  • Custom Fit
  • Trailer Hitch Wiring
  • 7 Blade

  • Tekonsha

Quickly and easily install a 7-way, RV-style trailer connector on your vehicle with this custom harness. T-One connector plugs into OEM tow package wiring harness - no cutting, splicing or tapping required.

  • Provides a 7-way, blade-style 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 4-pole, 5-pole, and 6-pole adapters (sold separately)
  • Connects quickly and easily - no cutting or splicing of wires
    • Tow harness with 7-way connector plugs into connection point behind rear bumper
    • Converter connects in rear cargo area

  • Supplies required relays to activate functions
  • Constructed of 16-gauge bonded wire

    • Tail lights: 7.5 amps per circuit
  • 1-Year limited warranty


Installation

This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your vehicle's factory tow package wiring harness. The connection point for the 7-way harness is located behind the rear bumper. The converter plugs into the factory wiring harness in your cargo area, on the driver's side. Once you've plugged in the connector, insert the included fuses into your fuse panel as indicated in the instructions.


Once installation is complete, the 7-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 7-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 2-wire system - wherein the brake and turn signals are carried on 1 wire - the separate brake and turn signals from your vehicle's 3-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.

This kit is very easy to install on my 2012 Honda Pilot EX-L and came with almost everything needed to install it. It was only missing 4 screws to secure the 7 pin plug onto vehicle’s the plastic trim but any type of small screws or bolts would work. Definitely recommended to anyone who’s looking to install a 7 pin trailer harness.

I purchased this for my 2013 Honda Pilot EX-L. I have not used the wiring harness yet, but the installation was extremely easy and quick. The instructions were very straightforward, and I was able to install everything within 30 minutes. Everything you need is inside the package except some bolts/nuts to mount the connector. I decided to cut out a hole and drill some holes for bolts. I opted for some black ones to match the colors. I'm extremely happy with this product and etrailer's fast and reliable service.

Needed a harness for my 2015 Honda Pilot LX and didn’t want to pay a king’s ransom for dealer parts and install. Ordered from etrailer and got a deal. Came with everything I needed and also had excellent, easy to understand instructions. Works perfectly.

I just purchased a new 2013 Honda Pilot EX-L/Nav and tow package. The odd thing to me is that Honda installs a nice hitch, but no wiring. I shopped a number of on-line services as Honda prices (even discounted) are absurd. As always, I ended up at etrailer.com. To be candid I was not excited about messing with wiring on a new vehicle, but this wiring harness is (#118265) AWESOME! All in it might have been an hour, but directions and all fittings were perfect. I would not recommend the mounting box as it simply is not required. There is a clearly identified area next to the hitch where the recepticle will be installed. We simply used a hole saw on a cordless drill and did a bit of trimming. Once you get the hole "right" it's as simple as drilling pilot holes for the 4 corner. We used stainless steel screws (1/4" x 20 x 1.5" and 1/4 x 20 x 1") and stainless nylock nuts to secure the recepticle even though the screws actually threaded up snugly with the bumper cover. All in all, a very tidy installation! And as always, customer support was awesome!

The product, OEM Tow Package Wiring Harness with 7-Way Connector - 118265, was exactly what I needed. I installed this myself in a 2012 Honda Pilot EX-L that comes with an incomplete tow package (no wiring harness). Installation was easy with the instructions and a little research. All plugs were exact fits. I used a hole saw and cut on the opposite side of the hitch since the harness reached without issue. The application is a little different than the Honda configured cutout. I purchased 4 each of screws, washers, and lock nuts for less than a dollar and secured the connector. I had a mechanic test the connection and everything checked out.


Comments
Hi Casey, I have the exact same pilot, and I am confused about what i actually need for the wiring. Some sites indiacte i need to take out the third row, open up a panel, and do some installations inside the vehicle. Form the comments here, it sounds like all that is required is to plugg the harness into the existing receptacle behind the bumper and install the 7 pin plug on the bumper beside the hitch. Did you have to do the long way or the easy way?Dustin

Comments
Dustin - Connections that are made inside are through the panel which are accessible without removing seats. I think I just laid the third row down for access. The other connection is behind the bumper. Its an easy application as far as harnesses go. Cutting the hole and fitting plug was the most difficult part. A dremel type tool for cutting and shaping the cutout is recommended.

