Parts Needed to Install 7-Way Wiring on a 2014 Audi Q5


I need to install wiring on my 2014 Audi Q5 with a 7 pin trailer connection. I am only finding 4 pin options. Can you help me out?

While there are no plug and play type 7-Way connectors for your 2014 Audi Q5, we still have the parts you need to get a 7-Way installed so you can tow your trailer.

To start off you need the 4-Way and for that I recommend going with the Tekonsha ModuLite # 119190KIT or the Tekonsha ZCI # 119250KIT. The ModuLite is a standard splice-in type of installation while the ZCI uses special connectors that clip over your OEM wiring and prevent you from having to cut into any OEM wiring. Both options do require that a 12V power wire be run to your vehicle battery to power the trailer lights.

From there it just depends on what you're needing out of a 7-Way:

If you just need the 7-Way for the connection for the lights then use the Curt Adapter # C57672.

If you just need to add a 12V power wire for your trailer battery then use the Wiring Upgrade Kit # ETBC7L.

If you need a fully functional 7-Way then use the Universal Wiring Kit # ETBC7.

To hang the 7-Way to your trailer hitch you can use the No-Drill Mount Bracket # 18136.

I have attached review and installation videos for you to check out.
