This custom-fit T-connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located either behind the driver's-side and passenger's-side tail light assemblies or behind the rear bumper along the frame rail.

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.

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 vehicle'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 vehicle 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 C55513 Review

Today we're going to review part number C55513. This is the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with the 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector. This is a custom fit part number. It is designed to fit the 1993 to 1998 Toyota T100 pickup and the Toyota Tacoma model starting in 2005. What I would recommend is go to the product page of this part number on our website and at the bottom of the product page it will list the exact years and models that this will fit on. This is a quickly and easily way to install a 4-way trailer connector on your vehicle using this wiring harness. The T-connectors right here will plug directly into existing wiring so there's no cutting, splicing or tapping into the lines required.

The converter that they use is made using a surface mount technology to ensure superior performance. This harness will provide a 4-way flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle. This will power your trailer's signal lights. This 4-way is compatible with 5-pole, 6-pole and 7-pole adapters that we do sell separately. This does connect quickly and easily. There's no cutting or splicing the wires.

Basically you'll locate the connection points at the rear of the truck, plug in these T-connectors and you'll be ready to go after you ground the white wire. This does include the taillight converter right here. This converter will ensure that your vehicle's wiring will match that of your trailer's. This converter is constructed using surface mount technology which has consistent, reliable performance. This will maximize your trailer light yield in the intensity while producing minimal heat. This does ensure superior operation in rough road conditions. Now all the parts shown here are included.

It comes with a nice set of colored, detailed instructions so you can see where it shows you where to install the harness. It comes with a piece of double-sided tape that is used to attach the converter to your vehicle. It comes with a grounding screw to get a good clean ground of the ground wire. It comes with some zip ties to help secure any loose wires and it comes with the dust cap for the 4-way connector. Basically what you can do is just pop this on and when you're not using it, when it's not connector to a trailer, you can just pop the dust cap right over to protect it. Then when you're going to hook up the trailer, you just plug it right in and you're ready to go. Now a few specs on this harness: The maximum amperage that it'll take for the stop and turn lights is 3 amps per circuit, for the taillights is 5 amps per circuit. Basically the way you'll go to install this is these T-connectors.

These will basically attach to the back of your taillights on your vehicle. What you'll do is the side right here that has the yellow in it, that's for the driver's side. You'll go to the back of the taillight, pop out the connection of the wiring harness to the taillight and just hook this T-connector right in. Then what you'll do is go to the passenger side. As you can see, it has a longer amount of wire so the green wire signifies that it's the passenger side. You'll just go all the way across to the passenger side. Do the same. Disconnect the back of the taillight, plug it right into here. Then you'll still have the white wire to attach and what you'll do is, it has the eyelet on it. Just connect this to a good clean ground using an existing screw or the included grounding screw that they include. With that all connected, you'll be ready to go. You can see your 4-way has a length of wire that you can just extend out so it'll hang out of the back of the vehicle. If you're not using it, just coil it up and store it in the back of the vehicle. That should do it for the review on part number C55513, the Curt T-connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with the 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector. .

Product shipped quickly for me. I spent 4 hours putting the wiring harness on my Toyota T100 because I installed the wiring in 1/2 wiring loom not provided, taped the loom in various places, and wire tied the loom up for a professional type job and so the wires would not be cut or rubbing on the frame. The instructions tell you that you must install the converter in the tail light compartment and then the grounding wire is not long enough to reach outside the compartment to attach to the frame or cross member. I got this all taken care of only to find out that my tail and brake lights worked properly but the left and right turn signal on the trailer would not function correctly unless you unplugged the flat four connector each time so the converter could reset. They were great about listening to my problem, even on Sunday, and are sending me a new wiring harness to replace the malfunctioning one I received but are not compensating me for any of my time or the tape and wire loom used. I have not received the new harness yet but will let you know what I think of the new harness after I get it installed for the second time. 219713

