Note: This kit fills in the missing parts of a complete factory tow package. The plug beneath the dashboard will be located above the brake pedal, farther back on the far left side. There will be a couple of connections beneath the dashboard, but the one that is close to the brake pedal and furthest to the outside is the correct connector. This connector may have blue tape wrapped around it, although not in every vehicle.

Installation

This custom-fit T-connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located beneath the floor panel in your rear cargo area.


Once installation is complete, the 4-way connector will be stowed within the spare tire compartment of your cargo area.


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.


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 Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - Trailer Hitch Wiring - C56029 Review

Today we're going to review part number C56029. This is the CURT T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with the 4-way Flat Trailer Connector. Now this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2007-2011 Honda Element Vehicles. Now on any custom fit part, I always recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show you if this will work for your application. Now this harness provides this 4-way Flat Trailer Connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights.

Now one note on this, this kit does fill in the missing parts of a complete factory tow package. On the Honda Elements, they put a factory tow package on, but they'll lots of times leave out some of the missing parts that are needed, and this is what this part number would include. It includes this taillight converter, and this is to ensure that your vehicle's wiring will match that of your trailer. This converter itself is constructed using SMT technology, which is surface-mount technology. Gives you a consistent, reliable performance.

It'll maximize your trailer light yield and intensity while producing minimal heat. It'll also give you superior operation on any rough road conditions. This whole assembly does connect very quickly and easily. There's no cutting or splicing of wires. Comes with everything shown here on the table. Few specs on this, on the converter, the maximum amperage for this on the stop and turn light circuits is 3 amps per circuit.

On the taillight circuit, it's 6 amps, and again, everything shown here is included. Comes with a nice set of detailed instructions that will instruct how to install it, and it even gives you pictures of where your installation points are, but basically what you do to install this is first thing that you want to do is go to one of the connection points for this tow harness point right here. There's two separate tow harnesses. This one here, you'll go behind the access panel, which is under your steering wheel, and attach this connector. It'll match up to a connector there, and then what you'll do is plug that in so it's connected there, and then you'll want to attach this converter to a flat surface or somewhere so it doesn't bounce around. They do give you a piece of double-sided tape that you can put on here to attach it to a nice flat surface, and then what you'll want to do is this white wire that's coming off the body connector here, this needs to be connected to a good, clean ground.

If there's one nearby, you could use it. If not, they give you a grounding screw that you could drill a hole and make your own ground, and then another thing you want to do is check your fuse holder, and that's where you'll put the-, they give you an included 10 amp fuse. You want to make sure that fuse is put in the fuse holder and the cap put on, so that'll protect everything, and then what you'll want to do is you'll go to the next connection point for this part of the tow harness, and this will be beneath the floor panel in your rear cargo area, and again, you'll remove everything and gain access to a connector that will match this connector. You'll go ahead and plug that in, and then you'll have a length of bonded wire here that you can run the full way out the back. The other nice thing is they give you this nice dust cover that you can slip onto your 4-way, and you can leave it on there if you'd like, but what happens is when you're not plugged into the trailer, when you're storing it, just put that dust cap over those terminals, and it protects those terminals from any damage or from the elements getting to it, and then with those all plugged in, if you have any wire you need to stow or pull up out of the way, they do include some cable ties to use on that, but that should do it for the review on part number C56029. This is the CURT T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with the 4-way Flat Trailer Connector.

My order took a bit longer to receive than previous orders from eTrailer but I did receive it in less than 2 weeks. The trailer wiring harness for my 2007 Honda Element came with good instructions, was easy to install, and functions as expected. The price for this product was quite competitive. I am very satisfied with the shopping experience. 343948

The kit arrived a day earlier than expected. The tracking information provided by eTrailer also included links to online videos, photos, and text describing the contents and installation directions. When I encountered what appeared to be a discrepancy between my vehicle and a connector in the kit, I called customer support and was directed to more detailed information on the eTrailer website that resolved the issue. The customer support person was patient and helpful and the amount of information tailored to the use of the kit on my particular vehicle was impressive. The quality of their service and the fair price they charged will encourage me to do business with them again. 521517

Was simple to install. Rear harness long enough to reach over the tailgate and have plenty of slack at the hitch. Stows under floor in the spare tire compartment. 514642

Very good product at very good price - only downside(minor) double sided tape not very good for securing unit under dash. Easy to install - did what it was supposed to do. 234013

Would have saved 10 minutes if I had read the instructions included with the light kit. The plug will not fit... if you do not take off the protective cover. After removing the cover it takes 3 seconds to install the back part. I was lacking confidence and really did not want to get under the dash so I took the front wiring harness to my mechanic. By the time he was ready to work on it I was finished installing it myself. You just got to find the plug. Will use the self tapping screw to ground. So I almost called twice, but glad I didn't need to. 232324

This is a factory OEM quality product. The accessory pieces are all included and the instructions could not be clearer on installation and even storage of the wire and plug when not in use. The plug is a flat four and is self testing. I will be purchasing my hitch accessories in the future from etrailer. Great job girls and guys! 154619

Ask the Experts about this Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring
Do you have a question about this Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring?


  • Parts Needed to Install 7-Way and Brake Controller in 2007 Honda Element
  • You will need to start with a 4-way trailer wiring harness (if you do not have one) for your 2007 Honda Element. For that you would want the # C56029 that you referenced as it's a direct fit for your vehicle and installs easily. From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install the brake controller. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and 7-Way Adapter part # ETBC7. I attached installation instructions and an install video for this...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation for a 2011 Honda Element
  • Basically the Tow Ready Harness part # 118465 and the Curt Harness part # C56029 are two different manufacturers take on the same wiring harness. Either will work and will accomplish the same thing. I like the Curt wiring harnesses better though as they use a more modern circuit board with makes them a bit more reliable.

  • Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2006 Honda Element EX-P
  • Trailer wiring harness # C56029 has not been tested and confirmed as a fit for the 2006 Honda Element so I cannot recommend it. The safe bet is to stick with a hardwire harness such as # 119147KIT. I have linked the installation instructions for you.

  • How to Determine the Correct Ball Mount for 2007 Honda Element Towing Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
  • It is best to choose a ball mount after you have the the trailer hitch installed. This is because the height of the hitch on your 2007 Honda Element will dictate the rise or drop that you will need. Unfortunately we do not know the height of a trailer hitch on a 2007 element, but I have attached a help article that explains how to choose the correct ball mount for you to check out once you have the hitch installed. I am not sure which trailer hitch you are interested in for your Element,...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Running Lights That Do Not Work on Wiring Harness in 2008 Honda Element
  • Thank you for your hitch purchase earlier this year. When some trailer lights work, such as the brake and turn lights, but the running lights do not work properly, the most common cause is a weak ground connection. This is because a weak ground will be able to pass enough current to operate lights that come on sometimes, such as turn and brake lights, but NOT enough current to also operate the always-on running lights. If a certain function does not work at all at any time then it is...

  • Purpose of White Wire on Curt T-Connector # C56029 for 2011 Honda Element
  • The white wire with the ring terminal (see photo I edited for you) is indeed a ground wire. It would connect to a factory grounding point under the dash, if available. Otherwise, you can use the included self-tapping screw to attach it to a nearby metal portion of the vehicle body. Before driving the screw in, be sure the area behind it is clear of any wiring that could be damaged.
