Tekonsha Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - 118325

  • Custom Fit
  • Trailer Hitch Wiring

  • 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 - no cutting, splicing or tapping required. Includes tail light converter.

  • 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 - no cutting or splicing of wires
    • Locate connection points along frame rail
    • Plug in T-connector
  • Includes a tail light converter to ensure that your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailer
  • 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: 4 amps per circuit
  • 1-Year limited warranty


Installation

This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located beneath your vehicle, along the driver's-side frame rail.


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.


Tail Light Converter

A tail light converter 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. The tail light 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.

One year ago I bought this wiring harness for my 1999 Ford Ranger XLT after trying to repair and fix the pigtails that the previous owner of my vehicle installed. After installing this system, I noticed an immediate benefit of having it plug into the existing factory wiring harness for the lights everything works phenomenal and perfectly every single day that I hook up my trailer. In the year that I've had it I have not had to troubleshoot lighting issues especially with your running lights on no issues whatsoever everything runs perfect! don't be like me and buy a bunch of other stuff like additional pigtails trying to fix what someone else has done just buy this system it's worth the money and go for it! I was so confident in this system that I just installed wiring and a hitch on a 2018 Ford Transit t250 and that system is phenomenal too!



by:

Seems to be a good product. Attached plugs as described and fits great. Tested all lights on the truck and plugged into 3 different trailers. Everything works like it should.



by:
1999 Ford Ranger

So to start, I bought this 3 years ago & installed it on my 99 ford ranger after giving up on the pigtails that were previously used as trailer lights. So, the system is designed to either run normal or just stop in the case that something goes haywire in the module. This is what happened in the old system module. Therefore I bought a new one & my trailer lights are running like new again! I figure since I'm pulling a trailer 8 months a year, spending ~$40 every 3 years is not a bad deal. It's easy enough to install, lowet your spare tire. Locate the factory wire harness (usually up behind hitch & behind the bumper) disconnect lights, insert the module with addition of silicone paste, snap together, put it back in general area, route your wire & raise your spare tire. 15 mins max. & done! Super easy!

Wiring is NOT conventional..
None of
the harness wires matched up to the flat 4 wiring.
Red was yellow green was brown etc.
And wiring or color ceding was included with the 7 pin harness

I do see that this harness is showing that it is not a confirmed fit for the 2017 Jeep Cherokee.

Small, well-built wiring harness is just what I need for my vehicle, and customized to fit it, so no guesswork or trying different combinations needed.

Its been holding up, but I have not connected it in nearly a year. I will try to do so later this week, because I am finally moving the trailer after upgrading it.



by:
1996 Ford Ranger

I installed this on a 1996 Ranger. I removed the rearmost bumper mounting bolt on each side and then loosened the other two. This allowed the bumper to drop down far enough to easily access the wiring. At that point you unplug the factor harness and plug in the trailer wiring. I drilled one hole behind the license plate to hold the wiring harness in place and the installation was complete.

No problems. Easy installation.

Plug and play. Can't beat it. I bought one of these for my 92 Ford Ranger and one for my 96 Ford Ranger. 2 different part numbers. Simple as unplugging the harness where the bed attaches to the frame at the rear and plug this in between the two plug halves. EZ-PZ. I have used etrailer before and i will use them again if i need to.

Worked just fine when I got it, but it seemed like a long time to get it 250 miles down the road from where I’m at.

We bought aTekonsha custom fit vehicle wiring for wiring up the trailer and it was perfect. Wiring a trailer has never been so easy, we made a great choice. etrailer is very good to work with and they deliver fast. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

Product arrived on-time and thanks to the helpful instructions, I was able to install this wiring harness in a matter of minutes. My son is out using the truck w/trailer to mow lawns or I would take a picture of the installed harness. I am very satisfied with the product.

Product was as described. It plugged right into the original harness everything thing is great. I went cheap on shipping and still had the harness in 4 days. I will not go anywhere else for trailer parts. Awesome job

by:
1997 Ford Ranger

I was able to install the part that I bought on my truck, but I didn't realize that the 4-pole flat output doesn't have a wire for a brake light, and I need a wire for a brake light. Do you have any suggestions for a supplementary/replacement part that I could buy from you guys that would include a wire for a brake light? I have a 1997 Ford Ranger, and the T portion of the product that I bought works just fine - the only issue is that the brake light wire is lost somehow in the conversion.

