Installation

This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located behind an interior trim panel in your rear cargo area, on the driver's side. Once you've plugged in the connector, you will have to route the harness through the jack storage compartment to the center of your vehicle. Before plugging the included 7-way socket into the tow harness, locate the fuse box under your hood and insert the provided fuses.


Once installation is complete, the 4-way connector will be stowed beneath your vehicle, near the trailer hitch. A mounting bracket (sold separately) is recommended to keep the connector secure.


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 118679 Review

Today we are going to be taking a look at the T1 vehicle wiring harness for factory tow packages. This unit is going to provide a 4 pull flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer signal lights. This is designed for certain years of the Honda Pilot. It's going to be compatible with 5 pull, 6 pull, and 7 pull adapters. Adapters are sold separately. And it's going to come with dust cap for the 4 way flat connector that way you can cover up the connection points when your plug is not being used. The black box right here this is going to be the included modulite, this is going to ensure that your vehicles wiring matches that of your trailer's.

Power module is going to connect directly to the vehicle battery through the wiring to avoid overloading the vehicles electrical system. Now another main benefit of this system is that it is designed to connect quickly and easily. All you have to do is look at the connection point in your rear cargo area. Plug in your connector, this port is custom fit to fit the port on your vehicle, so they will plug into one another. Then they will snap lock together for a nice tight secure fit. Once you have that connected you will need to make a ground connection, that is going to be the white wire right here with the ring terminal attached to it. You want to get that grounded to nice clean metal surface.

They do include a grounding screw in the hardware kit to make that connection. Then you will route the four way connector through the grommet hole into the jack storage area. This does include a grommet, it's already pre-installed and that's really going to help seal up that hole. Then the four way flat is going to be routed towards the center of the vehicle. You will also need to locate the fuse box under the hood of the vehicle and insert the included 30 amp fuse into the fuse box. It's also going to come with a 15 amp fuse, pre-installed in the wiring, nice little fuse cap there to keep it safe and secure. Once you have that done, you will mount the power module to a clean out of the way location. It includes double sided adhesive foam tape to get that mounted.

Once your installation is complete you can go ahead and secure any excess wires you have with the included zip ties. The four way connector is going to be stowed beneath the vehicle near the trailer hitch. You can loop it around the safety chain loop on the hitch or you can purchase a mounting bracket. That is sold separately, but it is recommended to help keep the connector secure. It is going to come with your detailed installation instructions, these are going to walk you through the installation process step by step. When it comes to the maximum amperage for the stop and turn lights we are looking at 4.2 amps per circuit, for the tail lights we are looking at 7.5 amps per circuit.

It's got some nice wire loom that goes around the wires to keep it protected. It is going to be recommended that you use a small amount di-electric grease on all your electrical connections. Like the plugs on the vehicle, and on the four pull connector itself, and that grease is really going to help prevent corrosion to the connection points. That is sold separately, so if you need some di-electric grease you can find it right here at eachother.com That is going to do it for today's look at the T1 vehicle wiring harness for factory tow packages, providing your four way flat trailer connector.

