Installation

This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located in your rear cargo area, either behind the driver's-side trim panel or in the spare tire compartment. You will need to remove some interior paneling to access this harness. Once you've plugged in the connector, insert the provided fuse into the in-line fuse holder.


Once installation is complete, the 4-way flat connector will be stowed in your rear cargo area.


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


ModuLite 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.

Video Transcript for Tekonsha Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - Trailer Hitch Wiring - 118467 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the T1 vehicle wiring harness with the four pole flat trailer connector. This product fits certain years and models of the Subaru Forester, Cross Trek and XV Cross Trek as well as the Subaru Outback wagon. To ensure that this is a fit for your vehicle you can use the vehicle fit guide located at etrailer.com. This unit provides a four way flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights. It is compatible with five pole, six pole, and seven pole adapters. Adapters are sold separately and it's going to come with a dust cap, that way you can cover up your connection points whenever your plug's not being used.

That wiring runs to this black box right here. This is the included Modu-Lite. This is going to ensure that your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailer. The unit's going to feature protective connection terminals to resist corrosion, that way they last a long time and they're effective for a long time. The unit's designed to connect quickly and easily, you don't have to worry about cutting or splicing any wires, just locate the connection point in the rear cargo area and plug in the connector. Now this is custom fit for your vehicle, so it's going to plug in to the port on the vehicle, it's going to match up perfectly, it's going to snap lock together for a nice, tight, secure fit.

It also comes with a 10 amp mini fuse, it's in this fuse holder right here. Once you have that plugged in, you'll need to mount the Modu-Lite in a safe, out of the way location. The kit does come with a couple cable ties as well. Then once you're installation's complete, the connector's going to be stored in your rear cargo area. Plenty of wiring there that way you can extend it out the back of the vehicle when you're ready to use it and then you can bundle it back up, stow it away in the cargo area when it's not in use and it's going to keep it safe from the elements. It is recommended that you use a small amount of dielectric grease on all your electrical connections like the plug on the vehicle and the four pole connector itself.

That grease is designed to help prevent corrosion to those connection points. The grease is sold separately and available here at etrailer.com. When it comes to the maximum amperage for the stop and turn lights, we're looking at 2.1 amps per circuit and for the tail lights we're looking at 5.6 amps per circuit. The unit also comes with very detailed installation instructions to help walk you through that entire process step by step. That's going to do it for today's look at the T1 vehicle wiring harness with the four pole flat trailer connector.

This harness fit my Subaru Forester 2012 perfectly. Installed just like in the video on the website illustrated. Still works fine after a year. Since it spends most of its time inside the vehicle away from the elements I've had no issues with its function - it delivers every time. The wiring on my trailer is of course another matter haha! 574788

Wasted an hour following the video installations for the 2017 and 2018 Subaru Outback models as I could not locate the cars wiring plug and it was extremely difficult and painful reaching under the panel and I have relatively small hands. Finally read some other reviews and unbolted the tie down hook which easily exposed the wiring plug. The tie down hooks bolt is exposed by popping the plastic cover in the middle of the hook with a screwdriver and removing the 10mm bolt. I think the video should be edited to show this alternate procedure. Otherwise tested and works correctly. Except for the installation frustration I am satisfied. 544041

The product is good, but the directions are terrible. I had a very difficult time finding the wiring plug on the Subaru Crosstrek with the direction included. I had to go to Subaru and look at their wiring instructions. Even theirs took a while to figure it out. 127488


Comments
The harness is still working well. I have it so the plug is inside the vehicle when not in use, so the salt does not destroy it during the winter.