This wiring harness includes a taillight converter, which takes the brake lamp and turn signal signals and combines them onto one circuit. Many vehicles use whats called a separate taillight system, with separate bulbs for turn signals and brake lamps. Most trailers, however use the more simple combined system that carries both signals on the same circuit.



by:
1999 Ford Ranger

Couldn't be happier with the wiring harness. It plugged directly into the wiring harness on the truck and had enough length to route it along the frame and secure it with wire ties in several places. The converter came with self-stick adhesive which made mounting a breeze, although I also secured it with a small bolt through the mounting hole on the converter. During the installation, I used 1/2 inch plastic ribbed wire conduit to protect the wiring harness from chaffing, although it is not necessary. I installed it on a 1999 Ford Ranger, which has separate turn signal lamps from the tail/brake lamps. If you have a similar vehicle, I highly recommend this product. Also shipping was extremely fast.



by:
1994 Ford Ranger

Awesome hitch wiring for my ford ranger. I only had to unplug current wiring and plug in this adaptor and that was all. I would like to let everyone know that if your ford ranger (mine is 1994) needs wiring harness for a hitch this is the exact fit and is still working 1 year later.



by:
2010 Ford Ranger

I ordered a trailer wiring harness for my Ford Ranger. It arrived several days earlier than scheduled, which is always appreciated! Installation was very easy, took only about 10 minutes. It plugged right into the factory wiring harness. A quick check with the voltmeter to verify everything works, which it does, and I'm ready to tow! Thanks e-trailer!



by:
1993 Ford Ranger

This product fit the factory wiring harness as advertised. Made adding the trailer wiring connection very simple without creating new problems in the vehicles wiring harness. I would buy this product again if I needed to add trailer wiring to another vehicle.



by:
1994 Ford Ranger

Great product thus far. The installation was simple (the connector is right above the back of the bumper), and between the supplied zip tie and the adhesive backing on the plastic box, it was easy to mount securely to the back of the bumper mount structure. Now I just need to figure out how to securely and cleanly hide away the wiring while it's not in use.

The whole experience with etrailer has been great so far, btw. Everything I ordered shipped in sturdy boxes, was well packaged, and shipped quickly.



by:

I'll tell ya what, this made wiring for my trailer a no-brainer. I found the connection on the rear underside of my truck, separated, and inserted the wiring harness, and i was off and running! (just had to make sure everything was secure).

thanks guys, custom harness makes this easy for someone who is not so truck or wire savvy.



by:
1995 Ford Ranger

As a seasoned auto repair tech I can tell you that the fact that this harness just connects inline to the rear taillight harness is priceless! No exposed splices to corrode and damage the vehicle harness. The flat 4 wire standard trailer connector connects to any trailer without brakes, perfect for my utility trailer. I may have to repair damaged wires on customer cars & trucks but I'll never have to fix them on my truck! Thanks ETRAILER

2015 Mazda B Series Pickup

Received the T-One Vehicle harness with four pole trailer connector for my 1997 Mazda B Series pickup. Very easy to install as you just unplug the quick disconnect connector and install the T-One between the connectors and re-connect. A couple of zip ties and you are done. Less than 15 minutes. Works great!!

Very easy to install tried all the lights everything worked perfect very pleased with this product IF I add a trailer hitch to another vehicle I will use this type of connection no more splicing wires and taping them up GREAT PRODUCT

  • Troubleshooting Wire Harness Short Circuit on a T-One Trailer Wiring Harness with Converter
    It sounds like the converter on the T-One Wiring Harness, item # 118325, is shorted. There are many reasons which could cause the converter to go bad. Most often connecting to a trailer that has a short in the wiring is the cause. The only solution in this case is to replace the wiring harness and then making sure the wiring on any trailer you may be towing is correct.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Turn Signal and Brake Lights Not Working On 2004 Ford Ranger Factory 4-Way
    The fuses for the trailer turn signals on your 2004 Ford Ranger are in the engine compartment fuse panel. They are 7.5amp fuses at locations 38 and 42. It is strange that they separated the fuse for the trailer running lights as it is in the passenger compartment fuse box at location 2. It has a 10 amp rating.

  • Are Trailer Turn Signals Working Opposite of 1997 Ford Ranger Turn Signals with Brake Pressed Normal
    There is nothing wrong with the installation of the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118325 on your 1997 Ford Ranger. Your trailer lights working opposite of your Ranger turn signals when you press the brake pedal is actually pretty common.

