This custom-fit T-connector plugs into your Chrysler Town and Country's wiring harness, which is located behind the driver's-side and passenger's-side tail lights. You will have to remove the tail light assemblies to access this harness. Once you've plugged in the T-connector, run the hot lead up to your car battery. Connect the lead to the included fuse holder, and then connect the fuse holder to the positive terminal on your battery.

Once installation is complete, the 4-way connector will be stowed beneath your Chrysler Town and Country, near the trailer hitch. A mounting bracket (sold separately) is recommended to keep the connector secure.

It is recommended that you use a small amount of grease on all electrical connections - the plugs on your automobile and the 4-pole connector itself - to help prevent corrosion.

Powered Tail Light Converter with Surface-Mount Technology

A tail light converter is built into this T-connector. This converter is a circuit-protected, battery-powered unit that bypasses the electrical routes that are used by a basic wiring harness. As a result, there is virtually no draw on your tail light circuits.

Because most trailers run on a two-wire system - wherein the brake and turn signals are carried on one wire - the separate brake and turn signals from your Chrysler Town and Country's three-wire system need to be combined so they are compatible with the wiring system of the trailer. This converter combines the brake and turn signal functions of your automobile so that they run on one wire to properly activate your trailer's tail lights. Note: This will not affect how the tail lights on your Chrysler Town and Country operate.

Curt builds each tail light converter using surface-mount technology (SMT). This method of construction involves soldering electronic components directly to the surface of a printed circuit board. SMT eliminates the need for leads, which are used in older through-hole technology. The result is a circuit board that is smaller yet provides more routing area and that offers superior performance, reliability and durability.

Curt SMT Circuit Boards

Circuit boards constructed using SMT have been shown to perform better under rough conditions with excessive vibration than those made using the through-hole method. And where would vibration be more likely to occur than in towing applications? Curt converters also produce less heat, leading to increased durability and longer life. In addition, lower levels of resistance ensure better performance, especially for parts that operate at higher frequencies.

Each Curt circuit board is made using high-quality components that are pieced together in the most technologically savvy fashion, leading to greater predictability and reliability in functioning.

Video Transcript for Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring C56162 Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at part number C56162. This is the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with a 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector. This harness fits certain years and models of the Dodge Caliber, the Dodge Grand Caravan, the Dodge Durango, the Jeep Patriot, and the Chrysler Town and Country. It's going to provide your 4-way flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights. It is compatible with 5-pole, 6-pole, and 7-pole adapters. Those items are sold separately.

The benefit of a system like this is that it connects quickly and easily. All you have to do is locate the connection points behind your taillights at the rear of the vehicle, plug in the T-connectors, 1 on each side, and then run your hot lead to the vehicle battery. Your hot lead is the black wire coming out of the converter box. You're going to connect it with this black wire right here and that's going to give you plenty of wire that you need to run it up to the vehicle battery. It's going to include a taillight converter. That's the black box.

This is going to ensure that your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailer's. It's going to attach to a nice, clean surface using the provided double-sided adhesive tape. The powered module is going to connect directly to the vehicle battery through the wiring and that's going to help avoid overloading the vehicle's electrical system. It's constructed using surface-mount technology for consistent, reliable performance. That's going to maximize the trailer light yield and intensity while producing minimal heat and it's going to ensure superior operation even in rough road conditions. It's going to come with a dust cap for the 4-way flat connector so that way you can protect the connection points when your connector's not being used.

The product's made in the USA. When it comes to your maximum amperage for the stop and turn light, we're looking at 5 amps per circuit. For the taillights, we're looking at 5 amps per circuit. Very simple installation. It's going to come with some nice, detailed instructions that's going to walk you through the installation process step by step. It's going to come with the fuse holder as well as all the necessary butt connectors, ring terminals, you're going to get a self tapping screw, that's going to be for your ground connection right here, white wire with a ring terminal already attached to it, you're going to get the included fuse as well as zip ties.

Zip ties are going to help clean up your installation. It's going to secure any excess or slack wiring that you may have once your installation's complete. The custom fit T-connector is going to plug into your vehicle's wiring harness that's going to be located behind the driver side and passenger taillights. The side or the connector with the yellow wire goes on the driver side, the side with the green wire runs over the passenger side. That's why you have some extra green wiring right there. Then again, your white wire has a ring terminal attached to it. That's going to be your ground connection with the self tapping screw. Black wire gets connected to this black wire with a butt connector, then one end of the fuse holder gets connected to the black wire with a butt connector. The other end is going to get connected to the positive post on the vehicle battery with the included ring terminal. It's always recommended that you use a small amount of grease on all electrical connections like the plugs on your vehicle and the 4-pole connector itself. That's going to help prevent corrosion. That's going to do it for today's review of part number C56162. This is the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness. .

