Wire harness for trailer - August 19, 2010, 06:47 AM

I need to rent a trailer saturday to move some furnature from frederick down to alexandria. I cannot find the wire harness for the trailer lights for my xterra anywhere and i know last time i rented a trailer they would not let me take it without checking to see if the lights worked. i check advanced auto but all they had were the kind you have to splice into your main harness. anyone know where i could find a direct plug-in one at locally? thanks

direct plug in?

When I wired my truck, I had to splice into the harness, it was pretty straight forward, got the harness at Napa Autoparts in Herndon

I assumed he meant a converter. 6 wire to 4 wire type thing.

Oh okay, then yeah, you don't need to splice into anything I guess, just a plug and play type thing

yea im looking for something simple like this:


Left end plugs directly into the connector at the rear of the truck near the hitch, right end goes to the trailer. I could get a universal one and splice it but I'd rather get something simple if I can find it.

I see what you mean, hit up Napa Auto if you haven't done so already, not sure where the nearest one to you is (hit up google), but there is one in Herndon Napa Auto Parts - Google Maps

They might have what you need

splice the wires or go to the dealer to get that wire kit. parts stores have wire kits for mainly domestic vehicles and they probably could order one.

Ahh, you need the OEM harness? Check with some dealers. You might have a hard time finding it at an auto parts place as they are not going to stock something like that for a ton of different vehicles. So you have a hitch, but no wiring harness at all right now?

Yep. Im going to call napa at lunch and see if they have any in stock. I tried a local nissan dealer yesturday and they told me they dont stock or carry anything like that, which I find hard to believe. I might call them again today and see if a different parts guy is working. had the hitch since I've owned the truck, just don't have the harness for the lights. all that's there right now is the connector from the main vehicle wire harness thats attched near the frame by the rear passenger wheel well.

You could also call some of the truck specialty places and trailer places. They might have them. If you had started looking earlier, you could have ordered it easy from Etrailer.com. They usually ship the same day, and they have a warehouse in Chesapeake, so you could call them and ask about getting it shipped out today from there, and I bet you would have it tomorrow.

RV places are good too.

Reines or Restless Wheels in Manassas usually have a good stock.
