Rain, road grime and salt can deal a vicious blow to your trailer wiring, and it takes electrical components with an extra-thick shell to stand up to the elements. This CURT powered taillight converter is an advanced taillight converter that offers the ultimate in vehicle compatibility and weather resistance, giving you a reliable wiring connection any season of the year.

The advantage of this converter is its potted construction. The potted design seals the internal electrical components in a watertight enclosure and is filled with a solid compound to protect against impacts, vibrations and moisture for long-lasting use, even on the exterior of the vehicle. The converter also features our advanced surface mount technology (SMT), using smaller components mounted directly to the surface of the circuit board. This produces lower resistance, reduced heat generation, longer life cycles and higher reliability.

This CURT taillight converter comes with pigtail wires that are able to be spliced into the three-wire vehicle wiring system and convert it to a simple two-wire system, using a standard 4-way flat output, to be compatible with most trailer wiring.

This CURT powered taillight converter is a heavy-duty electrical converter for a wide variety of vehicle applications, including certain models of Acura, Audi, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, Freightliner, Honda, Infiniti, Jaguar, Kia, Land Rover, Lexus, Lincoln, Mazda, Mercedes, Mercury, MINI, Nissan, Pontiac, Porsche, Saab, Saturn, Scion, Sterling, Subaru, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at The converter comes with color-coded wires and an easy-to-read wiring guide, as well as a dust cover to protect the 4-way flat connector. This package also includes four snap locks for faster, more secure splicing. A powered converter wiring kit #55151 is also required for installation.
