Video Transcript for Review of Tekonsha Wiring - Trailer Connectors - 119178KIT

Today, we're going to take a look at the upgraded circuit protected taillight converter hardwire kit with the four-way connector and the circuit tester. Now, this part will adapt a three-wire system on your towing vehicle to work with a two-wire system on your trailer. Basically, they will adapt any importer domestic automobile that has the separate turn and stop lights, which is a three-wire system to a standard trailer taillight wiring which is a two-wire system. In a three-wire system, a separate wire is used to carry each of the stop, turn, and running light functions to the taillight. And on most trailers, the stop and turn signal functions are sent through the same wire.This kit will give you short circuit protection, safeguards itself and the tow vehicle against any harmful electrical shorts or miss-wire situations. The circuit will automatically reset once the module cools, and it does work with trailers that have either LED or incandescent bulbs and it will work with most multiplex wiring system.

The kit will include everything laid out here on the table, the circuit protective taillight converter right here. If you notice, it does have the bonded wire with the four-way that runs out the back to plug into your trailer and that's about 60 inches long. It does have this nice integrated four-way cover that will protect the terminals when it's not plugged in, protects it from the elements or from any damage.Now the wire pigtails on this converter, they would measure about 18 inches long. And these are what will tap into the taillight wires of your vehicle. And they do include in this kit a nice circuit tester because when you go to tap your wires in, you want to test the wires for the function.

You don't want to always just connect color to color, you want to test the function and then connect it to the function for that wire. In this case, your white wire will be your ground that has the eyelid on it, so that's easy. You just ground it. Your ground wire would be your taillight, so that's where you'll connect to your taillights. Your red wire is your brake for your brake, but if it's a two-wire system, then you just ground the red wire.

The yellow is the left turn and the green would be your right turn.When you do to go to connect these, use your circuit tester to test the function to get the correct wires hooked up. And they do include these four waterproof self-stripping wire connectors that will make tapping into your wires very quick and easy. A few specs on this, the maximum stop and turn light circuit is 2.1 amps per circuit, and the maximum taillight circuit is 7.5 amps. But that should do it for the review on the upgraded circuit protected taillight converter hardwire kit with the four-way connector and the circuit tester.

Wiring does what it’s supposed to, but most of the wires are relatively short, especially the green wire, making installation tricky. Also, the blue connectors aren’t great. Since the wires are only just long enough, it’s impossible to use these t-connectors. I ended up soldering the wires. 612504

Quick shipping! Helpful customer service rep on the phone. Installed everything myself (lucky me I had an auto lift to use), bought a 4x8 flatbed trailer on craigslist, and pulled a piano, desk and other furniture about 250 miles with my 1997 Toyota Corolla.

The hitch it self was excellent and the service was real good. The wiring kit came with no directions. The stuff online for it was not that good. It all did work out well but it took time and the weather was not nice. It should have said universal wiring and I would not cared. Next time I'll be more careful. This is a good company to deal with. This is the first complaint I've ever had. 366250

I just installed my trailer wiring harness I purchased from etrailer.com For the do it yourselfer that can trace and figure out which wires are needed to splice into, it is a very good kit. I chose to solder my connections instead of using the supplied crimp connectors. I've seen these connectors corrode after a few years and then you have to eliminate it and fix the connection. Also, I chose to attach the converter to the frame with a heavy duty tie strap instead of using the adhesive pad that is attache to it. The only other thing I might suggest is a self drilling screw to attacht the ground wire. Having said all that, I would highly recommend this Kit. It saved me between $400 and $900 dollars according to the horror stories I've read online. You Guys need to get this product out there, maybe go to some Dodge forums. Good Job. 65616

Installation went Just about as I expected. Working alone it took me about 1 1/2 hours, not counting the wiring harness ( 62 year old guy). I installed one of your hitches several years ago so I knew about what to do. The video was a big help. The only tools needed were a ratchet, screw driver,ramps,and a can of WD40. I left one of the 3 rubber exhaust supports (hangers) in place. It gave some support to the muffler so the pipe wouldn't bend, but everything dropped down low enough slide the hitch into place. 2007 Kia Sportage w/ single exhaust. 214621

