Video Transcript for Curt Wiring 55151 Review

Today we're going to review part number 55151. This is the Curt Powered Converter Wiring Kit. Now this kit will provide the wire that needs to be run to the vehicle battery to power the lights on your trailer. This kit is designed to work with all powered converter wiring harnesses and includes the necessary ring terminals, connectors to complete the installation of the power converter wiring harness. This is made to go with the part number 56146. I've got an example of that here. This is the powered converter right here. This part number will require this wiring kit to be connected to your vehicle.

Basically what you end up doing, this kit, first let me show you what it includes in this kit and then I'm going to show you how that wires up. This kit will include 20 feet of 12 gauge wire. It includes this inline fuse holder, a 10 amp fuse, a 3/8 inch diameter ring terminal, a couple of butt connectors, a grounding screw, some cable ties to take up any slack in the wiring and a large piece of double face tape. Basically when you use these parts to install your power converter, what you'll do is again, the double face tape is used to put on your converter, to attach it to a spot so it doesn't move around. Now there is a white wire that comes out of your converter with a ring terminal on it. You can use the grounding screw for that. Then the black wire is the power or battery wire that needs to run to the front of your battery. Just like that, so what you end up doing is you'll take this extra length of wire and you'll take one end of it, use one of the butt connectors and you'll attach that just like that. Then you'll run this length of wire up to the front of your vehicle to attach to your battery. Then the other end, see where the other ...

There it is, right there. Once you run this other end up there and before you attach it to the battery, you want to run it through this inline fuse holder. Again, you'll take another butt connector, attach it one side of the fuse holder and then on the other side you'll put this ring terminal and then that's what will attach to your positive posts of your battery. Then before you hook everything up, you just open up your inline fuse holder, take your 10 amp included fuse, push it into the fuse holder, put the cap back on it. Then you'll be all ready to go. Then like I say with these cable ties, if there's any wire hanging down, you can take it up with the cable ties. That's how this wiring kit would work with the 56146 power converter kit. That should do it for the review on part number 55151, the Curt Powered Converter Wiring Kit.

Powered Converter Wiring Kit - 55151

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (25 Customer Reviews)


Excellent customer service! Needed a replacement for one that didn't work, they were able to send me a new one incredible fast.


Have purchased a number of hitches and wire harness for a number of different vehicles I have owned. All products were easy to install and worked perfectly . The instructions were clear and quality of their products is top notch. I have used their customer service to ensure I was ordering the right product for a older vehicle (75 Toyota Landcruiser) they were patient and ensured I got the right set . Their customer service is matched by their pricing and that would be hard to beat . Delivery (Canada) was exceptionally fast. Probably not my last order and I have recommended this company and their products to my friends. If your considering a purchase I don't think you will be disappointed and you will be saving lots of money doing it yourself.


Just what is needed. Took one star off because the yellow battery crimp connector is a bit shallow, missed it and had to get another from autozone.


This is a very complex way to tap the taillight system to hook up two trailer lights but----- welcome to the 21st century.


This was very helpful with the install. Easy to run to battery underneath with car on jack stands.


Contained everything pictured and worked well for running power to the powered tail light converter


yes,it is nothing more than 12ga wire plus a couple of terminals,
it comes 20' long most places only do 16' is easy to cut,
how do you stretch ?
besides,it was inexpensive to buy


Everyhting I ordered was shipped and received on time. I also had an installation question which was answered the next day. This is what I call great customer service from a company that sells quality products. Thank you.


As described, the piece I needed to finish the wiring on my vw rabbit


I purchased this, but never used it due to the fact that I ran power in a way that I didn't need it.

Chris P.


How did you run power if you dont mind me asking. Ready to install mine now


I did not need this as everything I needed was in the electronics kit. Your site said this was needed.

A good deal. Right price. Name Brand. Exactly what I wanted. Arrived when indicated. Felt slow due to holidays and weekend. A few days...

Delivered quickly, complete and undamag ed.

  • Is In-Line Fuse Needed When Installing Wiring Harness on 2010 Volkswagen CC
    Yes, you will want to install an in-line fuse close to the battery when running a power wire directly from the battery to the converter. When installing Wiring Harness on your 2010 Volkswagen CC you will want to use the Curt Powered Converter Wiring Kit, part # 55151, to run the separate wire to the battery.

  • Does Curt Trailer Wiring Harness for 2020 Toyota Camry Hybrid Require 55151 Install Harness
    For your 2020 Toyota Camry Hybrid the Curt trailer wiring harness part # C85FV is a confirmed fit. The wiring harness part # 55151 is required to run the power wire up to the battery as well. It is confusing that it shows as "not a fit" for your vehicle but I can assure you it does.