The hitch receiver fit perfectly. It took a little over an hour to install with the aid of a small air wrench. The wiring took about the same and the instructions that came with it were quite helpful especially when removing the taillights on my Tacoma. Only issue I could see was the length of the Curt wiring harness. A slightly longer wire to run to the passenger side tailight would have made it easier to run along the Tacoma's existing wiring. Kudos to for speed of order shipping. I ordered it on a Thursday and it arrived in Southeast Alaska on Monday morning. 186367

George, When I received my order the wire harness that was sent was incorrect so my mechanic couldn't complete the installation I called your team for assistance and was told that It would take 3 days to get it to me. I wasn't happy with that but that's all they could do so I went thru another weekend without being able to tow my boat! Then I didn't receive the harness on that Wednesday so I called to find out I will be getting it on Friday 8 days after the original delivery again I ordered the right part you shipped out the wrong one!! Very disappointed 407331

by: Greg W.06/17/2016

Hardest part of this install was getting the connectors unsnapped from the tail-lights. Worked just fine. As others have said, the passenger side wiring could use another 6-8" of length, but it fits as is. I wrapped the wires with some extra heavy tape where it passed through or near any sharp edges. Hey etrailer: This part came boxed inside along with my hitch. It was taped to the hitch tounge and got really smashed up during shipping. Luckily nothing was broken. I'd suggest taping this to an area of the hitch where it is less likely to get smashed. 262189

I purchased a wiring harness a year ago for my 2013 Toyota Tacoma Pickup to haul my utility trailer. The installation instructions were very simple and clear. I installed the harness within an hour without any problems. It's working great when I need it and would recommend this product and any other from Etrailer. I have purchased many items from Etrailer thru the years and find the videos and other instructions very helpful with the installation. Great prices, great products and above all great support! 309266

I purchased the Curt T-Connector wiring harness along with the Curt Trailer Hitch receiver for my 2010 Toyota Tacoma. Both came with complete installation instructions and illustrations. They were easy to follow and install. Installation time for both was about 2.5 hours, but I am 72 years old and don't move too fast anymore. The only help I needed was to lift the hitch to the frame and install the bolts to hold it up. Everything was of very good quality and I am completely satisfied. 170534

I just finished installing your wiring harness on my 2014 Tacoma. I had a question about removing my tail light so I called your 1-800 number. Within about 3 minutes my questions were answered. I love the idea that it just plugged in - no cutting or splicing! I have nothing to plug into it yet, but the tail lights work just fine, so I'm assuming a trailer's lights will work, too. It was a simple job which only took awhile because I wanted to wrap , tuck and tie everything up securely. 158272

Installed the etrailer hitch and wiring kit on my 2006 toyota tacoma last week. I could not be happier with the products. very good instructions and videos to help with install. I got a good tip on one video were the installer used tie down belts around tailgate so your bumper does not have to lifted off. I did it that way and worked great no lifting the heavy bumper done it all by myself. Great company! Plan on getting one for my wife's Honda CRV in the future. 184281

My pickup had a new frame installed due to a manufacturer's recall. During the installation the old wiring for the trailer lights was taken out. I didn't want to pay for a commercial company to reinstall a wiring kit after I saw how easy this system was for installation. The Curt custom fit vehicle wiring was as easy to install as claimed. I have limited mechanical experience so I would say anyone who can read directions and has a few tools can do this. 348575

by: thayne l.06/21/2013

Easy to follow instructions, EXCEPT they would be better if they were in bigger print for those of us who have to strain to read them in their present size. It took me about 45 minutes to make the installation. I am currently under treatment for back problems, but was still able to crawl under to zip-tie the excessive wiring length. I will enlist a friend to attach the white grounding wire, but have all vehicle lighting working in its absence. 85510

