I called Tekonsha about the T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 7-Way Trailer Connector part # 118288 for your 2017 Honda Ridgeline and they have not had any instances in which the tow package wiring was not present. They stated all of these trucks came with the factory tow package wiring regardless of options.

If you take a look at the attached photo of the instructions for the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 7-Way Trailer Connector part # C56366 which installs in the same way as the above then this may help you as there are a bit more photos and a better description of where the plug is located.

If you still cannot find the plug even with the additional instructions then I am afraid you will need to take the vehicle into the dealer to have them locate the plug for you as we would not have any other options.

Question:

So I went to the dealer and they pulled a Honda repair notice from their computer . On there the instructions show to remove the entire rear seat then pull the back panel/trim up away from the driver side and the plug will be there attached with tape to the back metal body panel….so I found the plug and it was hidden there as the notice indicates. Big job in removing the seat and panel!
