We are going to need to get this connector and the 4-pole as well under the vehicle. If we go into where the back side of the taillight was sitting, right here on the inboard side there is a nice flat surface that we can go ahead and adhere that to. It really annoying and frustrating. Follow the wiring harness on the driver side here back. If we press that in and pull away, we can separate the two pieces. Please verify any information in question with a sales representative. With the 4-pole, we are just going to take it to the middle of the vehicle and you can either mount it with the mounting bracket or I am just going to tie it off here at the trailer hitch.
That will conclude the installation of wiring harness part number 118496 on a 2006 Toyota Tacoma. They don't make the part yet. If you look towards the midline of the connector, you can see there is a little push button right there. We will start installing it. We are going to those through that hole.

With the taillight pulled off, if you look on the backside here, you can see the main connector and that is the connector we are going to separate and plug our harness inline to. I have called the dealership and Toyota customer service and neither of them could help me. Then just go ahead and put the taillight back on, just like we did on the driver side. First go ahead and lower the tailgate.
As you can see, this one is pretty dirty so we are going to go ahead and clean that surface off first to insure that it adhere properly. And I am just going to take the excess wire and go ahead and zip-tie it to this main wire lead coming across here. With those two screws removed, we just want to take and kind of gently rock the taillight assembly back and forth. Starting over here on the driver side, if you look on the inboard side of the bed, you can see we have a screw at the top and a screw here at the bottom. The maximum you can tow depends on the total weight of your cargo, occupants and available equipment. We will stop there for a second and do the same thing with the 4-pole end. Go ahead and take our wiring harness.
Full transcript: Today on this 2006 Toyota Tacoma we are going to be installing wiring harness part number 118496. Go ahead and peel off the double sided tape. I have the same issue. They could rewire the whole truck for 900 dollar. And then with the passenger side taillight put back on, go ahead and close your tailgate and your installation will be complete.
Basically, a Toyota dealership can't install a towing package unless they come with one from the factory. I am just going to go ahead and set the taillight off to the side for a second. The one with the yellow and brown goes here with the driver side. The one with the green and red goes to the passenger side. I hope they make one soon or someone on here has a better idea! And just adhere that just like so.
You will notice on the harness we have two different sets of connectors here, one that contains the yellow and brown wires and one that contains the green and red wires. . We need to go ahead and remove those to remove the taillight. . . .
