Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector - 2012 Terrain by GMC

Quickly and easily install a 4-way trailer connector on your GMC Terrain with this custom harness. T-connector plugs directly into existing wiring - no cutting, splicing or tapping required.

Features:

  • Provides a 4-way flat trailer connector at the back of your GMC Terrain 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 behind tail lights
    • Plug in T-connector
  • Comes with dust cap for 4-way flat connector
  • Made in the USA
  • Limited 1-year warranty


Installation

This custom-fit T-connector plugs into your GMC Terrain's wiring harness, which is located behind the driver's-side and passenger's-side tail lights. You will have to remove the tail light assemblies to access this harness.


Once installation is complete, the 4-way connector will be stowed beneath your GMC Terrain, 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 - 2013 Chevrolet Equinox

Today on our 2013 Chevy Equinox, well be installing the Curt Four-pole Wiring Harness, part number 56094. First well need to remove the taillight assembly on the driver and passenger side. To remove the taillight assemblies, well first remove the caps, just a flat-bladed screwdriver, popping them free and setting aside. Then the two screw fasteners by removing them and setting aside. Now well carefully pop the rear taillight assembly out of place, being careful not to break the alignment tabs in the process. Now well go ahead and disconnect the manufacturers wiring by pressing on a locking tab and were removing it from the taillight assembly.

Now we can go ahead and set it aside. Next well go ahead and take our new Curt four-pole harness and plug in line with the manufacturers wiring. As you can see, the wiring connectors match up with the manufacturer. On the driver side, well start with the yellow and brown wire connector. Next well take the four-pole connector and the green and white wire connector that will route over to the passenger side and feed it down between the classic bumper cover and the body or sheet metal of the vehicle.

Now weve got it fed underneath, well go ahead and pull it out, and start routing it over the passenger side. Now well go ahead and repeat the same process on the passenger side. Next well go ahead and take the green and white wire connector and feed it up behind the passenger side taillight assembly. Now we can go ahead and make the connection. Next Ill take a couple of black zip ties and secure the new four-pole harness to the manufacturers wiring behind each taillight assembly.

This will help ensure that the excess wire does not fall down underneath after the installation. Once we secure the new four-pole wire to the manufacturers wiring, well take our side cutters and cut off the excess from the zip ties. Now well take the white wire with the pre-attached ring terminal on the passenger side. Attach it directly to the body of the vehicle using a self-tapping screw. This will be the ground wire for our new four-pole harness.

Now with our connections made behind each taillight assembly, we can go ahead and reinstall both sides. Next well get underneath the vehicle and complete routing our wires. Remember when routing your wires, you want to stay away from excessive heat such as exhaust or moving components such as a steering or suspension. Using some black zip ties, we can secure our wiring as we route it to the hitch. I like to take some black electrical tape and wrap up last 6 going to the four-pole connector as I route it to the hitch. Now well finish securing the wires and then well cut off the excess from the zip ties to clean up our install look. With that done, this will complete the install of our new Curt Four-Pole Wiring Kit, part number 56094 on our 2013 Chevy Equinox.

This wiring harness is very easy to install. I had a bit of trouble getting the tail lights out of our 2012 equinox but with a a second set of hand they slipped out without doing any damage. I used extra zip ties and wire loom to help protect the wire. Be sure to keep it away from the exhaust if you have a V6 with duel exhaust tips. I modified a Curt rubber tube cover to secure the harness to the receiver. I made sure to leave extra wire in behind the hitch so that I can pull it through when I need it. 63065

I've seen many aftermarket hitches that are obviously not built for a specific car, and they look terrible when installed. The hitch I purchased from Etrailer.com was a perfect fit for my car. It was built by Curt Mfg., and was surprisingly easy to install. I had the wiring harness installed in about 45 minutes, and it just plugs into existing wiring (no splicing). And the hitch bolted onto the car with no cutting, drilling or hammering. It was done in about an hour. The finished installation looks like it came with the new car ! The process was much less expensive than having the dealer install it. Excellent product !! 137454

Look, I have no doubt that the product is excellent. After all, it fits perfectly into and with the original equipment. The installation (I took my laptop out to my Equinox and ran through it, step by step) went without a misstep--well, I did drop a screw that held the rear light bracket in place and spent a while retrieving it from inside the car frame, but that was my fault. I also want to note that the video is correct in suggesting using longer zip ties, but I was able to make use of the provided ties, supplementing them with a few of my own. But here's the real deal: The staff at etrailer.com babysit you all the way from order to delivery and beyond. Amazon's a great way to shop, BUT I've ordered twice from etrailer and I'm convinced it is the place to go if you want the right part and SERVICE. Seriously. 135638

I need a wiring product for my 2012 terrain the the local didn't stock the right one. To order One would take three to four days and I needed it quicker then that (poor planning on my part) and they ask over double the price that I got from you. You also gave an option on shipping te and cost. I was very pleased with your service You can always purchase like products but when it comes to service your company stands out. I will be purchasing a flat tow bar in the near future and be ordering it from you. Keep up the good excellent service. Thanks Jim 52012

To EASY to install. I purchased this product for my 2012 GMC Terrain AWD 4 Cylinder. Just like the instructions I removed the screws for the tail lights, popped them off (you need to pull straight back and a little hard because the tail lights have straight clips behind them, they won't break, the clips go straight into the vehicle body) and clipped in the harness as directed. Too EASY. When putting the tail lights back on be cautious not to smash the rubber lining which runs above the tail lights on the vehicle itself. GREAT PRODUCT!!!!!!! 46024

