Video Transcript for Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring 118267 Review

Today we're going to review part number 118267. This is the Tow Ready Nissan replacement OEM tow package wiring harness. This is a custom fit part number, it is designed to fit the 2005-2012 Nissan Frontier with the factory 7-way, 2005-2013 Nissan Extera with the factory 7-way, 2005-2012 Nissan Pathfinder with the factory tow package and also the 2009-2012 Suzuki Equator with the factory 7-way. This part number will include everything shown here on the table, the actual plug-in harness, the 7-way plug for the rear of the vehicle and some zip ties to take up any of the excess wire. This is an exact replacement for a damaged OEM wiring harness. It will install in seconds just by plugging in. It will also upgrade vehicles that have a 4-way OEM plug to the 7-way connector.

It will also connect directly to the standard OEM connector. Basically when you install this these plugs right here will 'T' into the factory OEM connector, it's usually located on these vehicles underneath the vehicle by the driver's side rear tire. Once you plug these in then you'll just run this larger plug to the very back and this would attach to the 7-way, snaps right in, and then your 7-way would be attached to the bumper of the rear of the vehicle, then it's ready for use. One other note just to mention on some of the Nissan products we have found out that some of them come with the OEM towing relay and some do not so you do want to check your fuse box to make sure you do have the relay available. If not you would have to order that separately, we do carry that on our website. That should do it for the review of part number 118267, the Tow Ready Nissan replacement OEM tow package wiring harness. .

The employees are fantastic and the product quality appears to be good as well. My problem is that this item #118267 says it's a guaranteed fit for my 2009 Nissan Pathfinder w/ factory 4-flat. Even the expert (Jeffrey L) said verbatim that "since you have the factory 4-way connector on your 2009 Pathfinder, you can use a 7-way connector like part #118267". However, this part number is NOT plug and play and is not compatible with the 2009 Pathfinder with factory 4-flat. Once I got the package in the mail it says RIGHT ON THE PACKAGE "2008-2012 Nissan Pathfinder ALL (except w/ factory 4-flat connector". So the expert is incorrect and the website is as well. This item WILL NOT fit a 2009 Nissan Pathfinder w/ 4-flat connector. Not to mention, I paid for overnight shipping and really needed this item. It did arrive in less than 24 hours which was outstanding. Overall I am impressed with etrailer and I will order again, but this particular information and item # needs to be corrected.


Comments
I apologize that that happened, I am removing that incorrect answer. Customer Service will reach out to you.

Fit on the bumper, easy install, looks nice. I installed this on my 2013 frontier, inset into the bumper, I drilled the hole and mounted it with some rivet-nuts. Only 1 problem, the black(+12v) and blue(brakes) wires were swapped on the plug for the truck. I was able to disassemble the connection and put the wires in the correct place. Other than that everything fits good, use plenty of silicone grease to keep connections from corroding.


Comments
update: a year later, still works perfectly, connection is good and secure and is dependable.

Very easy to install! I have a 2007 Frontier Nismo off road. The reason I had to replace the harness was due to Nissan hanging the plug under the bumper. I took someone else's idea and used a 2" hole saw and mounted the new plug next to the license plate. Very simple and looks great! I've read some complaints about the blue and black wires being in each other's spot... fortunately this won't affect me unless I upgrade.

This item is an excellent replacement for the OEM harness for the 2013 Nissan Frontier. I replaced my harness on an Crew Cab SV Frontier. There are a couple of items to note: 1) If you are using the original mount for the harness that is already welded to the hitch, you will need to obtain another nut and bolt (or three if you want them to all look the same. I purchased three M6 x 20 Flange bolts with flange nuts). 2) You will also need to drill an additional hole at the top center of the mount and just above the right hole already drilled. As you can see in my pictures, the original mount is a cutout instead of a round hole. I have also included a picture of my before and after of the products. 3) When you push the female portion of the harness on to the mounted plug, you will have to push very hard or squeeze them very hard together until you get a click. I'm presuming everything hooked up excellently as I haven't used a meter to check the connections. The truck started up fine and using brakes and reverse didn't didn't blow any fuses. My order was shipped quickly even with a weekend order which was surprising. Package was delivered without any physical damages to the box. I rated this just shy of Excellent as I had to do some drilling and purchasing of screws to mount the replacement.



