Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2007 Honda Ridgeline

Today on this 2007 Honda Ridgeline we're going to install part number 118400 from Curt. First step is to go ahead and lower the tailgate and remove the two screws that attach the tail lights to the vehicle on the drivers side. We'll go ahead and remove the tail lights and then disconnect the wiring harness. Now there's two little tabs. There's one tab that connects the wire harness to the body, you have to push that away to release it and one the second tab we push down and that will allow u s to pull the connector apart. We'll go ahead and repeat the same process over on the passenger side.

Honda Ridgeline Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring Questions and Answers


  • Parts Needed to Install a 7-Way and Brake Controller on a 2014 Honda Ridgeline
  • First, consumers of aftermarket products are protected by the Federal Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act. The Act states that if something breaks on your vehicle and you take it in for warranty repair, the dealer must honor your warranty unless whatever modifications you have added to your vehicle actually caused the probĀ­lem in question. With that said there are currently no 7-Way harnesses that you can just plug into the 2014 Honda Ridgeline. It is possible that options for the 2013 will...

  • Troubleshooting 4-Pole Wiring on Re-Wired Boat Trailer
  • The best first step is to isolate the problem to either the tow vehicle's wiring or the trailer's. Disconnect the boat trailer's 4-pole. Use your vehicle battery (or a spare battery) to directly test the trailer lighting on its own by connecting the 4-pole ground pin to the battery negative terminal and one by one connecting the battery hot terminal to each of the other pins on the trailer's 4-pole. If the trailer lights behave properly when connected in this manner then you know the...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness for 2007 Honda Ridgeline that Will Work with LED Trailer Lighting
  • The Curt Trailer Wiring Harness that you referenced, part # C56175, is not recommended for use with vehicles that have LED lights (but is compatible with trailers that have LEDs). This harness requires you to cut and splice wiring to install it. I can offer you an easier solution that will not require any cutting of wires. TowReady T-One 4-Pole Trailer Wiring Harness # 118400 is a plug-and-play harness that simply plugs inline to your tail light assemblies without the need to cut or...

  • Trailer Wiring Recommendation for a 2008 Honda Ridgeline for a 4 and 7-way and Brake Controller
  • Yes, you will need a couple different wiring kits, but there is a way for you get both a 4 and 7-way on your 2008 Honda Ridgeline and have them both be fully functional so that you can install a brake controller. First, you will need the Curt Wiring Harness part # C55585 that you referenced to install a 4-way on your vehicle.

  • Troubleshooting Bizzare Trailer Light Blinking
  • To me it sounds like there was a short on your trailer which caused the Tow Ready Wiring Harness # 118400 that you referenced to short out as well. Bizarre trailer light behavior is usually caused by a shorted out converter box or bad tail light grounds. I would check the condition of the grounds of the tail lights first. Some assemblies ground through the mounting hardware, if that is what you have then you should check to make sure the assemblies are attached to a clean, metal surface. Since...

  • Installing a 7-Way Trailer Connector and Brake Controller on a 2008 Honda Ridgeline
  • That towing package might include other things like an alternate transmission cooler or other items including the wiring. That could explain why they say its for more heavy duty towing. To see if the brake output function reaches from under the dash to the connector at the rear one thing you can try is to run 12 volt power on the circuit in either direction. Then test the other end with a meter or test like such as # 3808. If it is connected all the way back then that is one less hardwiring...

  • 7-Way to 4- or 5-Way Adapter for 2013 Honda Ridgeline w/Factory 7-Way and PWC Trailer w/4 or 5-Way
  • Yes, there are adapters to go from the 7-Way on your 2013 Honda Ridgeline to a 4- or 5-Way trailer connector on your trailer. A popular adapter for this situation is # 37385. It plugs into the 7-Way on the vehicle and has separate 4 and 5-Way ends on the other side for the trailer.

  • Left Turn Signal and Brake Lights Do Not Work On Trailer or 4-Way on 2006 Honda Ridgeline
  • You have done all of the correct testing and it does indicate that the converter in harness # 118400 has gone bad and needs to be replaced. There could be any number of reasons for a converter to go bad. It could be a short on the trailer that blew the box, protecting the vehicle wiring like it was designed. Check the trailer to make sure the grounds are all attached to clean bare metal surfaces. Also make sure that the trailer and vehicle side connectors are free of dirt and corrosion....

  • Where Should the Converter Box be Mounted on a 2006 Honda Ridgeline for Wiring Harness # 118400
  • The instructions for wiring harness # 118400, see link, do not specify it but if there is room behind the driver side tail light assembly, or a little lower, the converter box will go there. Make sure the area where it will attach to is clean so the double-sided tape will stick.

  • Troubleshooting Turn Signal Issue with Wiring Harness 118400 on a 2007 Honda Ridgeline
  • I would check a few things first, before replacing the unit. First, you should check the ground wire at the screw you should have installed and make sure that it is firmly connected to a clean piece of metal, i.e. a location without paint, rust, or buildup. I also recommend checking the ground wires on your trailer, including the ground on the trailer connector, and any trailer lights. If your trailer lights are grounded through the mounting hardware, make sure that no rust or buildup...
