Recommended Trailer Wiring Harness for 2017 Chevy Bolt


I am looking for a trailer wiring kit for my 2017 Chevy Bolt. You have two kits that say they are compatible, 119147KIT and C59236. I cant figure out why I would want one over the other? In addition, one challenge with the Chevy Bolt is that the taillights are actually in the the trunk lid itself, so it will be a challenge to locate the wires for splicing into! If you have any advice on that, please let me know. Thanks!


Expert Reply:

The wiring harnesses are basically the similar harness from different manufacturers. I personally recommend the Upgraded Modulite Vehicle Wiring Harness Kit with 4 Pole Trailer Connector (Includes Install Kit) # 119147KIT over the Curt # C59236 because it comes with the circuit tester to help you find the wire functions prior to your trunk lid. I've attached a video of the installation on a 2012 Chevy Volt which has the similar light location so you can see how that may translate to your Bolt installation. Use the circuit tester to determine functions before using the quick splice connectors on the wires.
