Installation

This custom-fit T-connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located behind the driver's-side and passenger's-side rear access panel. You will have to remove the floor covering, rear cargo area cover, and scuff panel to access this harness. 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.


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.

Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector - C56434

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (476 Customer Reviews)

This is a review of the packaging of the trailer hitch, electric harness and locking connector. The items were placed in a box and delivered to my driveway with no packaging material to be seen. Huge holes and the powder coating scrapped off. Heavy meatal items have made large holes in both long sides of the box and not sure if it is worth installing to see if bending or wiring harness has been compromised.



by:

Curt makes some really good products, But they need to look closer at this... I changed the install so It's tons easier. Newer Toyota rav4's have the battery in the rear on the passenger side. This is very convenient for running power to the module. But they want you to mount the module on the other side of the vehicle and run power wires over. I mounted everything to the passenger side and then switched the signal wires for the turn signals (green and yellow). This is a much easier install than running additional wires all the way across. (See pics) Install and operation id great!!!

2022 Toyota RAV4

I recently ordered a Class 3 hitch and T-Style wiring harness system from Curt for my Rav4 Adv. The parts arrived at my doorstep on a Wednesday afternoon as promised, and I had completed the DIY install with the help from etrailer’s [online] videos for my car’s make and model that same night. Hardware fits great and appears to have strong welds and a solid protective coating, and the wiring system was completely plug and play as marketed. Recommended to me by a family member, and I would further recommend this product to any stranger.



by:

Worked as advertised. Panels were easy to pull loose and snap back in place. Access behind panels was a little tight but was able to carefully route wires to complete install. Purchased Curt brackets to attach near hitch receiver.



by:

Great trailer wiring kit. Installation was easy following the online video for how to release the cargo area panels to access wiring to install T-connectors and control unit.



by:

Works great do not run it through inside interior panels go underneath the car my rav 4 has a shield where the break lines run needs to be up high enough too be able to crawl on your back to remove it work your way up to engine compartment feed wire up to your battery used wire zip ties to tie wire to your brake line put back together shield has plastic plugs don’t lose them or break them

still holding up great no problems working great once in a will I spry a little bit off lithium great on plug ends both car and trailer so they go together a little easer try to keep ends from moister problems with plugs



by:

Glad I bought the wiring harness after watching a YouTube video can blow fuse box so this was a plug-and-play and work perfect!!!



by:
2019 Toyota RAV4

there was quite a bit of rear interior panel removal and one wire had to be fed all the way to the battery beneath the car. But the instructional video was very good and if you follow that step by step you'll be OK. Works perfectly on my 2019 Rav4.



by:

The products installed easy but the box as others have stated was terrible, half the hitch was hanging out of the box when it arrived and it was missing a lot of paint, also the tail light kit package was in the box with the hitch so it got all smashed up from the lacl of packaging



by:
2020 Toyota RAV4

Great hitch, well made, great design with hidden crossbar. Best product at best price for my 2020 Rav4. Comes loose in a cardboard box so expect minor damage to finish for protruding parts. Touch up with matte black spray paint if needed. If you figure a way to support the hitch receiver during installation that is adjustable, one person can put the receiver on without lowering the muffler, but lowering the muffler makes it easier to get the bolts in. Bolts on driver side can be torqued easily but due to narrow space on passenger side, you will need something like a "Stanley Proto J5124 3/8" Drive Torque Adapter 3/4"" to properly torque.



by:

Ordered the trailer hitch and wiring harness on 7/17/23. Apparently due to high demand of the trailer hitch, delivery was delayed approximately 5 weeks. When the order arrived, the wiring harness was missing (it was listed on the packing list) as the box was opened and taped shut by UPS. Emailed etrailer a few times without a response, then called. The CSR requested I send a few pics of the box showing the torn flap and the box taped up. A replacement wiring harness was sent and received a few days later. I hope to install the harness in the next few days. There are plenty of you tube videos showing installation, so I don't expect any problems.

