Installation

This custom-fit T-connector plugs into your vehicle'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 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 in an out-of-the-way location within your rear cargo area.


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 vehicle'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 vehicle 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 T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness Installation - 2017 Dodge Journey

Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Dodge Journey we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Curt T Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4 Pole Flat Trailer Connector, part number C56330.Here's what our wiring looks like once it's fully installed. It is going to stay on the outside of the vehicle at all times, which is nice because it's going to be right by our hitch whenever we're ready to tow. It's going to give us a 4 pole flat trailer connector, which is going to have our ground, taillights, turn signals and brake lights, so we can get down the road safely and within the law. Now that we've seen the end result, let's go ahead and show you how we got it installed.To begin our installation, we're going to need to open up our rear hatch to gain access to our taillights. We're going to have a few fasteners holding our taillight in, and they're just going to be plastic push pins, so I'm going to take a flat head screwdriver and come to the notch, and pop out the center section of the push pin first, which is going to take some tension off. Once you have that center section popped out, you should be able to work the clip out, and then we can pop the rest of the clip out.

We're going to go ahead and remove all the push pins that are holding both of our taillights in place.Now, to remove the taillight you're going to want to grab the inner section and try to get your hand around the outer edge here, and you're going to want to pull straight back. You don't want to have too much side movement, because there are some pins in there that are going to hold it in place, and you don't want to break those. On the gray connector down here there's going to be a little knob or tab. You're going to want to push in on it, and it'll release so we can pull it off. Now, the one up here, just want to slightly pull up and away, and that way you can pull the rest of it out.

We'll go ahead and do the same thing on the other side.Go ahead and grab your wiring harness, and we're going to start on the driver's side with the red and brown wires, and the yellow and white wires with our T connectors. Now, our T connectors are going to match up along with the harness that's on our vehicle, so we're just going to take the female end and find the male end on our harness, and we're going to plug them together. You're going to want to make sure that they lock into place. We'll do that with the other one as well. Now, the other ends are going to plug into our taillight once we put it back in place.Now, there's going to be a black wire coming off of our module box.

That's going to be going towards our battery. Our kit does come with a butt connector, but I'm going to be replacing it with a heat shrink butt connector for a little bit better protection against corrosion and moisture buildup. Now, if you need some of these, you can pick some up on our website using part number DW05745-5, and that would be for a pack of five of them. You're going to take our butt connector, slide it over our wire, and crimp it into place.On the other end of the wire, we're going to take the length of wire that they give us in our kit, strip back the end, and crimp it to the other end of our butt connector. We're using a heat gun to shrink down my connector.

