Installation

This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located in the rear cargo area. You will have to remove the rear threshold plate, privacy screen, storage covers, and floor covering to access this harness. Several trim panel fasteners will need to be removed, along with the lower interior trim panels on the driver's side.


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


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.

Overall I was very pleased but a few things to consider. I purchased a wiring harness on Sunday and chose the standard shipping (I think it was free or very inexpensive). The anticipated arrival date was Friday. By Wednesday I hadn’t received a notice that the harness was shipped so I contacted etrailer and they told me that Friday was only “the anticipated” arrival date and since I didn’t purchase expedited shipping my order hadn’t been processed yet. I was told my only option was one or two day shipping if I wanted it for Friday. I opted for two day and etrailer did get it shipped that night so I received it Friday.

The wiring harness is excellent. Easy to install and worked great. Exactly as described.

Good quality, has worked as needed, would come back to trailer again.

I don't think this is a truly vehicle specific wiring harness (read for more).

Harness was relatively easy to install after removing the floor panels, threshold scuff plate and pulling enough of driver side trim to access the factory harness. I used the grommet location in the center of the cargo pan near the bumper to run the wire to the hitch area under the car. I did have to cut the wires going to the 4 flat connector to fit through the hole in the metal - then cut slice in factory rubber grommet to push wire through and reconnected the 4 wires with butt splice connectors inside the cargo area.

Where I am confused, is instructions indicate this version only works with 2 red wires in the cars harness for the 12 volt power or you have to run a separate wire to the battery. While the 2022 advance only has 1 red wire in the cars harness, the Acura OEM wiring harness for this model does not require a 12 volt run to the battery, only connecting to the cars harness to a very similar controller box then to the 4pin flat harness with installing a 7.5a fuse in the open "small trailer" fuse position in the center under hood fuse panel.

With fuse installed, car harness has 12 volts on the red wire pin, it is just in the incorrect location compared to the 118800 harness. If factory OEM harness does not require separate 12volt power why isn't the power pin in this harness in the correct location matching the car harness?

A good youtube video from a professional hitch installer shows this approach.

While it may be possible to install it this way and have some power, I still recommend running that wire because otherwise you only have power coming from the lights. Down the line it is more than likely that you would run into issues with not having enough power.



by:

Excellent product. I did find I ordered the wrong harness but did not know that until I read the instructions and accessed my connector plug on the car and found I needed the 118804 harness with 12v wire to the battery. Have delt with etrailer before and had excellent response from Vicki who sent me the correct harness on the same day. Thank you!

Rec'd my Tekonsha Custom fit trailer Wiring harness for my 2019 Acura RDX! Great price and the quality is the same as U-Haul harnesses. Big exception, my harness through etrailer.com cost me $33, at U-Haul it was $75, what a difference in price! Thank you etrailer, I will have it installed tomorrow, should fit perfectly, made specifically for my SUV. Perfect!!!

I have used my wiring harness during this past year. It has worked well every time I use it. I will always check with etrailer 1st before purchasing any accessory I might need. Excellent products!

I have used these wiring harnesses from T-One through E-Trailer before so even though I have not yet installed this one I trust that it will be as good as the ones I have used before. Good product, fast shipping, great value.

2020 Acura RDX

This is my second order from etrailer and the comments apply to both orders, class two hitches and electrical harnesses for a Subaru Forester XT and a 2020 Acura RDX. The hitches arrived promptly, well packaged with no damage. I could install them with minimal fuss. Hardest part was loosening the rubber exhaust hangers. Everything lined up and works fine. Haven't towed with the RDX yet, but towed a trailer with several motorcycles on the XT for a few hundred miles in MD and PA with no issues.

etrailer offers a great product, ships promptly, at a decent price. Will definitely continue to be a customer.

Items arrived ahead of time.
etrailer
got my order out the door
very quickly.
The amazing thing was that they had
the item in stock.
The 20 RDX required a new hitch
design.
Drawtite was the first out but NOBODY
could get one EXCEPT etrailer and I looked hard.
Without exception they are COURTEOUS and they deliver.
That is a well managed company full of motivated people.
Top to bottom.

Great price and quality. Installed on 2020 Acura RDX...some re & re involved which has nothing to do with product. Use recommended tools for panel removal. Acura buried the location to connect up to...??? If your tech savvy you’ll save big money over dealer install.

  • Will The Tekonsha 118800 Trailer Wiring Kit Work On A 2022 Acura RDX
    Great question. Yes, the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118800 will work with your 2022 Acura RDX with no problems.

  • Is Additional Fuse Needed to Install Tekonsha Trailer Wiring in 2019 Acura RDX
    Is it possible you didn't install the blue fuse that comes with the Tekonsha trailer wiring kit part # 118800 into the fuse holder that's on the power wire of the kit? Without this fuse installed no power would make it to the module. Worst case scenario if your vehicle does not have this circuit active you could route a wire from the vehicle's positive battery post to this wire and you'd have the harness active.

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2021 Acura RDX
    The trailer wiring harness I recommend for a 2021 Acura RDX is the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector part # 118800 which offers a plug and play install. It provides a 4-way flat connector which is the most common and widely used for trailers without brakes. There are a few panels inside you must remove then you can simply plug in the harness and drape the connector out the hatch when needed.

    The Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector item # 118800 you referenced does not require a fused connection to the battery.

  • Why Does Tekonsha T-One Connector 118800 Not Match Wire Layout Of Connector In 2019 Acura RDX?
    Thanks for the pictures! Since the connector on your 2019 Acura RDX only has 1 red wire, your vehicle does not have the plus 12v power provision meaning the Tekonsha # 118800 is not the correct harness as it is designed for vehicles with the plus 12v power provision. Moving the wire on the connector is not recommended as it will void the warranty of the harness. Instead you will need to use the Tekonsha # 118804 which is the correct harness for your RDX without the plus 12v power provision. I...

  • 4-Way Trailer Wiring Harness that Fits 2024 Acura RDX
    For your 2024 Acura RDX the correct 4-way kit is the part # 118804 if your vehicle DOES NOT have the plus 12-volt power provision or the part # 118800 if your RDX does have it.

  • Would Trailer Hitch and Wiring from 2017/2018 RDX Also Fit 2020 Acura RDX
    There is a big enough difference between the 2017/2018 Acura RDX models and the 2020 that they had to come out with a new hitch fit. So the 2020 would require the part # 76268 that you referenced and you would not be able to reuse the hitch from the older RDX. The same is true for the trailer wiring as well. You'd have to go with the # 118800 on the 2020 model and you'd be set.

  • Trailer Hitch Solution for 2019 Acura RDX with 19 inch Spare Wheel/Tire
    I have a solution for you but none of the hitches we offer for your 2019 Acura RDX with Tech Package can be used with a 19 inch spare stored underneath the vehicle. So what your best option would be is replace the spare you have with a smaller one from Acura so that you can then install the Draw Tite hitch part # 76268. For trailer wiring you'd then want the Tekonsha kit part # 118800 and you'd be set with an easy to install trailer wiring harness setup that's also very reliable.

  • Trailer Wiring Solution for 2019 Acura RDX without 12 Volt Power Provision

That said, the ZCI uses sensors to tap into the vehicle wiring instead of splices so the install is not invasive and still relatively easy.
