Review of Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring C56352


Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Curt T-connector vehicle wiring harness with the 4-pole flat trailer connector. This product fits a 2016-2017 Fiat 500X. To ensure that this is a fit for your vehicle, you can always use the vehicle fit guide at etrailer.com. Now this unit provides a 4-way flat connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights.It is compatible with 5-pole, 6-pole, and 7-pole adapters. Adapters are sold separately. All the wires run to this black box.

This is the taillight converter box. It ensures that your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailers. The power module connects directly to the vehicle battery through the wiring, to avoid overloading the vehicle's electrical system.Now it is constructed using surface mount technology for consistent, reliable performance. And what that means, is it maximizes the trailer yield and intensity while producing minimal heat. And it also ensures superior operation, even in rough road conditions.

And the unit is designed to connect quickly and easily. You don't have to worry about cutting or splicing any wires. Just locate the connection points behind the taillights, and then you'll need to plug in your connectors. So one goes to the passenger side of the vehicle, the other one goes to the driver side.These are custom fit for your vehicle. So they're going to match up perfectly.

And they're going to snap lock together for a nice, tight, secure fit. The product also comes with detailed installation instructions, to help walk you through the whole process step by step. But what you'll do, is you'll located connection points, plug in your connectors, and then make a ground connection.Your ground wire's the white wire, with the ring terminal already attached to it. You want to get that grounded at a suitable grounding location. You can do that with the included grounding screw.

And then you'll need to mount the converter box to a safe, out-of-the-way location. You can do that using the large zip tie, as well as the double sided adhesive foam tape.Once you have that done, you'll need to run the hot lead to the vehicle battery. The hot lead is the short, black wire. This gets connected to one end of the bundle, with one of the included butt connectors. The other end of the bundle runs to the vehicle battery, gets another butt connector attached to it. It then connects to one half of the fuse holder. So, you'll cut this, and then you'll connect one wire to the butt connector, the other wire gets a ring terminal attached to it, and gets connected to the positive post of the vehicle battery.It does come with your 15 amp fuse, goes directly in here. And it's got the cap that goes over to keep it safe and protected. Once you have all that done, you can secure any access, or slack in your wiring with the included cable ties. And then once your install is complete, the 4-way connector will be stowed in an out-of-the-way location, within the trunk of the vehicle.It does come with a dust cap here, so you can cover up the connection points when your plugs not being used. It's also recommended that you use a small amount of dielectric grease in all your electrical connections, like the plugs on the vehicle, and the 4-pole connector itself. That grease is specifically designed to help prevent corrosion to the connection points. It is sold separately and available at etrailer.com.When it comes to the maximum amperage for the stop and turn lights, we're looking at three amps per circuit. And for the taillights, we're looking at six amps per circuit. That's going to do it for today's look at the Curt T-connector vehicle wiring harness with the 4-pole flat trailer connector.
