Quickly and easily install a 4-way trailer connector on your Saturn Vue with this custom wiring harness. T-One connector plugs directly into existing wiring - no cutting, splicing or tapping required. Circuit-protected converter guards against shorts.
This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your Saturn Vue'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 Saturn Vue, 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.
Circuit-Protected 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 Saturn Vue'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 Saturn Vue operate.
This converter safeguards itself and your vehicle against possible electrical shorts and overloads with integrated short circuit protection. Just install the connector as indicated and rest assured that the wiring system of your vehicle will remain feedback-free.

Today we're going to be taking a look at the T1 vehicle wiring harness with the 4 pull flat trailer connector. This product fits a 2002 to 2007 Saturn Vue. The unit is going to provide a 4 way flat trailer connector at the back of the vehicle to power your trailer signal lights. It is compatible with 5 pull, a 6 pull, and 7 pull adapters. Adapters are sold separately. It's going to come with a dust cap for the 4 way flat connector.
That way you can cover up the connection points when the plug is not being used. The black box right here, this is going to be the included taillight converter, this is going to insure that your vehicles wiring matches that of your trailers. It's going to provide protection against electrical shorts and overloads. Now, this systems going to connect quickly and easily, you don't have to worry about cutting or slicing any wires. All you have to do is look at the connection points behind your taillights, so there's going to be one connection point on the passenger side of your vehicle, and there's going to be one connection point on the driver side of your vehicle. You got 2 sets of connectors, so you find those connection points and then you plug each side into its correct location. Now, these plugs are going to match up perfectly with the plugs on the vehicle, they are going to snap-lock together for a nice tight secure fit.
Once you have the T connectors plugged in, you'll need to make a ground connection. Your ground wire is going to be your white wire with the attached ring terminal. You want to get that grounded to a nice clean metal surface with the included grounding screw, then you can mount the converter box. That's going to be the black box, you can get that mounted to a nice clean out of the way area using some zip ties, or you could use some adhesive tape. it does have a mount hole right there so you could actually use a screw as well to get that secured. Multiple options to get that mounted.
Once you have all that done you'll need to secure any excess wires that you have or slack in the wiring, with the included zip ties. Just clean up the installation and keep your wires safe and secure. Then once your installation is complete, the 4 way connector is going to be stowed beneath the vehicle near the trailer hitch. You can loop it around a safety chain loop, or you could use a mounting bracket. Those are going to be sold separately but we do recommend a mounting bracket to keep the connector secure.
It's also recommended you use a small amount of dielectric grease on all your electrical connections, and the 4 pull connector itself, that way you can make sure those connection points are going to be protected from corrosion. That grease is sold separately, dielectric grease you know find it right here etrailer.com the maximum amps for the stop and turn lights s 2.1 amps per circuit. For the taillights we're looking at 4.2 amps per circuit. The unit also comes with detailed installation instructions to walk you through the whole process step by step. That's going to do it for today's look at the T1 vehicle wiring harness with the 4 pull flat trailer connector.
Average Customer Rating: 4.9 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. Circuit-protected converter guards against shorts.
I recently purchased the 118418 T-connector for my Saturn Vue to haul a Scout Trailer. Watched the video once and had this installed in 15 minutes. Super simple to install and use. Since I have a Reese tubular hitch, I had to buy an adapter to mount the plug in an odd place, but the connector itself works and that is all I need it to do. E-trailer made it extremely simple to install a trailer light hook-up, in fact, I will be ordering another one soon for another vehicle and will have my 13 year old son install it. 54603

I've had a trailer hitch for about 3 yrs now but nobody had a quick connect wiring harness till I found this one. I didn't follow the directions to an exact "T" because I wanted my 4-flat plug to stay inside the car unless I'm hauling somthing. But I had the whole thing installed in about 20 mins. Best investment I've made. I'm trailering my new motorcycle next week. At least now I won't have to borrow trucks and such. I can go buy my own trailer. Worth the extra $ for quick connect. Solid product 55958

Everything came in quick and correct. My threaded bolt holes in the frame of my vehicle were a little rusty, so I had a little trouble cleaning the rust out to receive the bolts that came with the hitch. I was not surprised though because the video I watched showed me how to clean out the bolt holes. Also two of the bolts would not go all the way in. Went to local hardware and bought two shorter bolts and fixed problem. Overall pretty simple. Would highly recommend. 159515

The video made it easy. Popped a few of the wheel well "buttons" out and fed the wiring through the taillight assemblies. You can tuck the wiring up in the fascia or tie to the hitch frame, either way you really won't see it. We just hooked up the ground to the the quarter panel retaining bolt since it was right there anyway. No need to drill a hole in your vehicle. Tested the lights once it was all set up, no problems on either the Vue or the trailer. 34324

The product was as expected and well assembled. The directions were aided greatly by the Your Tube video and installation time was much less than expected. Because of the video I expected the mounting plate for the 4 pin connection this, however, was simply my mistake and I can order that bracket separately. Over all I am very pleased withthe product and ease of installation. Well done! 125370

Great product and service! Ordered wiring harness on Saturday, had it by Tuesday.Instructions were spot on and easy to follow. Didn't have to cut and splice any wires, everything plugged right up, wires were the perfect length, took less than an hour. I wish all my "projects" were this easy.Thanks! 58810
I ORDERED A TOW HITCH AND WIRING KIT FOR MY SATURN VUE. IT CAME THREE DAYS LATER, EARLIER THEN PROMISED. NOT ONLY WAS THE PACKAGE COMPLETE, BUT IT FIT ONTO MY VEHICLE LIKE A GLOVE. NOW MY FAMILY AND I CAN HIT THE LAKE THIS SUMMER WITH OUR NEW BOAT!!! VERY HAPPY WITH ETRAILER!! 65985
Kit is exactly like the picture and vids, easy as pie to install. Like everyone has stated, the wire to fish through is too short, needs to be longer but I guess they need to save costs lol. If you expand and flatten the wire completely straight, its just long to reach through. 39960

Hitch and wiring harness fit perfectly on our 2005 Saturn Vue. Will use to pull fishing boat to Texas from Colorado. No issues that aren't common to any after market products. Checked order by phone, those folks were helpful. Like the product and the price. 292534

A high quality product. However, the installation wasn't as fast and easy as the video and other reviews indicated. It took two of us over two hours to do the job. A hoist is advised-we used a roller jack. Once installed, the harness worked perfectly. 147004

The wiring harness turned out great, but when I read the installation instructions, I did not have the required tools to install it myself and had a local service shop install it (cost only $35). His installation was perfect. 132275

Should have watched the video before trying to do this by the written directions. I tried with the written directions and figured it out but went back to the video and acutally did it right. Make sure to watch the video. 23754

The harness went in exactly as expected and works perfectly. The wire lengths were good and the instruction were clear. Some disassembly of the vehicle was necessary, but no permanent modifications were needed. 36205

You guys and girls are fantastic. Great service, nice people with a delivery that far exceeded my expectations. All I can say is WOW. I would gladly refer my friends to eTrailer. 6019
Other than taking quite a bit of time chasing the threads in the frame rails, install with off with a problem. Really liked the wiring harness. Easy plug in again no problem. 64907

Hitch arrived quickly, fit perfectly, install was very simple. Wiring harness was little more involved (due to removal of plastic panels)but directions were well written. 158349