This harness is very easy to hook up to the tail lights, install takes a bit of effort. You will have to partially remove the interior panels on the driver side from the rear all the way up to the dashboard if you want to conceal the 12 volt wire that is needed to power the converter for this harness. I have a 2012 Jeep Patriot and I could not find a good way to pass the power wire thru the firewall without drilling. So what I did was run the wire up to the bottom of the dashboard and put an insulated FEMALE* connector on it, so when I need trailer lights I simply connect a long jumper (with insulated MALE* connectors on both ends of jumper) and run it thru the door, behind the fender up into the hood. It's good to install the fuse holder to the positive battery cable and put insulated FEMALE* connector on it as well for easy connection of the jumper. When I'm not using the trailer lights, I remove the jumper and the 10 amp fuse under the hood, the wire under the dash stays hidden out of sight. ;') *Connectors=Male/Female Disconnect Pairs were used. This method of install worked great for me and was not hard to complete, just thought I would share. Thanks eTrailer for making towing easy. 62009

This is a good product. It was easy to install. Didn't need to splice any wires; the wires provided were just the right length. For me, since I do electrical work all the time, the instructions were pretty straight forward, but for someone who hasn't worked with this stuff before, the instructions could be more detailed and step by step. Even though I cleaned both the black box and the surface on the frame, the adhesive pad did not hold up. I recommend using some high strength duct tape if you are mounting it under the bumper, not near any hot/moving components. Other than those things I would rate this product as excellent. Additionally's customer support is phenomenal, so if you do have trouble understanding the instructions, rest assured you can get it cleared up by them. Over all it has been a good experience. 115801

I am very pleased with this product and the relatively easy installation. The online video for installation on a 2008 Chrysler Town & Country was a great help since I was installing on my 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan. The only difficult task I encountered was running the hot wire to the battery in the engine compartment, which took me over an hour. I chose to run this wire under the vehicle as shown in the video, first going up and over the rear suspension and then following the brake lines. Since the wire is exposed to the elements and is always "hot", I recommend using some plastic tubing to protect it, which I didn't think of until after I had it routed. I am now going to go back and redo it with the tubing. I would like to see that recommendation included in the instructions when routing this wire under the vehicle. 202432

Everything worked as advertised. Instructions were clear. Video was helpful. Installation was straightforward. Green wire to right side taillight could have been a few inches longer. 144932

Good idea in lessening the electric load from the trailer. Wiring harness fits really tight and could use a couple inches in places. 115268

This pigtail is an easy install in the back end. However, not by any fault of the harness manufacturer, the power wire is a tough one to run. The vehicle construction made it a task to tuck/hide and strap the wire. I was adement to secure the wire so it wasn't exposed to exterior impact. The rear was about half an hour. Power wire was over 2 hrs by myself. Probably an hour to 1.5 hrs with help. 30 minutes if you don't care if it's exposed. This was in a 2013 4x4 Jeep Patriot. Lots of hot and moving parts under there. 84547

by: Don03/23/2015

Good product, works fine and installation is easy. The instructions are great and the installation video on e-trailer is a big plus. The only difference I had is I was unable to run the trailer connector inside the vehicle. I either didn't have of couldn't find the hole. I ran the wire and connector underneath the bumper cover. I like this better anyway because now I don't have to run the wire and connector out of the cargo compartment and close the tailgate on it. 180294

The shipping was fast and came packaged safe and secure. The product is exactly as it was shown online. I have yet to instal on my car but I have been very pleased with how easy, cheap and helpful etrailer has been during this process. I am not as familiar with these parts and etrailers installation videos and easy purchase process has only helped back up a great product. 189304

by: Scott S.01/05/2014

Worked well. Took a little time. The right side wire was about a foot short so I had to splice in a piece. Also to di it right you have to cut the wires and splice them because their is no way to get the connectors fished up to the tail lights through the tiny holes. Could just be my type of vehicle that made it a pain. 111945

by: Chet B05/01/2014

All products received in a timely manner, but multiple products shipped in same box and box was received very damaged. Products in the box were all OK but the trailer hitch really tore up the shipping box - was worried the busted open box would lose other products in the box. Alls well that ends well. 128405

Sorry about the delay, but I was busy working at my campsite. I hooked the T-connection on Friday the 23th and everything is working. Very easy, but I took my time with the routing of the wiring and it took around two hours(I just finished working nightwork). 132952

There is a powered converter harness available as well for your vehicle (part # C56162), that would provide your vehicle with more circuit protection, but it is not required that you use this harness.

