  • Custom Fit
  • Trailer Hitch Wiring
  • 4 Flat
  • Powered Converter
  • Tekonsha

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: 5.6 amps per circuit
  • 1-Year limited warranty


Installation

This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located beneath the floor of your rear cargo area. You will need to remove either the spare tire or center storage bin to access the wiring harness. Once you've plugged in the connector, open your fuse box and locate the fuse position indicated in the instructions. Then insert the included 15-amp fuse.


Once installation is complete, the 4-way flat connector will be stowed within the spare tire compartment of 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.

Integrated with my factory wire harness with no issue. Works great. Good quality.




by:

Super easy . etrailer video showed location of my car harness connector 15 minutes and I was done . Great




by:

I purchased this to go with my new trailer hitch. The installation was exceedingly simple as it only involved removing a bit of trim from the trunk area and attaching the box to the factory wiring harness. The only thing I don't like about it the fuse is very close to the harness which means you have to disassemble the same trim to replace a blown fuse.

Fast and easy installation... saved $ by ordering here.

Besides having the best selection of parts and accessories for trailers and the like, their pricing is most likely the lowest you will find. From the point of ordering online to the final destination, my front porch, tracking of the package is always available!




by:
2010 Acura RDX

If the installation of a wiring harness could be any easier, I can't imagine how. I installed this harness on our 2010 RDX, and things went pretty much like clockwork. I made more work for myself than necessary by removing some of the trim pieces on the driver's side. I really just needed to remove the two barbed trim fasteners for the rear sill plate and the two on the passenger-side. Then with the spare tire removed, I was able to partially lift the molded styrofoam block on the passenger side to see the blue-taped trailer connector pigtail. I just cut the blue tape with a pocket knife, and pulled the pigtail out far enough to connect to the new harness; then slipped the connection back under the styrofoam block. Then it was just a matter of peeling the plastic off of the double-stick tape on the control module (black box) and affixing it to the "forward" wall of the spare tire bay. At least on a 2010 RDX, this is truly a 15-20 minute jog.

Finally, I tip my cap to etrailer.com. The ordering process was flawless, the delivery was lightning fast (23 hours), the directions were clear, and the video library was very helpful. Salute!

2011 Acura RDX

This is the second trailer wiring kit I've had to buy for my 2011 RDX. The wiring kit fits perfectly. The connector is right where the directions say it is, and all of the connectors work. However, my first one lasted through 2 U-Haul rentals, then stopped working outside of warranty. I don't know why it failed - the fuse is good and none of the wires were frayed. I'll install this new kit and see how long it lasts.




by:
2007 Acura RDX

The wiring harness was very easy to install, only taking about 10 minutes. The instructions were great and after watching the video, I had confidence that I could do it. Thank you, etrailer.




by:
2012 Honda Accord

I had been researching the best product to fit my needs and this one was it. I selected this product because of the protection the module would provide to my cars electrical system. When I received the product and read the instructions and saw how easy this would be I immediately started and I was done in fifteen minutes. And that was because I wanted to do a custom install for the location of the plug for the trailer. So far so good. I tested it with my trailer and all lights, turn signal and stop lights functioned perfectly. Thank you for making this so easy!!!




by:

First off let me say etrailer is Official! So I purchased a tow hitch 1st it came....... Then a week later I purchased a ball mount, ball, and tow light kit and was upgraded to 3-5 day shipping and received it in 3 days and they made sure I was updated along the way! Couldn't be more Impressed!!! Thank You etrailer you have a customer for life, I will tell anyone I know that is looking for trailer accessories.

Received the wiring harness on time and installed it in my 2007 Acura RDX with no problem with the click of a connector, couldn't be easier. Checked out the connection with a led tester and all worked as planned. The real story will be tomorrow morning when I hook it up to tow my popup camper home from the dealer.




by:
2015 Honda Crosstour

Installed in 2010 Crosstour in about 15 minutes. Easy to do. Directions could be a little better but still easy. Just need to remove the small bin in luggage area on drivers side. Just one bolt to remove (easy to replace). Fuse goes in the “trailer” socket in fuse box. It doesn’t sit down as far as the other fuses, but it seats in the socket fine.




by:

This wiring harness was very easy to install. Took me a total of 8-min. to do the complete install. Go to the [online] to look up the make and model of your vehicle. Highly recommend this product.




by:
2011 Acura RDX

Plug and Go! The etrailer.com site made is very easy for me to locate the exact wiring match for my vehicle (2011 Acura RDX). It arrived faster than I expected, the directions were very clear and easy. I plugged in, hooked up my trailer and hit the road with all lights operating properly.




by:
2010 Honda Accord

Product is similar to my previous installed harness except there was no identification of wiring as on my old harness. Also the picture of the fuse location is of no use.




by:

The wiring harness is easy to install, just plug and go.




by:
2011 Acura RDX

The harness Itself is an excellent product. It was a perfect fit for my 2011 RDX. Could not have been easier to connect.

