What Do I Need to Wire a Basic 4-Way Trailer Connector on a 1996 Toyota Tacoma Pickup

Question:

I have a 1996 Toyota Tacoma and want to wire a standard 4 pin trailer connector. What do I need? Do I have to have a converter box for this truck or can I just wire the 4 pin to the truck harness?

Expert Reply:

Since the 1996 Toyota Tacoma has separate turn and brake signals, a converter is necessary. Fortunately, there is a plug-and-play harness, part # 118379, available for your Tacoma that makes installing very easy. It simply plugs in-line with the tail light connectors behind the tail light housings. Then you connect the ground wire to a good ground point on the truck frame and you are done.

I have added a link to the part and a video of it being installed on a 2000 Tacoma. I have also included a link to the instructions.
