Video Transcript for Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2001 BMW X5

Today on this 2001 BMW X5 we are going to install part number 119190. We are also going to use part number 118151 and that is going to be the install kit. The first step is to get inside the vehicle because that is where the wiring harness is and basically what we are going to do next is remove the interior panel before we can get to the wiring itself. We are going to take out the two side panels. The first thing we are going to do is find a wire harness that actually goes directly into the tail light and there is a socket that goes into it so disconnect that, there is a little tab right in the middle. 00:35

The first thing we will do is test for the functions of the wire. We are going to do one circuit at a time. First off we will start with the running light circuit and we are going to test on the inside of the plug and we will see which color does what. It looks like it is going to be the gray and purple wire so we are going to take our running light wire from the modulite which will be brown and we are going to connect that to the wire. We will be using the quick splice to do that with and that will be part number 564. 01:05

We will move on to the next circuit. The left turn looks like a green and blue wire so the left turn for the module is going to be yellow and we will hook it up the same way we did before. Next we will look for the stop light wire. Off, on, off. It looks like the brake signal is going to be brown and black. Our stop light wire on the module is going to be red. Reinstall the wire harness back into the tail light and take the white wire and ground it to the body. Use a ring terminal to do that with. Next we will deal with the green wire and that is going to go to the right turn signal so take the green wire and route it over to the right side of the vehicle along the factory wire harness. We are looking at the passenger side and disconnect the tail light harness. Just like before we will test for the right turn signal. The right turn looks like the blue and brown wire. We can reinstall the wiring back into the tail light. Back over on the driver side of the vehicle we will hook up the black wire coming out of the modulite and basically we are going to take our wire from the 118151 kit and we are going to connect the two together and the black wire is going to be ran to the battery. Leave that wire alone for now and lets mount our module up somewhere inside the vehicle. There is a nice spot right here and they do not come with the kit but we will use a couple of cheap ones just to hold everything in place. 02:59

To get access to the battery we are going to have to remove the spare tire. Take this and roll it off to the side and now we have access to the battery. What we will do now is take the black power wire to see how much length we need to go down to the battery. We did not use much but we will cut off our excess and we will follow this a little bit like the green wire, that will be about right, and on the end of the black wire we will install the fuse holder. In one side we will add the ring terminal and the other side we will add the butt connector. Add this to the black wire and now take the ring terminal and we are going to add this to the positive side of the battery. Sneak the lead underneath the structure right here however I think we will put a notch right next to the plastic case because we will run the wires straight out that way we have easy access to the fuse if you ever change it. Now we are going to install the 15 amp fuse 118151 kit comes with a 10 amp fuse and that will be replaced with by this 15. We will take come zip ties now and zip tie the wires safe and out of the way. At this point we can reassemble the interior of the vehicle. To use the wire harness pull a little bit of it out and shut the door on it because the seal is thick enough where it will not hurt anything when you shut the lid. Just to make sure you stay away from the latch, pull out what you need to go out to your hitch. With that that will finish our install of part number 119190 and part number 118151.

After a lot of head scratching, looking for shorts, internet searches, and checks with my meter, I finally figured out that my camper tail and marker lights were dim because of low voltage. My 2000 Ford Econoline Van didn't have the trailer towing package. So, Ford ran the thinnest wiring to the tail lights which, of course, couldn't carry the voltage necessary to the camper. After another search on the internet, I came across your wonderful site. You had exactly what I needed to solve my problem. The videos and descriptions on your website convinced me of the product I needed. The Q&A sections are awesome as well! The only negative on the product was the wiring to the right turn/brake light wasn't long enough for my van, but that was an easy fix with some solder and another length of wire. I also ordered the ModuLite Installation Wiring Kit, Item # 118151 to run from the Modulite module to the battery. Twenty feet of wire wasn't enough to get to the battery through the interior of my van, but did get me to the front of the engine compartment. Again, hardly a problem as I had a length of 12 gauge braided wire to complete the lateral run across to the battery. The Valterra Electrical Cable Hatch for RVs - 4-9/16" Diameter - White Item # A10-2137VP was a perfect drop-in fit on my '92 Jayco. Your website is great and I will recommend you to anyone that needs parts or advice for their trailering and camping needs! Fast, accurate shipping, expert advice in the form of videos, descriptions, and Q&A, phone advice (if you need it), along with a great selection make ETrailer the BEST. THANKS! 523092

