Installation

This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located behind the driver's-side interior trim panel in your rear cargo area. Once you've plugged in the T-connector, open your fuse box and locate the fuse positions indicated in the instructions. Then insert the included fuses.


Once installation is complete, the 4-way flat connector can be stored in an out of the way area of the cargo area of your vehicle when not in use.


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.


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 Tekonsha Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - Trailer Hitch Wiring - 118521 Review

Today we're going to review part number 118521. This is the Tow Ready T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with the 4-way flat trailer connector. This part is a custom-fit part number. It is designed to fit the Honda Odyssey, starting in 2011. It does come with everything showing here on the table. It comes with the harness itself. It comes with this black box power module. It has the 3 fuses.

There's 2 7.5 amp fuses and one 10 amp fuse, some cable ties to take up any excess cable, and a nice set of detail instructions with some nice pictures. Now this will provide a 4-way flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights. It does connect quickly and easily. You just use this plug-ins here. Use the plug in T-connectors, and there's no cutting or splicing of wires. Basically your connection point is from the rear cargo area. It also includes this ModuLite to ensure that your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailer.

It is a powered module which connects directly to the battery to overload your vehicle's electrical system. You just basically plug this right into here to your harness. On the 4-way, it has a length of wire to run to the back. That wire is a 16-gauge bonded wire. On the 4-way itself, you can see it includes this attached dust cap. When you're not using the 4-way, just put your dust cap on.

It protects it from any damage and from the elements. A few specs on this wiring harness. The maximum amperage on the stop and turn light circuit is 4.2 amps per circuit. On the tail lights circuit, it's 7.5 amps per circuit. Again, briefly how this installs, what you would do is go to the rear here of your vehicle. By the rear seat on the driver's side, there's a panel that you remove on the side there. You'll have access to the rear fuse box. What you want to do is these will plug in.

You'll see the connecting points. Again, the instructions will show you where, but this will plug in to where the fuse box is. What you want to do is you'll take this grey plug and that's what we'll plug your module right into there. Then there's a piece of double-faced tape. You peel this off and you want to attach this so it doesn't bounce around. You want to get that attached to the vehicle. Once that's all installed, you'll take this white wire that runs out of the grey connector and you'll attach this to a good, clean ground on the vehicle. Again, these cable ties are included if you need to take up any slack in the cable. Then what you want to do, the last thing you need to do is, in that rear fuse box, it tells you what the location points are for where you're going to plug in these fuses. You'll plug in the 2 7.5 amp fuses and the 1 10 amp fuse also in that fuse box. Once that's all connected, close it all up, and you'll be ready to just run this out the back when you're going to tow. When you're not, you can store it inside the vehicle. That should do it for the review on part number 118521, the Tow Ready T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with the 4-way flat trailer connector. .

Great product and worked perfectly. A little hard to install because of the vehicle configuration and space, especially for my big hands and arms. The YouTube mechanic must have been an elf. Also, instructions and YouTube gloss over the grounding wire attachment and that proved to be the hardest task trying to reach behind the trim panel with a wrench. Great product. Just know installation probably won't be quite as fast an easy as the I instructions and videos make it seem. 567704

All pretty easy but the video directions dont share that you need to add the fuses to the wiring panel. The paper directions are worthless. I was convinced this product was defective until a mechanic friend helped me figure out the fuses 568862


Comments

The video for the installation of this wiring harness on a 2016 Odyssey shows the installation of the fuses near the end of the video at the 5:15 mark. This is also addressed in the installation instructions in Step 9 and the fuse locations are shown in Figure E. Ive linked the install video below.

This was the easiest wiring harness installation I have ever completed. Just follow etrailer's Utube video and you can't go wrong. I completed the installation in less than 20 minutes and everything worked correctly the first time. I would recommend this installation to even novices with tools. 187071

Well it installed fine but the controller for the lights seems to have an issue at night when the car's lights are on. It blinks both sides when using the blinker and the headlights are on. Luckily I haven't had to drive much at night so I didn't even figure out there was a problem for a few months. To be clear the blinker works fine when the headlights are not on. 411141

The product worked as advertised, but the installation did not. I have a 2014 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite. This model has the HondaVac, a 12 volt power plug, and a subwoofer on the panel that must be removed to follow the instructions. Unfortunately, the video and paper instructions show a base model and do not explain how to remove these optional items. I'm fairly mechanical and could not figure out how to remove them without damaging something. I only tow once or twice per year, so I decided on a temporary solution where I plug in the harness and ground it to one of the threshold plate cargo net hooks. Speaking of those, I found it almost impossible not to mar the plastic, even with a washcloth between them and the wrench. You may want to try a strap wrench or rubber padded wrench. I towed a u-haul cargo trailer with this setup for three hours on a mix of country, subdivision, and interstate roads with no issues. My only concern was the quality of the grounding connection, but the bolt and grounding tab appear to touch the frame. 111054

I just got off the phone with my contact at Tow Ready. I will put him in touch with you to get the harness straightened out.

