Tekonsha Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - 118605

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.

  • Constructed of 16-gauge bonded wire
  • Comes with dust cap for 4-way flat connector


Specs:

  • Maximum amperage:
    • Stop/turn lights: 4.2 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 tail lights on both the driver's side and passenger's side. 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 with the attached fuse holder up to your car battery. Connect the fuse holder to the positive terminal on the 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 Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2016 Jeep Cherokee

Today, in our 2016 Jeep Cherokee, we will be installing the Tow Ready T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector, part number 118605. Here's what our wiring kit consists of: we have two easy connect here which will go to our taillights; a nice little module box here and the 4-pole flat trailer connector itself; we have some wire which will run from our module box directly to our battery where we will install our fuse holder and the included 15 amp fuse; we have two butt connectors here for making our connections between the fuse holder, the wire, and the module box; a ring terminal which will go to a positive terminal of our battery; self-tapping screw for our ground wire off the module box; several zip ties here to secure the wiring along the way; some double sided tape to secure our module box to the body of our vehicle; we have nice instructions here which we will follow, step-by-step to make sure we install this properly. Make sure you read those before you begin your installation. Now that we've gone over what's included with our kit, we'll go ahead and show you how to install it. We'll begin our installation with opening our rear hatch. There's two T30 bolts on either taillight. We'll go ahead and remove those. Do the same on the other side.

Now we'll pull back on our taillight assembly and remove it from the vehicle. Undo the wiring harness here by pushing on this tab and pulling back on it. We'll set the taillight aside so we don't damage it. Do the same on the other side. We'll take the connector that has the yellow wire going to it. This is for a left side.

We'll plug it into the factory wiring here. Male end into the female end. Push it in until it clicks. We'll take our trailer connector here, drop it down through the taillight opening, and it'll fall down behind the bumper. It'll come out the bottom of the vehicle where we can grab it.

We'll do the same for our passenger side connection which has the green wire going to it. Now we'll take one end of our power wire that we're going to run to the front and drop it down as well and we'll start pulling it on through. Now we'll take the end that's still sticking out of our power wire by our taillight, strip off about a quarter inch or so of the insulation and we'll strip off a little bit more to go into the converter here. Slide on a butt connector. We'll crimp it in place. Connect the other end of the converter.

