2005 Toyota Questions and Answers


  • Wiring Diagram for the Curt 4 Pole to 7 Pole Adapter # C57674 And Wiring for Trailer Brakes
  • The wiring for the Adapter 4 Pole to 7 Pole and 4 Pole, item # C57674, is wired as follows. The white wire is grounded to the vehicle frame as you have indicated. The Yellow wire is the center pole of the 7-Way connector and is normally used for connection to the reverse light circuit. In your case you will not need the yellow wire. The blue wire is for connection of the electric brake feed wire from a brake controller. You will need a brake controller in your Sienna to activate the...

  • How to Pick Out a Trailer Jack for a Boat Trailer
  • The best way to pick out a jack is to pick out one that has enough capacity to handle the tongue weight of your trailer. Typically, tongue weight is 10-15 percent of the total weight of the trailer. So lets say your boat and trailer weight a total of 10,000 lbs. Most likely you would have a tongue weight of 1,000-1,500 lbs. Without knowing your tongue weight but knowing the weight of your boat I think a 2,000 lb jack like the Bulldog Round Jack part # BD151443. Review video attached....

  • Installing a Brake Controller on 2005 Toyota Tundra
  • The factory installed brake controller connector should be a white plug located on the left side under the drivers side dash on your 2005 Toyota Tundra Dual Cab. I have included a photo and a video that shows the location of the plug on another Toyota Tundra at the 8 second mark. This plug may not be there if your vehicle did not come with the factory tow package. The Multi-Plug, # 20137, is designed as a replacement if your vehicle came with a factory tow package that included the...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Running Lights That Flicker and then Turn Off
  • Sounds like it could be a ground problem, the additional load of the running lights being on your vehicle is too much for the weak grounds and the circuit is shutting off. Or the problem is your trailer taillight circuit is drawing more amperage than the wiring harness is capable of handling. You might try disconnecting a few of the running light circuit clearance lights to see if this allows the lights to illuminate. If so, you will need to convert your trailer to LEDs. I attached a link...

  • Can I Replace 155/80R13 Tires with 175/80 R13 Tires on a Boat Trailer
  • I did some calculations on the tire sizes and found that the difference between the 175/80R13 and the 155/80R13 is pretty small. The 175/80 is 24 inches inches tall whereas the 155/80 is 22.7 inches tall for a difference of 1.3 inches total, but that difference needs to be split since the overall diameter is split since the wheel rotates on the axle. So basically the wheel will take up an additional .65 inches of your fender well. The width difference is pretty small at .78 inches....

  • Trailer Brakes Only Work When Manual Switch on Brake Controller is Activated
  • The controller is only putting out voltage when the manual switch is applied on the brake controller, but not when the vehicle brakes are applied, is that correct? The most likely problem is that the controller is not getting the input that the vehicle brakes are being applied. When the trailer is hitched up with the transmission in park, use a circuit tester like part # 3808 on the red wire exiting the rear of the controller. You should show voltage on the wire when the trucks brake...

  • Benefits of Changing to Larger Diameter Radial Trailer Tires on Travel Trailer
  • Changing to a larger diameter radial tire from a smaller bias ply type can offer several advantages. In general radial trailer tires run cooler than bias ply tires, especially when the tire is under a load. A tire that runs cooler will last longer. A bias ply tire has a stiffer sidewall than a radial, a feature that might be useful for off-road applications, but for highway operation a radial tire will flex more, and provide better ground contact, traction, stability, and tread wear. You...

  • What Trailer Hitch Is Recommended For Towing A Boat With A 2005 Toyota Sienna
  • I will be glad to help you with your hitch selection. The Draw-Tite Class III 2 Inch Hitch # 75237 would be an excellent choice for the towing situations you have described. With the 2 inch receiver you will have a wider selection of accessories available that you may need in the future such as bike racks and cargo carriers. It has a towing weight capacity of 3,500 lbs. and a tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs. At this time, there is not a Class II receiver with the 1-1/4 inch hitch...

  • Installing a Brake Controller on a 2005 Toyota Tacoma Without Brake or 12 Volt Power Wire
  • I am surprised to hear your 2005 Toyota Tacoma came with the factory brake controller harness, but the 7-way trailer connector was not wired for brakes or 12 volt power. If you were not the original owner, it may be possible that the previous owner had the 7-way connector installed, but only had the light functions wired. There is really no telling where Toyota stopped the power wire and brake wire from the brake controller harness under the dash. Unfortunately there is not a specific...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2005 Toyota Highlander with Factory Installed Tow Package
  • Since your 2005 Toyota Highlander came with a factory tow package, you would need Tow Package Wiring Harness with 4 Pole Trailer Connector, # 118248. I have included a link to the installation instructions along with a link to a video showing a typical installation for you to view.