Your video on how to install hitch and wiring was so simple to follow and easy to understand that I did not even need the instruction sheets. This video convinced me to do it myself and save money allot of money! The only problem while installing hitch I had was in enlarging the holes in my car. This was because of the material this section was made of , aluminum. or something of the kind, very soft. A die grinder would have made short work of this task. This part took the most time, about 30 min. the rest of the job was complete in another 15 min. I am speaking about the hitch, wiring took another 30 min., you will see why when you view my pictures. The wiring harness connectors fit into my cars harness like it was manufactured a the plant which built my car. The car dealer where I bought the car tried to sell me on them installing hitch and wiring because they claimed your products would need a lot of retrofitting. This was not the case at all. Everything you supplied fit perfect without any necessary modifications, however I did make a modification to the wiring harness to fit my own needs. I did not like the idea of sticking it out the trunk, so I went to local parts store and picked up a special bracket and connector to install onto the trailer hitch, thus having connector outside car as it should be. If I did not make this mod it would have only taken 10 min. to install. You can see this connector mod in the picture I am sending you. I have recommended this site to many other people in my fishing club and at work. My brother-in law has just ordered one for his car, seeing how easy my in-stallion was. With your help and a desire to save allot of money anyone can install a hitch, even if you never did one before. The two wire feeders for the bolts worked great, I never saw this technique before. Without them the job would have been tough to say the least. As you mentioned, it is wise to have another person help when it comes time to lift the hitch into position. My brother in -law helped me, now he is buying a hitch and I shall help him lift it into position. Maybe if I was not 63 I could have done the job myself. 14565

2013 Subaru Outback Wagon

I installed this harness in my 2013 Outback. The plug in the Outback was difficult to find and pull out even with the fine instructions from etrailer.com, I blame Subaru for that. The only issue that I have with this harness is that once plugged in the fuse and controller module are very difficult to situate in such a way as to enable the replacement of the Subaru's interior panels. Both the fuse and controller could be placed closer to the middle of the harness enabling them to be stored in the spare tire well. I ended up shoving them under the side wheel panel with difficulty and running the rest of the wires around the left trunk perimeter and into the spare tire well. From there it was easy to remove the rear most rubber drain plug in the well and cut a slit in it for the harness (see picture) to run through before placing the plug back in its place. Longer zip ties would have been helpful for securing the harness to the hitch. 95565

WOW! George, has it been a year? That hitch is still sitting in my workshop waiting for me to install it! LOL! However, it is very near the top of my to-do list and i suspect I'll be putting it on in the next month or so. Procrastination is my specialty! Cheers... 574876

Trailer plug works great , the directions not so great . Opened the rear hatch removed carpet and center storage unit removed the driver side panel as instructed trying to find the harness. It’s not in the location it’s supposed to be. It’s on the driver side rear . Remove one #2 Philips and pull side panel and it’s right there near the tail light. Unplug the cap and install the plug . Run wire down and out the bottom. Easy if you know where it is! 558893

I am very happy with the trailer wiring harness which plugged in and has worked flawlessly since I was finally able to get it connected. Because my car was new I was very cautious about the install. The directions were good and clear. The only problem I had was in "finding" the wiring from the driver's side of the rear compartment. I removed all of the loose styrofoam and other parts that were in the way. This went easily and according to the directions. Retrieving the wire from under the carpet/sound-proofing above the wheel well was the only difficult part. Because the car was new and I didn't want to damage the fabric glued to the body, I reviewed the Video and even went to my dealership to be sure I had not over-looked a step. With my big hands, I was finally able to reach and pull out the wire and plug in the harness without any damage to the sound barrier or wires. The rest was easy. Since I only use a trailer periodically, I chose to leave the trailer connector in the Tire well and not mount it permanently on the outside with the hitch. Looks and works great and I am happy to let friends know I did it myself and save probably over $100. 433695


Comments
Still very happy with it and the installation. The Wire gets compressed when I close the back door, so I am considering getting a permanent mount and running it out through the trunk liner. But Im just enjoying having all my lights work and not having to be home by dark.

