Tekonsha Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - 118461

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.


Features:

  • 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
    • Locate connection point in rear cargo area
    • Plug in connector
  • 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


Specs:

  • Maximum amperage:
    • Stop/turn lights: 2.1 amps per circuit
    • Tail lights: 4.2 amps per circuit
  • 1-Year limited warranty


Installation

This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located in your rear cargo area, either behind the driver's-side tail light assembly or in the spare tire compartment. You will need to remove paneling to access this harness.


Once installation is complete, the 4-way flat connector will be stowed in an out-of-the-way location within your 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 - 2005 Subaru Outback Wagon

Today on our 2005 Subaru Outback Wagon, well be installing the Tow Ready T-One Connector, part number 118461. Before we begin the installation, well need to go ahead and locate the manufacturers tow port on the driver side. Well start by removing the interior trim panels, first the access door on the driver side, then the center spare tire cover. Next well remove the carpeting on the driver side porter panel. Now with those removed, we can go ahead and remove the interior trays, the center and driver side. With those removed, we can now just see part of the manufacturers tow port wire hanging under the driver side interior quarter panel.

Well need to go and reach under the interior quarter panel and pull the plug free as it will be taped to the wire. Now that we have the connector pulled out to where we can access it, well go ahead and take the new Tow Ready T-One Connector and plug in line with the manufacturers wiring. As you can see, they are matching connectors. Next well need to mount the convertor box. Well go ahead and tuck the wiring inside the interior quarter panel, remove the two-way adhesive from the convertor box and adhere it to a clean, flat surface.

With that done, well start reinstalling the interior trim components. Next well go ahead and start routing the wire into the center tire well. With our wiring routed, now well go ahead and show you how to use your new four-pole connector. Simply take our four-pole and route it down to the hitch or accessory. Be careful and stay away from the latch, just closing the wire in the latch can harm it.

However, the weather stripping is thick enough that wont harm the wires, so well simply close the rear cargo door on it. Then once youre finished using our new four-pole connector, well roll it up and store it into the rear cargo tray. And that does it for the install of our Tow Ready T-One Connector, part number 118461 on our 2005 Subaru Outback Wagon.

Product arrived in good time and looks well constructed for the $. In my particular application, I had great difficulty getting the fuse block and black electrical module to sit neatly where it made the most sense as to the logical routing of the wire loom and cables. After attempting to route 4 different ways, I settled on stuffing the fuse block and electrical module into the inner body panel well beneath the drivers side tail light. I believe this part is applicable to several Subaru models and therefore, the length and spacing of the cable where the fuse block and electrical module are along the length of the wiring was not the greatest for my particular vehicle, a 2009 Outback wagon. Not bad, just could not route where I had hoped to for the neatest result. 399187

One of the easiest to install automotive electrical accessories I've ever seen. It took more time to empty the Subaru Forester's trunk area of shopping bags, snow shovel, etc. than it did to make the actual installation. The Subaru wiring connector was not too difficult to find. It was a matter of running my hand along the wiring harness found in the spare tire well until I felt a pronounced lump under the tape. On this particular car, the connector was in the right rear corner of the tire well. 58489


Comments

I was a little dubious about closing the hatchback on the cable every time. However, after two seasons of using a trailer for camping trips and hauling things, Ive stopped worrying about it. I still have to make sure that the cable is in the right position before I close the lid not in the latch area and positioned so that there is just enough slack in the line to the trailer. Most of the time I have something in the trunk area that I can set on the cable to keep it in position while I close the lid.

Thanks for the reply. I am very happy to hear that you are pleased with your Tow Ready T-One wiring Harness. If you would like there are several bracket options that will allow you to mount your 4-way directly your hitch or vehicle. I have included links to a could of examples below for you. If you would like a no-drill option you can use the # TM75475
TrailerMate No-Drill Bracket for 4-, 5-, 6-, or 7-Way Trailer Connector Mounting Bracket - Short
$13.25
in conjunction with the # 18144
Mounting Bracket 4-Pole Flat
$8.81
to establish a 4-way mounting bracket on your hitch. For your Subaru you could see if there is a grommet below the spare tire compartment that you could slice and run your trailer wiring though. Then you can use something like the RTV 598 Silicone Gasket Maker # LT37467
Loctite RTV 598 High-Performance Silicone Gasket Maker - Black - 2.7-Fl Oz Tube
$6.95
to seal up the grommet.

