CURT Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - C56328

  • Custom Fit
  • Trailer Hitch Wiring
  • 4 Flat
  • Powered Converter
  • CURT

Quickly and easily install a 4-way trailer connector on your vehicle with this custom harness. T-connector plugs directly into existing wiring. Powered converter reduces strain on wiring system and is made using SMT to ensure superior performance.


Features:

  • Provides a 4-way flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights
    • Compatible with 5-pole, 6-pole and 7-pole adapters (sold separately)
  • Connects quickly and easily
    • Locate connection points behind tail lights
    • Plug in T-connector
    • Run hot lead to car battery
  • Includes a tail light converter to ensure that your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailer
    • Powered module connects directly to battery to avoid overloading vehicle's electrical system
  • Constructed using surface-mount technology (SMT) for consistent, reliable performance
    • Maximizes trailer light yield and intensity while producing minimal heat
    • Ensures superior operation in rough road conditions
  • Comes with dust cap for 4-way flat connector


Specs:

  • Maximum amperage:
    • Stop/turn lights: 3 amps per circuit
    • Tail lights: 6 amps per circuit
  • Limited 1-year warranty


Installation

This custom-fit T-connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located behind the driver's-side and passenger's-side tail lights. You will have to remove the tail light assemblies to access this harness. Once you've plugged in the T-connector, run the hot lead up to your car battery. Connect the lead to the included fuse holder, and then connect the fuse holder to the positive terminal on your battery.


Once installation is complete, the 4-way connector will be stowed in an out-of-the-way location within your cargo area.


It is recommended that you use a small amount of grease on all electrical connections - the plugs on your automobile and the 4-pole connector itself - to help prevent corrosion.


Powered Tail Light Converter with Surface-Mount Technology

A tail light converter is built into this T-connector. This converter is a circuit-protected, battery-powered unit that bypasses the electrical routes that are used by a basic wiring harness. As a result, there is virtually no draw on your tail light circuits.


Because most trailers run on a two-wire system - wherein the brake and turn signals are carried on one wire - the separate brake and turn signals from your vehicle's three-wire system need to be combined so they are compatible with the wiring system of the trailer. This converter combines the brake and turn signal functions of your automobile so that they run on one wire to properly activate your trailer's tail lights. Note: This will not affect how the tail lights on your vehicle operate.


Curt builds each tail light converter using surface-mount technology (SMT). This method of construction involves soldering electronic components directly to the surface of a printed circuit board. SMT eliminates the need for leads, which are used in older through-hole technology. The result is a circuit board that is smaller yet provides more routing area and that offers superior performance, reliability and durability.


Curt SMT Circuit Boards

Circuit boards constructed using SMT have been shown to perform better under rough conditions with excessive vibration than those made using the through-hole method. And where would vibration be more likely to occur than in towing applications? Curt converters also produce less heat, leading to increased durability and longer life. In addition, lower levels of resistance ensure better performance, especially for parts that operate at higher frequencies.


Each Curt circuit board is made using high-quality components that are pieced together in the most technologically savvy fashion, leading to greater predictability and reliability in functioning.

This wiring kit makes the job much easier. Like others though, I do wish Curt would a few inches of wire to the passenger side of the harness. All connections fit like factory.




by:
2011 Toyota Matrix

Fairly easy to install. Just plugs in. Only complaint is the driver's side wiring harness is about 6" short in my opinion. The control box lays on top of bumper support because the harness wasn't long enough to allow control box to come down to be mounted like instructions said. The bumper support on the Kia is an open matrix structure, so there isn't anyplace to mount the box to on top. If the harness was 6" longer, it could have been solid mounted to the forward facing side of the bumper support.

This wiring was for our back-up tow vehicle, so we only recently used it. Worked great, and no issues!

I have reordered the right harness. I received the wrong information from the car dealer I bought the vehicle from. Tyler was very helpful with my reorder. I don’t have the hitch on yet so no pics at this time.




by:
2012 Kia Sorento

Wiring harness installs rather easily. It would be better if the wires were longer going from the driver side tail light connection to the module to allow more room for attaching it to the chassis.




by:
2013 Kia Sorento

It was so easy to find the correct trailer hitch / tow package I needed for my car! The order came very fast, and the staff were very quick to respond to my questions! I returned one item (my husband wanted to get a different one for his car), and thy were super helpful with the return as well as the new item!! Overall, it was a great and easy experience!!

Works well. Some problems with the fuse adaptor that pulled out of its connector. I have to hot-wire it, but I can deal with that.

Super easy installation, got the wiring done in 20 minutes and everything works perfectly. The only complaint I have is that I paid for two day shipping and got it in three days. Don’t know whose fault this is but when a person pays for something expedited the expect to get what they pay for, otherwise could t be happier.

