2016 Mitsubishi Outlander - T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector

  • Custom Fit
  • Trailer Hitch Wiring
  • 4 Flat
  • Powered Converter
  • Tekonsha

Quickly and easily install a 4-way trailer connector on your Mitsubishi Outlander with this custom wiring harness. T-One connector plugs directly into existing wiring. Powered ModuLite reduces strain on wiring system.


  • Provides a 4-way flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights
    • Compatible with 5-pole, 6-pole and 7-pole adapters (sold separately)
  • Connects quickly and easily
    • Locate connection points in rear cargo area
    • Plug in T-connector
    • Run hot lead to car battery
  • Includes ModuLite to ensure that your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailer
    • Powered module connects directly to battery to avoid overloading vehicle's electrical system
  • Constructed of 16-gauge bonded wire
  • Comes with dust cap for 4-way flat connector


  • Maximum amperage:
    • Stop/turn lights: 2.1 amps per circuit
    • Tail lights: 5.6 amps per circuit
  • 1-Year limited warranty


This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located behind the driver's-side and passenger's-side interior trim panels in your rear cargo area. Once you've plugged in the T-connector, run the hot lead up to your car battery. Connect the lead to the included fuse holder, and then connect the fuse holder to the positive terminal on your battery and insert the provided fuse.

Once installation is complete, the 4-way flat 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.

ModuLite Powered Tail Light Converter

A ModuLite power module is built into this T-One 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 your trailer. This power module functions as a tail light converter to combine 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.

With a ModuLite, your trailer's lights will be powered without overloading your vehicle's electrical system. Because the module draws power directly from your car's battery and bypasses the electrical routes that are used by a basic wiring harness, there is virtually no draw on your tail light circuits.

Quickly and easily install a 4-way trailer connector on your vehicle with this custom wiring harness. T-One connector plugs directly into existing wiring. Powered ModuLite reduces strain on wiring system.


So about a year ago I bought a reciever hitch, receiver cover,euro style ball and wiring for my 2010 Camry to tow a 4x8 foldable trailer for powersports......Installation was straight forward and dedicated an afternoon for install.....Directions for the products was easy to follow for both products.... so far the wiring is just as I installed it and the hitch is holding up great, you can barely notice that I have a hitch back there. I think it blends in nicely....I anticipate many years of worry free towing....
Customer service is top notch also ????

With the exception of the hitch cover cracking and dry rotting where it pivots, everything else is great.If I had to do it over again I wouldnt change a thing.....Im extremely pleased with the products I purchased from

Plug and play. Product just as described. 2nd time using very happy with my order

2013 Toyota Venza

Easy to install the hitch. WIRING WAS EASY BUT TAKES A LITTLE LONGER TO INSTALL. E-Trailer video helps with wiring.


Plug and play! Worked perfectly

2018 MitsubishiOutlander

Easy to install, about 30 minutes from start to finish. Instruction video was easy to follow along with.

2009 Toyota Venza

Perfect fit.


good product, good service, fast delivery. thanks.


worked as listed

2018 MitsubishiOutlander

Ordered the tenkosha plug and play trailer harness for 2018 outlander with curt hitch .both fit perfect and work well this far ,been about a year . Seem like a good product ,order was easy ,came timely ,and was the right product ,price was good . I call it a win


It was good fit for my car, good video for support .

2012 Toyota Venza

It took us a while to install because we have little background on pulling trim panels off and knowing where to find things. But, we watched the YouTube video and with the instructions we were able to install the wire harness with little to no problem.

Everything is working fine! Thank you!
Amy H - 06/12/2018


Installed perfectly and works every time we use it!


The item worked OK only once, the first time. I have done some testing. There is continuity from battery to unit. There is continuity from unit's ground to trailer plugin. The lights on the car work fine with the unit's wiring: it gets feed from car controls. The unit is fully sealed so I cannot test continuity from unit to plugin, other than mentioned ground connection. Visually the wires from unit to trailer plugin are fine. I highly suspect the unit itself and not the wiring. I have tried the suggestions online to unplug power to it for some time to no avail. Needless to say, poor rating.

2011 Toyota Camry

I had an excellent experience with your company. The product came on time, was complete, and the online tutorial was compelety accurate and helpful!


I couldn't give it 5 stars because I haven't put the wiring harness on yet, but it sure got here two days. I certainly appreciate that.

Working great. Easy to install, no problems whatsoever.
DON M - 04/02/2018


This is my 2nd trailer hitch from e-Trailer. I have a small trailer I use to haul brush, furniture & my recumbent bike. I was very pleased with my first hitch, but after getting a new car, I needed another hitch. The quality products and video instructions make it straight forward to install. My kit required a wire to run from the back of the vehicle to the battery in front. The video outlined the best path to route the wire to avoid hot parts or areas where the wire could be damaged. The connection at the battery included a fuse to prevent a electrical fire if somehow the wire got damaged, like in an accident. When I ordered the 2nd hitch, I received an email letting me know the hitch I selected was no longer available within 3 hours of my order. They suggested another hitch to fit my vehicle. Whenever the need for another hitch arises I know the only place I will go, etrailer.


