This revolutionary wiring method makes it fast, easy, and safe to add a 4-way connector to your vehicle so you can power your trailer's lights. Unlike traditional tail light wiring harnesses, which either splice into your vehicle's wiring or plug into designated ports in your factory harness, this system bypasses your vehicle's wiring entirely. Just clamp the intuitive sensors onto the individual wires of your OEM tail light harness and let the ZCI system do the rest.


Zero-Contact Interface Sensors

Sensor

Each zero-contact interface (ZCI) sensor included with this harness is able to read the current that travels through the wire it is clamped onto. Upon sensing the specific modulation of that wire, a signal can be sent along the wire that connects the sensor to the included 4-way flat trailer connector. That signal is then transmitted through the connector to activate the appropriate function on your trailer lights.


Universal, Worry-Free Design

No Splicing, Cutting, or Connecting to Factory Wiring

Because the ZCI sensors can read the signals sent through your vehicle's wires just by clamping onto them, no cutting or splicing is necessary. The system completely bypasses all of your vehicle's wiring. As a result, your trailer's lights will be powered without overloading your vehicle's electrical system. And there is no chance of damaging feedback either.


When using this ZCI harness, you don't have to worry about voiding your warranty, nor do you need to be concerned about any potentially damaging errors on your part if you're not an experienced do-it-yourselfer. And if you have a vehicle that doesn't allow certain modifications - like a leased car or truck - you can install this harness and remove it later with no obvious alteration to the vehicle.


Maximum Compatibility

This wiring harness is universal. You can use it on any vehicle that operates on a 12V, negative ground system. Because installation is so simple, you can easily remove the unit and transfer it to another car or truck at any time.


In addition, the ZCI sensors are able to read the signals sent by multiplex wiring systems and systems with pulse width modulation (PWM) and low-side-switched wiring, making the harness compatible with nearly all automotive wiring systems. This unit also works with both standard incandescent tail light bulbs and LED bulbs.


Built-In Tail Light Converter

Most trailers run on a 2-wire system - wherein the brake and turn signals are carried on a single wire. Many vehicles, however, are built with separate brake and turn signals. This type of system is referred to as a 3-wire system. If your vehicle operates on a 3-wire system, it will need to be converted so that it will be compatible with the wiring system of your trailer. This is done by adding a tail light converter to your wiring setup to combine the brake and turn signal functions of your automobile so that they run on a single wire to properly activate your trailer's tail lights.


This ZCI unit has a tail light converter built in to ensure proper functioning with any vehicle that operates on a 3-wire system. If your car has a 2-wire system and therefore does not need a converter, don't worry. The method of installing the sensors will take into account the wiring configuration of your vehicle so that only the necessary sensors are used, making sure the appropriate signals are sent back to the 4-way.


Installation

This universal harness connects to your vehicle's tail light wiring harness. To connect, just follow the included instructions. There are 4 ZCI sensors included. Each sensor has a colored label on it. Depending on your application, you will need to connect all or some of these sensors to the factory wires indicated in the instructions.


To get the power necessary to operate, the harness must be connected to a 12V power source. The included installation kit provides the hot lead required to connect this module to your car battery. When all connections have been made, connect the hot lead to the black wire on the ZCI power module and run the other end of the lead up to your car battery. Connect the hot lead to the included fuse holder, and then connect the fuse holder to the positive terminal on your battery. Then insert the included 15-amp fuse into the fuse holder.


Once installation is complete, the 4-way connector will be stowed in an out-of-the-way location either within your cargo area or beneath your vehicle, near the trailer hitch. If you choose to mount the connector near your hitch, a mounting bracket (sold separately) is recommended to keep the connector secure.


It is also recommended that you use a small amount of grease on all electrical connections on the 4-pole connector to help prevent corrosion.


Surface Mount Technology

Each ZCI wiring harness is built 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.


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? SMT components 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.

The product works well for the most part. The only issue is that it doesn't trigger the brake lights on my Kendon motorcycle trailer.


