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 tail lights. You will have to remove all trunk floor coverings, storage trays, and the scuff panel to access these connection points. Once you've plugged in the T-connector, run the hot lead to your car battery. Connect the lead to the included fuse holder, and then connect the fuse holder to the positive terminal on your battery.


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


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.


Powered Tail Light Converter with Surface-Mount Technology

A tail light converter is built into this T-connector. This converter is a circuit-protected, battery-powered unit that bypasses the electrical routes that are used by a basic wiring harness. As a result, there is virtually no draw on your tail light circuits.


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.

Nice wiring harness that worked perfectly after installation. The crimp connectors that came with the kit were not heat shrink as they were supposed to be. An easy install.




by:

Year model changes but not a big deal, slight modification to a shield on exhaust. Great instructions and simple to install. Will buy again.




by:

Works like a charm. I had our mechanic install it.

Does the job well. Kind of hard to feed wiring harness up to tail light but just take your time and all will work out.

2016 Ford Edge

We just recently replaced our 2013 Ford Edge with a 2016 Ford Edge, we had used a Curt T Connector trailer tow wiring harness for the last 3 years without any issue whatsoever thus when needing a wiring harness for the 2016 Edge in order to tow our pontoon it was a no brainer, we ordered the Curt!

Good value

Very self explanatory.

2015 Ford Edge

I installed this wiring harness on my 2015 Ford Edge and it works as designed with all connections to my trailer. The installation was completed after some difficulty in getting the wiring up through the very small space under the tail light assembly from below. I did have to remove the vehicle's connection to the tail light and then mate the trailer connection separately before replacing the taillight assembly. There was not enough extra room between the taillight assembly and the car body panel to remount with all the extra connection plug assemblies. It is well designed and works but not a real easy installation unless you have experience with one previously.




by:
2017 Ford Edge

Installed and works great. The photos in the installation instructions leave a bit to be desired since several times I found myself trying to figure out the orientation of the photo to know what i was looking at. But once figured that out, it went relatively straight forward. The routing of the line up to the battery on a 2017 Ford Edge SEL is a bit of a puzzle. I was able to remove some of the under trim under the driver seat and route through there, then up the back side of the driver front wheel well using a wire to fish the cable through a small opening in the the top of the wheel well that is slightly behind the battery in the engine compartment. If you look up into the wheel well at the spring top, you'll see the part of opening - use flashlight to see light coming through from battery side. Wire should pass across that opening and down the backside of the wheel well trim.

Worked well on our 2018 Ford Edge SEL. Be sure to properly ground all your lights by scraping off the paint first.




by:
2016 Ford Edge

Easy installation. Reaching for the fish wires is the most difficult task. It helps to feel for the wire. Then pass the bolt through the hole by hand rather than letting the wire pull it through.




by:
Ford Edge

Excellent fast service , wire harness works great , have ford edge sel




by:

Seems they could have plugged into factory harness at the bottom of the vehicle instead of taking half the car apart.




by:
2015 Ford Edge

Item was spot on, it was tough to fish the wires to the light as it is a tight squeeze and it was a two person job. Not the fault of the produce, Ford engineering.
Realistic installation time is 2 hrs and I am not a novice.




by:

Product came very quickly. Easy to install and directions where clear and precise. Not my first etailer purchase, they have quality products and friendly customer service.




by:

Good product, good price, worked as expected. Installation directions were clear and detailed; actual install was more difficult than expected, took 3.5 hours. Product works great and worth the effort.




by:

Simple and easy! What else is there? Just buy it!




by:

It was the easiest wire installation I have ever done, well worth the money !

  • Does Curt Trailer Wiring for 2015 Ford Edge Work with LED Taillights
    The Curt trailer wiring harness part # C56272 that you referenced is perfectly compatible with LED lights on your vehicle but I suspect you real issue is that you have a weak ground on the trailer wiring which is causing your lights to stop working properly when the running lights or headlights are on as this is a very common issue. What you can do is try improving the ground of the main trailer wiring harness and you should see the issue go away. Check to make sure the ground wire is...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Ford Escape S
    The Draw-Tite part # 75758 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit the 2016 Ford Edge S, SE, SEL and Titanium models so it would work well for you. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip,...

  • Troubleshooting A Turn Signal That Stays On Once The Curt T-Connector Wiring Harness Is Installed
    To start, the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness part # C56292 is for a 2017 Ford Edge with the Sport and Titanium package so If you have an SE or SEL model this could be causing the issue. If you have an SE or SEL model 2017 Ford Edge then you will want to use the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness part # C56272 instead of the # C56292. The next step is check the ground wire and ensure it is making full contact with bare metal and double check that all your connections are tight....

  • Troubleshooting Right Turn Signal Flashing Twice as Fast As Other After Harness Installation
    The Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # C56272 should not have changed the speed of your turn signal, so I recommend using a circuit tester like # PTW2993 to test the wires. Next I recommend checking the connections for bent pins and using a little dielectric grease # 11755 on the connections to give you a connection free of debris and moisture. Then doublecheck the ground connection on the harness. Make sure the connection is bare metal to...

  • Wiring to Activate Boat Trailer Brakes for a 2015 Ford Edge SEL
    If you only have a 4-Way on your 2015 Ford Edge SEL, like the Curt # C56272 or Tekonsha # 118669, then the wiring that you need is the Kit # ETBC7. This connects to your 4-Way and provides both 4-Way and 7-Way connectors that are fully functioning. You will need a brake controller to send a signal back to the brakes on your boat trailer. We actually have an installation video of the ETBC7 kit and the popular Prodigy P3 # 90195 brake controller being installed on a 2016 Ford Edge that you...

    For starters, the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness part # C56292 is for a 2017 Ford Edge with the Sport and Titanium package. If you have the SE and SEL package on your 2017 Ford Edge then you will want to use the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness part # C56272. With that being said an LED trailer connector tester like part # F4CT do not always work with all trailer wiring harnesses so this could be the issue.

  • Location of Plug In Connectors For Curt Wiring Harness C56272 On a 2018 Ford Edge
    All the 4-way vehicle wiring harnesses like the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness # C56272 that fit your 2018 Ford Edge will require connecting directly to the tail light connectors. If you plan to run your 4-way permanently outside your Edge I recommend using either the 2" Curt Easy Mount Bracket # C58001 or 1-1/4" Curt Easy Mount Bracket # C58002 to secure the 4-way on the end of your receiver. If you do not already have a receiver I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver #...