2023 Toyota RAV4

I always love shopping on etrailer.com. It’s easy to search and find the things I want when they have it. Delivery is expeditious and their customer service is amazing! I already received an email with additional instructions and videos for installation above what was delivered with the trailer hitch.



by:

I think it’s great that you’re able to buy the hitch and install it yourself and the wiring. I saved a ton of money.



by:
2023 Toyota RAV4

Works well, straight forward install. They should change the sides though, so the converter box can go with the 12V battery on the passenger side on the hybrids.



by:
Toyota RAV4

This kit came with everything needed to connect the trailer lights. The installation video for the Rav4 is for the hybrid model which has the battery in the back of the vehicle. This makes for an easy installation. My Rav4 is not a hybrid so the battery is in the engine compartment. The main power wire supplied is long enough to reach the battery, but I could not find a good way to get through the firewall. I ended up getting power from the fusebox under the dash. The adhesive pad included with the kit did not stick so I used some adhesive pads that I already had.



by:

Great trailer hitch and wiring. Was easy to install and came with very clear instructions. Way cheaper than having one installed professionally.



by:

Received order and trailer wiring harness was missing

I checked and I see that we have been able to send out a replacement harness to you. If you have any questions or concerns on it please let me know.



by:
2019 Toyota RAV4

This is the custom fit harness for the 2019 RAV4. Installation in the 2023 model (as described in the video) requires an additional self tapping screw, so pick one up before starting the install (I found myself using more that the provided number of tie wraps as well). Otherwise pretty seamless.



by:

Works great, easy to install other then running the battery wire for power is a pain.

Still working after a year, only thing I did different from instructions was ran the power wire internally under the carpet and through the firewall instead of under the vehicle, takes more time but last so much longer

@Michael Great! I usually recommend folks use wire loom like # 7509-10 if you want to hit the 'easy button' and run the wire under the vehicle. The loom does a great job of protecting the wire against damage and road gack....


by:

Box was broken when it arrived. The hitch easily punched through it. Some of the powder coat scratched out.



by:

After a year and still working great towed my trailer multiple times and havent had one issue with harness.



by:

Wiring connected the the car's wiring without a problem. I did run into a few troubles though. I used this kit on a 2019 Rav4 Hybrid Limited. The wires from the left turn signal to the control box were too short of allow mounting to the the floor. I had to remove a speaker box to run the wire behind it and mount the control box. Since the wires wouldn't reach the floor I mounted the box to the wall behind the speaker, mistake, the box fit too close to the wall to allow room for the controller. I wound up mounting the controller the the lower left portion of the speaker box. After that everything went well.

Would have given 5 stars if wires had been a little longer

  • Does Power Wire of Curt Trailer Wiring for 2022 Toyota RAV4 Have to Run to Vehicle Battery
    For trailer wiring like the Curt # C56434 you really need to run the power wire up to the vehicle battery positive post. I know it's tempting to find an outlet like you mentioned and it would work on some level you would be eliminating the circuit protection of bypassing the vehicle wiring so we can't recommend it.

  • Troubleshooting Curt Trailer Wiring for 2021 Toyota RAV4 that Stopped Working
    If none of the light functions work on the Curt trailer wiring connector part # C56434 that you referenced the first thing I would check is the fuse in the red fuse holder since that controls power to all of the functions. Next I would check to make sure all of the connections are seated properly in case somehow they came loose.

  • Troubleshooting Running Lights Not Working 2024 Toyota RAV4 After Curt Trailer Wiring Harness
    The Curt trailer wiring harness part # C56434 shouldn't have anything to do with the lane tracing assist of your 2024 Toyota RAV4 but I would first try removing the harness to see if the problem persists or not. If so it's not related to the harness and if so it is somehow related. I would recommend in that case trying to install it again as hopefully the problem was a connector just not seated properly. If the problem comes back after the install then it's the harness and it should be returned.

Otherwise a short in the trailer wiring might cause damage to the vehicle wiring.
