Will the T-One Wiring Harness # 118461 Fit a Japanese Model 1999 Subaru Forester

Question:

I have a 1999 Subaru Forester. This is a non-us model with a 2.0L motor made in Japan. The connector is on the passenger side in the spare tire well. It is a 10 pin rectangular female connector using 9 of the pins. Is this the type of male connector that is supplied with the #118461 harness??

The connector on the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4 Pole Trailer Connector, item # 118461, is a 6 pin connector and most likely will not work on your vehicle if the connector is a 10 pin connector.

See if you can find a mating connector in the rear of your vehicle. Look around because the Subaru Forester connector can be in several locations like right up against the back seat or on the drivers side, passengers side or on along the back threshold of the vehicle. You may find the correct connector if the one you have already located is not the only one present or the correct mating connector.

Question:

I looked all over and the 10 pin connector is the only one. I checked the incoming wires to the connector for function. WB Brake LR Battery (always hot) LgB Right turn BG Left turn RY Tail (there are 2 of these) B Ground (there are 2 of these) LW Couldn't figure out what this is connected to. I guess I will have to go with a universal hookup and splice into the wires I need. Thanks for your quick response to my question.

I would recommend going with a powered converter, item # 119147KIT, on your vehicle. You have all of the wires needed at the10 pin connector you have found. The powered converter will protect the vehicle wiring from shorts on the trailer and will convert the separate brake signal in your 10 pin connector to work with the combined brake and turn signals on the trailer.
