Today is 2006 Jeep Commander. Were going to install part number RM-154 from Roadmasters. First thing were going to do is route our cable from front to rear. One end of the cable, youre just cut it off and run towards the back, and it will save the other four pole for the in front of the car. Run our wire to the back of the vehicle, now well go ahead and remove the taillights, and were going to pull wires from the bottom up. Well just kind of unclip our wire harness here and then unplug the wire harness from the light.
All right lets go over to the passenger side, repeat same process. Now well go ahead and pull back this sheet on our wires on our factory harness, and well go ahead and get ready to test our wires for our functions. First well put a ground screw into your body, because were going to need a ground screw anyway for the well take our tester who ground it to are ground screw. And then well probe the wires at the end here. First what were going to look for is our brake signal.
It looks white with the brown stripe. With that, that will also work our turn signal and brake signal when its hooked up behind the RV. So well cut that in half and turn at each end and install the diode. When we install our diode, were going to make sure the side navels out, always goes out to the taillight. And then our input will be from the wire harness and our after mark wire harness will install it.
so this circuits going to take care of our left turn signal, hand brake. And so in our harness here, that will be yellow. So well strip the wires back and run our yellow wire to the other tab. The next circuit were going to look for is our running light circuit. So it looks our running light circuit is going to be white with the purple stripe.
So add our diode to that wire. Now, our brown wire is going to be a ring-like circuit. So what were going to do is actually take a wire and fold it in half and cut it, because we need to run this wire to this taillight, and we also need to run it over to the passenger side. So, well use a buck connector mega-junction, and then add along one more piece of wire to it and run it through our diode. So we got our two in one brown wire and run up into our input on our diode. Thats it for attaching the wires to the driver side. well go ahead and cut our white wire from ground, well run that white wire to the ground screw we installed earlier. Now well take our green and brown wire, well go back down and route that over to the other side to the passenger side taillight. Were finished with the driver side, lets go ahead and reinstall the wire harness to the taillight and put it back together. On the passenger side, well be basically doing the same thing we did in driver side. First that were going to look for is our brake signal. Again, it looks white with a brown stripe. For the brake sign al on the right hand side, its also going to do our turn signal and break, and thatll be used our green wire. Click a ring-like circuit on passenger side, its going to be white with a blue stripe. And basically were going to install the diode just like we did before, and were going to run our last wire, the brown wire to that diode. Now well go ahead and reinstall our taillight, and well go ahead and zip our wires, make sure its safe, not in the way. And with that, that will finish it for our install part number RM-154 from Roadmaster.
Today on 2006 Jeep Commander, we're going to install a base plate kit from Roadmaster, product number RM-1427-1. The first thing we're going to do is go ahead and open up the hood and remove six plastic fasteners across the top and the grill. To remove the grill, we simply pull up in the center. You may pick up on the side a little bit and it unsnaps. Now, we're going to remove the four fasteners that connect the bumper, cover, to the core support. Alright, we'll remove the tubes, bolts attaching the fascia to the radiator support.