Awesome product high quality cinch to install the irony was the part I replaced that failed was installed with the black switching box exposed to the elements. Henceforth the premature failure perhaps! At first couldn't figure out why I had to remove lens assy. but makes good sense to keep that part high & dry. P.S. Toyota has discontinued their part # for that harness! Got lucky when I found you. Keep up the good work. Thanks a bunch 201642

I just installed the Curt Class 3 hitch , the job went smoothly once my neighbor came over to remove the bumper. He ended up finishing the installation by himself. That's not like me to let someone work on my stuff , but he was having so much fun. The hitch looks and works great , the wire harness was a piece of cake. I used to wire vehicles for U-Haul back in the 70's when no wire harnesses were available. Great produce , thumbs up. 184880

I ordered this wiring harness for my 2012 Toyota Tacoma after watching the installation video on YouTube. The delivery of the wiring harness from was 3 days earlier than the scheduled date. Awesome!!! The harness was exactly as advertised and installation was very easy to install just as the video showed. I would recommend etrailer to anyone who wants professional service and people that stand behind their products. 351104

Ordered this product on Monday along with a class III hitch. Arrived Thursday AM. The kit itself is well made with simple instructions. I was intimidated at the prospect of working on the electrical on my vehicle before attempting. Was not worth the stress. It took approx 20-30 mins to install with no prior experience. There was more than sufficient wire length. The T-connectors made install a snap. It works great!!! 394741

Great installation. Took 20 minutes,tops. Watch you tube videos on the installation and have your tools ready and its a snap. The harness was plenty long enough between the drivers lights and the passengers lights. The longest time of the installation was me searching for a 3/32 drill bit for the pre drill on the grounding wire. Truck lights and trailer lights worked flawlessly. 272726

Great product very easy to follow instructions. I did go ahead and buy a bracket for the plug that attaches to a hitch. I'm sure I could have bought the bracket from you but didn't think about it until it was too late. Definitely will be buying more products from you as I'm doing my own tow package. Trucks in for service right now but I'll try to take pictures when I get it back. 215709

Installed in about 1 hour, with the only problem being my not reading the instructions close enough. Don't know why people have problems on the Tacoma with the wire harness not reaching the passenger side tail light. I had almost a foot to spare. Fits great. Easy install. Appears to be a quality product. Works flawlessly. Not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for, usually. 327475

Product does exactly what is requires to operate lights on my 5x8 trailer. Brake lights, left / right turn, brake + turn, emergency flashers and side running lights all work perfectly. The etrailer agent lexis actually help me locate this package instead of a different package that was more expensive and not what I needed. Everything worked out perfect! 212115

- C55513

by: N. Hartl07/01/2015

Everything fit perfectly. I would like to recommend adding one item to make the kit even better. Like most automotive wiring, it is contained in the black plastic split corrugated tubing. Adding a piece long enough to run from the left tail light to the right tail light and for a break out for the trailer connection would make the kit complete. 208593

Easy ordering and transparent tracking info. Once I received the product, it installed in maybe 10 minutes and I'm not a too technically inclined person. The longest part was hiding wires.

Product worked great easy to install in about 45 mins with directions. Comes with all hardware and zip ties, double sided tape, and screw for the ground wire.

Bought it along with the Drawtite hitch. With etrailers video I don't think it took more than 20 minutes. My tip is that after you remove the screws from the tail lights you have to tug pretty firmly to pull the hidden tabs holding the other side. 239133

With the exception of having to use a crowbar to spread the brackets far enough to mount to the frame rails, installation went as anticipated. Kudos to Ron C. for his tip on supporting the bumper to the tailgate while installing, much easier. 114745

Curt hitch did not fit the 2012 Toyota Tacoma. The distance between the vertical plates on the hitch is 37 1/16 inches. The frame rails on the truck have an O.D. of 37 7/16 inches. So the hitch is 3/8 inch too narrow and wont fit. 180260

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

  • How to Install a Brake Controller on a Toyota T100 Pickup
  • It is possible to install a brake controller on your 1998 Toyota T100 pickup, but there are no custom fit wiring adapters available for that truck. The plug you found under the dash is probably not for a brake controller, but you could test the pins for power to be sure. One pin should have constant 12 volt power and one pin should only have power when the brake pedal is pressed. The other two pins should not have power at all.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Toyota Tacoma
  • Yes, the Curt Hitch part # 13323 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your 2015 Toyota Tacoma so I would recommend it for you. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage...

