Once installation is complete, the 4-way flat 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.

However, I would rate etrailer as 5 stars. Hope you can use this information on your database.



I did business several times with your company and every time I was satisfied with.



I had a problem with one of the parts I received in a previous acquisition, and etrailer replaced it seamless and quickly. So I continue ordering.



Price is on the high side, but considering my previous experience with etrailer I am ordering from your company.



I also appreciate quick responses to my questions.



This time products were received OK and have been already installed successfully.



One question:



The wiring is instaled but is loosen underneath the vehicle. That does not match the visual quality of the hitch or the vehicle itself.



Do etrailer has a box or something to hold this wiring under the vehicle while not in use ? ...Or have any suggestion for that ?

It sounds like you are talking about the end that would plug into the trailer wiring needs a home. If thats correct then part # 18144 would take care of that for you. If there is extra slack, I have heard of others using some zip ties to secure it.

2023 Toyota Highlander

Great price and so easy to install if you have the towing package. This item, along with a hitch, was shipped the same day as I ordered it. Easy to use website, great customer service and well edited videos. There’s nothing else to say but Thank You!

Great product. I w8sh there was a warning that there is a relay that you have to buy in 9rder for the wiring harness to allow power to and light up the trailer but I found that at my local Toyota dealership



by:
2022 Toyota Highlander

I found it really easy. Definitely need a second set of hands. The dealership trys to BS you and charge ridiculous amout of money selling you a tow package (V6 XLE highlanders come stock with tow package. All you need is a hitch and cable.

Installation was just what I expected. Easy and working well.

Simple plug and play.

Ordered this simple trailer connector December 12. Very small part and chose to have it sent economy (=USPS). The post office was overwhelmed and providing substandard service. Thanks again 2020. I contacted trailer on Dec 21 and spoke to Danielle. I explained how I needed the part for a post Christmas need and really had expected it to have arrived already. Danielle was very professional and listened carefully. Although it was still to early to initiate a call she said she’s would follow up the 23rd. AND she did, I received an email from Danielle with a status from the postal service and some kind words assuring me that it was on the way. It did arrive on Christmas Eve as described. The review is: disappointed with the post office and highly recommend the outstanding customer service from etrailer!! And the wiring adapter is good too.

As we setup the car for pulling a trailer, this was a super easy to install setup. Requires a little digging in the car however, once you find the jack int eh car, this harness is perfect.

Will work on a 2022 Toyota Highlander XLE AWD Hybrid

Love it. Fit perfectly, well made and easy to install . Saved $xxx by not having a dealer install it.



by:
2021 Toyota Highlander

The hitch fit very nicely under our '21 Toyota Highlander XSE. The only part visible is the hitch receiver. Very happy to pay a little more for a better aesthetic.



by:

It is made clear that this harness is for a vehicle equipped with the factory tow package. What is not clear is that if you have the harness plug on your vehicle, that is not indicative of having a tow package. Granted there are other components that would be obvious that a tow package is present, but it seems logical that if the connection is present, it should work. In order for the trailer lights to work, you need a converter box. Some sites show it as a 4/7-way pug adapter, but the picture is wrong, keep checking other sites to see the actual device. Also, there are plenty of forums that discuss this problem. The converter powers up the harness and the connection will work. The converter, which is simple to install, is about $xx from [dealership]. The kit supplied by etrailer is way more involved than the factory converter. Just be aware that the presence of the factory plug itself is not indicative of having a tow package.

You are correct, if you do not have the factory tow package, then you will need to have a converter box for the installation. There have been instances where the Toyota Highlander does have plugs that will fit but are not activated. When this happens, it means that you actually would need to activate the tow package with a fuse. In order to get that confirmation, you can contact a Toyota dealership to find out. If you do not have the tow package then you would need part # TK99FR.

