Quickly and easily install a 4-way trailer connector on your Honda CR-V with this custom harness. Connector plugs directly into existing wiring - no cutting, splicing or tapping required. Converter is made using SMT to ensure superior performance.
This custom-fit T-connector plugs into your Honda CR-V's wiring harness, which is located behind the driver's-side interior trim panel in your rear cargo area.
Once installation is complete, the 4-way connector will be stowed within the spare tire compartment of your cargo area.
It is recommended that you use a small amount of grease on all electrical connections - the plug on your automobile and the 4-pole connector itself - to help prevent corrosion.
A tail light converter is built into this T-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 Honda CR-V's three-wire system need to be combined so they are compatible with the wiring system of the trailer. This 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 Honda CR-V operate.
Curt builds each tail light converter using surface-mount technology (SMT). This method of construction involves soldering electronic components directly to the surface of a printed circuit board. SMT eliminates the need for leads, which are used in older through-hole technology. The result is a circuit board that is smaller yet provides more routing area and that offers superior performance, reliability and durability.
Circuit boards constructed using SMT have been shown to perform better under rough conditions with excessive vibration than those made using the through-hole method. And where would vibration be more likely to occur than in towing applications? Curt converters also produce less heat, leading to increased durability and longer life. In addition, lower levels of resistance ensure better performance, especially for parts that operate at higher frequencies.
Each Curt circuit board is made using high-quality components that are pieced together in the most technologically savvy fashion, leading to greater predictability and reliability in functioning.

Today we're going to be taking a look at Part Number C55106. This is the Curt T-connector vehicle wiring harness with a 4-pull flat trailer connector. This is going to fit a 2007 to 2011 Honda CRV. It's going to provide your 4-way flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer signal lights. The benefit of a system like this is that it's going to connect quickly and easily. You don't have to worry about cutting or splicing any wires. All you have to do is look at the connection point in the rear cargo area and plug in your connector.
The plugs are going to match up perfectly and they're going to snap and lock into place for a nice tight secure fit. The black box right here, this is going to be your taillight converter. This is included to insure that your vehicle's wiring matches out of your trailer's. It's going to be constructed using surface mount technology for consistent and reliable performance. What that does is it maximizes the trailer light yield and intensity while producing minimal heat and it's going to insure superior operation, even on rough road conditions. Here on the 4-way flat connector we're going to have the included dust cap. That way we can cover up our connection points when our connector is not being used.
You can see here we've got plenty of wiring for the 4-way flat connector. It's all bundled up right now, but plenty of wiring to meet the needs of whatever application that we're using this in and whatever it is that we're hooking up to. Whenever it's fully installed and it's not being used, this is going to be stowed in the rear cargo area in maybe the spare tire compartment, somewhere where you can bundle it up and keep it out of the way. Then you're going to have plenty of length to pull the connector out the back of your vehicle and make the connection when you're ready to use it. When it comes to the maximum amperage for the stop and turn lights, we're looking at 3 amps per circuit and for the taillights we're looking at 5 amps per circuit. You're going to get some very detailed instructions.
These are going to walk you through the installation process step by step. It also includes some nice pictures on there, which for me it makes the installation much easier, so again, detailed instructions. Here in this packet you're going to get some zip ties. Zip ties are included. That way, you can secure any excess wiring or slack in your wiring for a nice clean installation appearance.
You're going to get some double-sided adhesive tape. That way you can mount your converter box. Once your installation is complete, again this is going to be stored in a compartment out of the way. We're always going to recommend that you use a small amount of grease on all electrical connections to help prevent any type of corrosion. If you don't have any electric grease, you can pick up some here on our website. That's going to do it for our review of Part Number C55106. This is the Curt T-connector vehicle wiring harness for 2007 to 2011 Honda CRVs. .
Average Customer Rating: 4.9 out of 5 stars (68 Customer Reviews)Quickly and easily install a 4-way trailer connector on your vehicle with this custom harness. Connector plugs directly into existing wiring - no cutting, splicing or tapping required. Converter is made using SMT to ensure superior performance.

I like the price (about 1/2 of Honda) of this hitch compared to other products. We have a very light kayak trailer to pull so the hitch construction does not appear to be vigorous enough for it's 1,000lb plus rating! It is clearly sufficient for pulling our fully loaded Kayak Trailer (with 3 kayaks and 2 bicycles) but total max weight is less than 350lbs. I do NOT like the electrical connection dangling out from under our rear door!! This is ugly, prone to leaks into the cabin, causes door seal deterioration and very unprofessional install - looking. I used a 3/4 inch drill to put a hole in the bottom of our spare tire holder to route the electrical wiring and connector. The area is a thin steel structure and easily penetrated. To seal it, I put Duct Tape on the inside and outside then coated both sides with the black-tarry undercoat available at AutoZone. My mods, notwithstanding the original installation, cost about $15 plus my time. This installation is in our 2010 Honda CRV and we have driven to FL and back (1,300 miles) with our trailer. It pulls very nicely ...but as may be expected, the CRV's gas mileage suffered. Also, on long or steep hills, the engine worked quite hard to overcome the additional drag (from the high profile) of the trailer and cargo. Although I extended the tongue by 4 feet (to clear the kayak) there is no tendency of trailer sway or bounce excessively and no hitch shifting or looseness. 294464