  • Dash Lights Flashing with Turn Signals Using Curt Trailer Wiring harnes # C55513
  • This sounds like a bad ground problem. Make sure that the wiring harness converter box is attached to a non-painted clean and corrosion free bare metal surface. Also make sure that the 4-Way on the vehicle and trailer sides are free of corrosion. To determine if there is something wrong in the converter box you will need a circuit tester like # 3808. You will need to test the wiring going into the converter first. If it is not correct then you know there is a problem with the vehicle...

  • Comparing Tow Ready 118496 & Curt C55513 4-Pole Trailer Wiring Harnesses for 2010 Toyota Tacoma
  • The only significant difference between the two is the rated maximum current output on each of the circuits. Tow Ready 118496 can provide up to 2.1-amps for each of the stop/turn circuits and 7.5-amps for the running light circuit. The Curt C55513 offers a 3-amp capacity for the stop/turn circuits and 5-amps for the running lights. The Tow Ready 4-Pole T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118496 and the similar Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness # C55513 are both confirmed fits for your...

  • Troubleshooting Lights Dimming When Brakes are Applied with Trailer Connected 2012 Toyota Tacoma
  • There are a couple issues you may be having. You may have a bad ground or short on your trailer wiring and when you hit the brakes the short causes an excessive drain on your vehicle battery and your lights dim. If you see the voltmeter on your dash dive when this happens then you know this is happening. You could have a weak battery or alternator, around here you can have those things tested at local car part stores. You may also just have too many lights on your trailer and there...

  • What Parts Needed to Equip 2014 Toyota Tacoma to Tow Trailer With Electric Brakes
  • The items needed to tow a trailer with electric brakes include the hitch, ball mount and hitch ball (that you already have), wiring harness, and brake controller with install kit. The linked articles on towing and brake controllers will give you some useful detail on these items and on towing techniques. For a hitch I suggest the Curt 2-inch Class III hitch # 13323; this will fit both X-Runner and non-X-Runner models. The installation instructions are attached along with a video and...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2009 Toyota Tacoma
  • I have a much better solution for you than the Curt Hitch part # E-3S. You would want to go with a custom fit hitch instead like the part # 13323 as it will bolt directly to the frame and provide you with a much stonger and easier to install hitch than the # E-3S that would require you to use all 4 mouning holes. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball...

  • Will the Tow Ready Replacement 7-Way and 4-Way Trailer Connector Fit a 2012 Toyota Tacoma
  • The Tow Ready Custom Fit Replacement 7-Way and 4-Way Trailer Connector, # 20119, will fit your 2012 Toyota Tacoma if it came with a factory 7-way. This is a replacement for the OEM 7-way trailer connector for the Tacoma. If your Tacoma did not come with a factory installed 7-way trailer connector, then we will need to go a different route. If your truck does not have any trailer wiring installed, then you will first want to install a 4-way flat trailer connector. For this, I recommend...

  • Trailer Lights Don't Work When Headlights are On
  • The problem you are having is a classic ground issue. If the ground wire to the trailer frame or the tail light grounds are not connected securely to clean, rust and paint free surfaces then when the headlights are turned the extra amperage draw for the running lights will cause all sorts of lighting issues. I would start by removing the ground wire at the trailer coupler and cleaning up the connection point and re-securing it to the trailer frame. Next I would check the ground connection...