  • Trailer Right Turn Signal Does Not Work When Connected to 3 Different Vehicles
    It certainly does sound like a short on the trailer that caused some problems, but I would not rule out the possibility that it is just coincidence and that there is an issue with all the vehicles in some way, shape, or form. If the trailer draws more that 2.1 amps per side for turn/brake lights then that would cause the converter to blow. On the trailer, make sure its connector is free of corrosion. Then you will want to trace the wiring leading back from the 4-Way to determine if there...

  • Troubleshooting a Shorted Out T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118325 on a 1996 Ford Ranger
    It sounds like the # 118325 might be bad since you checked the voltage before the unit and there was power but after there is not. However, since this is the second one of these you have gone through it sounds like you might have a short somewhere on the trailer that is causing the # 118325 to short out and quit working. I would recommend you go over your trailer wiring and check for any bad grounds, loose wires or corrosion and fix as necessary. I attached installation instructions...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation and Functions for a 1993 Ford Ranger
    On a vehicle that has turn signals that are separate from the brake lights, a converter, # 118325 in this case, is required. The converter takes the separate signals on the vehicle and combines them to turn/brake lights on the same circuit which is what trailers use. Your trailer has what is called a wishbone harness. Normally, yellow is the driver side and green is the passenger side. When there is 2 brown wires this means that the running light signal is split at the connector so you...

  • Why Would a Trailer Wiring Harness Not Have Power at the Connector
    If you have a # 118325 installed on your Ford Ranger and it does not have power ran to it then your truck's taillights would also not be working. That would typically indicate a blown fuse under the hood of the truck. If you have a different style of trailer wiring harness most likely you have a blown trailer wiring fuse. I attached a help article on troubleshooting trailer wiring harnesses for you to check out as well.

    Sounds like you are thinking about hardwiring a 4-way to your 1993 Ford Ranger. Before you do so you should know that you won't be able to successfully pull that off due to the vehicle wiring design of your Ranger. It has separate turn signals from stop lights so you have to use a harness with a converter built into it like the part # 118325 that you referenced which is a confirmed fit. 4-Way Trailer wiring combines the blinkers and stoplights and that's why taillight wiring like what...

  • Tail Lights and/or Brake Lights On and Use Turn Signal One side Brightens-Other Side Light Goes Dim
    It sounds like you have one of two problems. Either the wiring on the 1995 Ford Ranger is not converted as it should be to allow the brake and turn signals to work on the same circuit correctly, or there is a ground issue on the trailer that is showing up when the brakes and turn signals are applied at the same time. If your trailer wiring does not have an inline converter, like the black box on the # 118325 T-One Harness, then you will need to purchase one and install it. The #118325...

  • Using Trailer Lights on a 1997 Ford Ranger with Separate Turn Signals and Brake Lights
    The 1997 Ford Ranger has separate turn signals and brake lights. Trailer lights have combined brake lights and turn signals. What you will need to do is use trailer wiring harness # 118325 which plugs into the factory tail light connectors on the truck (or if those are gone you can cut off the end that plugs into the vehicle and hard wire it in). If you have to cut off the end that plugs into the vehicle tail light connectors then hardwire it as follows: brown connects to vehicle running...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness for a 1993 Ford Ranger
    The separate brake lights and turn signals on your 1993 Ford Ranger is called a 3-wire or separate system. These systems require a converter, which is not uncommon, to make them compatible with the 2-wire or combined system used by trailers. The wiring harnesses for your Ranger have converters built in. You can use # 118325 which will tee in line with the truck's tail light wiring. I have included a link to the instructions for you.

    I am a little confused by what you mean. If the factory relay located in the fuse box on your 1993 Ford Ranger has burnt up when the trailer wiring was connected then you have a short in one of the circuits. In order to fix this you would need to trace each wire back as far as possible while checking for breaks in the wire and repairing as needed. If you are referring to the converter box that attaches in between the trailer connector and port on the vehicle then the solution is the same...

    We have found the Tekonsha wiring products, like the T-One # 118325 for your 1997 Ford Ranger, to be the most reliable out of all of the wiring options we carry. With that being said if 2 different local shops are thinking that your ECM is the issue then that would not be the result of the Hopkins Wiring # 40215 (or any other wiring for that matter) and you would need to get that checked out for the T-One to operate properly.
