How to Install a Trailer Wiring Harness on a 2010 Cadillac SRX


Speaker 1: Today on our 2010 Cadillac SRX, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the CURT T-connector vehicle wiring harness with 4-pole flat trailer connector, part number 56096. So here's what our wiring looks like when it's fully installed. We do have the factory plug right behind the bumper here, and it is going to stay on the outside at all times. Now, it provides us with a 4-pole flat trailer connector, which is going to give us all the required lights to get down the road safely and legally, such as our clearance lights, turn signals, and stop lights. Now that we see what it looks like in the end result, let's show you how we put it on.To begin our installation, we're going to come to the back of our vehicle and we're going to remove this center panel right here. Now, we're going to have two fasteners holding it in place, and we're going to be using a Phillips head screwdriver bit to take them out.

Once we have the screws out, we can slightly pull the panel downward and work it out. We're going to set this aside for now because we are going to be reinstalling this.Now, if we look up right where we had our panel, we're going to notice that we're going to have some wiring with a plug on it. So if we just pry up on that plastic gray tab it'll release the tension and we can pull the plug right off. Now, before we plug our harness in, we're going to take a little bit of dielectric grease, I'm going to put it on our connector, and that's just going to help keep some of the moisture buildup from causing corrosion or anything like that since it is on the outside of the vehicle.So we can just line up our connector, plug it in, and make sure it locks into place. Our wiring also is going to come with a dust cap.

I'm going to go ahead and slide it over our 4-pole here, and then we can just put the cover on to make sure we're not going to get any dirt or debris inside of our connector. Now, our kit does come with some zip ties. If you didn't notice, we don't have our hitch installed yet, and the reason why I didn't put a hitch on yet is because, to gain access to the wires, it's much easier if you do your wiring first. So for right now, I'm just going to tuck the wiring up out of the way, that way we can gain access once we get our hitch in place.Before we get ready to put everything back, I'm going to go ahead and plug in our 4-pole tester so we can make sure that our wiring is working properly. Now, if you don't have one of these testers, you can pick one up on our website using part number I26.

I'm going to go ahead and grab an extra set of hands so they can run my lights so I can verify that all of these are working properly.All right, can I have the headlights please Looks good. Left turn signal. Right turn signal. And the brakes. And the brakes and both turn signals please.

Looks like everything is working properly. We're ready to hit the road.That will finish up our look at the CURT T-connector vehicle wiring harness with 4-pole flat trailer connector, part number 56096, on our 2010 Cadillac SRX.
