Today we are going to install part number 119175, the protected tail light converter, and we are going to install this on a 2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport. We are going to tap in behind the tail lights. I am going to take this off, and then we are going to run a wire on the outside here, underneath the bumper cover. And this is where the converter box will hide, underneath here. All right, the next thing we are going to do is pull this bumper cover away from it. We are just going to use a simple brake tool and just work our way behind it, just enough where you can run a fish wire through there and out the bottom.
What we will do is attach our wire to the wires on our converter. We will go ahead and start testing the wires, for which wire does what function. Since we have got the light off, we can take advantage of that and test here, instead of making a bunch of holes in the wire itself. And let us go ahead and just test around until we find our running light circuit that is what we are going to start off with. OK, that looks like it is going to be this wire here, which is going to be a green wire with a white stripe. We are going to put on our quick splice, and we will go ahead and hook up our brown wire for our running light circuit. We will do the same thing again for our left-turn circuit. All right, that looks like a green wire with a blue stripe. We will go ahead and stagger our connections going up there to make it a little more sleeker. And we will check our connection here. OK, and we will just cut off our excess. All right, and our next wire is going to be our brake signal, so we will have to have a helper push the brake pedal and we will test that: on, off. And that looks like that is a green wire with the silver dashes on it. OK, next we will go ahead and install our ground screw. We will go ahead and run some electric tape around the connections to give it a little bit of extra protection.
All right, what we are going to do is go ahead and take the module here and go ahead and attach it to the sheet metal right here. And next we will go ahead and run our green wire over to the passengers side. And depending on how you run it, you may have to add a little length to it. All right, just a quick measurement - and it looks like we are going to come up short, so we will go ahead and just add a small length of wire to this. All right, we will go ahead and just attach our pull wire, our green wire here - just pull it on through. All right, we will do the same thing on the passengers side. We will just pull this back a little bit and run our fish wire through. All right, we will go ahead and test our wire again - same thing as we did before. And let us go probe for our right-turn signal. And that looks like a green wire with a yellow stripe. OK, and we will go ahead and make our connection there.
All right, from the bottom of the vehicle, we will reach up and pull out our wire harness, and then we will take this, and it will get mounted up right here on the bottom of the hitch. We will use a couple of brackets to achieve that. And that covers it for our install of part number 119175 on our 2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport.
Today on this 2000 Mitsubishi Montero sport were going to install part number 119175KIT. First thing we need to do is open the back hatch and remove the two tail lights. Now Ill need to remove some interior components so we can get access to the wiring harness. Well remove the tray at the bottom and then the threshold. Then well remove the track thats located on the drivers. Then we can pull the panel back a little bit to give us some more working room.
Today we are going to install part number 119175 from Tow Ready, and this is their Circuit Protected Converter Wire Harness. And we are going to install this on a 2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport. To install this wire harness, we are going to have to get behind both sets of tail lights on this vehicle. We are going to take off the tail lights, get to the wiring behind them, and then we will make our hard-wire connections to the circuits themselves. We will just go ahead and take the lights off loose. The reason why we are taking the lights off is so we can find the function of each wire inside here, rather than just poking a bunch of different holes in the wire. So it saves a little bit of wear and tear on the wire. Next we will take some bolts out and loosen up the fascia so we can run our wires from below up through here, along the edge of the body work and into the tail light.