- 118267

Works excellent for my 2012 Nissan Frontier. Near as I can tell, Nissan ran the wiring for 7 pin connectors on all Pathfinders, Xterras and Frontiers as long as you have the 4.0L motor (did this exact same part a few years back on my 2009 Xterra). What this gives you is a LOT of flexibility that a lot of other small trucks don't have. You can run powered brakes, install a cigarette lighter into the connector (really, etrailer even sells it!) and provide power to an RV trailer while towing (minimal, but it does charge the batteries. I used this as an opportunity to pull out the poorly installed aftermarket 4 pin connector that was installed with my (admittedly a good choice) Draw Tite 2" receiver hitch (was on the truck when I bought it). I drilled a hole next to the license plate with a hole saw, sealed it up with factory touch up paint and clearcoat to prevent rust, then popped the 7 pin connector in. This is how the new Dodge Ram has it, and it looks much nicer.

The website was easy to use. The videos were helpful and let me know I was ordering the correct wire harness. Other websites show the wire harness as a 4 pin, which will only allow some of the lights to work. Also the pictures of the staff on the Web are a great touch and let me know I was not orderin from a faceless organization. The only downside is that I had a difficult time finding the bracket that would fit by vehicle ( xterra). So I picked brackets, I thought would fit, but the hitch has a lot of bends. When I got the bracket it didn't match the 7 pin connector. Only one bolt fit...I might have ordered the wrong one. Also it was hard to find a good place to mount the bracket. It might be much to ask but if the bracket was sold as a kit for new installation it might help. Though my order shipped quick and arrived quick so very pleased and will shop here again.

by:

I have placed several orders with etrailer.com and all the orders came to me as anticipated. Good customer service because their representatives know what they are talking about; they helped me match up my trailer electrical wiring components so that they work together and fit on my existing mounting holes. I will definitely order from etrailer.com the next time I need trailer stuff. They also had really reasonably priced cabin micro filters for my vehicle. Better to order all your stuff at one time if you can to get lower shipping cost, duh.

Ive had this harness on my Nissan for a year now and it works as good as the first day. No problems whatsoever. A good product all around.

New harness installed easily. Quick trip to the hardware store for bolts to mount the 7 pin mount to the bracket under the bumper. No problems.

The Good: -Easy to install -Looks good when using mounting bracket. Nice clean look. -More convenient than the 4-way flat I had been using. I had to replace those yearly as they don't hold up to the weather and lots of use. The Bad: -There is a know issue with the blue/grey wires. Hooked this up to my camper that uses trailer brakes. Tow vehicle is a 2010 Nissan Xterra. The brakes were locked up and powered "On". From other reviews this has been seen before. There is even a video on how to "fix" this. Overall I do like this. I almost always tow a smaller 2-place trailer with a 4-way flat connection so I use adaptor. Could be issues if I ever need to tow a larger trailer with brakes.


Comments
The issue is that some Nissan trucks and SUVs have the 12-v and the brake output feed in the tow package wiring harness wired backwards. This is a fairly small percentage of the overall vehicles, but its significant enough that were definitely aware of it.

I go off road a lot in the SW desert and have lost a few hitch connections going through washes. I used to have to get these OEM from a dealer but my last replacement I found the same connector components available at etrailer for much less that what the dealer charged, so decided to give this vendor a try. The quality, in my opinion, was better than dealer OEM. I installed the connector easier than the OEM piece and so far it has connected up to a variety of rental trailers the first time and every time. This is lots better than my previous experiences using factory OEM connectors. Why I do not know but better quality at less cost makes me a steady and dedicated customer of etrailer.com parts.


