Trailer Wiring Recommendation for Kia Soul and How to Make Adapter to Tow Trailer w Separate Wiring


I am looking at purchasing a wire kit for a tow hitch on a 2015 Kia Soul, All of the wiring kits you have for this car have a converter so it goes from the five wire to a four wire flat so it combines the brake and turn together but I need the five wire where the brake and turn are separate for the trailer we have, it is a Quick Camp trailer that is usually pulled behind a motorcycle. what is the solution?

Basically, you will have to make an adapter. You will need 3 important parts.

First you will need a vehicle to vehicle converter # 118158. Next, a trailer side 4-Way, # 18004. And finally a vehicle side 5-Way, # 20016. It will be assembled like in the picture I have provided using butt connectors like # 05731-5. If the trailer has incandescent bulbs then this harness is limited to 1 brake/running light (dual filament bulb) and 1 turn signal bulb per trailer side.

For trailer wiring for your 2015 Kia Soul with LED taillights you would want the Tow Ready harness part # 118637.