The new hitch arrived today, everything was in the box that I ordered. Very Very nice product. I must admit I was kind of expecting a cheap looking hitch. But this is first class stuff. I'll be using it on my Yaris shortly. Rather than spend a bunch of money on a pickup truck. A 4 x 8 trailer will be hauling my home repair products from now on. Also, I will be coming back to "etrailer" for a bike rack to fit the new hitch. I highly recommend "etrailer", with the on-line assistance and very nice products. You can't beat the price either. The local uhaul wanted double the money I spent at "etrailer" to install the hitch and wire it. It took me 25 minutes to install the hitch and about an hour to wire it. (lot's of plastic to remove and reinstall) Thanks again guys......Happy Customer. 25760

I needed a hard-to-find hitch for my '98 Montero, overnight, no less. I ordered this part along with a harness from etrailer with overnight shipping. I don't live at the end of the world, but you can see it from here, so I wasn't optimistic about everything arriving on time for my trip. Shortly after the order was placed I received emails from etrailer's staff indicating the part wasn't at their main warehouse and would have to be sourced from another. They updated me throughout the day and the following morning. The parts arrived early afternoon. Installation took little time at all with their helpful wiring harness install video. Great thanks to George J, Bridget A and Madison H and others for seeing this through. 342774

No instructions. What goes where?? 645319


Comments

The installation instructions are linked above, but because this is not a vehicle specific wiring harness, the instructions are very general in nature. Youll need to access the taillight wiring harnesses in the trunk area and use the included circuit tester to identify which wire carries which taillight function. The red wire connects to the brake lamp circuit, the green wire to the right turn signal, the yellow to the left turn, the brown to the running lights and the white wire grounds to the vehicle. There are video links above in the product description, but none of the videos are specific to your vehicle, the wire colors in the vehicle itself will likely be colored differently, so you cant depend on the wire color. This being said, they do show the method used to identify which circuit carries which function, so in that respect youll likely find them helpful.

The 2 stars are for the lack of ANY correct instructions ( none were in the package, so i relied on the videos published by etrailer) for my 2006 Toyota Avalon . Once i determined the proper hookup the unit itself seems fine . The closest instruction i could find was the video for the 2007 Toyota Avalon . i used it for the instructions. Turns out, it is not correct for the 2006. After several hours of volt and ohm meter readings and swapping cars to verify that my trailer harness wiring was OK , i noticed that the low side of the bulbs for the rear lights were not attached anywhere to a car chassis ground. Then i determined that the white ground wire and lug( car side wiring of the unit) for the 119178 was NOT to be attached to the car chassis ground but to a low side wire in the wiring harness( black and white). Everything worked fine with that correction. I also found the note attached to the red wire confusing as it had different attachment instructions that depended on whether one was using a 2 wire or 3 wire system. Again no description to help me tell what system i had( 3 wire). Instructions and or a schematic would have raised my evaluation to 4 stars( 5 stars being reserved for longtime reliability). 315613

Fast shipping. Product as advertised. Installation was a snap. I did not use the snap on wire connects I soldered the wires. After making connections all the lights on the trailer worked with the exception of tail lights. Being experienced in trailer lighting I checked the ground first. How can all functions on both lights except tail lights work and their be a ground issue. Tail lights share a connection. I think a lot of the issues in poor reviews are probably due to ground issues on the trailer. When troubleshooting trailer issues always start at the ground that's where I have found the problem to be most of the time a bad ground can make the lights do crazy things. As for how the converter holds up only time will tell. 722342

Everything was perfect from start to finish. Received delivery promptly and installation completed in an hour and a half including wiring. Only things I recommend is installation instructions for wiring kit and better quality scotch lock connectors. I am an ASE Master Technician with 40 years experience so installing the wiring w/o instructions is not an issue. Others may benefit from an instruction sheet. Overall 5 star experience. 720048

