Tail Light Wiring Kit Installation - 2008 Chevrolet HHR

Today, on our 2008 Chevrolet HHR we're going to be installing the Hopkins tow bar wiring, part number HM56100. To begin our install, we're going to start at the rear of the vehicle. We need to open up the rear hatch and remove the access panels just behind the tail light assemblies. There's one on each side. I'm just going to use a flat blade screw driver, get behind it and pop it free. Behind the access panel, we can see the manufacturer's wiring as it comes into the tail light. Here from the converter box is our yellow wire connector that will ultimately plug in here behind the driver's side tail light assembly.



Tail Light Wiring Kit Installation - 2013 Ford Focus

Today on our 2013 Ford Focus we'll be installing the Hopkins custom taillight wiring kit for towed vehicle, part number HM56008. Now once we have our install complete we can go ahead and test our new baseplate kit. Here we can test the driver side turn signal, the driver side brake, the passenger side turn signal, and the passenger side brake. Once we know those are functioning we can also go ahead and test the taillight circuit and show that our running light circuit works. Now to begin our install we're going to start at the rear of the vehicle, opening up the rear hatch, as we need to access the manufacturer's wiring behind the taillight assembly. My first step is going to be removing the spare tire and rear cargo cover. Next I'm going to remove the rear threshold.


Roadmaster Tail Light Wiring Kit Installation - 2012 Hyundai Accent

Today on this 2012 Hyundai Accent, we're going to show you part number RM-155. This is a Roadmaster Taillight Wiring Kit with bulbs. Now our bulb and socket kit, typically installs in the taillights. In our car here, they're installed at the lower part of the taillight. This is our driver's side, it's going to be the same thing over on our passenger's side. Now you get a length of wire that runs from the back of the car all the way up towards the front as well.


Blue Ox Tail Light Wiring Kit Installation - 2008 Jeep Liberty

Today on this 2008 Jeep Liberty, we're going to install part number BX8869 from Blue Ox. This is the Taillight Wiring Kit for Towing. First thing we're going to do is take our 4-Pole wire and we're going to route it to the back. We're going to start by the front bumper over by the base plate. As we work our way back we'll make sure that we stay away from anything moving like suspension components or anything hot like the exhaust. In this case, we we're able to run it underneath the sub frame and then we hid the wire underneath some appearance panels below the vehicle.


Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass Installation - 2008 Chevrolet HHR

Today on our 20008 Chevrolet HHR we're going to be installing the Roadmaster Fuse Master fuse bypass switch for towed vehicles, part number RM76510. Our switch is currently in the drive mode and we have it hooked up to our tow vehicle. We'll flip it into tow mode, which will disconnect the power going to the fuse port number 8 so it doesn't drain the battery while the vehicle's being towed. Then once you're finished with towing the vehicle and you're ready to drive it again, simply flip the switch back, which again sends power back to the fuse port through the bypass fuse. First we'll go ahead and locate the manufacturer's fuse box panel. The fuse box panel is located on the passenger side on the inside of the console. We'll go ahead and remove the panel by gently pulling out and releasing the fasteners underneath.

Tow Bar Wiring Questions and Answers

  • Will Supplemental Braking System and Tow Bar Wiring from Motorhome Overload Brake Lights on Enclave
  • You may need a brake light relay # RM-88400 to keep the Buick Enclave brake signal from overriding the turn signal sent by your motorhome. The relay is needed on towed cars with combined lighting if you are using a supplemental braking system. Combined lighting means the vehicle has turn signals and brake lights on the same circuit. To determine if a brake light relay is needed to properly wire your vehicle to be towed, answer the following questions. Are you using a supplemental...

  • Tow Bar Wiring Recommendation for a 2015 GMC Canyon
  • You can wire up the tow vehicle so that the taillights function like a combined system (2 wire), which in this case you would want a 4 diode kit. Or you can wire up your vehicle like a separate system where you would use a 6 diode kit. For a 4 diode kit you would want the # RM-154 or for a 6 diode kit you would want the # 154-792-118158. I attached an FAQ on wiring up the vehicle in either configuration for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Setup when Flat Towing a 2015 GMC Canyon with a 2008 Fleetwood Excursion
  • In order to flat tow your 2015 GMC Canyon, I recommend checking your owners manual for any flat towing restrictions or procedures. With that said, you will need 5 components to complete your flat towing setup - base plates, tow bar, safety cables, tow bar wiring and a supplemental braking system. Since you are needing tail light wiring, I would go with the Tow Ready tail light isolating diode system with 4-pole connector # TR118821. To complete your flat towing setup you will also...

