Watch this video and pause at 1:30. His hand is pointing at both the plug and where the connector will be taped (if equipped). Some people just remove the plug from below and can see the connector and plug in. I was able to remove my tool tray and then get my hand under the side tray to pull the connector loose from the tape that held it to the harness.

This video is for an install of an aftermarket harness in a RX that is not pre-wired but it shows where the factory wiring would be if equipped.

Perchance, could someone take the time to post a picture of a hitch installed on you RX400h? Having a 3rd party hitch installed soon and would like to see how it actually looks.

Thanks

"Mine is an 08 model though, so I don't know if your 06 would be identical. I found my connector taped up to the harness over in the left hand corner, inside.

Good luck...Randy'


I have a 2007 RX400h and my connector was on the left under the plastic bin.

I just installed my hitch. I found the connector but what is the other connector for?


Also here is a tip for a one man install.. i used a jack stand to hold up one side.

Does any one have the harness part number. i want to get a non-OEM harness ( I have the 400h with tow package) and It looks like it is just wires with the connector at the end. I don't want to pay $50 for it. I do not want to install the T-connector since i already have a connector.( I think the second link is mislabeled t connector)

The sites say this do not fit but it looks like it my. Any thoughts.

Default 2008 RX400h Trailer wiring parts

I spent many hours trying to find the correct trailer light wiring for my Lexus. It's a Toyota part. 08942-48870-BB. You can get this at either your Toyota dealer or Lexus dealer. If you have a fuse in your fuse box labeled towing, you'll find a female socket in the drivers side rear cargo area tail light wiring harness. Simply plug 08942-48870-BB into it. I first purchased an aftermarket kit. Way overkill!
