2011 Kia Sorento - T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package - 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector

Quickly and easily install a 4-way trailer connector on your Kia Sorento with this custom harness. T-One connector plugs directly into OEM tow package harness - no cutting, splicing or tapping required. Powered ModuLite reduces strain on wiring system.


  • Provides a 4-way flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights
    • Designed for use with a factory tow package
    • Compatible with 5-pole, 6-pole and 7-pole adapters (sold separately)
  • Connects quickly and easily - no cutting or splicing of wires
    • Locate connection points beneath your vehicle, along the frame rail
    • Plug in connectors
  • Includes ModuLite to ensure that your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailer
    • Powered module connects directly to battery to avoid overloading vehicle's electrical system
  • Constructed of 16-gauge bonded wire
  • Comes with dust cap for 4-way flat connector


  • Maximum amperage:
    • Stop/turn lights: 4.2 amps per circuit
    • Tail lights: 7.5 amps per circuit
  • 1-Year limited warranty


This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your vehicle's factory tow package wiring harness, which is located along the frame rail at the rear of your vehicle. The exact location of the port will vary depending on the make, model, and year of your vehicle. Once you've plugged in the connectors, insert the included fuse into the in-line fuse holder.

Once installation is complete, the 4-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 4-pole connector itself - to help prevent corrosion.

ModuLite Powered Tail Light Converter

A ModuLite power module is built into this T-One 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 your trailer. This power module functions as a tail light converter to combine 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.

With a ModuLite, your trailer's lights will be powered without overloading your vehicle's electrical system. Because the module draws power directly from your car's battery and bypasses the electrical routes that are used by a basic wiring harness, there is virtually no draw on your tail light circuits.

Video Transcript for Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring 118269 Review

Today we're going to review part number 118269. This is the Tow Ready T-One vehicle wiring harness four factory tow prep packages. This has the 4-way flat trailer connector on it. This is a custom fit part number. It is designed to fit the Hyundai Santa Fe and Vera Cruz, and the Kia Sorentos all with the factory tow prep package starting in 2007. Now this is a custom fit part number so what I would recommend is go to our website, use our fit guide.

Put in your year and model vehicle and it will tell you if this part will work for your application. It includes everything shown here on the table: the harness with the ModuLite power module attached, cable ties, a piece of double-face tape to attach the ModuLite down, and a set of detailed instructions. Now this will provide a 4-way flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights. Again, this is designed for use on vehicle's that have the factory tow prep package. This does connect very quickly and easily. There's no cutting or splicing of wires.

You just use these plug-in connectors, attach them to the connection point on the vehicle and you'll be ready to go. Usually those connection points will be beneath the rear of the vehicle along the frame rail. Now in the detailed instructions it will show you each vehicle where to find that connection point, and it even includes some good pictures to help you out. Now this does include the ModuLite right here on the harness. This is to ensure that you vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailer. It is a powered module.

What that means is it's directly connected to the battery to avoid overloading your vehicle's electrical system. This extra length of wire with the 4-ways connected to is a 16-gauge bonded wire. You just run this out the back. When you're not using it you can just put it inside the vehicle. Also, if you notice the 4-way itself, does have this included dust cap to protect the 4-way so when you're not using it, put your 4-way on.

That will help keep it from getting damaged, and also protects it from the elements. A few specifications on this harness: the maximum amperage on the stop and turn light circuit is 4.2 amps per circuit. On the taillight it's 7.5 amps per circuit. Really briefly how this installs, you go to the rear of your vehicle. Again, using your instructions, it will show you where that connector is located on your frame rail. Plug this t-connector right into that. Then you'll run this out to the back. what you'll want to do is take your double-face tape, attach it to there, and then secure this ModuLite down so it doesn't bounce around or rattle. The other thing you want to make sure also is right here, this inline fuse holder, is pop that open and make sure the 15-amp fuse is installed right here. You can see the 15-amp fuse is installed. You do need to have that fuse in there. Then you'll have these cable ties if you want to take up any slack in the wiring harness. That should do it for the review on part number 118269. This is the Tow Ready T-One vehicle wiring harness for factory tow prep packages, and it includes the 4-way flat trailer connector. .

