Tekonsha Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - TE54FR

  • Custom Fit
  • Trailer Hitch Wiring
  • 4 Flat
  • Powered Converter
  • Tekonsha

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 in rear cargo area
    • Plug in T-connector
    • Run hot lead to car battery
  • Includes ModuLite to ensure that your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailer
  • Constructed of 16-gauge bonded wire
  • Comes with dust cap for 4-way flat connector


Specs:

  • Maximum amperage:
    • Stop/turn lights: 5 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 in the rear cargo area. You will have to remove the rear threshold plate, privacy screen, storage covers, and floor covering and partially remove the rear interior trim panels to access this harness.


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 in the 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.


ModuLite Power Module

A ModuLite power module is built into this T-One connector. 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.

Easy plug and play harness. However, the instructional video should include wiring to a traditional Escape. Not just a hybrid, which the battery is in the back of the car, easy peasy to get to. The traditional gas powered car is more involved to get wired to the front of the vehicle. At least give pointers.

Works well. Fits well. My battery was all the way in the front so I wired it to a cigarette outlet that was in the back and it works great

Instructions were clear and detailed. The wiring has worked flawlessly. It may take a little time to install, but the finished product is neat and out-of-the-way. It looks as good as a factory install!

The product is excellent. Very easy to install. However I wish Ford was like Honda, where you don't have to run a hot wire to the battery.

Everything needed for our 2020 Ford Escape. All the connections were strait forward and and worked directly. You do need to open up some of that back inside paneling but that's were the connections are so you have to do what you need to do. It wasn't hard on the Escape. The instructions were accurate and clear.

The video on the install was spot on for my 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid SE. Only issues I had were cleaning up the goop from under the door weather seal that got spread along a bit after I peeled it back. A roll of paper towels and a few shots of WD40 loosened it up and got it off. I don't use the towing set up that much so I left the wires inside the car rather than mount the connector outside. Passed all tests with my tester and on the trailer. Thanks for the great products and videos!

2020 Ford Escape

I put this on my 2020 ford escape. The only slight issue I ran into was running the power wire to the battery. The video shows it being installed on a titanium version with the battery in the back. Lower models have the battery upfront with several different firewall grommets.

This wiring harness works perfectly and is very easy to install. I had ordered the C95FR which was a product made by Curt (#56432) and on there site said it was the right harness for the 2020 Escape and did not work. etrailer exchanged the part thinking it may have been bad with no questions. That one did not work either so I ordered the TE54FR which is the correct harness for my car. etrailer was great to work with and I will order from them on future needs. There video is accurate and you do not have to pull the tail lights on the 2020 escape like on all the proceeding models.

  • Trailer Wiring Recommendation for 2022 Ford Escape
    For your 2022 Ford Escape the 4-way trailer wiring harness I recommend is the Tekonsha kit part # TE54FR as it has the easiest install and is the most reliable. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Will Hands Free Liftgate of 2020 Ford Escape Still Work with Draw Tite Hitch Installed
    We've found that if you kick to either side of the hitch opening of the Draw Tite hitch # DR47FR that fits your 2020 Ford Escape the rear door will open still. The factory hitch might be a different story which is why they offer a way to relocate the sensors. We don't have a way to do this but I am sure the harness and kit is available at a Ford dealer. If you are looking for custom fit trailer wiring for your Escape as well we have the Tekonsha kit part # TE54FR as well. This installs...

  • Does Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Fit 2022 Ford Escape Hybrid
    I checked directly with Curt for you regarding this, and for your 2022 Ford Escape, the hitch WILL fit the standard hybrid models, but it will NOT fit the PHEV, or plug-in models. So as long as your '22 Escape is the standard hybrid and not the plug-in hybrid, the Curt hitch will absolutely fit, with the correct part number being the following: - Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C23FR Like you said, there are also numerous customer reviews of the # C23FR fitting an Escape Hybrid, and the...

  • Draw Tite Hitch That Fits 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid
    Yes, the Draw Tite hitch part # DR47FR is a confirmed fit for the hybrid models of the 2020 Ford Escape like what you have. This would fit and work great! For trailer wiring you'd then want the Tekonsha kit part # TE54FR for an easy to install and reliable option. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in 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...

