Video Transcript for Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2006 Lincoln Town Car

Today on our 2006 Lincoln Town Car, we'll be installing the Curt upgraded circuit protected tail light with converter hardwire kit with a 4-pole end and it includes a tester. Part number 56146kit.Now to begin with, we'll go ahead and open up the rear trunk of the vehicle. To remove the rear threshold we'll need to remove four push fasteners, two on each side up high and two in the center.Once we have all four of these fasteners removed, we can go ahead and pop the rear threshold out. Either a large flathead screwdriver or a trim panel removal tool works well for doing this.Next we'll go ahead and remove the trunk lining. We'll also have to take off the cover that covers up the spare tire. There's another nut cover that you'll need to remove.

Next over here on the driver's side, we'll take a plastic nut cover off and then you'll slip the lining up over the stud. There's also one push fastener just up in front of where the emergency fuel shutoff location is. We'll go ahead and remove the whole trunk lining and set is aside for now.We'll also go ahead and take out this piece of inaudible 01:34 material because we'll be needing to gain access to a grommet that's underneath it. Now we'll go ahead and take our test slide and figure out which wires do which so we'll know what color of wires to connect to the new convertor box. Now with the running lights on, we found that the orange wire with the blue stripe over here on the driver's side is both the left turn as well as the stop signal.

Over here on the driver's side, we will be connecting the yellow wire to the orange wire with the blue stripe on it. We will be using the quick splice connectors to make these connections.Now for the running light, we found that the brown wire is the running lights circuit. We'll be connecting the brown wire from the converter box to the brown wire here on the wiring harness. Over here on the passenger's side we need to figure out which is the turn signal. Again on this side it actually is the orange wire with the blue stripe on it.

Over here on the passenger's side, we'll be tying in the green wire off the converter box again with the orange wire with the blue stripe.Now that we have all our wires connected here at the back, the yellow wire to the orange wire with the blue stripe over here on the driver's side. The brown wire with the brown wire on the driver's side and the green wire with the orange wire with the blue stripe over here on the passenger's side. Now you will notice that there is a black wire that's connected to the converter box, this a 12-volt power supply wire. We will need to tie in the extra supplied wire using a butt connecter and route this up to the battery.Because this vehicle is a two-wire not a three-wire system, we will need to take the red wire on the converter box, add a ring terminal to it and add it in with the ground which is the white wire that already has a ring terminal on it. Now we'll go ahead and put our two wires that are going to be grounds which is red as well as the white wire into the body using the self-tapping screw supplied with the kit.

