Do I Need a Tail Light Converter?

Difference between 2 wire systems and 3 wire systems

Some s operate on a 3-wire system, wherein the brake signal and the turn signals run on separate wires to illuminate different lights. (Typically, these s have amber turn signals.) But most trailers run on a 2-wire system, which means the brake and turn signals travel along a single wire. You'll notice that, on your trailer, the brake light will flash for the turn signals.


If your operates on a 3-wire system, it will need to be converted so it will be compatible with the wiring system of your trailer. This is where a tail light converter comes into play. This converter lets you combine the brake and turn signal functions of your so they run on a single wire to properly activate your trailer's tail lights.


If you have LED tail lights on your and incandescent lights on your trailer, you'll need some voltage regulation to make sure that your trailer lights get the power they need to activate. This converter will do just that. LED lights are more energy-efficient and require less power than incandescent lights, so the converter will adjust the power accordingly, ensuring that your trailer lights will activate no matter what type of bulbs your has - or your trailer, for that matter.

Tail Light Converter Installation

To begin the installation, use the included circuit tester to double-check the function of each wire on your 's tail light wiring harness. The color/function of the splice-in wires on this converter may not match the color/function of those on your , so you'll want to be sure to check all of the wire functions first. Once you've figured out the functions of your 's wiring, use the included quick-splice connectors to connect the corresponding wires on the trailer connector. Quick-splices, or "wire taps," offer a quick way to make connections without you having to strip and twist wires. Just place the wires in one of the taps and snap the cover down.


Use double-sided tape to stick the converter box to a flat surface inside your near the tail lights. It's helpful to clean the surface first so the tape can adhere fully.


How to find a grounding point

Find a raw, unpainted metal surface to use as a grounding point and secure the white ground wire with a self-tapping screw (sold separately). Cleaning the surface prior to securing the white wire will ensure the converter is fully grounded. Finally, secure the converter wires to your using cable ties (sold separately).


Quick Tip:

  • Butt connectors - especially heat-shrink ones - provide the most secure, longest-lasting connection, so we'd recommend you grab a few and swap them out for the quick-splices in this kit.
  • Use a circuit tester on the plug terminals once the harness is installed to make sure everything's working. There's nothing worse than figuring out that you have a bad ground or a faulty connection right before you're about to hit the road.
  • Be sure to put a little bit of dielectric grease on the 4-way plug to protect the terminals from dirt, grime, and corrosion.

It worked after modification. No tester or wire connectors in package. Description
It included them. That's called false advertising! !

Works great for my 2006 Honda Element, and video was incredibly helpful. Wish the green wire (for running to right turn signal) was longer; had to splice another wire on to extend it. Otherwise perfect, and a great value!

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.

Wires weren't marked as to what was
what, with exception of one. figured they were pretty much standard wiring colors for trailer, still had to find out to make sure. Little included circuit tester works well, saves time having to find mine. Other then the unmarked wires, product works well. That's why I dropped it one from top rating

Great wiring harness at a great price. A little difficult to install (not the wires fault, it was all due to the car itself, which was virtually impossible to access the rear wiring) however, once I got to the wires, the install was very simple. I could have used some paperwork telling me what the wires were, but I read other reviews beforehand saying the same thing, so I was not surprised. I LOVED the included tester! VERY fast shipping, too!

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.

Thanks a bunch for the great product!

Throughout our order, etrailer kept us up to date on it's packing and shipment of the products we ordered, including the tracking number. We received our order quickly (about six days). We ordered the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" - 75089, and the Upgraded Circuit Protected Tail Light Converter Hardwire Kit w/ 4-Pole Connector and Circuit Tester - 119178KIT for our 1997 Mercury Villager, an older van with a lot of life still left in it. Both arrived in excellent condition. The next day I installed both items. The Trailer Hitch Receiver took me about an hour. The only problem was getting it angled so I could slip it over the tail pipe, but once up it fit perfectly. Bolts went in nicely, though the space is a bit tight for the tools I owned to tighten them. Still, there was no problem patience did not solve. The video instructions were excellent, and the paper instructions helped me see what direction the washers should go. For the Protected Tail Light Converter Hardwire Kit, the video instructions were invaluable. Though I used the tester to be sure, the wiring descriptions and placement were on the money. There were a couple minor issues that were easy to correct. The green wire that goes to the right turn signal is a bit short. Though I could not attach it to the wiring by the connector, there was no problem cutting off the lower wrap and attaching it to the proper wire at the bottom of the bundle. When I hooked it up to my trailer for a test, the break lights did not work. I took off the splice connector for the break wire, and when I did the clip broke. The metal bar that should have cut through the wire jacket did not cut all the way through. However, the kit comes with a spare splice clip. I installed the new clip in the same spot as the old and perfection! I was set. The trailer hitch receiver was a bit heavy, but as long as you can lift some weight on your back there should be no problem (I work a desk job, get little exercise and I am close to 60). I am extremely pleased with the whole experience. The quality appears excellent and I saved $200 to 300 dollars I would have spent at UHaul. That's money I can now use for some fun in our boat!

I would not say this was an "easy" install, but for the significant savings in cost of an OEM harness it was worth it. The OEM harness had to be installed by running from front to back under the drivers so the time involved may be a wash.