Great product, easy to install and a perfect alternative to the much more expensive Honda harness for my 2012 EX-L. Just a couple of things to note: 1: There is a metal tab in the AUX FUSE box that can be used to mount the black box module. The box is not a perfect fit on the tab unfortunately, but you can get creative with zip ties, etc. to make it work. 2: The grey connector attached above the driver side exhaust tip has a release lever on the back. You can't see it, but it's there and once you're able to move the lever, the connector will release so you can remove the factory cap and connect the 7-way harness to it. Afterwards, just slide it back into the original location and listen for the engagement click. Also, I was not too excited about drilling a 2 inch hole in my bumper and the additional four holes to mount the receptacle into the factory "punch-out" location like many others here did, and instead came up with a different option. I crafted a sturdy mounting bracket from some aluminum stock and attached the receptacle to the mount point right behind and next to the punch-out in the bumper. I like this better as it's concealed, required no drilling and is still easy to access. Pic attached of what I did.

I have a 2012 Pilot with the factory tow package set up. If your unsure if you have the factory tow package watch the video and check the car for the wire attachments in the video. The harness went on in about 15 minutes (max) it was super easy. You will need screws to secure it. I haven't' tested yet but we're picking up our RV in about a week so that will be the test. So far this has been a breeze to work with and i highly recommend it. I also recommend watching the quick install video etrail has on the page before putting it on.

I was able to install the wiring harness without a problem. It took about 45 minutes to an hour the most. I used a 2 inch hole saw to cut the plastic bumper and install trailer adapter. I used four 1/4 20 x 1 inch screws as shown in the picture. Tested and it was okay! The only thing that bothered me was the waiting period from the time I ordered the product and the delivery, because it took at least ten days before it arrived. I think it is very good product. Thanks also for Honda for the good design of their electrical system on the Pilot. Easy access to all the connections made it a worthwhile project to save time and money.

I have a 2013 Honda Pilot EX-L. The wiring harness was easy to install. The hardest thing was getting the cap off the Honda installed wiring. Watching the Video beforehand made the installation easy. I bought the 7-way wiring kit and then bought a 7-way plug adapter for 4 & 5 plug wires. We plan to pull our Jetski with the Pilot and it's a 4 plug on the trailer. After installation, we hooked it up to the Jetski trailer and everything worked great. Good product and easy to use.

Had some questions about OEM locations but figured it out by elimination. The hardest part was getting the plug out of the factory harness. Works great have rented several pieces of equipment and just plug it in, test the lights and go. If I were need another one would not hesitate to buy again

Every thing was of high quality and easy to use. I found my large hands difficult to work inside the fuse compartment so I opened the storage compartment behind the taillight and that connects to the fuse compartment. This allowed me to use both hands and that made the installation easier. The rest was simple and everything worked great. Be sure to order the 7to 4 wire adapter, it comes in handy.

There is nothing wrong with this product. It works just fine. The reasons its not a 5 star review are two. 1)Directions are wrong or misleading for a 2015 Pilot. The pictures provided for the harness install portion (ie. The wire with the relays) dont even show the correct compartment to go to. The directions do say the panel with AUX on it, but the pictures show a panel that has nothing to do with install. 2) the 7 pin connection part (with the flap and attaching holes) is too wide for portion on the Pilot's plastic trailer hitch moulding. Would be better if some bolts (black) and nuts were provided. As well as recess the bolt holes for a cleaner install. All of this is just freviewing the product. etrailers provided fast shippong and great communication. Would happily do business again.

Product fit perfect everything went smooth . Only tools needed really was a screwdriver , a drill and a 2” hole saw bit( to drill hole out for receiver). Best tip for install is when you take out the factory wiring harness Capp under the vehicle by the exhaust is to unclip it from the frame . If not you will fight taking it off. Thanks etrailer !!

Very easy install! All plug n play the hardest part is cutting the hole 4 the 7 way. I did end up having a defective converter box in my kit. Etrailer was quick to respond and sent me a replacement.

Perfect product. the wiring Fits perfect. Recommendation, the connector behind the bumper, the video shows remove the connector cover using a tongs with it in place. I spend more time trying to remove the cover than the complete installation at all. If remove the connector from the purple clip that hold it, you will save a lot of time and headache removing the cover. I also purchase the mounting bracket but didn't use it. I just cut a hole that the 7 pin connectors pass thorough and attached it to the bumper with the hardware that came with the bracket. It holds very rigid.

    It's actually more simple than you think, but they don't make a 4/7 way connector for your 2013 Honda Pilot, so you will need to piece it together. To start, you'll need to use the Tekonsha # 118265 kit for your 2013 Honda Pilot and then just swap the plug out in that kit for the Hopkins plug # HM48470.

  • 4-Way Flat Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2012 Honda Pilot to Tow a Small Trailer

  • Do All of the Fuses and Relays Have to be Installed for Harness 118265 on a 2013 Honda Pilot
    You will need to plug in the converter box and all of the fuses/relays as indicated in the instructions. While you may be able to leave out the 12 volt fuse or relay you will need to plug in the other items to make it fully functional so you may as well connect them all at that time.
