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 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 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.


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 Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring C56328 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector. This product fits certain years and models of the Kia Sorento. To ensure that this is a fit, or double check that this is a fit for your vehicle, you can use the vehicle fit guide at etrailer.com. This unit's going to provide a 4-way Flat Trailer Connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights. This is compatible with 5-pole, 6-pole and 7-pole adapters. Adapters are sold separately.

It's going to come with a dust cap for the 4-way Flat Connector, that way you can cover up your connection points when your plug's not being used. That cap is actually tethered to the housing. You don't have to worry about misplacing that or losing it. The black box on the unit, this is the included taillight converter, this is going to ensure that your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailer's. The powered module connects directly to the vehicle battery through the wiring .. to avoid overloading your vehicle's electrical system.

That's constructed using surface mount technology for consistent, reliable performance. What that does is it maximizes your trailer light yield and intensity, while producing minimal heat and it ensures superior operation even in rough road conditions. This unit is designed to connect quickly and easily. All you need to do is locate the connection points behind the vehicles tail lights. Plug in your connectors. One goes to the passenger's side, the other goes to the driver's side.

These plugs on the unit are custom fit for your vehicle, so they're going to fit perfectly. They snap lock together for a nice tight, secure fit. Once you have those plugged in, you'll need to make a ground connection at your white wire with the ring terminal attached to it. You want to get that grounded at a suitable grounding location, and you can even use the included grounding screw to do that. Then you'll need to mount a converter box to a safe, out-of-the-way location. You can do that using the cable ties provided with the kit.

You could also use the double sided adhesive foam tape to get that mounted and secured. Then you'll need to run the hot lead to the vehicle battery. The hot lead is a short black wire coming out of the box. This black wire gets connected to one end of the bundle using one of the included butt connectors. The other end of the bundle goes to the vehicle battery, gets another butt connector attached to it and connects to one half of the fuse holder. The other half of the fuse holder gets a ring terminal attached to it and that gets connected to the positive post of your vehicle battery. It does come with your 10 amp fuse, goes directly in the fuse holder, and it's got the cap that goes over it to keep it safe and protected. Once you have that done, you can secure any excess or slack in your wiring with the included cable ties. Then once you're install's complete, the 4-way connectors going to be stowed in an out-of-the-way location within your rear cargo area. Plenty of wiring here. That way you could extend it out the back of the vehicle when you need to use it. Roll it up and tuck it away when you don't. It is recommended that you use a small amount of Dielectric grease in all your electrical connections, like the plugs on the vehicle and the 4-pole connector itself. That grease is specifically designed to help prevent corrosion. It is sold separately and available etrailer.com. When it comes to the maximum amperage for the stop and turn lights, we're looking at three amps per circuit, and for the tail lights we're looking at six amps per circuit. The unit also comes with a set of detailed installation instructions to help walk you through the whole process step by step. That's going to do it for today's look at the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer connector.

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation for a 2012 Kia Sorento V6
  • The only wiring harness for a 2012 Kia Sorento that does not require a direct connection to the battery is # 118541, but it only fits models that have the factory tow package. If the vehicle does not have the factory tow package, you will need to use Tow Ready Wiring Harness, # 118506 or CURT Wiring Harness, # C56328. With either of these harnesses, a few customers found the green wire (for the passenger side tail light) to be a little short. One customer did find an alternate route...

  • Recommended Towing Package For 2011 Kia Sorento 4 Cylinder
  • If your 2011 Kia Sorento does not have the dual exhaust system with a tailpipe on both the driver and passenger side, I recommend the Draw-Tite Class ll Hitch, part # 36511. This hitch has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. I have attached an installation video for this hitch on a Sorento you can check out. You may be interested in a Draw-Tite Ball Mount like part # 36051. This drawbar provides a 5/8 inch rise or a 1-1/4 inch drop and measures 7 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole...

  • What is the Correct Trailer Wiring harness for a 2012 Kia Sorento 4 Cylinder
  • The correct wiring harness for a 4 cylinder 2012 Kia Sorento is # C56328. The other kit you have referenced, # 118506, is not a verified fit for the 4 cylinder 2012 models. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view.

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Options for a 2012 Kia Sorento EX
  • There are 2 different wiring harnesses available for the 2012 Kia Sorento. If you have a V6 model with a factory towing prep package, you can use harness # 118269 that you referenced. It will only fit the V6, towing prep models. If you have a 4 cylinder model, you would need to use # C56328. I have included links to the installation instructions for both kits for you.

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation for a 2012 Kia Sorento
  • The main difference between the Curt Modulite Wiring Harness, # C59496, and the Curt T-Connector Wiring Harness, # C56328, is that the T-Connector harness, # C56328, simply plugs into the factory tail light connectors at the back of the tail light assemblies. The Modulite Harness, # C59496, needs to be hardwired into your vehicles tail light circuits. I recommend using the T-Connector Harness # C56163 because you will not need to cut or splice into your vehicles tail light wires. Both...

  • Best Trailer Wring Options for 2011 Kia Sorento EX V6 AWD
  • The trailer wiring harness you need will depend on whether or not your Sorento is equipped with the factory tow package. If you have the tow package, I'd recommend part # 118269. Without the tow package, use part # 118506. Generally speaking, the Tow Ready taillight converters have higher amperage ratings than their Curt counterparts, like the C56328. Curt make a fine wiring harness, but if I have the option, I'll choose the one with the higher rating. I've linked you to some installation...

  • Pilot Brake and Tail Light Hitch Cover # CR-007A Will Not Turn Off
  • If the Pilot Brake and Tail Light Hitch Cover, # CR-007A, never goes out, then it is constantly receiving power from one of the tail light circuits coming from the vehicle. To begin troubleshooting, make sure your vehicle is turned off and the vehicle lights are off. If the hitch light stays on with the vehicle off and lights off, there is a problem. I recommend using a circuit tester, like our Quickee Tester, # 3808, to test each of the pins on the 4-way connector on your Sorento with...
