Quickly and easily install a 4-way trailer connector on your vehicle with this custom wiring harness. T-One connector plugs directly into existing wiring - 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
    • Compatible with 5-pole, 6-pole and 7-pole adapters (sold separately)
  • Connects quickly and easily - no cutting or splicing of wires

Installation

This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located behind the passenger's-side interior trim panel in your rear cargo area. Once you've plugged in the connector, insert the included fuse into your fuse panel as indicated in the instructions.


Once installation is complete, the 4-way flat connector will be stowed in the jack storage compartment of your rear cargo area.


It is recommended that you use a small amount of grease on all electrical connections - the plug 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 Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2007 Honda Odyssey

Today in our 2007 Honda Odyssey will be installing a toe ready T1 connector part no. 118438. First we open up the rear cargo door then were going to remove the rear trunk panel and trash hold to remove the rear trash hold you first need to remove the two cargo hooks now we go and pop trash hold free now with the trim panel and trash hold set aside were going to move over to the passenger side and remove the rear trim quarter panel. When removing this panels you can use a flat plated screw driver or a trim panel tool as we are in this case now with the panel free you can see the black electrical box. The top rack corner of the electrical box will match identically to the great connector of our new toe ready T1 harness. Well plug directly in to it and lock in place next we need to take the white wire the ring terminal pre form and attach it to a ground here next to a electrical panel is a manufacturers ground that we can use first of all we remove the ground stud, install the ring terminal and then reinstall our ground stud.

Now we are ready to go ahead and mount the converter box over a new harness. Well remove the two sided tape and attach to a clean flat surface once we completed that well route the four pole harness back over to the driver side and fitted in behind the jack storage area and then we can go ahead reinstall all the trunk panels as we route our four pole connector over to the driver side behind the jack storage compartment well secure the wire to the manufacturers harness using the black zip ties provided. Once weve got our wire secured well go back and just take a pair of side cutters cut off the excess from the zip ties. Now were ready to go ahead and reinstall the interior trunk panels. When everything is reinstalled lets go ahead and show you how to use your new four pole connector.

Is it comes out to the jack storage compartment we route over to the center of the vehicle and down to the hitch or accessory. Be mindful to stay away from the latch as pinching in the latch can harm the wire however the wire is thick enough that we can go ahead and close the door on the four pole wire then once were completed using our new four pole connector we can simply roll it up and again store it in a jack storage compartment and then reinstall the jack storage compartment door. Alright now we have the new four pole connector installed weve got one more step on the passenger side in the lower kick panel were going to remove the fuse paneled door. After we remove the fuse panel door well locate the fuse number five which will be an open slot well now insert the 7.5 amp fuse supplied with their installed kit then we can go ahead and take the label and install it on the fuse panel door to indicate that weve now inserted the 7.5 trailer amp fuse. Go ahead and reinstall the fuse panel door and this is to complete the installation of our new toe ready T1 connector part number 118438 on our 2007 Honda Odyssey..

Ordered a hitch for Honda Odyssey. Received it 2 days ago, installed yesterday - easily, with the help from a friend. Everything fit just right, no drilling. The electrical part was no problem. Today used it to tow my boat in for service. Etrailer was great. Minutes after I placed the order I received an email acknowledging the order and offering to call with any questions. An hour or so later, another email informed me that it has been shipped. Excellent job. Thanks! 58075

Harness works great, easy install. The installation video shows exactly what you need to do. The one thing I did differently, since I need to install a brake controller, was to drill a hole in my trunk pan, cut off the connector and splice them inside the trunk pan. I got that idea from a video where they installed a brake controller and a T-One harness. As they stated in the video, use a 1/2 drill bit which will accommodate a 3/8 grommet for a perfect fit. Lastly, I sealed the hole with some silicone. Stuck all the excess wire in the compartment with the control box in case I need more slack at some point. 77070

