T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector - Saturn Vue, 2007

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.

Features:

  • Provides a 4-way flat trailer connector at the back of your Saturn Vue 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
  • Includes circuit-protected tail light converter to ensure that your Saturn Vue's wiring matches that of your trailer
    • Provides protection against electrical shorts and overloads
  • Constructed of 16-gauge bonded wire
  • Comes with dust cap for 4-way flat connector


Specs:

  • Maximum amperage:
    • Stop/turn lights: 2.1 amps per circuit
    • Tail lights: 4.2 amps per circuit
  • 1-Year limited warranty


Installation

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.


T-One Connection Location Points Behind Tail Lights

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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2006 Saturn Vue

Today we are going to install part number 118418 from Tow Ready on our 2006 Saturn Vue. The general layout of this wire harness is that the connections are behind the tail lights, route the wires underneath the vehicle, and the wires will be stored outside the vehicle when we are done. To start off, we will take off the tail lights we will lift the hatch to get to those. All right, and here is our connection point right here. So let us pull this latch out and pull it apart. And repeat for the passengers side. All right, next we need to loosen this section of quarter-panel here to give us some room to run our connectors and put our black box for the T-harness hidden back up inside of here. What we are going to do is take out this nut here and this nut here, and that will give us enough wiggle room to pull the panel off just a little bit.

The next thing we are going to do is go ahead and route our red and green wire to the passengers side. But the exhaust is really close to this area, so what we are going to is start off by putting a zip-tie in this hole in the body work here, and we are just going to use that to help keep everything out of the way. And then next we can run this across: We have to take these little rivets apart for the bumper fascia support, and we actually put it up between the bumper fascia and the supports going all the way across. For now, we will go ahead and secure these wires. Now we do the same thing again for our 4-pole wire harness. We will go ahead and zip-tie it to the rest of our bundle here and hide it behind the bumper. We put these together, and that will clamp everything in place and stay out of the way. We are going to go ahead and take our connector and just put it back up in here, like we did on the drivers side, and just pull it out the top. We will make our connections again. And then now we will take our excess wire and just bundle it and zip-tie it to the existing harness. Now we will go ahead and install our bracket, part number 118144. Take our 4-pole and just pull it through the bracket it is a friction fit. And we are set. And that covers it for part number 118418.

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'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 product55958

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

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

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

  • Will the T-one Vehicle Harness Part #118418 Fit the 2003 Saturn Vue Redline
  • No, I am sorry you will have to hardwire your 2003 Saturn Vue Redline to have trailer lighting available at the rear of the vehicle. If you need a 4-way flat connector you could use the Upgraded Circuit Protected Modulite with 4 Pole Harness and Hardwire Kit, part # 119179KIT, which will include all wiring and connectors to complete the wiring along with instructions.

  • Troubleshooting # 118418 T-One Vehicle Harness Installed on Saturn Vue
  • Whenever trailer lights exhibit strange behavior, its typically a result of a poor ground connection. It sounds like you have done a wonderful job of troubleshooting up to this point. The only thing it appears you have not checked is the grounding point on the vehicle side of the equation, where you have the ground wire for the converter attached. Another quick method of troubleshooting is trying the trailer on a different vehicle or the vehicle with a different trailer (if possible). This wi

  • Short Circuit on Trailer Caused Trailer Wiring Harness on 2008 Saturn Vue to Blow
  • What probably happened was that the converter box has blown. This means that it has done its job. The short on the trailer blew the box instead of damaging the vehicle wiring. There is no fix for this and the wiring harness on the vehicle will have to be replaced. You will need to make sure that the short circuit has been fixed prior to installing and using the new harness. Otherwise the same problem will keep happening until the short is fixed.
