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 the trunk floor coverings, storage trays, scuff panel, and tail light assemblies to access this harness. Once you've plugged in the T-connector, run the hot lead up 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.


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.

Easy install. Watch the Videos on [online] and get a plastic tool kit. Used to tow a sod cutter with my 2018 Fit. Just bought & installed a Curt from etrailer for our CRV because of the great products




by:

Great product with great customer service. Have bought multiple things from e-trailer with nothing but good results. Firmest of my hitch was spot on




by:
Honda

I bought a trailer hitch and the wiring harness from etrailer on line. I watched several videos on the installation procedures but changed my mind about doing it myself. I searched google for Seattle area companies that install hitches and because of the great reviews I called [local company] and set an appointment.
After the installation one of the Technicians took me out to the shop and went over the install and hooked up the harness to the lights up on the shop wall. Brakes, turn signals, brake and turn signals together and the emergency flashers worked flawlessly. He showed me the fuse on the battery and went over the tongue weight and tow capacity limits. Back into the office, Rob went over the awesome warranty.
This was a super clean install! Great service and price. 4 Stars is not enough for this company.
As for the Hitch itself, the 2” receiver is the way to go. No need for an adapter to bring it up for 1 1/2” receiver that most all companies offer for my Honda Fit.
Thank you eTrailer.

I had to make many searches on the net looking for videos that showed how others figured out how to run the power line to the battery. All showed different ways on different Honda models and years then my 2015 fit. This took a lot of time to figure how to get out of the back and run the wire under the car. If I was thinking about, I should have video how I did it and sent it to you. I would make one suggestion, on the control unit housing add a mounting tab were a self-tapping bolt could be used to mount it to the wall. The tape just done get it, it come off the wall.


Comments
We do have a good FAQ that assists in helping run the power wire to the battery. Please see the link below. If the adhesive tape does not hold you can use double sided tape with the module to hold it in place.

Well planned fitting. The box is good for lying on. One hour from UPS delivery to fitted without lifting the car.I think the trickiest part is removing the wires before threading the nuts on.


Comments
Fine,tricky to route the power wire to the back but all worked fine.

Everything was perfect! Hooked up easily and worked flawlessly with the trailer I used to haul away junk from my backyard following a renovation. I have a 2015 Honda Fit EX and stuck the controller box to the rear-left wheel well/frame behind the black fuzzy shielding and ran the harness underneath to the spare tire well, so it is out of the way when I don't need it!




by:

The product works as intended. The most time consuming part of the installation is planning and routing the power wire. Online videos will help better visualize what must be done. In my case, I found that the power wire will fit through the firewall grommet without having to cut it. Besides the power wire the rest of the installation was a breeze.

*Sidenote: Be careful what lug/bolt you attach the power wire to. I had to find out the hard way that the car's computer doesn't appreciate current being drawn from its battery lug. My car threw codes and I was upset, I thought the product was defective. After a little troubleshooting I found the only issue was user error.

Loved the website, easy to find exactly what I needed and ordering/shipping were simple.

That said:

The good:
1. The harness is well made, and uses quality wire and connectors.
2. It is small, and all the wires are long enough to reach everywhere they need to go.
3. The included power wire, to run to the front of the car and connect to the positive battery terminal is more than long enough and has thick, very high quality insulation (Silicone?). Similar to the wire on high-quality multimeter leads. It should stand up to harsh environments very well.

The not-so-good:

1. There are 2 sets of wires/connectors that come off of the module. One is Green, and plugs in to the tail light assemblies on both sides of the car. The other is Red/Yellow/Brown. No where in the "Installation Instruction Sheet" does it mention what to do with this part of the harness. The additional included "Powered Converter Lead Instruction Sheet" does mention this about the Red/Yellow/Brown part of the harness. "If using the converter as a powered module for a 2-wire system, the Red brake wire must be grounded." This could lead to confusion among DIY installers with limited electronics/wiring experience. Luckily, I have been an Electronics Technician for well over 30 years in many segments of that industry and I quickly realized that this "mystery harness segment" needed to be connected to the driver's side tail light connectors. Once that was done, the harness worked perfectly.
2. The included double-sided adhesive foam tape was essentially worthless. Despite scuffing the metal mounting surface in the car with a Scotch-brite pad, and cleaning/degreasing that surface with Automotive pre-paint solution, the adhesive simply would not stick for any length of time. Instead I fabricated a simple strap-type metal bracket out of some scrap aluminum sheet and secured it to the car body with some self-tapping sheet metal screws.

