Question:

2010 KIA Sportage V6, The wiring harness is close to the exhaust that have melted Installation, is there there something I can wrap the wiring in to help shield from the heat when I re-install the wiring harness. I also live in the mountains and have to endure salt on the roads all winter. I believe I have a Curt hitch, I can only find the install receipt. Thanks for your help,

Helpful Expert Reply:

I am sorry to hear that!

Based on how damaged the harness you have installed on your 2010 Kia Sportage V6 is due to the heat from the exhaust you would benefit from replacing the entire harness, as the damage in your first picture is pretty severe.

I recommend going with the Tekonsha # 118401 and wrapping the harness with some exhaust wrap which you can pick up from your local auto parts store. In addition to that I recommend trying to keep the harness as far away from the exhaust as possible as I am sure you are already aware.

I included a video of the # 118401 for you to take a look at.
