Ever tried backing up in a dark parking lot or hitching up your trailer at night? Factory reverse lamps simply don’t provide enough light when function or safety is in mind. The Starkey reverse light wiring kit includes all parts necessary to wire your Truck or SUV for auxiliary lighting. Never hitch up your trailer or boat in the dark again!

This product is great if you purchased a set of reverse lamps and just need a wiring harness and switch to finish the installation. Our wiring harness utilizes Deutsch DT Series 2-pin connectors. If you need connector pigtails for any other connection type, see Starkey part number 5006. If you are looking for a complete reverse lighting kit, see Starkey part number 5201.


  • The Factory-Style switch insures you have full control over your auxiliary lighting system. The system can be activated with the switch anytime, even if the vehicle is off.
  • Makes hitching up your trailer at night easy, and increases visibility for vehicles equipped with a backup camera.
  • Auxiliary lighting assists the driver at night by illuminating the rear of the vehicle while in the reverse gear.
  • Helps your vehicle get noticed when backing out of parking spaces, onto busy streets, and other high-traffic areas.


  • The wiring harness will automatically trigger the auxiliary reverse lights when the system is activated with the included passenger compartment switch. Optionally, you can also easily configure the lights to turn on when the vehicle is placed in the reverse gear.
  • Installation requires no cutting of factory wires! In addition, the harness draws power directly from the battery to insure that no strain is placed on the factory electrical system. This independent operation insures that the lights will function with the cabin switch even if the vehicle is off.
  • A factory-style switch and all necessary wiring are included, simply add your choice of lights. Our wiring harness is designed to connect to Deutsch DT Series 2-way connectors. Pigtail connectors are available if needed (See Starkey SKU# 5006). Complete kit with lights also available – See Starkey SKU# 5201.