The harness was very easy to plug in. I had to use a self-tapping screw to mount the module as the "double sided" tape that was supposed to be included was not in the box. That said, it could not have been simpler! 637132

The Tekonsha wiring harness arrived without delay and was exactly as expected. Installation on my 2018 Subaru Outback went smoothly thanks to the excellent instructions and video that e-Trailer.com provides. The feedback and reviews of other customer are also very helpful. I reviewed the instruction video several times and read some of the reviews. I had absolutely no issue to install it in a few minutes. It is a little tricky getting my big fingers behind the panel to pull the connector down that is taped up with blue tape. Once you have that down, the rest is a piece of cake. I would also like to comment that I also installed the DrawTite 2" Receiver hitch. This installation went quite well, although I must say that the e-Trailer video, and instructions supplied with the hitch are not as good as the explanations of some of the reviewers. For example, it is much easier to pass the bolts and spacers from the top (inside the truck area) by enlarging the existing holes in the cargo area floor, rather than drilling a new hole in the bottom of the frame as per the instructions. I also discovered that it is possible to do this by only enlarging the two forward holes in the cargo floor, rather than all four. It is very easy to fish the rear bolts from the front hole if you pass the fish wire in from the bottom rear hole in the frame. Another trick from other reviewers that was very helpful is to mark the heat shield with a Sharpie from inside before you remove it and then drill it rather than trim it with metal shears. It gives a much nicer looking job. Finally, I discovered a trick that really helps to align the hitch when bolting it up. Take four of the M6 bolts that were removed from the heat shields and put them into their holes through the hitch. Once this is done, the hitch is perfectly aligned and you can tighten and torque the four large nuts holding the hitch in place. If you do this, your heat shield will bolt up easily without any issue of the bolts not aligning with the holes. Actually, there was one issue that is not mentioned in any of the reviews that I read, and it would be really nice if DrawTite could fix. This is that fact that the 2 forward original M6 bolts for the heat shields next to the frame that must pass through the hitch flange are too short with the spacer washer placed as per the instructions. The installation kit should include replacement bolts that are about 1/2 inch longer so that they can pass through the hitch flange and the spacer. Unfortunately, the original bolts are too short and stripped when trying to install because they were only holding with a few treads. Now I have to go an buy some longer bolts and repeat the process of lowering the mufflers and exhaust pipe to install them. It would have been nice to know before as I could have easily purchased them in advance. I am very satisfied with e-Trailer.com and their excellent website and service. It certainly is my first stop when looking for anything related to trailers. 516819

Product arrived on time. Installation went well once I removed the metric 10 holding the tie down. ( cover pops off to expose bolt) Some good hand scratches without gloves trying to find the connector without removing the tie down. Otherwise the video instructions were great. Took it to local trailer rental place and they checked lighting connections. All good. 547234

I've had this wiring kit for about a year. The installation was very easy. One thing to note, instead of running the wire out the rear hatch of my 2017 Subaru Forester I ran it through the rubber plug that is in the bottom of the spare tire well. I simply cut a slit in the plug and slid it around the wire. I then put the plug in place and sealed it with some silicone caulk. The 4 pin connector is corrosion free thanks to the rubber cover that is molded into the plug. 563632

2009 Subaru Forester

It took me longer to remove all the foam trays and liners from my car than it did to remove the old wiring harness and install this new harness. It works fine. In my opinion, the Subaru 2009 Forester (and others I guess) has a bad system where the wires for trailer lights have to lay through the rear hatch and are pinched in the door seal. Evidently, over time, that lead to the failure of the right turn signal wire on the previous wiring harness. The installer of the previous harness had put a wire protector (split black corrugated plastic sleeve) over the wires which I think contributed to the failure. I'm going to keep the wires for the new harness "bare" and make sure they lay flat where they go through the door seal. Hopefully that will reduce the pinching of the wires. All in all a great design; nothing to do but plug it in and go. And etrailer's service was superb; I called to make sure I was ordering the correct wiring harness, got the shipping arranged to my mom's house in Ohio where I was visiting (from PA), and etrailer kept me posted on the shipping progress. No problems and I would definitely recommend etrailer. THANKS! 206824


Comments
I originally had some trouble with the new LED tailturn/stop lights working properly, and etrailer technicians asked me to check all the trailer ground wires and connections. I did that and the lights worked for awhile, but then stopped working correctly. It seemed to be an intermittent problem which are the hardest to figure out! I had the main ground wire for the trailer clamped to the trailer frame under a screw and washer, and I still wasnt sure that the ground connections were good. So I ended up drilling and tapping a hole for a 10 screw that now clamps the ground wire to the trailer frame, and makes sure there is a direction connection from the ground wire to the metal frame of the trailer. The tail/turn/stop lights now seem to work fine knock wood!. All in all etrailer supplies good products and provides great service. I definitely recommend them and will use them for my future trailer wiring and lighting needs.