The wiring is very easy to install and worked perfectly for me the first time I used it. The video walkthrough was spot on, it only takes about 15-20 minutes to install and doesn't require you to run a wire up to your batterey at the front end of the vehicle. Besides installing the ground wire with the self-tapping screw, the rest of the instalation only involves plugging in the 4-way adapters to your existing taillight wiring. The product arrived as decribed and I would absolutely reccomend this product. 82234

Of the two Wire Harness's available for the Terrain and Equinox from etrailer, the Curt #56094 is absolutely the one to purchase. With this one, you do not have to run a wire all the way from the back of the vehicle to the front and make a Battery connection, like you have to with the other harness available. Excellent quality and installs easily, without the hassle of running a wire to the Battery. Curt trailer products are second to none. 25947

I had the chevy dealer install the hitch and wiring harness. They told me that the equipment was of great quality and easy to install. I was able to do these type things years ago, but at 75, a person has to admit it's time to let the younger guy's do the work. This is the second hitch and harness I've gotten from you. I have recomended you to several of my frends. Thanks Bob C. 127132

The install went without a hitch, (No pun intended). I liked the product for the 2013 Equinox and the fit was perfect. I would recommend you finish protecting the wire with either plastic spiral wrap or the plastic split wrap to protect the wire from wearing against any sharp edges under the vehicle. It is readily available from your big box hardware store. 86044

This was a small challenge. I did it myself and have very few tools. additionally at 75 with knee replacements I cannot get up and down very well, nor can I sit on my knees. (Butt only) Other than the minor adjustments normal for metal sizing once treated all went very well. Zero issues...."IF" you don't count some pain. Very well constructed product. 105845

Quick delivery. Clear instructions, good quality (good powder coating job). Easy to install (you don't need to move the tail pipe). Make sure weld nuts on the vehicle are cleaned out well before starting. A little grease to the bolts also makes them thread easier. Used with a trailer light kit. As always, very satisfied w/ etrailer.com products. 34262

Simple installation...I mean SIMPLE!!! The only suggestion that I could make would be to have some sort of mounting bracked for the trailer connector instead of letting it dangle loose. I know the instructions show the rubber cap keeping it in place, but that is still a little flimsy. Otherwise, very easy and took 15 mins to install. 32587

Couldn't ask for a more elegant and efficient install. Took all of a half an hour, and it was that long only because of my arthritis. Those cable ties become a bear when you fingers don't work right. And the dealer had the audicity to want a hundred dollars to do the same thing. 20013

Check out the link to the video. At about the 30 second mark, our installer removes the driver side tail light. After that, you can see the two plastic pins, and their corresponding holes, close to the outside edge of the body. Wiggle slightly as you pull straight back, and you should be fine.

  • Does the Computer have to be Reset to Install a Curt Trailer Wiring Harness on a 2012 GMC Terrain
  • I went over the installation instructions and you will not have to have the computer reset when you install the Curt wiring harness, # 56094, on your 2012 GMC Terrain. If you are apprehensive about it, you could always disconnect the negative battery cable prior to installing the harness. You will use any programmed information, like stereo presets, but that is easy enough to reset.

  • Will Trailer Wiring Harness 118264 Fit a 2014 Chevy Equinox without Factory Tow Package
  • If your 2014 Chevy Equinox did not come with the factory tow package then the factory connection point is probably not functional. You can test it with a circuit tester such as # 3808 while someone runs through the lighting functions on the vehicle. If it is functional then you can use harness # 118264. If it turns out not to be functional then you will need either harness # 56094 or # 118494. I recommend the powered harness # 118494 because the direct connection to the battery is sued...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2013 GMC Terrain
  • The biggest difference between the Hidden Hitch part # 87572 and the Curt Hitch part # 13591 that you referenced is the round tube vs. square tube. Another difference is that the Hidden Hitch uses a couple more attachment points. Other than that it looks like the Curt costs a little less. Either would work great for you. If it was me, I would probably go with the Curt based on the price difference. To complete your towing setup you may also be interested in the Curt Trailer Wiring Harness...

  • Advantage to Using the T-One 118494 with Powered Converter over Using the Curt 56094 Wiring Harness
  • The T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector, # 118494, allows you to operate trailer stop, turn, and tail lights but also includes a converter to protect your vehicle's wiring. This powered converter connects directly to your vehicle's battery to avoid overloading the electrical system.

  • Trailer Lights do not Work with the Curt T-Connector Harness # 56094 on a 2013 Chevrolet Equinox
  • According to Curt, the T-Connector Trailer Wiring Harness, # 56094, that you installed is compatible with your 2013 Chevrolet Equinox. It sounds like there may be an issue with the wiring harness itself since your trailer lights work with another vehicle. The first step I recommend taking is to inspect the connections for the wiring harness and make sure it is grounded properly. If you see any pinched, frayed or damaged wires, the harness could be shorting out, which would explain why...

  • If you tested the 4-way of the Curt Connector part # 56094 with a circuit tester like our part # 3808 and got no power out of any of the pins with the different taillight function applied the first thing I would do is make sure you grounded the white wire of the harness to a clean metal surface that touches the vehicle frame. The next thing I would do is make sure that all of the connectors are securely in place. You could even unplug them and then replug them back in. I attached an...