This is the third hitch I’ve purchased from etrailer.com. I needed a hitch for my wife's 2016 Honda Pilot. The Honda dealership quoted us $1012 to put on a hitch (parts & labor) which was way expensive... I checked a local garage who quoted $560. I still felt this was well overpriced, but my wife was hard-fast that a "professional" install the hitch, relieving her from liability if something went wrong with the hitch. I could not understand her firmness; she knows I am a "Shade Tree Mechanic" and have successfully twice installed etrailer.com hitches on my vehicles. The wife finally agreed to let me buy from etrailer when I showed her the etrailer.com site and the how-to video which demonstrated the install on the same 2016 Pilot she has (was even the same color) and the installer stated, “this install is one of the easiest I’ve seen”. We were very time restricted and needed the hitch before my wife returned to our previous house for another load of household goods (in the middle of a move) four days later. She wanted to take our small (4' x 8') light-duty trailer with her to haul some bulky items. Finding the right hitch and wiring harness on etrailer.com was very easy and I called to speak to a real person about express shipping and when I could expect delivery. The etrailer.com representative was super helpful and I settled on a 2-day express delivery with a shipping fee vs. the standard free shipping. etrailer.com kept me informed on the shipping status and all was good for an on-time delivery… Good and on-time until the local delivery driver (not the smartest guy) could not figure out where my temporary 300+ unit apartment complex was, thus the hitch arrived 1 day after my wife had to leave (without the trailer) before the hitch arrived/could be installed. I contacted etrailer.com about the late delivery, even though I paid for and was guaranteed the 2-day shipping. etrailer.com completely understood my grievance and was happy to credit the shipping charge. In the end, I paid ... for the hitch and wiring harness. That's savings vs. the Honda dealership. I have yet to install the hitch on my wife's car, but all needed items are there and the whole install should take 30-munites. etrailer.com is my first choice for all towing and hitch needs. 272076

I must admit that these folks are the best for aftermarket trailer accessories and superb customer service. I have the 2016 Honda Pilot EX-L and got the dealer to install the tow hitch in the deal. They wanted over $300 for the wiring harness and I said I'll pass. I searched online and came across these folks and I was glad I took the plunge. First, the video provided on this website was excellent. Make sure you watch it first. After that, installation was a breeze. The package came with everything you need to install the harness. The main thing was getting to the harness connector and a good ground. I used an inspection mirror to locate the harness connector. I pulled on it while at the same time using a small razor to cut the tape so it can come out. It's very tight so be careful. Once you get past this, you are good to go. Also, just take the ground from the connector as shown instead of try to drill elsewhere for a common ground. After that, the installation was completed and voila. Tested all lights and everything works well. I love you folks and please keep up the good work. You have been saved in my favorites for future purchases. Thanks George for the follow up email and superb customer service. 242633

I watched the video on youtube on how to install a Curt class 3 hitch and wiring harness on a 2016 Honda Pilot. Because of the video, I ordered both the items and had them installed in about a half hour with the help of a friend. The hitch was extremely heavy and very solid. I have no concerns with it at all. The wiring harness installed exactly as the video showed and worked with my trailer as soon as I plugged it in. It was a very high quality harness, wrapped with a plastic sheathing and solid rubber grommet to replace the original. The only issue with the harness are the zip ties. They aren't long enough to wrap around the hitch in order to secure the wire. You will have to go out and buy longer ties. I have a 2017 Honda Pilot Elite, and everything from the two videos were exactly what I experienced when I installed the product. The only constructive criticism I can give to Etrailer, is to package the hitch with some expanding foam. The hitch during transport broke through the box, and as a result UPS didn't deliver it. I ended up having to call several times to confirm that the package was at the hub, and I ended up going and picking it up. 412108

There is good and bad with this product. First, the first bad. The instructions that were in the box were next to useless. The good thing is that the installation video on etrailer.com does show EXACTLY how to install this unit, so I didn't need the instructions. The second bad thing is really just a minor criticism of the installation video on etrailer.com. There are two steps illustrated in the video that are totally unnecessary, first is the removal of the front and back panels of the recessed cargo area. The second unnecessary step is the removal of the phillips head screw in the bottom cargo "D" ring. It may have provided slightly more room, but that screw was really, really tight in my car. Rather than fight it, I just squeezed my hand behind the panel without much effort at all with the screw left in place. Other than that, the video was very helpful. I have installed a few trailer wiring harnesses over the years. This one is by far the best, easiest and most worth the money of any so far. 435202

Easy install for 2016 Honda Pilot. The factory installed white plug (which connects to the white plug on this item) was tucked up fairly high and almost out of reach. I had to extend my hand upward and unwrap the electrical tape (by touch only, can't see) in order to release the slack and let the pre-existing wires drop into the workable space. Also, when it came time to connect the white grounding wire, I lost the enclosed self-tapping screw into a small crevice once I applied pressure with my driver. Fortunately I had a backup nearby. There is a machined threaded opening in this area (vacant) and I assume it is provided by the manufacturer so that tow kits can be added. If I had known the diameter beforehand I would have used a machine threaded screw to connect the ground wire there instead of a self-tapping screw. Check it out beforehand! 240224

