How to Install a Trailer Wiring Harness on a 2011 Kia Sorento


Today, on a 2011 Kia Sorento, were going to install part number 118506 from inaudible. First thing well do is were going to remove the two tail lights. Well remove two screws here and here. To disconnect the harness, first inaudible the right here, and pull the part. Well put those aside and repeat the same process over on the passengers side. The next thing well do is remove this plastic ring right here.

That fastener will not be reused. Well take the wire harness dropped between the body work and the body. That will be the same thing with our T-connector with the red wire. Alright. Next, were going to go ahead and test our black wire that come from the kit to our red wire here and this eventually get run to the front of the vehicle to the battery.

Then well take the black wire and do the same thing with other wires. Well inaudible through here and pull the wires down. inaudible and test the module. The module has a bracket with a threaded hole in the end and inaudible hardware into it inaudible main fasteners that allows to cool and to face you back a little bit more so you can run the module underneath. Well put the two fasteners back in, now Ill take the white wire inaudible terminal and inaudible to the body.

Now well take the wire harness, plug it into the factory wire harness, snap it together and then well go ahead and install the inaudible.Then well take the wire harness and well run it behind the support for the bumper cover then down to our hitch. With the red and green wire, were actually going to run it above the bumper bracket over to this wire thats a little bit on the short side. Then were going to run a piece of tubing and well use that to help pull the wire over the bumper bracket. Then well run it the same way to the passengers side. So when you run the wire direct to rout as possible because theres very little leftover.

Theyre going to be attached to the wire harness thats attached to the tail light. Now were going to run the black wire and roll it up to the front of the car and to the battery. Make sure it stays away from anything thats moving or anything that gets hot like the exhaust. And when you run it to the engine compartment, the same thing applies as you run it to the battery. Well run the wire to the inaudible side of the battery well be attaching it to this terminal here so well cut our wire short .
