This custom-fit T-connector plugs into your Toyota Corolla's wiring harness, which is located behind the driver's-side and passenger's-side interior trim panels in your rear cargo area.

Once installation is complete, the 4-way connector will be stowed in an out-of-the-way location within your cargo area.

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.

Tail Light Converter with Surface-Mount Technology

A tail light converter is built into this T-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 Toyota Corolla's three-wire system need to be combined so they are compatible with the wiring system of the trailer. This converter combines 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 Toyota Corolla operate.

Curt builds each tail light converter using surface-mount technology (SMT). This method of construction involves soldering electronic components directly to the surface of a printed circuit board. SMT eliminates the need for leads, which are used in older through-hole technology. The result is a circuit board that is smaller yet provides more routing area and that offers superior performance, reliability and durability.

Curt SMT Circuit Boards

Circuit boards constructed using SMT have been shown to perform better under rough conditions with excessive vibration than those made using the through-hole method. And where would vibration be more likely to occur than in towing applications? Curt converters also produce less heat, leading to increased durability and longer life. In addition, lower levels of resistance ensure better performance, especially for parts that operate at higher frequencies.

Each Curt circuit board is made using high-quality components that are pieced together in the most technologically savvy fashion, leading to greater predictability and reliability in functioning.

Video Transcript for Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring 55542 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number 55542. This is the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness. It's going to have the 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector. That way it's going to provide the 4-way flat connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer signal lights. This is compatible with 5-pole, 6-pole, and 7-pole adapters. Those adapters are sold separately.

If you need one, we do carry those here on our website. This product is going to fit the 2003-2013 Toyota Corolla. One of the great features and benefits of a system like this is that it's going to connect quickly and easily. You don't have to worry about cutting or splicing any of your wires. All you have to do is locate the connection points in the rear cargo area. Those are going to be located behind the driver side and passenger side interior trim panels, and then simply just plug in your t-connectors.

These plugs are a real easy installation. They're going to match up perfectly with the plugs on your vehicle, and literally all you have to do is just snap them into place, and then they're going to lock into position for a nice, tight, secure fit. The side with the green wire, that's going to run to the passenger side. That's why it's got some extra bundle of wire there. The side with the red and yellow wire and brown and white, that's going to stay on the driver side of the vehicle. If we just follow that wiring harness, it's going to take us to this black box right here.

This is going to be your tail light converter. This is already pre-wired in, and that's designed to ensure that your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailer's. It's going to be constructed using surface-mount technology. It's going to offer consistent reliable performance. What that means is it's going to maximize your trailer light yield and intensity while producing minimal heat.

It's also going to ensure superior operation even in rough road conditions. On this side of the box we're going to have the wiring for the 4-way connector. You'll see we've got plenty of wiring. It's all bundled up right now, but that way you can extend it out the back of your vehicle and make your connection as needed for your particular application. Here at the end of that wiring we're going to have the plug. It's going to be our standard 4-way flat plug, and that's going to include a nice dust cap. That way we can cover up the connection points when the connector's not being used. Once your installation is complete, the 4-way flat connector's going to be stowed in an out-of-the-way location within the cargo area on your vehicle. When it comes to the maximum amperage for the stop and turn lights, we're looking at 3 amps per circuit, and for the tail lights we're looking at 5 amps per circuit. A couple other things that you're going to get. You're going to get very detailed instructions, got some nice pictures on there. It makes the installation much easier. Those are going to walk you through the entire process step by step. You're going to get some double-sided adhesive tape. That way you can mount and secure the tail light converter box. And you're going to get some zip ties. That way you can secure any excess or slack in the wiring. It makes for an overall cleaner appearance for your installation. We're also going to recommend that you use a small amount of dielectric grease on all electrical connections to help prevent any type of corrosion from being able to settle in. If you don't have any of that, you can pick up some here on our website. It's going to be sold separately. That's going to do it for our review of part number 55542. This is the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with the 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector.