We'll crimp it on as well. Now, additionally what I'd like to do is wrap the connector in electrical tape just to prevent and dirt, debris, moisture from entering, potentially causing a short or a poor connection. Now we'll take the self-tapping screw, using a quarter inch bit, and we will ground out our ground wire here to the vehicle body, right below the taillight. Perfect. Just like that. Now we'll take some of the double-sided tape here, peel off one side, apply it to the back of our converter box, press it on nice and solid, take the other end of the tape off, and we'll slide it down between our bumper cover here and stick it to the body of the vehicle just there. That'll keep it out of the way of our taillight housing and secured properly. Before we bring our wire up to the passenger side, we need to drop down something to pull it up with. I'm just using a piece of old airline tuning here. As long as you have something somewhat flexible, but yet still somewhat rigid you can use that. A coat hanger works pretty well. We'll just drop it down through the taillight opening until it comes out the bottom. With our wire router over to the passenger side, around our hitch, we'll tape our pull wire to our connectors here and we'll start to pull them up. As you can see, our connector wires are barely long enough to make the connection, but they'll work. We'll remove our pull wire here. We'll plug our harness into the vehicle in here, just like in the other side, and we'll plug our taillight into this. With our connections made, we'll go ahead and reinstall our taillights now. Starting with our passenger side, we'll plug it in until it clicks like so and we'll reinstall our taillight assembly. We'll get the two guide pins in on the side and we'll hold it in place and reinstall our screws. Once we have them started by hand, we can finish them off up our driver. Remember, they are T30 sized screws. We'll reinstall our driver side taillight the same way. Now we need to route our power wire towards the front of the vehicle, so you can put it into the engine bay and connect it to the battery. When we do that you make sure you avoid any moving parts or any sources of heat such as the exhaust. I'm going to go ahead and route it up there and then once I have it routed, I'll show you where I went so you can follow along. Our wire dropped down from here, went over this exhaust hanger here, over this brace, over the rear sub frame and the rear swaybar, continued forward, over the rear sub frame here, down around this plastic shielding here. We followed that along, we zip tied it here to this brace that holds the plastic shielding. This will help keep it away from the exhaust. Then we used our pull wire and pulled it all the way through, underneath this plastic shielding, where it comes out here, just by the rear of our front sub frame. Now we'll take our pull wire that we used earlier and we will go behind this line underneath our master cylinder for our brakes and we will drop it on down. We'll tape the end of our power wire to our pull wire. Grab our pull wire and we'll pull up all the slack. Have a quick look underneath and make sure there's nothing hanging off anywhere. Now we'll take our excess wire here and cut it off. Strip off about a quarter inch of the insulation again. Take our yellow butt connector and crimp it down. Take our fuse holder here . You may notice that our fuse holder has a complete circle wire. We'll just cut it right here in the middle and we'll strip off about a quarter inch on each end. Take our ring terminal and install it on one end and crimp it down. The other end will go to our butt connector for our power wire for our module; we'll crimp that down. We'll take our electrical tape and we'll wrap up our butt connector just so we have a nice, good weather tight connection here. Now we'll take a 10mm socket and remove one of the nuts here from our positive battery terminal. We'll stick our ring terminal down over that, reinstall the nut and tighten it back down. We'll complete our installation by installing included 15 amp fuse into our fuse holder. We'll seal the fuse holder up with the included cap. The bracket we are using is just a standard 4-pole flat bracket, one we can secure to our valance here. If you want to purchase one of these brackets for your installation, they're just part number 18144, available separately on our website. This bracket normally is a complete ninety degree angle. I bent it back some here so when you attach it to the valance it'll stick out straight inline with the receiver of our class 3 hitch. I'm just going to locate it about where I want it. We'll take our paint marker here and we'll mark the wholes and drill them out. We'll take our bracket here with two screws installed on it and I'll push it through just like so. We will drop two flat washers here down on the screws. These will help hold it in place against our bumper cover and protect it from getting ripped out. We'll now take some small lock washers here, we'll slide them over the screws, then we'll install a couple nuts on them. Now that our bracket's securely mounted you can see that we have a nice solid connection here, we'll take our trailer wire connector here and push it on through just like so. We'll take our dust cap and we'll stick it back on. Now we'll bundle up the rest of our wire here behind our bumper. I'm just going to pull it back here. We'll secure it with one zip tie here around it and we'll tuck it back behind our bumper cover. Even though our installation's complete as far as making all our connections, we still want to test our wiring, make sure everything works. We're using a 4-pole flat trailer tester here, part number I26 on our website if you'd like to purchase one. Now that I have the headlights on you can see that the LED that goes to the brown wire is illuminated. If I do the left turn signal, you'll see the LED that goes to the yellow wire illuminate. If I do the right, the light that goes to the green wire will illuminate and flash. If I step on the brakes, both LEDs for the yellow and green wire will come on simultaneously. As you can see they're doing that. Now we have a functioning 4-pol flat trailer connector on the back of our Jeep Cherokee. That completes our installation of the Tow Ready T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector, part number 118605 on our 2016 Jeep Cherokee.

Everything worked great but the passenger side connection was not long enough to run all the way from the driver's side to the passenger side. I had to splice in a 3 foot splice to make it fit. Other wise everything else fit fine. I am not certain this is the proper kit for a 2016 Jeep Cherokee - although the website shows it as the correct item. 497970


Comments

If you route that wire to the passenger side as shown in the video I linked for you, the connector will just reach the factory taillight connector.

Quality product, Fit my 2015 jeep cherokee perfectly. All wires were plenty long enough to reach the right spots. Installation took longer than expected, maybe I am getting older with bad shoulders and crawling around my garage floor was no picnic, but everything was correct with the product! I did a clean job of it and it works as it should, very satisfied !! 529183

The product itself is actually excellent. However the instructions say it takes 35 minutes to install and 3 1/2 hours later my mechanic (very experienced) was just finishing. It was impossible to fish the wire connectors to the tail lights so we had to cut and splice them. Also (and this is a biggie) the setup apparently is not really designed for the 2014 Cherokee Ltd since the hitch bar is too close to the factory dual exhaust pipes. We could not lower the pipes so had to use a torch to cut 'notches' in the hitch bar on both sides to keep the pipes from banging into the hitch rig on even mildly rough roads. I think this is a design flaw that needs to be addressed. Assuming that cutting the notches did not substantially weaken the assembly all turned out well but it was MUCH more tedious than indicated (even when we called to get clarification). Probably much easier on standard Cherokee but on the "Limited" it is a real pain but it does seem to work after all that. 146556

IT took me about 4 hours to install. If it wasn't for your video it would of taken a lot longer to install. My wife always says if I'm not swearing, I'm not having fun. I recon I had lots of fun. Thanks. 646899

Product was of excellent quality and easy to install. I didn't use the included directions, but followed a video that I found online. The only thing that kept this from being a 5-star review is the fact that I had to lengthen the green wire (for passenger T-harness) approximately 6" as it was too short to reach. Other than that, solid product. 643951

No matter where I tried to run the passenger side green wire, it would not allow enough length to plug in the socket to the lens/light. So I had to splice in 12"s of the block wire to battery and fuse. Made for a frustrating process. 515544