Overall I am quite satisfied with this unit. I just think Curt needs to edit the instruction sheet including that Red/Yellow/Brown harness connection information.

It would also be helpful if the instructions included some vehicle-specific recommendations/instructions for routing the black power wire to the front of the car. I routed mine across the inner fender, down the firewall, then loosened the driver's side of the large plastic cover that protects the underside of the passenger cabin between the front and rear wheel-wells, then behind the rear inner-fender liner and through the rear of the inner fender. I drilled a small hole and protected the wire with a small rubber grommet that I had in my "Wiring hardware" organizer. I secured the wire along that route with wire ties and sheet metal screws.

In addition to the included hardware from the kit, the following might be useful. I used all these in my installation.

1. A quality ratcheting crimp tool with the proper jaws for the insulated open-barrel connectors and in the kit.
2. A small grommet for passing the power wire from the outside to the inside of the car body.
3. Wire ties with a screw mounting hole to secure the wires to the car body. Self-drilling sheet metal screws for mounting the above wire-ties.
5. A larger tube of black silicone sealant, the small tube included was adequate, but not ideal.
6. An automotive trim removal tool. An assortment of plastic body and trim panel fasteners, as breaking one, even when using the proper tool, is not unlikely.


Comments
I have linked the online installation instruction to this comment for you. In these instructions, it does walk through the steps needed for the drivers side installation, including connecting the yellow end of the harness. Then through installing the passenger side with the green-side connectors. I hope this helps clear up any confusion.

Easy to install. Saved a lot of money by doing it myself.
I would highly recommend trying to do it yourself. Not that hard.

The Curt kit works as advertised. All the parts you need are in the package. My lights are now working, so if success is your criterion, then this kit will satisfy your need.

I had four issues. First, the instructions don’t provide any guidance on where to route the power wire that goes to the battery.

Second, they omitted the step where you plug in the brake lights. I figured it out easy enough, but it should have been there.

Third, the 45-minute estimate should have been more like three hours. It really takes a long time to find a suitable route from the battery to the trunk on a Honda Fit. I ended up fishing the wire through various little holes in the vehicle belly panel, up over the rear axle, etc. Some pieces of 5/16-inch clear plastic “aquarium” tubing makes a perfect protective sleeve for running #12 AWG wires through places where they might get chafed.

Four, there’s no COMPLETE circuit diagram showing all the connections and where they’re made. Providing that one big picture would add more value than all the written steps.

Finally, you do have to disconnect the battery before making final power connections. Be careful not to break something while removing the battery terminal connections, because Honda put a lot of torque on those. Lifting the battery connections will make your clock lose the correct time and will make the radio lose all its presets. I don’t connect a phone to my car, but I suspect it would also make it lose that info as well.

Wiring harness worked great! It had enough slack for me to run it properly. Make sure you check what fuses you are going to T off of and get the proper connectors beforehand.




by:

About 11/2 hours to have hitch and wiring done as I am 87 years old and beyond the years of doing it myself self but it was an easy install for the young man that did the install, the hitch more so than the wiring.

  • Install Sheet CME-PCL-INS for Curt Trailer Wiring for 2017 Honda Fit
    I attached a picture that shows the CME-PCL-INS as well as a help article that covers this portion of trailer wiring installs as well. Overall it's not a difficult process but it does take some time routing it up to the front of the vehicle. Since getting through the firewall can sometimes be difficult I'd recommend going underneath the vehicle.