After one year of use, my "Tow Ready" is working fine. The trailer lights are bright and the Tow Ready unit has not affected my Sprinter van's current monitored rear light wiring. My only wish is that the turn signal and brake lights were two different bulbs and not combined into one. (I like yellow turn signals on my trailers with separate red brake lights.) With this Tow Ready unit, the brake light flashes on and off when the turn signal is on. Other than that, its perfect. Todd from Wisconsin. 248395

All is still good with my Tow Ready. The trailer lights are working fine. Glad I bought it.

This Circuit Protected wiring harness is essential for use on any BMW that has not been factory pre-wired for a trailer. These cars are prone to electronic board failure ($4000.) if a standard wiring harness is used...do not do it - it will void the car warranty. This product is the only one I found that is suitable. Beware that there are others on the marketplace that are similar but do not provide adequate protection to the vehicle wiring and circuits. U-Haul has a very good one that actually has an LED feature on the 4-Flat plug that makes it simple to verify that each of the wires are connected properly and functioning however theirs does NOT provide protection when both brake and tail lights share wires. This review may not make sense to some readers but your BMW dealer and any knowledgable trailer hitch installer/supplier will know exactly the importance of using this exact product. Great product, very fair price and very quick delivery from etrailer. 52720

First, as to the product: As others have commented, the lack of installation instructions was a little disconcerting. George helped me find the directions online, and everything went well from there. The installation took me about 1 1/2 hours, and I don't work fast. This was a replacement for an older, cheaper Hopkins converter. That one had developed the habit of blinking both turn signals anytime the brake lights were also on. The Tekonsha fixed that, and, as a bonus the brake and turn lights are brighter now. Turning to customer service, in most things etrailer is great. I ordered with two day shipping, and the product was shipped immediately and came via UPS in two days. George was very reponsive to my request for directions emailing a response in an hour. The one disappointing thing was when I called the number after "Call to talk to a product expert", not only did I not get a product expert, the CSR didn't really comprehend what I was asking about. However, she got Bill to call me back, and he answered my questions competently. 430250


Comments

Pretty good, but not perfect. After a few months use, I started noticing the same problem I had with the Hopkins - the off-side lights blinking alternately with the on-side. But faintly. I dont think its enough to be a safety problem, but a little discouraging nevertheless.

I have a 2012 VW Golf TDI. It has very strange wiring, but does work with this Modulite (119190). The issue is that my Golf has a 2 wire setup, but it is the running and brake lights that share bulbs, not the turn signals (it is possible to pick up individual signals for the running lights from the car's license plate light and to use the center brake light...but it's hard to get to them). But, I was surprised in my testing that this converter works fine like this. I used the red wire for picking up the combined brake/running signal, and left the brown wire unconnected (however, I will go back and ground it). Turn signals hook up normally. 79547

Still working great 18 months later.... I dont use the trailer that often, but its nice that the lights always work when I hook it up!

The product was delivered overnight just as requested. It is so difficult to find a company nowadays who not only will have the products in stock but that will also ship them as you have requested. Even though I requested overnight shipping on the product, I was honestly not expecting it to arrive until a couple of days later. I was presently surprised when it arrived the next day. 33611

Mike, I have a BMW X-5 as well but I am not sure which wires to connect to. It appears they use the same wire for the brake as the tail light. Cant figure out the reverse light either? Can you help me?

