How to Install a Trailer Wiring Harness on a 2006 Dodge Dakota

Today on this 2006 Dodge Dakota, we are going to install part number 55323 from Curt. The wire harness does plug in behind the taillights. So, the first thing that we need to do is go ahead and remove the taillights. We are going to start on the driver side and work our way over to the passenger side. We are going to remove these two screws on the side right here. Looking at the light here, the top section is the part we need to disconnect two little tabs on each side here and here. Push those tabs in and the connector comes apart. Now we can start installing the T-connector. We are going to use the yellow end. That will be for the left hand side. So let us go ahead and just plug that back together. And they are also keyed, so make sure they go in the right way. And you just push them back together until they make a clicking noise. And these fit in between the wire harness in the vehicle and the taillight. 1:02

We are going to take the 4-pole end of the wire harness and we are just going to it behind the taillight and down towards the ground. And then we will take the other half of the T-connector and run it over to the other side. We can go ahead and reinstall the taillight at this point. Now we will take our green wire and we will just route it across to the other side of the vehicle. And we will take that and push that out through the taillight. Alright, it is the same thing as before on the driver side. We will go ahead and disconnect and then reconnect it with our T-one harness connected to it. When those connections are made, you can go ahead and reinstall the taillight. And we will also run the 4-pole end of the wire harness to the middle of the hitch. Now that we have the layout of our wire, we will go ahead and zip-tie everything together, keep it out of the way. Alright, with that that will finish it for our install of part number 55323 from Curt.
