Default 2003 Baja trailer wiring harness

Can anyone advise me how to find the supposed factory installed trailer wiring harness located somewhere near the rear end or wheel wells? I am installing a Hidden Hitch this weekend and need some help! Thanks.

Lay down on the right side of the car behind the rear tire.Find where your bumper skin ends on the side and follow the groove between the bumper end and lower panel.Follow the groove around and under the car then look up and there should be a gray connector with a dummy connector plugged in it.Very easy to see,once you find it.Good Luck It might be covered up with under coating.

Default Thanks!

I think I found it, not entirely sure though. What I think you are refering to is a plastic plug about 2" x 3/4" squarish shaped, with about 4 wires going into one end, nothing coming out the other, clamped securely to the wall of welll (not sure how to break it free). There are 6 circular indents on the face of the plug, no holes. I presume that this is a cap of some type that needs to be removed somehow. I didn't want to force anything and break it by accident if there is a simple way to do it.

IF this is indeed the end of the harness, it is around 3 feet over to the hitch. Is there some type of an extension/adapter harness I need to get?

Sorry to be so dense, the hitch went on fine though!

yes thats it,there is a harness that plugs in that with a control box for the turnsignals.You might be able to get this seperate from Subaru,this comes in the hitch kit from Subaru.There should be a lock tab on one of the sides that you press to release the lock and pull at the same time,this can be a pain in the ass to get off.

Default Wiring harness options?

OK, Subaru wants mega bucks for the harness alone. Anyone have any idea where I can find an aftermarket harness that will mate up with the pre-installed Subaru plug under the car? I hate to go the hard-wire splicing option when there is a perfectly good plug there ready to use. Thanks,

How much do want for the trailer harness? Just curious so i know how much GOLD i have hanging back there Take a look at the dummy plug and see if its a real connector,if so you might be able to add the wires to that connector and make your own.Get a aftermarket harness from an auto parts store and the same connector terminals and plug them into the connector.Good Luck
