Tekonsha Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - 118573

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. Powered ModuLite reduces strain on wiring system.

    • Run hot lead to car battery

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 behind the driver's-side and passenger's-side tail lights. You will have to remove the tail light assemblies to access this harness.


T-One Connection Location Points Behind Tail Lights

Once you've plugged in the T-connector, run the hot lead up to your car battery. Connect the lead to the included fuse holder, and then connect the fuse holder to the positive terminal on your battery and insert the provided fuse.


Once installation is complete, the 4-way flat connector will be stowed within your trunk.


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 - 118573 Review

Today we are going to be taking a look at Part Number 118573. This is the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with the 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector. This product is going to fit certain years and models of the Subaru Impreza. It is going to provide the 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights. It is compatible with 5-Pole, 6-Pole and 7-Pole adapters. Your adapters are sold separately and it is going to come with a dust cap for the 4-Way Flat Connector.

That you can cover up and protect the connection points when the plug is not being used. One of the things I like about this system is that the dust cap is actually tethered and built into the housing on the plug, unlike some other systems that have a loop that go around the plug. Sometimes that can wear out. It can get loose. It can break and you can lose it. With it built into the housing, you don't have to worry about misplacing or losing the cap for your 4-way flat connector. It's also going to include the module light.

It is going to ensure that your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailer's. The powered module is going to connect directly to the vehicle battery through the wiring to avoid overloading the vehicle's electrical system. Another benefit of a system like this is that it is designed to connect quickly and easily. You don't have to worry about cutting or splicing the wires on your vehicle. Only one cut needs to be made.

That's going to be the cut here on the fuse holder. You can see right here that it's a complete loop. You will just cut that right in the middle because we are going to get a ring terminal attached to one end and a butt connector attached to the other. What you will need to do is locate your connection points at the back of the vehicle behind the tail lights. You are going to take your connectors and you are going to plug them in. Now the plugs on the connector are going to match up perfectly with the plugs on the vehicle.

The yellow and brown wire side, that is going to go to the driver's side of the vehicle. The green and red wire side, that is going to go to the passenger side of the vehicle. Once you have those connected, you will make a ground connection. That is going to white wire with the ring terminal attached to it and you will make your ground with the included self tapping screw. Just make sure to connect it to a nice clean metal surface. The next step is going to be to run the hot lead to the vehicle battery. Your hot lead is going to be the red wire coming out of the module light converter box. That's going to get connected to the bundle of black wire. They give you plenty of wiring. That way you can extend it all the way up to the vehicle battery. These two are going to get connected with one of the included butt connectors. The other end of the black wire is going to get connected to one half of the fuse holder with a butt connector and then the other half of the fuse holder is going to get the ring terminal attached to it and that's going to get connected to the positive post on the vehicle batter. It does come with a 10 amp fuse and installs right here in the fuse holder and it has the fuse cap to protect the fuse inside of the holder. You are also going to get some zip ties to secure any excess or slacking or wiring. You are going to get double-sided adhesive tape. That way you can mount the converter box in a nice, clean out of the way area and it's going to come with detailed instructions. It's going to walk you through the installation process step by step. The maximum amperage for the stop and turn lights is going to be 2.1 amps per circuit. For the tail lights, we are looking at 5.6 amps per circuit. It's also recommended that you use a small amount of di-electric grease on all your electrical connections, like the plugs on the vehicle and the 4-pole connector itself. That is going to help prevent corrosion. That is going to do it for today's look at Part Number 118573.

Took about two hours to install after making sure to realign the paneling properly. Hardest part is picking a spot to drill through your floor. Worked the first time! Very clear instructions! Would recommend for anyone with a 2012 Impreza wagon! 433196


Comments

After a year of using this wiring harness I have zero complaints! Still working great as of this week. Every brake light and turn signal check I have done this year has been successful. I’ve used my trailer a few dozen times and had no problems at all! Glad to have a product that is trustworthy and robust.

