2012 Cadillac SRX - Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector

  • Trailer Hitch Wiring
  • 4 Flat
  • No Converter
  • CURT

Quickly and easily install a 4-way trailer connector on your Cadillac SRX with this custom harness. Connector plugs directly into existing wiring - no cutting, splicing or tapping required.


  • 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 behind rear bumper
    • Plug in connector
  • Comes with dust cap for 4-way flat connector
  • Limited 1-year warranty


This custom-fit T-connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located behind the fascia panel on the rear bumper.

Once installation is complete, the 4-way connector will be stowed beneath your vehicle, near the trailer hitch. A mounting bracket (sold separately) is recommended to keep the connector secure.

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.

2014 CadillacSRX

Thanks etrailer. Everything fit and looks great. Installed trailer hitch, wiring harness and 4 pole flat plug mounting bracket on a Cadillac SRX. I'm very please. Parts are outstanding, price was right, and install was easy. Here's a few pictures of the final install.


Installing the wiring harness could not be easier. The SRX is pre wired for the trailer wiring harness just remove the factory cap installed to keep the fitting clean and plug in the Curt connector and route the 4 pole plug for final attachment after the hitch is installed.

2019 Ram 1500 Classic

We are a repair shop and ordered this part for one of our customers along with the hitch.Everything fit great and job went smooth customer was very happy and has been back a few times since to have other things done and hasnt had any issues with hitch or wiring.


This connector worked as expected and installation was easy as described in etrailer video.


Perfect fit both light connector and hitch assembly on my Cadillac SRX. This is a quality product. Definitely will recommend to friends. Quick delivery too.

2011 Chevrolet Silverado

I took a chance that my 2011 SRX Premium had the trailer wiring harness and all I needed was this connector. I also installed the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2". I am extremely happy with the result. I bought this to hook my bike rack to the back of my SRX to take on vacation. I actually don't plan on Towing a trailer with my SRX because I have a Silverado for that but I wanted to take a bike rack and I needed the 2" receiver. Even though I don't need lights for my bike rack I figured I should do the job right. The result was great. I even cut out the rear plastic cover to mold over the trailer hitch. One cool thing I was able to do was to create a cut out for the wire connector in the fascia of the tow cover. I have attached a few pictures. I think this looks much better than a dangling connector or a zip tied connector. I chose a drill bit that was the exact thickness of the rounded edge of the connector, drilled two holes and then cut out the area for the connector to make a tight fit. It won't come out. I am personally unclear which models of the SRX and at what Trim levels came with the tow wiring connector but I can tell you that the 2011 SRX with the Premium package does have the tow connector ready to go.

2010 CadillacSRX

I ordered the trailer hitch and wiring attachment for my 2010 Cadillac SRX, and I was able to bolt your product right up with NO problems whatsoever - it fit like a glove, and I would strongly recommend to anyone - Many Thanks.....


I have had this on my suv for a year now it’s holding up great.
It took me about hour and half to install,I’m 73 so it took me a while to install.
Only problem I had was getting the torque tool in tight spots.


I have not put the items on yet but the delivery and service alone was amazing! I got my items very fast and was very please with how easy everything was. Awesome customer service. I will be doing my install this weekend.


Just what the doctor ordered

2016 CadillacSRX

Quality products & service. Thanks


Harness was plug and play. 2 minute ins tall.


Product was easy to install and worked as expected... Would have been easier if I had done it at the same time I did the hitch, but that's no fault of etrailer hahaha


still holding strong

2016 CadillacSRX

I was suprised and pleased at how quickly the tow hitch and harness was shipped and arrived at my home. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. I had the installation done in under one hour. Looks great and the fit was perfect.

works perfect, looks like it came from the factory.

2015 CadillacSRX

Fortunately, my model car had a direct wiring connection from the factory, so wiring was just a plug-n-play. I used the Curt T-Connector 4 pole - 56096 wiring harness. Not all model/brand of vehicles have this direct plug-in feature. Wiring it much more extension in those cases.


I received my order (hitch receiver and electrical hookup) in a very prompt manner. I did take several weeks for me to get around to the install. But when I did, it was as easy and quick as stated. The electrical connection plugged right in without much effort at all. The receiver was a perfect fit. Bolted right on! I didn't include pictures because my vehicle is already very well covered in that regard. Same color and all.
Bottom line is the whole set up is very cost effective and was completely done installing within 45 minutes. Couldn't be more satisfied. Thank you e-trailer!!

2010 CadillacSRX

I ordered two products at different times and both were delivered in a timely manner and preformed as expected. I'm very pleased with E-Trainer. They perform as advertised. Definitely a cut above the competition.


We are very pleased with the craftsmanship and ease of installation of our Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver. We were even able to customize the bumper cover to reattach after the hitch was installed for an aesthetically pleasing look. Definitely recommend this product!

2016 CadillacSRX

Was in a pinch to get some extra cargo space for my 2016 Cadillac SRX so I bought a hitch and wiring harness from I received my order within 2 days and had both installed in under an hour. Excellent on line instructions and customer service. Will certainly use them again in the future.

2013 CadillacSRX

Easy install, great price!


Ordered the hitch on a Friday i was told it would arrive the following Friday on the No Charge freight. What a nice surprise I got it on Wednesday by noon.
I was able to install the hitch and wiring harness in 45 minutes. Easiest install ever.
I will order from these folks again.


After spending big bucks and many hours trying to get a powered trailer light adapter to work, this simple connector installed in less than five minutes and was pleasantly inexpensive! The installation video was excellent as well. Thanks a million etrailer.

2016 CadillacSRX

The process of ordering, delivery, and installation was smooth. The online videos and the installation instructions with the ordered equipment were extremely easy to understand and very useful in understanding the work at hand. This is why I have always ordered my hitches and equipment from etrailer online.

2013 CadillacSRX

Excellent harness adapter. Easiest wiring of a trailers lights to the vehicle I’ve ever experienced. Plug and play. No issues whatsoever.

  • Trailer Wiring Recommendation for a 2011 Cadillac SRX
    In order to determine if you can use Tow Ready Wiring Harness, # 118259, or Curt Wiring Harness, # 56096, you will need to check to see if your 2011 Cadillac SRX has the connection point. The connection point is located beneath the rear of the vehicle behind the bumper. I have included a link to the installation instructions that show what you will be looking for. If you find that connector on your SRX, you can use either harness, though the Tow Ready harness is longer. If you do not see...

  • How To Install Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller on 2013 Cadillac SRX
    I do have an option for you but there is no trailer brake controller port under the dash on a 2013 Cadillac SRX. In order to install the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller part # 90195 you will need to hardwire using a few different parts. I have attached a list with these below.

  • Class II Curt Hitch Fit for 2013 Cadillac SRX
    For your 2013 Cadillac SRX the Curt Class II hitch part # C12070 is a confirmed fit and would work well. Since you have the port for the trailer wiring the Curt harness part # 56096 would fit and work well. For a 2 inch hitch ball ball-mount you would want the part # C45552 or for 1-7/8 inch part # C45551.

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Options for a 2013 Cadillac SRX
    The wiring harnesses available for the 2013 Cadillac SRX come in two different styles. Models that came with a factory tow package do have a plug and play style connector such as # 118259 or # 56096. If you are unsure whether or not you have the tow package you can contact the dealer, give them the VIN of the vehicle and they should be able to tell you how it is equipped. The other style is a hardwire harness such as # C59236 or # 119147KIT. Plug and play harnesses are not always available...
