side wall and fished it out with my fingers when it reached the floor of the back deck. The air conditioning fan housing looked like it would be annoying, but I found that it was not a problem in doing the work. I did everything through the 12 volts plug opening. There is no need to pry open any other panels. I am very happy with the product and etrailer.com.40165

The trailer wiring harness installed as the instructions said. Took me a little longer to install than estimated since I have the rear A/C and had not installed one on this make of vehicle before. If I put another one on, it would go very quickly. Works great. Very pleased. Shipping was very fast. Ordered on Thursday, received on Saturday. Completed the instillation that afternoon. Thanks for your products and services. Will buy from again. The video for the instillation was great. Thanks for having that on your web site.31538

The product, instructions and your service were all GREAT! Installing the wiring was a piece of cake, and only took about fifteen minutes, with most of that time used to undo a poor wiring job a previous owner of my van had done. The wiring works great, so now I can hook up my boat trailer, and go do some fishing. The next time I need anything auto related. I'll contact etrailer. Thanks again, Dave 28208

Easier than Advertised I was expecting a challenge after researching the installation procedure for this wiring harness for my Montana EXT AWD. Was pleasantly surprised that the factory connector was accessible through the panel by simply removing the air compressor panel. Needed a washer for the ground screw as it would not snug up tight enough to hold the terminal. Just make sure the terminal cannot be turned by hand before replacing the rear interior panel. 3342

  • T-1 Vehicle Wiring Harness Part # 118355 for a 1999 Chevy Venture
  • I am assuming you are needing a T-1 connector, part # 118355. The connection point is behind the trim panel on the drivers side, just behind the taillights. I will provide a link below to the installation instructions, which will explain the whole installation procedure. We also have an installation video showing the install on a 2002 Venture. The procedure would be identical to that of your 1999 model.

  • T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness on 1998 Oldsmobile Silhouette Shorting Out
  • To run down a short in a wire you will need to use a circuit tester, item # 3808 if you need one, to test the wiring and find the short. The place I would start is on the vehicle side of the converter. Check each wire there, with a helper to turn on turn signals and step on the brakes, and be sure that each circuit is functioning properly. While you are behind the taillights make sure the ground wire is attached to a good grounding point. Next I would test the wiring coming out of the convert

  • Will T-One Trailer Wiring Harness, # 118355, Work with a 2001 Pontiac Montana with Air Compressor
  • According to Tow Ready, on some vehicles with air compressors, the plugs will not be accessible through the storage compartment. You would need to pull back the interior trim panels to access the connectors. So the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4 Pole Trailer Connector, # 118355, is the correct harness for your 2001 Pontiac Montana. I have included a link to the installation instructions below. I do not recommend splicing the brake light wire into the turn signal wire as it would cause a

  • Installed Tow Ready Wiring Harness, # 118355, And The Left Brake Light Is Constantly On
  • Sounds like the wiring on your trailer might not be connected properly. You can use a circuit tester like the, # 3808, and test the wire connections on your trailer. The brown wire is for trailers taillights and should be connected to the vehicles taillight. The white wire is the ground and you will want to check and make sure that it has a good, clean ground connection or if your trailer lights are grounded by the mounting studs that it is grounded properly. The yellow wire is for the left t

  • Can 4-Way Trailer Connector Be Routed through 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette Cargo Area Outside the Van
  • When installing the Tow Ready wiring harness, # 118355, on a 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette, the 4-Way is meant to be stowed inside the rear cargo area and pulled out when in use. The hatch door can be closed on the wiring and the weather stripping will protect it. Take a look at the video I have linked as an example. If you wanted to route it through the bottom of the van interior and to the bottom, you may be able to find a grommet at the very bottom of the cargo area through which you can rout

  • Trailer Lights Not Working on a Camper Towed by a 2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette
  • A fuse blowing indicates to me that there is a short. If it happens when you connect the trailer to test the lights then that would indicate a problem on the trailer side. Lets first look at the wiring harness on the van. Make sure the ground wire is attached to a clean metal surface. Moving the ground might help. When you plug in the 4-Way to the adapter, # 30717, make sure the connection is good and tight. You must have the ground wire from the adapter also attached to the vehicle frame.

  • Connecting the Red Brake Controller Wire to the Brake Switch on a 2012 Chevy Equinox
  • Typically on Chevy vehicles like your 2012 Equinox, the brake switch wire you need will be light blue with a white stripe. However, you will need to test with a circuit tester like # 3808 if needed to find the correct wire. The wire you need will show a signal on the circuit tester only when the brake pedal is pressed. If you find any wire that also shows a signal when the running lights or turn signals are on it is not the correct wire.

  • Where is the Trailer Wiring Connection Location on a 2000 Chevy Venture
  • On a 2000 Chevy Venture you will need to pull up the threshold panel in the cargo area so you can pull back the panel on the driver side. The wiring harness should be nearer the end of the vehicle. It can be either a single connector with nothing plugged into it or two connectors connected together. In either case it could be hiding behind another wire bundle or even taped up with another bundle so you cannot see it. I have included links to a couple of videos showing typical installations f

  • Accessing the Plug for a T-One Connector on a 2000 Chevy Venture
  • I am sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your T-connector, item # 118355. Most customers assume that the plug is directly behind the drivers side panel in the rear. But the plug is usually behind the air conditioning unit that is directly behind the panel the air conditioning unit will have to be pulled away to access the plug. I hope this helps.
