Quickly and easily install a 4-way trailer connector on your vehicle with this custom wiring harness. T-One connector plugs directly into existing wiring. Powered ModuLite reduces strain on wiring system.


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 in trunk
    • Plug in T-connector
    • Run hot lead to car battery

  • Constructed of 16-gauge bonded wire
  • Comes with dust cap for 4-way flat connector


Specs:

  • Maximum amperage:
    • Stop/turn lights: 2.1 amps per circuit
    • Tail lights: 5.6 amps per circuit
  • 1-Year limited warranty


Installation

This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located inside your trunk, behind the tail lights on both the driver's side and passenger's side. You will need to remove some interior trim or carpeting to access the 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 and insert the provided fuse.


Once installation is complete, the 4-way flat connector will be stowed within your trunk.


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.


ModuLite Power Module

A ModuLite power module is built into this T-One connector. With a ModuLite, your trailer's lights will be powered without overloading your vehicle's electrical system. Because the module draws power directly from your car's battery and bypasses the electrical routes that are used by a basic wiring harness, there is virtually no draw on your tail light circuits.

2018 Ford Mustang

Two local trailer dealers advised me that there was no wiring kit for my 2018 Mustang. I bought the kit from etrailer and it works fine. I was nervous about doing it myself because the dealer would not install it. I watched the videos and it was a very easy installation. Everything worked like in the video. I did make one change, I ran the power wire under the back seat to the passenger compartment. I then attached it to a 12 volt plug and hid the wires and plug under the passenger seat. When I use the trailer I plug it into the receptacle in the console. I was easier than running it under the car into the engine compartment.

2011 Ford Mustang

Fast shipping and everything was there that was needed, just a couple of plugs run a hot wire, worked perfect Thanks for a great product. Cherry




by:

Only took a couple hrs to install, but my car was an exception. I have a 12 Boss 302 and it has corsa sports that had to be tack welded to keep from turning in the clamps at high rpm. So I managed to remove the hangers to drop the mufflers a bit and got it done. Not an easy chore but it's possible. Looks great on the car since it tucks up close to the rear bumper. Fish wires weren't to hard at all and went well getting them through.




by:

the wiring harness is nice quality , easy to put on. The video on etrailer.com was very helpful for both the trailer hitch and wiring harness.




by:
2014 Ford Mustang

The Sportframe hitch was quick to bolt up with the excellent fish wires. It actually took longer to install the wiring harness!




by:
2017 Ford Mustang

Hitch came in very fast. Ordered two days before X-mas and it arrived on the 28th. Hitch and wiring are both as advertised. Giving four stars instead of five because it tore through the box and scraped some pain off a few places. Will update when installed




by:
2016 Ford Mustang

I've been using this to haul my Kendon motorcycle trailer behind my 2016 Mustang GT convertible for about a year now and it's been working great. Haven't had any issues yet. Kit had enough wire and parts are holding up so far.




by:
2010 Ford Mustang

The wiring harness was simple to install running the wire to the battery was the worst part of all. Excellent instructions




by:
2013 Ford Mustang

I got the trailer hitch earlier than expected, all the parts were there , the photos to aid in the installation were very helpful and the price was very reasonable. Also the hitch when not in use is very low profile and not easily seen. Thanks E-Trailers!




by:

Thank you for wonderful service and speedy delivery

Never got to install vehicle before I sold it. So I still have unable to use. It will not fit new car. But price and service were great

Fits 2015 Mustang GT convertible perfectly.
Very
happy with the hitch and shipping.
I’ll buy from you again when needed.

Excellent Product! Watch the video and you should be more than fine. The kit comes with everything you need. It took me a little over 2 hours to complete the install but I guess that's what happens when you don't do these things for a living. Used it on my maiden voyage a 400 mile trip with no issues.

I had no problem installing the hitch but have not used it for any hauling yet.

  • Ford Mustang 2010 Convertible Tow Ready T-One Connector
    The Tow Ready T-1 Connector # 118487 requires a connection to the battery in order to function properly. The T-1 receives the signals from its attachment behind the tail lights, but the voltage to power the trailer lighting is sourced directly from the battery. This is done to protect the circuitry in the vehicle wiring system. Drawing the power from a different 12-volt source can damage the electrical system in the event of a short circuit in the trailer wiring. I have ran the power wire...

