Tekonsha Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - 118536

Quickly and easily install a 4-way trailer connector on your vehicle with this custom wiring harness. T-One connector plugs directly into existing wiring. Powered ModuLite reduces strain on wiring system.


Features:

  • Provides a 4-way flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights
    • Compatible with 5-pole, 6-pole and 7-pole adapters (sold separately)
  • Connects quickly and easily
    • Locate connection points behind tail lights
    • Plug in T-connector
    • Run hot lead to car battery
  • Includes ModuLite to ensure that your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailer
    • Powered module connects directly to the battery to avoid overloading vehicle's electrical system
  • Constructed of 16-gauge bonded wire
  • Comes with dust cap for 4-way flat connector


Specs:

  • Maximum amperage:
    • Stop/turn light: 2.1 amps per circuit
    • Tail lights: 7.5 amps per circuit
  • 1-Year limited warranty


Installation: This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness which is located behind the driver's and passenger's-side tail lights. You will have to remove the tail light assembly to access this harness.


Tail Light T Connector Diagram

Once you've plugged in the T-connector, run the hot lead up 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 and insert the provided fuse.


Once installation is complete, the 4-way flat connector will be stowed beneath your vehicle, near the trailer hitch. A mounting bracket (sold separately) is recommended to keep the connector secure.


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.


ModuLite Powered Tail Light Converter

A ModuLite power module is built into this T-One connector. 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 your trailer. This power module functions as a tail light converter to combine 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.


With a ModuLite, your trailer's lights will be powered without overloading your vehicle's electrical system. Because the module draws power directly from your car's battery and bypasses the electrical routes that are used by a basic wiring harness, there is virtually no draw on your tail light circuits.

Video Transcript for Tekonsha Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - Trailer Hitch Wiring - 118536 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number 118536. This is the T1 Vehicle Wiring Harness with the four pole flat trailer connector. This product is going to fit certain years of the Dodge Journey. It is designed for vehicles with LED tail lights. It's going to provide the four way flat trailer connector at the back of the vehicle to power your trailer signal lights. This is compatible with five pole, six pole, and seven pole adapters. Adapters are sold separately.

It's going to come with the dust cap for the four way flat connector. That way you can always protect those connection points when the plug's not being used. Just slides over the terminals just like that. The black box right here, this is going to be the included modulight. This is going to ensure that your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailers. The power module's going to connect directly to the vehicle battery through the wiring to avoid overloading the vehicle's electrical system. A benefit of a system like this is it's designed to connect quickly and easily.

All you have to do is locate the connection points behind your tail lights and then plug in your connectors. You can see here you're going to have three sets of connectors. These two sets, yellow and white wire, and red, brown, and white wire, that goes to the driver's side of the vehicle. This is a custom fit vehicle wiring harness, so these plugs are going to match up perfectly with the plugs on the vehicle, and they're simply just going to snap and lock into place for a nice, tight, secure fit. The side with the green and white wire, that's going to go to the passenger's side of the vehicle. Once you have those connected, you're going to need to secure the connector box. It's going to come with some double-sided adhesive tape.

That way you can just peel and stick it to a nice, clean, out of the way location. Then you're going to need to run the hot lead to the vehicle battery. The hot lead's going to be the black wire coming out of the box, but before we do that, you'll need to make your ground connection. It's going to be the white wire with the ring terminal attached to it. Make the ground connection with the included self-tapping screw to a nice, clean, metal surface, and then mount the box, and then you can run the hot lead to the vehicle battery. All the necessary connectors are included, so you're going to connect this black wire with the bundle of black wire with one of the included butt connectors.