However detailed instruction on how to remove the styrofoam and trim moldings would have been extremely helpful. The included instructions advise to anchor the harness using the double stick tape on a flat surface beneath the styrofoam trim. No guidance on how to get the styrofoamfoam out of the way.




by:
2010 Honda Accord

Installed on my 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour. This was so so easy, I could not believe it !! Simple Simple Simple !!! One plug to plug in.. Click & it is in stalled ...
The ONLY item t o mention, is the 15amp fuse works- but does not fit all the way down even with the other oem 15amp fuses. The Honda oem fuses are slightly different & fit down INSIDE the holders. The 15amp fuse supplies with this unit plugs into the stabs ok, but will not fit down inside like the others.. I dont think I matters...




by:
2008 Acura RDX

Pops right in, just reach under the foam block to the right of the spare tire. Grommets are available to send the wires through the body, but you'll have to splice the wires back into each other.




by:
2012 Honda Crosstour

I have never bought anything that came with video instructions an a well planned photocard on how to use and install a product installed it myself in about 40 minutes I took my time. Works as expected and would recommend this product to others. Plug and play trailer wiring for later model honda.

2012 Acura RDX

This was purchased for a 2012 Acura RDX and was exactly what I needed. The instructions were simple and thanks to the existing connector in the RDX, you literally just plug and play. I have plugged it into my external lights and all combinations of lights work. It has not been on a long trip yet but that is coming up in a couple of weeks.




by:

I am very happy with your product, all components arrived as ordered, installation was straightforward, after one year of use, not a single problem.




by:
2007 Acura RDX

Installation of this wiring harness took longer than I expected, but only because I didn't read the instructions carefully. If you follow the instruction sheet, it shouldn't take more than 10 minutes to install this. After installation, everything worked perfectly the first time.

  • Trailer Lights Not Working on a 2007 Acura RDX with Wiring Harness # 118500 Installed
    First make sure that both the in line fuse (red) and the mini fuse (blue) are both installed. Otherwise the harness will not work. I know that the instructions say to install the fuse for the Honda Crosstour but it is also possible that it is needed on your RDX. Check the fuse location and determine if the fuse is missing or needs to be replaced. Also, make sure that the adapter you are using is grounded to the vehicle frame in a location that is bare metal. If cannot be grounded to a...

You'll want to make sure you're looking at the portion of the instructions that relate to the RDX, not the Crosstour. The connector for the Tow Ready # 118500 is located in the spare tire compartment below the floor of the cargo area. To access it, you'll need to remove the cargo area floor and the spare tire. The connector will be locate to the right of where the spare tire sits, as shown in the...

  • Is Fuse Installation Required for Both Tow Ready Harnesses # 118500 and # 118569 in Acura RDX
    Yes, both of the Tow Ready trailer wiring harnesses you referenced, parts # 118500 and # 118569, require you to install the supplied fuse in the vehicle's fuse box located in the engine compartment. Please note that these two harnesses are a fit for different model year ranges of the Acura RDX. The # 118569 fits 2013 and 2014 model years while the # 118500 fits 2007 through 2012 vehicles. I have linked an installation video for your reference.

    For your 2010 Acura RDX the Draw Tite hitch part # 75784 is a confirmed fit and will work well for towing a small trailer or carrying a bike rack. I like this option over the Curt as it does not require the use of a stabilizer strap like the Curt does when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well. For trailer wiring you'd then want to use the Tekonsha kit part # 118500 which will give you a 4-way. This brand of trailer...

But if you have taken all those panels out, like in the video I have linked, and are absolutely certain that it is not there then you would need a different harness. For a T-connector harness for your 2013 Crosstour use # C56215.

  • Curt or Tekonsha Wiring Harness for 2008 Acura RDX for Trailer Hitch
    First, you made a good choice with the hitch for your 2008 Acura RDX with the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75563. And I also recommend going with the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness # 56008. The reason we like this one over the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118500 you mentioned is because the Curt has a higher maximum amperage rating, which means this harness will give you the best prevention against potential shorts.

  • Where is Fuse for Trailer Wiring Harness Used on 2008 Acura RDX Installed
    The Tekonsha # 118569 trailer wiring harness you'd looked at isn't a fit for a 2008 Acura RDX, it fits the 2013-2018 model. For your 2008, you'd use either the Curt # 56008 or the Tekonsha # 118500. The 10A fuse included with the Tekonsha # 118500 or the Curt # 56008 installs in the inline fuse holder of the connector that plugs into the vehicle. The additional fuse included with the Tekonsha # 118500 isn't needed for the RDX installation, it's used if you're installing the harness on...

    I spoke with my contact at Draw-Tite regarding the install of the # 75784 Class III receiver on your 2010 Acura RDX. Unfortunately, they doesn't have any specific information about which particular model years the fascia would need to be temporarily moved.

What I recommend is Draw-Tite hitch, # 24852, which is great if you will be using the hitch with an accessory like a bike rack or cargo carrier but can also be used for towing if your vehicle is rated for it. The recommended ball mount is # 3590 and you can use 1-7/8 inch...

    The Draw-Tite Class III trailer hitch you mentioned, part # 75784 would be a good choice, but the Curt Class III, # C13130 is the most affordably priced hitch option we offer for your 2014 Acura RDX. The Curt hitch has a slightly higher capacity (which would be limited by the vehicle's towing capacity if it's less than that of the hitch.)