  • How to Determine What Wires Get Run to Curt Wiring Harness # 56201
    We don't have wire color info for your 2009 Audi A4, but to install the Curt Wiring Harness # 56201 all you would need is a circuit tester like part # PTW2993 so that you can test the function of each of the wires so that you can wire it up correctly to your vehicle.

  • What is the Difference Between the Curt C56190 and C59236 for 2011 Audi SQ5
    I can see why this might be confusing. The Curt # C59236 is a complete wiring kit that comes with the wire to run from the converter module to the battery, where if you went with the Curt # C56190 you would also need the Powered Converter Wiring Kit # 55151 for the wiring and fuse to run to the battery. The Curt # C59236 also has a slightly higher amp rating for the tail lights/turn signals, so I recommend going with that-it's also a complete kit so there's no need to worry about adding...

  • Adding Interior and Exterior Work Lights to Livestock Trailer
    Considering how you'll likely be using this, if you don't already have an auxilliary battery on your trailer, you'll need to add one. You'll want a 12v battery, which can be sourced from a number of different places, but I recommend something that can at least handle around 50 amp hours. This eliminates the chance that you run your vehicle battery down and get stranded somewhere, in addition to straining that battery and creating the need for replacing it much sooner than you normally would...

  • Wiring A Furrion Camera System To Work While Not Hooked Up To The Tow Vehicle
    Your trailer is only going to have power running to the running light and reverse light circuits (one of which is powering your camera) while hooked up to the truck. To bypass this you can wire the lights to the battery using two diodes # RM-792 (to prevent feedback), an in-line fuse # 55151, a switch # 37212225 to control the power running to the camera as needed, and some wiring. You'll want to splice the power wire from this switch together with the power wire already running to your...

  • Can I Wire My Curt Wiring Converter Kit Differently On 2010 Jetta Sportwagen
    You will want to wire the powered converter directly to the battery at the front of the vehicle so that there is a constant power source from the battery and not the vehicle's electrical system. The power wire is ran to the battery so that it is not pulling power from the electrical system but directly from the battery. In addition to running the power wire to the battery, you will need to use a circuit tester, part # PTW2993 to find the taillight functions of each wire. You will need...

  • Does the Wire Need to Be Run to Battery of a 2010 Volkswagen CC to Install Trailer Wiring
    Sounds like you are asking if it is necessary to run the power wire of the Curt Wiring Harness part # C56200KIT to the positive side of your battery since the part # 55151 is just the portion of the harness that runs to the battery. You will have to run this wire for the wiring harness to function properly. The reason it is needed is to protect the delicate wiring of your vehicle. The # C59236 uses the taillight circuits of your CC as signal wires only and draws all of the amperage for...

  • Can Trailer Running Lights be Powered Off of a Battery When Not Connected to a Trailer
    I do have a way that you can wire the lights on the trailer so that they will come on when connected to the tow vehicle or off of a battery on the trailer. What you will need to do is add 2 diodes, # RM-792, to the wiring set up. You will also need a switch, # D16740, and a wiring installation kit # 55151. I have included a diagram of how this should all be wired. Basically the wiring to the light will come from 2 sources; the trailer connector, and the battery via a switch. The diode...

  • Recommended Hitch and 4-Way Wiring for 2022 Mazda CX-5
    It definitely makes more sense to go with the # C56496 and # 55151. The only difference between this combination and the # C59496 (aside from cost) is the addition of a circuit tester. If you want a circuit tester you could add the # PTW2993 and still come out on top. If you haven't decided on a hitch yet, I recommend the etrailer # e98902 for your 2022 Mazda CX-5. My favorite thing about this hitch is the matte black finish. This gives it an OEM look that tends to blend in better on vehicles....

    I'm not sure which video you're speaking of, but I've confirmed with Curt that the # C56190 is indeed the correct taillight converter for your 2013 Q5. The # 55151 wiring kit is also needed to make the fused connection at the battery. I've provided you with a diagram showing an install diagram. There should be 5 wires exiting the 'input' side of the converter, a white ground wire, brown for running lights, yellow for left turn, red for brake light, green for right turn and black to the...

  • Troubleshooting Installation Of Curt C56496 On A 2023 Chevy Bolt EV
    I did not see any mention of connecting the black wire on the converter. In order for the Curt # C56496 to function properly, you will need to connect the black wire to the battery in order to power the converter. If you do not have the black wire connected this will explain why you are getting low voltage out of the converter. You can use the wiring kit # 55151 to run power to the converter module.

In the case of a bike rack, you would attach the strap between the upright bar of the bike rack and the rear door on your 2010 Mini Cooper.