The other black wire runs up to the vehicle battery, gets another butt connector attached to it. That's going to attach to one half of the fuse holder. The other half of the fuse holder gets a ring terminal attached to it, and that's going to attach to the positive post on the vehicle battery. It does come with your 15 amp fuse. It goes right in this area here and it's got the fuse cap to keep it protected. Now once you have everything installed correctly, you can go ahead and secure any excess or slack in the wiring with the included zip ties. Then once your installation is complete, the four way connector is going to be stowed beneath your vehicle near the trailer hitch. You can loop it around the safety chain loop, or you can use a mounting bracket. Your mounting bracket is recommended. It's going to be sold separately, but it's going to help keep the connector secure. It's going to come with your detailed instructions. These are going to help walk you through the installation process step by step. Now when it comes to the maximum amperage for the stop and turn lights, we're looking at 4.2 amps per circuit, and for the tail lights, we're looking at 7.5 amps per circuit. It's also recommended you use a small amount of dielectric grease in all your electrical connections, like the plugs on your vehicle and the four pole connector itself to help prevent corrosion. That is sold separately, and if you need some, you can find that right here at etrailer.com. That's going to do it for today's look at part number 118536.

I’m holding back on 5 stars. Kit is easy enough if your experience level is there. With 30+ years of Automotive work I really had no issues. My only reason for not giving this 5 stars is the kit should include one additional item. 3m and others make great little sticky back attachments for zip ties, this kit should have at least 8-10 to properly attach the wiring. Just to many areas that my Dodge Journey lacked good attachment points. Etrailer, Pricing, shipping and informative videos are great 5 stars there 603981

Wiring harness worked fine once I got it installed. The online videos are a grea resource to follow and I frequently ran from the garage to my computer as I went through each step. Since I was doing this in my home garage without the ability to put the car up on a lift like in the video, running the wires underneath up to the battery was a bit of a trick since I couldn't fit 2 arms up most of the time (got pretty good at fastening zip-ties one handed, which is harder than it sounds), but I was able to eventually get it completed. 376345

I like that it plugs into the back of the light socket without having to cut wires - I would hate to cut into the wires of a 1 month old vehicle. One error in my instructions - the power wire on my module is black, not red as in the instructions. Easy enough to figure out since it was the only wire left. I installed mine differently than instructions, kept the all wiring and the module inside the vehicle, that way its not exposed to the elements. By removing the bottom sill cover, and prying back interior panels, I was able to push wiring through the body to the taillights. I fed the flat 4 into the bottom and coiled it where the jack stores. Can just pull the flat 4 cable out and route it under the hatch when I need to pull trailer. I also used the rear cigarette lighter/power outlet as a power source, rather than route a wire to the front. I had to cut into the pink wire and use a butt connector to do this. It wouldn't carry as much current as running a separate wire, but it worked when I tested it. 401228

This Item is just as advertise, including the pictures and installation. I received it in 4 days and had no problems installing it in a 2014 Dodge Journey. This is my first time buying from etrailer, I will be back. 219517

Rachael, I want to thank you and ETRAILER for doing a follow up on the product. So far no problems and dont anticipate any. I have also installed another for a friend who took my advice and purchase a trailer wire harness from ETRAILER. No problems with that installation either.Thanks again,

This is a product review of the T-one Wiring Harness- 118536 Installation on a 2015 Dodge Journey Crossroad (with LED Lights) The package is complete and seems well made and installs straight forward just as in the well made video (highly recommend). I do have a couple of complaints/recommendations: 1. Include A LOT more zip ties. Its a long way to the engine compartment. 2. The powered black wire should come pre-spliced correctly soldered and shrink wrapped rather than a butt splice by the installer. 3. The method and location for the control box mounting that is intended to be adhered with double stick tape is NOT well designed. There is better mounting space further down the cavity from the tail light assembly. There is much better access from below the bumper. 4. Lastly- this is a rant on Dodge. Shame on them for requiring this kind of cobble kit that should be part of the factory wiring!!! Routing the power wire up to the engine compartment is not so simple to route cleanly and keep away from the exhaust. Knowing what I know now, I would look into the possibility of tapping into a closer spare or capable 12V+ circuit that is closer. 177767

I found this to be an excellent product. The dealer told me I would have to pay them 110.00 to flash the computer in order for the trailer lights to work. I paid 60.00 and a couple days later it arrived. It took less than an hour to install. Works great! 560435

