Installation

T-One Connection Location Points

This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located beneath your vehicle, along the driver's-side frame rail.


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.

I installed the trailer lights connecter adapter into the wiring harness at the rear of my 1996 Ford F-150 today. The wires were exactly were the instructions said they would be located. With some effort after engaging the relief clip I was able to pull apart the wiring harness. Installing the trailer light connecter adapter went easily. I only had to pull lose one wiring harness holder from the frame to give more slack in the wiring harness to make room for adapter to fit. After installation I tested the lights and everything (turns signals, tail lights and brake lights) all worked properly. The quality of the adapter looks great just like it was a factory original part. I expect to have properly functioning trailer lights for a long time now. Thanks.

The products I ordered were received timely, installed easily, and were made of quality material. I look forward to years of quality service from these items. The service staff members at etrailer are kind, courteous, knowledgeable. I would highly recommend etrailer for your trailering needs. The only recommendation for improvement would be to tweek your on-line order tracking system. I received the items before I could track their whereabouts through the on-line order tracking system. Great site for quick reliable service!

This product is just what i needed to connect to my trailer harness. No cutting or splicing, so you get no corrosion. Just unplug truck wire harness plug in this in and you are ready to connect trailer lights. great product . couldn't find this in stores either. etrailer.com saved me lots of time. easy ordering and quick shipping only a couple days and I had the product. Thank You.

Im having trouble with the ground wire trailer lights intermitently work or dont work or some work and not others after investigating found the insulation on the ground wire coming from the product i purchased had come out of the plug at the trailer connection causing the wire to fray and corrode and a few strands of the wire have broke. i have had to add a seperate ground wire to help .
Daniel B - 06/18/2017

Thanks for the follow up. Grounding issues are usually the main problem with trailer lights intermittently working. Your trouble shooting and solution is exactly what we would recommend. If you need additional information here are some help articles that assist in identifying and solving wiring issues.

Easiest wiring install in my life. Unplug one connection and insert the T connection. Plug it back in and voila! Had the bracket to install on the rear bumper, found a spot, drilled a couple holes and it’s there forever now. Couple tie wraps to clean it up and you’re done in 10 minutes. Works perfectly and should last as long as the truck does.

Product works great and installed perfectly just as the instructions said it would. Install only took about 5 minutes and was super simple. I didn't need any tools except for a Flathead screwdriver in order to release the old crappy clips that were on my truck wiring harness. My truck didn't have a trailer light hookup when I bought it so this item worked perfectly for what I needed and was way easier than splicing wires and making my own. Defiantly worth it and would buy again if I buy another truck and it doesn't have trailer lights.

Having an older truck that’s been temperamental about the rear lights lately, I was very pleased that this plugged straight in and worked right away with no disruptions. I was dreading replacing a previous owners abomination of electrical wizardry. All I had to do was snip the old 4 pin wiring away and clean it up so as not to short anything out, then plug in the adapter to the truck’s wiring harness and to the new 7/4 pin plug and I was done.

A waste of money and most important my time, Put it in my old bronco to keep the original wiring Super easy to install just unplug and plug the T and good to go. never use my bronco to pull trailers had it only as an emergency so on December 2018 I need to pull a trailer for my kids quads the wire didn't work, ended up heading to Autozone to buy a universal and spacing my wires in my bronco. Really disappointed with your product.

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring Harness for 1996 Ford F-250
    I am not sure what that plug is for that you found on your 1996 Ford F-250. It does not match what the custom harnesses we have available for your truck will plug into, and based on your photo, it looks like you found it near the truck's rear tail lights. The correct plug to install a wiring harness into should actually be located under the truck, along the driver's-side frame rail. It will be a round plug like the attached photo. Once you find the factory plug on your F-250, I recommend...

  • Trailer Brakes Engage When Headlights of1997 Ford F-250 Turned On
    Since you've already tested the trailer connector on your truck and the trailer also has issues when connected to another tow vehicle it sounds like the problem is likely with the trailer's wiring. Check the trailer's wiring for any damaged points. You'll also want to make sure the trailer connector is clean, both on the pins and the back where the wiring is connected to it. The issue could be that the connector is wired incorrectly. I've attached a diagram showing the standard wiring....

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Lights Not Functioning When Headlights are On
    It sounds like there is too much amperage being drawn on your trailer when the headlights are on and it is too much for the trailer so everything shuts off. This could be because of a bad ground somewhere. First thing I would do is check the grounds on the trailer for any loose wiring and corrosion and fix as necessary. If the grounds are good you might need to convert your trailer lights to LED lights so as to minimize the draw on the trailer light circuits.

  • Trailer Running Lights Do Not Work After Adding 4-Way to 7-Way Adapter on 1991 Ford F-350
    The first thing you are going to want to do is unplug the 4-Way from the 7 and 4-Way so you can test it. You will need a circuit tester # 40376 if you do not already have one. The pin right next to the ground pin is the running light circuit. Have some one sit in the truck and operate the running lights while you test with the circuit tester. If the running light circuit does not work then you will want to check for a tow package running light fuse or relay. Use the owners manual and/or...

  • Purpose of White Wire on Tow Ready T-One Connector # 118316 on 1989 Ford F150
    The white wire seen on the Tow Ready T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, part # 118316 is the ground. If you are needing a feed for reverse lights, your trailer will typically have a 5-pole trailer connector on it. You can use an adapter like part # 20036, and the extra blue wire would be tapped into the reverse light circuit on the truck.

Then, I recommend using Adapter 4-Pole to 7-Pole and 4-Pole, # 37185, because it will attach to the 4-Pole on the vehicle and give you output for 7-Pole round plug and 4-Flat. It also includes additional wire leads for brake, power, and accessory. I have included a video showing installation of this adapter below. I have...

The T-1 Harness would plug inline with the factory harness usually located at the rear of the frame rail on the drivers side. The 4 pole provided by the T-1 would then easily plug into the adapter. The remaining wires would connect as shown in the diagram I have linked to below.
