Installation

This custom-fit T-connector plugs into your vehicle's factory tow package, which is located in your cargo area, on the driver's side. You will have to remove the scuff panel and the cargo holder to access this port. Once you've plugged in the T-connector, insert the included 10-amp fuse into the fuse holder.


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 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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2017 Honda Pilot

Today, on our 2017 Honda Pilot, we'll be having a look at and installing the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness for factory tow package vehicles for the 4-pole flat trailer connector, part number C56291. Okay, here's what our trailer wiring looks like installed. When it's not in use, we can just store it down here up out of the way in our cargo compartment and close the cover on up, and it's out of the way. We don't have to worry about it getting snagged on anything when we're loading cargo in and out of the hatch, and when we want to use it we can simply open up our cover, grab our wire here, drape it down the side so it's out of the way of our hatch latch. We can close our hatch on up, and as you can see, we have an adequate length of wire which drapes down right next to the receiver on our hitch, making this an ideal wiring harness that will hook up to our trailer and yet store out of the way when not in use, so we don't have to worry about the elements damaging it. We do have a dust cover here, which is provided, which covers up our connector when it's not in use to help keep the dirt and debris, and other items out of it, causing a poor connection or a short. This wiring harness gives us the basic lighting functions that are required by law in order for us to safely tow a trailer.

The green wire here is our right turn signal and right brake light. The yellow wire here is our left turn signal and left brake light. The brown wire is our taillights and running light signal, and the white wire is our ground. Okay, this wiring harness provides us with three amps of power output for our turn signal and our brake light signals per circuit. Now, our taillight and running light function, we have a total of six amps of power output there.

This should be an ideal amount of power for towing a trailer that even may be a little bit older and have a quite a few incandescent lights on it. If we have LED lights on our trailers, we won't have no worries at all towing it, even with a large amount of lights on it. Now that we've gone over some features of our wiring harness, we'll show you how to get it installed. All right, to begin our installation we'll have our rear hatch open. We'll take off our cover here for our cargo compartment, slide that forward. Now on our cargo compartment, we'll just lift up on this front section, slide that out of the way.

We'll do the same for the back one too. Now our cargo hook right here, we'll use a flat-head screwdriver and pop it open, and it will hang down by this strap. We'll find an eight-millimeter bolt on the inside and we'll remove the cargo hook. Okay, our bottom cargo hook, we'll fold it down, and we use our screwdriver again. It's a little difficult to get in there, but once you have it popped loose it'll fold down and you'll find a Phillips screw on the inside.

Now this cover right here below our power outlet, take our flat-head, pop it open. We'll remove it. This will get us a little bit more vision later. Okay, now we'll grab our weather stripping here and we'll just pull it back a little bit. Okay, now we'll grab our black section of plastic and pull back. Okay, this white connector right here behind our trim panel, underneath our seatbelt mechanism, that is where we'll be plugging our harness into. Okay, now we'll take our white connector and our ground wire and stick them through this square hole. Now we'll take our white connector and plug it into the factory tow package connector. It's keyed, so it only goes one way. Once you have it inserted, push fully until it clicks into place, and you pull back on it, make sure it's secure. Okay, now our ground wire we need to attach directly to our body of sheet metal with either the provided self-tapping screw or removing the existing bolt that goes to our vehicle's sheet metal and putting this around the bolt and reinstalling the bolt, which is what we're going to do here because we don't want to drill another hole in our vehicle's body. There's an eight-millimeter bolt right here, which we can remove. Take the bolt, place the wire under the bolt and we'll reinstall the bolt. Then we can retighten that down. Now we'll take our fuse holder that's on our wiring harness and plug in our provided 10-amp fuse. Okay, now we'll take our module box here and a zip-tie, and we'll just zip-tie it up out of the way through its existing hole right here. This will keep it from rattling around and it'll hold it nice and secure in place. Okay, we went ahead and routed our 4-pole flat trailer wiring behind our panel where it comes out here in this gap. Now we can put all of our panels back in place. Okay. I'll place back our weather stripping. Okay, now we're underneath the hood of the vehicle. We have a fuse box right next to our master cylinder. We'll open the lid. There's an empty spot right here where we need to install our provided 30-amp fuse. Now we can replace the cover. Okay, now we're going to use a 4-pole flat trailer tester. It's part number I26 on our website, so we can test our wiring. Turn our headlights on. We can see our taillight and running light functions are working, do a left turn signal, right turn signal. Now we'll step on our brakes. Those are working, and we'll try our brakes and turn signals as well to make sure they function properly. As you can see everything's working properly, and that completes our look at and installation of the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness for factory tow package vehicles with a 4-pole flat trailer connector, part number C56291 on our 2017 Honda Pilot.