Kit was relatively easy to install and works great. The Green wire that goes from the left to the right tail light was too short and I had to lengthen for my 2017 Cherokee, otherwise great fit. Fishing the wires though the underside and engine compartment was pretty easy, using a "fishing pole". 412595

This is for a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Latitude. It took me a little extra time as my helper was a 5 ton floor jack and it supported the receiver and if only my right foot had fingers it would have helped a lot. Loading the bolts and plates into the frame was a snap, I left the fish wires on the bolts and that helped a lot and I didn't lose a bolt into the frame,you must leave the exhaust hanging to get to the rear bolt closest to the exhaust curve just before the mufflers I didn't and it was a bear to torque it. Also after I cut the opening on the bottom of the bumper and already had torqued the receiver I had to pry the bottom edge over the receiver there was no other way to get the hitch up inside not enough forward space to get it to slide up and in. Other than that it was a snap. Now for the wiring harness, went well had a bit of a time getting the connectors up to the tail lights even with all 4 screws out and a little bit of play I had to pry the plastic support away from the body to get the connectors through. That was for the 4 flat, for the power for the harness I have a rig runner 4005 from Powerwerx for all my power as I am a volunteer Fire Fighter and have all the goodies that goes with it and every thing runs fine. For the 5 flat all I had to do was find and take out the backup bulb in the tail light and test to find which wire was hot. And then it was over and done put it all back together and drive away with my trailer. Sorry no picture it looks just like the factory/dealer put it on. Ray H 145519

I compared the T-One installation instructions to etrailer's installation video "how to" before I bought this harness and I would not have bought the harness if I hadn't seen the video. T-One process requires removing body panels- which I absolutety refuse to do on a brand new vehicle. The etrailer video is really descriptive, easy to follow and easy to see what tools are needed to do the job- but doesn't say what size tools to use (I didn't have a Torx T10.) 118483

For your 2015 Jeep Cherokee, the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118605 will give you the basic trailer functions as you stated and then you can add the reverse feature alone using the Curt Trailer Connector Adapter - 4-Way Flat to 5-Way Flat - Vehicle End # C57187 and simply use the quick splice to tap into the reverse light at your tail light on either side. This will give you a 5-way flat connector that is...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2017 Jeep Cherokee and Does it Install the Same as a 2016 Cherokee
  • Installation of Curt trailer hitch # C13172 will be identical on your 2017 Jeep Cherokee Latitude to the video we have on the 2016, linked for reference. 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. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If the ball mount kit does not have the right...

  • How to Install a Brake Controller on a 2016 Jeep Cherokee
  • In order to install the Tekonsha Voyager Trailer Brake Controller part # 39510 on your 2016 Jeep Cherokee you will want to use the Brake Control Plug-In Harness part # 20127 if your Jeep did not come equipped with a factory trailer connector or the Tekonsha Custom Wiring Adapter part # 3014-P if your Jeep did come equipped with a factory trailer connector. If you do have the factory trailer connector then the harness plugs into a pre-wired connector under your dash near the emergency...

  • Recommended Class III Hitch and 4-pole Wiring Kit for 2015 Jeep Cherokee
  • Curt 2-inch Class III hitch # C13171 is a confirmed fit on the 2015 Jeep Cherokee (it fits Trailhawk, Latitude, Latitude Altitude, Limited, and Sport versions) and it offers no-drill installation. An install video is included for you along with the written instructions. Curt 4-pole wiring harness kit # C56208 is also a confirmed fit, but we have found better reliability with the Tekonsha brand wiring kits so I suggest instead part # 118605 which installs in an identical manner as shown...

  • Recommended Complete Towing Package For 2016 Jeep Cherokee Latitude
  • On your 2016 Jeep Cherokee Latitude, to get all the towing functions, I recommend you begin with the trailer hitch receiver. I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13172 For your wiring, I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118605 that will attach to factory connectors behind your tail lights and then connect to your vehicle battery to protect your factory wiring from overload. Then you will...

  • Can Trailer Wiring Harness Be Connected to the Power Outlet at Back of a 2016 Jeep Cherokee
  • Even though attaching the power wire to a 12 volt outlet would make installation a little faster, the trailer wiring harness # HM11142464 needs to be connected directly to the vehicle battery on your 2016 Jeep Cherokee. This is so it is fused by itself and so the harness can maintain its level of isolation from the vehicle wiring protecting it from short circuits and possible costly repairs. I have included a link to a video showing installation of wiring harness # 118605 which installs...

