How to Wire Trailer Connector on Jeep Wrangler for European 7-way


For the European caravan,I want to install 7way to my jeep JL, but need to separate turn/stop to turn and stop and add the reverse light. Whitch parts do I use? The reverse wiring need to power converter?


Expert Reply:

We don't offer a European 7-way, but I can tell you how to wire one IF the trailer isn't equipped with LED lamps. On the Jeep, you'll take the turn signal and brake lamp inputs and run them through a vehicle to vehicle taillight converter like part # 118158. On the input side of the converter, ground the white wire, attach the green wire to the right turn signal circuit. Attach the yellow wire to the left turn circuit. On the output side, run the red wire to the brake pin on the European 7-way, pin number 6. Attach the green wire to pin # 4. This will split out the right turn, left turn and brake lamp circuits for you.

The European 7-way doesn't have the provision for a reverse lamp, as shown in the provided diagram.