  • Troubleshooting Converter Box of Trailer Wiring Harness on 2014 Jeep Patriot
  • You shouldn't be seeing voltage output unless one of the taillight functions is activated. The fact that you're seeing output, is a dead giveaway that the 12-volt battery feed circuit has internally shorted to the output circuits. This is usually caused by a short circuit in the trailer wiring. The converter is designed to isolate the vehicle wiring from any shorts, so the relatively inexpensive converter gets damaged rather than the more expensive to repair vehicle wiring. You would...

  • Right Turn Signal Activates Left Turn Signal on a Trailer Towed by a 2008 Chrysler Town and Country
  • Both turn signals from the trailer go to the yellow wire? If this is the case then you have identified the problem. Something is mis-wired and we need to correct the issue. On the vehicle side the green wire that plugs in line with the tail light wiring is the right turn signal and brake light. If you test the 4-Way with a circuit tester like # 3808 if needed, the pin at the green wire should have right turn and brake functions. If it does not then test the wires leading into the converter....

  • Can Wiring Harness C56150 Work On 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan
  • I checked with my resources and found that the Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, part # C56150, is not a fit for your 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan. The connectors on the harness coming from the converter are different from the connectors on the C56162, and not a match for the factory connectors on the 2010 Grand Caravan. I have attached a couple of photos that show the difference between the connectors on these harnesses.

  • Trailer Lights Work for a While then Stop Using Trailer Wiring Harness on a 2012 Jeep Patriot
  • There are a couple of things that could be causing the problem you are having with trailer wiring on your 2012 Jeep Patriot. First, if the trailer has a lot of lights then it is possible that they draw more power than the harness and/or the vehicle is rated for. A dirty or corroded trailer connector could be causing a short and that could cause this problem as well. If the right light is the only one that comes on, but it stays on, that to me sounds like a short and/or possible ground...

  • Why is Battery Connection Required to Install Trailer Wiring Harness on 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan
  • On your 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan a powered wiring harness is needed to take the amperage draw off of the vehicle's sensitive wiring. The powered harnesses that connect to the vehicle battery use the battery to power the trailer lights. Curt powered harnesses do tend to put constant power on at least 1 circuit even with the vehicle off. this usually isn't an issue unless something is plugged into the 4-Way and drawing power. Since the Curt harnesses are not working for you I recommend...

  • Troubleshooting Curt Wiring Harness # C56162 in 2008 Chrysler Town and Country
  • Thank you for your recent wiring harness purchase from etrailer. This harness is a plug-and-play type that uses connectors, rather than all separate wires that need to be spliced, for most of its connections to your Town and Country's wiring. The plugs with the yellow wires connect at the driver's-side tail light and those with the green wire connect at the passenger-side. The most common cause for the issue you describe is a simple one: a weak or marginal ground connection on the...

  • Parts Needed to Install a Brake Controller in a 2013 Dodge Durango
  • I am not sure what your dealer was thinking, but if you have a factory 7-way at the rear of your 2013 Dodge Durango all you would need to install a brake controller in your vehicle would be the proper harness. For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part # 90885. This is our best selling brake controller because of how well it works and how easy it is to setup. For an install harness you would just need the Brake Controller harness part # 3045-P. This...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2010 Chrysler Town and Country Minivan
  • Your 2010 Chrysler Town and Country minivan can be equipped with either a 1-1/4-inch Class II or a 2-inch Class III trailer hitch. All options are shown on the link provided. I suggest the Class III hitch # 13364 from Curt; this is the most popular hitch for your vehicle. This 2-inch hitch will offer better compatibility with a broad range of hitch mount accessories like cargo carriers and bike racks, and if you will be towing it will provide higher capacity than the Class II hitches....

  • Troubleshooting Curt-T-Connector On 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan
  • When testing the wire harness on your 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan, you should only see power on the harness when the converter receives a signal from the tail lights. If you have power all the time then that would indicate a short or a bad connection. You want to make sure the black wire with the fuse holder and fuse is connected to the positive post on your battery. Make sure the white ground wire has been secured to a clean bare metal surface. After you have checked all of the connections...

  • Why Would LED Trailer Taillights Partially Illuminate When Vehicle is Off
  • Sounds like your customer has LED trailer taillights. LED's only take a very small amount of voltage to partially illuminate and that is exactly what is going on with your customer's trailer. Because the pins of the 4-way on the part # C56162 will put out a tiny amount of voltage at all times the LED taillights will partially illuminate like what you described. There's nothing wrong with the setup, but if you want the lights to stay off you would need to unplug the trailer connector.

  • Does 2013 Jeep Patriot Computer have to be Reprogrammed to Install Trailer Wiring Harness
  • You should not have to reprogram the computer on your 2013 Jeep Patriot to install a trailer wiring harness such as # C56162. If you want to, you could disconnect the negative battery cable before installing the harness but consult the vehicle owners manual before doing so.
