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.


  • 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


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


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.

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 40165

Hello, I am a 61 year old man,and I have always had trailers since I was a young man.My family has always enjoyed camping in nearby Andirondaks and also on lake Ontario.I am very mechanical and can fix almost anything.Well I always have hard-wiredmy trailer lights myself up until now,and grumbeled about hooking a one bulb system (trailer) into atwo bulb system (car).It has always taken at least hour or two figure out how to wire in converter the proper way. With your system I removed three screws, pulled back side-panel reached in and plugged in the pig-tail conector, anduse self tapping screw to secure ground to body,and shoved convertor and extra wire behind panel,replaced the three screws,plugged in trailer and everything worked perfectly.This is by far easest set-up I have ever done, and will recomend it to all my freinds,Thanks Cal Buerman 156480

Quick and easy to hook up, worked perfectly. The best part was the video that showed where the connector is hidden in the car. I NEVER would have found it! 140643

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

Didn't realize the back AC unit would make it a little more difficult than the video but still and easy install. 41743


I also have a rear ac. Was the connector You plugged this into, Under the vans bottom of drivers side rear of the van??? There is a plug underneath of my van but dont see one inside of the compartment where the air compressor panel is. Also... In the picture of this item it shows two plugs on this item. Did You only use one of them? I can only find one plug on my van ? is the second plug on this extra and not used??Thank You for any help!

comment by: George B - 08/31/2014


Cant remember. No longer have the van so I cant go out and look at it. Sorry.

comment by: David S - 09/03/2014


David, thanks for responding to George's question. George, I did find out that for your van you may only need one connector. Some of the vehicle options have another connector plugged in series with the taillight connector plug, and the second plug is intended to plug everything in-line. This is noted in the installation instructions that are linked on the main product page on the right hand side.

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

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

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

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

If your total trailer weight is close to the limit of the van, then I would suggest a suspension supplement.

  • 2000 Pontiac Montana With Insufficient Voltage for Turn Signal/Brake Lights at Trailer Connector
  • It sounds like you have the ground taken care of. Are you using a tail light converter? Part # 118355 is the converter offered for your vehicle. The factory does provide the port for the towing wiring, but a converter is still needed. If you have a converter installed already, I would recommend testing the wires on the input side of the converter. You should have 12-volts entering and exiting the converter while each function is activated.

  • Since the part # 118355 can fit a few different vehicles with differing setups you will need to check a few places to find the connector you need. First thing I would recommend is checking out the install video I attached to the right that shows this harness being installed on a 2003 Chevy Venture just like yours. Also, some vehicles will only have one connector. Some of the vehicle options have another connector plugged in series with the taillight connector plug, and the second plug...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation for a 2004 Pontiac Montana
  • Actually, all you will need to do is install a wiring harness, # 118355, on your 2004 Pontiac Montana. But if you wanted to use those factory wires, because you have separate wires for turn signals and brake lights, you would first need to install a converter. The converter, # RM-732, takes the separate signals and combines them which is what a trailer uses. To wire it up your yellow wire will go to the yellow wire on the converter, green will go to green, white will go to white, and...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Wiring On 2004 Pontiac Montana
  • The first thing I would recommend is to try connecting the trailer to another vehicle to see if the same problem exists. If not then the problem is going to be found on the Montana. If the wiring harness is hard-wired you will want to check the ground to make sure it is corrosion free and attached to a clean bare metal surface. Check the connector to make sure there are no signs of corrosion or damage to any of the pins and correct as needed. Since the trailer harnesses we offer...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Location of Factory Connection Point for Trailer Wiring Harness on a 2003 Chevy Venture
  • The plug will be there on a 2003. It is just that we have not had a 2003 Venture in to make a video but we have had a 2002 and 2004. To find the factory harness 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. It can also be located behind an air conditioning...

  • Trailer Running Lights Not Working and Other Lights are Dim on Trailer Towed by 2001 Pontiac Montana
  • Since the trailer lights work fine on a different vehicle, I would start looking at the trailer connector on the 2001 Pontiac Montana. If there is any corrosion build up inside the connector then that can cause a poor connection and cause the issue you are describing. If the vehicle side connector is cleaned out, you can go on to testing the converter itself. Start by testing the wiring going into the converter from the vehicle using a circuit tester like # 3808 if needed. If the wiring...

  • Hitch Recommendations for a 2009 Subaru Forester and a 2003 Chevy Venture
  • Both your 2003 Chevy Venture and 2009 Subaru Forester should work very well to pull a light trailer. It is hard to say which vehicle would cause you more issue, but I would think that generally speaking the vehicle with the lower miles should be more reliable. Both vehicles have Class III hitches available for them, but you should check the owners manual of both vehicles to determine the towing capacity of both to determine if one has higher towing capacities. Other things to consider...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2003 Chevy Venture Needing to Transport a 460 lb Power Chair
  • For your vehicle there currently isn't a hitch available that would have the capacity to carry the weight of your power chair (460 lbs) plus the weight of a carrier. If your 2003 Chevy Venture is your only option for transporting the power chair your only real option would be to get a small trailer. A hitch like the # 87410 would work well for this, but it only has the tongue weight rating of 350 lbs which is not enough for the 460 lb scooter on a carrier. Wit a trailer most of...
