Video Transcript for Tekonsha Wiring - Trailer Connectors - 119130 Review

Today we are going to review part number 119130. This is the tow ready upgraded taillight converter with the four-way flat trailer connector. Now, this part will provide a four-way flat trailer connector at the back of your tow vehicle to power your tow trailers signal lights. This will work with most LED incandescent and standard bulbs on the vehicles or on the trailers. It is designed to work with most vehicles multi flex wiring systems for lighting and it will also help prevent feedback from the trailer to the vehicle system to protect the tow vehicles electrical system. Now, on this end you'll notice, is the 60 inch length of bonded wire that has the four-way on the end that connects to your trailer, to your trailer.

You'll notice this does include the integrated dust cover that when you're not plugged in, you can put that over there and protects those terminals from any damage or from the elements. On the other side you'll see the wires that need to be connected to your tow vehicle. They measure for about 18 inches long. And what you want to do is we would recommend to always use a circuit tester and you want to test each wire for what it does so when you hook it up, you hook it up correctly. You don't always want to go color to color. You want to look it up to what that circuit does.

With this long green wire, this is designed to hook to your, and they are all marked here on the converter itself, this is what a right turn signal. And then the other wires, the white wire with the eyelid connector on it, that is for the ground. You want to connect this to a good clean ground. The remaining wires, your brown would be for your taillight connection. Your yellow would be for your left turn signal and the red wire would be for your brake light. Once you get that all connected then you would be able to put this in to your trailer and supply the lights on your trailer.

A few specs on this. The maximum stop and turn light circuit is 2.1 amps per side. And the maximum on the taillight circuit is 7.5 amps. But that should do it for the review on part number 119130. This is the tow ready upgraded taillight converter with the four-way flat trailer connector.

Upgraded Tail Light Converter with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector - 119130

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (35 Customer Reviews)

Adapts import and domestic vehicles with separate turn and stop lights (3-Wire System) to standard trailer tail light wiring (2-Wire System)

by:
2000 Volkswagen New Beetle

The Tow Ready Tail Light Converter, 119130, is perfect for my needs. I have a trailer with LED lighting, so the the amperage draw is fairly low. Using the 119130 converter, the @$#$#[email protected]^^ computerized lighting system in the tow vehicle is not "confused" by the additional load, as well as converting the 3 wire to a 2-wire trailer system. I was concerned that I might need a separately powered converter to make things work, but that's not the case. The LED trailer lights are the way to go.

Wiring is simple, with connections labeled right on the unit, and the leads should be long enough for almost all situations. Be sure to find a real metal ground location, and scrape the paint to get to bare metal. I know that the screw in the hole will give a decent ground, but I like to avoid weird issues that can surface if a ground is poor. Various tap type connectors make stripping and taping a thing of the past. Happy towing!


Comments
The converter has performed flawlessly. Great product.

1983 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham

Converter arrived in 3 days ,, It took 20 minutes to wire it in and route my wires, very simple to in stall and works perfectly. I was at a standstill until i got this, Thank you very much. On the road again



by:

Everything works perfectly , now I can tow a US trailer with my original european trailer hitch and plug - I did not test the second wiring yet which should allow me to tow my european trailer with an US vehicle , but I am sure it will work the same way if I wire the plugs correctly .
Unfortunately I did not make any pictures , but the instructions coming along with the order are very clear and easy
I appreciate the information and will shop with the guys again

I needed a converter to modify the wiring from my motor home to my tow vehicle hookup. Etrailer had exactly what I needed to convert my separate brake and turn signal lights on the MH to one lead to hook up to the tow vehicle. Easy to navigate web site, good communication, fast shipping, exactly what I needed. Easy to make the hookup on my MH and works as advertised !!! Have bought here before and always a satisfied customer. Will see for any of my future needs !!!



by:

Product was used to separate turn signal from brake on an equipment trailer. It worked just fine. I hard wired mine into the trailer circuit but it comes with the 4 wire harness if you are wiring it to the tow vehicle.

Michael H answered my questions concisely and accurately.

