Installation

This custom-fit T-connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located in your rear cargo area, behind the driver's-side and passenger's-side tail lights. You will have to remove the rear scuff panel to access these connection points. 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.


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.


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.

I ordered a hitch and wiring for our church van.

I give this company a 5 + for your product.

The hitch was easy to put on but the wiring took a little longer but
I was able to get it on the van.

I would recommend this company for other products that they offer.

2021 Ford Transit T350

I was able to install it, but there were some serious hurdles. The cables were too short for the transit 350HD crew. I had to extend both the black wire that goes to the battery as well as the green one that goes to the other light. The most time I spent on identifying the problem with one wire that was loose in the socket.
I was able to resolve the problems and it works now as desired.


Comments
It is possible that depending on how the wires are routed that additional wiring may be needed. I recommend taking a look at the video install that we did on a 2106 Ford Transit T350. And the FAQ on routing the power wire under the vehicle.

2020 Ford Transit T350

Liked the kit but found a better way to install without cutting grommets. Mounted below drivers side tail light. See pics. Power wire was run all the way to the fuse box under hood instead of battery under drivers seat. This kept all wiring outside keeping all grommet seals intact, and saving time on removal of interior panels which are difficult with 15 passenger seating still installed.



by:

The only issue I had to deal with was mounting the harness box. I eventually gave up and used a wire tie to mount to existing hole. 44° may have been the issue with the double stick tape?
Other than my vehicle's panels and battery under driver's seat, the install went well.

Ford Transit Connect

the connections were supposed to be for ford transit t350, they were not the same as on the vehicle. i was going to splice in the wires but have not gotten around to it.


Comments
As long as your 2015 Ford Transit T350 has single rear wheels the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness Part # C56327 will not require splicing and will connect to the factory connectors.

This is an easy to install kit, and the install video made it even simpler. I chose to mount my wiring on the left doorpost, where it can easily be pulled out through the rear door weatherstripping when needed. I was able to keep all wiring inside the van compartment and frame rails. Two hopefully helpful comments:
* In order to mount to the door rail, it is necessary to splice in a couple of feet of wire to the green wire between the two light buckets. By cutting this wire, I was able to snake it through the frame tubing under floor behind the rear door latch. I did not have any wiring outside the vehicle.
* There is a wiring lug available on the side of the driver's seat, adjacent to the battery compartment, which may be a more convenient lug to attach the hot wire to. The video shows running the wire all the way to the engine compartment.
Best of luck.

Really like this item. The kit is complete with everything needed to do an average (read: mediocre) installation based on the etrailer videos.
In order to do a truly exceptional, professional installation there needs to be some changes to the wiring a bit.

I mounted the control box on the 'inside' of the D pillar right behind and above the rubber grommet that houses the OEM lead for the left rear tail light. The location shown in the videos is unacceptable. Since my mounting location inside the pillar is higher, that caused the wiring to be short for the right side which required another 18 inches of wire spliced in. Also, since the D Pillar on the Transit is Boron hardened, it's almost impossible to drill through which required locating the ground to another location below which could be drilled with the self tapping screw.

The real fun begins when its time to run the 12 volt power lead to the battery.
The video shows the basics on the proximity to run the wires and where to mount the Ring connector to the lug next to the fuse box under the hood.
What the video didn't show was the huge PIA it is to route the wire keeping it away from heat sources and anything that might cause abrasive forces to the wire over time. The video showed the van up on a lift where the installer could have 'easy' access to all of those little nooks and crannies, and probably with some help from a second person.
Try doing all of that while the vehicle is not on a lift, where you have to raise the vehicle for access so you can get underneath to run this one wire.
I used a good amount of plastic loom where needed, but was able to eventually able to get the wire to the 12 volt source per the instructions.

Please don't take this as a complaint. I knew what I was getting into before ordering this kit.
It's just that the videos are a bit misleading in terms of the time requirements. It takes a whole lot more time than they say, and it's not really 'easy' per se... it is more of a challenge.

The hardest part for me was to fight the urge to forego my principles of maintaining excellence, for mediocrity just to avoid the hassles of doing the job the right way as opposed to taking the easy way out...

Regardless, I'm still giving this item 5 stars. It's truly a great kit for the money. Just do the job the right way from the beginning and you won't have issues later on.

Our previously installed harness quit working. Something got fried inside the converter. The part we ordered from etrailer was literally a snap to install and works exactly as it should. So my trailer lights are back in business! The price was right, shipping time was acceptable and it took me about an hour to remove the old harness and install the new.

