CURT Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - C56011

  • Custom Fit
  • Trailer Hitch Wiring
  • 4 Flat
  • Converter
  • CURT

Quickly and easily install a 4-way trailer connector on your vehicle with this custom harness. T-connector plugs directly into existing wiring - no cutting, splicing or tapping required. Converter is made using SMT to ensure superior performance.


Features:

  • Provides a 4-way flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights
    • Compatible with 5-pole, 6-pole and 7-pole adapters (sold separately)
  • Connects quickly and easily - no cutting or splicing of wires
    • Locate connection points in rear cargo area
    • Plug in T-connector
  • Includes a tail light converter to ensure that your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailer
  • Constructed using surface-mount technology (SMT) for consistent, reliable performance
    • Maximizes trailer light yield and intensity while producing minimal heat
    • Ensures superior operation in rough road conditions
  • Comes with dust cap for 4-way flat connector


Specs:

  • Maximum amperage:
    • Stop/turn lights: 3 amps per circuit
    • Tail lights: 6 amps per circuit
  • 1-Year limited warranty


Installation

This custom-fit T-connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located behind the driver's-side and passenger's-side interior trim panels in your rear cargo area.


Once installation is complete, the 4-way connector will be stowed in an out-of-the-way location within your cargo area.


It is recommended that you use a small amount of grease on all electrical connections - the plugs on your automobile and the 4-pole connector itself - to help prevent corrosion.


Tail Light Converter with Surface-Mount Technology

A tail light converter is built into this T-connector. Because most trailers run on a two-wire system - wherein the brake and turn signals are carried on one wire - the separate brake and turn signals from your vehicle's three-wire system need to be combined so they are compatible with the wiring system of the trailer. This converter combines the brake and turn signal functions of your automobile so that they run on one wire to properly activate your trailer's tail lights. Note: This will not affect how the tail lights on your vehicle operate.


Curt builds each tail light converter using surface-mount technology (SMT). This method of construction involves soldering electronic components directly to the surface of a printed circuit board. SMT eliminates the need for leads, which are used in older through-hole technology. The result is a circuit board that is smaller yet provides more routing area and that offers superior performance, reliability and durability.


Curt SMT Circuit Boards

Circuit boards constructed using SMT have been shown to perform better under rough conditions with excessive vibration than those made using the through-hole method. And where would vibration be more likely to occur than in towing applications? Curt converters also produce less heat, leading to increased durability and longer life. In addition, lower levels of resistance ensure better performance, especially for parts that operate at higher frequencies.


Each Curt circuit board is made using high-quality components that are pieced together in the most technologically savvy fashion, leading to greater predictability and reliability in functioning.

This harness did not fit the vehicle (2018 Fiat 124 Spider) it was recomended for. The part was recomended by etrailer.com but did not fit. See picture of packaging, It should have been pretty obviouse this was not going to fit. To return it they wanted to charge me almost $xx. Caution ordering from this web site, if they recomend it and it doesn't fit you are going to pay shipping to return it.

I am sorry to hear that this harness did not fit your 124 Spider. I do see that we do not carry anything on our site that will work on your vehicle. I am not sure how this harness even came into your search, but I will definitely make sure that this mistake will not happen again. As for finding a harness that will work, I would highly recommend contacting Fiat to see if they have a harness that they would recommend.

I am quite happy with this wiring kit! It truly is plug and play!!
After watching the video, the install was quick and easy.
I only deviated from the install video, where it concerns the ground wire.
It says to use a drill and make a 3/32 hole and use the self tapping screw, if you can not find an existing place to mount the ground wire.
On the CX-5 there is a perfectly placed nut that can be used, and you dont even need any extra tools above what the kit calls for.
When you pull off the plugs for the drivers side tail lights, you will also see 3 10mm nuts that hold the tail light in place.
Just remove the one below the brake light, and slip the ground wire over it and replace the nut.

I havent had to pull any more trailers, but I have no doubt it will work just fine, the next time I need to unroll it from the spare tire well!



by:

Wiring was easy, aside from some inevitable tight quarters gaining access to the rear of the taillights to connect everything.



by:

Seems to be high quality and perfect fit. I have hauled a few things with it, no problem. My advice is to just fully remove the muffler instead of dropping it. If you are installing it in your driveway like I did. It was very difficult to get leverage to squeeze it into place, but once I pulled the muffler, easy.

2015 Mazda CX-5

Super easy to install. Still need to test it with a trailer though.



by:

Fit my car application and fast shipping. Thanks!



by:

Works great! Detailed instructions.



by:

Great product, does what it says. Instructions were very generic and poorly written, and omitted a critical step - connecting the second in-line plug on the driver side for the running lights. Apart from that the install was very easy. The supplied adhesive mounting pad for the converter would not stick to the trunk interior paint, so I used heavy-duty hook and loop instead.



by:

Very simple installation that connects to the existing tail light connectors without any extra splicing of wires



by:
2015 Mazda CX-5

Item was plug and play as advertised. Paper instructions included are marginal. Site provided video was very helpful.

This is my second installation using etrailer; they've been good to deal with each time.

2015 Mazda CX-5

The hitch was great and went on without a problem. Wiring also worked great. Done! I bought from you because of your videos and they made installation so much easier. I am a do it yourselfer but at 73 was thankful for all you information and help via the videos. Would recommend your site to anyone in need of a hitch.

I installed this on my 2015 Honda Accord for the purpose of pulling my small aluminum fishing boat and trailer. Works great!

Very easy to install and just enough wiring for an Accord that there are no wires dangling in any locations.

Easy to install, worked as expected

I am pleased with your service and the product. Ease of installation is the best thing.

easy install and works great.