Comments
Because you have a motorcycle trailer and not a standard trailer, you will need a converter to separate the circuits of the Tekonsha harness from a 2-way circuit to a 3-way circuit. To do that, use the Curt 2-To-3-Wire Tail Light Converter, part # C56196

I love my hitch, but the installation of this harness for my Audi Q5 was a huge disappointment. I think it's absurd that the wiring has to hang out of the hatch. I ended up buying something different from the installer that could store UNDER THE BUMPER where it should be. Since the box was misplaced, I was unable to return it. I'll maybe try to sell --- or just throw it away. It was an expensive mistake.

I used it on a 2017 Chevy bolt (think Chevy discurages people from installing a trailer hitch) since it did not come with any trailer hook up instructions. I think it gave my instaler a work out since he never did one before, but despite the cost I think it was the right way to go instead off cutting into wires etc. I dont use a trailer that much, but it has worked absolutely fine. Only problem has been that I think installer disturbed a wire hook up to a parking light (that is only needed-if lift gate is open) so he has not gotten around fixing that since he has to get into the trunk inards to do it.

Super easy to install on my 2013 MINI Cooper Coupe, no cutting or wire splicing needed. The MINI tailights incorporate both LEDs and regular incandescent bulbs and have a somewhat convoluted wiring harness, but I had no issues and everything worked as it should out of the box. Recommended.

Installed on a 2018 Audi Q5. Installation was not easy, partially due to working with the panels on the Audi, partially due to the module being hard to configure properly. After 20+ hours working on it, I got it to a point where it correctly recognizes 'most' signals. For whatever reason, the left turn signal does not work, regardless of how many times I adjust the connections and reset the module. It was a cheap solution that gets me 80% of the way there. I'll also note that there is little/no online reference material available, beyond the installation videos that etrailer posted; this makes troubleshooting nearly impossible.


Comments
I recommend viewing the video install that we have on a 2018 Audi Q5. Be sure to follow the steps for a 2 wire system in the manual. When one of the functions is not working you would need to start vehicle and turn all functions off: Tail and head lights, brake and turn. Initiate ZCI learn mode by placing 15 amp fuse into fuse holder. Then you would active each function for 5 seconds. The hatch does need to be closed when testing the harness.

Great wiring harness, does NOT require and cutting what so ever. Sal FROM customer service is very helpful. I would recommend for a friend to help to make the install go faster. Over all great, dealer said I would need a special computer program for the Harness to work properly, that is incorrect. Just follow the instructions that are included and you will not regret your investment. Car 2018 Audi Q5

The trailer hitch and wiring assembly have worked flawlessly. After calling several local installation outfits and receiving estimates of $2,000+ I decided to install myself. I have a little mechanical experience but this was the first hitch and wiring harness for me. This is my wife's X5 so I was a little nervous about popping rivets and pulling the rear bumper cover off, but eTrailer has excellent step by step video instructions by model year. The order included replacement rivets and detailed instructions. They could not have made this any easier. I really took my time and completed the job in about 5 hours. The final install looks professional and clean. The no-splice wiring harness is amazing - worth every penny. Tools: I was able to easily pop off the existing plastics rivets, and installed the new rivets (included from eTrailer) with pliers pretty easily - you may want to borrow a plastic rivet gun from your local hardware or auto parts store. On the X5 your have to cut a small notch out of the underside of the bumper cover. I happen to have a Dremmel which worked well. You may be able to use a razor blade. The plastic is not that thick. Pictures are attached. Thanks etrailer!