I left a detailed review for the Hidden Hitch with THIS product as part of the review because I bought it as a package deal. I will say a quick note on this product alone just for customers information. This was ridiculously easy to install. It literally just PLUGS IN to a control board, then you have to remove a small bolt and attack ground wire, zip tie the wires across to the jack compartment for easy storage when not in use and plug in a small fuse up front. I can honestly say that even someone that is not mechanically inclined or used to working on cars could EASILY install this wiring harness. A great product, great customer service. I give it 5 stars. Highly recommend this product and etrailer.com 86594

Havent used the wires in over a year after our move across the USA. Just towed a boat this late week and the wires all still worked perfect. Had no issues and they were in the same shape as when I first opened the box. High quality product, highly recommend.

This is a great wiring kit. It is awesome that the Odyssey has a junction box that thus just clips into. The only tricky part is pulling the passenger rear panel and the threshold panel and that isn't to bad either. The only tools needed for this Odyssey wiring harness is a 10mm wrench for the ground terminal and a body panel pry lever. The instructions and pictures are clear as is the nice video. Anybody who wants to can install this harness without a problem with the clear instructions. 387560

Thanks for the follow up. The hitch and wiring harness have worked great for the last year. Still five-star!

Installed this in a 2010 Honda Odyssey. Watch the installation video at etrailer.com, which shows accurately how to take apart the trunk panels and find the necessary wiring receptacle. Because I was coupling this to a 7-way brake control kit (ETBC7) I lifted the trunk carpet and drilled a 9/16 hole to feed the signal wires to the underside. (Use a grommet like SWC8055 to prevent sharp edges from shorting wires.) You have to cut the wires and then splice them together because obviously the 4-way plug will fit through the hole. Sealed the hole with silicon, made the splices, tucked excess wire under the carpet, works great. 345880

Solid Product at an Easy Price I must admit, I'm a weekend mechanic and was a little hesitant to dive in to this project. I've worked with plastic parts that just "snap" together/apart before. My experience has been that they are flimsy and break easily. However, the install video from eTrailer.com gave me reassurance that I just might be able to do this. I did!! It wasn't the 20 minutes that some have reported, but it wasn't over 45 minutes AND everything went back together. Hooray!! I had a little trouble with a few of the plastic snap grommets that hold the trim pieces on. Some stayed in the body mounts when the trim panels were removed. I just used some needle nose pliers and was able to pop them out and put them back in the trim before reinstalling. I'm going out on a limb and giving this product 5 stars for Reliability and Performance, even though I just installed and haven't used it yet. But there's certainly no argument that the price was great, I saved myself the cost of paying an installer, and I got to "love" my van a little more. Thanks eTrailer for the great prices and the wonderful install videos. I'll be sure to visit again when I need something on your product list. 1951

I am an aircraft mechanic but there are NO special skills needed for the installation of this wire harness. The only thing worth mentioning is that this harness differs from the factory Honda harness only in that it is stored in the little storage compartment in the rear that holds the jack. When needed it is pulled out and basically the rear hatch is slammed down on it. I didn't like that idea. If you want, you can rout your harness out through a little rubber grommet that is UNDER the carpet at the rear of each side of the car. You will need to cut the plug off and re-connect the wires to do this, but you will now be able to rout it under the rear of the car and out at the hitch assy. You can tie wrap it there and its done! Easy install. 136023

Great product. Arrived quickly and plugged directly into existing wiring harness (2006 Honda Odyssey) so did not have to splice/solder any wires. I have not used with trailer yet but was able to verify that wiring worked with 4 wire trailer light tester. 720503

Website provided everything I needed - multiple hitch options, as well as wire harness options were presented. The instructional videos were well done, and made the installation of both the hitch and wire harness extremely easy. Hitch and harness both arrived on time, as promised. This is now the third hitch / wire harness we've ordered from etrailer - Thank you. 710908

Easy to install, works well, no issues, factory plug and play. Would like to see it come with a metal self-tapping screw, but it doesn't, so you'll need one of those. Installation was straightforward and simple. 697284

