Well actually, I'm looking for a converter/adapter for a 2001 Acura TL, but I
figure the Accord is pretty much the same thing.
Below is my original post to alt.autos.acura. No one responded.
Since then, I had U-Haul put the hitch on the car and they said the adapter is a
dealership-only part. I went to another Acura
dealership with the manual in hand and the guys at the part counter researched
it and called me back. They said that they called
Honda and this was not available at this time.
Like I said, I figure that the Accord and possible all Honda vehicles (cars,
trucks, SUV's, vans) use the same plug, maybe even the
most recent model years (not just the range of years that 2001 falls into).
I'm going to go check out the Honda dealerships soon. But if anyone has any
information they can provide, it would be greatly
Thanks in advance,
In my manual, it says that there is a plug by the left tail light for trailer
lights. I tore my trunk apart last night and found
it. The manual also says that you can buy a "converter" (adapter) from the
dealership. When I went into the parts dept. of one
dealership, he didn't bother to check into it and said that the shop installing
the hitch would probably have it. I forgot to
mention to him that the manual tells me to get it from the dealership.
Is this something that the hitch place (U-Haul, etc) or an autoparts store would
carry or is this a dealership only part? If anyone
knows the specific part number, please send it.
I'll go check out another dealership later and bring my manual in with me.
Thanks for any help anyone can provide,
