Review of Tekonsha Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring 119250KIT


Today, we're going to be taking a look at the ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness with a 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector. It's also going to come with the installation kit. This product is from Tekonsha. This unit's going to allow you to install a 4-way flat trailer connector on your vehicle without cutting or splicing into the vehicle wiring system. It's going to feature Zero Contact Interface sensors. That's going to be these components right connected to the end of the wires. These identify the current flowing through each wire simply by clamping onto the wire.

Again, no cutting or splicing in the wiring system is needed. The unit's going to provide your 4-way flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer signal lights. This is compatible with 5-pull, 6-pull, and 7-pull adapters. Adapters are sold separately. It's going to come with a dust cap for the 4-way flat connector. That way, you can cover up the connection points when the plug's not being used.

You'll see here that we have plenty of wiring for the 4-way flat connector. I just have it all bundled up to keep it nice and tight for our video. Now, another main feature of this system is that it's designed to bypass the factory wiring. Again, no cutting, no splicing, and no plugging into the vehicle's wiring is needed. It's going to have these really unique sensors. These are going to clamp onto the wires of your factory tail light wiring harness, and that's going to be what detects the current.

The sensors are epoxy-filled to protect the sensors from the elements. No feedback, no interference with, and no power draw from your vehicle's wiring system. The unit's also going to include a circuit tester to insure proper set up. Again, once you have the wires ran through there . They got the little groove so they can sit in there nicely .. all you got to do is clamp that down until it snaps into place.

Then, it's going come with these foam pieces of tape. You wrap those around the center and that's going insure that they won't move around during operation. Simply wrap the foam tape around the sensor after the connections have been made. Now, this unit's also designed to automatically shut off if it detects a short or overload so it's completely designed for safety and to protect your system. Another neat feature about the unit is that it's easily removable and transferable between different vehicles. It's going the circuit protected module. That's going to connect directly to the vehicle battery for power. Comes with everything necessary to make that connection. This unit is designed to work with 2-wire, 3-wire pulse width modulation or PWM and multiplex wiring systems. It's going to work with standard incandescent tail light bulbs and LEDs. It's going to be constructed using surface mount technology for consistent reliable performance. What that does is it maximizes the trailer light yield and intensity while producing minimal heat and it insures superior operation even in rougher conditions. Now, this does feature a universal design and the system is designed to work on almost any vehicle. Just make sure that the vehicle operates on a 12 volt negative ground system, and you should be set to go. When it comes to the maximum amperage for the stop and turn light, it's capable up to 4.2 amps per circuit. For the tail lights, it's capable of up to 7.5 amps per circuit. When it comes to the installation, it's pretty simple. It's going to come with detailed installation instructions to walk you through that process step by step. Basically, what you need to do is you would need to connect these sensors onto the correct wires of your vehicle's wiring system. Each sensor's going to be labelled. This one says, "Left turn". This one says, "Right turn." They're color coded. This one says, "Stop," and this one says, "Tail." That shows you the functions of those sensors. You got plenty of wiring to work with. Again, I just have it all bundled up for video purposes, but you should not have any issue reaching the connection areas. Plenty of wiring is available with this system. Connect the sensors and again, they include the circuit tester right here so you can detect the correct wires that you're making the connections to. Once you get all those connected, you'll need to mount the box. You can do that using some double sided foam tape. You can do it using zip ties. It's also got a mount hole right here that you can use a screw to get it installed, but you want to get that mounted to a nice, clean, out-of-the location. Then, you'll also need to make a ground connection. That's going to be your white wire. Has a ring terminal already attached to it. The unit's going to come with a grounding screw so you can easily get that connected. Then, you'll need to run a hot lead to the vehicle battery. That's going to be the black wire coming out of the box. You would connect this to the bundle of black wire with one included butt connectors. The other end of the black wire gets connected to one half of the fuse holder with another butt connector. The other end of the fuse holder gets a ring terminal attached to it and gets connected to the positive post to the vehicle battery. It's got the fuse cap here. The 15 amp fuse goes directly in there. Close the cap. It's going to keep it safe and protected. Then, you would need to secure the excess or slack in the wiring with the included zip ties. It's going to come with a whole bunch of those to get your wires safely secure and up and out of the way. Once your installation is complete, the 4-way connector's going to be stowed in an out-of-the-way location, either within your cargo area or beneath the vehicle in the other trailer hitch. If you choose to mount the connector in the other hitch, we do recommend using a mounting bracket. Those are available here at etrailer.com with variety to choose from, and they are sold separately. It's also recommended that you use a small amount of dielectric grease in all your electrical connections like the 4-pull connector. That's really going to help prevent corrosion to those connection points. That's sold separately as well, and you can find it right here in etrailer.com. That's going to do for today's look at the ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness with a 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector and installation kit.
