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

Quickly and easily install a 4-way trailer connector on your vehicle with this custom harness. Connector plugs directly into existing wiring. Powered converter reduces strain on wiring system and is made using SMT to ensure superior performance.

  • 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 point in rear cargo area
    • Plug in connector
  • Includes a tail light converter to ensure that your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailer
    • Powered module connects directly to battery to avoid overloading vehicle's electrical system
  • 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

    • Tail lights: 6 amps per circuit
  • Limited 1-year warranty


Installation

This custom-fit T-connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located behind the driver's-side interior trim panel in your rear cargo area. Once you've plugged in the T-connector, insert the included 10-amp fuse into the integrated fuse holder. Then install the 30-amp cartridge fuse and two 7.5-amp mini fuses in the rear fuse panel.


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 plug 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.


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.

Exactly what I needed for my 2018 Honda Odyssey. Came on time with straightforward instructions and has seen dozens of long trips without any issues.



by:
2019 Honda Odyssey

I ordered many etrailer products for my previous 2008 Honda Odyssey. It performed perfectly. So, I just placed an order again for 2019 Honda Odyssey.



by:
2018 Honda Odyssey

Overall quite good. Ground connection was too short to reach suggested bolt and wire to trailer connector should have been 6" longer. Works as promised.



by:

Installed myself in about 15 minutes, connects to rear fuse panel in driver side rear cargo compartment of 2019 Honda Odyssey. There is enough room to fold it up and stow it behind the fuse panel door, out of sight until it's needed. I don't use a trailer very often, but as cheap as this kit is, having the ability to connect a trailer and its lights was a no-brainer.



by:
2021 Honda Odyssey

Super easy install. Works wonderfully. 10/10 recommend.

For a nicer long-term install, follow the U-Haul instruction video to route through the side vent so you don't have a cable running around inside your back storage area



by:

No issues with this harness



by:

Connector installed very easily. Came with directions that were easy to read and understand. Would recommend!!



by:
2020 Honda Odyssey

Great price - easy to install- only wish the cable was longer to run outside the car. Fortunately there are extension cables available.

Mark D.

8/22/2022

I know I wished the cable was longer before, instead its perfect. Use the extension cable and you never have to worry about your primary cable being destroyed for any reason. Like when your spouse crushes it with luggage in the trunk.

Top quality. Fit perfect.

Perfect fit and easy installation



by:

I rec’d email from Carol C at Etrailer at 7:01pm devising my order had been delivered and a link to this survey. I responded at 7:02 I had not rec’d my order.I did not expect a response. At 7:18 I rec’d another email advising they had called UPS and the order was left by the shed at the road. I found the box there. This is Customer Service at it’s finest? My second order from etrailer, and won’t be my last!

Mike L.

No issues



by:

Total installation was about 3o minutes and works perfectly. Great instructions made it quite simple. Far cheaper than having it done. Recommend getting a traier test light plug.

Gary

3/12/2022

Product is still working fine. Would recommend to any one.



by:
2018 Honda Odyssey

Install was easy. It was basically plug and play except for attaching the ground. I keep the trailer wire hidden behind the rear fuse box access panel and bring it out when I need to hook up the trailer. It is no problem closing the hatch on the wire as long as you keep it away from the latch. Everything works fine with the trailer lights.



by:

This wiring harness was easy to install and works perfectly. I've seen alternatives which require feeding wires all the way from the engine bay, and that is totally nuts. Don't waste your time and energy. This installs from the rear corner, right where you're already working on the hitch install. Choose this item -- it's perfect.



by:

Easy to install system as shown in recommended installation video. I used it to haul a 6x12 trailer I rented from a U-Haul. Haven’t tucked the wiring and harness away to look professional yet.



by:
BMW

Working great on my BMW e46 xiT. Pretty easy install if you have a voltmeter and a brain.



by:

Plug and play, excellent instructions, no problems with the install at all.

If you want a more permanent install, there is a punch out that you can use to run the wiring through. The connector was a tight squeeze, but the result is permanent and no need to play games with the wiring.



by:

Very easy to install- all necessary hardware present includes fuses. Turn key fit and function. Highly recommend for ease of install. Reliability- we will see about.

John

1/3/2021

The wire harness failed even with all new lights on the trailer. No blown fuses - the encapsulated IC failed. Went to Honda for OEM harness- highly recommend that one. Very nice quality.



by:
Honda

Instructions were legit and helped tremendously to make this a quick and easy instal in my 2021 Honda Odyssey!