Just want to mention, if you are using an open flame such as a torch or a lighter, you want to be extra careful not to burn or char the connector or the wire itself. Now, we're going to have another wire coming off of our converter box. It's going to be a white wire with a ring terminal and that's going to be for our ground. We're going to need to secure this to some sheet metal, and we're going to be taking the provided self tapping screw and securing it right here. That way it's out of the way, you still have clearance for our taillight.At this point, we're ready to start running our wires over to the passenger side, so we're going to take all of our wires; the green wire, our 4 pole flat, and the black wire that we extended, and we're going to put it down through the body and through the bumper here, and come out through the bottom. If it's easier, you can take one wire at a time and start feeding it through. It'll make it a little bit easier if you just reach up through the bottom, start pulling all the excess slack out. It never hurst to double check and make sure that it didn't get wadded up and caught on anything. Then we're going to repeat that for all the remaining wires that we have.In order to get our converter box mounted so it's not just banging around the inside of the body there, we've taken the provided double sided foam tape, take one side of the backing off, push on it firmly. We can actually take the other side off, and then we're going to be sticking it right to the inside of the bumper right here. That way, it won't get in the way of the taillights, and we'll still have plenty of room. Just want to make sure you push firm so it sticks and it's not going to fall off.You're going to want to route your green wire over, just going to go right behind the hitch here and just loosely put it in place. Go around the exhaust, and then we're going to need to get our green wire up to our passenger side. We'll go ahead and move back up top and I'll show you how we're going to get it up there.Got an old air line tube here that I had laying around. I'm going to actually feed this down through the body and the bumper here, until it reaches down below, and then I can attach my wire to it and pull it back up. Now, if you don't have an air line tube that's all right, you can use whatever you have available, even if it is just an old coat hanger. Just want something that's going to keep its shape when you start pushing and pulling on it. Just take my air line tube and a little bit of electrical tape and secure my wire to my air line tube. Once we have it up, we're going to pull the tape off and start making our connections.Now on this side, we're only going to have one T connector. We can go ahead and take our connector here, find the male end and the female end, match them up. Make sure they lock into place. We can go ahead and work on putting our taillights back in. You're going to take the last connector coming from our harness, and we're going to plug that into our taillight, then plug the other connector back in as well. Make sure they lock into place, and line our taillight back up, making sure that the pins are lined up as well. Then we can start replacing our fasteners.Now with these push pins, you're going to want to put this outer section in first, and then push the center to lock it down. We'll go ahead and repeat that for the other taillight as well. We'll go ahead and take my 4 pole, and I'm going to loosely route it over to the center of my hitch. I'm just going to take the dust cover, I'm going to use that to just loosely attach it for now. Then we can start focusing on our black wire.Now, our black wire is going to have to run up to the battery, so I'm going to go ahead and run this. Everybody's going to do it a little bit differently. I just want to mention you want to stay away from any heat sources like the exhaust or any moving parts like the steering or suspension components. I'm going to run this, and after I get it done I'll show you how I routed it.I ran my wire back around my muffler, went over the subframe, over the axle, and it came down right by my fuel tank. Went along the outside edge zip tying in to my emergency brake cable, going along the frame, putting a few more zip ties, and finally I came out right by the subframe brace in the front. Now we're going to move up top, and I'll show you how we're going to get our wire up to our battery.Underneath the hood here, our battery post is going to be located right by the driver's side. Since our battery's actually located in the wheel well just below all of this electronics right here, so we're going to have our positive post right here. Again, I'm going to take my fish wire, and I'm going to feed it down so I can meet up with my wire underneath. Again, you just want to be careful where you're routing it. You want to stay away from any heat sources, you want to stay away from any moving parts, because we're going to have our steering linkage as well as the rack and pinion up here, so you just don't want to be rubbing up against it or any other moving, hot parts.Here's where my air line tube came out. I'm going to take the end of my black charge wire, and going to push it into the end of my air line tube slightly, and then take some electrical tape and secure it, making sure it won't fall off. Now we can go back up top and start pulling it through. Once you get your wire up, you want to make sure you pull all the slack out. It's not even a bad idea to take an extra peek underneath to make sure it didn't get wadded up and get stuck, because you don't want to have anything hanging down, potentially getting ripped off when you're going down the road.Our kit's going to come with a fuse holder, so I'm going to go ahead and estimate about how much wire I need, maybe give myself a little bit of extra. I'm going to go ahead and cut our charge wire and strip back the end. Then take a butt connector, and since this one's under the hood and it's not exposed to as much of the elements, I can go ahead and use the one they do provide us in our kit and not be using a heat shrink connector, but if you like, you can go ahead and use that as well.In our kit, the end of our fuse holder has some pre-stripped ends on it, so you can just pull the wires off. Then we can crimp it into the other end of our butt connector. On the other end of our fuse holder, we're going to have a ring terminal that we're going to be crimping in place. Slide it over, crimp it down. Lift up the cover so we can expose the post. We're going to need to remove that nut so we can get our ring terminal in place. We'll be using a 15 millimeter socket to remove the nut. With that removed, we can take our ring terminal, slide it over the post, and then reinstall that nut.We can take our 10 amp fuse, slide it into the fuse holder, and now would be the time to go ahead and tidy up all your wires, zip tying everything and securing it, even at the back. You want to go ahead and zip tie all your loose wires and route everything, and making sure that they're not going to be burned, charred, or ripped out by any hot or moving parts. This is what my wiring looked like when I got done with it. I zip tied everything along the hitch, and then took some wire loom and some electrical tape and wrapped the section here, as well as each section by the exhaust to protect the wires, and then put a little bit of electrical tape around it to hold it. Now, if you need some wire loom, I used 1/2 inch diameter, and you can pick some up on our website using part number 459075-1, and that's going to be by the foot.Our final step is going to be testing our wiring and making sure that it works properly. I got my 4 pole tester here, and if you need one of these, you can pick one upon our website using part number I26. I'm going to grab an extra set of hands and have them run my lights so I can make sure that they're working back here. All right, can you turn on the headlights please Looks good. Left turn signal Good. Right turn signal Good, and the brakes, good. All right, with everything looking good, we're ready to hit the road. That'll finish up your look at the Curt T Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4 Pole Flat Trailer Connector, part number C56330 on our 2017 Dodge Journey.