I purchased the T-one vehicle wiring harness, along with the Curt trailer hitch receiver, for my new Santa Fe Sport. The dealership Service Department did the installation for me in order to maintain my warranty on the vehicle. The cost of the tow hitch set-up and the cost of dealership installation was significantly lower than if I were to have had the dealership order the parts. In fact, it was more than a 50% savings. The Hyundai salesman and Service Department were so very impressed with the price and quality of the tow hitch and kit, I was delivered, that they requested website from me for referral to their future customers that are looking for additional ways to save money in their new car buying experience. My vehicle look exactly like the pictures provided on website. My Santa Fe happens to be the same color as well. Again, I had the trailer hitch receiver, along with the tow kit, installed professionally at the dealership for more than 50% of the price if I would have purchased the vehicle with the hitch included. 154174

Great experience from start to finish. Quick delivery. Perfect fit and easy to install within 30 minutes. Routing the wire harness was a bit challenging but it also was a perfect fit. I only have one picture but you can't see the hitch since it is behind the center panel which is exactly what I wanted. 142647


Everything is fine. Easy to access and use when needed.

The delivery was prompt, the packaging was good, the directions were clear and easy to follow and the installation went fast and as simple as promised. It looks good on the vehicle and worked wonderful too. Not a complaint, but it is lower to the ground than others I have used so a step up receiver is needed. 121448


The unit, instructions and application were right on. Removing the Dust plug was the hardest part and had I been working with a lift and not on the ground that wouldnt have been such a problem. I am very pleased.

I must admit, was a bit nervous about ordering my hitch, wiring harness, ball and ball mount from etrailer due to a large number of negative reviews I had read. I noticed that most of these reviews were not recent but from years past. Not having any relationship with etrailer, my skepticism with this transaction was high, at the time of my order, but the unbeatable price, free shipping and video tutorials encouraged me to submit my order and take my chances. The order process was flawless and I was convinced that I was ordering to proper parts for may vehicle. My products arrived on the date promised and in great shape, after reviewing the video's once again, I tackled the installation process. The install went without issue. and I was testing my new towing capabilities in less than 2 hours with the electrical installed as well. I have no complaints with my etrailer experience and would not hesitate another purchase from etrailer. Thank you for you service and product. 375397

Product arrived on time and was packaged as well as was practical, some protrusion but contents including the wiring harness connector, were well protected. My mechanic completed the job in 15 minutes. He did not lower the tire, just pushed it back a half inch with a bar. Did not even clean the threads for the bolts. Bent the alignment pins out of the way. Also gave me some advice about the wiring harness; Keep it inside the vehicle unless your just about to use it. Then plug it in when needed so it will be well protected. Made sense to me. Get a tester for the T-One Harness since it does not come with one. I already had one. 405729

Good recommendations and advice given at the time of purchase...Parts came neatly and securely packaged in a very timely manner....Installation was cut and dry and plug and problems encountered and a very smooth install....Good job with the install videos but if I could make a suggestion: If an installation video is available on line or there are special instructions for installation or care of the product....that they be included on a highly visible (fluorescent paper) in the packaging...I was not aware of the instructions/video until after the install and receiving this review request....Thanks 340046


Thanks for your business and your review, Rick! We continually look for ways to improve our site, service, and products.I have passed your suggestion to our web developers.

The wiring harness fit the pre-existing vehicle wiring perfectly; the extension which goes to the trailer is long enough for nearly any use, and the harness comes with double-backed tape or a small sheet metal screw to mount the control box. A very complete package; my only gripe would be that only one of the zipties that came with the unit was long enough to go around the hitch frame to secure the wiring extension in place. Not a big deal since I always have plenty of zipties, but something to make sure you have before you install the harness so that you can adequately secure it in place. 156240

I ordered a trailer hitch and wiring kit for my wife's 2015 Santa Fe. I was very satisfied with the quality of their products. The trailer hitch bolted right up with no problems. I actually ordered the wrong wiring kit and had to reorder the correct one. The return was handled extremely well and I received a refund on the item with no problems. I will definitely buy from this company again! Quality products and great customer service! Thanks again etrailer!! 383379

So far so good, video was helpful just as a nice overview. Install was fairly easy, cleaning the holes out with the brush was a good idea. However I would also suggest having a metric tap & die set ready if the holes are extra rusted. I ended up having to clean the rust out (MN winters/ salt no friend of metal) with the tap that was size of the bolts. Allowed for no cross threading, or the worry of breaking bolts. Once completed it was smooth sailing. 255704