I found etrailer online after having issues with a local branch of a nationwide company that I had used for hitch installs in the past. Their service was now terrible and after 3 trips to their facility trying to get the right hitch and someone to install it for me I decided to do it myself. Ordered hitch and lighting kit on Saturday afternoon from a very friendly etrailer representative and received everything on Tuesday with free shipping. The Youtube videos made installation on my vehicle easy and with one other person helping had everything finished in a couple hours in my garage. Gave trailer a test pull and everything worked great. I will use etrailer again in the future. 427132

  • How to Tell if 2018 Dodge Journey Has LED or Incandescent Tail Lights
  • The easiest way to determine if you have LED or incandescent lights on your Dodge Journey is to simply watch them illuminate and turn off. If they come on immediately and turn off immediately then they are most likely LEDs. LEDs will also be quite a bit brighter and almost painful to look at directly. If instead you can see a bit of a transition both when coming on and turning off and the light is a bit duller, you have incandescent bulbs. If you are still unsure I recommend simply...

  • Determine if 2014 Dodge Journey has LED or Incandescent Taillights for Trailer Hitch and Wiring
  • Easiest way to tell is to watch the lights illuminate. If they come on immediately with basically zero transition between off and on and are almost painful to look at you have LEDs. If you can watch the bulb get brighter and looking at the light doesn't hurt your eyes you would have incandescents. Also if the bulb is round and has that old school style of wiring in it where there is two vertical wires and a couple horizontal wires that run between them that is incandescent. For a...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2017 Dodge Journey Crossroads with LED Tail Lights
  • We do have trailer wiring harnesses that plug in line with the tail lights on your 2017 Dodge Journey. But they also require power from the vehicle battery.

A Draw-Tite trailer hitch is basically the same as a Reese hitch made by the same company since Draw-Tite is one of Reese's sister brands. The trailer hitch that I recommend for your 2013 Dodge Journey is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 75648. This is a Class III hitch that will work with your LED light and...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2013 Dodge Journey with LED Tail Lights
  • Since your 2013 Dodge Journey has LED tail lights you will want to use trailer wiring harness # 118536. The wiring harness that you referenced, # 118495, only fits the 2010 Dodge Journey and will not fit a 2013. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. To answer your other question, wiring harness # C56330 installs and works the same way as # 118536. It is just a different manufacturer, Curt. If given the choice I would go with Tow Ready harness # 118536 because...

  • Comparing Current Output of Tow Ready and Curt Wiring Harnesses for 2013 Dodge Journey with LEDs
  • A vehicle that uses LED-type lighting for its own light functions will typically use smaller gauge wiring than a vehicle that was designed with standard incandescent lights which draw roughly 10 times as much power. This efficiency with LEDs makes the vehicle able to use less copper, which means both lower cost and lower weight. Not a bad thing. That lighter-gauge wiring also means that the trailer wiring harness you use will have to be a powered type, which draws the actual power for...

  • 4-Pole Trailer Wiring Harness Kits for 2017 Dodge Journey Crossroad
  • For the 2017 Dodge Journey that has LED-type tail lights we offer a powered 4-pole wiring harness kit, Tekonsha # 118536. This installs with plug-and-play taillight connectors that install at your tail lights and with a single wire for 12V power that needs to be run up to the engine compartment. Because your car has high-efficiency LED lights, its wiring can be thinner gauge than it would be for standard bulbs, and this means that this OEM wiring cannot handle the additional power drawn...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2015 Dodge Journey Crossroads
  • I spoke with my contact over at Curt and he said the old hitch 13335 is not a fit for the Crossroads models because of an exhaust bracket interference issue. The redesigned version, # C13201, will fit both the regular and Crossroads models of the 2015 Dodge journey. If you want to go ahead and replace the hitch with the new version then I also recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise...

  • Does Bumper or Rear Fascia Need Trimming to Install Trailer Hitch on 2013 Dodge Journey
  • The hitches available for your 2013 Journey would install so the receiver tube sits just below the rear bumper, as you can see in the provided photo. As you can see in the linked instructions and install video, no cutting or trimming of the bumper or bumper fascia is needed. I'd recommend going with the Draw-Tite Class III hitch, part # 75648. If you'll be towing with your hitch, you'll also need the following to complete your towing system: Trailer wiring harness, part # 118536...