2012 VW GTI (autobahn edition) Installation (DSG) I had some small issues and hiccups along the way, so in order help out since I couldn't seem to find vehicle specific help, here is what I did. I did buy the CURT 4-way flat connector tester (Item #126) first to make my life easier when testing. It helps. Buy it. First - start by removing the cargo floor carpet and pulling down the drivers side wall carpet. I did find it necessary to take the moulding trim off the top portion of where the hatch cover locks in, along with the rear seat belt guide trim so I could run the wires to the battery cleanly. There is a few star bolts holding the trim alongside the rear seats when folded down, so just do a search if can’t find it (one cover has to be popped off) Second - Wiring. This was a little bit of a guess, as I have 3 wires, and my meter didn’t seem to be helpful since they were so small and close together. Here’s what works (drivers side): - “Stop” module clips over the black/red wire - Middle brown wire isn’t used - “Left” turn signal module clips over the green/black wire - Passenger side right turn signal clips over the green/black wire - I screwed the ground right into a side structure panel Running the battery cable was the bigger time suck. - Stated above I had the drivers side rear panel trim and carpet removed, and I continued removing the front/rear drivers floor sill trim. I ran the black wire along the current loom and tucked it under the floor carpet. - I then ran it behind the hood latch and towards the top of the metal foot rest, keeping it behind the carpet - This is where you get to the firewall. There is a piece of foam. Remove it. Now you’ll see a rubber grommet where the clutch pedal would go through if you have a standard. I took that out, drilled a small hole to run the wire through that I attached the wire to a metal hanger to fish up and to the right of the battery box. Fish it up, grab it, and pull it through. - Slide the grommet back into place (your wire would have been already through it) and snap it on. - Make your connection to the battery and follow initiation instructions.

Works, could not get lights to work 100% correct but close enough to use the trailer. Brake lights are on when running lights, and 4way hazard lights don’t work. But turn signals work and brakes dim the trailer lights so good enough. Audi A3 etron

This kit works perfectly! A reasonably straightforward installation, though not for a DYI'er who is uncomfortable ripping into the trim and lighting wiring harness of their vehicle. A reasonably accurate wiring diagram is very helpful, but not necessary because trial and error works well with Hall sensors used in this kit (i.e. no cutting and splicing wire is required). Once installed, the trailer lighting load is easily handled by the power module without feedback to the vehicle lighting control circuit, although my setup does not interface with a trailer brake controller so I cannot judge full performance. One hint - do not loose the heavy stock reference card that reminds one of the programming routine, While performing other electrical work on my car needing battery disconnection, I can never remember the programming sequence for the trailer lighting controller. Not to worry, though, the product support site has the info.

The Tekonsha wiring harness was a bit difficult to install, as the clip-on connections are a somewhat bulky to fit in my Tesla Model 3's tight spaces. The good news is: they work as promised like a charm with our tiny camp trailer's lights. In truth, I have only had to use them once, but cannot imagine that any unforeseen problems would occur with them in the future.

Installed on 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with no tow package. Install was kind of a P.I.T.A. But worth doing on your own to avoid the stealership. Not too much electrical knowhow required, as the black wire on Jeep tail lights are all ground. Running the power cable was the most difficult part, and required removing the interior rear quarter panel, which I managed to break a plastic clip. Would not recommend this on a Jeep, as there is no simple way to install this on the interior of the vehicle since the tail lights are wired 100% outside of the car. I’d say skip if you are looking into this for a Jeep, and wait for an OEM trailer harness to come out from mopar.

I installed the kit on a 2016 Audi A6. I could not find any videos for this car but did watch the video on the Audi A4 which was helpful. Audis are not easy to get information on and are sometimes difficult to work on. The A4 info was very helpful in accessing the wiring but from there it was trial and error in which wire to use for each function. The sensor is very easy to install although on the A6 it is very cramped to work on. IT TOOK ME CONSIDERABLE LONGER TO DO THE INSTALLITION THAN ESTIMATED. This was not due to the kit but to wire identification and some problems with the wiring on my trailer I hAVE NO PROBLEM WITH THE QUALITY AND OPERATION OF THE KIT. For accomplishing the job I rate it 5 stars. I first saw this kit a couple months ago and though it quite expensive (at that time $xxx +) At the time I ordered it the price was just over $xxx. The Audi is a very high tech car so I decided to pay this to avoid the possible trouble a direct wiring job could incur. The product was shipped promptly but before I received it the price had dropped to $xxx. This does not make me feel good about the value of my purchase. I like your web site and the easy of using it. Sorry I have no photos.

Combine this kit with a couple of YouTube videos (Thank you U-haul), the installation isn't difficult. Do purchase a circuit tester with an attachment that wraps around a wire and pierces the insulation. The cheap circuit tester that comes with the kit is worthless.