Now it is a good idea to find an area where the body has been doubled up to give you a good solid ground.We'll also go ahead and take the two-sided tape supply and put it on the back of the converter box, and then secure the converter box to the inside of the trunk of the vehicle.Next we're going to go ahead and take a razor knife and put a small X in the grommet right here on the trunk pin up here on the passenger's side. We'll then go underneath the vehicle and take the long extension piece of black wire that comes with the kit and push it back up into the trunk. We'll then pull it over and make a connection with the black wire off the converter box using a butt connector.Once that's done we'll pull any excess wire back out down underneath the trunk, because we'll need all this wire to gain access up to the battery. A quick tech tip: We did route the wire up and around in the trunk pan which caused us to actually add about two to tow-and-a-half feet of wire to reach the battery. If you just route the wire straight across the trunk pan and out the grommet, you should have plenty of wire to reach the battery without having to add any extension piece.Now that we have our wire through the grommet, we'll go ahead and add a little bit of silicon to seal back up the grommet. The silicon gasket maker that we used is part number LT37467.Now that we have all the connections made in the trunk, we can go ahead and put the trunk back together in the reverse order that we took it apart. Making sure we put all the push fasteners back in as well as the nut covers.Now that we have our black power wire hanging out from underneath the vehicle through the grommet here in the trunk pan, now we're going to need to route it up to the battery. To do this we're going to use an old section of airline tubing to help us fish the wire through the frame of the vehicle. Now you'll also notice that we used a small section of wire loom to help protect the wire until we got it into the frame of the vehicle. The wire loom part number is 459075-1 and it is sold by the foot. You will need about two feet of wire loom total.Next we'll go ahead and route our wire up through the frame and come up out just behind the passenger side front wheel. Now as you're routing the wire up to the front, it's also a good idea to use a few zip ties to help secure the wire whenever needed.We then have to pull the pole-wire out of the frame a couple of times and then feed it back in as there are a couple of spots in the frame that you need to make sure that the wire routes through. It's good to have a flashlight on hand to make sure that you're going in the right spot of the frame to make it go all the way to the front of the vehicle.Now that we have the wire up to the front of the vehicle, you'll notice that we actually added about three foot of extra wire in length. As I said earlier this is because we routed it around the trunk pan instead of going straight across the trunk pan to the grommet. For our extension, we used the same gauge wire and just added a butt connector in to give us the extra length we needed to get to the battery.Now that we've got our wire pulled up into the engine compartment, we'll route it up next to the battery and we'll need to add in our fuse holder. We'll simply take the fuse holder and using a butt connecter connect one side of it to our black wire . and on the other end we'll connect the ring terminal. This ring terminal will tie in with the positive side of the battery.Now because the nut does not completely come off the positive side of the battery terminal, we'll go ahead and snip out the center of the ring terminal then allow it to slide right over the stud then we can go ahead and tighten it back down.Now that we've got our connection with the battery done, we'll go ahead and put the 10-amp fuse into the fuse holder. With the fuse in place, we're ready to test out our new 4-Flat. We'll go ahead and take our test light and have someone run through the light functions. We'll take the ground on the test light and connect it to the open prong on the 4-Flat and then turn the running lights on. With the running lights on you'll touch the brown wire on the 4-Flat. As you can see here we get a constant light and a beep. For the left turn we'll touch the yellow wire. For the turn signal it's an intermittent beep or flash. For the right turn on passenger's side we'll touch the green wire, again an intermittent beeper flash and for the brakes it will be a constant light or beep for both the yellow and the green wire. As you can see here, everything's working just fine. When not using it you can just simply store your 4-Flat in the trunk area. When you want to use it, simply pull it out and let the trunk lid close down making sure that we keep the wiring away from the center-latch potion of the trunk as this can easily damage the wire. The weather stripping that goes around the trunk will simply push down allowing the wire to fit in between the trunk lid and the body of the vehicle.You'll also notice that the kit comes with a cover that'll cover up the 4-Flat ends. This will keep any dirt and debris from getting in the connection points. With that, that will conclude our installation of the Curt upgraded circuit protector taillight with converter hardwire kit with 4-pole end part number 56146kit on our 2006 Lincoln Town Car. .

Installing this kit in my 2010 Jetta Sportwagen (TDI) was not as easy as I hoped, but ultimately I was able to pull it off. I would have had much less confidence without the video. Routing the power wire from the spare tire well to the battery was the most time consuming part of the install. In the end the power wire ended up being juuuuuust the right length, but I used every inch of it. For most of the run I was able to rest the wire above various pieces of plastic splashguard (while still using plenty of zip ties), so it has some extra protection from the elements. Getting all the quick-connect splices done for the driver's side lights was tough. I didn't quite understand why in the video they didn't just feed the wires for the passenger side blinker, ground, and power from the lights to the trunk, which would put the converter box where it needs to be from the very start. Instead they recommend feeding the wires the opposite direction—from the trunk to the lights—and then you have to cram the converter box through the trim piece that has not been removed after connections are made. I did it that way too, thinking that maybe things would be less cluttered during the critical splicing step. It worked out okay, but if I did it again I'd probably do as I described and avoid having to shove the converter box through the trim. When I did that, one of the pieces of trim hardware popped off and disappeared somewhere below. One step I recommend adding whichever way you do it would be to peel the white ground wire away from the three it's attached to before feeding things from the trunk to the driver's side lights (or whichever direction you choose), which allows you to more easily connect the ground. As for the three splices on the driver's side, there is no play in the wires, the trim wants to spring back closed all the while, and for a regular two-handed guy who doesn't have much experience with DC wiring it was tricky. I did get all the connections made in the end, and I'm getting the right signals and voltage on all the connectors. I'm sure the video saved me hours and helped me avoid a lot of mistakes. 132574

