Installation

This custom-fit T-connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located in your rear cargo area on the driver's side and passenger's side. You will have to remove the rear threshold panel and interior lining to access this harness. Once you've plugged in the connector, run the red hot lead up to your car battery. Connect 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 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 4-pole connector itself - to help prevent corrosion.


Powered Tail Light Converter

A tail light converter is built into this T-connector. This converter is a 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.

Video Transcript for Hopkins Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - Trailer Hitch Wiring - HM11140685 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Hopkins Plug-In Simple Vehicle Wiring Harness with the 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector. This product fits a 2006 to 2012 Ford Fusion. It's going to provide your 4-way flat connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer 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, just goes over the connection points and protects those when the plug is not being used. The unit is going to feature protective connector terminals to resist corrosion.

The black box is the included tail light converter. This is going to ensure your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailer's. It's also going to prevent overloading. The unit is designed to connect easily and quickly. You don't have to worry about cutting or splicing any wires. Locate the connection points in the rear cargo area.

It's going to be located behind the tail lights and then plug in your connectors. These plugs are going to match up perfectly with the ports on the vehicle. It's custom fit for your vehicle, and they're going to snap-lock together for a nice tight secure fit. Once you have the connectors plugged in, you can go ahead and mount the converter box with the included cable ties. You want to get that mounted to an out-of-the-way location.

That's really going to help prevent vibration and it's really going to add safety to the actual converter. Once you have that done, you'll need to make a ground connection. That's going to be your white wire with the ring terminal on there. You want to get that grounded to a metal surface with the included grounding screw, and then you can run the hot lead to the vehicle battery. The hot lead is this short red wire coming out of the converter box. It has a butt connector attached to it.

This is going to get connected to one end of the bundle of red wire. The other end of the red wire goes to the fuse holder. That's going to get ran up to the vehicle battery. It's going to connect to one-half of the fuse holder that has the butt connector on there. The other end of the fuse holder has a ring terminal attached to it, and that's going to get connected to the positive post of the vehicle battery. Then, you can install the included 20-amp fuse right in this area here, and it's got the fuse cap to keep that safe and protected. You can use the additional cable ties to secure any slack or excess in the wiring, and then once your installation is complete, the 4-way connector is going to be stowed beneath the vehicle near the trailer hitch. We do recommend a mounting bracket to keep the connector secure. Mounting brackets are sold separately and you can find them right here on etrailer.com. It's also recommended that you use a small amount of grease on all of the electrical connections like the plugs on the vehicle and the 4-pole connector itself. The grease is included and that's going to help prevent corrosion to those connection points. That's going to do it for today's look at the Hopkins Plug-In Simple Vehicle Wiring Harness with the 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector.
