Today on our 2012 GMC Sierra Denali, were going to install the Bargman seven pole harness, part number 51-97-410. The first step of our installation is to locate a suitable spot for our seven pole connector. Here in the bed of the truck, is an excellent location, as behind it we have enough clearance before we meet the outside of the fender. Next well need to drill a two inch hole to feed our wire through.Now with our hole made, we can go ahead and take the new seven pole harness and carefully feed it through the hole. You want to be very careful because the edges that we just created by drilling the hole will be very sharp. Now weve got our seven pole into position, we can go ahead and use the cell tapping screws provided with our install kit to secure it.Now underneath the vehicle well go ahead and start routing our wire over to the back of the bumper.
When routing your wire you need to be careful of moving components such as steering or suspension or excessive heat such as exhaust. Using some black electrical tape, Im just going to go ahead and wrap it around any of the wires that are not covered by the manufacturers protective covering. This will give it some added security from being damaged and also help keep out any dirt, moisture and debris adding to the longevity of our wire.Now to make a connection with the manufacturers wiring, well need to go ahead and disconnect it from the back of the seven pole at the bumper. See here on the upper side theres a lock that well need to pull back on before we can disconnect it. Now with the wire disconnected, we can go ahead and plug in line with the manufacturers wiring, matching up the connectors.
As we do well also re-secure the lock.Next what well do is go ahead and roll up the excess wire and secure it with some black zip ties. Now with all of our wires secured, well go ahead and take a pair of side cutters, just clip off the excess from our zip ties to clean up our install look. And thatll complete the installation of the Bardman seven pole harness part number 51-97-410 on our 2012 GMC Sierra Denali.
Today on this 2012 GMC Sierra, we're going to install part number PK11916. First thing we need to do is go ahead and remove the cap that is on bumper of our truck. We'll push down a small tab and rotate it and it will come through. Then the back side of the cap is a factory towing package and its wire harness. We're going to pull them out a little bit and we'll release the cap from the harness. There's a small white lock that we have to remove then we'll push down at the center of the latch so we can pull the cap off the wire harness.
Today we are working on a 2010 GMC Sierra. We are going to install a 7 pole connector by Pollack, part number pk11916. Our first step is to get underneath the vehicle here and locate the current manufacturers harness. On the top side of this, you will notice a bump out in the round connector, theres a lock on the back side of that connector, you will need to press and disconnect. Now I am going to go ahead and let the vehicle down and take a look at the outside part of the current connector. This piece is just a knock out, its where our new connector is going to mount its not an actual connector at this time.
Today on this 2009 GMC Sierra, we are going to be installing the Pollak 7-Pole Twist-In Style Connecter. Okay, we are here at the rear bumper of our Sierra, and if you look here, mounted is a dummy plug for our connector. We are going to twist this out and plug our new connector right in line to it. So to remove our knockout plug, if you go to the outside outboard side of it here, you can see that there is a little tab there. We press that in. We just want to go ahead and rotate the plug, and pull it right out of there. Attached on the back side is the connector for our tow package. If you look right on top here, there is a little release tab. Press that in, and go ahead and separate the two pieces. 0:44
Today on this 2009 GMC Sierra 1500 series we are going to be installing the twist-in 7-pole connector part number PK11916. We are at the rear of the vehicle and we are just left of the license plate. Newer Silverados and Sierras have the built in hole for the 7-pole connector right in the bumper. What we have in place right now is a dummy plug so we are going to remove that and plug our connector in line. What we need to do to remove the dummy plug is if you look on the outboard side there is a little tab. Take a flat head screwdriver and press that in and take and turn the dummy plug counter clockwise and then pull it right out. 00:39
Today we are going to install a 4-pole and 7-pole connector by Hoppy, part number 30955, on a 2006 GMC Sierra. This wiring connector that we are installing goes right into the factory connector. So I would start with lowering the spare tire for good visibility. You are going to want to take the existing wiring down so you can use this excess slack to run it to the bumper so you can mount the connector. Once you get the wiring harness taken down and the cap pulled off, then you are going to need to mount your mounting bracket to the bumper. Once you find a good location, mount the bracket with the self-tapping screws.