I had the hitch and wiring delivered to a company that specialized and supposedly installed a lot of hitches. They have numerous locations, but only one did all of the hitch installs, about 15 miles from home. I brought my vehicle there so they could check that there would be no problems with what was shipped directly to their business, and I was assured that there would be no problems. They also gave me a firm estimate of two hours to complete the job. It turned out that no-one in the place knew how to do the electrical so the wiring was given back to me but they would not back down from the original price quote even though it was not finished and they recommended I go to another shop, not one of their shops, that REALLY works with hitches and they could do the electrical. Simply overpaying for the incomplete work plus "shop supplies" and taxes for labor (unusual in my state) was better than giving myself a heart attack. I've been cheated a lot when I was in business and always fought back and I treated vendors and customers with respect. I'm almost 80 now and I have a different outlook. I did go to the REAL trailer hitch installer that they recommended and they completed the wiring at a fair price, even though it was supposed to be done ad part of the original estimate at the first shop. None of this has anything to do with your product and "Your Product Review". I'll submit a photo of the car with the hitch installed. It does look like it belongs on the car and is not at all a distraction from the cars looks. Great product. You guys are great by delivering what was promised. The car is only a week old. You did great, and I love the finished installation if it doesn't fall off by being installed incorrectly. 127504

Wow....not an easy project for the Cadillac SRX. You have to do a lot of disassembly in the back to get to the wires and then try to get to the nuts holding the lights...good times. The directions were pretty good until I got to how to wire it up. Do I splice the wire, how does this work? Didn't know so I quit and put the components back together. Started at 8am and quit at 11am and I didn't even get the wiring hooked up. After I got it all put back together, I got a call from Tech Support telling me the wires don't get cut rather the blue splice connectors (splicing got me) are there for you to just put the wire in and crimp it down. I'd change that name and call them wire run-throughs or power connectors. When you say splice, I think I need to splice the wire. Good thing I didn't and quit. You should give yourself all day to get this project done if you haven't done one of these before. I have hooked up wiring on a dodge ram, pacifica and chevy silverado and were dead simple. This is not. A smart engineer out there needs to come up with an adapter that would use the plug from the taillight and allow the user to unplug the taillight, plug into the adapter and the adapter into the light. I think if you complete this project, you should get some kind of degree from ITT for wiring. 132100

I purchased this unit for my solara 05' and works very well. if you know how to locate your existing source of signals your fine. I mounted the control behind the plastic trim just inside the trunk where there were plenty of room. locating the turn signal wires and brake signals was not so bad. the contol was identifed very well for wire color and what it did. you pick up a completely seperate main power source from battery so you dont burden your existing circuits or fuses. I routed the hot wire under my car with the fuel lines which made it simple, used a spare tubing path that was empty. I get full lights, bright and worked first try. 89658

So I missed the part about mounting the electronic pak on the driver's side. The wire for the passenger side signal is about 6 feet longer than the rest because it needs to reach over there. Don't make my mistake and mount the kit on the passenger side. It was a very simple and sweet installation, everything you need is in the kit and it fits almost anywhere behind the driver's side tail light. The installation video wants you to run the power wire outside and under the car--don't do that. I have an '05 civic and I popped the door channel trims and ran the power wire from the trunk thru the door channels and up behind the glove box. I used a sharpened coat hanger wire to carefully pierce the rubber grommet that surrounds the wire bundle from the ECU, gaining access to the engine bay just behind the steering rack on the passenger side. The battery is just forward of the strut tower from there and its easy to secure the new power wire. The kit works like a charm and its invisible with the wire tucked under the spare tire area. 135720

Overall it looks like this harness will work. A couple of points that are good to know. Splicing into the existing drivers side wires is extremely tedious work standing in a very awkward position just outside the tail gate. The scotch splicers just barely fit clustered together since there is no slack in the car wiring itself. There is very little guidance given on how to run the power line to the battery. A make/model specific schematic showing suggested attachment points would really help. The power tester that comes with the kit doesn't work by attaching to the little posts as shown in the video. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong, but compared to the video this project seems much more difficult and time consuming. Allow for plenty of time and don't rush this project. If you can get the car on jacks it will make running the power wire much easier. Definite room for improvement, but the product does work if installed correctly. 79777

I was very pleased with the product and the packaging. Since my vehicle was previously wired for a converter, I simply removed the fuse and tapped into the existing wiring, re-installed the new converter and cable tied the wires and converter in place of the old one. Pictures included. By the way, I will be 81 this coming September. 141476