Hitch was a perfect fit and quite easy to install. The trailer light kit was not very easy to install but not the fault of the kit, you just have to remove a lot of panels that are not easy to remove. Kit worked fine. 641636

Again, fast delivery, great customer service. Installation on my 2020 Pilot was just like the (2019) video. The 2020 video was not out at the time I installed this. It was done without issue in about 30 minutes. Much easier than my 2015 CRV. 715843

Perfect service and product. Product arrived when scheduled; OEM trailer light connector harness was a perfect fit. No need to cut or splice wires. Easy connect of harness to vehicle with OEM connection. Associated video helped locate "hidden" Honda Pilot screw and bolt over luggage connections. Installation time was about 15-20 minutes-very nice!! Recommend this product and supplier to others-good value! 609651

This wiring harness installed per instructions and fit the existing OEM connector. Everything needed came with the kit. I just routed the wiring inside the jack compartment and rolled up the ample wire terminated in the flat four blade connector and stowed it in the jack compartment out of the way. When you want to use it just open the jack compartment and pull it out. I used the double faced foam tape to secure the control box to the inside rear of the jack compartment and one zip tie to hold the sleeved wire bundle securely. Nice inexpensive trailer wiring solution. 552335

Product came quickly. Needed to have the dealership install on my 2016 Honda Pilot as it was quite intensive. Panels needed to be removed and vehicle needed to be up in order to run the wiring through. Cost a little bit but I still saved more than if I had the dealership install everything. I bought the lift kit and my brother installed under an hour. This took a while at the dealership and they are used to doing it. I was able to watch them go through the process. Glad it's done. 261451

This Hitch and assembly parts (wire adapters, connectors, etc...) works and fits well on my new 2016 Honda Pilot wonderfully... Added that I did not have to cut into the rear bumper cover or even purchase Hitch Cover from Honda. Already had several on lookers ask questions about this set up on my Pilot... they were impressed! Thanks again, William 285504

Very easy to install! Took about 1/2 hour if you follow the etrailer installation video on their website. I was able to install without having to remove the side panel weatherstripping and panel screws. I was able to reach inside the access panel and find the harness plug built into the car. I have average sized hands. If you had “huge” hands, then maybe you would need to follow the panel removal instructions according to the video. 553989

Instructions were inadequate for my 2018 Pilot but having installed these things before I figured it out. Simple to do if you know what you're doing. There is no need to remove all the trim panels. The plug is in the upper right once you remove the access panel for the fuel filler. 556839

Product worked as publicized. Timely delivery using standard shipping. Video which illustrated installation was just right. Overall, company and product is what I would recommend to others seeking competitive prices for automotive products. For consideration, there should be an option for "Veteran/Military" discount for purchases. 584603



- C56291
by:

Product works well, what I didn't care for was how the trailer connection stayed in the trunk until using it. When one uses it they place it between the door and body to connect to trailer. I change the install by adding a wire protector and running wiring through the factory grommet for external access. 470806


Comments

The benefit to installing the trailer wiring harness so the connector is stored in the cargo/trunk area is that the connector is protected from damage and exposure to the elements. When needed, the hatch/trunk has enough weatherstripping so it can safely be closed on the wire without damaging it in any way, as long as you stay away from the latch. I use my minivan to tow my 2-PWC trailer, and Ive used this type of set-up for 5 years. It works very well.

This product was exactly what I was looking for. Thanks to the installation instructions and video, I had no problems installing it! I am very satisfied with the Curt hitch receiver and wiring harness that I purchased. Honda does a great job manufacturing the Pilot such that the hitch receiver just bolts right on, and the wiring harness simply plugs right in. This is my second Honda Pilot (2005 and 2016) where I have shopped at etrailer.com for my accessories and save a bunch! 270663

Fit our 2020 Pilot perfectly. Everything you need is included. BE SURE TO FOLLOW THE VIDEOS ON THE WEBSITE EXACTLY, especially how and where to pry to remove the plastic trim without damage. Only improvement I can suggest is the double sided tape, used to secure the module, should be thicker to bond over the manufacturer's caulking. 728653