Excellent on all counts!



by:
2005 Dodge Ram Pickup

Worked like a charm. Fixed the problem I was having with a 3 wire system going to a 2 wire system.



by:
2013 Volkswagen Beetle

I'm pleased to see that all of the wire leads are more than long enough to make for a simple install.

I didn't get the unit with separate 12V power as the load will be minimal.

So here it is. The unit is for my new "Winky the White Cat" that sits on the rear shelf of my car. If you never heard of it, you are just too young. :-)

Winky's eyes flash with the turn signals, and to get full effect I needed to convert to a standard turn/stop system. Plus, I can unplug Winky and pull a small utility trailer with low draw LED lights.

Solved my problems.


Comments
The product is continuing to be functional for both the Winky cat and my motorcycle trailer with LEDs. Still happy!

  • Diagnosing 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 7-Way not Functioning Trailer Lights
    Since you have tried the trailer on your wifes car and it works it is safe to assume that you have eliminated the trailer from the equation as being the problem. The first thing I would do is test the 7-way at the rear of your 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 and make sure that there is voltage in all of the correct places. Check out the picture I attached that shows the standard way a 7-way is wired. It is possible that a previous owner of your Ram wired up the 7-way incorrectly and that is why you...

  • Trailer Lights on a Cargo Carrier Flash Rapidly with Brake Applied on a 2008 Harley Ultra Classic
    It sounds like the lights are hyperflashing. This normally occurs with LED lights. You can try moving the grounds for the lights to the carrier. If the connector on the bike is set up for separate turn signals and brake lights but the lights you added are designed for a combined brake and turn signal, that could be the problem.

  • Where on 2011 Toyota Tacoma to Access Reverse Lamp Circuit
    I'm not sure which LED lamps you were considering, but a 4-pole or pin flat trailer connector doesn't carry a reverse light circuit. You'd need to tap directly into the wiring harness that feeds the vehicle taillights. If you access the area directly behind the taillights, you should easily be able to locate the wire feeding the reverse lamp. Tap the power feed for your LED reverse lights into that circuit. If your Tacoma has the factory 7-way connector, the center pin is connected to...

  • Combining Brake Light and Turn Signal Circuits on a Freightliner Dump Truck Trailer Connector
    If you are wanting to combine the brake light and turn signal circuits on the tow vehicle side trailer connector you can pretty much use any converter for that including # 119130. On the input side the green wire will go to the right turn signal, yellow goes to the left turn signal, and red goes to the brake light circuit. If you do not need to wire in the brown wire for the running lights, since yours are working properly, you can ground that brown wire with the white wire. On the output...

    You have not done anything wrong with the Upgraded Tail Light Converter with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 119130.

    I would advise against splicing into the vehicle wiring on your 2010 Nissan Altima.

On the 7-Way wiring, locate the wire for the left turn and brake and attach it to the yellow wire on the converter input side. Connect the wire from right turn and stop to the green wire input side.

  • Can Separate Amber Turn Signals be Added to a Trailer
    Trailers in the United States have what is called a 2 wire system. One wire has the running lights (tail lights) for the whole trailer. The other circuit (one per side) is brake lights and turn signals. All you need to do is separate out the brake signal from the turn signal using a special converter, # 118158. Please note this converter will only work with incandescent lights and not LED lights. If you need to have LED lights then the only other option like you said is to run wires independently...

  • Repairing T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118325 for 1999 Ford Ranger
    I would first start by testing the wires on the T-connector with a circuit tester like the Quickee, # 3808, to make sure that each is functioning as it should. If there is an issue with any of the wires, you will need to replace the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, # 118325. If all functions are working, you can use the Upgraded Taillight Converter, # 119130, to complete your wiring harness. The wires on this converter will just need to be connect to the wires on the T-connector, color for color.

You can then cut off the 4-Way end of this harness after it is installed and attach the wires to the light bar wires.

Your truck uses a combined wiring system, so the converter box would be providing circuit protection to isolate the truck wiring from any short circuits that might occur in the trailer wiring. To install, the green wire taps into the right turn circuit, the yellow wire into the left, the brown into the taillights and the red and the while would be grounded to the truck.

This will provide you with a 4-Way connector to connect with and power a trailer's basic signal lights. I really like the Tekonsha harnesses in particular because we get far fewer troubleshooting...
