Hopkins 48925 Tail Light Converter with 4 Wire Flat Extension

Many of today's tow vehicles are equipped with separate brake lights and turn signals, however, the trailers we tow still use the combined taillight for brake and turn. The 48925 taillight converter is designed to combine the independent vehicle brake light and turn signal and combine them for the common-bulb trailer lights. Includes a built-in 4 flat connector.

Features

  • 72 inch length
  • Electronic Taillight Converter adapts tow vehicles taillight system to the trailer's
  • Powers up to 2.1 amps per output
  • Double-molded weatherproof design, includes dust cover
  • Converter mount's in trunk out of harm's way
  • Includes splices and terminal grease

I was originally looking for a plug and play kit for my car. I have a 2002 Toyota Solara, but couldn''t find one so I settled for this set. Item came on time from Amazon, like always. The package and contents are of good quality which is what I expected from Hopkins. I have used them before for my other cars.

I would have given it 5 stars if it wasn''t for the fact that it didn''t come with any wire taps. Since you will need to tap these wire into your existing wire harness It would have been nice to include it. But it didn''t so I am deducting one star just for the fact that I had to run out to get these. All you need to do is include 4 of them and would have made this a prefect product out of the box.

I have attached pics of what taps I used and also how my install was done on a 02 Toyota Solara.
Wire diagrams was easy to figure out with a simple blub tester.

For 2002 Toyota Solara
Factory Harness (left side)
Green/Red = Brake
Green/Black = Turn Signal (left side)
Green/Yellow - Running lights or Parking lights
White/Black = Ground

Right Side
Green/yellow = Right Turn Signal

If you follow the wire coordination from hopkins and match them up to my wire diagram you should be able to get this one in less than 5 mins.
Of course, be sure to check your car''s diagram to determine your wire scheme. This is specifically for a 02 Toyota Solara.

I have a 2004 GMC 1500 the rear tail lights have amber turn signals and red brake lights. great if you want to wire your 3rd brake light for the topper off the rear brake lights but complicates flat 4 wiring for trailers having an independent brake and turn. the WT (work truck) model I have has no plug in wiring harness for trailer lighting in the junction box at the rear of the truck. the answer was to wire this into the tail lights there is plenty of room for it in the Drivers side tail light recess and the green wire can cross over under the bumper to the passenger side . if you bring the flat 4 up inside the bed under the topper it doesn''t get all corroded in the winter like they do if left out to the salt. I turn on the directional , make sure I am on the bulb for it then clip the colored wire the light stops letting you know you have the right wire , strip both sides and the wire for the converter twist , solder and tape ,repeat for each left , right , brake and running.

First of all, if I had read the questions and answers above, I would have seen that the manufacturer recommends a powered converter for my car, Likely because of the issue I discovered. I am using it on a 2004 Vibe and it works, but it causes my cruise control to disconnect every time the turn signal is activated. I expect it would act the same on the sister cars to the Vibe: Toyota Matrix and Toyota Corolla.

I purchased it to replace a defective plug and play unit. Because I previously had a plug and play unit, I had the connectors to tap into the factory wiring. Otherwise I would have had to use splices and modify my factory wiring. Since I was replacing a defective unit, I just cut the wires on the defective unit and crimped on a 6 pin Deutsch connector also purchased on Amazon. Since I tow rarely, I just disconnect this Deutsch connector whenever I am not towing.

This product works as it says, however it is important to understand it''s limitations. As has been previously mentioned, it will disconnect your cruise control when you signal, if it uses the brake lights to detect braking. Also it is important to note, it will not function if either brake or turn signal line is not connected. For each side turn signal, it is a single relay, with the coil between the brake and turn signal, and diodes to feed power to the input of the relay. If either brake or turn signal is on, the coil is activated by backfeed (high resistance, so the light won''t activate) down the other wire. As someone else noted, put a quick disconnect between the brake light wire and the control box to turn the unit off when not in use and your cruise will operate normally. This backfeed requirement should be documented in the box.

The thing itself works fine - easy to attach and check; directions are simple; DIY for 2003 Montero Sport is online. The only problem is the green wire - the only wire - that has to stretch all the way over to the passenger side light housing could be at least 6" longer. Having some extra length at the 3 driver''s side (brown, yellow and red) would also help hide the chunky black housing where it''s not so exposed. I realize that this harness is generic, but my M/S isn''t larger than any other vehicle. Having 6"-12" more wire length would cost them nothing, and provide for a far easier (and better-hidden) installation. I made it work without adding length to the green wire (because I had no choice at the time) but any installer should keep this possibility in mind.

I bought this to plug into my 2017 Chrysler minivan. Previous was a $70 Curt brand that lasted a year before dying (was the box). I hooked this one up and all lights to my trailer came on for an instant and went off except for the drivers side tail light. I bought a $60 nicer harness from E-trailer (not a Curt) and installed it the exact same way grounding it to the exact same spot as this Hopkins and it works flawlessly. My trailer is a Venture 2200 with a 17'' boat.

Best Solution For VW Vanagon Camper Trailer Light Wiring

This worked like a charm.
Changed a VW Vanagon Camper from a 5 wire to a 4 wire connection.
This coincided with a complete rewire on a boat trailer.
I can now tow my driftboat with my Vanagon Camper Van on camping/fishing trips.