The product works well once it is in. So five stars for the product, three or four for the awkward install. The trick was to find the plug in the vehicle and attach the wiring harness - the plug is hidden up under the panel and it was impossible to pull it down very far, so the attachment is made mostly by touch/feel. Otherwise things went smoothly (oh and as an added bonus I discovered a cute little fuel funnel and fuel door latch that I didn't know was there, along with figuring out where the jack and handles were stored). Oh - and if you want to attach the four prong plug to the hitch rather than just have it dangling around under your car, then need to order a part (suggest that e-trailer could suggest an appropriate part for the hitch you purchased). 305912

Bought a Hitch & Light Kit for my 2017 Honda Pilot. The deals wanted $1400.00 installed. Your videos honestly tell you how hard it may be to install and how to do it so I put money back in my own pocket instead of a greedy dealers! I found you'll because my brother Harley F. Illes, Belleview, Fl. bought one very recently for his spouses 2016 Dodge Durango and highly recommended you'll. I seldom appreciate the customer service at the levl you'll provided because to many companies anymore it's just lip service. Thank you'll for remembering that you can make a pretty good living providing service with excellence in mind. People this is a sincere review for you to consider. I don't work for this company and other than this purchase I didn't know them. 384978

I purchased this product for my new car and it was a very easy product to install once you have the proper tools. For me the ground wire was the most difficult thing to install because of the space you have to work, but once I found the proper size drill it was simple. Everyone needs to go to the etrailer.com website and watch the instructional video several times because they show you the simple instructions of how to do the job and then show you the finished product after you complete the steps required. This is the second time I have purchased one of these products and both times they were very simple and quick to accomplish. etrailer is a very great place to purchase and they are great at showing you what is needed to accomplish the procedures. 277544

It has worked just fine ever since I finished the installation.

Installation of the wiring for a 2017 Honda Pilot was "almost" easy. The connection attached to the vehicle does NOT pull down as shown in the video or the instructions. You need to reach, fiddle, play with and unfortunately "scream" a bit to find and attach the connectors with you fingertips. Without a mirror you cannot even see the connection. It was not easy because the connection is so hidden. It took me about 45 minutes to install what should have been 5 minutes. This is NOT the fault of etrailer but that of Honda for not giving more room/length to their connection port. I connected everything and found my trailer was DEAD! Then I realized my "AUTO" switch was set and when I turned on my headlights my trailer lit beautifully. 330715

It is always good when a product is exactly as advertised and this was, and the videos were extremely helpful. It took me about an hour to install but I was working by myself and off the ground. The installation went smoothly and this probably will not be my last purchase from etrailer. 332716

I received the package but was a little bit dismayed when I discovered there was no "Little Man" in the box to take care of the installation. (The Irish normally receive a Leprechaun with these type units. The "Lep" usually comes with return postage guaranteed). Once understanding the situation, I was able to review the web site and observe the video relating to the products. I really didn't need a "Lep" after all. Can't wait until the next order arrives. 320703

Customer service was great, I ordered on a Sunday and Received product as promised. Installation took a total of about hour, if I had a lift and a garage full of tools it would have been a half an hour. I'm no mechanic, but do most of my own work when I feel capable and have the proper tools. This was a win of a buy, Honda wanted over $2k, I did for under $300. I did not have cut or mess with the rear bumper the receiver comes out just below. The only challenge was the location of the trailer harness plug in the rear compartment, it was not visible, tucked up with little to no slack. Looks great and I recommend for a 2016 Honda Pilot. 443055

