Towing Requirements – Trailer Lights And Wiring

Whenever you pull a trailer, regardless of the trailer size, stop lights and turn signals on the trailer are required for motoring safety.

The Trailer Tow Package includes a seven–pin connector at the rear of the vehicle and a four-pin harness located under the rear bumper. The four-pin harness must be unclipped before use. Use a factory-approved trailer harness and connector.

The electrical connections are all complete to the vehicle but you must mate the harness to a trailer connector.