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation for a 2012 Kia Sorento V6
    The only wiring harness for a 2012 Kia Sorento that does not require a direct connection to the battery is # 118541, but it only fits models that have the factory tow package. If the vehicle does not have the factory tow package, you will need to use Tow Ready Wiring Harness, # 118506 or CURT Wiring Harness, # C56328. With either of these harnesses, a few customers found the green wire (for the passenger side tail light) to be a little short. One customer did find an alternate route behind...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Options for a 2012 Kia Sorento EX
    There are 2 different wiring harnesses available for the 2012 Kia Sorento. If you have a V6 model with a factory towing prep package, you can use harness # 118269 that you referenced. It will only fit the V6, towing prep models. If you have a 4 cylinder model, you would need to use # C56328. I have included links to the installation instructions for both kits for you.

  • What is the Correct Trailer Wiring harness for a 2012 Kia Sorento 4 Cylinder
    The correct wiring harness for a 4 cylinder 2012 Kia Sorento is # C56328. The other kit you have referenced, # 118506, is not a verified fit for the 4 cylinder 2012 models. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view.

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation for a 2012 Kia Sorento
    The main difference between the Curt Modulite Wiring Harness, # C59496, and the Curt T-Connector Wiring Harness, # C56328, is that the T-Connector harness, # C56328, simply plugs into the factory tail light connectors at the back of the tail light assemblies. The Modulite Harness, # C59496, needs to be hardwired into your vehicles tail light circuits. I recommend using the T-Connector Harness # C56163 because you will not need to cut or splice into your vehicles tail light wires. Both...

  • Trailer Wiring 4-Way Kit for 2012 Kia Sorento without Tow Package
    Since your 2012 Kia Sorento didn't come with a factory hitch it's a safe assumption you don't have the factory tow package for picking out trailer wiring. If you have an EX or LX model you'd want the part # C56328 or if you have an SX model you'd want the part # C59236.

I've attached an installation video on another SUV, BMW X5 for you to check out.

  • Best Trailer Wring Options for 2011 Kia Sorento EX V6 AWD
    The trailer wiring harness you need will depend on whether or not your Sorento is equipped with the factory tow package. If you have the tow package, I'd recommend part # 118269. Without the tow package, use part # 118506. Generally speaking, the Tow Ready taillight converters have higher amperage ratings than their Curt counterparts, like the C56328. Curt make a fine wiring harness, but if I have the option, I'll choose the one with the higher rating. I've linked you to some installation...

    The Curt # C56328 and Tow Ready # 118566 4-pole wiring harnesses that fit your 2013 Ford Escape are very similar powered-type wiring kits. They both include all of the parts required for installation and both are mostly plug-in type products. Both only require you to run one single wire up to the engine compartment, the wire that brings the 12V power to the harness to operate the trailer's lights. Both will protect your Escape's wiring from the risk of a short-circuit that could be caused...

Instead, the video we have, which I have linked for you below, is of an installation of the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118506. Between the two harnesses, I highly recommend going with the Tekonsha for your 2012 Sorento. Not only have they proven to have the far more reliable harnesses, it also has the highest amp rating...

  • Troubleshooting Turn Signal and Brake Lamp Circuit in Trailer Taillight Wiring
    The first thing you'll want to check is the trailer connector on the vehicle. You can use a circuit tester like # PTW2993 on the pins for the right/left turn as a helper activates them. If you're getting signal for right/left turn and the brake lamps on the pins of the 4-pole trailer connector fed by the yellow and the green wires, then the problem exists in the trailer wiring. If you're not getting signal on those pins, be sure that the taillight converter harness has been plugged in...

In order to tow a trailer with your Sorento, you will need a hitch receiver such as the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13073, which will fit models with and without the towing package. You will also need a trailer wiring harness to attach to your factory harness such as the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package part...

  • Side Marker Lights and Tail Lights Stopped Working on 2004 Aliner Sport Trailer
    It sounds to me like you may actually have a ground problem. Often if a trailer has a weak or marginal ground connection it will be able to pass enough current for the lower current draw lights, such as the turn signals, but not enough for the side marker and taillights which are always on. To begin the troubleshooting, I would start with the easiest step first and check the connectors on both your 2012 Kia Sorento LX and the trailer. Make sure that they are clean and free of dirt and corrosion...

    The correct Curt trailer taillight wiring harness will depend on if your Sorento is equipped with the factory tow package.

The Curt # C56131 you'd looked at is a fit for the Kia Forte, and wouldn't work on your Sorento. I've linked to some installation videos that you might find helpful.
