Comparing Wiring Harnesses for a 2019 MINI Countryman S


Hi, looks like there are 3 possible harness kits that will fit my 2019 MINI Countryman S. Other thank the difference of not having to splice into wires with the ZCI kit, what are the other advantages and disadvantages of the 3 harnesses? Certainly, there is a significant difference in the pricing, but I am more concerned with the other differences. I do not plan to have the plug mounted outside the vehicle. Thanks,


Expert Reply:

The Tekonsha ZCI # 119250KIT, ModuLite # 119190KIT, and Curt # C59236 are essentially the same thing. The ZCI as you noted doesn't require splicing, and the other 2 are basically the same kind of wiring kit, just made by different manufacturers.

The Curt has slightly higher max amp ratings (7.5 for tail and 5 for stop/turn) than both Tekonsha kits (7.5 for tail and 4.2 for stop/turn), but we have found that the Tekonsha wiring harnesses tend to be the most reliable on the market.If I had to rank these good to best it would be the following:

Curt - # C59236
ModuLite - # 119190KIT
ZCI - # 119250KIT

Ultimately they will all work with your vehicle and get the job done so it just kind of boils down to how much you're willing to spend or if you have used a specific type in the past and been happy with it.
