Today on this 2003 Chevrolet Impala we are going to be installing hard wiring kit 18252. The first thing we need to do is remove the driver side tail light. We are going to undo the tie down screw. Fold back the carpeting in the trunk and as you can see there is three more tail light screws that we are going to be removing and that will pop loose our tail light. Now that our tail light is removed we are going to unplug it and set it out of the way. As you can see these are the wires that we are going to be tapping into. Before we tap into our wires, take the 4-pole and run it down through the bumper and out the bottom. We are going to test our wires to see what function they are going to be. 00:45
First we are going to start off by using the left blinker which is going to be our yellow wire for our blinker and brake signal. We are going to check for the running lights. Our running lights are going to be the brown wire. We are going to take our ground wire and pull it back and run it through as well. We are going to be attaching that to the other side of the vehicle. What it looks like we are going to be doing is just color matching our wires to our plug in. We are going to be taking our yellow wire and quick spliceing it to our yellow wire on our harness. We are going to do the brown wire the same way. We are just going to tape this up to keep it from getting wet. Now once it is all taped up we are complete on the driver side of the vehicle so we are going to take our tail light assembly and put it back in position and thread our hardware on. 01:28
Now we are going to go over to the passenger side and remove the tail light the same way. As you can see we are underneath the vehicle. We are going to run our wires. We are just going to go over the bumper support. We are going to continue to run our wires up and over and then run our green wire over the passenger side bumper support because we are going to be tying that into our passenger side tail light. While we are underneath there we are going to get everything situated underneath there and attach our ground to the other side of the frame and into the sheet metal. We are going to take a ring terminal that you can get at any hardware store and we are going to put it on our ground. Then we will take our wires and clean them up a bit and tape them up, get them out of the way and then we will go up on top and finish installing our green wire to our tail light. As you can see we found our right turn signal which is going to be the green wire. We are going to tap our green wire in our harness into the green wire over here. I am just going to tape off the green wire. Then we are going to plug our tail light assembly back in and if you want to test your wires you can just use the light tester and plug it into the end of the 4-pole and run your functions. This is going to complete the installation for 18252 hardwire kit on this 2003 Chevrolet Impala.
Today, on a 2005 Chevrolet Impala, we are going to install part number 118512 to be tow ready. The first thing we need to do is go ahead and open up the trunk and get access to the wiring harness. We will have to remove the interior panels and the threshold to get to it. First off, we are going to go ahead and remove the plastic rivets from our cover right here. Next, we are going to remove these 2 fasteners here and here. Now, we are going to remove this fastener right here and this fastener here and then we can go ahead and remove the taillight.
Today on our 2012 Chevy Impala we're going to install tow ready T1 Connector part number 118417. First we are going to need to access the rear cargo area. Then our first step will be removing the rear threshold. There are a couple of fasteners that will need to be removed first. Now we are going to get our trim tool or a flat headed screw driver to get underneath the threshold and just pry it up. There's several plastic fasteners underneath threshold still holding it in place.
Today on this 2002 Chevrolet Impala we are going to install part number 118002 from Tow Ready. This wiring harness is pretty easy to install because everything is going to be available to hook into on passenger side of the vehicle behind the carpet here. I have theses fasteners here just to make it a little easier to get the carpet down. All right and with this wiring harness right here we will go ahead and test each individual wire to find out its function and we will go ahead and make the appropriate connection.
Today we are going to be installing a 4-pole, part number 118002, on a 2004 Chevrolet Impala. OK, we are inside the trunk area, and we want to go ahead and access the wires that we are going to be tapping into for our wiring harness. Those wires are actually located directly behind the tail light assemblies on both sides of the vehicle. In order to gain access to those wires, we are going to need to go inside the trunk area and we will first off need to remove these three screws per side and then pull back our carpeting. And you can actually see there are two more set screws that we are going to need to remove as well. And with all the set screws removed, I can go ahead and pull the tail light assembly off. As you can see, here is our main wiring harness, feeding the drivers side tail light assembly here. We have got three wires here. We have got a brown with white, which is going to be the running light lead that we are going to be tapping into the yellow, which is our left turn and left brake signal and then the black, which is the standard ground. And then what we want to do is to take our yellow wire here off of our wiring harness, and we want to go ahead and we are going to attach it directly to the yellow wire on our tail light assembly.
Today we are going to install part number 118417 from Tow Ready. We are going to install this on a 2007 Chevrolet Impala. To install the T-1 connector, we have to get back behind the tail light assembly here and behind this plastic. We are also going to be taking off the passengers side tail light, too. And this whole panel will just pop up straight vertical. And we are going to take off this other wing nut right here. Now that we have got our tail light loose, we are going to just temporarily disconnect it from the wiring harness. And then this actual plug right here is where our T-1 connector is going to hook up to the vehicle. We will reconnect the T-1 connector back in, and just tuck that back between the bumper fascia and the body. And we are also going to take our 4-pole wire, and we are going to route that straight down, because that is going to come out by the hitch itself. Make sure to leave that ground wire, because we are going to attach it to the sheet metal below the tail light. And we will just clip our original wire harness back on.