I have never regretted ordering through etrailer. As always, this order arrived precisely on-time. The wiring for trailer lights proceeded exactly as expected. The online video describing the installation was very helpful with no surprises encountered while following the instruction. Don't forget to order a hitch pin. Surprisingly, it wasn't included with the drawbar. 693278

Unbelievable - truly as simple as advertised. I was in a pinch and needed to wire a harness shipped overnight. It arrived the next day. This was completely "plug and play". The instruction video on line was excellent. The entire process took 20 minutes...and even saved money in the process. Uhaul was going to charge me $130 and needed the van for the day. 642413

Package was slightly opened on the side. Don’t know if someone from the delivery company was tryin to take a look on what it was or ripped open during delivery. When I opened the package it was scratched as if it was dragged on one side on a rough concrete floor.. but I guess looks don’t matter or minor blemishes on a piece of metal thats meant to haul... but maybe it’s just me. If I get something new I want to be the one to scratch it on my own. When I hear new. I think undamaged. As far as quality/install it is beefy and easy... I was able to do it solo but used jack stands to hold it in place for me. Wiring was also a breeze except for the fact that the video said to use a self tapping screw to ground the wire. I was expecting a screw included in the small ziploc bag that came with the lock ties and fuse... but other then that install was also easy. I would definitely recommend this company for its product for its price. Just minor issues that is no big deal to me. I gave you a 4 star cause there is always room for improvement. 639267

I purchased a trailer hitch and wiring harness from etrailer and one week later they arrived at my home. By noon the next day the hitch and wiring were installed. Installation went smoothly since bolt holes aligned perfectly. Biggest problem was to put the fuse in the fuse box under the dash. But that was problem was caused by my Honda’s design. Very happy with the new hitch. 620233

Wiring harness was a snap, ten minutes and I was done! Had a buddy help put on the hitch, had to re-tap three of the six holes, but it went easy after that, looks great also, I ordered it on Friday, was told I should get it by Wednesday, it was here Monday morning, I was very happy!! Thanks etrailer, you saved me $250.00. 616190

I bought this wire kit for my 2009 Honda Odyssey. My biggest anxiety was getting the interior panels off without damaging the clips that hold it on. They came off with no problem and the harness installed in minutes. The only thing I added was a few extra wire ties because I wanted things a little tighter. It took longer to access to the cargo area and put everything back than it did to install the harness. 501949

Do you have a question about this Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring?


  • Towing Package for a 2008 Honda Odyssey
  • The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2008 Honda Odyssey is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 75270 because it doesn't require any fascia trimming (like the etrailer and Curt might). This, as well as the other trailer hitches, exceeds the weight ratings of your Odyssey so you can be confident that you are getting the most out of the trailer hitch. Be sure to check the weight ratings of your Odyssey in your owner's manual and keep from exceeding it. To finish out your towing setup I recommend...

  • Trailer Hitch, Wiring, and Brake Controller for a 2007 Honda Odyssey
  • Yes, I will be happy to help add tow options to your 2007 Honda Odyssey. First you will need Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75270. This hitch has a maximum tongue weight rating up to 675 lbs and gross trailer weight rating up to 4,500 lbs. If the towing capacity in your Odyssey owner's manual is lower that the capacity of this hitch, tow according to the weight limits in your manual. There is no drilling required for installation.

  • Determining Correct Ball Mount for 2007 Honda Odyssey to Tow Pop Up Camper
  • The way to determine the correct amount of rise (or drop) needed to tow a trailer level there are a couple of measurements needed. First you would measure from the ground up to the top of the receiver opening on the trailer hitch. Then, with the trailer level, measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler. If the trailer is higher the difference is the amount of rise you will need. And if the vehicle is higher the difference is the amount of drop you would need. On the 2007 Honda...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Lights not Working After Harness Install
  • There are a number of steps for you to take to figure out exactly why the lights on your trailer are not working. You did not specify the harness you used, but for a 2007 Honda Odyssey, there are three fits, the T-One # 118438, Curt # C56161, and Hopkins # HM11143115. To start, we'll isolate the problem to either the trailer or vehicle. You can do this by using a circuit tester such as # 40376 to check the functions of the 4-way plug while somebody else engages them (brake, turn signal,...

