4-Pole Trailer Wiring Harness for 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan  


Im trying to locate a Reese or Tow Rite adaptor # 118384 for use with a 2014 VW Tiguan. It came pre-wired and Im looking for a 4 flat connector.


Helpful Expert Reply:

The TowReady T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118384 that you referenced is not a fit for the 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan. This 4-pole harness uses a standardized round U.S. Car Connector to plug in to the vehicle wiring and your Tiguan does not use this type of connector.

Currently there is one confirmed fit for a 4-pole trailer wiring harness for your vehicle and it is a hard-wired type converter, part # 118675 from Tekonsha. This kit installs at the tail light assemblies and just requires you to run a 12V power wire up to the engine compartment for connection to the battery.

I have linked the written instructions as well as an install video showing use in a Tiguan. I also linked an article with tips in case you run into any issues after installation.
