Question about 2006 Honda CR-V
Where is the trailer lighting connector that the manual says is located behind the left side panel in the cargo area....we can't find it anywhere , the panel does not come off! Even the service techs are stumped!
You need lots of resolve:
You need to REMOVE the side panel of the cargo area. Remove the lip of the cargo area that sits under the door. Then, unscrew the grommet nut as this will catch on the side panel. Pry the lighter socket out and seperate the connection. Then, gently start pulling the side panel free (left side) from floor to window to back door.
This will expose the whole left side of the cargo are (about 6 square feet in total). Voila. Closest to the cargo door, down low, taped to the existing wiring is the plug connector for the trailer. down on the floor is a plug for the hole that you need to pull out. When you put your wiring through, connect the connector and replace all parts. As you go through the process pay special attention to the parts, there are a few places you need to remove clips that hold parts of the panel in place. Patience is key.
I'm pretty sure Honda wouldn't be happy about owners doing this under warranty...took us 1/2 hour but we are pretty handy and not afraid of the warranty...if I had to do work like this by paying somebody just to maintain the warranty, I'd be broke by now...
I'm wondering if you figured this out yet, given that your post was some time ago??