2017 Outback- 2" Hitch and Wiring Harness - I was too cheap to pay for the quicker delivery. No problem! The box arrived within the week (and that was with snow and zero degree temps throughout the nation!). Great start! I bought a step drill. Best $17.00 purchase ever. I just followed the directions from the box. That, and after watching the installation videos several times, gave me a good idea of what to expect. Exhaust came off perfectly. I had a can of silicone lube, which worked great for removing AND installing the rubbers in the exhaust hangers. Drilling the two holes - Drilling the access holes worked great with the step drill. Just drill until the fittings will go through. Wear some type of eye protection, and watch for the hot metal falling down into your shirt sleeves as you are drilling (Ask me how I know...). Thread the fishing wire in with the plate and bolt, and it does go right through the frame and into the smaller hole with no problem. I didn't think it could be that easy...but it was! Everything aligned perfectly. Don't remove the fishing line from the bolts. You'll do that AFTER the hitch is up and in place (so that the bolts are not pushed back up into the frame. They would be a bear to get back out!). At that point, I was ready to push the hitch up, and remove the fishing wires as I put on each nut. I figured that I could work out a way to do it by myself. After 30 minutes, I gave in and called my wife out to give me a hand. (I should have done that a half hour earlier...). I held up the hitch, she removed each wire from the bolts in the rear and threaded on the nuts. 2 minutes later, ALL the nuts were on. Maybe you can figure out a way to do it easy by yourself, but just a couple of minutes of help will save a lot of time! Tighten up the nuts... Heat shield back on (simple to trim it)...Spray a little more lube on the rubber hangers (never can use TOO much lube)...And look at what you just completed! 1:45 to complete the hitch install...including 30 minutes of "investigative time" until my wife saved the day. Installing the wiring harness - Yes, this can be 5 minutes...or an hour...depending on how quickly you can locate the wiring harness inside the panel. Removing all of the panels to get down to the spare tire was quick. Maybe a 6 year old could get their hand inside that drivers side panel, but that wire harness was very allusive. I finally cut a small (1/2") slit in the fabric panel right at the lower corner of the tie down hook. That way, I was able to lift the panel out away from the hook, and was able to see the famous "Blue Tape" and the white harness, right next to the left side of the tie down. I grabbed the harness, released it from that blue tape, yanked it down where I could plug in the new harness...and was very happy! Now that I know exactly where the harness is mounted, I could get to it a little easier. First time is always the hardest! I ran the wire through the bottom of the spare tire well. Just a small slit in the rubber grommet keeps a good seal, and then zip tie to the hitch (or a permanent mount), and it's ready to go! Thanks to etrailer.com for the great products, installation videos, and service! 335728

The hardest part of the trailer light install is getting to the factory connector. Watch the etrailer video and remove the 10 mm bolt on the forward rear tie down as another customer advised. The instructions in the light wiring harness are too vague, but the etrailer video makes up for this. Once I got to the factory connector, finishing takes about 2 minutes. 574560

2014 Forester factory trailer plug location - FYI The plug is located in the upper aft corner of the drivers side cargo panel. You must remove the tail gate panel, remove the cargo hold down and one screw from the upper bag holder. Then pop the aft edge of the trim panel out. The plug is not accessible from below the panel. 141183

This is the 2nd time I've bought a wiring kit from etrailer that was "Plug & Play". The stock Subaru trailer connector was right where they showed to be in the video & was easy to get to. I don't care for the idea of running it over the tailgate & body seal so I chose to run it through a conveniently placed rubbed plug in the spare tire well. The tire is held up off the harness by the hard insulation in the tire well bottom. A little silicone sealant around the harness where I snipped the plug to keep the water out & we're done! 179584


Comments
It looks like you didnt put the converter box under the wheel well cover like the installation instructions suggest. Did you cut out some foam from the compartment tray to fit around it on the floor? Thanks, I like the idea of going the through the plug in the floor and putting the wire directly outside.