Plug and play. 2013 Hyundai Santa fe sport. Checked for the two connections on the driver side frame rail, they were there so I ordered the T-One for the factory tow package. Plugged right in and ready to go in 20 minutes. Photo of factory wiring attached. 102447

The product was received exactly as described. is extremely fast in how fast they get their parts to shipping. The harness plugged in and worked perfectly. The wires are long so there is plenty to work with depending on how you run it. My Santa Fe Limited had the tow-prep package so I had to use the enclosed zip ties for the extra wire Suggestions, maybe adding a second screw to attach the black box to the vehicle as added security. 96517

Tamara caught the fact that some of what I ordered was not correct for the hitch I ordered. She called within the hour and made the correction for me. I received product in record time for standard shipping! Everything was as promised. Only variation in instructions is that the wiring harness plugs for the 2014 Kia Sorento in on the driver's side instead of the passenger's side. Have purchased before and definably will again. 95591

It went in like a snap . I bought the Trailer lighting harness 118269 for my wife's 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe sport works grate . took about 25 min. to install watched the video for the 2014 Kia Sorento the day I order it was just like that lol also ordered the C13152 Curt Hitch that took about 1Hr. because I didn't have help holding it up in place so I had to use my floor jack to hold it for me 131053

The wiring harness & trailer hitch fit and function perfectly. The instructions, especially the video, were a great help. I originally ordered the wrong wiring but Melinda E. seamlessly ensured I got the proper wiring and arranged for the of the return of the improper wiring. I have already recommended etrailer to a brother-in-law and will strongly recommend them in the future to others. 189433

Great experience. I had asked if someone could double check all my select tons. Jameson C responded within a few hours with clear confirming comments in my choices. Parts (hitch, harness,e-brake and harness) arrived in one box well packaged. No damage. All of the information on the site was spot on. Took me far less time to install but the videos were exact. I will be a return customer. 337513

I just competed the installation of my wiring harness. It fit correctly snapping in to the factory connection. This product appears to be as good as OEM at 1/3 the cost. It arrive on time as estimated, I paid for the cheapest shipping and it arrived in 4 working days. It was good to find a product to fit my new 2014 car on the aftermarket,.. Now off to pic up my new travel trailer. 108171

Product fit perfectly. Easy to install and worked the first time tested. Wiring was long enough to allow routing to protect them from exhaust heat. Excellent product. 211902

Installed on 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe LWB AWD. Fits perfectly and gets the job done. A little hard to mount the hard plastic case due to the tight spaces, but I happened to have a 90 degree drill which allowed me to get into the tight space and get a self-tapper into the box and secure it to the unibody. Trailer lights work perfectly. 241697

Ordered a Curt trailer hitch for my new santa fe sport. It went on without a hitch. Looks good on the car. Also installed the recommended T-one wiring harness. That was the easiest one I ever installed. I have bought from many different times and they are always the best in parts & service. I buy from them again. 156154

Hitch for my new Hyundai Santa Fe arrived super fast. It was easy to install due to the excellent video prepared by E-trailer. As I installed the hitch and wiring harness, I kept marveling at how well organized and efficient the program at E-Trailer is. This is my fourth hitch from this company. They know what they are doing. 159395

- 118269

by: Floyd S.09/20/2013

Very easy to install, however a suggestion for the installer is to install this item before installing the hitch...especially if the plugs are on the side of the rear end of the car (mine was on the driver's side rear). Great product, highly recommend it to other do-it-yourselfers and even those first timers! 100787

- 118269

by: Marley B07/10/2012

Once I re-read the instructions and removed the protective covers it was easy to plug in and to install. However, I suggest plugging in wiring harness and swinging out of the way prior to installing hitch, since on my veracruz getting to the plug location after hitch installation was not very easy. 47398

Product worked great on my 2014 Sorrento SX. Just a little difficulty (lack of space) in placing the Modulite black box within the rear driver side tail light. I used the double sided sticking foam. Also, this vehicle has no large plastic cover to remove for access to the connection points. 100061

I have a Bruno lift for my scooder chair. I required a hot wire and ground wire to operate. The product had only four prongs. I had to do some extra wiring. also the fuse hold is had to get to after installation, because it is above the exhaust pipe in the bumper rail. 55613

