Curt Vehicle Wiring Harness Installation - 2018 Chevrolet Equinox

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Chevrolet Equinox we'll be having a look at and showing you how to install the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with a 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector, part number C56375.Here's what our wiring harness looks like installed. We have an adequate length of wire to reach down by our receiver on our hitch. Now this wiring harness gives us the necessary functions that are required by law in order for us to safely and legally tow a trailer. Our white wire gives us our ground connection that is necessary between our Equinox and our trailer, the brown wire provides our taillight and running light circuit, and on this wire we have a total power output of seven and a half amps, which is more than adequate to tow a trailer with several incandescent light bulbs or basically as many LED lights as we want because LED lights do draw significantly less power. Our yellow wire is our left turn signal and left brake light, our green wire is our right turn signal and right brake light, just like the taillight and the running light wire we have seven and a half amps of power output on each of those wires.What's great about this wiring harness as opposed to other options on the market is that it utilizes our vehicle's factory tow package connector. There is no cutting, no splicing, you don't have to power a module by running a wire directly to your battery.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2017 Chevrolet Equinox

Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Chevrolet Equinox we're gonna take a look at, and show you how to install, the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with the 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector. Part number is 56094.When we begin our installation, we wanna remove the taillight housing from each side of the vehicle. We've got two caps that cover the screws, here and here. You just take a flat blade on the bottom side and you'll be able to pop those off. Now, with that off you're gonna have 10 mm screws behind there, you could also use a Phillips bit. When using a socket they don't wanna come out, you kind have to reach in there and grab them, or you can take a piece of paper towel and put over it, and that should make it stick in there so you can pull it out.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2015 Chevrolet Equinox

Today on our 2015 Chevrolet Equinox we'll be having a look at and installing the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle wiring harness for factory tow package vehicles with a four pole flat trailer connector, part number 118264. Here's what our wiring looks like installed. As you can see we have an adequate length wire to reach down even several inches blow our receiver, making it easy for us to hook up to our trailer, no matter where our wiring harness is on our trailer. We have this nice dust cover that's built in to our connector. This will allow us to protect it from the elements when it's not in use, and to help keep dirt and debris out of the connection causing a poor connection or corrosion when it's not in use. This wiring harness is nice because it hooks into our factory tow package on our vehicle.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2014 Chevrolet Equinox

Today on our 2014 Chevrolet Equinox we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Tekonsha T-1 Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4 Pole Flat, part number 118494. Here's what our wiring looks like installed. Now, I do want to mention we do have it mounted with a short bracket as well as a 4 pole mounting bracket, but our wiring itself is going to give us a 4 pole flat, and it's going to stay on the outside of the vehicle until we're ready to tow. It's going to provide us all of the required lights when towing a trailer, such as your clearance lights, turn signals, and stoplights. Now that we see the end result, let's show you how we got it on there. Now, in our kit they are going to provide us with a few butt connectors, but I'm going to be replacing them with some heat shrink butt connectors. Anytime you see me use one of these, you can pick some up on our website using part number DW05745-5, and that will be for a pack of five of them.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2013 Chevrolet Equinox

Today in our 2013 Chevrolet Equinox we'll be having a look at and installing the Tekonsha T1 Vehicle wiring harness with a four pull flat trailer connector, part number 118494. Here's what our wiring looks like installed. As you can see, we can easily secure it up to our hitch safety chain loop here using the built on dust cover. This dust cover will help protect our wiring when it's not in use so we don't have to worry about any dirt, debris or moisture getting inside causing contamination or a short later down the road. Now this wiring harness has an adequate length wire on it. We actually have it zip tied up underneath our fascia right now. This wiring harness will give us our necessary functions as required by law in order to safely tow a trailer; for all of our tail lights, our running lights, our turn signals, and our brake lights. Now one nice thing about this wiring harness compared to others on the market is that it has a powered module, which will help isolate our vehicle's lighting system circuitry from our trailer so in case our trailer has short we don't have to worry about any damage occurring to our vehicle's expensive electrical components.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2016 Chevrolet Equinox

Today on this 2016 Chevrolet Equinox, we're going to review and install the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for the Factory Tow Package from Tekonsha, part number 118264. We just pull out what we need, put the floor panel back into place, and pull out our wire. Our door seal's thick enough when we shut it, it's not going to hurt the wire and we just run out whatever length we need out to your trailer at this point. Now, when you shut the gate, make sure that this is no where near the latch because you'll cut the wires and you'll be starting over. Just pull out a little bit right here. We can go ahead and shut our hatch and pull out what we need to go out to our trailer. As you can see, we have plenty to reach down to our hitch here and our trailer should have plenty of lead with it to match up to this. When we're finished towing for the day, we can go ahead and hide it back inside and be one less item hanging out below your vehicle. This is your 4-pole flat wire harness right here, with it's own built-in cover.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2016 Chevrolet Equinox

Today on this 2016 Chevrolet Equinox, we're going to review and install a Curt T-Conductor Vehicle Wiring Harness for the factory tow package, part number C56210. All right, now, when you're ready to use it, just open up the floor panel and pull out the wire harness. Put the panel back into place. It's not going to hurt anything. Then, run your wire harness to the outside. Just make sure you stay away from the latch, so when you close the hatch on it, it won't damage the wires. Then, after it's shut, you can pull out what you need to go to down to your trailer hitch and meet up with your trailer. You can see we have plenty of length to go down to your trailer hitch and meet up with your trailer. You got the wire harness itself.



Best 2017 Chevrolet Equinox Trailer Wiring Options

Today on our 2017 Chevrolet Equinox we're going to be taking a look at the best wiring options available. The two wiring options we're going to be taking a look at are the CURT T-Connedctor, and that's part number 56094. The second one is going to be the Tekonsha T-One Connector. That's part number 118494. Both are going to provide you with a four-pole flat connector for your trailer wiring at the rear of the vehicle. The main differences between the wiring harnesses are the Tekonsha here uses a power module. What this does is it connects directly to your battery, copies the signal to your trailer wiring, and prevents overloading your car's electrical system.