Hi Dennis,Yes, I simply cut out a little bit of the foam panel. I wanted to keep the convertor box easily accessible. On the off chance it were to fail in the future it would keep it easy to test

I bought the hitch, wiring harness, and window deflectors. I think the deflectors took me all of 15 minutes to install and the hitch about 45 minutes and a half hour for wire harness. The harness isn't hard to hook up it's just finding it in your car. All and all very easy installation and really like it because I had given up my pick up and this is a great alternative to having a pick up not to mention double the fuel mileage. Went back to the dealer to get a hitch and they wanted $750. . with wiring and did it myself so thank you everyone at Etrailer for helping. When I place the order I could not have ask for a nicer person to help me out and the follow up to make sure I got everything and was satisfied. My only problem now is my buddy wants me to order another one and do his car with it so that will be coming up in a week or so. Thanks again. 545901

E-trailer is very easy to work with. The website is user friendly and very easy to navigate. I easily found the products I wanted and placed my order. My order arrived in 4 days and consisted of the Draw-rite max-frame class lll trailer hitch receiver custom fit for my 2015 Subaru Outback All items were in good condition upon arrival. I followed the installation instructions as written and had the hitch completed in 1 hr and another 20 minutes for the wiring harness. I would recommend E-trailer and their products to any diy. Excellent experience. Thanks 545050

Apparently the wiring behind the trim panel is a bit different in the 2018 Outback. There was no harness to untape and pull down below the trim panel to connect the trailer harness to. The connector was solidly affixed to something behind the trim panel. What I had to do was fold the left side rear side down, unclip and fold up the floor panel, and remove the tie down bracket in the side wall just behind the rear seat. The Subaru connector was easily pushed out through that opening. Then I back fed the trailer harness connector under the side trim panel and out the same hole. Plugged the two together, pushed them back in, and the rest of the instructions were fine. 456828

I was not at all pleased with the single sheet of installation instructions. They are not complete and the photos are not correctly labeled. I watched the etrailer installation video and it was not helpful. The connector was not easily reached in the side panel behind the left seat. The instructions are incomplete as to where the connector is actually located and how one reaches it without taking out the side panel. The video makes it look too easy. The baggage loop prevents one from reaching forward and up behind the side panel. The clearance below the side panel was too small to get my arm under its edge. I found the seat back release cable but not the electrical connection cable. 457354

Richard,Thank you for your review. I checked your account and see that you have a 2017 Subaru Outback wagon. I reviewed the installation video for your vehicle and you are looking in the correct spot. However, access to this area is limited. You will have to reach under the panel and feel around to pull the plug out. I have attached an installation video link. The installer shows the location of the plug around the 3 minute mark.

The only thing difficult about installing this is finding the Subaru plug on the vehicle. On my car (2017 Outback) it was of great help to remove the front most tie down ring on the driver's side. Unsnap the plastic center vertical bar on the mount using something like a screwdriver. That will expose a 10mm bolt. Remove the bolt and the assemble will pull out. You will then be able to see the plug (look for blue tape) and you will be able to get your hand behind the panel. 375146

  • Installing a 7-way Trailer Connector on a 2018 Subaru Outback
    We do have what you need to add a 7-way trailer connector to your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon but there isn't a specific custom harness that fits. If right now the Outback has no trailer wiring at all the easiest way to add a 7-way is to start with a plug and play 4-way and then convert it. I recommend using the Tekonsha, part # 118467, for the 4-way. It plugs in to a connector that's either behind a trim panel in the rear cargo area on the driver's side or in the spare tire compartment....

