Video Transcript for Roadmaster Tail Light Wiring Kit Installation - 1998 Jeep Wrangler

Rate your transcript OrderClientKevin BrossRef #20495Order #TC0639199068 Today on our 1998 Jeep Wrangler, we'll be installing the Road Master Taillight Wiring Kit with bulbs, part number RM-155. To being with, we're going to go ahead and open up the hood of the vehicle. We're going to cut one end of the four flat off. We will not need this in this application. Next we're going to route our wire through the grill and through the engine compartment. It's a good idea to keep a couple extra feet up near the front of the vehicle in case if you have to replace a plug or move the location where your plug may attach to your vehicle.

Next we'll take the long strand of wire that comes with the kit, that has two ends of the four flat on it. The shorter wire is for jumping between your tow vehicle and your towed vehicle. In this case, we're going to route it behind the grill and then route it up into the engine compartment, following along some factory wires. We'll use some zip ties along the way to help secure it. Now when routing your wire, make sure you stay away from any moving parts, parts that may become hot, or sharp edges. Now that we've got our wire routed through the engine compartment, we'll fish it down towards the underside of the vehicle up near the firewall.

Now we'll go underneath the vehicle and route the wire back to the back end. We're going to end up back near the driver's side taillight at the rear of the vehicle. Again, we'll use some zip ties along the way to help secure it. Now that we're at the rear of the vehicle, we need to pull the plastic section of mud flap or under-body carriage that protects the wiring for both the taillights. We will not be tying into any of the factory wiring, but our wires from the bulb kit will actually be coming out right next to where our factory wiring is already at. Now that we've got our wires run to the back of the vehicle, we're going to strip the wire and we're going to keep the green wire solid and cut off the excess brown, white, and yellow wire.

The yellow wire will stay over at the driver's side. This will be the turn and brake signal for this side. We're going to need to make a jumper wire for the white and brown, so what we'll do is we'll use the excess wire and put it with our green wire that runs over to the passenger side. When routing this, we went ahead and used about five or six feet of half inch wire loom, which you can purchase by the foot, and it's part number 459075-1. Now on the driver's side, that should leave us the yellow, a brown, a white. The extra jumper wire that we carried over on the passenger side now, we should have a brown, a green and a white wire.

You'll also have the jumper wire over on the driver's side coming from the passenger that will be the excess brown and white wire that we ran over. This is how we'll tie our passenger and driver's side lighting together for the running as well as the ground. Now we'll take the covers off the taillight assemblies. We need to choose a location that we can drill a one inch hole so we can insert our bulb. Before drilling your one inch hole, you want to make sure that there's nothing behind it that can be damaged and you also want to put a pilot hole to check to make sure everything will clear. With our pilot hole drilled, we'll use the one inch hole saw. Now that we have our hole drilled, we'll remove the three bolts that hold the light assembly to the body. With this off, we need to take the light assembly and we'll need to bend the tabs out just a little bit so that we get a nice snug fit into the back of the light. A quick tech tip, it's a good idea when messing with any of the light sockets to take the bulb out so you do not damage the bulb. Now that we have our tabs bent out on the light socket and it fits firmly into place, before we put it in, we're going to strip a little wire off of each of the brown, the red and the black wire. Now that we have the light socket pushed into the back of the light assembly, we're going to use a little bit of silicone gasket maker to help seal it off and make sure no water gets into it. This is part number LT37467. We'll feed the three wires from the light socket through the hole that we drilled in the body and put the whole light assembly back on the body by putting the three screws that we removed earlier back on. We'll repeat the same process over here on the passenger side. With both of our light sockets installed in the light assemblies, now we're ready to do the wiring. Over here on the passenger side, we'll connect the green wire with the red wire using a butt connector, the black wire with the white wire using a butt connector, and the brown wire with the brown. Once these connections are made, we'll tape them up with some electrical tape. We'll also use a couple zip ties to help secure the wire. With that done, we can put the under-body panel back up into place and put the push pin fastener back in. Now we'll move over here to the driver's side. We'll connect three white wires, in this case we had to take an extra piece of the white wire that we had already cut off, as we'll need to use this as our ground wire. On this side, since we brought a jumper over from the passenger side, we're going to connect two of the brown wires together so we'll use the larger butt connectors, which are yellow in this case. For our yellow wire, we'll strip that back and put a butt connector on it as well. We'll make the connections with the back of the light socket. On this case, the yellow will go with the red, the brown will go with the brown and the white will go with the black. With all these connections made, we'll put some electrical tape on them as well. For the white wire that we brought down for our ground, we'll put a ring terminal on this one. We'll put some electrical tape on them as well. Now that we've got that done, we can put the under-body panel back up into place and put the push pin fastener back in as well. We're going to use the ground wire and use a self tamping screw and connect it to the frame of the vehicle. Now that our ground wire is in place, we're ready to test out our function of our lights. As you can see here, the running lights as well as the brake and turn are all working fine. Back on the front of our vehicle, we'll do a test as well as securing the four flat up into the grill area. As you can see here, if you use the jumper wire that comes with the kit to go from your towed vehicle to your tow vehicle, you just connect the four flat and then you connect to the back of your tow vehicle. When not in use, you can connect it back into the grill area. In this case, we just use a simple zip tie. Like I said earlier, it's a good idea to keep a couple extra feet of wire up behind the grill here, or up in the engine compartment area in case you ever need to replace this plug on the end. That will conclude the installation of our Road Master Taillight Wiring Kit with bulbs, part number RM-155 on our 1998 Jeep Wrangler. .