  • Recommendation for Brake Controller on a 2005 Toyota Tacoma With Tow Package
  • I would recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller, part # 90885 and wiring harness adapter part # 3040-P for your 2005 Toyota Tacoma with tow package. This is a proportional brake controller that will apply power to the trailer brakes in proportion to the braking action of your vehicle. The adapter will plug into the back of the brake controller and the other end will plug into the factory brake controller port on your vehicle. There will be an additional white ground wire...

  • Replacement Wingnut and U-bolt for the Thule X-Cargo Cargo Box
  • I spoke with my contact at Thule and the correct u-bolts and wing nuts for the Thule X-Cargo cargo box are wing nut, # TH04877, and u-bolt, # TH02943. We list these as replacement u-bolts for the Thule Sidekick, but that is only because we do not carry the X-Cargo box.

  • What Does Trailer Tire Ply Rating Mean
  • When a tire is given a 'ply rating', it doesn't necessarily indicate the number of layers of material the tire is constructed of. As the need for greater fuel economy and the cost of materials rises, the tire manufacturers have gone to using lighter but stronger materials like Kevlar that provide the same strength that would have took several layers of materials years ago. Fewer layers also means less heat build-up, which is essential for longer tire life. All that really matters is...

  • Brake Controller and Wiring for a 2005 Toyota Tundra
  • Your install procedure will depend on how your Tundra is equipped. If you have the factory tow package with the 7-way trailer connector at the rear bumper, you can simply use a controller like the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part # 90885 and the brake controller wiring adapter, part # 3040-P. The adapter plug in to the rear of the controller, and the other end would plug into the connector under the dash. The connector is usually located near the emergency brake pedal. If you do not have...

  • What Is Spacing For Mounting Holes On Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler CT-3003-Z
  • I went to the warehouse and took some measurements of the # CT-3003-Z Trailer Coupler for you. I have attached a photo of the coupler with the dimensions shown. The distance from the inside top of the coupler to the center of the mounting holes is 1-inch. The mounting holes are spaced 3-inches apart.

  • Tire Speed Rating for the Kenda 205/65-10 Bias Trailer Tire with 10
  • Recently Kenda came out and changed the speed ratings on several of their tires. Whatever speed rating is listed on the tire is the correct rating. If no particular listing then rated for 65 mph. This is not a rating we came up with and is what Kenda tested and gave us.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2005 Toyota Matrix
  • Curt trailer hitch # C12221 would be a good option as long as your 2005 Toyota Matrix is not an XR or XRS model. If it is an XR or XRS model then # C12013 would be the best option for a Curt hitch. These are both Class II hitches which means you have to use the ball mount recommended by the hitch manufacture so as not to void the hitch warranty. This will limit the amount of rise you can get to be able to tow the trailer level. Based on the picture you have sent you will need a good...

  • Tire Covers for a Rockwood Pop-Up Camper with 145R12 Tires
  • The 145R12 tires on your Rockwood pop-up have an overall diameter of approximately 21-1/4-inches and for this size you can use Classic Accessories RV Wheel Covers # 052963762204 in white or # CA80098 in grey. Each is a set of two tire covers.

  • Using the Thule SnowPack Extender on a 2005 Toyota Highlander
  • I reached out to Thule and confirmed that the SnowPack Extender, part # TH7325 is a confirmed fit for your 2005 Toyota Highlander's factory roof rack. You'll want to install the carrier all the way to one side or the other for the best performance.

  • Rhino-Rack System for ARE Camper Shell on 2005 Toyota Tacoma (OUT TO RR CS, BY 8/14))
  • I reached out to Rhino-Rack to confirm the fit of these parts. Both of these kits, Vortex Aero Bars, part # Y02-490-NT and the Heavy Duty bars, part # Y01-130-NT are equal in strength and will fit the ARE kit. You will want to verify that your tracks are actually Yakima tracks. In order to mount to the Yakima track, you'll need the Yakima Adapter Kit, part # RRT-FK3. If the tracks are Thule, you'll want to go with Thule Adapter Kit, part # RRT-FK1. These adapter kits will...