I purchased this product to convert the 3 way tail light system in my Freightliner FLD 120 truck/tractor to use for my agriculture trailers that use a 2 way light system. I have several trailers I use and each of them have a lot of lights, so I needed a powered converter. I had tried using a non-powered converter first, and the hazard lights would not flash since the tail lights exceeded the maximum 2.1 amps of the converter. This product has a maximum limit of 4.2 amps and meets the amperage requirements for the conversion. I have converted my Freightliner to haul gooseneck style trailers which come wired with electric brakes and a 7 pin RV connector. I installed the converter up in the dash area of the truck connecting to the wires located there. The RV connector is not compatible with the 7 pin commercial truck wiring so you have to make some wiring changes in addition to the conversion from 3 way to 2 way. But as to this product, it works great. I needed my converter shipped overnight because of a time factor on a must have basis, and eTrailer did just what was needed and the product arrived as promised. Also eTrailer had a tech contact me personnally to answer some questions about another product I had purchased from them over 5 years ago and was most helpful on that issue. As far as my opinions go, this company is great to do business with and I would highly recommend them for your trailer and wiring needs. They know their product, believe in customer satisfaction and customer service, and can solve your trailering problems and issues. 29409

Do you have a question about this Wiring?


  • Complete Towing Package for a 2015 Volvo V60
  • Your 2015 Volvo V60 that was manufactured in May of 2015 was before the mid-year harness was developed therefore you will need to use a hardwire option like the Upgraded Heavy Duty ModuLite Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness part # 119190. The hardwire harness will be the only option that is available for you as the custom fit harness will not work on your vehicle. For a brake controller I recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Trailer Brake Controller part # 90885. The Prodigy P2 is...

  • 7 Way Trailer Connection Troubleshooting
  • Yes. It sounds like there is no signal being sent from your 7 way connector to your trailer, or it is not being received for the stop and turn lights. I recommend using a circuit tester like # PTW2993 to check the functions at your truck first. If you are getting signal on the posts on the truck you know the problem is in the trailer wiring, and if you are not getting signal there, you have isolated the issue to the truck first. You will need to splice into the wires at your tail lights...

  • Troubleshooting Potential Overload on Curt Wiring Harness for Taillights Not Working
  • If the draw of your taillights and side clearance lights combined exceeds the 6 amp maximum, it is quite possible the converter box did short circuit. Short circuiting at the box is the way the harness protects from overload. It is also important to note that the harness' 12V power wire must be connected directly to the vehicle's battery, through the supplied fuse holder, not to an auxiliary 12V power source elsewhere on the car. If you find that the taillights and clearance lights...

  • Based on your description of what has occurred I believe that there is a short somewhere that is causing the problems. But the converter box alone from # 119250KIT cannot be replaced by itself because it is not offered. It would require a whole new complete harness. If you do not want to spend the money on another # 119250KIT you could instead use # 119190 and reuse the power wire from the 119250KIT and make the same wiring connections (though they will have to be spliced in) as the 119250.

You can certainly use a 4 to 6 pole adapter, part # 37175 or a 4 to 7 pole adapter, part # 37185. The powered accessory lead would use the black wire on the 7 way adapter and the blue wire on the 6 way. You would...

If you have previously pulled the trailer with the vehicle in the past then I would lean towards a wiring issue but if you have never pulled this trailer before...

I recommend trying to relocate the ground of the converter to see if this provides a solution to your problem. Grounding issues can show themselves in strange ways. If relocating the ground doesn't fix your issue, I recommend replacing the wiring harness. For European cars like your BMW 325i Wagon, we've found we have the best success with the Tekonsha Upgraded Circuit Protected...