The wiring harness was easy to install. The most difficult part was finding the driver side connector to disconnect. That takes all of 15 seconds. The harness installation was complete in 45 minutes which includes unloading and loading the trunk. When at an auto parts store, after installing the harness, I saw another brand of harness which cost about half of what I paid. Upon closer examination I learned that it required wires to be spliced and the kit was made in China. The harness that I installed was made in the USA, did not require splicing, and included independent circuit protection. None of these were true about the competitor's product. 260078

I originally had a harness that you needed to splice wires together. It seemed like way to much work. I found this harness after doing some hunting online and I have to say it was well worth the extra $ I had to pay for it. Plus it was so easy to install.... Especially for a woman :) I had no trouble at all doing it myself. Thanks to the installation video on the website. Great product & great price. The delivery of the product didn't take but a couple days which was also great. 139369

(Oops. Provided the wrong review for this product). My neighbor hooked up the wiring and used to do it all the time, so it was just a matter of pushing it under a rubber overlay at the back under the rear door, and under the carpeting to curl up in the opening for the tail lights. When I do hook it up, it should be a simple matter to attach the loose plugs to the trailer, but, haven't done it yet! 82237

This trailer light kit is fantastic. High quality, easy to install, over-current protected and works light a charm. It just plugs right in with no splicing or soldering involved. Automatically converts the four bulb tail light setup (2 for each side) of the Corolla to a two bulb setup of of a normal trailer. This works great and adds value to my car. I could not be more pleased with this. 61037

Product arrived at scheduled time. All pieces ordered were properly and securely packed so no damage occurred during shipping process. Quality of products is great. Read installation instructions and believe the trailer hitch and wiring kit will be easy to install. This particular hitch will be mounted to my 2006 Toyota Corolla to pull a vintage 1985 light sailboat. 399902

I am 71 years old. this wiring harness was a piece of cake to install even for an old pilgrim like me (lol).took me about 20 to 30 minutes( but I took my time )..The only downside was the written directions was kinda vague(but then again I'm old. So I went by the video on your website and that was so helpfull...Thank you for a good product 83716

The trailer hitch's fit was excellent. Also the wiring harness installed very easily. My only problem was that the weld nuts in the frame were very rusted and it took quite a lot of time with a wire tube brush to get them cleaned out so that the bolts would install. Once they were clean, the installation was every easy. 2007 Corolla S. 79455

I purchased this trailer adapter system for a 2012 Toyota Corolla which has independent wiring for brake lite and rear turn signal lites. I installed it with little trouble and it worked and is still working with my small trailer. What else could you ask for in a product? 424110

this is a very good product allows you to attach the trailer wiring without cutting your vehicles wiring . it sounds like a minor detail but it is not .it is always best to protect the integrity of your vehicles wiring . very happy with the product and the people at e trailer 235603


the trailer hitch and wiring are both working well for us after about a years use . after having this thing for awhile i find it is just what i needed . i like the fact that when it is not being used the wiring goes in the trunk out of the weather .

I purchased a T-Connector kit #55542 for a 2004 Toyota. What a piece of cake to install, 35 min. to complete. 25 min. taking trunk lining out and back in, 10 min to connect wiring. These people have it together also received the kit in 3 days not the usual 7 to 10 76916

Works. Instructions could have been better. Could have come with some more zip ties, or better style of zip ties. Some of the cables could have been longer. Could have come with some replacement trunk liner fasteners because you will inevitably break some. 10310

by: Mike J07/01/2011

Very simple to install. No splicing involved. Just open the trunk liner, disconnect both tail light connectors, and insert the new adapters. Secure with provided zip ties and two way tape then put the liner back in place. Takes about five minutes. 18362

Do you have a question about this Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring?

  • Bolt Size to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2004 Toyota Corolla
  • The weldnuts in the frame for your 2004 Toyota Corolla to install a trailer hitch are M12 nuts. The bolts used to install a hitch, # C11265 as an example, are M12-1.25 x 30mm grade 5. It is recommended to clean out the weldnuts prior to installing the hitch. Road grime and corrosion can get compacted in the threads and you would not be able to thread in the bolts without first cleaning the weldnuts.

  • When headlights are on, Left Turn Signal Does Not Work After Wiring a 2006 Toyota Corolla
  • It sounds like you have a bad ground connection. You are correct that the # 55542 harness uses the vehicle ground, so I would turn my attention to the trailer. If all ground connections are not making good contact to bare metal, when the tail lights are turned on then the trailer lights will go out or not function properly. You will need to check all of the ground connections especially where the tail lights are mounted to the trailer frame, and where the light brackets are mounted...