The kit arrived with everything one would need to do an OK installation, provided your car was only two feet wide. The signal input wire for the right turn signal was very, very short. So short that I had to solder in a two foot extension to get it to reach accross my VW Golf (Mk6). The power wire was significantly larger than the unit's power wire and the fuse holder to which it must connect, it also came with butt connectors and no heat shrink or tape for strain relief. I ended up soldering and heatshrinking all power connection because it's just not worth having a hot wire flopping around the car to save me 5 minutes of work. Butt connectors fail. Always. I got this kit because it was half the price of comparable kits (still a ridiculous price for $3.72 worth of transistors and diodes), so I knew it would take some extra work. So far, I got what I paid for, nothing unexpected. Serviceable. 100412

This part gets the job done at a fair price, and with ease. The included voltage tester makes finding the proper wires a breeze, and the instructional video made the rest of the install a no-brainer. It was my first electrical project of any sort, nonetheless on a car, and I was done in less than a couple hours; including taking apart my trunk and putting it back together. Only thing I would change is using a longer wire to go from the module to the battery - the included wire doesn't have a lot to spare, and took a couple tries to make it all the way to the battery without having to add any wire. Not a real problem, but a little more length would have been a luxury. In the end, it works, and it's pretty easy to make it look professional enough that people could think the car came equipped with this from the factory. Good deal if you ask me. 41316

I bought this to install on our 2005 Subaru Legacy. The installation was pretty easy. The videos here on the website were very helpful to explain the installation process, as were the instructions that came with the harness kit. The harness just connects to the wiring for the tail lights on the back of the car and then you have to connect the control box to the battery, as well as the ground wire. The kit seems to be made very well. The blue splicing connectors are very easy to use and the circuit testor that came with the kit was quite useful. 142916

Works like a charm on my 2013 Toyota Prius , though it was a chore compared to the T-one connector by Tow Ready I installed on a previously owned Toyota Prius. Tow-Ready really needs to make that product for this year of Prius! Some tips- look up Ted K's install review of this on a Toyota Prius 2013, he told you which wire color is what light and how to remove panels access the light wires. The only thing I'd add is once you get to hooking it up and testing with the trailer lights, don't forget the last step, putting the fuse into the fuse holder! I had a short moment of disappointment before I realized I needed to do one more thing! Ta-dah! 138056

Easy installation on the 2004 X3 3.0i. Very high quality kit. I simply followed the excellent video for the X3 also on this site at http://www.etrailer.com/Custom-Fit-Vehicle-Wiring/BMW/X3/2004/56146KIT.html?vehicleid=20049943. It installed just as explained and the adapter works perfectly. Tip: Make sure you have a good wire crimp tool like the one used in the video. Don't use pliers or the ones on the cheap flat stripper tool. You can get a set for about $10 at Lowe's or Home Depot. It will make all the difference. I am very happy with etrailer, great products, reasonable prices and great service. You can't go wrong. 68482

I have bought many products in the past hitches and harnesses. Stuff is right, never needs fabrication and is top quality material. I only wish they would add some extra solder less connectors so when you mess up you don't have to go to parts store. Harness kit comes with 12v tester great addition since I last ordered.

The Jetta Sportwagen (2010-2011 confirmed, may be other years) has modulating taillights. Other Curt adapters may work. Figuring out the signals with modulating lighting can be painful. This is what works for 2010-2011 Jetta Sportwagen: Driver's side: Gray / Black (pin 1): Tail Light Black / Red (pin 2): Brake Brown (pin 3): Ground Black / White (pin 4): Left Turn Black / Blue (pin 5): Reverse Passenger's side: Gray / Black (pin 1): Tail Light Black / Purple (pin 2): Brake Brown (pin 3): Ground Black / Green (pin 4): Right Turn Black / Blue (pin 5): Reverse 27373

Product was only a minor challenge to install on Lexus LS due to some difficulty in routing the power wire from the battery to the trunk. Found a rubber grommet under tail light that easily punctured and then sealed with silicone for the power wire. LED tail and brake wires on this car are very small - half the guage of the turn signal wires - so the quick clips took extra care to line up correctly. I have heard tales of the LED wires being cut completely thru by the splice, so care should be exercised to be sure the wiring is lined up properly. Otherwise, great product! 86943

Let me start off by saying that shipping through etrailer is excellent, everything that I've ever ordered through this company has been shipped within 15 minutes of when I placed the order, which Is outstanding. Also, the products that I've ordered have been defect free, and meet every standards that I had, and then some! The wiring for my 2001 Lincoln Town Car came with perfect instructions, and I got it installed by myself in under an hour. Thank you etrailer for having everything I need, having good work ethics, and excellent shipping! Don't ever change. (: 114742