2022 Toyota Highlander

Purchased item and received it very quickly. I followed the video that was posted for the item which was very helpful. As stated in the video it is helpful to have two people to lift the hitch into placement. I am very satisfied with the product and the ease of installation.



by:

Product as advertised...exact match for our vehicle. Plenty of wire length to reach the hitch.



by:
2022 Toyota Highlander

The wiring harness came with just the wires, no mounting bracket, no zip ties, and no instructions. I wish it had some sort of mounting bracket. We had to zip tie it to the hitch receiver to keep it from trailing on the ground, which looks pretty ugly. Otherwise, it works well.



by:

Incredibly easy to install.



by:
Toyota Highlander

I easily found the trailer plug under the rear bumper cover of my 2021 Highlander Limited. Initially I was not clear on whether I needed a converter. The answer is yes! But the converter plugs in at a different location. The converter plugs into a socket located behind the left rear interior quarter panel. There is a really good video of this on Utube. What you need is etrailer part TK99FR, which includes both the trailer wiring harness and the converter. Since I already had this wiring harness from etrailer, I used a Toyota converter (part 725-48200) that I obtained from a local dealer. Regardless of whether you use the etrailer converter or the OEM converter, it is a super easy connection to use the plug-in provided by Toyota. No splicing needed!



by:

Great fit for a fraction of the cost. Easy to install and great documentation. I recommend following the forum for lots of tips on how to DIY this.



by:
2022 Toyota Highlander

disruption of the product I needed was easier to find on etrailers site than on others. The right product was delivered a day earlier than posted



by:

Fit prefect and an easy install.



by:
2020 Toyota Highlander

Installation was a breeze. Following the video and with the aid of a friend, the hitch slipped into place without any hassles. Used the Pig Tail I purchased with the hitch which is "plug and play". Completed the task with the purchase of the Toyota Highlander Tow Converter from a local Toyota Dealer. The Quality of the hitch speaks for itself! IMHO, the hitch looks superior to the "through the bumper" OEM assembly.



by:
2022 Toyota Highlander

Perfect plug and play harness. Removed the factory plug cover, added a little dialectic grease and plugged in. Wire tied the excess harness to the body molding bracket, pushed the flat connector through the bracket, added some dialectic grease, and slid the coverover the plug. Simple process



by:

Easy install and fits the bracket perfectly. The receiver bracket and wiring harness make for a professional looking install.



by:

The service was very good.The hitch came in 2 days.It took my son in law 20 minutes to put it on.Very happy with this product.



by:
2020 Toyota Highlander

Easy to install but doesn't work. Did some additional research and maybe should have bought the TK99FR which comes with some additional adapter or something. But nowhere did it say to research this possibility before ordering. You see the TK74FR stated clearly that it would fit my vehicle. Frustrating!

Hi Maureen, Thanks for our feedback! This kit is for the 2020 Highlander with the factory tow package. For your Highlander, it sounds like you will need the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, part # TK99FR , for Highlanders without the factory tow package.

  • Is Flashing 2020 Toyota Highlander Required for Installing 4-Way
    Flashing is not required at all on a 2020 Toyota Highlander in order to install the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package - 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # TK74FR.

  • Checking Tow Light Wiring Fuse on 2020 Toyota Highlander
    The most likely issue is a blown or missing fuse for the trailer lighting. Locate the fuse panel under the hood, on the driver's side, near the fender. Your Owner's Manual can additionally provide you a picture of the location and instructions for opening it. Locate position 15 in the panel and determine if the fuse is missing or blown. I have attached a picture showing the location of that fuse in the panel.

  • How to Activate Trailer Tow Wiring Tow Package 2020 Toyota Highlander
    Typically, a vehicle manufacturer wouldn't have the plug there if it couldn't be made to work. I wasn't able to find a fuse diagram online for the 2020 Highlander (nor do they provide one in the online copy of the owner's manual I saw), but the previous gen has a 'Towing' fuse in the main box in the engine compartment that activates the tow package. The lid of the fuse box should have a label showing which fuses protect which circuits. All you'll need to do is install a fuse in that location...

  • Correct Replacment 4-Pin Trailer Connector for a 2021 Toyota Highlander
    It does sound like there is an issue with the connector itself, so replacing it with the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package # TK74FR is a great choice. This is a direct replacement to your OEM connector so it'll just plug right up and fit in place of your old one. If for some reason you can't get the new connector into the spot of the old one, you could always just add one with # 18144 and bypass it alltogether.