  • Difference Between the Tow Ready Harness and the Curt Harness for a 2009 Toyota Corolla
  • The reason a wire is run to the battery on the Tow Ready Harness # 118459 is to help protect the tail light circuitry of your 2009 Toyota Corolla. You see, the # 118459 uses the tail light circuitry of the vehicle merely as signal wires and powers the tail lights of your trailer with the power it gets from the battery. Tail light circuits can be damaged if they are overdrawn and the # 118459 eliminates this problem by bypassing the tail light circuits as power sources. The Curt T-Connector...

  • Are Class II Hitches Available for a 2007 Toyota Corolla?
  • Each hitch that is available for a 2007 Toyota Corolla is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver such as the Draw-Tite # 24913. According to the '07 Corolla's owners manual, the towing capacity of the vehicle is 1,500 lbs, which is why there are no Class II hitches available. The Class I Draw-Tite has a 2,000 lbs towing capacity and 200 lbs tongue weight capacity, and if you were looking to tow, you would need to add a 4-flat connector # 55542 as well as drawbar # 3593, which comes with...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation for a 2010 Toyota Corolla Towing Trailer with LED Tail Lights
  • Yes, the Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring # 55542 that you referenced would work on your 2010 Toyota Corolla and work well with the LED tail lights of your trailer. LED tail lights draw considerably less than incandescent bulbs so they should work well with the # 55542 since this harness has a 3 amp per circuit limit for the stop/turn lights and 7.5 amp limit per circuit for the running light circuit. I attached installation instructions and an install video for this product also.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver And Wiring For 2007 Toyota Corolla CE
  • The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # 24913 will fit all Toyota Corolla models from 2003-2017. It is a confirmed fit for your 2007 Toyota Corolla CE. If you will be using this hitch for towing, I recommend the compatible ball mount # 3593 and a hitch ball like # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch option or # 19258 for a 2 inch diameter ball. For wiring, I recommend the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector #...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2011 Toyota Corolla
  • The Curt Hitch part # C11265 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2011 Toyota Corolla. The capacities for this hitch are 2,000 lbs trailer weight and 200 lbs tongue weight. As long as your trailer and lawn mower weigh less than those figures and the towing capacities of your car this hitch would work well for. You will also need the appropriately sized trailer ball for your coupler, part # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch ball or # 19258 for a 2 inch ball. You will also need...

  • Troubleshooting Both Trailer Turn Signals Coming On With Right Blinker
  • Sounds like you have some of your trailer wires shorted out to each other. You will need to go over the wiring of the connector on your tow vehicle and trailer to find the short between the two and fix as needed. I attached a couple help articles on troubleshooting trailer wiring for you to check out as well. You can also try improving the grounds of the lights to see if that helps too. Sometimes insufficient grounds cause all sorts of weird behavior.

  • Can a 110 Pound Ice Cream Trike be Carried on a 2007 Toyota Corolla LE
  • Since the trailer hitches for your 2007 Toyota Corolla are all Class I there isn't going to be a hitch mounted option that will work. Even with a higher Class hitch the trike carriers are not rated for more than 100 pounds. The best solution I can offer is to put the ice cream trike on a small utility trailer and tow it. I can offer everything but the trailer. For a trailer hitch I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24814 with ball mount # 3593. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256 and...

  • Will TowReady Trailer Wiring Harness # 118459 Fit 2004 Toyota Corolla
  • The TowReady powered wiring harness # 118459 is designed for the 2009 through 2013 model years of the Toyota Corolla. For your 2004 Corolla the recommended harness is Curt # 55542. This kit is simpler to install and actually will deliver higher rated current output than the Tow Ready kit. Your Corolla has heavier wiring than later model years and so can use the non-powered Curt harness. However, my contact at Tow Ready did confirm that you could use kit # 118459 on your 2004 Corolla...

  • Does Trailer Wiring for 2009 Toyota Corolla Need to be Grounded
  • The Curt trailer wiring harness part # 55542 that you have does have instructions that say to ground a white wire yet the harness does not have a white wire to ground. That step is in there by mistake and you would be fine to ignore it.