Exact fit on my 2011 KIA Sorrento Sx. Like the video said, the hardest step was removing the dust plugs on the underside of the car. After removing the dust plugs, it took me about 10-15 minutes to complete the installation. The on line video was very accurate. 108610

by: Robert M.05/15/2016

Wiring harness went in without any issues. (I spent about 20 minutes looking for the Connectors), then I went to e-trailers on-line video. After that the install was a snap and about twenty minutes later I was testing my trailers lighting (all worked perfectly). 250336

by: Cory L05/25/2012

Perfect fit. Installation instructions are spot-on. I would highly recommend installing the wiring kit BEFORE you install the reciever hitch. You will appreciate the extra hand room. Still,not a bad install either way. Took about 20min start to finish. 41631

by: David P02/18/2017

Great product. Installation was straight forward, especially after watching the awesome video. They even mentioned having to open up the conduit to get a little more slack in the wiring, which was necessary. Thanks eTrailer, this was a great experience. 343293

by: Rob06/14/2012

Very easy install. If you are installing the hitch, do this first. I had a little difficulty in finding the wiring hold from the diagram. Keep searching, you'll find it. It's not visible but if you dig inside the bumper with your hand, you'll find it. 44095

by: Mike J.03/20/2015

This was a snap, almost literally. Just remove the two factory installed connector guards and plug in the two connectors included on the harness. Then route it, secure it with the provided wire ties and double sided tape and button it up, that's it! 180000

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport
  • I have attached a link to all of the trailer hitch options we offer for the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. The hitch I recommend for your Santa Fe Sport is the Curt Class III Round Tube Receiver Hitch # C13152 because it will offer you a 2 inch hitch receiver, is rated for higher towing capacities, and has a bit easier install than similar hitches. Keep in mind that your vehicle may be the limiting factor when it comes to towing capacities, but the # C13152 hitch is rated for 900 pounds...

  • How to Determine if a 2013 Kia Sorento has a Factory Towing Prep Package
  • The most definitive way to determine if your 2013 Kia Sorento has the factory towing prep package is to have the dealer run the VIN number. They will be able to you how it is equipped. The trailer wiring for vehicles with the tow prep package, # 118269, is located behind the driver side rear wheel along the frame rail. I have linked instructions for you. If you have a 4 cylinder model or a model without the tow prep package use # 118506. For a trailer hitch, the most popular option...

  • 7-Way Trailer Connector and Brake Controller Recommendation for a 2016 Kia Sorento
  • You will need to start with a 4-way (if you do not have one). For that you would want the # 118269. From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install the brake controller. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and 7-Way Adapter part # ETBC7. I attached installation instructions and an install video for this product as well. For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part # 90885. This is our best selling...

  • Installing Brake Controller On Kia Sorento For Towing Enclosed Trailer
  • In order to use a surge coupler, you'd need to replace the coupler on your trailer, as well as the brake assemblies and possibly the brake drums. You'd also need to run brake lines. Honestly, your most economical and safe way to proceed here would be to complete the wiring on your trailer, and install a 7-way and a brake controller. Installing the brake controller would be a pretty simple process. I'd recommend you go with a proportional brake controller, like the Tekonsha Primus, part...

  • Does Trailer Wiring Harness 118269 Have a Fuse that Can Be Replaced
  • Yes, trailer wiring harness # 118269 does have a fuse in a black holder just below the large black converter box. If that fuse is fine then use the vehicle owners manual to find any fuses related to tow package wiring on the vehicle to check them. If all of the fuses are good and the harness still does not have power at the 4-Way with any of the light functions on then it is likely that the short damaged something inside the converter and it will have to be replaced.

  • Draw-Tite Versus Hidden Hitch for 2012 Kia Sorento
  • You hit the nail on the head. Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite are manufactured by the same company, Cequent Performance Products. Both hitches are identical except for the label. Keep in mind that the hitches will not fit a dual exhaust vehicle (with pipes on both sides of the vehicle). Hidden hitch #87574 is no longer available. If you are interested in a hitch with a less obtrusive appearance, the Curt Class III, part # C13073 might be a better alternative. I have edited a photo for you...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport
  • Yes, the Curt trailer hitch # C13152 will fit your 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. I have linked the instructions and a video showing the installation of the hitch on a similar vehicle. If you plan on doing some towing with the hitch then I also recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. For trailer wiring there are a couple of options. If your Santa Fe came with the factory tow package (the dealer should...