  • Is Brake Light Relay Required to Tow 2000 Jeep Wrangler Using Even Brake and Bulb and Socket Kit
  • According to Roadmaster the 2000 Jeep Wrangler does not require the use of the brake light relay that is included with the Even Brake, # RM-9400, when flat towing the vehicle. Also, the bulb and socket kit # RM-155 bypasses the vehicle wiring so that combined with the information from Roadmaster is a double whammy that you will not have to use the brake light relay.

  • Brake Light Relay to Prevent Motorhome Turn Signals Being Overridden By Brake Lamp on Towed Vehicle
  • You'll need to install a Roadmaster Brake Light Relay, part # RM-88400. The purpose of a brake light relay kit is to prevent your towed car's brake signal from overriding the turn signal that comes from your RV. When your towed vehicle is properly wired and connected to your RV, its indicator lights will illuminate as you engage the turn signals in your RV. However, if you have only a four-diode system in place, the turn signal will be overridden by your towed car's brake signal as soon...

  • Ignition Key Position When Flat Towing a 2012 Chevy Equinox
  • When the key is in the off position, the 2012 Chevy Equinox owners manual states it will lock the steering wheel, ignition and the automatic transmission. Based on that, I would think having the ignition key in the accessory position when flat towing is correct. I wouldn't go against what the owners manual states. I don't think you want to take a chance just in case the steering locked which may cause damage to the front tires or even the steering system. I included a helpful article...

In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. The most popular compatible tow bar is the Blue Ox Aventa LX Tow Bar # BX7445. This comes with coiled safety cables. The coiled design helps keep the cables...

  • Can Battery on 2015 GMC Terrain be charged While Flat Towing it Behind a Motor Home
  • Check the owners manual for the vehicle you intend to flat tow because you may or may not have to disconnect the battery to flat tow it. If you do not then it is possible that there is some feature that could drain the battery while in tow. And of course if you do have to disconnect the battery it would not drain. To provide a maintenance charge to the vehicle while in tow you would have to add # RM-765 which will provide a maintenance charge to keep the battery at the charge level it...

  • Tow Bar Lighting Recommendation for a 2007 Honda Accord
  • I wish we had tow bar wiring that was plug and play for your 2007 Honda Accord, but the best option I can make for your vehicle that won't require any splicing would be a magnetic kit like the part # MT70097, or your other option would be a diode kit that would require quite a bit of splicing like the part # 154-792-118158. I attached a couple help articles on tow bar lighting for you to check out as well.

  • Availability of 8 Foot Flat Towing Umbilical with 7-Way on One End and 4-Pole Flat on the Other
  • There's not an available 7-way to 4-pole flat umbilical like what you're looking for, but I do have some easy solutions for you. The Hopkins Nite-Glow 7-way to 5-way flat coiled adapter, part # HM47025 will work with either a 4-pole or a 5-pole trailer connector. It would plug right into the connector at the front of the towed vehicle provided by the Hopkins Towed Vehicle Wiring Harness you referenced, part # HM56302. If the unused socket bothered you, you could cover it with a small...

  • Do Fuses Need To Be Pulled To Flat Tow a 2011 Ford Flex Behind a Motor Home
  • Thanks for your recent order! The Roadmaster fuse bypass # RM76511 is great because all you need to do is flip a switch to activate or deactivate the fuse. It's not a requirement though and based on my research, your owners manual doesn't say anything about pulling fuses to flat tow your 2011 Ford Flex. I also checked with Roadmaster and fuses don't need to be pulled. It's still a good idea you check your owners manual just in case. I included a helpful article and installation...

  • TrailerMate 781118 Backfeeding Troubleshooting for a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • I spoke to my contact at Trailermate and he informed me that there are diodes in the TrailerMate Harness part # TM781117 that prevent the RV from back feeding onto the tow vehicle wiring, but there aren't diodes in the kit to prevent the opposite direction of backfeeding. I know this isn't exactly the solution you are looking for, but he recommended you install diodes into the wiring at the 4-way like part # RM-790.