Easily installed in my Hyundai Elantra hatchback. The tester is paramount to this device. After installing make sure you test the actual hitch connector to make sure everything is working before you put all the car back together. My running lights did not have a solid connection, but luckily the kit came with an extra quick splicer, so it was easily slipped in. Everything appears to be working good. The installation video on a similar car was a huge help. 525324

It has a 2 inch opening and plenty of capacity and also has a concealed crosstube so it's not as visible. For a no-splice trailer wiring kit that fits your vehicle you'd then want the ZCI Kit part # 119250KIT. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900.

  • Bypassing Dodge Ram TIPM for Trailer Wiring Solution
  • Your generation of Dodge truck used a very bizzare trailer wiring setup. It has a TIPM which manages the trailer wiring. If it shorts out you can only reset it so many times (at a crazy price) until you have to just buy a new one. It's a God-awful setup if you ask me, but we do have a solution that allows you to bypass that if you are okay with a little bit of wiring. The best way around the TIPM is to bypass it all together with the trailer wiring. For that you can use the wiring harness...

The 4 to 7-way converter your trailer came with would not allow the vehicle to activate all functions of the trailer. For a 4-way trailer connector, I recommend the Upgraded Circuit Protected Tail Light Converter part # 119178KIT. Then for a 4 to 7-way trailer connector, I recommend the Universal Installation...

  • 1998 Audi A6 Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation
  • For your 1998 Audi A6 the Curt hitch part # C11166 is a confirmed fit and would be the best option. This was custom designed to fit the frame of your vehicle and was designed with light towing in mind. You'll also need trailer wiring too which the best option for that is the Tekonsha kit part # 119178KIT which has the most reliable converter box of the available kits. Then for a ball mount you'd want the part # C45521 with hitch balls # A-82 for a 2 inch ball or part # A-80 for a 1-7/8...

  • Towing Capacity for 2019 Honda CR-V
  • I took a look at the online version of the owner's manual for the 2019 Honda CR-V. It states that the vehicle can tow a trailer that weighs up to 1,500 pounds. I do still recommend verifying this information by checking your copy of the manual as well. To tow a trailer with your CR-V you will need a trailer hitch, a wiring harness, and a ball mount and hitch ball combo. Starting with the trailer hitch I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Receiver Hitch # 76128 because it...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendations for a 2003 Buick Park Avenue
  • If the trailer that you tow does have LED lights then using wiring harness # 119178KIT will require the least amount of installation time since it is a non-powered converter. This means that the trailer lights will draw all their power through the vehicle tail light wiring on your 2003 Buick Park Avenue. This is perfectly fine though since LED lights draw such little power. But if the trailer has regular incandescent lights or you ever need to tow a trailer with regular incandescent...

  • Can Modulite be Installed to Protect TIPM on a 2006 Dodge Ram 3500
  • The best way to avoid having to deal with issues from the TIPM on your 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 would be to install a new wiring system that bypasses it. This will ensure that the TIPM will not go out on you since the wiring won't be run through it. All of our modulite boxes come with wiring so that they are ready to be installed which makes new wiring the best route to go. You can install the Tekonsha Upgraded Circuit Protected Tail Light Converter Hardwire Kit # 119178KIT for starters which...

  • Thank you for your recent purchase of a trailer wiring harness for your Kia Sportage. The Tow Ready kit you selected, part # 119178KIT, is a specified fit for the 2006 Kia Sportage 4-cylinder. Since this is a universal-fit harness it will install in essentially the same way in all vehicles it fits.

  • Recommended Wiring Harness to Bypass Factory Trailer Wiring on 2003 Dodge Ram 2500
  • To bypass the factory trailer wiring on your 2003 Dodge Ram (which is indeed known for some fun issues) I recommend using the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness # C55504. This harness will plug into ports behind your truck's tail lights to provide you with a new 4-Way connector that doesn't go through the factory trailer wiring circuits. If you are currently using a 4-Way to connect with your trailer then this is all you need. If you have a 7-Way then you can just add the Hopkins...