  • Will Installation of Trailer Wiring Harness Affect Sequential Turn Signals on a 2016 Ford Mustang
    The sequential turn signal feature on your 2016 Ford Mustang is controlled further up the line than where a trailer wiring harness such as # 118487 would install. The connection for the wiring harness is basically a pass-through device so the sequential signals coming through won't change how the vehicle turn signals function.

  • Wiring 4-Way Trailer Connector with 5 Wires
    Do you have a 4-pin connector that has 5 wires or is it a 5-pin connector? There is a big difference since you normally see a 5-pin connector on a boat trailer with the 5th pin used for an electric reverse lockout solenoid on a brake actuating coupler. If it is a 4-pin connector with 5 wires then it is called a wishbone harness and would have 2 wires attached to the running light pin so you have one wire for each side of the trailer. Typically, on a 4-Way, the white wire is ground, brown...

  • Will Tekonsha T-One Connector 118487 On 2018 Ford Mustang GT Change How Tail Lights Work?
    With the Tekonsha T-One Connector # 118487 installed on your 2018 Ford Mustang GT the inside lights on each side of your vehicle will not be at full brightness, and will only be at the dimmer brightness when your head lights are on. If you take a look at the 12:55 minute mark of the included video where Shane tests this harness, you will see exactly how the lights will look with each function.

  • Taillight Signal Converter Recommendation for Adapting a US Vehicle to a Euro Trailer Wiring
    The note you mentioned for the # 118158 is for when it is used for flat towing. Since your plan is to use this adapter to make an adapter for towing a trailer you can disregard that. The # 118158 would be the correct adapter to use to convert your trailer taillight signals from combined to separate and would work with the # 118487. I attached a diagram that should be helpful for you as well.

  • Towing a Trailer with 2014 Mustang GT vs 1999 Honda Civic Coupe
    I did some checking in the the owners manuals for both the 2014 Ford Mustang GT and the 1999 Honda Civic Coupe for you. The owner's manual for the 1999 Civic Coupe instructs that the vehicle is not designed for and should not be used to tow a trailer. I was able to find the 3.7L and 5.0L Mustang have a maximum trailer weight capacity of 1,000 pounds. Per the owner's manual, the Shelby GT should not be used to tow a trailer. The biggest concern in towing with the Mustang will be ground...

  • Using Hitch Adapter on Class I Hitch for Motorcycle Carrier on 2012 Ford Mustang
    You are correct that the only available trailer hitches for your 2012 Ford Mustang are Class I hitches that provide a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. If you do not yet have a trailer hitch, I recommend the Draw-Tite Class I Sport Frame Receiver Hitch # 24863. This is custom fit for your vehicle and will use existing holes in the Mustang's frame for a no-drill installation. I have attached the written installation instructions that you can also take a look at. You can use an adapter like...

I have included a link to a help article with tips on routing the power wire for you. You could follow one of those methods or use it as a guide to develop your own.

  • Recommend Trailer Hitch for 2010 Ford Mustang V6 with Boss Rear Bumper
    For your 2010 Mustang V6, you will need the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 24840. The hitch will bolt up to the frame of your Mustang, but since you have a Boss rear bumper, additional trimming of the bumper fascia may be required. The Draw-Tite Hitch # 24840 is a Class I 1-1/4 inch hitch. You will want to make sure not to exceed the towing and tongue weight capacity of the hitch or vehicle as stated in the vehicle owners manual.

    The only difference between the Draw-Tite Sportframe Class I Trailer Hitch, # 24863, and the Hidden Hitch Class I Trailer Hitch, # 60280 (no longer available), is that the Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch includes a ball mount. Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch are sister companies that use the same design, specifications and materials for their products. The only advantage to purchasing one over the other is that you will get a ball mount with the Hidden Hitch trailer hitch. In this case you will...

  • Will Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch # 24863 Fit A 2011 Ford Mustang Convertible
    I spoke with my contact at Draw-Tite and they said that the Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 24863, will fit a 2011 Ford Mustang convertible. This hitch has a gross towing weight capacity of 2,000 lbs. and a tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs.

These will both give you the same capacity, but one I recommend more than the other. I recommend getting the Curt as it has a hidden cross tube. I don't like seeing the crosstube of hitch receivers on cars and especially on sports cars like yours. I highly recommend getting the Curt for that reason.