Comments
Just like I said a year ago-works great. I have a 7 point hitch and if the trailer has an electric brake that works great also. The good thing for me is I am getting old & slowing down so have not torn off this one yet but have a pig hunt in a week so we will see! When I need another it will sure be another one of these

When I received the part the brake controller wire and 12 volt power wires were reversed. As the unit is a plug and play adapter it took a significant amount of time to determine what was wrong. Originally when I plugged my trailer into the installled 7 pin adapter my brakes locked soild and I was not getting 12 volt power tommy trailer. After a lot of work using a test light I had to read-wire the harness to make it work. Troubleshooting the problem took several hours.



- 118267
by:

I bought the harness and used it for a while but there seems to be a loose wire or two as the trailer brakes won't engage when plugged in. I ended up buying a factory harness instead

It sounds like you have the same problem that others have experienced with their vehicles, Benny. For a resolution to this issue, please see this helpful article:

Overall great product and solves my problem of needing a 7 pole tow harness. Install was painless as the two pin connectors fit directly into the '13 Nissan Frontier OEM connectors if you have the tow package. My only complaint is that the trailer receptacle is not plug and play to my Frontier. The holes do not line up and the wiring harness required me to bend the metal plate under the truck. Not a huge deal, but I bought it thinking it was a direct fit to my truck.



- 118267
by:

Fits perfect in my 17 frontier but the black and blue pin were crossed, i had to fix it myself, nothing big but if you're not good with your hands...also didn't come with screws to mount on bracket , so i use zip ties for now ,anyway i'll buy from this guys again.


Comments
The factory tow package connector on a few of the Nissan Xterras, Frontiers and Pathfinders from 2005 to 2017 had the 12 volt power and the electric brake wire switched. This isnt a consistent problem that occurs on every vehicle, nor is it isolated to a given model year.

Simple and easy to install



- 118267
by:

Received wiring harness. Haven't installed it yet, but since it is a direct plug in replacement it shouldn't be a problem. I have had trailer 7 blade connections for many years. Where they wear out is the connection end. Salt, grit, and water take their toll. This design appears to address this as the 7 blade connector has a tightly sealed connector and the end connector itself can be replaced rather than the whole harness! So, I won't have to replace the whole harness when it wears out. I live in upstate NY so harsh weather and salt in the winter is a given.

I had a company install me a trailer light and hitch package, guess what lights didn’t work and company went it of business. I got a wire harness from this company and it took longer to remove old stuff than to install this new harness. I recommend calling this place first to get your products, better than any other stores and easier. Thanks etrailer



- 118267
by:

Great plug and play unit. Drilled a hole next to my plate for a clean install. One thing to note, and this is by no means the products fault, some Frontiers had their power and brake wires switched on the factory harness. Be sure to test with a light or multi meter. Mine was switched. Nice thing about this harness as it was easy to switch on this opposed to the factory wiring. Overall a great product and I would purchase again.



- 118267
by:

Could be a one off fault on the product: the AUX 12V feed and the trailer brake feed were swapped over which caused issues with the brake controller. I worked it out by testing directly to yeh vehicle plug and working back to the coupler plug



- 118267
by:

It works. Had to switch the wiring in the plug as several other reviews stated. After this it has worked great.


Comments
For some unknown reason, this is a fairly common occurrence with Nissan trucks and SUVs. A small percentage of them were manufactured with the wiring harness functions reversed.

I'm using it on my 2015 Nissan Frontier SV with factory tow package. All the plugs fit perfect the only thing that didn't fit was the trailer connector end whose holes didn't line up with the factory brackets holes. This was easily fixed by filling the lower holes and drilling new holes. Other then that this item is perfect. Do not hesitate to order it you will be happy



- 118267
by:

Its a nice fit. Right amount of wire without excess hanging around. Didn't come with a mounting bracket which would have been nice since the mounting holes on the plug don't line up to the Reese bracket I already had. Biggest problem I ran into was that the blue brake wire and black 12V supply wire were reversed in the plug. Really frustrated to find the terminals couldn't be removed from the plug body and their positions switched. Ended up cutting into a brand new harness.


Comments
Same exact thing happened to me...I was disappointed. It took me quite some time to figure it out...I wasnt sure if it was the trailer, the brake controller, or what
-- comment by: Brad G - 09/02/2014

This is a known problem this wiring harness on the vehicle side connection point of the plug. Due to the inconsistencies of which specific vehicles this wiring effects, we have not been able to formulate a solution other that exactly what you did. At this time re-wiring the connector is the best option.