My wiring in my 1998 mazda( ranger) b4000 could not handle all the new lights from my new tent camper so I went on line to find a converter that was powered straight from the battery and found kit 56146 which works perfectly now. All my lights work and installation was a snap, I encased the battery wire in flexible tubing for extra safety. Every thing else I needed was in the kit, thanks to a quick deliver I got to go camping on time for Grandsons spring break safely. This kit is fused at the battery and is very safe in case of shorts or overloads. Al 73418

Mounted this on a BMW X1 (2013). This kit is not vehicle specific. I had plenty of Power cable as the battery is rear mount, but hardly an inch to spare for any of the other wires. The instructions were pretty vauge and there is no vehicle specific information to help you find the correct wires, etc... It would be nice if etrailer provided custom instructions to specific vehicles as Crutchfiled does for stereo installations. However, I'm no newbie when it comes to wiring, so I managed to get a very functional and clean install of this kit. 60040

As mentioned in my review of the entire Rcvr and wiring process, no "plug & play" wiring harness yet exists for the Ford C-Max so you have to crimp into existing wires to make the connections. Found it better to wire into the driver's side harness and run the right turn signal wire over to the other side of the C-Max. The kit included everything I needed so installation was straight-forward. Def recommend the E-Trailer product line for users of any vehicles. You wont be disappointed. 110842

I installed this product in a 2013 Prius Plug-In. The install itself was fairly cumbersome, as there was a fair amount of disassembly required to access the necessary wiring. In the end, the product fit nicely and functioned perfectly. My only "complaint" was that the LED tester was so dim that it was very difficult to dicern on/off in the sunlight. 75995

Hi, Im installing this kit on 2013 prius two base, does anyone know how to check the tail light wire or its colors?Thanks a lot.

I recommend using a circuit tester like the # 40376
Circuit Tester Kit
$48.95
to verify the functions of the wires on your Prius. There are several videos on the product page that show how to use the tester for verifying the functions for trailer wiring harness installation.

The install is not too bad if you have done any basic electrical before. We have in fact shot a video fo the installation of this kit on a 2010 Jetta Wagen that should be pretty helpful for you, check the link below. The hitches available for the 2009 SportWagen have a 200 pound tongue weight capacity and a 2,000 pound trailer weight capacity. You should check the owners manual to see if it states a lesser capacity, if so, that is the figure you should abide by.

Installed this myself on my 2011 Jetta TDI SportWagen. The included instructions are not much help, but the videos here on etrailer tell you everything you need to know. Definitely watch them through a couple of times and expect that your install will take a little longer than when the pros do it. Not that hard. Works great once installed. Very nice that I can switch between trailers with incandescent and LED lights without worry. 94150

The trailer wiring kit for my Nissan Murano, with the circuit protected tail light unit worked flawlessly. The instructions were easy to follow and the installation went well. The only difficult part was the testing of the wires to determine tail light, brake light and right /left turn signals, which was very time consuming, cumbersome and required an additional person. I am very happy with the Curt trailer tail light wiring kit. 66182

I purchased the Curt wiring harness and it came with all the necessary parts and accessories. The instructions were generic making finding the specific wires a little difficult, but not a problem once I took the rear light out so I could find the brake light wire. Depending on the ability of the installer this could result in trouble. Details identifying the specific wires would have been nice. 77064

The kit was somewhat easy to install. The only problem with the kit is, the brown wire from the box goes to the orange wire and the red wire goes to the blue wire. Once I figured out that to do it became very easy. Great kit, as stated above the brown wire showes on your web site going to the blue and the reds wire going to the orange. Reverse the two and it works great. Thanks 129493

Perfect fit for my 2008 rabbit though the cross bar made contact with tail pipe. All I did to remedy the situation was to put a regular exhaust clamp (I believe it was a 2 1/2") around the last rubber exhaust hanger, as you tighten the clamp just keep an eye on the tail pipe as you eliminate the contact. Stop as soon as you get about 1/4-1/2 in. 127842

This is a good electrical design. Mounting may vary however. The 2011 VW Jetta has panels which must be removed so the adapter can be mounted. These are held on by plastic snap screws which may break if removed. Fishing the battery wire to the front can be challenging if you don't have the car on a lift. I persevered and it works great. 50721

The kit was pretty straight forward to install. It was a little tricky getting access to the area in my GX470, where the wires were routed, but once in there it went well.