Pulling the plastic sidewalls out in my new CRV had me a bit worried after watching the youtube vidio. The package included step by step directions including pictures. The instructional pictures were actually pictures of a CRV not a generic one size fits all vehicle. This wiring harness plugged in to an existing connection that Honda had pre wired and it looked exactly like the pictures. 15 minutes tops. It was so easy I had to double check to make sure I didn't miss anything. First time I've ever plugged in a harness, otherwise I was usually under the vehicle and cutting into wires and taping them. 89982
Selecting the proper hitch for my car was very easy. The ordering process was straight forward. The order tracking kept me informed during the entire shipment. Before the product arrived I watched installation videos on YouTube. These made the installation trouble free. Once the products arrived it took me 1 hour to install the trailer hitch, and 45 minutes to install the wiring harness. Everyting is working just as I had hoped. 78526

I finally installed the 'T-connector wiring kit' in my '09 CR-V. It went well, installed in about an hour following the clear instructions. Have not been able to test the install yet because I don't have a trailer, but I don't expect any problems - will contact you if I have. However, I still don't understand the 'T-connector ' description, there is no 'T' involved just a straight connector into the CR-V's wiring system.....Terry L! 79054
by: Joe G04/27/2013
Only difficulty I had was locating the T connector under the trim panel, once found instalation was very easy. 78111

Item arrived but not exactly as described and/or pictured. There was no white (ground) wire to be mounted/grounded. However, I have installed in my 2011 Honda CR-V in about half an hour without any issues. Luckily, I have plenty of extra pins/fasteners in my garage. One should have extra clips and fasteners on hand as there is no way you can save them (and not break them) no matter what tools do you use (I have panel puller and clip removal tool), especially is the car is few years old. They just become brittle and break. Also, as others suggested, it's better to route wiring through some existing hole to the outside of the car (bottom) as they can be easily plugged into. I am happy with this item - like many that I have bought previously. 266675

Great product and great youtube videos for installation. Very good and high quality. 208149
product is good and long enough to plug in to any trailer.it works awesome. didnt have nay problem. it is handy and was easy to install. things could be better: 1) product was not delivered as fast as I expected after paying $4.99 for shipment. bought on 7/31 received on 8/3 so you need to give some time for delivery. 2) instructions came with the product has not been updated so i had to figure out my self how to remove interior panel and managed to plug it in. over all it works great and i would recommend to other users. 93534

I ordered the wiring harness for my 2011 Honda CRV. The wiring harness was perfect, very easy to install, and works great! I am very pleased with this product. Jenn G 255901
by: Chris R.06/16/2014
Product was compatible with vehicle and I'm glad I have purchased it. It installed easily at the t connector the only issue was the amount of trim/panelling I had to remove on the Honda CRV to get to the connection. More the vehicle's fault than the product, but that's the only reason I bumped it down a notch in the rating. Great service from etrailer.com as always! 135822
by: Scott B04/05/2015
Easy install and clear instructions. I purchased this wiring harness along with a receiver hitch. I did not watch an instructional video for the wiring harness, but did for the receiver installation. Really really really appreciate all the instructional and review videos etrailer has for their products they sell. It is what made me buy from them. 183324
by: Bob D.09/21/2016
I installed the wiring harness myself, watched a video that you had for installing that specific item and it said to allow 30 minutes for completion. It took me about fifteen minutes and I am not bragging that I am that good....No it was just that easy. Plugged in the trailer and all lights worked just like they were supposed to. Thanks 297044
by: Steve M06/06/2016
Top rating! This wiring job was the easiest I've done by far. Of course it helps that the truck came pre-wired, but this kit mated up perfectly and worked the first time. The installation video etrailer offers on their website was excellent and gave me additional confidence I could do the job right. 258132

I'm 76 and walk with a cane after suffering a stroke. It took me 15 minutes to install this thing. The hardest part was getting my old bones In and out of the back of my CRV. Be advised, there is a 10mm bolt you should remove when pulling back the driver side interior trim panel. - Piece of cake. 80950
by: Vinson K.07/29/2013
Excellent service. The product arrived within a few days of ordering thanks to a free upgrade. The video helped tremendously with installation. Install was easily completed in one hours time with plenty of time to review instructions/video. All that is left to do is to test the connector. 92202
by: Bernd R07/29/2015
Installing was really easy, since it just plugged into the existing wiring. Everything is hidden behind a panel so there are no wires exposed. The best thing is that there was no guesswork. All of the lights on my trailer work perfectly and I didn't have to strip any wires. 215262

Hitch and wiring harness for 2008 Honda worked as described and fitted perfectly. The only set back to very quick installation was cleaning out the pre-threaded holes on the Honda that have been exposed for 8 years. Once that was done, all went together nicely. 309996

If your going to do something pick the best and I think I did The instructions were even in color which did help and the location I needed to get to was on the instructions once I got there I just pushed the connections together and put everything back on 263419
The YouTube video was awesome. Made it so simple. Went into my crv just perfect. Picked up new trailer this morning, hooked up the flat plug, and BAM, it worked perfect!!!! It just doesn't get any better. Curt connector was the bomb. 238289

The eTrailer Class 1 Bolt-On trailer hitch and the associated Honda CRV plug-and-play trailer wiring harness came right away. The price was the best and their customer response is excellent. I will buy again from eTrailer for certain. 211254
Installation videos really helped during installation. They were a real selling point on purchasing through etrailer. It looks really good on the CR-V, in pictures, yet seeing it on the vehicle is even better. Thank you etrailer! 288032
This is the second connector set I've ordered / installed. This one went in my CRV ( 2007 ). I watched the video, it was a very simple installation. Maybe 30 minutes as I took my time doing the work. 210205