I purchased the trailer hitch (#75225) and the 4 pole flat trailer connector(#118679). The trailer hitch went on without a problem(even did it by myself). However, some sadistic SOB at the Honda assembly plant taped the connector plug up to another wire harness and I couldn't pull it down far enough to plug in the T-one wiring harness connector. I had use a small knife blindly to cut the tape holding the connector to the other wires hoping I wouldn't cut into the wires. I was successful but it was a very frustrating job. Nothing wrong with the product, just the assembly of my 2017 Honda Pilot. 334852

I bought the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver. It was actually easier to install than the video I watched. I also bought the Tekonsha Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring Harness (118679 ). I only had one issue installing it which had nothing to do with the harness. I could not get the Philips Screw out from the lower tie down. It had been tightened down to much at the factory, so I took it to the dealer to get it removed. Once that was done, I was able to install the harness in less time than was listed. Very please with the hitch and harness. Would definitely buy from etrailer,com again! 448501

This was my first time ordering from etrailer and I couldn't be happier. My shipment was sent out and received in a timely manner and the quality was top notch. One of the items I purchased was a trailer wiring harness for a Honda Pilot. I'll admit I was skeptical about how well it would work with this vehicle, but it couldn't have been any more straight forward to install. I had watched a video on how to install and it installed exactly like the video. I have to give you a huge THANK YOU for that. I will definitely visit the etrailer site again for any future needs. 448585

Design is great, installation a breeze. I reviewed the video that suggests taking a more intrusive panel disassembly approach but I found that all that extra work was un-necessary. If you access the "funnel" panel and jack panel (and remove the jack), you can get the job done. Just reach up into the "Funnel" panel (upper left corner) and you'll find the factory applied plug. Most difficult task was getting the grommet to install completely. It's a much tighter (and better) fit than the factory plug that popped out too easily. With regret, I didn't take any photos! 441649

I installed the wiring harness without any problems on my 2107 Honda Pilot. Was not able to utilize the bracket I purchased to hold the plug. (#18144) Unable to find a suitable location to mount the bracket. The cutout in the factory bumper is made for the round 7 pin plug, I was not able the find a socket that would fit in the factory location. 372641

Easy plug and play installation. Instructions were very detailed and easy to follow. Could have used a few large zip ties for securing the slack cable to undercarriage, but luckily I had some. Inside the jack compartment there is a spot on the sheet metal with a threaded hole. I used this to secure the ground with a short 10mm bolt. Half an inch from this there is a square 1/4 hole where I used a square 1/4 molly to secure the power transformer unit. Much better than the double sided tape provided and looks more "factory". 242409

Good product. Plug fit perfect. White ground lead should be 2-4 inches longer ! After fishing wires through lower body and pulling in new rubber grommet, white ground lead is just long enough to go to bolted connection recommended in the installation video. Horrible packaging job, wire harness box thrown in tow hitch box and crushed badly. I am lucky scuffed wire harness module box works okay. Box should have been shipped separately. Product 4 star, crushed box from the way it was shipped 1 star. 426081

I just bought a new vehicle. I didn't want the dealership to add anything on to it. I bought a trailer hitch and wiring harness here a day after getting the vehicle. I thought I didn't get the installation bolts. I called etrailer. They said they were taped onto the hitch. I Google searched for trailer installation and found at the top of the list the YouTube video from etrailer. I then searched for wiring harness installation and found another YouTube video. Both made it easy for me to install. 269758

I ordered an etrailer hitch for my 2016 Honda Pilot. Everything was packed well and shipped quickly. I was amazed that it was so easy to install and everything lined and fit perfectly and the 6 bolts, included, was all that was needed. The electrical harness also was so easy to install. Just plug in the main connector, insert the included fuse on the Honda fuse box , and all lights worked perfectly. This hitch is better than the Honda factory hitch and I saved lots of money. 347006

My hitch was delivered in perfect condition. The instructions for it along with the wiring were great. However, I never needed to read them but instead followed the video link. With my limited skill, the instillation took about 90 minutes including the wiring. We are very happy!! 292872