No change after a year. My temporary solution remains sufficient for my once a year towing needs. If someone owns an Odyssey with the HondaVac and wants a clean trailer hitch and lighting install, I recommend getting it done through your Honda dealer. If you have a lower trim level without the HondaVac this kit is a cheaper DIY alternative.

I recently purchased a trailer wiring harness for my Honda Odyssey. I must say I have never been more pleased in an internet transaction. The order process was simple and straightforward, the part was delivered promptly, it was exactly as described, and the video on the website made installing it a snap. I have installed trailer lights on my vehicles before where I had to tear up the floorboards and run wires clear up to the battery, etc. I had this one installed in 15 minutes tops with a screwdriver and one socket. Excellent! 135549


Comments

I am still well pleased with my wiring kit after a year. It has continued to work flawlessly. When I get a new vehicle and require another harness I will certainly buy from you guys again.

Background: I own a 2014 Honda Odyssey and installed a Honda factory hitch instead of an aftermarket one for 2 main reasons. 1. The receiver is higher from the ground than most aftermarket hitches. This was important to me after reading reviews from people towing heavy loads with their Odyssey complaining about the ball mount being too close to the ground. 2. Most of the hitch is hidden behind the bumper cover versus being totally exposed going under the bumper cover; like on my other Hondas. I would have ordered the Honda wiring harness for its plug and play properties, but being only 4 pole (I needed 5 pole), it still would have needed adapting and it was considerably more expensive. This product exceeded my expectations for several reasons. 1. It was plug and play just like the factory harness. It was less than half the price of OEM. 3. The video for installation was done exceedingly well. 4. The spare white connector, that was not used in the video, was the perfect place to connect the extra wire I needed to operate the solenoid for the surge brakes on my trailer. (no need to cut and splice). Highly recommend this harness especially if needing to add an extra wire to be energized when the backup lights come on. 272955

Great hitch! Just installed it this morning and it went beautifully! I am impressed with the quality of the hitch and how easy it was to install even laying on my back in the driveway and I'm 73, have terrible arthritis and a heart condition!!! And the inclusion of the "Fish" was so welcome as I figured I'd screw that up if given half a chance and it went so smoothly I was suuuure I had made a mistake somewhere as I usually do!! This will help me achieve my dream of towing my Harley Trike to Natchez Trace and just having, not only a great, but extremely spiritual experience. So thanks and I would recommend you guys to anyone 716003

This Tekonsha T-one harness with control module really works great, is super easy to install and you can't beat the price at etrailer. But because of a problem I had with water ingress into the control box, I wanted to share with potential buyers a different mounting solution that will avoid what happened to me. I initially installed one of these 3 years ago in our 2013 Odyssey along with a new vehicle side connector. It worked great until last fall when our trailer lights started doing strange things. Thinking this was a ground fault I disassembled the connector and cleaned all the contacts, but it didn't solve the problem. Then I installed a brand new connector, but I still had the same problem. Then I retraced the T-one harness and found the control module full of water and the circuit board fried of course. I installed it in a way that it was hanging down into the cavity behind the interior panel (much like another customer here shows it in his photos). Somehow, water was able to find it's way in it. Now I installed a new Tekonsha T-one harness and everything is working great again, but I chose a different location for the control box. I used double sided tape to glue it onto the upper compartment of the interior panel. This way it will hopefully not be exposed to any water that might drip down. It is also angled slightly upward, so that any moisture should drip off instead of running into it. The harness is long enough to allow for this with the exception of the ground cable. But a 12" extension will do the trick. I hope the photos are clear enough to show all this. Hopefully someone finds this information useful. 711860

This wiring harness is perfectly match for the vehicle with a plug and play feature. The hardest install portion is getting access to the area for routing. I must admit this is the second time I purchased this harness, because after about 4 years the converter box stopped converting. By purchasing this set again I was able to unplug the the bad converter and insert the new one. If i could have bought just the converter I would have done so but could not find a source for the individual component.. 683407

My husband and out good friend installed this onto our 2016 Honda Odyssey. Instructions stated it would take 2 hours and it was spot on. The guys said it was a very easy install. They only ran into 1 pesky bolt that took a while to cooperate. We are using this product for the purposes of hauling extra items on our trek across the United States as we make a big move. So far the product has held up great! We have 2 large filled suitcases, a large plastic tote filled, and another box filled on the cargo rack which we purchased separately. We have had no issues with rattling or inability to handle our load. We chose expedited shipping and it arrived when it said it would and the box was very well handled. I would definitely purchase through the company again. 661733

