How to Locate the Reverse Sensor Connector on a 2018 Honda Pilot


My plug is not working and I have the blue plug. My vehicle has back up sensors and there is no plugin for the blue plug?

There are two connectors on the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package part # 118760 that you will need to plug into your 2018 Honda Pilot in order to activate the wiring harness. There is one with several wires that contains the functions for taillights and there is one that only contains one blue wire which is for the reverse sensors so they can still function.

The installation instructions for this wiring harness state to just remove the access panel inside of the storage compartment on the driver’s side. Once you do so you should see both connectors but if you cannot locate the second connector you will want to pry the entire side panel back as the second connector may not be visible by just removing the small access panel.

On the 2019 Honda Pilot there should be a second connector for the backup sensor. The second connector is not located near the first connector. I pulled back the side panel and looked all around that area. I found no second connector. Any additional guidance to find the second connector?70005

I reached out to my contact at Tekonsha to see if maybe the reverse sensor plug can be hidden (or possibly located somewhere else altogether) and he said that if it's present it should be right next to the main harness plug. If you peeled back the whole side panel and can't see anything, your Pilot just might not be equipped with the backup sensors (not all are). 57109
