Does the Tekonsha T-One # 118449 Need to be Used for 2012 Toyota Highlander Without Front Converter  


question one. I just installed your hitch worked well order **** but I looked under the dash and theres a big white plug but I dont see any brick shape that looks like a converter. wife swears it was supposed to come w pre-tow package so I just have the T-connect Wiring Harness- Highlander W/tow do I need the bigger package w the front converter? question two: I looked at the fuse box and doesnt seem to have a fuse where your video shows one being ed. how do I know which slot needs a new fuse? thanks


Expert Reply:

I'm glad that you like the Trailer Hitch Receiver # E98858 and Curt Class III Ball Mount Kit # C45036 that you purchased for your 2012 Toyota Highlander.

When it comes to the Curt T-Connector # 56042 that you purchased, you can verify whether your Highlander is equipped with the tow package by contacting your local Toyota dealer with your VIN but the picture you sent in indicates that you don't have the tow package for your Highlander.

If you find that your Highlander does not have the tow package then you will need to use the Tekonsha T-One # 118449 instead which comes with the converter for the front plus the 10A fuse that you will install in location 29 of your fuse block (as shown in the linked installation video for the T-One). I verified in an online version of your owner's manual that location 29 is for the trailer lights.