My friend Ann ordered this kit for me, everything is top notch, thank you. However, the problem I have has to do with my Subaru Legacy sedan, I have tried everything to find the vehicle's plug in to install the wiring harness, there isn't one that I can find. I have been in my past a VW mechanic for many years, so unless old age is confusing me, I wonder if you might have a plan. I was originally going to wire the harness in, then I saw how nice it is and thought what a great idea, just plug it in. So, for now I am still trying to find the plug in, they have it for the wagons but not for my 2006 sedan..so far.Thank you 657041


Comments

The wiring harness you purchased is a fit for the Legacy wagon model only, not the sedan. The sedan does not have the connector. For your vehicle, youd need part C59236 which would need to be hardwired into place.

2009 Subaru Outback PZEV: Install video helped a lot, made everything easy. Wish it could show you how to attach it to the hitch without having to take it out of the car and shut the door on it all the time. 594192


Comments

The manufacturer specifically designed the harness so the connector would be deployed from the interior of the vehicle when needed. This is typically done on small SUVs and passenger vehicles that arent usually used for towing. Installing it in this manner keeps the connector protected from damage when its not being used. The rear hatch of your vehicle has weatherstipping thats thick enough that the wire for the trailer connector wont be damaged as long as you avoid the latch area. I have the wiring harness on my van installed this way, and its still working great after 5 years.

Well constructed product, seems well made, but haven't had a chance to use it yet. The OEM installation instructions that came with the product were garbage. English, french and spanish were all stuffed on one side of an 8.5 x 11 page, and the one TINY photo provided for my car model didn't even come close to depicting reality... at least the reality that is my car. Throw the instructions out and watch the videos on the etrailer website and it will help immensely. I was disappointed though that the videos showed their installed product came with double sided tape to secure it, but the one i purchased has a bolt hole at the top and a zip tie, but no bolt or screw. The video and the instructions said nothing about where the product was supposed to zip tied to, or whether it should be zip tied or bolted down. The video and instructions should be updated to regard the actual product being sold. Had to knock off one of the stars. Everything else about the experience was fantastic. 529550

The product is awesome and easy to install. However the instructions for the location of the plug are no good for legacy owners. Our plug is on the driver side quarter panel. Not in the spare tire or the passenger side like the instructions say. Other than that it’s awesome. Find the plug. Plug it in, run the wire where you want it. Plug your trailer in. After finding the correct location it would only take you 5 minutes to install and hide wires. 524612

Sorry, no pictures. I like the hitch and harness so far, no problems with towing my utility trailer. The only thing I might mention is that the harness outside of the car is rather long (2 feet longer then what I need), but that's not a problem as I just wrap the excess around the hitch frame, and save it for if I ever need it longer for some reason. There wasn't room inside the car under the mat for the excess length. I still remember how easy it was to install the hitch, just bolted up the the existing bolt holes in the cars frame.

Shipping - The hitch, ball mount-kit, wiring harness, and brush all arrived quickly in a single, heavy-duty cardboard box. The packaging was excellent! There had to have been a hundred heavy-duty staples used to secure everything. Installation - The video and paper instructions were spot-on and made the install much more straight forward. For two non-mechanics, it took us about 2 hours from the time we pulled the car into the garage until all the tools were put away to install the hitch, wiring harness, and mount the balls on the sleeves. We did not lift the car might have made it a little easier but totally doable. The only actual difficulty we had was pulling the rubber muffler mounts off. A little lubrication helps. Reinstalling them is easier. 450719

