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

  • 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.

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.

2020 Ford Escape

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.

  • Curt Trailer Hitch vs. Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch on 2020 Ford Escape
    When it comes to the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C23FR compared to the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # DR47FR for your 2020 Ford Escape there are a couple of differences between the two that I'll go over for you. The first is the style, with the Curt hitch being a concealed crosstube which only shows the receiver, while the Draw-Tite is a visible crosstube, so the Curt is going to maintain your Escape's look better than the Draw-Tite. The accompanying photo is from the linked instructions...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Fit for 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid
    There is a trailer hitch receiver that fits your 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid, though it is different than the one you mentioned. I confirmed with Curt that the hitch that fits your 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C23FR. If you also plan on towing, the trailer wiring harness that fits your '20 Escape Hybrid is the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # TE54FR. I have added links to the installation instructions of both for you to check out as well.

  • Comparing the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Part C23FR and Part CU56FR for a 2020 Ford Escape
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C23FR and part # CU56FR are virtually identical. They are both bolt-on USA made options which fit a 2020 Ford Escape. The former has a few small cuts in the flange which will accommodate hybrid models but it will also fit non-hybrid models as well. Therefore, I recommend going with the most cost effective option as they are both fits for a non-hybrid model. If you'll be towing don't forget the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness part # TE54FR and etrailer...

  • Recommended Hitch for 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid
    I have a solution for you, but the Curt # CU56FR has not been confirmed as a fit on the 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid models. Instead, you will want to use the Draw-Tite # DR47FR, which has been confirmed as a fit on your Escape Hybrid. When it comes to the operations of the hands free lift gate, we have found that in order to use this feature you will need to kick on either side of the hitch receiver, but it will still operate and allow you utilize the hands free opening of your rear cargo gate.

  • 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...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommended for 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid
    We sure do. I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class III hitch, part # DT56MR which is a confirmed fit for the 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid. If you'll be using the hitch for light duty towing, you'll also need a trailer wiring harness like part # TE54FR, a ball mount like # D-28 and a hitch pin like # PC3 and # 19261 for a 1-7/8 or # 63845 for a 2 inch trailer ball. I've linked to an installation video for the wiring harness as well as to the installation instructions for the hitch I recommended. The...

    You are correct the Curt hitch part # CU56FR on the 2020 Ford Escape is not recommended for weight distribution. I recommend to use the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # DR47FR for the 2020 Ford Escape which is compatible with a weight distribution system. If you plan on doing some light weight towing in the future, I recommend Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector part # TE54FR which will give you a 4-pole flat on the Escape to illuminate...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2021 Ford Escape Hybrid
    For your 2021 Ford Escape Hybrid I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C23FR which is a confirmed fit for your vehicle. I like this hitch over the Draw-Tite # DT56MR due to Curt hitches being made in the USA, and them using a more durable powder coat finish to better protect the hitch from chips and scratches, and help it better resist rust and corrosion. To get this hitch installed on your Escape you will need to open up an access hole on each side of the hitch to fit the 1/2"...

  • Best Trailer Hitch for a 2020 Ford Escape
    The best trailer hitch for a 2020 Ford Escape is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # CU56FR. The Curt Hitch is an excellent option because it has a hidden cross-tube design which means you won't see the bulky cross tube hanging below the rear bumper which makes for the cleanest look. Furthermore, the installation process will be easier than other options taking only 20-40 minutes on average. I have attached an install photo for you as well. If you will be towing then you'll also need...

  • 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...

  • 2" Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver and 4-Way Wiring Harness For a 2020 Ford Escape
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C23FR will require you to temporarily lower the exhaust so that you will be able to access the area where the receiver will be installed. You are only lowering the exhaust to make enough room to insert the receiver and access the fasteners. After you are completed with the installation the exhaust will go right back into the same place it was. The hole size most likely will need to be enlarged so that the bolts and spacers can be inserted into the frame....

  • What Hitch Receiver Fits My 2021 Ford Escape Hybrid Model?
    For a hitch for your 2021 Ford Escape Hybrid, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch - 2" # DT56MR. The Draw-Tite hitch is compatible with your Hybrid Escape and comes with all mounting hardware required for a bolt-on installation. As far as weight capacity, the hitch has a 675 pound maximum tongue weight and a 4,500 pound gross towing rating. In order to confirm whether your vehicle can accommodate this much weight, I recommend confirming your vehicle's weight capacity with...

  • Trailer Hitch with Higher Towing Capacity for 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid
    Having a higher rated trailer hitch for your 2020 Ford Escape than what you'd end up needing won't negatively affect anything. The Curt Hitch part # C23FR is a fit for your 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid and would be a great solution even though it has more weight capacity than you'd need. What ends up happening is that the trailer hitch manufacturers design the hitch to fit the vehicle and then reinforce it to be as strong as possible and then independently rate it away from the vehicle it fits...

  • 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...

I attached a picture of it installed on a similar Titanium as yours for you to check out as well.

    Your 2011 Escape is a 2nd generation and the 2020 is a 4th generation, so unfortunately there are significant differences in the rear structure of the vehicle that prevent the hitch from your 2011 from fitting your new 2020. The good news is that there are thousands upon thousands of 2011 Escapes still on the road, and there's likely a market for a used hitch if you were to post it on a buy/sell/trade type website and use the proceeds to defray part of the cost of a new hitch.