Found this item was wired with the brake lights for the brown wires and turn/running lights for colored wires and this fact kept me from getting this done very rapidly. Once identified, went together really nicely and actually grounded to frame for higher light output. I upgraded 3 wire into 2 wire converter with "Roadmaster Brite-lite 3 to 2 Wiring Converter" and they are as bright as the lights already in the housing. Except for that wiring issue, it would have been excellent. As to performance after install, great. Customer service was nice from Roadmaster as well. Did receive a call back message from etrailer a couple days later. 86819

Continues to work as it should! Very pleased with end product after installation by myself and continue to be happy every time I hook up since! Nice item! And customer service...Well they checked back with me a year later to see if I needed anything. How is that for the best customer service around! A

Great idea. After years of towing with magnetic lights now all I have to do is plug it in, and I'm done. The kit kit comes with more parts and wire than I needed and was simple to install on my 2010 JK. 81930

Overall, pretty happy with this product. I found the quality of the product to be very good. I was lucky in that I own the same year and model car as in the installation video on the etrailer.com website, so following along was fairly easy. It took my 15 year old son and I about 2 hours to install. Most of that was trying to run the cable underneath the car, which is very low to the ground even when jacked up. I would have preferred to run the cable through the interior, but was not able to locate an adequate entry point into the cabin. Overall, installation is pretty straight forward. It might be more difficult for vehicles who's entire light fixture can not be removed. The product works great and as expected. 160603

I knew I didn't want to deal with magnetic lights for towing my Jeep behind the RV so I purchased this Roadmaster kit. I was a little apprehensive since I have virtually no knowledge with electricity. However, installation of this kit on my 2002 Jeep Wrangler was a breeze! It took me (by myself) about 3 hours of working slowly (to make sure I wasn't cutting the wrong wire!) and frequently checking the installation video on this website. The most difficult thing included in the installation is to make two holes to fit the bulbs; for this you'll need to probably go out and buy a hole saw from HD or Lowe's. Great product, easy installation! 162459

I purchased a rm-155 wire and bulb set-up to install in my 2015 jeep rubicon unlimited hard rock. I could not get confirmation that it would fit .I took a chance and purchased it. It was a perfect fit.I ran the wires around the passenger side of the engine and thru the floor plug and followed the wire loom to the right rear and down the rubber plug following the wires to tail light.I then crossed over to the left tail light by drilling thru the foam and plastic plug at the bottom of the taillight chamber. 203535

Very simple to install. I had plenty of room for another bulb. One downside was the 1inch hole they have you drill is not large enough for the bulb to go thru so I had to ream the hole a little. 88844





Comments

I had the same problem with the 1 hole saw that I used. After measuring with a micrometer, I found that the bulb is about .975 and the hole saw was only about .955. I reamed the hole with a 1 spade bit and the bulb went right in.

It eas a bit more complicted to install than I had expected. Could benefit from a more through set of instructions. I installed the harness on a 2003 Jeep Wrangler, and had to fabricate several metal fittings due to aftermarket products previously installed on the Jeep. Overall I am satisfied with the product. 203454

Good instructions. Everything need is included for 4flat connections. One bulb socket arrived with the ground (black) wire loose in the bag. The solder joint had failed. Resoldered but had to remove the other wires and rubber insert from the bulb socket to avoid melting. Not a shining example for Roadmaster. 147006

On the 2014 jeep wrangled, the lenses are one piece sealed so there isn't a good way to drill the hole because if you make it big enough for the bulb to fit through, the socket is loose. 136722

The Adventurer tow bar you referenced is compatible with these base plates. You will also need safety cables like # BX88197. The coiled design helps...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2012 Ford F-150 Eco Boost Behind a Class A Motor Home
  • We have yet to have the opportunity to install the Roadmaster base plates, # 4431-3, on a 2012 Ford F-150, but we do have the instructions which I have linked for you. For a tow bar I recommend going with the higher capacity Blackhawk, # RM-422, rated for 10,000 pounds. Depending on how your truck is equipped, you could be close or over the 6,000 pound capacity of the other tow bar. I have included a link to the Blackhawk instructions for you. For safety cables you can go with straight...

