Is Any Programming Required When Installing The Tekonsha 4-Way On a 2013 Audi Q5


Good Day, I’m looking to install a hitch and wiring on my wife’s 2013 Audi Q5. I don’t believe it has factory hitch wiring. Do your kits need any special programming or anything from the dealer to work correctly? Thanks

Installing the Tekonsha Upgraded Heavy Duty ModuLite Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness # 119190KIT on your wifes 2013 Audi Q5 will not require any additional programming from the dealer. The kit simply ties into the tail light wiring for a signal input. It then takes power from the vehicle battery to send to the trailer light through the 4-way flat connector. This prevents any added strain on the wiring in your Q5.

If you are planning to use the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13136 then you can use the Mounting Brackets # 18140 and # 18144 to secure the 4-way to the cross tube on the receiver.
