Review of Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring C56303


Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Curt T-connector vehicle wiring harness with the 4-way flat trailer connector. Now, this is a custom-fit part. It is designed to fit the 2012 and newer Chevrolet Sonic vehicles and on a custom-fit part I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it will show you if this part will work for your application. Now, this harness provides this 4-way flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights. It is compatible with 5-pole, 6-pole and 7-pole adapters that we do sell separately on our website. This whole harness does connect very quickly and easily.

Basically you just locate your connection points which will be in the rear cargo area, plug in these T-connectors, one on each side, the driver's side and one on the passenger side, ground your white wire and then run your black power wire to your vehicle's battery.Now, this does include this tail light converter, this black box right here. This is to ensure that your vehicle's wiring will match that of your trailer. It is a powered module. That's why you'll connect directly to the battery to avoid overloading the vehicle's electrical system. This converter is constructed using SMT technology which is surface mount technology.

It gives you more consistent, reliable performance, maximize your trailer light yield and intensity while producing minimal heat. It will also ensure superior operation in a lot of rough road conditions.You'll notice on the 4-way it does come with this integrated dust cap for the 4-way. When you're not plugged into your trailer, put that over the terminal. Protects them from any damage or from the elements. This harness is made in the USA.A few specs on it.

The max on the amperage on the stop and turn light circuits is 5 amps per circuit. On the tail light circuit is 7-1/2 amps total. Now, this part comes with everything laid out here on the table. It has a real nice set of detailed instructions on how to install everything with pictures. Basically when you go to install this you'd go to the rear of the vehicle, to the rear cargo area and gain access behind the tail lights.

You want to start on the driver's side. Take the T-connector that has the yellow wire in it. Unplug the harness from your tail lights, plug this in between there. Then you'll have this white wire, this white wire with the eyelet on it. You want to connect that to a good clean ground. If there's one nearby you can use that. If not, they include a grounding screw. You can make your own ground.Then you'll take the other T-connector with the length of green wire. That goes over to the passenger's side. Run that over there, plug that in. Then what you want to do is this converter, you do want to attach this to a flat surface so it doesn't bounce around. They include a piece of double-faced tape to do that with or you could even use one of the cable ties to attach it down. There's even a little tab on it with a hole in it. You could put a screw in there to hold it if you'd like. Run this length of bonded wire with the 4-way on it out to the back towards the trailer. The remaining wire you need to connect is this black wire and that's your power wire. This is the one that will go to your vehicle's battery to the front of the vehicle. They give you this extra length of wire to do that and some connectors. So take one of your butt connectors, put it on your power wire, connect at one end of the length of wire and then run this wire all the way to the front.Once you get to the front, you don't want to connect this directly to the battery. You want to run it through the in-line fuse holder. Take your other butt connector, put it on there. Connect it to one side of the fuse hold just like that. The other side of the fuse holder, you'll take this eyelet connector, attach it and that'll connect to the battery. Once that's all done, open it up, take the included 15-amp fuse, put it right into your fuse holder. Put your cap right on there to protect it and your system would be all ready to go. They include some extra cable ties to take up any slack in the wiring but that should do it for the review on the Curt T-connector vehicle wiring harness with the 4-way flat trailer connector.