This wiring harness was easier to install than boiling pasta! The video of the install is completely accurate. The 2 interior access panels were easily opened with a screw driver and fingers. I did not have to lift the truck at all. I did not have to drop the spare tire. The truck harness connector was easily reached. Everything fit so easily I completed everything in less than an hour. Great product that works great and was super easy to install. 449094

The wiring kit connected right up to my Honda Pilot. I wish the ground wire had been a bit longer to allow the module to be place at the bottom, instead of hanging. There was some double stick tape that was worthless because there's nowhere to stick it. Also worth noting that Honda taped back the connector way up behind the plastic body panel which made it a real pain to cut it loose. Other than that it was easy to install. 427549

Product was delivered on time and in great condition. It was very easy to install. It took less than an hour to install both the hitch and wiring harness. Did not have to lower spare tire or jack up the vehicle to install the hitch as illustrated on videos. It helps to have a friend help hold the hitch up while installing the bolts. Looks great on the vehicle and I saved a lot of money doing the project myself. 278899

Truly Plug-n-Play unit, the worst part is getting into the compartment where the wiring connectors join up. The harness specific video ( 8 1/2 minutes long) is great in showing exactly how to get to the plug end, which is buried just beyond the reach of my fingers. I finally dug it out, and the rest was uneventful Once again, etrailers leads the way for seamless installations for the consumer 444560

I ordered a hitch& wiring harness for my 2016 Honda Pilot. I received it ups, in a few days. It came with everything I needed, which made it easy sneezy! My Honda dealer quoted me 456.00 to install both! My wife assisted me on the install. It took us about an hour for everything!

The product, wiring harness item 118679, was simple to install especially after I reviewed the etrailer's video example on its installation. If you have a 2017 Honda Pilot and you want a trailer hitch, this is the place to get your supply from. Not only it matches your car specs but also the etrailer's reps do give the necessary steps to make your installation smooth. 361430

Have not looked all the way thru the box yet, but I did find the wiring harness inside and it was in excellent condition. This is a very reputable seller and supplier of great parts as advertised. Will probably be installing this weekend. 323136

Pretty easy installation and exactly as shown on the video. Less than an hour install time. Opening the two small covers on the side to reveal the 8mm bolt and phillips screw can be a little tricky - be careful, very easy to slip off and scratch the surrounding areas...plastic putty knife in substitute for the screwdriver helps alleviate some of this concern. 392539

The assembly was very easy, even with one person...but two would be much easier as lifting the hitch and bolting at the same time with one person can be cumbersome. Electrical harness was super easy too. Watch the video for a better understanding than the instructions given. Though I haven’t used the the hitch to tow, the constructions seems very sturdy. 455847

I received my hitch & harness just a few days after ordering, received it today, took it to my mechanic & had my car back in an hour. He said it was so simple even he couldn't believe it. The Pilot has easy connects so the matching connections went together easily. The hitch also bolted on with no problem. Thanks for the good product. Bob 434025

I bought my trailer hitch and wiring harness after watching the videos and how well the info was presented on the tutorials. I plan on light utility trailer towing with my Honda Pilot so the products offered were exactly what I was in the market for. I would recommend the etrailer experience to anyone looking to save some money and to do it yourself. 433638

Quality wiring. I had some trouble with the supplied double sided tape the unit kept falling down because there wasn’t enough slack in the cable once I secured the floor rubber seal and placed the jack back it it pressed against the cable and caused the tape to come off I added some extra tap I had on hand but I still feel like it might come off. 451548

I have not yet used the product, but I am sure it is exactly what I need. Patrick O worked with me very patiently and diligently. I have never used a trailer or installed a trailer hitch receiver and wiring. Patrick spent a good amount of time helping me find the product that best fits my vehicle, trailer and towing conditions. 340395

I installed this harness in roughly 20 mins. It fits perfectly on my wife's 2016 Honda Pilot. We only tow PWCs and the harness simply works for this application (and other 4-way connector applications I'm assuming). The video provided by etrailer was easy to follow and definitely helped me do the job more quickly. Thanks guys! 381679

