CURT Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - C56192

  • 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.


  • 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 rear cargo area
    • Plug in T-connector
  • 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


  • Maximum amperage:
    • Stop/turn lights: 3.0 amps per circuit
    • Tail lights: 6.0 amps per circuit
  • Limited 1-year warranty


This custom-fit T-connector plugs into your vehicle's electrical junction box, which is located behind the driver's-side tail light. You will have to lift the storage lid in your cargo area and remove the panel on the driver's side to access this junction box. Once you've plugged in the T-connector, insert the 10-amp, low-profile fuse in position 2 and the 7.5-amp fuse in position 11 of the junction box (as shown below).

Fuse and wiring harness locations in junction box

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.

The T Connector Vehicle wiring harness works perfectly. I installed it so I can use a bike rack light fixture. The installation video was easy to follow!

Acura MDX

Fit was perfect, mounted easily by myself.
great on our Acura MDX.
Hitch arrived early.
My second hitch purchased etrailer, both were exactly as advertised.

2020 Acura MDX

I can’t be happier the installation and instructions were very straight forward and simple I would highly recommend anyone who is looking to add a trailer hitch to use this product


The installation was easier than expected. I was more worried about the cables and that was just as easy. Everything was plug and play.


Thanks George. I don't need products that often but when I do I always choose Etrailer and I recommend you guys to people all the time. The customer service is always outstanding. Thanks for the email.

2016 Acura MDX

Good price, fast delivery, and the installation videos for both the hitch and wiring were spot-.on helpful

2014 Acura MDX

Works well. The only tricky part on the install was reattaching the ground wire screw as it is in a spot that is hard to access. Tips from etrailer install video were great!


I purchase the hitch mostly for a bike rack on my 2019 Acura MDX. I got the wiring harness just in case. It was very easy to install both hitch and wiring harness. I was surprise to receive the hitch 4 days early and not a scratch. I am a real customer with no ties to this company.

2020 Acura MDX

Great fit fast delivery

2017 Acura MDX

This hitch was perfect for my new 2017 Acura MDX. The installation took about 20 minutes, that included gathering my tools!


Easy to follow instructions & installed in minutes.


Great product. Works perfectly


Great product! Great description! Great install video!
Buy it. It works
It is the best
I was not paid for my review

2016 Acura MDX

Installed this on our 2016 Acura MDX and couldn't have been more simple. I do recommend watching the installation video and you should be able to install this without even looking at the directions, but the printed instructions are pretty clear as well. This is a plug and play installation for my vehicle anyway and the testing LED worked well also. I chose to drop the harness down through the gromet in the floor pan instead of hanging it out under the tailgate for a cleaner installation but that is a personal preference. The entire installation took about 20 minutes.

Sold the vehicle where it was originally installed but purchased a 2018 same vehicle and installed one in the new one as well. Installation was exactly the same on the 2018 and product works well.

Acura MDX

Product description was accurate. Easy installations instructions to follow. Customer service agent was knowledgeable kind and efficient.
Have used the hitch receiver in my MDX Acura without any problems at all. Strongly recommend this internet outfit and the brands they offer.

All is well. Happy customer.
Louis P - 05/14/2017

Acura MDX

If you own an 2014-2017 ACURA, MDX, this is the simplest install imaginable. It took 20 minutes to install it and check it out. Only thing that was a little confusing was the extra parts and literature that are not needed for this modification. But really, just follow the instructions and you are done in a snap.

Cannot find a better set of wires.
Russ W - 07/06/2018


Very easy instal . Only took about 15 minutes p


The harness is as advertised and will suit my purposes well.

2015 Acura MDX

Website was great---easy to determine what wiring was needed and how to install. Shipped quickly and arrived with hitch in 4 days. Instructional video on how to install was well done and easy to follow. Only comment would be on the ground wire.....I found a ground stud that was much easier to get to on my '15 MDX, than what was shown in the video. Found one on the frame on the side of the bumper and the ground wire was able to reach it. etrailer has been great.


This is a great plug and play product...great instructions with great photos. One complaint I might have is the little black box came with a double sided sticky pad that even though I cleaned the metal surface for, it won’t stick so for now I zip ties it to a body wiring harness. The harness won’t be needed very often in this case. They wanted the hitch more for hauling bicycles on a carrier. But when they do they will have to drape it out through the hatch. If you want to have the plug outside near the hitch you will have to find a place to run it through the body on yourself. The wiring on this harness is very good quality. Very similar to OEM, the connector too!


Easy to install and works perfectly. No cutting or splicing needed, just plug and play!

2014 Acura MDX

This is a great easy to install, after market, flat 4 trailer wiring setup for the 2014 MDX. Installation was very simple and quick. I returned my Acura OEM part once I verified this was working. The Acura part cost three times as much as this part. If you need brake wiring setup, you will need the Acura part.

HI Mike,I also have a 2014 MDX and have ordered the Curt hitch and wiring harness. I called the Acura dealership to see if I needed the additional relay and they couldnt tell me. They could only tell me what was included in the Acura Trailer Hitch Kit. Am I correct in your comment above that you didnt need it? Did you have to get the brake wiring set up from Acura?thanks, becky

2016 Acura MDX

I bought a Curt hitch for my 2016 Acura MDX and it fit perfectly. Also bought a Curt T-Connector Wiring Harness with 4 pole Flat Trailer Connector and, following the simple instructions, installation was quick and simple. I'm happy to recommend

2014 Acura MDX

Great product and perfect fit for my Acura MDX. Installed by myself with two auto jacks and 2x4 cribbage between the 2 jacks.