Arrived as described and plugged in easily; but that's the end of the good news. Didn't work at all the first time I tried to use it. Voltmeter indicates that power comes out of the car, fuse was fine, but no power reached the flat 4 connector. I didn't test until over 30 days past arrival, so etrailer won't replace the plug. I had to pay to send it for a warranty return, it's been there for 5 days now, and is currently somewhere in the warehouse waiting to be dealt with. After long waits on hold no specific estimate on timing for return. I'm out return shipping, original cost, and either can't use my trailer or have to buy another harness. Summary: Bad product out of box, OK maybe just a fluke. etrailer customer service not great. Annoyed customer. 385216

  • Recommended 4-Way Flat Connector for a 1999 Subaru Legacy Outback Wagon
  • If your 1999 Subaru Legacy Outback Wagon came with the factory tow package then you will need the Tekonsha T-One # 118461 which simply plugs into the plug that you found at the rear of your Outback Wagon. I have attached a sample installation video you can reference. If you will be using this for towing but you do not have a trailer hitch yet then I recommend going with the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 36234. This is a Class II receiver with a 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver opening...

  • Where is the Wiring Harness Connector for Installing Trailer Wiring in a 2007 Subaru Legacy
  • On the 2007 Legacy Outback Wagon the wiring harness used to install the # 118461 is sometimes hard to find. For some reason it gets routed differently and can be in the spare tire well, up along the back near the bottom of the rear seat or under the rear panel nearest the hatch. I spoke to our installation technician and he said that he removes all of the panels and follows the vehicle wiring harness along until he comes across the connector. It is there you just have to search for it. Our...

  • What is Included with Curt Trailer Hitch 12038 for a 2008 Subaru Forester

  • Trailer Wiring Connection Point for a 2005 Subaru Outback Wagon LL Bean Edition
  • The connection point for trailer wiring on a 2005 Subaru Outback Wagon is usually located behind the paneling on the passenger side, directly below the tail light. I have included a video and the installation details for a similar harness that also fits your vehicle (# 118461). It can also be located on the drivers side, behind the side panel a few feet toward the front of the vehicle.

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring Harness for a 08 Subaru Outback and 17 VW Alltrack

For your 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack, I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness part # 118730. Both of the above harnesses are almost entirely plug and play.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2005 Subaru Legacy GT Wagon

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendations for a 2009 Subaru Outback

  • Trailer Wiring Plug Location on a 1997 Subaru Legacy Wagon GT
  • If your 1997 Subaru Legacy Wagon GT is not the Outback version, then you will not actually have a plug-in point for a trailer wiring harness. Non-Outback versions of the wagon must hard wire to install a 4-Way trailer connector, using a kit like part # 119179KIT. To hard wire the kit, you would use the included circuit tester to determine which wire carries each function behind your vehicle tail lights. You will also need to run a power wire to the positive terminal on the vehicle...

  • Trailer Hitch and Towing Accessories Recommendations for 2001 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • The Draw-Tite # 36284 would be an excellent choice as long as your Outback Wagon isn't a Sport model. The best ball mount will depend on the coupler height of the trailer you're planning on using. I'll link you to an FAQ article that shows how to determine what rise/drop ball mount you'll need. Measure the distance from the inside top of the receiver tube to the ground. Then jack the trailer up so it's level, and measure the distance from the underside of the coupler to the ground.

Either hitch would fit your 2005 Subaru Forester. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. Then you will need to add a properly sized ball and the wiring. Those items are not included with the hitch. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch ball use # 19258. For trailer wiring...

  • Recommended Class II Trailer Hitch for Towing Small Utility Trailer w/ 2008 Subaru Forester
  • The Curt Class II trailer hitch you referenced, part # C12038 has a 3500 lb towing/350 lb tongue weight capacity. If you'll only be using the hitch for towing a trailer, it should work just fine for you. However, if you're wanting to use the hitch as an attachment point for other hitch mounted accessories like a cargo carrier or a bike rack, it wouldn't be the best choice. Curt's warranty requirement state that all non-trailer loads need to use a stabilizing strap, like part # 18050. The...
