How to Install the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness on a 2011 Honda CR-V


Hi, I'm Shane with etrailer.com. Today you're going to be taking a look at and I'm going to walk through the installation of the Curt simple plug in vehicle wiring harness for your 2011 Honda CRV. This wiring harness is going to give us our four pole plug, brake lights, turn signals, and running lights. It's going to give us three amps per circuit for our stop and turn signals. Five amps per circuit for the tail lights, it's going to have a nice dust cap. It's going to help protect our wiring from dirt and debris.

And this is meant to be stored inside the vehicle. So when we're not using it, we simply roll it up so we can store it in and out of the way compartment and with our spare tire.When ready to use it, we pull it out. We're gonna run it right over this rubber seal. Make sure you stay away from any connections. Close our hatch and we hook up to our trailer.

A lot of the questions that we get is, is this wiring going to get damaged going through the door And the answer is no. As long as you stay away from where the door closes or latches, the wiring is built or designed to live inside the vehicle and come over top of that seal. So the coating on here is very strong. It's going to give you all of your proper lighting functions for your trailer. If you're wanting to keep it out.

You can use your dust cap as a holder. This wiring harness is going to work great to allow your trailer, if you're pulling a small trailer or a small camper, to receive live functions. So you're not only safe but you're illegal.Also, it's going to work great for cargo carriers. Some of those cargo carriers that have light functions on them. Maybe the license plate gets mounted on the outside and the car carrier is big enough that it's covering your lights on the vehicle, but the cargo carrier has lights.

This plug is going to allow you to plug into the cargo carrier so that that cargo carrier can receive the light functions. So the installation is very simple. It's going to plug directly into a factory plug back behind your driver's side rear panel. It is going to have a converter box and what the converter box does is it protects your factory wiring from any back feed from the trailer if there's a wiring short. So if there's a short, what happens is that short goes through the wire to the box and the box will stop it from going into the rest of your wiring in your vehicle.This wiring is designed to live inside the vehicle as I mentioned, but if you're wanting to ride it outside, when you have this panel out, there's a grommet right there. There's a couple of ways you can do it. You can take a grinding wheel and you can grind out one of the edges enough to get this to fit down in there. Or you can pull out the grommet, you can cut the wires, pass the wires through, and then re-splice the wires together. If you do that, I recommend using heat shrink butt connectors. You can find those here at etrailer.com. Now if you're wanting to run your wiring outside, this drop side hitch is a good option. You can see it's going to have a welded on bracket to add that wiring. With this, you will need the four pole bracket, which can be found here at etrailer.com.To begin our installation we need to get access into the rear cargo area. We need to remove our floor coverings. We're going to move this center sill panel. Take a 10 millimeter socket. We're going to have two tie down hooks. One on one side, one on the other. We're going to grab one side. We're going to pull up. Work our way across and set it aside. Over on our driver's side, we're going to take this panel and we're going to pull it out. Our plug should be right up in this area that we need to get access to. We're going to lift up. What I'm looking for is this plug right here. You can see it's taped to some existing wiring. We're going to cut that tape off and kind of pull it back to get better access to it.Take our wiring harness, we're going to take the white plug on the end and we're plug it into the plug back here. Like that. Now we need to mount our converter box. In your kit you're going to get some two sided sticky tape. We'll peel one side off put it on the box. You want to find a flat surface to mount it. I'm going to mount it right here. Make sure you push it on and it has a good hold. We'll run our four pole wire over. Now we can reinstall our panel. Reached all your tie downs. Reinstall you're cargo mat. And your wiring when not in use will store right there with the spare tire. Now we're going to test out our wiring using part number I26. Running lights, brake lights, left turn, right turn.