  • What is Needed to Tow a Trailer With a 2008 Honda Odyssey?

This is a very good start in terms of what you need to tow with your 2008 Honda Odyssey. However, you were correct that you will need a ball mount, hitch ball and pin and clip.

I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well. For wiring you'd need to start with a 4-way like the # 118438 and then convert it to a 7-way with the # ETBC7 which comes with everything needed to wire in a brake controller as well.

  • How to Test Converter Box of Trailer Wiring Harness
  • The first problem is you bought the harness from Amazon and not us...just kidding! What you will want to do is test the wires going into the box of the converter box for voltage with a circuit tester like the # PTW2993 to see if there is voltage going into the box when the taillight functions of your vehicle are applied, and then test the output side of the box to see if the current is making it through the converter. If not then the problem is that the converter box has shorted itself...

To start you will need a trailer hitch for your 2007 Honda Odyssey, Draw-Tite # 75270, and Wiring Harness # 118438 in order to power the lights on the trailer.

  • For towing I recommend going with a Class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver for your 2006 Honda Odyssey. The most popular option is Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75270. I have linked a video showing an example installation. It is a very straight forward install so I am sure you can do it yourself at home. Since you plan on towing I also recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or...

  • Will Tekonsha Brake Controller Harness, # 3070-P, Fit 2005 Honda Odyssey With Prodigy Controller
  • The Tekonsha Brake Controller Wiring Harness, # 3070-P, is only for Honda Ridgeline and Honda Pilot with the factory tow package. To wire the Prodigy brake controller on your 2005 Honda Odyssey you will need to have a 4-Pole trailer connector on your vehicle. Then, you will have to hardwire the brake controller with the Brake Controller 7 & 4 Way Installation Kit, # ETBC7, to your vehicle. If you do not have a 4-Pole trailer connector on your vehicle, then you will need to install...

  • What Size Bolts Used With Draw-Tite Class III # 75270 Trailer Hitch on 2009 Honda Odyssey
  • The Draw-Tite Class III hitch you referred to, part # 75270 uses Class 8.8 M12x35mm bolts with a 1.25 thread pitch. The bolts would fasten to the weld nuts that are welded to the inside of the frame members. When you install the hitch, take some time to remove any dirt, grime and road boogers from the threads of the weld nuts. I'll link you to an install video. If you'll be towing with your hitch, you might also need the following to complete your towing system: Trailer wiring...

  • Installing a Brake Controller in a 2009 Honda Odyssey
  • Installing a brake controller on your 2009 Honda Odyssey will be different than a brake controller being installed on a 2011 Honda Pilot. As you have discovered there are no connectors under the dash for you to plug in an adapter for a brake controller. Your brake controller will need to be spliced into the appropriate functions on your Odyssey. If all of the wiring has been run for a 7-Way at the rear of your Odyssey then that makes your install much easier. For a brake controller like...

  • Comparing Trailer Wiring Harnesses for a 2008 Honda Odyssey
  • The Curt wiring harness # C56161 and the Tow Ready wiring harness # 118438 for the 2008 Honda Odyssey install the same way. Both install behind in a junction box located in the cargo area of the van. This is an ideal setup because it uses the factory location on the vehicle. The Curt harness actually uses a newer technology inside the converter box. Both harnesses would work well for you. I have linked instructions and a video for you.

  • Other Than a Hitch What Parts Are Needed To Tow a Trailer With a 2008 Honda Odyssey
  • Yes, in addition to a hitch, you will need a ball mount, ball and trailer wiring. I will explain what the parts are and what they do, then I will include some recommendations of parts for your 2008 Honda Odyssey. A ball mount slides into the receiver, or square opening in the hitch.

