Quickly and easily install a 4-way trailer connector on your Nissan Pickup with this custom wiring harness. T-One connector plugs directly into existing wiring - no cutting, splicing or tapping required. Includes tail light converter.
This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your Nissan Pickup'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 flat connector will be stowed beneath your Nissan Pickup, 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.
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 Nissan Pickup'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 Nissan Pickup operate.

Today, we're going to review part #118353. This is the Tow Ready T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with the 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector. This part number is a custom-fit part number. It is designed to fit the 1986 1/2 to 1997 Nissan Pick-ups and 1987 to 1995 Nissan Pathfinders. I would recommend to go to our website and put in your year and model vehicle and it will tell you exactly if this would work for your application. This does include everything shown here on the table: the wiring harness, the set of directions, some zip ties and a grounding screw. This will provide a 4-way flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights.
It does connect quickly and easily. There is no cutting or splicing the wires. Basically you just connect these to behind the driver's side and passenger's side taillights. They use these plug-in T connectors. It does include this taillight converter right here and this is designed to ensure that your vehicle's wiring will match the head of your trailer.
Most of the wiring on here is a 16-gauge bonded wire. It does come with a dust cap already installed on the 4-way, so basically when you're not using it, when you're not towing, you can just pop the dust cap right on to protect it. Now, a few specs on this harness: the maximum amperage for the stop and turn light circuit for this is 2.1 amps per circuit, on the taillights is 4 amps per circuit, and basically, it does come with a nice set of instructions with diagrams of where the points are. Basically, if you just go to the rear of the vehicle, and again, access behind your taillights, and what you do is start with this one that has the yellow wire into it. Connect this to behind the taillights. Have this extra white wire with an eyelet on it.
What you want to do is connect this to a good, clean ground, or drill a hole and use this existing screw to get a good, clean ground. Then what you'll do is run this green wire, it's an extra length of wire. This will run over to the passenger side. This would connect behind the passenger side taillights. Now your converter has a double-sided tape on it.
Once you get where the wires are all connected, you want this to be secured, you just peel that, stick it down to a nice flat surface so the converter doesn't move around, and then you just run your length of wire out to the rear of your vehicle. When you're not using it, you can fold it up and put it inside the vehicle. That should do it for the review on part #118353, the Tow Ready T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with the 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector. .
Average Customer Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars (47 Customer Reviews)Quickly and easily install a 4-way trailer connector on your vehicle with this custom wiring harness. T-One connector plugs directly into existing wiring - no cutting, splicing or tapping required. Includes tail light converter.

Talk about easy to install; snap snap, drill 1 hole and BINGO. Only way it could be any easier is if you guys did it for me. GREAT product. 78851

New trailer wheels and wiring harness arrived well-packaged on two days ago. (Ground shipping via UPS from Missouri to SoCal took fewer than seven days despite a two day week-end lay-over in San Bernardino.) I was kept informed by eTrailer folks at the time of order, the time of shipping, and asked for follow-up. What more could I possibly ask for? All are installed and function as promised. Thank you. I recommend eTrailer to everyone who will listen. 134244
I've just installed the wiring harness and so far everything has gone well. Just one light on the trailer wasn't working in one condition but after messing around with the trailer wiring (not the harness purchased) and the connection of the wiring harness, it everything was working fine. It's a breeze to install and works great. I'm only rating it as excellent because at this time it is and no problems with the product, order, shipping or anything else. 38706

WOW! I wish they had these when I bought my little truck in 1988! I pulled out all the old corroded spliced in trailer wiring from my little Nissan truck, plugged in this kit (about 20 minutes total!) and everything worked perfectly. Nice to not have any splicing on the wires :-) I will definitley look for this product again if I am in need. Shipping was quick as well A+++ rating, thank you! 78853

This wiring harness went into my truck easily and quickly. I was very happy with the product, the instructions, and with how it worked after my installation. My buddy helped me, and when we finished he asked "hey, do they have one that would fit my truck". I was happy with the price, delivery time, and the installation. bob 31354
Very easy to hook up this is my 2nd product i bought from etrailor great customer service you guys are great thanks again 80248
The biggest problem was getting the original wiring harness apart. Once that was done everything went pretty smooth. I did have to enlarge the holes on the PU body to get the connectors through. This was an easy way to hook up the lights on the trailer to my Nissan PU. Sure beats the way I used to do it. 123234

The wiring harness I purchased was very simple to install. Just like advertised take 2 connectors loose and place each harness end between the plugs per directions. They work great. Renee K. is awesome, very friendly and knowledgeable. Thanks 153048
I recently purchased the 118353 trailer light kit for my 1996 Nissan pickup. The instructions were clear, and the fit of the lighting kit was perfect. All the truck lights and trailer lights work perfectly after the install. Shipping was very fast. Couldn't ask for anything better. 209025

This is a great product, and it was so easy to install. Start to finish, less than 20 minutes...and I even routed the connector through floor of my truck. E-trailer will handle any of my future towing needs. 14460

This is a great product. Had a Hopkins harness first would not work. The etrailer harness is vehicle specific so the brake lights work correctly. The "Hoppy" brand the brake lights want work properly. 7822

Excellent function and design, but I did run into a grounding problem and had to run a ground wire back to engine compartment. The directions should include a notice for this situation. 106019