  • Parts Needed to Add a 7-Way to a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • First you would need a 4-way for your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe to start for trailer wiring. For that you would need the part # 118269. Now if your trailer does not have brakes all you would need is the part # 37185 as an adapter to convert the 4-way to a 7-way. If you do have trailer brakes you would need the # ETBC7 instead of the # 37185 and a brake controller. This kit comes with everything needed to wire up the 7-way and install a brake controller. For a brake controller I would...

  • How to Add a 7-Way Trailer Connector to a 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • You will need a few different items to add a 7-way trailer connector to your 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe because Hyundai did not offer a factory connection for a 7-way trailer connector, only for a 4-way. If your Santa Fe was pre-wired for the factory tow package, then the first item that you will want is the Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness, # 118269. This will add a 4-way flat trailer connector. I have attached an installation video for you to check out. Next, you will need our Universal...

  • Comparing Draw-Tite and Curt Trailer Hitches for a 2016 Kia Sorento 4 Cylinder
  • The Curt trailer hitch # C13195 and Draw-Tite hitch # 75908 have similar designs and install the same way. Customers like the finish on the Curt hitch more. The biggest different is the tongue weight capacity of each of the hitches. The Curt hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 750 pounds and the Draw-Tite is rated at 500 pounds. But you have to go by the lowest rated component in the system. According to the owner's manual the Kia Sorento has a maximum tongue weight capacity of 280...

  • Recommended Brake Controller And Wiring For 2017 Kia Sorento With Factory Tow Package
  • The brake controller I recommend for your 2017 Sorento is the P3, part # 90195. This is one of our most popular because it is easy to set up and operate. Since there is no plug-in adapter available for your Sorento you will have to do some additional wiring. You will need to first install a 4-way trailer harness like part # 118269. This plugs into the tow package wiring harness that is along the frame wheel near the rear of your Sorento. I have attached a link to an installation video...

  • How to Determine if 2012 Kia Sorento Has Factory Tow Package
  • For a hitch, I'd recommend going with the Draw-Tite Class III hitch, part # 75684 instead of the Curt hitch you mentioned. The Curt hitch warranty requirements state that a stabilizing strap like part # 18050 must be used for non trailer loads like bike racks or cargo carriers. Unfortunately, the small spoiler atop the rear hatch of your Sorento can be damaged by the strap which is why I recommend a different hitch. The Draw-Tite model will fit all models of the 2012 Sorento, regardless...

Instead of it just dropping straight down, you would need to angle it down some and forward towards the front of the vehicle to remove/replace it. I have included links to the instructions and a video showing the installation for you. If you plan on doing some towing, I recommend the etrailer ball mount kit # 989900.

  • Great news! I can help. I took a look at your order history and noticed you purchased the 4-way # 118269 and 7-way adapter # HM48470. This would give you the 4-way connector that you could adapt to wire up the 7-way with those 4 functions. To finish the connections for the 7-way for a brake controller you will need # 5506 and a brake controller universal adapter for your 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe, this will depend on the brake controller you choose.

They install in the same location and even have the same clearance. The weight capacity of the Curt is higher but in all reality they're both rated as high as your Santa Fe so the higher capacity doesn't really matter. The Draw-Tite does have a slightly better price tag so, if it were me, I'd go with it. For a wiring harness I recommend going with...

If you want to use the hitch for a bike rack or cargo carrier I actually recommend Draw-Tite hitch # 75908. The Curt hitch # C13195 requires the use of a stabilization strap # 18050 for any non-trailer accessory whereas the Draw-Tite hitch does not. If you plan on towing then either hitch will work fine.

All of the hitches we carry for your vehicle state that a WD system cannot be used with it. That being said the Draw Tite hitch part # 75908 is a confirmed fit for your vehicle and has towing capacities that are higher than the weight of your trailer. This hitch has a 5,000 lb total trailer weight capacity and a 500 lb tongue weight capacity. As long as your...

However, hitch # C13152 is rated for use with weight distribution whereas the lower capacity hitch is not. Even if you do not plan on using weight distribution to tow a trailer what this means is that the hitch that is rated for weight distribution does NOT require the use of a stabilization...