The customer service was great! Both Teresa J and Odelia were very kind and helpful. They seemed to to be in good spirits and enjoy their jobs. They helped me with my order and my concerns. The draw tite hitch was easy to put on. You will need help lifting it in place since it is heavy. The video on how to install it on a 2012 Honda Odyssey was very helpful although I did need to unscrew 3 additional screws holding the bottom cover to the mud flap. I was a little concerned to find that the hitch had a few scratches and scrapes on a corner. I called and Odelia had advised me that it is not uncommon since the products arrive to their location unpackaged and piled on one another. I decided to keep it and just paint the corner with rustolium spray paint. Overall the product looks good and seems to be of good quality. The wiring harness was easy to put on. The video was spot on. The videos for both products are extremely helpful. 657444

"Compatible with 5-pole, 6-pole and 7-pole adapters (sold separately)". Not exactly. The module that comes with this kit seems intended to multiplex the signal and brake lights to work for trailers within only 2 lights (i.e. the same lights are used for signal and tail lights). The 3rd wire on my harness (for tail/brake) does not receive power when the brakes are pressed. However the left and right signal do receive constant power. This is fine if you are towing a simple trailer with only 2 lights. However, I tried to make this work with a 7 pin adapter for an RV, which has separate signal and tail lights. At this point, I'm going to have to scrap the module and splice some relays into the fuse box connector to make it behave how I need it to. 619146

It's cross tube will be visible under the rear bumper, but if that cosmetic difference is not critical, go for the # 75270 for the easier install. A video is linked for...

  • Towing Capacity of Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 76025 With 2014 Honda Odyssey
  • You can tow a trailer with your 2014 Honda Odyssey and Draw-Tite hitch # 76025, but the total loaded trailer capacity of your Odyssey is something that depends on variables that you will need to take a look at in your owner's manual. For example, the most a loaded trailer could weigh is 3,350 lbs if your Odyssey has a transmission cooler such as # D13503, and is loaded with three 150 lb occupants that each have 15 lbs of cargo. Along with the aforementioned transmission cooler you also...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch, Wiring, and Transmission Cooler for 2015 Honda Odyssey
  • Starting with the trailer hitch for your 2015 Honda Odyssey I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III # 75270 because of its robust capacities (4,500 pounds towing and 675 pounds of tongue weight) indicating a stronger unit along with its simple installation process that just requires lining up the hitch to existing holes in the Odyssey's frame. I have attached an installation video on the 2015 Odyssey that you can use for reference. Then for trailer wiring the Tekonsha T-One # 118521...

  • Brake Controller Installation On A 2015 Honda Odyssey
  • You absolute can install a brake controller in a 2015 Honda Odyssey, but it will involve splicing. This is not difficult at all, so I don't know why your installer wasn't willing. We do this all the time and create videos so you can do it at home if you wish. I recommend using the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195 because it is an easy to use and understand brake controller, but you can use any brake controller if you have a different preference. Then you will use the Universal Installation...

  • Parts Needed to Tow Pop Up Camper with 2016 Honda Odyssey
  • The towing parts that you mentioned for the 2015 Honda Odyssey will indeed also fit and work great on your 2016 model Odyssey. Starting with the trailer hitch, the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Receiver Hitch # 75270 is a great choice. This Class III hitch will use existing holes in the vehicle's frame for a no-drill installation and will provide you with a 2 inch receiver that has a 4,500 pound towing weight capacity. Just note that you will also want to verify the Odyssey's capacity...

  • What Do I Need To Tow 1,800 lb Pop Up Camper With 2014 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. Some models of the Odyssey have plastic panel covering the driver side frame. Remove this panel to install the hitch and leave the panel off or trim it to fit...

  • Does the Exhaust System Need to be Removed to Install Draw-Tite # 75270 on a 2016 Honda Odyssey
  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75270 that you referenced, which is a confirmed fit for your 2016 Honda Odyssey, does not require the removal of the exhaust system. It does require that the exhaust be disconnected from the rubber hanger on the passenger side of the vehicle for installation though (see attached picture). This is reinstalled after the hitch receiver is installed. You can check out the installation process in the attached video. The only thing that might need...

  • Recommended Towing Set Up for 2017 Honda Odyssey Towing 2018 Airstream Sport 16
  • I took a look at the owner's manual of your 2017 Honda Odyssey and it mentions that with two passengers you can tow up to 3,500 lbs, which from my research looked to be the GVWR - or Gross Vehicle Weight Rating - of the 2018 Airstream Sport 16. With that in mind there are a number of components you will need, starting with a hitch. I recommend the Draw-Tite # 75270 for your Odyssey; it is a Class III hitch with a 2 inch receiver and 5,000 lb towing capacity which is more than enough...