  • Ladder Availability to Replace Ladder on 2013 Dutchman Voltage Toyhauler
  • I was able to find a picture of your Toy Hauler and see the ladder that is on it from the factory. We have ladders that would work but they would not be an exact replacement. The part # LA-401 looks to be the closest one we carry to what is on your trailer but it would not perfectly match with what you have. I attached a review video for you to check out for this ladder as well.

  • Availability of Tailgate Assist Device for 2005 Toyota Tundra
  • Although the DeeZee Truck Tailgate Lift you referenced, part # DZ43300 is not a fit for your Tundra, there is a tailgate assist product from Hopkins available, the EasyLift part # 74211. The EasyLift is a torsion spring that acts to remove about 80 percent of the tailgate weight, making it much easier to lift. It works the opposite from the way the DeeZee product does, by helping raise the gate rather than helping to lower it, but it works exceptionally well. To see a product demonstration...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Lights not Working with a 4-Way to 6-Way Adapter on a 2005 Toyota Tacoma
  • Before attempting to install a new 6-way connector, I would recommend using a circuit tester, # ALL640595, to test the connectors on your 2005 Toyota Tacoma and on the trailer that you are using to see if something is not wired correctly. When you have the adapter connected to your 4-flat connector, test each pin for proper function. I would also recommend testing each pin on your 4-flat connector as well, just so we can determine if the problem is on your 4-flat connector, the adapter,...

  • Mounting Hardware Recommendation for a Thule Summit 631 to Mount to Thule Rapid Aero Load Bars
  • The hardware that is used by the Thule Summit cargo box 631 was actually an earlier version of the QM3 Hardware, # TH04997, that you have referenced. I did speak with my contact at Thule and she stated that you can retro-fit the EasySnap Mounting Kit, # TH05820, to he box but it will be a tight fit. Thule Rapid Aero bars would be compatible with the box and the new hardware kit.

  • How to Choose Correct Fixed or Adjustable Ball Mount
  • Finding the right ball mount, one with the correct rise or drop, will allow your hitched trailer to be level which is important for best handling. We offer both fixed and adjustable ball mounts for 2-inch hitches that are shown on the linked page. If you tow only one trailer and only with one vehicle then you may not need the benefit of flexibility from an adjustable ball mount like the MaxxTow # MT70380. If you have more than one trailer or tow vehicle then an adjustable ball mount...

  • How to Install A 7-Way Connector On A 2010 Ford F-150 With A 4-Way Flat Connector
  • To convert the 4-Way flat trailer connector on the back of your 2010 Ford F-150, I would recommend using a 4 to 7-Way adapter, like our part # 37185. You will plug the factory 4-Way into the back of the adapter and hardwire the remaining 4 wires. The white wire gets grounded to the vehicle frame. The blue wire gets connected to the electric brake controller output (blue wire on a brake controller). The black wire connects to the positive battery terminal with 10 gauge wire like # 10-1-1,...

  • Brake Controller Plug Location on a 2005 Toyota Tundra with Factory Tow Package
  • On your 2005 Toyota Tundra the factory plug to plug in a brake controller is located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal. However, it is possible that it is up above the emergency brake pedal or behind the kick panel to the left of the pedal. I have linked a video that should help. You have many brake controller options but the P2 # 90885 is the most popular controller because it is easy to set up and use and...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2005 Toyota Prius
  • I would recommend the Thule Raceway Trunk Mount Bike Carrier, # TH9001PRO, for your 2005 Prius. This is the easiest to mount and remove rack that I have personally used, and it folds compact for storage, see video link. I would normally recommend a trailer hitch and hitch mounted bike rack, but for the Prius a hitch would add weight to the vehicle when not carrying bikes and the vehicle owners manual normally precludes towing as an option with these vehicles. If you will be carrying...

  • What Vehicles Fit with Curt Trailer Hitch # 13530

  • How to Wire a Brake Controller on a Toyota Sienna 2005 XLE
  • You will need a Wiring Harness, item # 118304, to start with. Once you have this wiring harness installed and working properly you will need to do some additional wiring to complete a 7-Way connection at the rear of the vehicle. You will need the Brake Controller 7 & 4 Way Installation Kit, item # ETBC7. This kit comes with all of the wiring, brackets, circuit breakers and connectors needed to complete the installation of a brake controller and a 7-Way connector. To complete the wiring...