2018 Acura MDX

BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE!! Piece lost out of box in shipping, new part here the next day! Incredible!
Product fits and works perfectly as well.

  • Is the Dealer Acura Relay Required to Install Trailer Wiring Harness on a 2014 Acura MDX
    If your 2014 Acura MDX did not come with the factory tow package then you would likely need to get the relay from an Acura dealer to install trailer wiring harness # C56192. It is possible though that an auto parts store would have an aftermarket relay. You can check your vehicle owners manual for the relay location to see if it is present on your model.

  • Why Does 2016 Acura MDX Call for 20 Amp Fuse But For Curt Trailer Wiring 10 Amp Fuse is Recommended
    I spoke with my contact at Curt and he said that you want to use the 10 amp fuse in the number 2 position on your fuse box. The factory Acura trailer wiring harness calls for a 20 amp fuse but with the Curt you have to use a 10 amp.

  • Is Additional Relay Needed When Installing Curt T-Connector Trailer Harness on 2014 Acura MDX
    Even if your 2014 Acura MDX doesn't have the factory tow package, the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness # C56192 and the fuses that come included should be all that you need to provide the Acura with a fully-functional 4-Way connector to power the trailer's signal lights. This is going to plug right into the vehicle's junction box behind the driver's-side tail light and the included fuses will be inserted into the correct slots as indicated in the instructions.

  • Installation of Curt Trailer Wiring Harness on a 2018 Acura MDX
    Yes, installation of the Curt trailer wiring harness # C56192 will be essentially identical on your 2018 Acura MDX as it is in the video for the 2016, linked for reference. That same goes for the Tekonsha wiring harness # 118628 which also fits your MDX. Please note that with either harness it may be necessary to see a local Acura dealer for a relay. The relay is needed to activate the tow package wiring circuit.

    I spoke to my contact at Curt and he informed me that no additional relays should be needed with the # C56192 wiring harness. This is the confirmed wiring harness for your 2016 Acura MDX. He also told me that you would want to ensure the supplied fuses are in the proper location. Also be sure that the ring terminal on the ground wire is touching bare metal on the body. However you will need to check with the dealer that the MDX’s computer does not need to be flashed to activate the towing...

  • Suggestions for Finding Trailer Hitch Installer for 2017 Acura MDX
    Trailer hitches like the Curt hitch part # C13146 that you referenced are pretty easy to install for mechanics relative to the types of projects they have to deal with on a routing basis. Your best option would be then find a local mechanic to you with a good repuation and have them install it. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well. For trailer wiring you'd then want the Curt kit part # C56192 which is a custom fit too. If you wanted to do some towing...

  • Installing the Curt T-Connector and Trailer Hitch Receiver on a 2015 Acura MDX
    The reason that we have the tech tip about possibly needing a relay from your local Acura dealer to properly install the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # C56192 is because over the years we have found that an insignificantly small amount of MDXs do not have this relay installed. It is a pretty rare thing and there is no rhyme or reason as to which ones do not have it. I even contacted some of our wiring harness manufacturers who hadn't heard of...

For a trailer hitch the most popular option and what I recommend is # C13146. I have linked a video showing an example installation of the hitch as well. I also recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop.

  • Recommendation for a Trailer Hitch Receiver and Wiring Harness on a 2014 Acura MDX
    The Curt Class III Receiver Hitch, # C13146, is a great choice for your 2014 Acura MDX and offers maximum towing capacity of 6000 pounds and tongue weight capacity of 900 pounds. It is a good idea to check your owner's manual to obtain your vehicle's towing capacity and follow which ever has the lowest weight capacity rating. The Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring Harness, # C56192, plugs directly into the vehicle's existing wiring and should be a pretty easy install for you. Before you begin...

  • Adding a 7-Way Trailer Connector and Brake Controller to a 2015 Acura MDX
    For many vehicles, including your 2015 Acura MDX, there isn't a plug and play type of 7-Way trailer connector so one has to be hardwired in. This is because on those vehicles the vehicle itself is not set up for a 7-Way trailer connector. To add one you would first need to install a 4-Way which will provide the light functions for the trailer. For your MDX you can use # 118628 to add the 4-Way. Then to add the 7-Way you will need # ETBC7. The 4-Way will plug into the ETBC7 leaving 4 wires...

  • Recommended 7-Way Trailer Connector for 2017 Acura MDX
    I was able to find your invoice and confirm you have the Curt 4-way trailer connector # C56192. This does not work without additional components for towing a trailer with electric brakes. You will need to upgrade to a 7-way and add a brake controller. My recommendation for you is to use the 7-Way RV Upgrade Kit for Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 12 Gauge Wires # ETBC7L which will connect to your existing 4-way and also add 12v power from your vehicle battery.

For a transmission cooler, the Derale # D13503 is a great option. You just need to make sure that you have room for it under your hood.
