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 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.


T-One Connection Location Points Behind Tail Lights

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.


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.

Video Transcript for Hopkins Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - Trailer Hitch Wiring - HM11142155 Review

Today we're be taking a look at the Hopkins plug-in simple vehicle wiring harness with a four pole flat trailer connector. This product fits a 2009 Dodge Journey. To ensure that this is a fit for your vehicle, you can always use the vehicle fit guide located at etrailer.com. This unit's going to provide a four way flat connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailers' signal lights. It is compatible with five pole, six pole, and seven pole adapters. Adapters are sold separately.

It comes with a dust cap that goes over the connection points. That's going to protect them when the plug's not being used. The black box on the unit, this is the included taillight converter. This is going to ensure that your vehicles' wiring matches that of your trailers. The powered module connects directly to the vehicle battery through the wiring, to avoid overloading the vehicles' electrical system. The unit also features protective connection terminals to resist rust and corrosion and it's designed to connect quickly and easily.

All you got to do is locate the connection points behind your taillights, plug in your connectors. Now these connectors are custom fit for your vehicle. They're going to match up perfectly with the ports on the vehicle and they're going to snap lock together for a nice, tight secure fit. Once you have those connected, you'll need to make a ground connection. Your ground wire's your white wire.

It has a ring terminal already attached to it. You want to get that grounded to a suitable grounding location with the included grounding screw. Then mount your converter box. You can do that using the cable ties provided with the kit. Next you'll need to run the hot lead to the vehicle battery. That's the short red wire coming out of the converter box, has a butt connector already attached to it.

This gets connected to one end of the bundle of red wiring. The other end of the bundle runs to the vehicle battery, connects to the fuse holder here with the butt connector. The other half of the fuse holder has a ring terminal attached to it and gets connected to the positive post of the vehicle battery. It does come with your 20 amp fuse, goes directly into the fuse holder and it's got the cap that goes over it to keep it safe and protected. Then you can secure any excess or slack in your wires with the included cable ties. Once your install's complete, the four way connectors going to be stowed beneath the vehicle near the trailer hitch. We do recommend using a mounting bracket to keep the connectors secure and easily accessible. Those are sold separately, so if you're in need of one, you can find them here at etrailer.com. It is recommended that you use a small amount of the included terminal grease on all your electrical connections, like the plugs on the vehicle and the four pole connector itself. That grease is designed to prevent corrosion to the connection points. When it comes to the maximum amperage for the stop and turn lights, we're looking at 4.2 amps per circuit and for the taillights we're looking at 7.5 amps per circuit. That's going to do it for today's look at the Hopkins plug-in simple vehicle wiring harness with the four pole flat trailer connector.