  • Trailer Wiring and Prodigy RF Brake Controller Pairing on a 2004 BMW X5
  • If you bought just the # 119190 harness and not the kit # 119190KIT then I recommend adding installation kit # 118151 which comes with additional wire, a fuse holder, and a 10 amp fuse. On a 4- to 7-Way adapter such as # 37185 or in the kit # ETBC7 you would only need the trailer light functions and the black wire connected (12 volt power) via the 40 amp circuit breaker and the white ground wire attached in order for the Prodigy RF brake controller # 90250 to function. The other wires...

  • Can Wireless Brake Controller be Used with Electric over Hydraulic Brakes on Big Tex Trailer
  • I recommend using the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller, # 90885 to tow your Big Tex HD Trailer with your 2013 Peterbilt 587. A wireless brake controller like you mentioned in your question, such as the Tekonsha Prodigy RF # 90250, is not compatible with electric-over-hydraulic brakes. The Prodigy P2 is a great proportional brake controller that can be used with electric-over-hydraulic trailer brakes. You will also need the wiring installation kit # ETBC7 which will include everything...

  • Recommendations for Installing a 7-Way and Brake Controller in a 2006 Dodge Ram
  • If your 7-pin connector looks like the picture I attached and you have tested the circuits of the plug and they are functional then I would recommend you use a Hopkins Endurance Quick-Install 7-Way Trailer Connector # HM42190 for a trailer wiring harness. For a circuit tester you could use our Circuit Tester part # 3808 or something similar. You will probably need a brake controller too, for that I recommend you get a Tekonsha P2 Brake Controller and Vehicle Harness # 90885 and # 3020-P....

  • Trailer Wiring Harness for 2013 VW Tiguan
  • The # 119190KIT would work great on your Tiguan. There is no difference between the 119190KIT and the 119191KIT, they are both the same part. Tow Ready sells the part two ways, as # 119190, which doesn't include the wire to run to the battery or the inline fuse, or as # 119191 which includes the wire and the fuse. We sell it as 119190 without the wire/fuse and 119190KIT with the wire/fuse. I've linked to the install instructions, but they're pretty general in nature. Use a circuit tester...

  • Tail Light Converter to Combine Separate Stop and Turn Lights for Trailer
  • In most trailer wiring the stop and turn light signals are combined into one circuit for each side of the trailer. 4-pole wiring uses a yellow wire for the combined left-hand stop/turn signal and a green wire for the right side. 7-way wiring also combines these light functions. You can refer to the linked article on trailer wiring. If you are looking to connect a motorcycle's separate stop and turn lights to a trailer whose lighting is combined you can use Roadmaster part # RM-732. This...

  • Why Would 4-Way on 2011 Kia Sedona Have Pins Hot All the Time
  • What you described sounds like a shorted out converter box. Nearly every time one of the boxes fails the symptoms you described are what happens. Also, the Curt harnesses are notorious for shorting out easier than the Tekonsha. I would recommend you go with the part # 118410 after seeing if you can find the short that's on your trailer's wiring. Now if your trailer does not have brakes all you would need is the part # 37185 as an adapter to convert the 4-way to a 7-way. If you do...

  • Is Taillight System of 2005 Dodge Ram 3500 a 2 Wire or a 3 Wire
  • Your 2005 Dodge Ram has a 3 wire system. To install the 119190, the green converter wire would tap into the right turn signal circuit, the yellow into the left turn circuit, the brown into the running light circuit , the white would ground and the red wire would connect to a brake lamp circuit. If you're wanting a hardwire kit, I'd go with the # 119190KIT, which includes the kit for running the power wire to the vehicle battery and the circuit tester which aren't included with the # 119190. Going...

  • Recommendation for a Trailer Wiring Harness for a Victory Vision Motorcycle
  • I would recommend using the Upgraded Modulite Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4 Pole Trailer Connector, item # 119190KIT, which is the wiring harness that you mentioned. The 119190KIT includes the all of the wiring needed and a circuit tester to help determine the wires to splice into for the tail light functions. The # 119190 wiring harness is a powered harness that draws only about 5 milliamps from the vehicles tail light circuits and provides power to the towed trailer...