  • Installing a 7-Way Trailer Connector on a 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon
    That is correct for your 2017 Subaru Outback we only carry 4-way trailer connectors that are a direct fit. However, once you install the 4-way it can be converted to a 7-way, if that's what your trailer needs. Of the 4-way connectors for your Outback I recommend the Tekonsha # 118467 because we always have great success with them. To install the harness you'll need to locate the factory connector in the Subaru's rear cargo area. Then install the included fuse. I've linked an install...

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring Harness to Fit the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek
    We have a few trailer wiring harnesses that fit the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. I recommend the Tekonsha # 118467 because they always make quality products. It plugs into a connector that is located either behind a trim panel in the rear cargo area or in the spare tire compartment. Then you need to insert the provided fuse into the fuse holder. I've linked a video of the install on a 2017 model which is the same process for the 2018. If you also need a trailer hitch receiver I recommend...

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring Harness for 2015 Subaru Outback 2.5i
    The T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118467 is the one I recommend over the other two for your 2015 Subaru Outback 2.5i. This brand of harness has less issues than the others. The Hopkins # HM11143885 and the Curt harness # C56040 are very similar as you stated and all three will work well. It is the same product made by 3 different manufacturers. I personally would get the Tekonsha based on the reputation of reliability and customer feedback.

  • Recommended Trailer Brake Controller and Wiring for 2018 Subaru Outback
    You can absolutely install a trailer brake controller on your 2018 Subaru Outback. Starting with the brake controller itself, I highly recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195. This is an excellent, proportional controller that will activate the trailer's brakes at the same time and with the same intensity that you apply to them in your Outback. It features an easy to read digital display and continuous diagnostics that will alert you to any potential issues. This unit is well known...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness for 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon
    The Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118467 referenced in your question is indeed confirmed to fit your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon Limited, as long as it is not the Sport model. The same wiring harness did carry over from the 2017 model Outback Wagon. This custom-fit harness will connect directly to the built-in ports located behind the driver side trim panel on the vehicle. Once installed, this will give you the necessary 4-Way at the rear of the Outback Wagon to connect with and...

  • Comparing Curt, T-One, and Hopkins Trailer Wiring Kits for 2018 Subaru Forester
    We have three trailer wiring options for your 2018 Subaru Forester. We have the Curt option # C56040, the T-One option (my favorite) # 118467, and the Hopkins # HM11143865. The reason I favor and recommend the T-One kit part # 118467 is because the converter boxes on the T-One kits have been proven to us as being the most reliable. Trailer wiring shorts will easily damage the converter boxes of these kits which renders them totally inoperable but we have found that the T-One converter...

  • Does Tekonsha Wiring Harness Fit 2010 Subaru Forester
    Yes, the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118467 is a standard 4-way flat trailer connector which will be compatible with all other standard 4-way flat connectors. I have added a link to an install video so you can see how easy it is to put this in your Forester; just plug in the connection points in your rear cargo area and you are done. I have also attached a link to the install instructions so you can check those out. For a trailer hitch I strongly...

  • Installing A 7-Way Trailer Connector On A 2020 Subaru Outback Wagon
    I do have an option for you Trevor but there is not a custom fit 7-Way harness available for the 2020 Subaru Outback Wagon. You will need to convert Tekonsha 4-Pole flat trailer connector part # 118467 to a 7-way connector with part # ETBC7. The Tekonsha 4-Pole flat is a custom fit harness that plugs into the tail lights of the Outback. I have attached an installation video for your reference. Once the 4-Pole flat trailer connector is installed you can use the ETBC7 kit to convert it...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness for 2020 Subaru Outback Wagon That Doesn't Require Running Wire to Battery
    For your 2020 Subaru Outback Wagon XT the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118467 will work perfectly. This custom harness is going to plug right into existing ports in the rear cargo area and you will not have to run a separate hot lead to the battery. This will get power from the tail light circuits on the vehicle so it's a simple plug-and-play install without any additional connections or wiring. I have attached an installation video on the 2019 model Outback Wagon that you...