I've installed and used this item. It works just like it should. Installation was a bit tricky but I figured it out. I would have given it 5 stars but downgraded only due to instructions being lacking somewhat. The instructions that came with it were missing steps as it became obvious when I tried to follow them. It just took a bit of thinking to figure out what really had to happen. Where the connectors had to go was obvious, how to run the wiring was not. And the wiring that had to be outside the car in order to get the wiring from the left to the right tail light was tricky. It was probably, for me, the receiver I had already installed that made it complicated but it worked out in the end. In the instructions it mentions that you have the option to run the hot wire (power supply) to the battery terminal either under the car (outside the passenger compartment) or inside and then through (I suppose) the firewall to the battery terminal. I did neither. I really came to the conclusion that there was no possible way to run the wire under the car without having the wire where it was going to be damaged just from normal driving so I didn't do that. Then, for running the wire through the passenger compartment I wasn't going to just blindly drill though the firewall to get to the battery terminal. What I did do was to run the wire (and there was only one, I had their ground wire bolted to the body in the hatch area) under the seat and then brought it to the center console under the floor mats, attached a cigarette lighter jack to it that included a 10 amp fuse and then used the power outlet in the center console for power (which also was independently fused for 10 amps). So, what I can do is simply pull the plug there when not in use as I was a little concerned there would be a residual power draw when the car was off if I connected directly to the battery. And by connecting to the power jack the power is automatically switched anyway. All is good, the wiring to the center console is mostly hidden. 399439

the product is really well done if you are not familliar with electricity. the only issue is that they are mentionning that the cord can be store in the trunk but the kit do not allow you to that. the trailer connector and cable should stay outside and be fixed to the hitch with ty-rap. To be able to store the cable in the trunk you have to remove a plug in the trunk and find a trycky way to protect water from enteting in the trunk. The cable will also become a little bit short to connect to with the trailer connector. So i had to modified all the set up and cut the wire quick connector to do an inside installation without any component abd connection outside the car 445802

Wiring harness was not too difficult to install. I found the videos available from etrailer helpful. I found that it has functioned well after 1 year. Would recommend small cable ties or electrical tape to ensure the harness is well secured to the frame or other sturdy support to avoid loosening of the harness. Happy with my purchase. 513449

This worked perfectly on my 2012 Subaru Impreza. Installation was a little more difficult than I expected. The part that gave me some trouble was running the wire from the harness in the rear to the battery in the front. The instructions are pretty vague about how to do that. I was able to run the wire through the frame of the car using a wire pulling tape and reel (normally used for pulling wires through walls in a home). Otherwise, installation went smoothly and the harness has worked perfectly with my trailer. 467622

The product itself is excellent. The harness is wired up and works very well. My only recommendation would be to have better instructions on where to run the ground wire in the Subaru. It was not clear from the instructions/ drawings. I did call technical help, they suggested going under the car, which I did, but it took time to sort it out. If that had been in the instruction, it would have been perfect. Instead, my experience was just good. 255390

Easy install, extra pair of hands makes sliding/holding in place considerably easier than alone... wiring harness is well worth the price, super easy, don't know why they tell you to drop exhaust or run wires under car to battery...

The product worked perfectly and was relatively painless to install. I have to add that the customer service support techs (Bill E. in particular) went above and beyond in helping me get it sorted out as the web wizard recommended a different (generic) kit which didn't work with my Impreza Sport. After several emails going back and forth to diagnose the problem, Bill finally was able to get me this kit (at no extra charge) in exchange for the incorrect kit that I ordered. During the whole process he was very courteous and helpful. I Highly Recommend etrailer.com! 209351

  • Some of the same trailer hitch receivers for the 2014 Subaru Impreza fit the 2015 models. It depends on the specific model of Impreza because there was a larger vareity in 2014. For your Sport Limited I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe, part # DT24959. It's a Class I, 1-1/4 inch hitch confirmed to fit.

  • Is Bumper Trimming Required to Install Curt Trailer Hitch C11286 on a 2013 Subaru Impreza Hatchback
  • I am not sure why the Impreza in the video has a large cut out in the bumper. It was a customer vehicle and they may have had something else installed there at some point. Trimming is not required for installation of hitch # C11286. I have included a link to the instructions so you can see for yourself that trimming the bumper is not needed to install the hitch. For trailer wiring use # 118573 for a non-WRX/STi wagon. I have linked instructions for the wiring as well. The hitch comes...

  • Trailer Wiring 4-way Recommendation 2013 Impreza WRX
  • For a wiring kit for your 2013 Subaru WRX non-STI you would want the Tow Ready kit part # 119147KIT as this is the only Tow Ready harness confirmed to fit your vehicle. The part # 118573 hasn't been confirmed to fit your vehicle so I can't recommend it for you.