  • Will Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch 24689 Fit a 2004 Chevy Monte Carlo SS
  • From what I could find the High Sport model of the Monte Carlo refers to one of the 6th generations specialty NASCAR editions of the vehicle. It seems to be associated with the Dale Jr. edition. If your 2004 Monte Carlo is an SS but not one of these NASCAR editions then trailer hitch # 36292 will fit. If you plan on doing some towing the correct ball mount is # 3590. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch ball use # 19258. For trailer wiring use # 119178KIT. I have linked...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2002 Mazda Protege5
  • Yes, the Draw-Tite Hitch part # 24714 that you referenced is confirmed to fit your 2002 Mazda Protege5 and comes with installation instructions that include torque specs. A hitch accessory would be a bike rack or cargo carrier. Since you only plan on towing you don't need to worry about that. For trailer wiring you would want part # 119178KIT. For a ball mount you will want the part # 3593, 1-7/8 inch ball # 19256, 2 inch ball # 19258. You will want to check the owners manual of...

  • Will T-One Wiring Harness 118465 Fit a 2005 Honda Element
  • The T-One Wiring Harness, part # 118465 will not fit a 2005 Honda Element. It will only fit newer models of the Honda Element. You will need to hard wire your 2005 model. We recommend the hard wiring kit, part # 119178KIT, because it provides all the parts you will need to complete the hard wiring installation yourself. I attached installation instructions for you to review also.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2004 Volkswagen Jetta GLS
  • The reason the Curt Hitch part # C11070 that you referenced won't fit a GLI is because the GLI models have OEM ground effects. The GLS models do not have the ground effects so the # C11070 would fit. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. If you are looking to doing any light towing with your vehicle, I would also recommend these items listed below. Wiring Kit # 119178KIT 2 inch Hitch Ball # 19258 1-7/8 inch Hitch Ball # 19256

  • What is the Towing Capacity of a 2005 Toyota 4Runner
  • The aftermarket trailer hitch receivers we carry like the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75155 for your 2005 Toyota 4Runner are almost always going to exceed the capacity of the tow vehicle. However, the lower of the two figures which in this case is the vehicle will need to be the one you abide by. Therefore, your 4Runner with the Max-Frame will have a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 lbs. If you will be anywhere near the 5,000 lb towing capacity of your vehicle...

  • We do not currently carry a wiring harness for your 2001 Land Rover Discovery, so you will need to hard wire your vehicle. You will need three components. First, a brake controller. I recommend the Tekonsha P2, # 90885. It is one of our best selling and highest rated brake controllers. Next, you will need Brake Controller 7 and 4-Way Installation Kit - 10 Gauge, # ETBC7. Last, you will need a 4-Pole trailer connector like Upgraded Circuit Protected Taillight Converter Hardwire Kit with...

  • Does Installation of Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Require Fascia Trimming on 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
  • Yes, the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24748 does fit the 2000 Volkswagen TDI. I have also included a link to the instructions to the right and you can see that there is no trimming of the bumper or fascia required for hitch installation. If you plan on doing some towing the correct ball mount is # 3593. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch ball use # 19258. And for trailer wiring use # 119178KIT.

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2006 Toyota 4Runner that Does not Require Fascia Trimming

For a hitch that is also confirmed to fit your vehicle that does not require fascia trimming check out the Curt Hitch part # 13445. We do not have a video of the Curt hitch being installed but I did attach a video of the # 70779 being installed on a similar vehicle that would give you the basic idea.

This kit comes with the circuit tester to help make sure you find the correct wires behind the tail lights when installing the kit. You will then need part # ETBC7. This connects to the 4-way connector and the additional wires will need to be hardwired. I have...