I attached an install video for you to check out as well. For trailer wiring you'd then want the # 118521 which is a confirmed fit as well and is the most reliable option we have.

  • Curt Trailer Wiring Harness Does Not have Power on a 2016 Honda Odyssey
  • There are a couple of things to check with the installation of Curt trailer wiring harness # C56378 on your 2016 Honda Odyssey. First, make sure the fuse is installed in the red power wire. If it is installed make sure that the fuse is good and replace if needed. Also make sure that the white ground wire is attached to a bare metal surface. Next check that the second fuse is installed in the proper location and that it is not blown and move/replace if needed. According to the instructions:...

  • Brake Controller, Hitch and Ball Mount Recommendation for 2017 Honda Odyssey
  • For your 2017 Honda Odyssey the Draw Tite hitch part # 76025 is a great option to tow with. It has a concealed crosstube too so that it's not overly visible. You will need to start with a 4-way (if you do not have one). For that you would want the # 118521. From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install the brake controller. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and 7-Way Adapter part # ETBC7. I attached installation instructions...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Honda Odyssey
  • All of the hitches for your 2014 Honda Odyssey will require some minor rear fascia trimming to install. My favorite hitch to recommend though is the Draw Tite part # 76025 as it only has the hitch tube that hangs below the rear bumper. This makes it quite a bit less visible than the other available hitches. The install is pretty basic for a mechanic which means that any local mechanic to you would have no problem installing it. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. For...

  • Hitch and Wiring Harness Installation in 2016 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite
  • All of the hitches offered for the 2016 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite, shown on the linked page, will install as close to the bottom of the bumper cover as possible. The Odyssey and similar vehicles like the Toyota Sienna have a low-slung rear end without a lot of extra clearance so all hitches designed for this vehicle need to have a fairly snug fit under the bumper. Among the 2-inch options, there are hitches that have different installation processes. Draw-Tite # 75270 may require some...

  • Wiring Harness and Trailer Hitch for 2014 Honda Odyssey
  • Thanks for all the information, and there are four hitches from our manufacturers that fit both a 2003 Honda Odyssey and 2014 Honda Odyssey, but none of them - the Draw-Tite # 75270 and # 36417 or Curt # C13068 or # C12031, have any type of affiliation I could find with the numbers you provided and the manufacturers I contacted were unable to find any either. If it is an OEM part you may just be better off getting a brand-new hitch from the choices above as it could end up being more cost-effective...

  • Weight Distribution and Brake Controller for 2014 Honda Odyssey Towing 2017 R-Pod
  • Use of a weight distribution hitch (WDH) is recommend whenever a trailer weighs more than half the curb weight of the tow vehicle. Since your Odyssey's curb weight is about 4400-lbs you should definitely use a WDH to tow your R-Pod 178. Do note this trailer's GVWR, (gross vehicle weight rating, the most it can ever weigh when loaded) is 3750-lbs. The R-Pod's loaded tongue weight is going to be right around 450-lbs so a good WD system to use is the Equal-i-zer # EQ37060ET which not only...

That is with 2 occupants that weigh 150 lbs each and if the ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid) cooler is equipped. The towing capacity changes as more people fill the vehicle from front to back and each person weighing 150 lbs, with 15 lbs of cargo: 2 - 3,500 lbs 3 - 3,350 lbs 4 - 3,200 lbs 5 - 3,050 lbs 6 - 2,900 lbs 7 - 1,450 lbs 8 - Towing...

You would need to start with a 4-way if you don't have one already. For that you would need the part # 118521. From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install the brake controller. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and 7-Way Adapter part # ETBC7.

The newer design of this hitch helps make this hitch one of the more concealed hitches on the market. If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900.

  • Transferring a Trailer Hitch From a 2008 Honda Odyssey to a 2012 Honda Odysssey.
  • Both Draw-Tite Trailer Hitches, part # 75270 and # 36417, are compatible with the 2012 Honda Odyssey. I recommend checking the bolts and bolt holes for wear prior to transferring to the 2012, and ensuring that there isn't any damage, cracks or severe rust on the hitch. For a wiring harness, I recommend Curt's T-Connector, part # C56378. This installs into the existing wiring in your taillights to quickly add a 4-pole connector. I've included a video of the Tow Ready kit, part # 118521...

This is a plate-fin cooler with furnace-brazed aluminum construction and 3/4 inch wide turbulator plates for more efficient cooling.

When we installed both hitches on a 2013 Odyssey, we found that the Curt # C13068 had about a 1/2 inch greater ground clearance (12-1/2 inches) versus 12 inches for the Draw-Tite # 75270 models. The receiver of the Draw-Tite hitches are recessed a bit more under the vehicle, but neither of the hitches will extend past the bumper, and therefore...
