How to Install a Trailer Brake Controller on a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee


Today on our 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee we'll be installing the CURT Venturer brake controller, part number C51110. We're going to be installing this in conjunction with the direct fit wiring harness or adapter, part number C51446. Now to begin our install we're first going to take the direct fit pigtail with the matching plug and plug directly into the manufacturer's brake controller tow port. Once we click and lock it in place we can go ahead and route the pigtail. Keep in mind to stay away from any moving components such as the gas, brake, or parking brake pedal. Once I have it routed into position, simply use a zip tie to secure it as necessary. To be in position you'll route it near where you're going to mount your brake controller.

Also, once I secure the wiring harness I'm going to go ahead and cut off the excess from the zip ties to clean up the install look. Now with the brake controller pigtail installed we're ready to mount the brake controller bracket. Our bracket and hardware are supplied with the install kit. Using the hardware we'll go ahead and secure the bracket here to the bottom of the dash. Now once we have the bracket mounted we can bring in the brake controller and secure it here to the pre-drilled holes in the side. I'll first go ahead and get them started hand tight and then run them down. Now once we have our brake controller mounted and secured we can take the pigtail coming from the back of the brake controller and our direct fit wiring harness, plug the two together.

Then we'll take the remaining portion of the wiring and tuck it up underneath the dash securing it. Now once we have our brake controller installed and secured we'll go ahead and test our new brake controller. We plug in a trailer with trailer braking. It will provide a load on the trailer brake controller and we can press on the brake pedal. You'll see our display light up, indicating we're supplying power to the trailer braking. We also have a manual slide here on our brake controller that will allows us to apply power to the trailer brake without pressing on the brake pedal. Couples additional features of our trailer brake controller is the manual slide here at the top of the brake controller to adjust the power being sent to the trailer braking so we can adjust it for lighter or heavier loads.

Now for increased power going to the trailer braking, you moving in the manual slide here behind the attachment point on the driver side forward will increase the power and speed at which the trailer brakes will be applied. By moving it back we'll get a slower, smoother application of the trailer braking. There you have it for the install and setup of the CURT Venturer brake controller, part number C5110, on our 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. .