Second hitch I bought from etrailer and will continue doing business with them. Ordered on Sunday and at my door on Wednesday with standard shipping in southern wisconsin. It's going on our 2016 journey to pull our popup camper. I hope to post a pic this weekend after I install. 485064

Only two things I would suggest to improve this item, more zip ties (cost about $0.12), and better splices (costs about $0.13). If this kit had better splices and a few more zip ties it would be sheer perfection! As it is it is still awesome! I bought the and harness, Put it on my 8 day old car that Dodge wanted $395 to add a tow package on for less than half the price. WAY better this way!!! Costs less money and took me about an hour TOTAL INSTALL TIME for both the hitch AND the harness!!! Love etrailer.com, so far everything has been spot on!! Only thing left is to buy the 4-pin to 7-pin adapter that hard mounts to my hitch and all is done! I love how they showed my exact vehicle install on video. Makes EVERYTHING easier! Makes deterring what to buy a no brainer. Made my first hitch install look like I was a pro! It's like having a GPS unit, makes you an instant expert on getting where you are going. 435214

I was really disappointed with the adhesive on the back of the controller. I even washed the area 4 times where I intended to place it and waited long enough for it to dry. Just to say it was very clean and there was no reason for it to fall off when I took my vacation pulling my camper. Glad I had gorilla tape on hand. Had to take time out of my commute to reach up and tape the controller onto the body of my Dodge Journey. 1 year later and it has not fallen off. I was also disappointed in the installation videos recommending that I fix the wire for the 4-way connector by using plastic tie wraps. Looked a bit gaudy when I was done. There should have been a better recommendation. 642700

I am a DIY kinda Guy and I found the detailed videos an excellent study guide for how to, along with tips and tricks to make it easier. I haul three different trailers and each has been pulled using the tow bar and wire harness purchased from etrailer with great satisfaction. When I purchased my Dodge Journey from a Dodge dealer, they wanted $2000.00 to install a Curt Hitch, I did it for much less with etrailer and still had money left to actually go on the vacation instead of putting it into the same exact hitch package I bought right here. As I said I'm a DIYer and I will take all the free advice and help I can get. etrailer helped me to Get R done... 629820

The harness was easy to install and works great. The only problem I had with it is the harness that goes from the left tail light to the right is too short. It needs to be about 6 inches longer. This harness definitely made installation easy and at a great price. 565636

My vehicle wiring for my trailer went out and a local dealer was ordering a new one. He ordered the wrong one. Then he said it would take a week to get the right one...enter etrailer.com. They had the part I needed and I was able to get it delivered the next day (less than 20 hours). The part was easy to install and took only 20 minutes. This saved my trip to Canada. The price was reasonable, the videos were helpful, and their service allowed me to have a safe fishing trip! I will definitely use them again if needed and refer others to their site. Keep up the great work and God Bless. 559904

Dodge Journey SXT Curt 56330 wiring for LED tail lights. Everything you need is included. Nice kit. The reviews were right, the green wire for the passenger side is about 4 inches short. I would think that Curt would remedy this or and least give the following instruction. Remove the green wire from the white notice wrapped around the wire bundle coming out of the power module. This will you the few extra inches you need. I see that the notice has been removed from the wires in the review of the wiring kit. I don’t have a vehicle lift, so the running of the power wire to the battery took a bit of time. I found that lifting the drivers side of the Journey about a foot and removing the tires let me find a path for the wire to follow. Would have been 5 stars if the green wire was loose so that it would be long enough to start with. 466071

Like this product a lot. The connectors were factory quality and fit well, it gives nice piece of mind that there's no splicing or tapping into factory wires. The crossover wire from the drivers side of the vehicle to the passenger side seemed kind of tight, I spliced another 6" of wire into it so I could zip tie it up and out of the way nicely. Otherwise it works nicely. 422913

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for 2017 Dodge Journey
  • For your 2017 Dodge Journey we can certainly help you pick out the correct hitch and wiring. For a hitch you'd want to start with the Curt hitch part # C13201 which is a confirmed fit and will work well. This hitch has the best capacities and price for your 2017 Dodge Journey so it is what we recommend the highest.

  • Where to Access 12V Power for Installing Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness C56330
  • Powered 4-pole harnesses like the Curt # C56330 are designed for a direct 12V connection to the vehicle battery in order to isolate the car's own internal wiring from any potential fault conditions on the trailer. Although it seems simple and is tempting to consider using the auxiliary 12V power outlet in a car, those outlets usually cannot deliver the same amount of current that a direct battery connection can. Alternate installation would likely void the warranty. Vehicles like your...