-- Etrailer Expert Rachael H - 9/4/2014

Same issue, the charge and brake were reversed on the wiring harness. We ended up switching them in order to work with the 2008 Nissan Pathfinder.

by:

Everything connected as the instructions showed. Easy and fast. There weren't enough screws provided for attaching the unit to the truck, and they were low quality. I recommend buying separate screws that won't rust.

Easy installation....plug in and go haven't had a trailer hooked up yet. I am in the process of buying one. needed a trailer brake controller before taking one home


Comments
on my 2007 Nissan Frontier the 2 pole black and blue were reversed. Removed the terminals and re-installed them. Thanks e-trailer for the tip and great customer service. I see another post a 2008 Pathfinder had the same issue Pathfinder, Frontier, Xterra are basicly the same car So the question is........ is it the car harness or the aftermarket 7 pole harness wires reversed?
-- comment by: Chris - 09/17/2013

We are working on this and will have more complete information soon. We are working to source some vehicles for testing so we can be sure the information is accurate.

Installation was a snap with the existing factory tow package wiring harness. I fabricated a mounting bracket for the 7-way plug-in and bolted it to the existing bumper next to the hitch. I also installed a 4 way trailer hookup for non-brake trailers. Looks neat, clean and professional. Total time to mount 7-way was less than 15 minutes after fabricating the mounting bracket.

  • Troubleshooting Brake Controller Installation on 2013 Nissan Xterra
    Thank you for all the details on your Xterra's wiring and brake controller behavior. The first and easiest troubleshooting step you can take at this point is to unplug the Primus IQ brake controller # TK90160 so it powers down and leave it disconnected for 15 minutes. Then reconnect it and without connecting the trailer see what the display indicates. If you again see the SH short circuit code then you'll want to check all of the Xterra wiring from the actual socket contacts to your...

  • Brake Controller and 7-Way Recommendation for 2009 Nissan Pathfinder
    To install a 7-way on your 2009 Nissan Pathfinder you'd need to start with the part # 118281 which is a confirmed fit. Then to install a brake controller you'd be able to use a plug and play style adapter like the # 3050-P and you'd be set. For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P3 Brake Controller part # 90195. This is our best selling brake controller because of how well it works and how easy it is to setup. This is a proportional brake controller that senses the amount...

    Since all of the Frontiers include the wiring, they may not have the factory tow package on the vehicle. You can easily check this out two ways. Remove the passenger side kick panel and look to see if the harness with the relays are present. If not then you will need to get a wiring harness like part # C56225. This kit includes the relays needed to activate the tow package on your Frontier. Another way to check is to find the gray connector with the cap on it that is located along the driver...

    The Replacement Wiring Harness for Tow Ready Nissan Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118267 is a fit for your vehicle. The brake wire should not be hot and the 12V wire should be, so I believe you have the switched wires you were referring to. Regarding your right hand brake and turn signal, it sounds like you are not getting power from your connection. This often is simply a bent pin at the connector. I recommend checking that and then putting your tester on that function at the connection...

    The Replacement Wiring Harness for Tow Ready Nissan Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118267 will work for your 2012 Nissan Pathfinder as it does appear you already have the relays. However if you have a gray plug with an 8 pin that has a green wire instead of a 6 pin with orange, we don't have a fit for that 8 pin.

    If your 2007 Nissan Frontier did not come with a trailer connector (not the connection points they would plug into) then in order to install a 7-Way you will need to install # 118266. This is the 7-Way connector and the jumper harness with the relays that install behind that passenger side kick panel.

    Replacement Wiring Harness # 118267 for your 2010 Nissan Frontier doesn't really have a gasket at the 7-Way lid. And for something to be considered waterproof it has to be able to be submerged under water for a certain amount of time and not let in any water. No trailer connector can make that claim!