    The Draw Tite hitch part # DR47FR that fits your 2020 Ford Escape does not include trailer wiring but you can easily add that on with the part # TE54FR for a fit that is easy and overall very reliable! Not everyone who installs a trailer hitch plans to tow a trailer which is why the wiring wasn't included. Some people only want to carry a bike rack or cargo carrier.

  • 2 inch Trailer Hitch that Fits 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid Titanium
    The 2 inch Curt hitch part # C23FR is a confirmed fit for your 2020 Ford Escape Titanium Hybrid and will allow your hands free liftgate to function if you kick to either side of the hitch opening. I attached a picture of it installed on a similar Titanium as yours for you to check out as well. I wasn't sure if you had a 4-way or not, but if you didn't the Tekonsha kit part # TE54FR is the easiest to install and also very reliable as well.

    For your 2020 Ford Escape the Curt Class III part # C23FR is our most popular option that would work really well and would be a great option. It has a plenty of weight capacity, installs very easily, and is mostly hidden too so it looks great as well. If you needed trailer wiring too the Tekonsha kit part # TE54FR is a very easy to install and reliable option as well.

    I would be happy to help clear this up for you. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C23FR is confirmed to fit your 2021 Ford Escape Titanium Hybrid. It can be confusing, but the way it is listed means it fits the Hybrid, and also fits everything else that isn't the Hybrid.

  • Best Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2020 Ford Escape
    The best trailer hitch for your 2020 Ford Escape, and the hitch I would install on mine is from Draw-Tite: - Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT95MR The reason I really like this hitch over any other is its concealed crosstube, which means you are only going to see the hitch receiver and not the "body" of the hitch, so your Escape keeps its clean look. I have added a link below to a video install for you to check out of an install on a 2020 Escape of the Draw-Tite Max-Frame...

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2020 Ford Escape
    The T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness part # TE54FR is what I recommend for a 2020 Ford Escape. It's plug-in-play so there is no splicing required. It's the most durable and reliable option we offer for this vehicle. There aren't really many differences between the T-One and T-Connector part # C75CR. The T-One however is more reliable from past experiences.

  • How to Wire 2020 Ford Escape with 7-Way Trailer Connector for Prodigy RF Wireless Brake Controller
    You'll want to use our wireless brake controller install kit, part # ETBC7L, which includes the 4 pole to 7-way adapter, and the wire, hardware and circuit breaker needed to make the 12V power connection. You'll want to draw the power directly from the vehicle battery, not from the 12V outlet in the cargo area. Drawing power directly from the battery provides a more reliable power source, and helps keeps the vehicle's wiring isolated from the trailer's to protect from short circuits. I've...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2022 Ford Escape Hybrid
    For your 2022 Ford Escape Hybrid we have the Draw Tite hitch part # DT95MR as a confirmed fit which is a really great option. It's mostly hidden and has great towing capacities as well. Only the hitch opening hangs below the rear bumper which allows it to be mostly hidden and this also helps with ground clearance. If you need trailer wiring too the Tekonsha kit part # TE54FR is an easy fit and has a very reliable converter box.

  • Is There A Difference Between 2020 And 2021 Ford Escape Hybrid Trailer Wiring Harnesses

  • Installation of 4-Flat Wiring Harness on 2022 Ford Escape
    Since your 2022 Ford Escape doesn't have the tow package and it has LED's you have no other option than to use a wiring harness that requires a power wire ran to the battery. The LED wiring harnesses are to small to splice into and you can't use anything without a power module because of the LEDs.

This harness is a simple plug and play style harness that comes out as a 4 flat connector. While the 4 flat is not being used I recommend The Mounting Bracket 4-Pole Flat # 18144 which will give it a nice clean look when not in use. I have installed an installation video below.

  • Will the Draw-Tite 75758 For a 2015 Ford Escape Also Fit on a 2020 Ford Escape
    I have a solution for you, but the Draw-Tite # 75758 is not designed to fit on the 2020 Ford Escape, so you would need a new hitch. To put a hitch on your new 2020 Escape I recommend using the Curt # C23FR because of the thick and durable powder coat that comes on Curt hitches. This will ultimately help extend the life of the hitch since it will stand up better to scratches that might otherwise lead to rust. If you're going to be towing with this hitch, you'll also need a wiring harness,...

You are only lowering the exhaust to make enough room to insert the receiver and access the fasteners.