I purchased this trailer hitch for pulling a small trailer for a kayak. Great product, fast delivery, easy install. The bristle brush would have been helpful since I had one stubborn bolt. Wd40 took care of it. I just slid under my car and installed solo, which was challenging but doable. 139lbs of torque took some strength. Overall I was impressed with the delivery and packing. I received the trailer hitch in a box where it was fastened with other cardboard and staples. Not one ding. I ordered this same product from [online retailer] and it came to me like it was thrown down a stair case. [online retailer] delivers the hitch without a box and just had bubble wrap on the receiver end. Overall great price and I would definitely recommend this company. I also purchased the wiring harness for the trailer light and the trailer hitch ball mount. Both products were also neatly boxed with the trailer hitch. Two thumbs up. 719184

by:

The product was great, instructions easy to follow, and I'm thankful that there were pictures too! My only complaint was the phillips head on the screw I had to remove to get under the panel was so tight and stripped from the factory I had to drill it out. Still only a 30 minute project. 707122

by:

The directions were about 70% correct. It was unnecessary to remove half the plastic noted in the directions. Some of the directions for removal of the plastic trim were not accurate. I worked around these errors; the harness works fine electrically. 705047

I have nothing but good things to say about etrailer.com . The tow bar fit perfect, and with a little finagling, I was able to mount it by myself. The hardest part was getting the first bolt in place while laying on my back under the car. It gets pretty tight under there. I don't know how easy the harness wiring will be to install. Being a procrastinator, I haven't tried yet. I think the most important thing was the customer service and professionalism from etrailer. From the time I placed my order (I believe they were the lowest price) until now when they asked for a one year followup on my satisfaction, these people have been helpful and great to work with throughout. Thanks again, Tom 681461

This wiring harness is a great value. It was simple to install using directions supplied by etrailer.com and has worked flawlessly every time I have plugged it in.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Honda Pilot
  • For your 2018 Honda Pilot I really like the etrailer.com Class III Trailer Hitch, # E98840, because the hidden design gives it an inconspicuous OEM look without sacrificing any towing or tongue weight capacity. It is also the only trailer hitch for your vehicle with the matte finish which keeps your hitch from sticking out like a sore thumb.

  • Both the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13146 that you are interested in and the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75225 are identical in weight capacities and installation as well so either one will do a great job. Since you are interested in the Curt option I recommend going ahead with that trailer hitch. You will need to note that neither of these options will fit your 2017 Honda Pilot if you have the full size spare tire. You need the mini spare for proper installation. This will work great with...

The Curt harness is designed to store in the interior body compartment of the Pilot. No need to install this harness through the Pilot's body.

  • Fuse Location for Installing Trailer Wiring on a 2018 Honda Pilot
  • I would be glad to help! When installing the Curt T-Connector # C56291 on your 2018 Honda Pilot, it looks like the location for the included fuse is the number 2 location in the fuse box that is located near the brake fluid reservoir (near the driver's side under your hood). If you check out the linked installation video on a 2017 Pilot you can see this being done. If you don't already have a trailer hitch and a hitch ball kit then I recommend the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver...

  • Will the Curt T-Connector Harness 56291 Fit a 2019 Honda Pilot Without Tow Package
  • The Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness part # C56291 will work for you whether you have the factory tow package or not. However, if you do not have the factory tow package then you will need to insert the included fuses into the fuse box in order to activate the trailer lights. If you take a look at the attached photo you will be able to see where the trailer plug is located. I have attached an install video for you as well which also shows this process.

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring for 2019 Honda Pilot
  • We actually have a few wiring harnesses to fit your 2019 Honda Pilot now. I recommend the Curt, part # C56291, because it includes all of the necessary fuses to activate the tow package as well as the harness itself. I've linked a video showing the install on a 2017 Pilot. It's basically the same process. Basically, you connect the harness plugs into a connector behind the trim panel on the driver's side in the rear cargo area. The connector is still there even if you don't have...

  • Trailer Lights Cut Out When Attached to 2017 Honda Pilot with LED Tail Lights
  • The Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness part # C56291 installs via a factory tow package port that is present on all models of the 2017 Honda Pilot with or without the factory tow package. This factory tow package port is wired independently of the factory tail light circuits therefore there won't be any issues with the limited amp draw of your factory LED tail lights. If the trailer wiring harness you are using now does splice into the tail lights then this is most likely why you are...

  • 4-Way Flat Connector Options for a 2018 Honda Pilot
  • If you are wanting to install the 4-Way flat connector on your 2018 Honda Pilot so that it stays in your rear compartment area and you only drape it over your bumper when you are using it then I recommend the Curt T-Connector # C56291. This is best if you only plan on using it occasionally. However, if you would rather install the 4-Way flat connector so that it stays permanently by the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13146 that you installed, then I recommend the Tekonsha T-One # 118760...