My wiring harness has humbly done its work without complaining. A reliable technology


Installing hitch only took 20 minutes
can hook the wiring power to the plug on passenger side. Lift up cup holder cover to access power . You don’t need to run to battery,

2011 Toyota Camry

Fit my 2011 Toyota Camry perfectly. I wish that the ground cable would have been slightly longer to reach the factory ground. That being said, there is plenty of space to attach the ground with the supplied self tapping screw. Installation was simple, the only time consuming part is running the main power under the car to the battery (not an issue for hybrid models where battery is in the trunk). Everything tucked away nicely.

A year later this harness is working flawlessly. Being able to store the harness end in the trunk out of the weather has been nice, it looks as new as the day I bought it. I tow with it once a week at least.
Ray G - 06/06/2017


The wiring harness was straight forward to install.

1998 Toyota Camry

This worked great. The only thing that was a little bit of a pain was to run the power wire to the battery. I ran it out under the car attached to brake and feul.line area from trunk to battery. It does work good i have a 98 Camry also that didn't need the power wire but at time I have issue with the 98 blowing tail light fuses. This one works great on the same trailer it is a 2 place snow mobile trailer. This one has side lights also

Toyota Venza

Works well but not particularly easy to install and directions were of little use. I tried to find a place to fish the power lead through the firewall for an hour but gave up and drilled a hole below and to the left of the steering column. Also, the directions for the Venza say to remove the cargo attachments and plastic in the back. It isn't necessary and doesn't actually help... just remove the black trays and the small access panels for the tail lights. You can reach down and disconnect the wiring harness but it helps to pull the harness away from the tab that secures it to the chassis.

2007 Toyota Camry

This kit made the wiring easy. No question about what went where or how to get it there. I can't wait to get a trailer for my canoe to hook it up. Thanks.

The wiring has worked flawlessly. You have great products.
Don R - 01/18/2015

Toyota Camry

I purchased a light kit for my Camry and loved it, worked great without putting a load on the car wiring. So when I needed lights for my Venza I went back to etrailer and it was promptly sent to me. This one however had an issue. When I notified etrailer they helped me trouble shoot and when the box was the problem, promptly replaced it. Very happy with the with the service.


Wiring harness fit the vehicle very well. My only suggestion is that a bracket should be shipped with either the wiring harness or the trailer hitch for the external mount of the four-wire connector. The wiring instructions suggest that the four-wire connector be stored in the trunk and extended out of the hatch when using with a trailer. The harness is made to go through the knockout on the driver's side and connect via a bracket on the trailer hitch. The installer just needs to squeeze the four-wire connector to push it through the rubber knockout opening, and then slit the rubber knockout to fit the flat wire of the four-wire connector.

  • Installation Process for T-One Harness with ModuLite part # 118482
    The ModuLite box on T-One Harness part # 118482, requires one wire to be ran up to the battery for power. There are no easy-to-access or substantial power sources at the back of most vehicles, so one power wire will have to be run up to the battery. Other than that, the harness is extremely simple to install. The brake, running light, turn and hazard signals are all picked up for snapping connectors in place between the tail lights and the vehicle. The ground wire, white wire with eye...

It plugs into the taillight connectors of your vehicle so yours not having the electric hatch opener would not be an issue.

  • How to Run the Power Wire for a Trailer Harness up to the Battery on a 2010 Toyota Camry
    If you have access to a jack and jack stands, it may be easiest to run the power wire underneath the car then up into the engine bay. Lift up the carpet covering the trunk well. You should be able to find some black rubber grommets or plugs. Poke a hole or cut a slit in one of these then you can run the wire underneath the car, then up to battery. You can also feed the wire underneath the carpeting and door sill covers and run it up to the firewall, then through into the engine bay. This...

    You do need to run the wire up front and connect to the battery. There is not a suitable power source at the rear. You can run the wire underneath the carpet and trim moldings up to the firewall then into the engine bay, but this does require removing and re-installing a lot of interior trim pieces.

  • Routing Trailer Wiring Harness # 118482 Power Wire to the Battery on a 2011 Toyota Camry
    When routing the power wire to the battery in trailer wiring harness, # 118482, you will want to avoid any areas that may pinch the wire, causing it to break. Any moving components like the suspension can potentially pinch the wire, so avoid moving parts. You will also want to avoid parts that get hot enough to melt the wire. Exhaust components as an example get very hot and can melt the insulation. However, on the 2011 Toyota Camry, the battery should be in the trunk and you will not...

    If you are receiving 13.3 volts on the taillight circuit going into the converter box and only 6.6 volts coming out, then this would indeed indicate a bad converter box.

    You can just use 1 power wire for both the 4- to 7-Way adapter # 30717 and the T-one harness # 118482. You would use the power wire and 40 amp circuit breaker but between that power wire and the converter box on harness # 118482 you would still use the in line yellow fuse holder and fuse. On the adapter be sure to ground the white wire to the frame or the connector will not work.

An install on a Venza is shown in the linked video. If your Venza's 4-pole trailer harness shows 12V output on all three circuits all the time then the module has failed. The output circuits should have voltage only when the stop/turn/tail light functions are activated on the car.