The wiring system works remarkably well. I was skeptical of a system that only parallels the original wiring harness instead of a hard connection but it works great and saved me from having to cut in to my cars wiring. I highly recommend this system. The installation video is a bit lacking in a few details but most handy people should be able to figure out the routing through the car body without great difficulty.

We own an Audi Q5 and we had the unit professionally install at our local garage. I am disappointed in the way the unit performed. We used it to pull a small uhaul trailer, and the lights worked only spardically. The tail lights worked most of the time, but the signal lights seemed to only work at random. For this emergency trip it was adequate, but I would not reccomend this product.


Comments
Thank you for leaving a review! If you are able to, checking the wiring connections and the ground wire may all be all you need to fix the issue. You will want to make sure the ground wire has a direct and clean connection and that other connections are secure. If you reference the install video on this page it may be useful as a visual aid as to where on your vehicle to check for the connections.

    The 119251 is not available separately; it is simply the harness part of the ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness w/ 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector and Installation Kit # 119250KIT. The other part of this kit is the circuit tester which makes the install an easier process. The ZCI kit is the best option for your '09 X5 because it does not require any type of splicing to install in your vehicle (ZCI: Zero Contact Interface); the sensors clamp onto your wiring. I have added a link...

  • Installing the ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness on a 2018 Ford EcoSport
    It's a little odd that the wiring for the ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness # 119250KIT isn't long enough for your 2018 Ford EcoSport. I think the issue that you are running into is that you are probably trying to mount the converter in the middle of your vehicle when it would be more beneficial to install the converter on either side of your EcoSport as the Yellow and Green wires for the turn functions have 95" - 97" leads so they can easily reach to the other side of your vehicle....

  • Installing Tekonsha ZCI Wiring Harness on 2019 Audi A5
    The best way to locate the correct wires behind the tail lights of your 2019 Audi A5 to use for the Tekonsha ZCI Wiring Harness # 119250KIT is to simply test them for function using the included circuit tester. With that being said I was able to track down some wire functions on your Audi A5 that should hopefully at least guide this process. It looks like the wire that carries the left turn signal behind the tail light is gray in color. The wire for the left side running lights is green...

  • Connecting Wires of ZCI Trailer Wiring Kit to 2013 Audi A6
    Your 2013 Audi A6 has trailer wiring circuits that are combined what use pulse width modulation on the same wire. So according to Tekonsha when you install the # 119250KIT you need to attach the yellow wire of the kit to the brake/tail/left turn wire on the vehicle and the green to the brake/tail/right turn wire. The brown and red wires of the kit are not used.

  • Does Wire Have to Run to Vehicle Battery When Installing ZCI Trailer Wiring Kit
    I can not recommend you do that since that battery is going to drain pretty quickly and leave you without trailer lighting and you'll have no way of knowing while driving. I know it seems like a hassle but running the power wire up to the vehicle battery is the only safe way we can recommend you install the part # 119250KIT in your 2017 Audi A3. I attached a help article that has tips on this process for you to check out as well.

    For two wire systems like your 2008 Inifiniti FX45 Tekonsha says to wire up the ZCI kit part # 119250KIT to the vehicle wiring by using the yellow wire ran to the left turn/brake signal wire, the green to the right turn/brake wire, and the brown to either of the tail light/headlight circuits. You didn't mention exactly how you wired your vehicle to the system but I'd verify that you wired it all up like that.

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring for 2019 VW SportWagen
    The best trailer wiring harness available for your 2019 VW Golf SportWagen is the Tekonsha ZCI Circuit Protected Harness # 119250KIT, as it uses unique zero-contact sensors to identify the current flowing through each wire by simply clamping on to it.

This, along with the powered converter that will power the trailer lights (instead of using power from the actual...

  • Does Trailer Wiring for 2017 Mercedes GLE 350 use 2 or 3 Wire Wiring
    Your 2017 Mercedes Benz GLE has separate turn signals from the brake lights so you'd use the 3 wire setup when installing the wiring kit part # 119250KIT.