Regarding installation on a Ford Transit: I've seen several comments about the difficulty of making connection to the battery, which is under the drivers seat. Our van has a remote positive terminal in the engine bay to make jump starting easier. Our original harness was wired to this terminal, so I just kept the wiring in place.


Comments
Still working as advertised. No issues at all.

The unit stopped working the left turn signal. it will be constantly on when I connect the trailer plug.


Comments
Thank you for your review! If you havent already, sometimes checking wiring connections and making sure the ground wire has a clean, direct contact point can solve these sorts of issues. I hope this helps!
-- Etrailer Expert Brooke M - 08/20/2021

by:

The kit comes with everything you will need to wire for a trailer plug. The only thing I needed to modify was the green wire for the RH turn/brake signal. It is a little short. The connectors were of good quality and it is a simple install. You will need to remove the driver's seat to access the battery for the 12V power wire unless you are making your connection under the hood

Ford Edge

Very well assembled kit. I used the e trailer install video and followed it step by step. Although very informative the video and printed directions did not address Transit 150s with finished interiors. Unable to route my power cord along the wall I zip tied it underneath then ran the line to a 1/4" hole I drilled under the seat between the base and wheelwell upper edge. Completely hidden and a straight route to the battery under the seat. Total time about 1 1/2 hours.


Comments
Were glad to hear the install worked well for you. Youll want to make sure that you use a grommet or some silicone caulk to protect the wire where it passes through the vehicle firewall, the metal edge can abrade the wire over time and cause the copper conductor to short out on the metal.

2015 Ford Transit Connect

I bought this thing so that I could put a trailer hitch on my 2015 Ford transit 150 work vehicle. Because the transit is a real POS it wasn’t easy. But the instructions were comprehensive and the installation went as well as could be expected. The product worked flawlessly and has worked for over a year now. From a trailer wiring standpoint this is not a bad deal. Shipping was as promised, I had no reason to talk to the people about a customer service issue. It got four stars instead of five because I had to install it on the stupid transit van. I hit my head twice under the truck and I carry a grudge. I know this isn’t etrailers fault but somebody has to pay.

The etrailer trailer hitch I purchased looks like excellent quality, and was shipped quickly. Thanks etrailer!



by:

Had Uhaul do it originally and everything they did failed including brake controller.
Replaced all their junk and every thing I did still works perfectly.
Simple install process and strongly recommend if your trailer has old style bulbs.
If you don't use this device with bulbs you will fry you BCM. LEDs seem to work. Ford is ignorant to it so if your van lights stop working, tell them replace the BCM, no need for their diagnosis.



by:

Curt hitches and acessories are all top flight, as is the service received from etrailer.



by:

Excellent arrived right away.



by:

The harness and wiring was easy to install with normal tools. Fit was adequate with a little fiddling. After a year there is little sign of weather induced degradation of any of the wiring. I like the fact that the plug comes with a snap on weather protector. Since I tow only 6 or 7 times a year I have no idea how durable the plug will be.



by:

I received the Hitch for my Ford T350 Van and it was really east to install, great instructions. It came in a Well packed box and in pristine condition.
It was easy to install and I did the job myself with little problem.
I haven't done the wiring yet but I am assume it will be a no brainer as well
Good service, great product



by:

The instructions and connectors were helpful. The parts seemed to be of good quality. It could use longer wires leading to the tail lights. I cut the four pin off and wired it to a 7 pole rv socket.

Would buy again and again.

  • Does Install of Trailer Wiring on Vehicle Drain Battery
    It would be incredibly out-of-the-ordinary for a trailer wiring harness like the Curt # C56327 you installed to cause a dead battery on a vehicle. Most likely what happened is that when you installed it last night you had the doors/hatch open which was running the interior lights for an extended period of time which then drained the battery. And it wasn't until this morning that you tried to start the vehicle this morning that you noticed the dead battery.

    If you have a vehicle wiring harness like the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness 4-Way Trailer Connector # C56327 you will have a power wire that is run to the battery on your 2016 Ford Transit T150. Make sure to check that the in line fuse which should be located by the battery is not blown and feeding power to your 4-way connector.

  • Which Trailer Wiring Harness from Curt was Designed for 2017 Ford Transit T250
    Curt has a custom fit trailer wiring kit that fits your 2017 Ford Transit T250 with the part # C56327 which installs easily by plugging in line with the taillight connectors but they don't have the # C56190 listed as a fit for your vehicle so we don't have specific install instructions we can recommend that have been tested. Since your vehicle has combined trailer wiring the red wire being grounded is the correct approach but you might check the connections of the other wires as well.