  • Recommended Hitch and Wiring for a 2009 Toyota Tacoma Truck
  • For the 2009 Toyota Tacoma, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, # 13323. This hitch is designed to custom-fit both the standard Tacoma model and the X-Runner. This hitch is a Class III rated hitch and will have a 2x2 inch receiver hitch opening. Since your Tacoma was not wired with a towing package, then the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness, # C55513, is the wiring kit I recommend. This harness will connect to your vehicle using already existing wiring plugs located in...

This is a superbly engineered brake controller that is a snap to use. Installation method will depend on whether or not your Tacoma has a factory-installed 7-way trailer connector at the rear bumper.

  • Parts Needed to Install a Brake Controller and 7-Way in a 2013 Toyota Tacoma
  • You are on the right track. To install a brake controller in your 2013 Toyota Tacoma will first require a 4-way like the part # C55513 and then the # ETBC7 to convert it to a 7-way so that you can install the # 90885 brake controller. There isn't an plug in adapter available for your truck. To prevent the trailer from draining your truck battery you can unplug the trailer connector or you can install an isolation solenoid like part # TR118665.

  • Will Curt Bumper-Mount 2-Inch Trailer Hitch E-3S Fit Step Bumper on 2011 Toyota Tacoma
  • According to my contact at Curt, their Bumper-Mount 2-Inch Trailer Hitch # E-3S will fit the step bumper on your 2011 Toyota Tacoma since this is a general-purpose universal-fit item. Installation hardware is included. The hitch mounting holes are spaced at 6-inches apart on center (the smaller set of holes) and on 8-3/4-inches apart on center (the larger set) as shown in the linked photo. If the spacing of the mounting holes does not match your bumper then you can drill new holes in...

  • Using Optronics # TLL9RK Trailer Light Kit on Trailer Towed by 2005 Toyota Tacoma
  • The # TLL9RK kit you mentioned is designed to be used to replace rear stop/turn/ taillights and the wiring on a small trailer. The kit features a 4-pole flat trailer connector designed for use with a 4-pole connector installed on a vehicle. If your Tacoma has a factory installed 4-pole connector, it should be converted already. If not, the Curt # C55513 trailer wiring harness would be a plug and play option that would plug inline with the factory connections behind the drivers and passenger...

  • Parts Needed to Install a 7-way Trailer Connector and Tow a Trailer with a 2009 Toyota Tacoma
  • Yes, you can install a 7-way trailer connector on your 2009 Toyota Tacoma. There's a couple of options depending on your trailer. First you're going to need to start with a 4-way flat connector like you've already found. I suggest the Curt # C55513 which plugs into your truck's wiring either behind the taillights or the rear bumper. Once you have the 4-way, if your trailer does not have brakes you can use an adapter, # 37185, to go from the 4-way to provide a 7-way. However, installing...

  • Since you have LED taillights you are going to want to go with a trailer wiring harness that does not draw amperage from the actual taillight circuits unlike the # C55513. Since a custom wiring kit isn't available for your vehicle you would want the part # 119190KIT.

If you truck doesn't have the factory 4-way, but has a factory 7-way, you would use an adapter like the Pollak 7 Pole to 4 Way Connector Adapter # PK12716.

  • Can a Trailer with a 5-Way Attach to a Vehicle with a 4-Way
  • A 5-way from a trailer will attach directly to a 4-way like what is on the part # C55513 that you referenced. The fifth pin will just hang off of the edge of the 4-way and wouldn't be active. If you are looking for an adapter to go from a 4-way on your vehicle to a 5-way you would need the part # 20036.

  • Parts Needed to Re-Wire European Trailer to RV-Style Trailer Wiring
  • Thank you for the photo of your trailer's European wiring. You will be best served by replacing the Euro style connectors on your trailer to the RV-type. We do not offer Euro style wiring harness kits for vehicles. The part you referenced, adapter # 118710, adapts a European vehicle to a 4-pole type connector but does not adapt the trailer to match U.S. wiring. Euro wiring has every function on a separate wire; while here in the U.S. trailer wiring combines the stop and turn signals. The...