Dustin

11/6/2021

Perfect



by:

It would be nice if the portion of the harness that connects to the trailer lights was 6 inches longer. Also, not sure how well the tape to hold the electronics box will hold up.



by:
2020 Honda Odyssey

Instructions were not good, but U-Haul had a great youtube video. Also, you should include that you have to buy to hold wires to trailer hitch. But worked good.



by:
2018 Honda Odyssey

I wasn't sure which T- connector would be the best for my needs. Cathy at etrailer was helpful and the supplied unit was basically plug and play. Really appreciated not having to run any external wires.



by:

Super easy install with the help of your installation videos. Don’t be intimidated, do it yourself and save the dough!



by:

Exactly as described, very easy installation, just watch the video, it helps. Took me more time to drill the little hole for the ground cable and to insert the little screw, than to install the cables. Total time to install, like 40 minutes. Very happy with this purchase.



by:
2018 Honda Odyssey

The wiring harness was plug and play just like the instructional video indicated. It took me about 10 minutes from start to finish.

  • Where to Attach Ground Wire for Curt T-Connector Wiring Harness Installation on 2019 Honda Odyssey
    I'm not sure which of the videos you watched, but there are a few different options for the ground connection on your 2019 Honda Odyssey. If you watch the installation video for the 2022 starting at the 4 minute mark, you can see where Conner uses an M6x1.0 bolt to secure the ground to a factory weld nut next to the fuse box. If you watch the video for the 2019 starting at 3:30 they pull back the entire side panel and use the factory ground point to attach the wire. If you can find a different...

  • Difference Between Tekonsha and Curt Trailer Wiring Harness for 2020 Honda Odyssey
    Both the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118781 and the Curt # C56382 T-Connector are custom harnesses designed specifically for your 2020 Odyssey, and will plug into the same factory port behind the driver side trim panel. In terms of function and install these are identical, however I do recommend the Tekonsha # 118781 because it features a higher amp capacity and a superior converter box, which has proven to have a longer lifespan than those from other manufacturers.

  • Why Does The T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118753 Connect To Battery On 2020 Honda Odyssey?
    The T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118753 is connected directly to the battery on your 2020 Honda Odyssey so that it does not cause any wiring issues. Tekonsha does not recommend using the 12 volt socket as it could overload the factory wiring and cause issues. The powered module gains its signal input from the factory tail light wiring. It then sends power from the battery to the trailer lights to prevent excess power draw on factory wiring. Since it only sends power when the vehicle lights...

  • Choosing Between Tekonsha or Curt Powered Taillight Converter/Wiring Harness for 2020 Honda Odyssey
    Functionally speaking, there isn't a huge difference. The Curt # C56382 has a slightly lower capacity at 3 amps for circuit for stop/turn signals and 6 amps for taillights. The Tekonsha # 118781 has a capacity of 5 amps per stop/turn circuit and 7.5 amps for circuit for taillights. Honestly, you'll probably never need the added capacity unless you're towing something that's lit up like a Christmas tree but having a little unneeded wiggle room as far as capacity goes never hurts.

  • Difference between Item # C56382 and Item # 118753 for a 2018 Honda Odyssey
    The difference between the Curt # C56382 and the Tekonsha T-One # 118753 for your 2018 Honda Odyssey is that the Curt is for if the fuse locations actually have pins in them. The Tekonsha option is for if the fuse locations are lacking the pins to activate the tow wiring. The Tekonsha basically bypasses everything and pulls power straight from the battery via the black wire (which runs to your battery) while the Curt utilizes factory wiring on your vehicle.

    Both the Tekonsha T-One # 118781 and Curt T-Connector # C56382 are custom trailer wiring harnesses confirmed to fit your 2019 Honda Odyssey, but I do recommend the Tekonsha # 118781 for a couple reasons. First, the Tekonsha harness does feature a higher amp rating (max 5 amps for stop/turn circuits and 7.5 amps for tail lights compared to 3 amps and 6 amps respectively on the Curt), which just offers a stronger system that's able to take a bit more power. In addition to the higher amp...

    It would seem odd that you would receive 2 defective Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harnesses # C56382 for your 2019 Honda Odyssey. The first place I would like to start is at the 4-way connector. A Test Light # PTW2993 is the best way to check the wiring.

    As long as your 2020 Honda Odyssey doesn't fall into the extremely rare category of Odysseys that are missing terminals on fuse locations #10, #11 and #12 inside the fuse box, your best option is to go with the Tekonsha # 118781. Curt offers a similar option with the # C56382, but in our experience, the Tekonsha harnesses, and their converter boxes in particular, seem to do a better job and have proven to outlast the competition.

    I can see why this might be confusing and there are some differences between all 3 of these wiring harnesses. I'll start off by explaining the differences between the Tekonsha # 118781 and # 118753 wiring harnesses. The main difference is that the # 118753 is designed for vehicles that do not have the towing fuses already in place.
