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

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 behind tail lights
    • Plug in T-connector
    • Run hot lead to car battery
  • Includes ModuLite 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 of 16-gauge bonded wire
  • Comes with dust cap for 4-way flat connector

    • Stop/turn lights: 5 amps per circuit
    • Tail lights: 7.5 amps per circuit
  • 1-Year limited warranty


Installation

This custom-fit T-One 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.


T-One Connection Location Points Behind Tail Lights

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 beneath your vehicle, near the trailer hitch. A mounting bracket (sold separately) is recommended to keep the connector secure.


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 Powered Tail Light Converter

A ModuLite power module is built into this T-One connector. 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 your trailer. This power module functions as a tail light converter to combine 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.


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.

T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector - 118813

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (33 Customer Reviews)

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.

by:

Not terribly difficult to install for me(not a mechanic). One thing that held me up was that I ran short by about 6 inches of wire to get to the connector on the passenger side lights(getting it high enough to reinstall the light fixture). Took a while to rerun the wires several times and then ended up moving the ground screw lower by about 5 inches. I ran the power black line along braking components and then fished it under the black cover that runs most of the way to the front and right up to the battery, I’ve never tied something to a car battery and it all worked out well. I used a 4 foot bamboo stake to run it both under the blastocyst shield in the bottom of the car and up to the battery. 6 inches of extra wire to get to the passenger side and I would have had this done in about 30 minutes.

Tips. A flat head screw driver will easily remove the plastic clips for extra room

I also used a flat head screwdriver wrapped in a paper towel to help the light fixtures out- there are 4 screws and 4 rubber push in pins on the outside- I put it between the light and car and gently popped it out.

Worked out great and this particular wiring harness kept the car’s warranty intact.

2012 Kia Soul

Delivery was on time thank you it is for my 2021kia soul. Made for 2020 to present. Kia must of changed wire harness 2021 colors. Didn't match instructions.i figured it out and 12 volt to the battery to took some doing average person would have a hard time




by:

Installed this product and have traveled pulling a pop up camper. I haven't had any issues with this product. Has never let me down.




by:

Kit was not manufactured for proper install. I had to cut harness wiring to the right rear light, and make it 14 inches longer. The extra wire that feed the power is also a joke. The whole design could of been better. The surge box should have been installed under the bumper. I tucked it in and tied it. Putting it a long with the ground behind the light is just plain stupid. (Limited Space) I believe Curt kit is superior but also could use a better design for install. This was a nightmare to deal with. And having to modify for install was poor manufacturing to save a dime.. I just hope when I test the system today; That it all functions as it should. I know I voided the warranty fixing their cheap build.


Comments
When you follow step 7 in the installation instructions, it mentions to either route the black power wire through a grommet along the exterior frame or follow the existing wiring along the thresholds into the engine compartment up to the battery, avoiding areas that may pinch or break the wire. By following the picture labeled C in the instructions, you should not have to add additional wire to make this kit work.

Installed on my 2021 Kia Soul in half an hour, hardest part was snaking the ground wire from the rear to the battery.... car lamps came out easily, connectors snaked very easily & all fit great.




by:

Everytime I order from etrailer, my orders come thru without no "hitches"... ;)

Perfect everytime!




by:
2020 Kia Soul

As always all the products I get from a trailer work right from the start with no problems and directions are easy for installation




by:
2020 Kia Soul

All in all pleased. All of the wiring and module is located outside the vehicle compartment underneath the bumper facia. The wiring lengths are just right, long enough but no extra slack. With two experienced people, a lift, and all the right tools at hand; it took three hours to install the hitch and the wiring harness. The instructions that were supplied with the harness were minimal, almost useless.




by:

Fairly easy to install, my only complaint would be that the wires are too short after mounting box.




by:
2021 Kia Soul

It's a well made product. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the instructions or really a lack of instructions. But as far as the product goes I give it a 5 star.




by:

Once I read the instructions, it was easy to hook up, easiest wiring I have ever done.




by:
2020 Kia Soul

The wire on the drivers side was about 2ft to short and had to add, ont the other side it was the right . You may want to look into this, other then the short wire it all went together pretty smooth.

It was really easy to install! I only really had to run one wire from the battery to the rear of the car. The rest of the wiring was simple plug and play. A ground point was easy to find in the Kia Soul in the hatch back section directly below the hatch lock mechanism behind the interior panel. So no need to drill a hole.




by:
2020 Kia Soul

The product trailer hitch was a good fit for my Kia Soul. Running a wire to the front of the car proved difficult without having a lift, but the turn signal and brake lights are working.




by:
2020 Kia Soul

Left side wiring needs to be about 6" longer to mount control box to body. However, it is installed and works properly. This is the 6th unit Ive installed since 2013.




by:
2020 Kia Soul

I haven't had time to have it installed on my 2020 Kia soul. I will let you know more once this process has been completed. Looked it over and looks like just what I need. Will keep your site on my computer and use it for next purchase for my car;s electrical items.




by:

Sadly the part supplied to me was not perfectly fitted to my vehicle. Most sections worked but had to add wire to the cross tail light section. That said, once installed it is functioning properly

Easy install, love plug in feature (no wire splicing,etc.) Works! No complaints

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2020 Kia Soul LX
    The 2020 Kia Soul LX is not offered with LED rear tail lights so you can use the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness part # 118813 which is a direct plug-n-play option with no cutting or splicing required. It will provide you with all the functions needed for most smaller trailers.

  • What 4-Way Wiring Harness do I Need for My 2022 Kia Soul without LED Tail Lights?
    For your 2022 Kia Soul with non-LEDs, I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118813. This 4-way comes with a ModuLite converter that ensures that your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailer. If you plan on towing a small trailer with your Soul, also recommend a ball mount/ball like the ones included in the Curt Towing Starter Kit # C45534. This kit also comes with a hitch cover and a locking hitch pin. The kit is also 100% manufactured...

  • Routing Power Wire for Powered Taillight Converter Through Firewall
    I can't recommend a specific spot but when our install crew routes a power wire, they'll typically find a grommet that's located in the driver's or passenger footwell (under the carpet) or in the firewall. In the firewall, there will be grommets that are used to route wiring harnesses between the dash and the engine compartment. Locate one of the grommets, and use a sharp knife to poke a hole in the grommet next to the wiring harness passing through the grommet. You'll want to be careful...

    For your 2022 Kia Soul, I recommend the Curt Class I Hitch # C67FR, which does have the smaller 1-1/4" receiver opening you need. This is a direct bolt on application that requires no drilling for the install. This is assembled in American and is rated up to 2,000 pounds towing and 200 pounds of tongue weight, though you will need to check your owner's manual for your vehicle's max capacities.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and 4-Way Flat Wiring Harness For a 2020 Kia Soul LX
    The LED vs non-LED wiring kits have to do with the type of tail lights that are installed on your 2020 Kia Soul. As the LX is the entry level it will have the non-LED tail lights. For that I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118813 for your Kia. I find the Tekonsha harness is more reliable than the Curt wiring. I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT25GR as the best receiver option. This is the only receiver we offer that has the larger 2" receiver....

    Thank you for all of that info! In order to utilize a light kit for your cargo carrier, I recommend using the Tekonsha T-One # 118813.

If you have the 1.6L Turbo engine there is currently not a trailer hitch receiver option available.