Like the fact that I can use my standard 2" ball mounts on this receiver hitch. Video for installation was very helpful.

Carol was extremely helpful on the phone figuring out the part I needed for my aging vehicle model and year, and this was after three trusted mechanics plus our Honda dealership all said that none of them could get the right part, because it wasn't being made anymore, and no scrap yards had it in stock either. Turns out the same part is actually still made, but only sold as a component within trailer hitch assemblies, not individually for repairing the actual vehicle. But, it's the same exact item, so my car is now legal to drive again, thanks to you folks. Very grateful.

My wife and I installed a 2" Curt trailer hitch (and wiring) on our 2015 Mazda CX-5. Total installation time was about 2 hours. We didn't have any problems with the instillation of the hitch or wiring. Etrailer has a video link available, which should be viewed before you begin your installation. However, there wasn't any audio with this.
The hitch is solid and appears to be well built. Occasionally, we pull a small aluminum trailer loaded with kayaks, or other light items.
We have ordered from Etrailer before and feel they are a good company to do business with.

Weve had our Curt hitch for over a year now and it still looks like new. Were very satisfied and recommend Curt and Etrailer.

2014 Mazda CX-5

Shipping was prompt and without issues. The install
On my 2014 Mazda cx5 was easy and stright forward. I watched the install video on the product page for CX5, and just
Followed the steps in video. Took 10min to remove interior panels, ect, and 10 min to make all plug and play connections, no issues.
Then 10min to put panels back in place. Tested the flat connector
As described in video. Works perfectly. This is after I went to Uhaul and they spent almost 2 hours under my CX5 baffled and unable to install a traditional trailer wire kit. I left with hitch only and installed this plug and play kit, completely satisfied.

Second wiring harness I've ordered from etrailer.com. First was for a Honda Civic I was leasing. I now have an Accord Sport sedan and expect the installation to be as easy as the previous. Just pull some trunk panels and connect plugs to existing light fixtures. I already popped the one side to verify I have standard lights vs the LEDs. Looks even easier than the Civic was. Totally satisfied with the price and shipping/tracking of the order.

I use the hitch mostly for my bicycle rack and it works as designed with no problems.I have tested the wiring harness and it operates the lights on my boat trailer also with no problems.Im happy with the products.

by:
2015 Honda Accord

Good communication. Fast shipping. installing wasn't to bad. For me the hardest part was getting the heat shield to fit and align the holes but that was about it. Did it all by myself except for actually mounting the receiver hitch to the car. Needed an extra set of hands for that. Receiver hitch and wiring harness about 2.5 hours complete install.

Works perfect still. Pulled my little 5x8 trailer all over Texas. Its worked out really well.



by:
2015 Mazda CX-5

Another perfect Experience by eTrailer - Thanks Guys! Right Part,
Great Price, Quick Shipping. Don't know why I didn't get the Kit when
I got the Hitch, but now I can tow over the Road legally. Oh, excellent
how to Video - showed me that I have Tie Down Hooks in back!

Zero trouble with wiring. Had to wire brush rust from receiver once. Good Wisconsin rust never sleeps. Generally the whole package is so perfect that you forget its even there till you go to tow something.

    The Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness part # C56011 is indeed the correct wiring harness for your 2015 Honda Accord without LED tail lights. The issue you are describing sounds like a ground issue. Please make sure that the ground you are using is a clean bare metal surface without any paint present. This is more than likely the cause of your problem. Before attaching the ground screw, sand the surface down with some 80 grit sandpaper to remove any connection inhibiting material....

  • Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2013 Honda Accord Sedan without LED Tail Lights
    Curt does list wiring harness # C56011 as a fit for the 2013 Honda Accord sedan. The packaging might not be updated yet is all but it does fit. This harness actually fits numerous vehicles which is why the pictures in the instructions, linked for reference, may not look exactly like your vehicle. The instructions also list the coupe model but again the application guide goes up to 2012 for the coupe and then includes the sedan, without LED tail lights, for 2013.

  • Wiring Connector For European Thule EasyFold Bike Rack On 2014 Mazda CX-5

  • Easier to Install Trailer Wiring Harness for 2015 Mazda CX-5
    You're correct, the Curt wiring harness for your 2015 Mazda CX-5, part # C56011, does not have a power wire that connects to the vehicle battery like the Tekonsha, part # 118563. In most cases I'd recommend the Tekonsha even though the install is more involved. Most Tekonsha wiring harnesses have a converter box that mounts to the vehicle with a screw that keeps it much more secure than the double sided tape that Curt commonly uses. In this case, both harnesses use tape so I'd go ahead...

The other harness offered, Curt # C56011, does not fit your 2016 CX-5 due to a change in connectors from the 2015 model year. Note that there are two major advantages to using the Tow Ready harness.

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation for 2016 Mazda CX-5
    The hot lead is actually a way to protect the taillight circuits of the vehicle. What it does is allows the trailer taillights to be activated by drawing the power for them directly from the battery and not from the vehicle's taillights. It's actually the safest and best way to do it. For your 2016 Mazda CX-5 you would want the trailer wiring harness part # 118563 which is a confirmed fit. I attached an install video for this harness for you to check out as well.

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation for 2013 Mazda CX-5
    Either trailer wiring harness that you referenced would work great for you.

  • What is the Difference Between Trailer Wiring Harnesses for the 2013 Mazda CX-5
    For the 2013 Mazda CX-5 the Tow Ready wiring harness # 118563 is a powered converter that requires a direct connection to the vehicle battery to power the trailer lights. This protects the vehicle wiring and electrical components from damage. Because this unit uses a powered converter it will have a higher amperage rating (if the trailer has a lot of lights) than the Curt harness. The Curt harness # C56011 does not require a connection to the battery so it gets all of the power from the...
