Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - C55560

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

Quickly and easily install a 4-way trailer connector on your vehicle with this custom harness. 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 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
  • 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
  • Limited 1-year warranty


Installation

This custom-fit T-connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located in the jack storage compartment of your 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 plug 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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2005 Chevrolet Equinox

Today on our 2005 Chevy Equinox, we'll install the Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-pole Flat Connector, part number C55560. To begin our install, we'll first open up the hatch and then we'll remove the spare tire jack tool storage compartment. In most cases, we'll then see the spare tire jack and tools and take them out of the storage area and set them aside for installation later. However, for this application, the jack and tools are not present so there's no need to remove them. At the bottom of the compartment, we'll locate the manufacturer's tow port plug. Here is our new Curt wiring harness. We'll have the gray matching connector to match up the manufacturer's tow port.

The white wire with a pre-attached ring terminal is the ground wire that we can attach the manufacturer's ground point just pass the gray connector by removing the ground stud nut installing a ring terminal and then re-securing the nut. Let's go ahead and make our connection now. Now, we'll go ahead and take the gray connector from our Curt wiring harness and plug in to the manufacturer's tow port. Once we match the connectors up, we'll connect them in place and give them a quick tug to make sure it's locked into position. Before we attach our ground wire which can make it difficult to get to the harness and our fuse holder, we'll go ahead, install the fuse into the fuse holder. We'll use the the 10-amp fuse provided with our install kit to install into the fuse holder.

Now, we can go ahead and remove the nut from the ground stud, install the white wire ring terminal and then re-secure the nut. Next, we need to mount the converter box. To mount the converter box, we'll use a two-way adhesive supplied with our install kit. We'll peel back one of side of the adhesive and adhere it to the converter box and then the other side of the adhesive and attach it to the vehicle. We're going to go here below the driver's side tail light assembly to a flat, clean surface preferably sheet metal. Down next to the plug, there is a flat surface of sheet metal that we can adhere to.

We're going to mount the converter box near the manufacturer's tow port. Now with our new 4-pole harness installed, we'll go and try to use it. We'll take our 4-pole harness and run it out over the rear threshold, staying away from the latch. However, the weather stripping is thick enough that we can simply close the rear hatch on the wire and pull out what's necessary to run down to our hitch or accessory. Then once we're finished, we'll simply open up the rear hatch, roll up our wire and store it here in the spare tire tool compartment. Next, we'll go ahead and show you how to test the new 4-pole connector.

We'll take it out of the storage compartment, remove the cap. Take our test light and clamp. Put the test light clamp directly on the white wire terminal and then test the brown wire terminal for our running light circuit. Next, we'll test the yellow wire terminal for the driver's side turn signal and brake circuit. Then we'll test the green wire terminal for passenger's side turn signal and brake. Now that we know our 4-pole connector works, we're ready to hit the road. That does it for the install of the Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-pole Flat Connector, part number C55560 on our 2005 Chevrolet Equinox. .

This is a great wiring harness, easy to install. I was told by my local parts provider that there was not a one step wiring harness available. I did a simple order on the etrailer site and the part came directly to my door. Thank you for your great service. 544546

The Class 3 Trailer hitch fits perfectly. The wiring kit was exactly what I needed and simply to install. That is, IF I knew the correct year of my Equinox. (The hitch was still a perfect fit) An '05 vs an '08 is a total different wire assembly connection & simpler! So I called Customer Service to arrange a hand-to-hand exchange, since they're local for me. NO BIG DEAL! Steve handled the arrangement with ease, recommending the best choice out of three to choose from. Now it is just a matter of getting this project finished. THANK YOU! Your website is awesome from a shopping standpoint. Great job on the design! 710592

Hello George. The wiring installed fairly quickly. I decided to route it inside the Equinox so it took more time than usual but I'm very happy with. Just brought it to a friend this weekend and it still works flawlessly. Actually, y thought they had a wiring harness but turns out they did not.

I needed a 6 wire square harness for my camper that would hook up to my 2006 Torrent. I couldn't find this harness anywhere, so I ordered your 6 wire to wire flat harness and splice my old harness into it. It works great. Now I have a wiring hook up for my 6 wire square and a 4 wire flat both in the same harness. 193375
