Review of Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring C56272


Today we are going to review Part #C56272. This is the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with the 4-way flat trailer connector. This part is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the Ford Edge vehicle starting in 2015. On any custom fit part what I do recommend is to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show you if this will work for your application. This part will provide a 4-way flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal light. Does connect quickly and easily.

It uses these plug in T-Connector's and usually you plug these in right behind the tail lights at the rear of the vehicle. What you'll have to do is this is a power converter so you'll take this black wire and run it to the car battery to supply the power. Now, in a minute here, I'm gonna show you how to go . how this all connects . how this all will connect to your vehicle. Now, this converter here is a power tail light converter.

Again, I mentioned, it connects directly to your battery. The reason they do this is to avoid overloading your vehicle's electrical system. This converter here is constructed using SMT technology which is Surface Mount Technology. This will give you consistent reliable performance. It will maximum your trailer light yield and intensity while producing minimal heat and, it does ensure superior operation in any rough road conditions. Also, all these parts here on the table are included.

It does come with this nice dust cap that you can use on you 4-way. In other words, if you just put this . snap this on over the 4-way and then, when you're not plugged into the trailer what you can do is put the dust cap over those terminals and that'll protect those terminals from any damage or from the elements themselves. This part was made in the USA. Now, a few specs on this wiring harness. The maximum amp reach for the stop and turn light circuit it'll handle is 3 amps per circuit.

On the tail lights it's 6 amps. Basically, when you go to install this it does come with a nice set of detailed instructions here that'll tell you where to make your connections and it even shows good pictures of where the connections are to be made. What you'll do is go to the rear of your vehicle to the rear of your cargo area and again, these connection points will be behind the rear tail light. What'll happen is you'll go ahead and we'll start on the driver's side. You'll take the T-Connector which has the yellow wire in it and this you'll unplug the . behind the tail lights and then plug this into the . in between those connection points. Then what you'll do is go to the passenger side. This is the T-Connector with the green wire. It's got a longer length of wire to run over to your passenger side. Same way, unplug the connection behind your tail lights, plug this in between those connection points. Then what'll you do is you'll have this white wire with the eyelet on it. This you want to make sure you connect to a good, clean ground. If there isn't one to connect to, they do include this grounding screw that you can drill a hole and make your own ground. Then, this length of bonded wire right here with the 4-way on it this is for running out the back to connect to your trailer. Then what you want to do is they include this double-faced tape that you can put on the bottom of your converter. You want to attach this down so it doesn't move around. Then your last connection is this power wire, I mentioned. This needs to be run to the front of your vehicle to connect to the positive post of your car's battery. What you'll do is they include this 20 feet length of extra wire to make that connection. What you'll do is take one of these butt connectors, put it on that power wire, put it on one end of this wire, then run this wire all the way to the front. Then, they include some cable ties to take up any of this wire that might be hanging down. With the other end that you run to the front before you connect it to the battery you're gonna run it . want to run it through this inline fuse holder. Take your other butt connector, connect it to one side of the inline fuse holder, and then on your other side of the fuse holder you'll connect this eyelet connector and this is what'll connect to the positive post of your vehicle's battery. With that all connected all you'll have to do is take the included 10 amp fuse, put it into the fuse holder and then put the cap back on it. Your wiring harness should be all ready to go. What you can do is go to the back where your 4-way is go ahead and plug in your trailer and you should be able to have lights on your trailer now. That should do it for the review on part number C526272. This is the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with the 4-way flat trailer connector. .