Everything went just as the video (which was very helpful) said. Haven't towed yet, but tested the wiring for power/current with blinkers and everything looks good. Installation is easy/quick. Only advice: the self-tapping screw at the angle you have to work with? Fuggeddaboudit. Drill a pilot hole. 351420

Kind of easy to install. Only problem was I had was I couldn't pull down the tow harness with the connector as far as in the video shown. Took me 15min off fiddling around and finally my wife's small hands fit into the access panel and she put the two pieces together. From there the rest is easy going. 358246

Product was as good as or better than expected. The directions were simple and straight forward to follow. All the parts fit great and appeared to be of good quality. I would order this part again. The price seemed fair too. This was installed on a 2017 Honda Pilot EX. 376502

The harness fit perfectly. However finding the connecting end in the vehicle was very difficult. No fault of the product but it did make my installation time much longer than expected. Once I finally found the end in the vehicle, installation was easy. 358291

It was amazing easy to install, thank you. One complaint you used a self tapping screw for the ground? Right beside the self tapping screw you installed there is a treaded hole and I just got a small fine treaded bolt and installed the ground with that. 290032

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2017 Honda Pilot without Factory Tow Package

  • Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer with a 2016 Honda Pilot
  • I've attached an image of what a 7-way would look like for you to check your vehicle. Typically the parts to tow a trailer would be a hitch, a trailer wiring harness, a ballmount and a ball. If you have a heavy trailer with breaks you may need a brake controller and weight distribution. First lets start with what you will need for both applications. A hitch is what you need to use to tow anything of weight with your 2016 Honda Pilot. I recommend the Draw-Tite # 75225 because...

The harness plugs in at a white connector located behind a rear cargo area access door on the driver's side. Please refer to the linked photo of the connector and to the linked instructions for installation procedures. If your Pilot does not have the factory tow package with 7-way then...

  • Brake Controller and Wiring Harness for a 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Factory 7-Way Connector
  • Of the 3 vehicles you are looking at it will be easiest to add a brake controller to the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a factory tow package that includes the factory 7-Way trailer connector. The others, Volvo XC90 or Honda Pilot, would require at least a partial hardwire of the brake controller and routing wires through the firewall and splicing into the brake switch. With the Jeep Grand Cherokee with factory 7-Way all you will need is the brake controller and wiring harness. I recommend...

  • Which 4-Way or 7-Way Trailer Connector Do I Need for My 2016 Honda Pilot
  • To tell the difference between a 4-Way or 7-Way Connector is to look at the connector itself and see how many pins it has. I have included a picture showing both a 4 and 7-Way for you. The 4-Way is the basic connection for trailer lights. You have 4 pins, one controlling the left turn signal and left brake, one controlling the right turn signal and right brake light, one for the running lights, and the last is a ground wire. On a 7-Way connection you have the same 4 functions as...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2016 Honda Pilot
  • The hitches we offer from Curt, Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite would all have receiver openings that are visible below the rear bumper fascia of your Pilot. On the plus side, most of the hitch would not be visible from the rear, but unfortunately, none of them would utilize the knock out in the back bumper. I've linked you to a video comparing the different hitches available for your Pilot. Of the available choices, I'd recommend the Curt # C13146 because quality and capacity wise it's comparable...

  • Recommended Brake Controller And Wiring For 2017 Honda Pilot

It also has a really nice LCD screen that takes the code deciphering of most brake controllers out of the equation. It has 3 levels of boost and is adjustable to your preferences.

This has a 900 pound tongue weight and 6,000 pound towing weight capacity. Because the hitch will use existing holes in the vehicle frame, no drilling is required during installation.

  • Between the hitches for the 2016 Honda Pilot Curt hitch # C13146 is going to offer more ground clearance compared to Draw-Tite hitch # 75225.

The Curt hitch measures approximately 12-1/4 inches from the ground to the bottom of the receiver. It measures 14-1/2 inches to the top of the receiver opening. I included a picture showing...
