Parts Needed to Add a 4-Way or 7-Way Trailer Connector to a 2012 Honda Pilot


I have a 2012 Honda Piolt that came with a factory installed hitch pre wired for trailer connector. I want to install the trailer connector but I dont know what I need? I looked under the bumper and the plug is there for a trailer connector to plug into but dont know if I need a relay fuses or anything else can youhelp me?

Expert Reply:

Since your 2012 Honda Pilot is pre-wired for a trailer connector but did not come with a trailer connector, you will need to use wiring harness # 118558. This harness comes with everything you will need to add a 4-Way trailer connector including the converter and relays. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view.

To add a 7-Way, you would need to use the above harness and then install # ETBC7. I have included some links that explain the ETBC7 installation.