  • Trailer Wiring Needed to Tow a Small Trailer with a 2018 Honda Pilot
  • For a 4-Way connector to tow your small trailer I recommend using the Curt T-Connector # C56291. This plugs right into existing wiring on your 2018 Honda Pilot, includes all of the fuses needed to activate your tow package, and will provide all of the signals for the basic lighting functions on your trailer. To complete your towing setup you will also need a ball mount and hitch ball. I recommend a ball mount kit like the Curt # C45036 but you will want to check out the linked helpful...

  • Recommended Wiring Harness for 2016 Honda Pilot without Tow Package
  • The Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness # C56291 referenced in your question will work on your 2016 Honda Pilot whether or not it has the factory tow package. Your vehicle will still have the necessary ports behind the driver side trim panel where the T-connector will plug into. This will provide a 4-way connector at the rear of your Pilot in order to power your trailer's signal lights. I have attached an installation video on the 2016 Honda Pilot that you can use for reference.

  • Parts Needed to Install 7-Way and Brake Controller in 2019 Honda Pilot Touring
  • You will have to do some hardwiring to install trailer wiring and a brake controller to your 2019 Honda Pilot but it's not as in-depth as you'd think most likely. The price the dealer is asking is pretty high if it's just labor. So the easiest to install brake controller that also works really well is the Curt Echo Mobile part # C51180. Basically this just plugs into an active 7-way and once you sync it to your phone it's ready to go. This brake controller is proportional which means...

  • Trailer Hitch, Wiring, and Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2016 Honda Pilot
  • For a trailer hitch for your 2016 Honda Pilot we have the Curt Hitch part # C13146 that has a 6,000 lb trailer capacity and a 900 lb tongue weight capacity. You should note that if your vehicle has lower capacities (sounds like it does), you would need to go by the lower figures as overall capacity. For trailer wiring you would want the part # C56291 which has been confirmed as a fit. For a transmission cooler the part # D13503 would be a great option. Transmission coolers are pretty...

  • Would Ball Mounts of Kit # 989900 Clear Rear Bumper of 2017 Honda Pilot
  • If you check out the picture I attached you will see the profile of a 2017 Honda Pilot with the Draw Tite hitch part # 75225 installed on it. A ball mount could pretty easily fit the hitch and clear the bumper. The ball mounts that come with the part # 989900 would easily fit the hitch and not interfere with the bumper. The trailer wiring part # C56291 would also be a confirmed fit too. I attached an install video for this kit and the hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Solution for 4-Way Round Connector on Trailer to 4-Way Flat Connector on 2016 Honda Pilot
  • I do have a solution for you but unfortunately there are no adapters for a round 4-Way connector on your trailer to the Curt T-Connector # C56291 on your 2016 Honda Pilot. Instead what you will need to do is swap out the 4-Way round connector on your trailer for a 4-Way flat connector. I recommend cutting the connector off and splicing the Hopkins Endurance Easy-Pull Harness # HM38134 on your trailer wiring so that you get a connector on your trailer that is compatible with your vehicle....

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2016 Honda Pilot
  • Hidden Hitch is the brand name. It isn't a description of the hitch appearance once installed so it is sort of a misnomer. But it also depends on the vehicle because in some cases everything but the receiver could be hidden but so should all the hitches for the same vehicle. On a 2016 Honda Pilot or Acura MDX the hitch mounting brackets and cross beam would be hidden. I have included a picture as an example. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900....

  • Troubleshooting No Signals on Curt 4-Pole Trailer Wiring Harness C56291
  • Thank you for your recent purchase from etrailer. I see that you ordered Curt 4-pole wiring harness # C56291. This is a correct fit for the 2016 Honda Pilot that has the factory tow package. The ground remains the most likely cause for no signals on your 4-pole. Without a solid bare metal-to-bare metal ground connection the harness will not function. Make sure your ground wire is tightly affixed to a clean bare metal surface on the car. Sand or clean the grounding point to remove paint...

I have included a link to a video showing an example installation of this trailer hitch for you. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900.

  • Tekonsha P3 Compatibility With 2020 Honda Pilot

In that case the # ETBC7 and a 4 flat connector like the # C56291 would be needed to complete your wiring. There is no plug and play wiring available per the Tekonsha fit guide. If you have the factory 7-way connector, I would instead recommend the Curt Echo Mobile Trailer Brake Controller # C51180 as a plug and play brake controller...