  • Recommended 7-Way Wiring For 2015 Jeep Cherokee Without Tow Package
  • For your 2015 Jeep Cherokee, if you had the factory tow package, I recommend the Pollak Dodge/Chrysler OEM Plug Adapter # PK11933. Because you stated you didn't have the tow package, I have another recommendation. We will need to start with the 2015 Jeep Cherokee T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118605 which connects behind each of your tail lights, and then you will need to splice in the connector # PK11998. This will give you the 4-way trailer functions....

If this is the case then I recommend using T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness part # 118605 if you do not have the factory tow package. This kit is an almost entirely plug and play option that will provide you with a 4-way trailer connector. If you do have the factory tow package then I recommend using the 7- and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket part #...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendations for 2015 Jeep Cherokee Latitude w/ V6 Engine
  • The Curt Class III hitch you referenced, part # C13171 is a fit for ALL models of the 2015 Cherokee. I've confirmed this with my Curt representative. If you'd prefer a hitch with a crossbar that's completely concealed behind the bumper so that the only visible portion of the hitch is the receiver opening, I'd recommend the Curt Class III, part # C13172 which is also a fit for all Cherokee models. This hitch will require that a 3-1/2 by 4-3/4 portion of the underside of the rear fascia...

  • What Brake System is Recommended to use With Timbren Axle-Less Suspension?
  • If you plan on using the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR2000S02, I recommend using electric brakes with your teardrop trailer. To add these, you would first need the hub and drum assembly that is compatible with the Timbren, # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K. For electric brakes, I recommend the Electric Trailer Brake Assembly - Left Hand # AKEBRK-35L-SA and Electric Trailer Brake Assembly - Right Hand # AKEBRK-35R-SA. You would need an electric brake controller for these brakes,...

  • Available Hitch for a 2016 Jeep Cherokee Latitude
  • I have found a solution to your question. Unfortunately, the Reese hitch you referenced does not fit you 2016 Jeep Cherokee Latitude. The Reese hitch was designed to fit a 2011 Ford Ranger small size pickup. We do carry a hitch that will work for your Jeep. I like the Draw-Tite Max -Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver Class III - 2 inch, # 75998. This hitch is custom-fit to your Jeep and has a no-drill design which means you will use existing holes in your vehicle's frame to mount the hitch....

  • Does Trailer Wiring for 2017 Jeep Cherokee Void Warranty
  • The correct fitting trailer wiring harness for your 2017 Jeep Cherokee Sport is the part # 118605 which I attached an install video for. There is a law called the Magnussen-Moss warranty act that states, in part, that if you install an aftermarket part on your car then it will not void the warranty unless that part caused the problem. What's also great about the harness I recommended is that it only uses the taillight circuits of your vehicle as signal wires. It draws the power for...

  • Adding a 4- and 7-Way Trailer Connector to a 2017 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk
  • In order to install a 4- and 7-Way trailer connector on your 2017 Jeep Cherokee you will first need to install a 4-Way using # 118605. I have included a link that shows an example installation of this wiring harness for you. Once that is installed you can then install # ETBC7 which will add the 7-Way, retain the 4-Way, and provide the wiring to install a brake controller if you need one. For a brake controller I recommend the P2 # 90885 because it is easy to set up and use and it is...

  • The distance from the ground to the top of the inside edge on the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13171 is 11-1/4" when we installed it on a 2017 Jeep Cherokee. The distance from the ground to the top of the inside edge on the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13172 is 13" when we installed it on a 2017 Jeep Cherokee.

Check out the helpful article that explains how to install a brake controller from scratch. It has some very helpful diagrams that show where each wire needs to go.

  • I have attached a photo of the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C13172 installed on a 2014 Cherokee you can check out. As the photo shows, there is some trimming of the rear fascia and it is installed with dual-exhaust on the vehicle. The cross member of the hitch is behind the lower trim on the fascia and is less visible than other trailer hitches that are designed to fit. This is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2-inch receiver opening which makes it much easier to find carriers and accessories...

Since this harness functions by tapping into the taillights of your vehicle the computer would not need to be messed with. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Need Help Locating Brake Light Switch Wire in 2014 Jeep Cherokee for Brake Controller Install
  • Jeep typically used a dark green wire with a light green stripe for the brake light switch wire in the 2014 Cherokee. I recommend taking another look right behind the brake pedal arm to locate this wire. As long as this wire only has power when the brake pedal is pressed, you have found the correct wire. Your Cherokee has a combined wiring system which means that the brake and turn signals are sent along the same wire so you would not be able to tap into the brake lights in order to...

  • Installing Pollak Trailer Connector Socket HM40975-11933 on 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk

This is a direct replacement part for the OEM part. Since the harness portion of this part is fairly short (about 10-inches end to end) you should find the OEM connector very near to the original 7-way. We do not yet happen to have a video for this part on your exact vehicle. If your Trailhawk...
