How to Install the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness on a 2017 Kia Sedona


Today on our 2017 Kia Sedona, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for factory tow package, with a 4-Pole flat trailer connector. That's going to be part number 118269.So here's what our wiring looks like once we have it fully installed. It is designed to stay on the outside of the vehicle. That way, wherever we get hooked up to our trailer it would be right there, ready for us. It's going provide us with a 4-pole flat trailer connector. That way, we have all the required lights to safely get down the road, like our taillights, turn signals, and our brake lights.One of the nicest things about our wiring is that we're not going to have to cut or splice into the factory wiring.

It's going to be a simple plug and play installation. First, we're going to have two plugs that are going to plug up underneath, on the driver's side. Our wiring is going to be fuse-protected, as well as have a powered converter box, so that the lights on our trailer match the lights on our Sedona. The fuse protection is going to make sure that we don't overload her circuits, so if there we're already problems on the trailer end, our wiring harness is going to prevent any kind of back feeding and prevent any kind of damage happening to our Sedona.So now that we've seen what our running lights looks like and we've gone over some of the features, let's show you how easy it is to get it installed. To begin our installation, we're going to want to come to the back end of our Sedona.

On the driver's side, right behind the tire is where we're going to be making our connections. Your Sedona may have a plastic panel that's right here, but we had to remove ours to install our hitch. If your panel is still there, you're going to want to pull out the push pins that are holding it in place, so we can get access to these two plugs back here. We're going to pull the covers off, the small tab on the black one. We'll press in and we can slide it off.

Then on the one up top, that tab is going to be on the outside. So we'll reach around, press in and slide the tab off.Now if we grab our wiring harness, we'll have two connectors that are going to plug into those. So we'll plug the small one into the small connector. We'll make sure it locks into place, and then we'll plug the other one in as well. Now if you're having trouble reaching, you can take a small screwdriver and pop this out of the clip here, so you have a little bit more slack in the line.

We're just going to plug our connector in, and if you have enough room you can clip it back in place.With our connections made, you going to want to double-check that your fuse is in the fuse holder. We'll put the cover back on. Now we can mount our converter box and tie up some of these loose wires. Now right in this area would be a good spot to mount it. We can just take our converter box, and we can zip tie it to this line that's up here and tie up the excess wires up high. Now you don't want to zip tie it. You can use the double-sided foam tape that's provided in the kit, and we can stick it to a nice flat surface.So I just tied up the excess wires to the existing wiring here. I zip tied my converter box to the top, as well as using the double-sided foam tape to stick it to the side of the body.Now we're just going to run our 4-pole towards the center of our hitch. I ran my 4-pole wire behind the bumper here. I've pulled these push pins out, just tucked my wire up, came over to the center and had it come out underneath the cover. Whenever we're not towing, we can actually use our dust cover to attach it to our safety chain loop, so we don't have to worry about it dragging the ground.I went ahead and hooked up my 4-pole tester. That way we can make sure that our circuits are working properly. If you need one of these you can pick one up here, at etrailer.com, using part number I26. You can see that our taillight functions are working, as well as the left turn signal, the right turn signal and the brakes. All we have left to do now is hook up to our trailer and hit the road.That'll finish up your look at the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for factory tow package, part number 118269, on our 2017 Kia Sedona.
