Chrysler Town and Country Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring Questions and Answers


  • Why Do Some Vehicles Need a Converter to Add Trailer Wiring Like a 2001 Chrysler Town & Country
  • Converters are required when a vehicle has what is called a 3-wire or separate lighting system. These systems will have turn signal circuits that are separate from the brake light circuits. Trailers use a 2-wire or combined system meaning the brake lights and turn signals are on the same circuit. A converter is needed to take the separate signals from the vehicle and combine them so that the trailer lights operating on a combined system will work properly. Wires and fuses connected...

  • Hitch, Trailer Wiring and Brake Controller for Towing Pop-Up Camper w/ 2008 Chrysler Town & Country
  • We've got exactly what you're needing to get on down the road with your pop-up. As a first step, please confirm with your owner's manual that your Town and Country has sufficient towing capacity to safely tow your pop-up. For a hitch, I'd recommend the Hidden Hitch Class III receiver, part # 87451. The Hidden Hitch model won't require that the underside of the bumper fascia be trimmed, or that a stabilizing strap be used for non-trailer loads like bike racks or cargo trays in order to...

  • 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...

  • How to Install the Curt Wiring Harness part # 56146KIT in a 2010 Town and Country
  • To install the Curt Wiring Harness part # 56146KIT in your 2010 Chrysler Town and Country you will need to wire the harness by function and not wire color. The reason for this is what you already found out, the colors vary and all that really matters is the function. You will need to use the included circuit tester to test the different wires to determine their function and then wire them accordingly to the # 56146KIT. I attached an install video for you to check out, but like I said...

  • The Tow Ready T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, # 118534, and the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Harness, # C56150, both serve the same functions but are just made by two different companies. Either harness is compatible with your 2011 Chrysler Town and Country but my personal recommendation would be to purchase the Tow Ready brand. This harness provides a higher maximum amperage per circuit. I have attached a video which demonstrates the installation process of the Tow Ready Wiring Harness...

  • Recommended Wiring Harness for 2005 Chrysler Town and Country
  • The T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118300 is the right harness to wire trailer lights to your 2005 Chrysler Town and Country. This custom wiring harness adds a 4-way trailer connector to your vehicle. The T-One connector plugs directly into existing wiring so no cutting, splicing or tapping are required.

  • Running Light Voltage is Good Going in But Not Coming Out of Trailer Wiring Harness C56150
  • Since the voltage is correct going into the converter box but not correct coming out, that indicates that there is something wrong inside the converter for wiring harness # C56150. There is no fix for this and the whole harness will need to be replaced. The Curt wiring harness has a limited one year warranty. I have included a link to our help article that you can view on testing 4-Way trailer wiring harnesses as well.

  • Turn Signal Fuse Blows on 2007 Chrysler Town and Country with Trailer Wiring Harness Installed
  • If the signal fuse is blowing on the 2007 Chrysler Town and Country then that could indicate a short circuit on the trailer. You will want to disconnect the trailer and inspect the trailer wiring starting with the trailer connector. Clean off any dirt and corrosion. Then make sure the main trailer connector ground is attached to a clean and corrosion free bare metal surface. Then trace the wiring back to the tail lights. Look for any frayed or exposed wires that could be touching the...

  • Trailer Right Turn Signal Does Not Work Using Wiring Harness on a 2008 Chrysler Town and Country
  • You have tested the converter on trailer wiring harness # 118552 correctly. Since there is the correct signal going into the converter but not coming out that indicates that the converter is bad and the harness will need to be replaced. The Tow Ready wiring harnesses have a 1 year limited warranty so based on the date of purchase you would be outside of that window. The modern day wiring harnesses are very sensitive because the vehicle wiring on newer vehicles is sensitive. Because of...

So that it can be plugged into the 7-way permanently. You would not want the 4-way routed through the back door all the time.

  • 2008 Town and Country Van Trailer Light Wiring Recommendation
  • For your 2008 Chrysler Town and Country you will want to get a powered tail light wiring harness such as the Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring # C56162. The tail light circuitry on your vehicle is delicate and if it were to be overdrawn by powering trailer tail lights you would end up popping fuses left and right, and most likely end up damaging the circuitry. Whats nice about the # C56162 is that it plugs-in inline with your tail light wiring and only requires that you ground it and run...

  • Wiring for Lights to Tow a 2006 Chrysler Town and Country on a Tow Dolly
  • There are special wiring harnesses required for flat towing a vehicle. Regular trailer wiring harnesses like # 118300 are not designed to have power flow backwards through them and that would end up blowing the converter (on harnesses with converters) or damage the vehicle wiring and lights on harnesses that do not have converters. It looks like the 2006 Chrysler T and C has a 2-wire system (the turn signals are not separate from the brake lights). There are a couple of ways you can...

  • 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....

  • Why Does Curt T-Connector # C56162 for a 2009 Chrysler Town and Country Connect to Battery
  • The Curt T-Connector you referenced, part # C56162 receives the signals through its T-connection with the tail light assemblies of your Town and Country, but draws the actual voltage to power the trailer lamps directly from the battery. This is done for a few reasons. First and foremost, if the aftermarket trailer wiring harness manufacturers determine that the OE vehicle wiring is incapable of handling the extra amperage of the trailer lights being drawn through it, they will specify...

  • 2011 Chrysler Town and Country Towing a Trailer with Working Turn Signals and No Brake Lights
  • The converter box (black) in the trailer wiring harness # C56150 takes the separate brake and turn signals on the vehicle and combines them to a combined signal that is used by the trailer. The converter box or logic box contains circuitry designed to distinguish between the brake and turn signals and combine them to a single circuit on the output side. Since the turn signals are working on the trailer but the brake lights are not, this is normally a bad ground. The brake lights will...

It is a powered converter that requires a direct connection to the vehicle battery but that should not be an issue if you already have one in place. This harness plugs in line with the vehicle tail light wiring so no splicing is required. The hardwire harness would work in the same manner but...

  • Can Trailer Wiring for a 2006 Chrysler Town and Country be Routed Outside of the Van
  • Actually, that is a typical installation for the wiring harnesses for a 2006 Chrysler T and C. Take a look at the video I have linked as reference. The weather stripping on the rear of the vehicle between the hatch and bumper protects the wiring from damage as long as it is not in the latching mechanism. It is possible to route the wiring under the vehicle but you will most likely have to drill a hole. First you will need to remove the floor panels in the cargo area until you get to...

  • Does the Computer Have to be Flashed on a 2012 Chrysler Town and Country to Install Trailer Wiring
  • Both wiring harnesses for the 2012 Chrysler Town and Country, see link, are T-connectors but also need power from the vehicle battery in order to power the trailer lights. The T-connections provide the signals that tell the converter what to do. This method protects the electrical system on your van. Because these harnesses require a battery connection, you will need to disconnect the negative cable when wiring in the harness. Having the battery disconnected will essentially re-set the...

This wiring harness will not draw the power directly from the vehicle wires, but intercepts those signals and sends them to the converter box which uses power from the vehicle battery to send the signals to the 4-pole trailer connector to power the lights on the trailer.

The black wire connects to the positive battery terminal via the included in line fuse and fuse holder. Your 2009 Chrysler Town and Country will provide the brake light signals through the other two connections behind the tail lights so the red wire does not have to be attached to a different circuit, just grounded.
