Installing Trailer Hitch On 2021 Honda Pilot And Still Allow Tailgate Sensor Functionality


Does the rear tailgate sensor need to be moved before hitch install. Honda 2021 Honda Pilot.


Expert Reply:

By installing a hitch on the 2021 Honda Pilot, the tailgate sensor will likely be blocked. Luckily, Honda does offer an adapter kit that moves the sensor to accommodate the installation of a trailer hitch.

The Honda part number is I08L91-TG7-100C ; your local Honda dealer should be able to help source that part.

The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13146 is a great choice for your 2021 Honda Pilot. With a strong rust-resistant powder coat, the hitch will withstand the elements and always be protected. The Curt # C13146 has a weight capacity of 6000lbs and tongue weight of 900lbs, which is more than enough for the 3,500lb towing capacity of your vehicle.

You will also need a trailer wiring kit if you plan to pull a trailer. The T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118760 will work great. This will simply plug into the factory tow plug which is usually behind a panel in the trunk (driver's side). You will also have to attach one white ground wire to your vehicle. Instructions are included.

I have attached detailed installation videos for these products.
