Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation 2012 Toyota Highlander with VIN That Indicates Tow Package


When looking at buying the wiring for the hitch Im looking to purchase I found this question to answer which one, but when I run the VIN it indicates my Toyota has the factory tow prep package. Is that what is being referred to below, or is the prep package something different than the tow package referred to for the #56042? How to Determine if a 2012 Toyota Highlander has a Factory Tow Package Question: How do you know if your 2012 Highlander has the factory tow package or not? Expert Reply: The best way to determine if your 2012 Toyota Highlander has a factory tow package is to have a Toyota dealer run the VIN number in their computer system. They can tell you how the vehicle is equipped that way. If they say you do not have the tow package use harness # 118449. If you do have the factory tow package use # 56042.


Expert Reply:

Yes, what you found by giving your VIN to a Toyota dealer is the relevant info for picking out trailer wiring. So that means the Curt trailer wiring kit part # 56042 would be all that you'd need to have a 4-way. This easily plugs into a port at the rear of your vehicle and you'd be set.

I attached an install video for this kit for you to check out as well.