  • Should the Trailer Hitch or Trailer Wiring be Installed First on a 2014 Dodge Journey
  • Installing the wiring harness # 118536 first on your 2014 Dodge Journey could make it easier. This is because you will need to route a connector from the left side of the vehicle to the right side. The hitch could potentially get in the way. Take a look at the video I have linked showing installation of the wiring on a Journey. Notice that the hitch is installed in this video and it wasn't really in the way. Ultimately I don't think it is going to matter which you install first. You...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2013 Dodge Journey
  • All you will need is the proper wiring harness for your 2013 Dodge Journey and you will be able to tow the trailer with the 4-Way flat connector it was. If your Journey has LED tail lights then you can use wiring harness # 118536. I have linked a video showing how it installs. If your Journey has regular incandescent bulbs then use wiring harness # 118567. These harnesses plug in line with the tail light connectors on your Journey and have a 4-Way flat connector that will plug into...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2015 Dodge Journey SXT with Dual Exhaust
  • Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75648 does indeed fit a 2015 Dodge Journey with dual exhaust. In order to get to the mounting locations for the hitch you will need to temporarily lower the exhaust. Take a look at the video I have linked that shows an example installation on a model with dual exhaust. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop....

  • Recommendation for Trailer Wiring Harness on 2011 Dodge Journey
  • On a 2011 Dodge Journey the hitch wiring does not run to the rear of the vehicle, and the vehicles wiring is not designed to handle the draw of the trailer lights when using a T-One wiring harness that will just plug into the vehicles taillights. You will need a wiring harness that will use a powered converter and have a separate power wire that runs directly to the vehicles battery. The correct wiring harness for the 2011 Dodge Journey with LED lights is the Tow Ready Wiring Harness,...

  • Which Trailer Wiring Harness for 2013 Dodge Journey with LED Taillights
  • The Curt T-Connector, part # C56330 is a fit for your 2013 Dodge Journey with LED lamps. I have confirmed this with Curt. Tekonsha also offers a similar wiring harness, part # 118536. The Tekonsha connector is rated for a higher amperage than the Curt model, and is a bit higher rated by our customers. Because of this, I'd personally choose the Tekonsha connector over the Curt model. Both these connectors will plug inline with the factory wiring harnesses, and would require no cutting...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation for a 2016 Dodge Journey
  • I have a trailer wiring harness I can recommend for your 2016 Dodge Journey, but it is not the part # 118536. Instead you would want the # C59496 as it has been confirmed to fit your vehicle. It is not a plug and play option though and will require some hardwiring.

  • Which Trailer Wiring Harness w/ 4-Pole Trailer Connector for 2015 Dodge Journey w/ LED Taillights
  • For 2015 Dodge Journey models with LED taillights, you'll want to use the Tow Ready # 118536. The Tow Ready # 118567 you referenced is for models with incandescent taillights, so it will not work on your vehicle. If you click the provided link, you can see an installation video. I've also linked you to a listing of other vehicle specific items and accessories for your Dodge Journey.

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation for 2014 Dodge Journey
  • I wish there was but the only way to replace trailer wiring is with an entire new kit. Which now would be a great time to go with the # 118536 kit instead. The Tekonsha brand of trailer has been much more reliable for us than the Curt kits which are pretty easy to short out. Main reason is because the Tekonsha kits can higher a much higher amperage rating.

  • Vehicle Trailer Towing Connectors for a 2018 Dodge Journey
  • Although I don't know if your 2018 Dodge Journey already have wiring for the light functions on a trailer, I can let you know how to find that out and offer some solutions for if you don't. To figure out if your Journey has wiring you simply need to check the back of your vehicle and see if there is a 4-Way flat connector that looks like the picture I attached for you. You may also want to check inside the hatch of your Journey as well. If you cannot find a connector then that means...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Wiring Converter Box On 2012 Dodge Journey
  • If you used a circuit tester like # PTW2993 to check that right turn signal going into the converter and coming out of the converter and it works going in but not coming out, there are really only 2 possible options. The first is that you have a bad ground to your converter and just need to make sure you have a clean metal to metal connection. If your right turn and stop still won't work after cleaning a ground, then the converter is bad and will need to be replaced. If you need to...
