Review of the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness


Today we're going to be taking a look at Curt's t-connector vehicle wiring harness with four pole flat trailer connector. We always recommend you use our fit guide to ensure you're purchasing the correct harness for your vehicle.And this is what our harness is going to look like when it's installed. It's going to hang out the back of your vehicle when in use and when not in use it will store inside of your rear compartment. This is a four pole connection, so it's going to provide you with your left turn signal, right turn signal, tail lamps and brake lamps keeping you DOT compliant in all states. Our module protects our vehicle so if there's any faults with our trailer, the module will shut down the circuit and prevent any damage from happening to the wiring on our vehicle. Additionally, our module is fuse protected.

So if there was an error with the module that caused a short that it didn't prevent, the fuse would just pop for the module and not for anything on the vehicle.As you can see here, we've got plenty of length, so you can ensure that your four pole connector will reach the connector on your trailer. And when not in use and you have it out the back, you can use the dust cap to store it by securing it to your hitch by putting it around a safety chain loop. Although when you're not using it, it is recommended that you store it inside the vehicle and there's plenty of locations here in the back for you to wrap it up and store it alongside your tire, keeping things nice and neat on the inside and nobody's even the wiser that you've got it installed. And this should work out regardless of which Subaru model you've got. There's going to be places to store it back there.The module box has a maximum output of three amps on your stop and turn signal circuits and six amps on your tail lamp circuits.

So this will be more than enough for a trailer full of LED lights or even some that had the older incandescent lights. And one of the best features is that it's just one plug. This is a custom fit plug and play option so you don't have to worry about any cutting or splicing, running a power wire front to back, quick and easy. And regardless of which Subaru you're installing this on that it fits, they're all going to be located back here in this back apartment, typically on the driver's side over here. They do vary a little bit on how front and back they're going to be depending on your year, make and model.

On our 19 Crosstrek here, once we lift up this back panel and ours is just going to be located at the driver's side underneath this panel here.And this is what the connector is going to look like. Regardless of which Subaru you have, it's going to have the same connector here. It'll have three pins on top with five on bottom and your release tab located there. On all of these you're simply going to plug your harness in to complete your connection there and then we'll take our ground wire. We're going to use a self tapping screw to just run it into the panel down here.

The self tapping screw comes with the kit and you're just going to run it into the side panel, and if you had one of the Subaru's where it was located further on the driver's side, that panel, you could just run it into that panel over there. We're going to be putting it on the back panel on our Crosstrek here. We're going to use a quarter inch socket for our self tapping screw and just thread it right in.Next, we'll install our fuse. Now you get your self tapping screw and your fuse out of your hardware kit here that comes with it. A lot of these things in here we don't need. The zip ties are nice for tying up our wiring and the sticky pads for keeping our module in place, but the butt connectors and ring terminals, this is just the standard hardware kit that comes with Curt's custom wiring. You may not necessarily use those all on your particular vehicle. For our Subarus here, we won't be needing a lot of that. Well now insert our 10 amp fuse into the harness.Now we just need to clean up our wiring here and secure our module with the double sided tape. Now for demonstration purposes, I'm not going to be putting the double sided tape on there. You just want to find a location that's out of the way where you can stick your module. On this vehicle, I would probably put it in somewhere right around here that way it's not going to interfere with any of your paneling, it won't interfere with your spare tire and you'll be able to easily access your connector. Now with our electrical box and wiring secure, you'll easily be able to access your harness whenever you need it by simply lifting up your compartment, pulling it out of the tray, draping it over the back, and then you can shut your lift gate right on top of it. You just want to make sure you avoid the striker here in the centers, so I like to put it off to the driver's side a little bit. It'll pinch it between our weatherstripping, which will keep it in place and it won't cause any damage.And that completes our look at Curt's t-connector vehicle wiring harness with four pole flat trailer connector.