  • How to Determine Function of Trailer Wiring Harness on 2010 Nissan Pathfinder
    What you will need to do is use a circuit tester like part # PTW2993 to test the wires after you cut off the connector by function. To do this you will need to have a buddy apply the various taillight functions as you test the wires to see what wires carry which function. The functions of the wires of the 7-way are: Green - right turn/stop, Yellow - left turn/stop, Brown - Tail lights, White - ground, Red - reverse lights.

    Since you already have a relay harness installed from the # 118525, you will be able to install the 7-way harness # 118267 in place of the 4-way harness from # 118525. If you plan on using a trailer with electric brakes, you will need a brake controller to provide braking power to the trailer brakes. I recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195 with Plug-In Wiring Adapter # 3050-P. This adapter will plug into a port under the dash of your Xterra and in the back of the brake controller....

  • Does the Tow Ready 7-Way Wiring Harness Have 7-Pin or 7-Blade Connection
    The Tow Ready Replacement Wiring Harness, part # 118267, for Nissan vehicles has the 7-blade connection. However, according to our fit guide, the Tow Ready part is only the replacement 7-way connector. If you never had a connector installed before, then you will also need a T-Connector installed to connect the 7-way to the vehicle. I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118266 if this is the first time installing a 7-way connector on your vehicle. You will also need...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer 7-Way Troubleshooting Where Trailer Brakes Lock Up All the Time
    I checked your order notes and it looks like you ordered the # 118266 for your 2014 Nissan Frontier. This is the correct 7-way, but I think what you said is true and somehow the brake output and the 12 volt accessory circuits got switched. To verify where the problem is you will want to use a circuit tester like # PTW2993 to test the pins of the 7-way for voltage on the correct pins using the diagram I attached as a guide. I am not sure how the wires could get switched, but you could...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Wiring of 2011 Nissan Frontier that Locks Up Brakes
    We don't have a separate article for the issue you described but I can give you all the info we have on it. The issue is that the electric brake signal wire and the 12V battery charge wire are reversed in the main vehicle harness. This is the reason that the # 118267 harness you purchased has a constant 12V signal on the brake controller output circuit. Since there is constant power to the brake controller output in, there should be no signal on the 12V battery charge pin. Reversing...

  • Replacement 7-Way Connector Needed for 2007 Nissan Frontier
    If you need to change out the complete wiring harness on your 2007 Nissan Frontier then you will need the Replacement Wiring Harness # 118267. If you have the US carr connector still intact then you can use the Pollak # PK11893, but if you just have bare wires you would want the Pollak # PK12-707E instead. I have attached a picture with the typical wiring setup for a vehicle side 7-Way. You will want to use a Circuit Tester # PTW2992 to verify the different functions of your wiring...

  • 7-Way and Brake Controller Connections for 2014 Nissan Xterra with Aftermarket 4-Way Wiring Harness
    On your 2012 Nissan Xterra, I reached out to my contact at Tekonsha and he said without the tow package you still will have the connection for a brake controller near your dash. So, since you have the relays for your aftermarket 4-way, you can simply use the Replacement Wiring Harness for Tow Ready Nissan Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118267 as you stated and then use harness # 3050-P for all Tekonsha brake controller installations. I recommend the Prodigy P3 # 90195 because it is a great...

  • Upgrading 4-Way of 2014 Nissan Xterra to 7-Way Parts Needed
    Since you already have all of the relays from the 4-way install all you need to convert it to a 7-way is the part # 118282. This comes with the needed harnesses and the 7-way plug so it would be all you'd need.

The blue wire then gets spliced into the reverse circuit wire on the vehicle for the reverse lockout on the boat trailer.

  • Brakes of Trailer Towed By 2011 Nissan Frontier Immediately Lock Up When Trailer Is Plugged In
    We've been receiving reports that on some vehicles, Nissan cross-wired the wiring harness that the 2-pin portion of the # 118267 plugs into. You can confirm this by using a circuit tester like # 40376, and testing the 7-way trailer connector. On the brake output pin, which is in the 5:00 position, you should not have any voltage unless the manual override switch is engaged on the controller. If you test the pin in the 1:00 position, you should show a constant 12-volts. If the function of...