  • Trailer Wiring Recommendation for 2014 Dodge Journey
  • As long as your 2014 Dodge Journey has incandescent trailer lights the Curt harness part # C56109 that you referenced is a confirmed fit and would work well. If instead you have LED lights you would want the part # C56330.

  • Recommended 4-Way Vehicle Wiring Harness for a 2016 Dodge Journey with LED or incandescent lighting
  • The Curt T-Connector vehicle wiring harness # C56109 does not require a powered converter because it is designed for vehicles that have incandescent lights. Traditional incandescent bulbs draw much more power than modern LED lights, so they can handle the additional load from trailer lights. Vehicles with LED lights draw less power than those with incandescent lights. Factory installed LED wiring is not designed to handle the larger loads that will occur after hooking up your trailer...

  • Easy Way to Bypass Non-Functioning Reverse Light Circuit on Trailer Connector
  • For your situation I would recommend bypassing the Mopar harness and get the reverse light directly from the reverse light harness of your vehicle. This will eliminate the trouble of trying to track down the problem and will solve the problem pretty effectively. Aside from that you could try checking fuses that are trailer wiring related under the hood of the vehicle as that could be an easy fix as well.

  • Troubleshooting Lighting Issue With Curt T-Connector Installed On 2016 Dodge Journey
  • Let's start by making sure you have the correct harness. The Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # C56109 is a confirmed fit for a 2016 Dodge Journey only if it has Incandescent tail lights. If you have LED tail lights, this harness will not fit. If you have LED tail lights, you will need the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # C56330 instead.

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation for 2016 Dodge Journey
  • For your 2016 Dodge Journey with LED lighting you would want the Curt trailer wiring harness part # C56330 . Modern vehicles use more delicate turn signal wiring setups that can't handle the amperage load of trailer wiring so you have to use harnesses like what I mentioned so that you can tap into the turn signals and then draw the power from the battery directly. This harness actually installs pretty easily. It installs in line with your vehicle's wiring instead of requiring splicing.

  • Is an Installation Video Available for the Curt T-Connector Harness C56330 in a 2013 Dodge Journey
  • We have not had a vehicle here to allow us to produce an installation video for this particular wiring harness, Curt # C56330, in the 2013 Dodge Journey. However, since this is a plug-in harness its installation will be quite similar to that of many other comparable products from Curt and other brands. Please note that this harness works only with vehicles that have LED-type tail lights. It will not work with vehicles that have incandescent lights. Installation requires temporary removal...

  • Which Trailer Wiring Harness for 2013 Dodge Journey w/ LED Taillights
  • Both companies are highly reputable and make a quality product. Either harness you referenced would work just fine for you, but I would personally choose the Tow Ready # 118536 as it has a higher amperage rating than the Curt model. Tekonsha has also been around longer, for these reasons I would give their product the edge. I have linked you to the installation details for both the Tow Ready and the Curt harness.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2017 Dodge Journey Crossroad
  • For your 2017 Dodge Journey Crossroad, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75648. This trailer hitch receiver is easy to install and can tow 4000 lbs with or without a weight distribution system. This means the trailer when completely loaded can weight up to 4,000 lbs. The tongue weight is that amount of weight that rests on the hitch ball, and this hitch is rated to have up to 400 lbs resting on that hitch ball. I recommend using a weight distribution system...

  • Driver Side Tail Lights Shut Off After Trailer Wiring Harness Install on a 2018 Dodge Journey
  • The most common issue we have with the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness part # C56109 on a 2018 Dodge Journey is an insufficient ground. Therefore, I recommend that you remove the ground for this harness, sand down the surface, and then reattach. This should fix your issue but if it does not then check the pins inside the driver side plug to make sure they are not bent or broken. If the issue still occurs after the ground has been reattached and the driver side plug has been...

  • First, let's make sure your are using the right wiring harness for your 2012 Dodge Journey. Wiring harness # C56330 is designed for models that have LED tail lights.

  • Adding a 7-Way Trailer Connector and Brake Controller to a 2011 Dodge Journey with Tow Package
  • Since your 2011 Dodge Journey already has a 4-Way flat trailer connector all you will need to add a brake controller is the brake controller itself and an installation kit that includes a 7-Way trailer connector. There isn't a plug and play type of harness for the 2011 Dodge Journey because the vehicle isn't set up for it even if it has the factory tow package. This means there is a little hardwiring required. For a brake controller I recommend the P2, # 90885, because it's easy to...
