Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 1999 Jeep Cherokee

Today, on our 1999 Jeep Cherokee, we'll be installing the tow-ready T-1 connector, part number 118354. We'll go ahead and show you how to use the new 4 pole connector. We'll simply take it, run it to the center of the vehicle and out, staying away from the latch as pinching the wire off in the latch can harm it. However, the weather stripping is thick enough that it won't, and we'll simply close the rear cargo door on the wire. Then, we can go ahead and pull out the new 4 pole wire as necessary to go down to the hitch or accessory. Then, once we're finished using our new 4 pole wire, we'll simply role it up and store it underneath the spare tire. To begin our install, we'll first open up the rear cargo door.

Next we'll identify the plug we'll be plugging inline with at the manufacturer's harness. This will be the white plug closest to the rear cargo door. Before I make my connection I'm going to go ahead and start routing my wire back in behind the interior trim panel. Now with my wire fed over to the connector, we'll simply press on the locking tab and disconnect the two manufacturer's connection points.

Then we'll go ahead and locate the factory ground wire, and we'll attach a white wire at the ring terminal to there. Once we clean off the location for our converter box, we'll go ahead and remove the adhesive backing an install it.

  • Troubleshooting Curt # C56208 Wire Harness Installation on 2014 Jeep Cherokee Latitude
  • Thank you for your recent purchase from etrailer of a hitch and trailer wiring harness. I am glad the hitch install went well and I am sorry for the issue with the wiring harness. I appreciate you providing specifics about your harness installation. That really helps us a lot. Apart from the plug-in T-connector fittings that match up with the connectors at the Cherokee's taillight assemblies, the only wiring required, other than attaching the ground wire, is the routing and connection...

  • Troubleshooting Utility Trailer Taillights Stop/Turn Signals Not Functioning
  • It sounds like the problem is the trailer's wiring. I know it may seem like it is working correctly since you powered it with a 12 volt battery and it appeared to work like it should, but what is most likely the problem is either from having a weak ground on your trailer wiring or the trailer lights are drawing more power than the trailer wiring is rated for. Ground problems normally show up when there is more draw on a system such as when you have the running lights on and then use...

  • Installing Trailer Wiring Harness # 118330 on 1993 Cherokee so Connector is Outside Vehicle
  • The recommended installation of the # 118330 would have the trailer connector remain in the cargo area of the vehicle until needed. This has the benefit of keeping the connector protected from the weather and from damage. I have the trailer connector in my van set up this way, and in all honesty, it works great. When I need the connector, I run it out the back and shut the rear hatch on the wire. As long as the wire is kept away from the latch, the weatherstripping will provide plenty of...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited Behind a Motor Home
  • Trailer wiring harness # 118605 is strictly for towing a trailer with your 2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited and cannot be converted for use as a flat towing harness. But I do have a great recommendation for you. For flat towing you can use wiring kit # HM55999. It is designed for use when flat towing your Jeep. In addition to the wiring I am sure you already know that you also need a few other items. For starters, you will need base plates. For your 2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited you can use #...

  • After Installing Curt Trailer Wiring Harness Right Turn Signal Does Not Work on 2014 Jeep Cherokee

  • The heavy duty towing package on the 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk looks to be the same as # HM40975-11998.

  • Availability of Trailer Wiring Harness for 1992 Jeep Comanche
  • My Contact at Curt Manufacturing tells me that the # C55330 should be the correct trailer harness for your Comanche given that it is based on the Cherokee, but did not have enough specific information to be 100 percent certain. Your best bet would be to locate the connector that your existing harness plugs into, and compare it to the T portion of the # C55330 shown in the photo I have provided. If the connectors look alike, the C55330 should work fine for you. If not, using a universal...

  • Does 1996 Jeep Cherokee with Factory Tow Package Need a Trailer Tail Light Converter # 118330
  • If the trailer connector you currently have is factory installed, you should be good to go. The signals going to that connector should already be converted, so you will not need # 118330, which would be needed if the vehicle was never equipped with a trailer connector. It sounds as if you have a 7-way trailer connector, like part # PK11893 that has 6 blade-type pins with a contact in the center. You can use a circuit tester like part # 40376 to test the connector to ensure it is functional....

  • Trailer Lights Not Working on 2001 Jeep Cherokee With Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness # 118354
  • On the Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness, part # 118354, if you find some, but not all, lighting functions work properly you may have a ground problem. In this situation a weak ground is just strong enough to provide some lighting functions but not all. When the taillights and brake lights are used at the same time, it creates the maximum amp load of the lights on the trailer. If a ground problem exists, it will show at this point. The places to check grounds are the connector on the vehicle....
