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 installation is complete, the 5-way flat 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 plugs on your automobile and the 5-pole connector itself - to help prevent corrosion.

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Curt T-connector vehicle wiring harness with the 5-pole flat trailer connector. This product fits certain years of the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain. To ensure that this is a fit for your vehicle, you can use the vehicle fit guide located at etrailer.com. This is going to provide a 5-way flat connector at the back of your vehicle which is going to power your trailer's signal lights. A standard one is a 4-pin connector so the extra pin, the fifth pin is going to provide connection to the reverse lights to allow proper functioning of the hydraulic brake actuator. This is still compatible with 4-way flat trailer connectors and it's going to come with a dust cap for the 5-way plug.

That way you can cover up the connection points whenever your plug's not being used. It's designed to connect quickly and easily. What you'll need to do is locate your connection points behind the taillights and plug in your T-connectors, one goes to the passenger side the other goes to the driver side. These are custom fit for your vehicle, so they're going to match up perfectly with the ports on the vehicle, and snap-lock together for a nice tight, secure fit. Once you have those connected, you'll need to make a ground connection, that's your white wire with the ring terminal attached to it. You want to get that grounded to a suitable grounding location with the included grounding screw that comes with this hardware kit. Then you can secure any excess or slack in your wiring with the cable ties that's provided.

Once your install's complete the 5-way flat connector's going to be stowed beneath the vehicle near the trailer hitch. We do recommend using a mounting bracket, that is sold separately, that's going to help keep the connector secure and easily accessible. If you don't want to use a mounting bracket, you can loop it around the safety chain loop of your hitch. It's also recommended that you use a small amount of dielectric grease on all your electrical connections like the plugs on the vehicle and the 5-pole itself. That's going to help prevent corrosion, the grease is sold separately and available at etrailer.com. That's going to do it for today's look at the Curt T-connector vehicle wiring harness with the 5-pole flat trailer connector..

I purchased a Class III, heavier duty 2" receiver hitch (675lb tongue wt rating) to replace the factory 1-1/4" and a 5-flat, factory wiring t-connector kit. Both fit flawlessly with very good instructions, looked like great quality and had a great price. I ordered on-line on a Sunday and had conformation that the order had shipped before 7:00am Monday! Excellent buying experience and product. I would buy again and recommend to others. 336694

Great Product at a very reasonable price. Easy install. No drilling just bolted right on. Easy install with wiring harness, hooked right up by plugging in connections and running wire. I used your online video's for how to do it. I am not a mechanic, just determined to save money and I am a 69 year old retired person. 367500

  • Best Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendations for a 2014 Chevy Equinox LT

  • Installing a 4-Way to 5-Way Flat Adapter on a 2011 GMC Terrain
  • Even though the actual reverse lights are located in the rear hatch of your 2011 GMC Terrain there could still be a wire that carries a reverse light signal behind one of the tail lights. To find it you will need a circuit tester such as # 3808 to test the wires behind a tail light while someone sits in the vehicle and puts in in reverse (with there foot on the brake, emergency brake on, and the wheels chocked. Safety first!). If you cannot locate a reverse light wire this way then open...
