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. You will have to remove some interior trim paneling to access this harness.


Once installation is complete, the 4-way connector will be stowed in your rear 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.


Tail Light Converter

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

It is designed to fit the 1999-2005 Suzuki Vitara and Grand Vitara. Fits the 1998-2004 Chevrolet Tracker, the 1996-2005 Geo Tracker, and the 2001-2005 Suzuki XL7. And on a custom-fit part like this, I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use the fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, it'll show you if this'll work for your application.This harness provides this four-way flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights. It is compatible with five-pole, six-pole, and seven-pole adapters that we do sell separately on our website.

Does connect very quickly and easily. There's no cutting or splicing of any wires. You just basically locate the connection point in your rear cargo area, plug in this T-connector to the matching connector in your vehicle, and then run this length of wire out the back to plug in to your trailer.It does include this tail light converter. This is to ensure that your vehicle's wire'll match that of your trailer. They do use protective connection terminal to help resist corrosion, and it does come with everything shown here on the table.

It comes with the nice dust cover for the four-way, so when you're not plugged in to your trailer, you just put that over the terminal. Protects it from any elements or from any damage. Comes with a couple cable ties to take up any slack in the wiring, and even has this nice terminal grease packet. Any time you make electrical connections, you want to put some of the terminal grease on the connectors to keep it from corroding.Few specs on this harness.

2003 Honda Element

Less than $20 for a custom 5wire-to-4wire adapter=great deal. It's a little tricky getting the passenger rear side panel loose enough to gain access to the plug-in point on a 2003 Element but the instructions were decent. 2 of the 6 screw points were not pointed out but the screw count was correct. Prolly shoulda said right rear seat must be removed and reinstalled. Could have highlighted plastic tab positions that require care instead of just generally warning to not break any of them. A little surprised that there was NO identification on the module itself, not even a part# sticker. Took me about an hour to install but that included some major housekeeping/detailing; dirt accumulates in areas not normally seen. Dirt accumulates in the commonly seen areas in MY cars too. That was a lot of nit picky stuff; I am very pleased. Only took 4 days for value shipping (USPS) to SE PA.


Comments
I do recommend using a trim panel removal tool to safely loosen trim panels and remove fasteners. Part # ALL648544
Powerbuilt Trim Pad Remover
$13.86
helps to safely remove plastic or metal fasteners from door panels, dashboards, and consoles.

Still works great after a year has been really useful. Ive also installed one for a 2003 Chevy Tracker to replace a failed Curt.

Been about a year now and the trailer wiring harness I ordered for my 1999 tracker plugged in to the car harness and has worked very well




by:

By temporarily removing the factory jack from its nest and removing the left rear tail light assembly, I had ample access to drill routing holes and plenty of room for cable wrapped excess wire. Piece of cake install.