  • Recommended Base Plates and Accessories for Flat Towing 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Behind a Motorhome
  • It looks like you're on the right track with the Roadmaster # 521440-1B, but I'd recommend the Roadmaster # RM-155 lighting kit, because it will remain completely independent of the vehicle's lighting circuits. The # TM781117 doesn't work well with all vehicles. Your BrakeMaster will work, but you'll need a seat adapter, part # RM-88287 and a # RM-751449 stoplight switch kit, which is compatible with vehicles with non-adjustable pedals only. Since your GC has a combined taillight system,...

  • To flat tow your vehicle, you will need a tow bar, base plates that install on the vehicle and provide a connection point, safety cables, a wiring solution and a supplemental braking system. The Blue Ox Aventa would be a great choice. The 360 degree swivel and self-aligning design make hitching the vehicle very easy, even on on terrain that is not pool-table flat. The 10,000 capacity of the Aventa will handle the weight of your F150 with no problem. Safety cables are included with the...

  • Wiring 2011 Jeep Wrangler for Flat Towing Behind RV
  • You will indeed need the Roadmaster Brite-Lite vehicle-to-vehicle tail light converter, part # RM-154 in order to install the Hopkins tail light isolating diode system in your Wrangler. If you take a look at the schematic I have provided, you can see how the system is wired. My research shows that the Roadmaster Tail-Light Wiring Kit with Bulb and Socket, part # RM-155 would be compatible with your Jeep, and would be much easier to install. This system uses bulbs wired directly to the...

  • Parts Needed For Flat-Towing 2015 GMC Canyon
  • I spoke with my contact at Blue Ox about your 2015 GMC Canyon. The Blue Ox Base Plates, part # BX1721 is designed to work with your Canyon if it is a 4WD. They have not done a test-fit for these base plates on a 2WD yet. The # BX1721 does come with the pins that hold the triple-lug attachment to the removable arms. If you are asking about the pin that attaches the tow bar to the base plates, they are not included with the base plates. Those pins are included with the tow bar....

  • Base Plates and Accessories Needed to Flat Tow a 2005 Honda CR-V Behind a Motor Home
  • For a 2005 Honda CR-V without a trim package on the front bumper, use XL base plates, # 1555-1. If it does have a trim package on the front bumper, use # 1555-5. The XL style base plates are compatible with the most Roadmaster tow bars past and present. The XL base plates can be installed at home if you are familiar with automotive projects and have some experience and the correct tools. Roadmaster does recommend professional installation. In addition to the base plates and the tow...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2010 Chevy Colorado Crew Cab Behind a Motor Home
  • First, you are going to want to check the owners manual on your 2010 Chevy Colorado to determine if it can be flat towed. I did some research and found that if you have a 2 wheel drive model with the 4L60E transmission, you would need a transmission lube pump kit from Remco to flat tow the truck. If you have a 2 wheel drive manual, the vehicle cannot be flat towed. And if you have a 4 wheel drive automatic or manual it is flat towable as is. Make sure to consult the owners manual to...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2011 Ford Fiesta With a 35 ft. Fleetwood Bounder Gas

  • Base Plates, Tow Bar, and Accessories to Flat Tow a 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • The Roadmaster base plates, # 920-1, will fit the 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon. But, if you have an automatic all-wheel drive model, you can only tow the vehicle on a trailer. Make sure to consult your owners manual to determine the specifics on how the vehicle should be towed. The base plates will install very similar on a 2012 as they do on a 2011. All manual transmission models can be flat towed. If you find that you can flat tow your Subaru, you will need a few more items. You will...

  • Base Plate Recommendation for Flat Towing 2014 Honda CR-V
  • The difference between the EZ4 Base Plate kit part # RM-521567-4 and the EZ5 kit # RM-521567-5 is that the EZ4 uses twist-lock drawbars while the EZ5 uses drawbars held in place by pins and doesn't require the use of a crossbar. The EZ4 and standard EZ base plate part # 521567-1 are so similar they share the same installation instructions. Typically the EZ4 brackets sit even further back than the EZ brackets for a more hidden look. For that reason I would go with the EZ4 # RM-521567-4. In...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2012 Chevrolet Sonic
  • Before you begin flat towing your new 2012 Chevrolet Sonic, you will want to verify a few things first. If your vehicle has a 1.4 Liter engine and an automatic transmission, then it cannot be flat towed and must be towed using a tow dolly, like part # RM-2000-1. If it has a 1.4L engine and a manual transmission, or has a 1.8L engine and is automatic or manual, then you can flat tow your vehicle.

  • Will The Roadmaster Base Plate Kit # 1432-1 Fit My 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4x4
  • I would first recommend checking your owners manual or with the Jeep dealer on the proper procedure for towing the vehicle. Some vehicles might need to be equipped with a transmission lube pump, an axle disconnect, drive line disconnect or free-wheeling hubs before they can be towed. As long as your Roadmaster Stowmaster 5000 Tow Bar has a crossbar that goes across from one attachment point to the other, the Roadmaster Base Plate Kit # 1432-1, will work and is a fit for your 2011 Jeep...

  • Parts Recommendation for Flat Towing a 2014 Fiat 500L

For that I would recommend the Roadmaster Base Plates # RM-522014-5. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental...