  • 2003 Honda Odyssey EX Trailer Wiring Recommendation
  • The T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118438 is not a fit for your 2003 Honda Odyssey. Instead you will want the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118336. This will connect to factory wiring behind the trim panel in the cargo area on the driver's side. A tail light converter is built into this harness so you will have proper trailer function and will not affect the tail lights on your Odyssey. I've attached an...

  • Parts Needed To Install Brake Controller On 2008 Honda Odyssey
  • I will be glad to help you out with that. You have the Primus Brake Controller, part # TK90160 so that is taken care of. If you have a 4-way connector on your vehicle you will need the Universal Installation Kit for Trailer Brake Controller, part # ETBC7. This will connect to your 4-way connector and with additional wiring give you both a 4-way and a 7-way connector. I have attached a link to an installation video that shows a brake controller and the # ETBC7 controller being installed...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2010 Honda Odyssey
  • On your 2010 Honda Odyssey all the trailer hitch receiver options will be noticeable from the back as even the crosstube is exposed. I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class II - 1-1/4" # 36417 which is the least noticeable based on size. This is your best option for being discreet. The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 75270 will give you more options for accessories and greater strength while being a little more...

  • Can the 4-Way Trailer Wiring Harness be Routed Permanently to the Outside of a 2007 Honda Odyssey
  • What you can do on your 2007 Honda Odyssey is try to find a grommet at the bottom most part of the cargo area in the back. You will most likely have to remove trim panels and flooring to get to the bare metal of the storage area. The bottom of the jack storage compartment or the spare tire well are good places to look for a grommet. If there is a grommet then you can cut a slit in it and run the 4-Way end through (though you may have to cut the 4-Way end wiring in half and splice it...

  • Trailer Tail Lights Do Not Work/No Power On Brown Wire in Wiring Harness 118438 2005 Honda Odyssey
  • You can test the wiring harness, # 118438, to determine if it is functioning properly. First, use a circuit tester, like # 40376 if needed, to test the wires going into the converter from the vehicle. If there is no signal for the running light circuit then the issue is on the vehicle. If the signals are correct going into the converter but incorrect coming out to the 4-Way then the converter is bad and it will need to be replaced. If you determine the issue is on the 2005 Honda Odyssey...

When installing the Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness, part # 118438, on your Odyssey you will want to locate the fuse compartment on the passenger side kick panel, near the glove box.

  • Right/Stop Function Stays on After Installing the Tekonsha T-One # 118438 on a 2007 Honda Odyssey
  • If you installed the Tekonsha T-One # 118438 correctly on your 2007 Honda Odyssey (see attached video) then the right turn/stop function on your trailer should not always be on. There are a few things that could be causing this issue; there is an insufficient ground on the trailer or vehicle, or the harness has been overloaded. If you had a powered converted with a lead running to the battery then you could remove the fuse from the power line to reset it, but you do not have a powered...

  • Troubleshooting Malfunctioning Trailer Wiring Harness on 2009 Honda Odyssey
  • According to your description, it sounds like the converter is shot, allowing output on incorrect circuits. The vast majority of the time, the failure of the converter is caused by a short circuit of some kind in the trailer wiring. Before replacing the trailer wiring harness with a replacement like the Tow Ready # 118438, you'll want to closely examine the wiring on your trailer to find the short. If you don't locate and repair the short, you will continue to blow up wiring harnesses....

  • Trailer Lights Not Working when Connected to 2008 Honda Odyssey
  • Not all trailer wiring harnesses are created equal. By that I mean that if there is a weak ground on the trailer side it could work with some but not all vehicles. Also depending on how many lights the trailer has it is possible that it is overdrawing harness # 118438 on your 2008 Honda Odyssey. This particular harness is rated for 2.1 amps per circuit for brake and turn signal lights and 4.2 amps for the running lights. Also you will want to make sure that the wiring harness white ground...