Buyers need to understand this unit must be installed by tapping into the existing rear lights by opening up the driver and passenger side panels in the rear compartment (next to the spare tire wheel well). If you do not want to mount the "harness box" inside the spare tire compartment, there is a great place behind the driver side panel, however, you will have to lengthen the right turn signal wire (green) to reach the right light.

I ran the 4 plug trailer harness through the license plate rubber plug by cutting a slit in the plug and running the 4 wire set through it. The bumper will have to be removed (don't have to take off bumper cover) by removing the 2 screws on each side of the bumper. Depending on how you route the harness through the metal bumper frame that is now exposed, and how long of a tag end you want, you may have to lengthen the 4 wire set with a splice, I did. You may be able to avoid any splice by mounting in the spare tire compartment.

Trailer lights are bright, no dimming at all.

Honda Element

I bought this wiring along with the HiddenHitch, hitch ball, and ball mount. The wiring assembly was clearly marked but the wire colors don't match up with the Honda Element's wires- no big deal, just use the little doodad thing that is included that lights up when you poke the right wire. (I obviously got a friend who knew what they were doing to do that part.)

The most problematic part was figuring out how to route the wires to the brake lights- I looked at the video clips provided, but they were only somewhat helpful given that none of them were Honda Elements. I ultimately came up with something much simpler (a 1/4" drill bit is a beautiful thing) that took far less time. The only thing on the wiring assembly that would be more helpful is if the green wire that goes to the right tail light was about 3 inches longer.

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.




























by:

This product worked exactly as advertised- it spliced in well to my car's existing electrical system and provided the appropriate signals to the trailer. Combined with a shop manual for my car, it was trivial to set up and install.

That said, I have some concerns about the long-term viability of the splice connectors used- it seems like a design that would allow corrosion to start in the electrical system. When I have time, I'm thinking of switching to a more robust solution that would probably involve soldered and sealed connections. That said, for a quick-and-dirty lighting solution, this kit works very well.

The wiring kit wqs easy to install because etrailer's video did a good job of explaining what to do.

They are GREAT and, since we have a new car, Im planning on buying another hitch and wiring in the next few days.



by:

took a bit to figure out how to get it over both bumper screws. turned out i need to do the one opposite the exhaust 1st. had to disconnect the mount for the fuel line/filter. after installation the fuel line/filter mount plate doesn't fit into the frame but since the arm for the hitch goes through the fuel line/filter assembly it kinda doesn't matter, the hitch is holding everything up.

getting those bolts and plates together seemed impossible at 1st. i ended up tying some box string around the tip of the bolt (wrapping around the threading), taped off the tip to keep the string on, and dabbed some oil onto the bolt. then i thread the string through the plate opening and shoved 1st the bolt then the plate into the access hole on the car frame. this way i was able to line up the plate hole and gentle work the bolt back to the hole, then vertical to drop through the opening. i had to use a thin allen key to move things around as well but it worked and honestly it was super easy, took 5 min/bolt including taping off the string.

I'm very pleased with all of my purchases from eTrailer. Everything has seemed to be of excellent quality and value. The wiring kits and directions were very well thought out and one of the projects I completed would not have been possible had it not been for the excellent videos on the website.

I'm an eTrailer customer for life!



by:
2009 Honda Civic

Product arrived in 3-days using the least expensive ship offering. The instructions were very well done. The hitch mounted on the Honda Civic with zero issues. The secret was reading ALL of the instructions.

The wiring kit was complete and worked perfectly. It did not include instructions, but it is a rather straight forward process splicing the labeled wires to the appropriate car wires.

This is my second kit from etrailer and I'll be back when I purchase another vehicle in need of a receiver hitch.

2006 Honda Element

Ordered the 119175KIT for my 2006 Honda Element EX. Ordered on a Tuesday with two day shipping, item was shipped on Wed and I received my package on Friday. I watched the etrailer.com installation videos and did some additional research on how to get to the Element wiring, and was on my way. Took my time with the installation and the entire process went smoothly. Rented my Uhaul trailer on Monday, plugged in and hit the road. The included wiring tester was key. Also, there are no paper instructions included with this kit. The etrailer.com videos are key.

I would definitely go with etrailer.com again.

2005 Suzuki Forenza

I have a 2005 Suzuki Forenza Wagon. I tried to get the hitch wiring installed by U-Haul (don't do it for my car) and a Suzuki Dealer (couldn't or wouldn't figure it out). Finally I found this wiring kit. I watched the video on the web page and gave it a try. Done in 45 minutes - exceptionally simple. Tester worked great identifying the right wire to connect to. Why oh why did I just not do this in the first place. Also the eTrailer site did a great job recommending the right part for my particualr make/model of car.



by:
2007 Toyota Avalon

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).



by:

Very easy to install since I was replacing an existing etrailer wiring harness that was electrically damaged by a friend's trailer (that one had a short). Took only about 15 minutes to cut out the old one and splice in this new one. I tried it on my trailer and it works properly. I recommend this one since it has overload protection which helps me since I tow trailers that I borrow from friends and never really know the condition of the wiring.



by:

Medium degree installation for this product. I suggest watching the video a few times prior to installing. You may need extra equipment like screws, braided write, and zip ties.

That's why we recommend bypassing it with a hardwired trailer wiring harness like part # 119178KIT. Which you can then wire to the 7-way of the truck.