If you find the vehicle wiring harness and realize that it's already occupied by the backup sensor harness then follow the backup sensor harness up behind the trim of the vehicle in the cargo area like shown on the photo.

  • Where to Find Connector for Installing Trailer Wiring in a 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon
    We have heard that the connector needed to use for trailer wiring in your 2016 Subaru Outback can be difficult to find. One customer came back and said that if you use a mirror and a flashlight you will have a much easier time finding it behind the interior panel. Here's what one customer told us about locating it in a similar 2017 Outback: "On the 2017 Subaru Outback, it is behind the trim panel on the driver's side just in front of the rear wheel well. I found it very close to where...

  • Recommended 7-Way and Brake Controller for 2016 Subaru Crosstrek
    You will indeed need to upgrade the existing Curt 4-Way connector on your 2016 Subaru Crosstrek to a 6- or 7-Way as well as add a brake controller to power the electric brakes on your cargo trailer. I highly recommend using the 7-Way Upgrade Kit # ETBC7L for all the needed wiring to make this happen and the Curt Echo # C51180 to serve as your brake controller. The wiring kit is designed specifically for vehicles like your Crosstrek that are already equipped with a 4-Way. The 7-Way harness...

  • How to Wire 4-Pole to 7-Way Adapter and Install Brake Controller on Subaru with 4-Pole Harness
    It looks like your Outback has a 4-pole-to-7-way adapter like # 37185 installed which plugs in to your existing 4-pole wiring to pass along the 4-pole's lighting signals. To activate the additional circuits in the 7-way new wired connections need to be made to support those additional functions. If you refer to the linked photo of adapter # 37185 you'll see the three pigtail leads provided for making those additional circuit connections for brake controller output, 12V auxiliary trailer...

    Thanks for the tip! We normally only post questions and answers in this section but the info you gave is very helpful so we definitely want it to be accessible to our customers! "I removed the luggage tie down fitting by the wheel arch, which provided a hole to see through as well as allowing the side panel lining to spring out from the side so that I could get my hand in.

  • 7-Way connector for a 2009 Subaru Forester
    To get the 7-way connector to the rear of your 2009 Subaru Forester you will need to use the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, item # 118467, and then install the Adapter 4 Pole to 7 Pole and 4 Pole, item # 37185. When you install the Adapter you will have to wire a 12 volt power wire from the number 4 pole in the 7-Way, to the vehicle battery (see link). Use a 40 amp circuit breaker, item # PK54540, with 10 gauge wire to protect the trailer and vehicle. We offer a Brake Controller 7...

  • Wiring Harness Connector for 2019 Subaru XV Crosstrek
    The T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118467 is the correct harness for a 2019 Subaru XV Crosstrek, and the tow plug connector is behind the driver's side trim panel. I believe you are asking about blue tape because that is what the photos in the linked instructions have, but tape color is not specified in the manual for a Crosstrek (or Forester), only an Outback. I have cut out the portion of the instructions that detail this. From your photo, you have...

  • Installation of Wiring Harness in Rear Cargo Area Instead of Underneath Vehicle on Subaru Outback
    A trailer's wiring harness, like # 118467 doesn't necessarily have to be stored in the rear cargo area. However, in a lot of vehicles there isn't access out of the rear cargo to underneath. It's also better for the wiring to keep it out of the elements and in the dry cargo area for its own protection. This will help avoid any corrosion or damage from debris. The rubber strip along the rear hatch's frame will allow you to safely close the hatch while using the harness.

  • Plug and Play Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2013 Subaru Outback 2.5 Premium
    It sounds like the shop installed a hardwire harness with a powered converter that would require a direct connection to the vehicle battery. Harness # 118467 does not require a connection to the battery because the power wire is part of the factory wiring this harness plugs into. The wire you are talking about under the car should have been secured with loom clamps, or even zip ties. Perhaps this shop needs to take a look at the FAQ article I wrote which I have linked to the right on...
