Tekonsha Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - TE54FR

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

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.

The last time I wired a vehicle was 25 years ago, nightmare on Elm. To this kit, what a difference, everything I needed was in this kit, fantastic!! And, most of all, thank you, very much!! Took me 20 minutes to wire everything, read the directions and watch your video's. Best tool yet, thank you again.

Easy to install and the stay on when in use.



by:

Easy installation, I ran wiring thru inside of vehicle under carpet and out a rubber grommet in fire wall to battery as not to having wiring under vehicle



by:

This wiring harness fit our 2020 Escape Titanium Hybrid perfectly! The online video demonstrates the installation. Big thank you to etrailer.com for supplying all the parts needed to install a complete hitch assembly including a hitch, wiring harness and mounting bracket for the harness plug.

Excellent product & fit



by:

Great instructional video, quality part - what’s not to like?



by:

Good price. Have not installed yet. Was emailed and told that it will not come for a few more weeks but it arrived on time.



by:

This item was back ordered till 11/22/23 , this is totally unacceptable had to demand a refund on 8/30/23 Wish this transaction went a lot smoother. Ordered one from auto zone and will ship to my residence on 9/1/23

Very easy to install

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!



by:

The combination of finding the correct part as well as the very detailed and informative video made installation so easy on this that I didn’t need to read the instructions.



by:

Awesome product. No disappointment here.



by:

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.



by:

Super kit! It's well thought out and easy to install.



by:

Looks well made, just not enough ambition to install it



by:
2020 Ford Escape

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.



by:

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!



by:

Great fit, quick shipping, excellent video for following along and doing the install. Tons of length for the harness, very impressed.



by:
Ford Escape

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.



by:
2020 Ford Escape

The kit installed smoothly and worked on the first test. I couldn't find a You Tube video for a 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid installation but the supplied printed instructions were clear and told me what I needed to know.



by:
2020 Ford Escape

Wiring harness was a simple plug in fit for my 2020 Ford Escape. Interior panels easily popped open to access all the connection locations.



by:
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.



by:

Ordered 06/01/20 - Shipped 06/02/2020 - Arrived 06/05/2020 -
Installed 06/05/2020 (had a professional install) - Have not used it yet but look it looks good from the back of the car. I like the little device connector next to the receiver.



by:

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



by:

Looks good

  • 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...

  • 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 etrailer: - etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Matte Black Finish - Class III - 2" # e89YR 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...

  • Will the etrailer Hitch # e89YR Fit My 2021 Ford Escape Hybrid?
    Yes, the etrailer Hitch # e89YR is confirmed to fit your 2021 Ford Escape Hybrid. This hitch provides your vehicle with 525 pounds of maximum tongue weight and 3,500 pounds of maximum gross towing weight. If you need a 4-way harness to complete your setup, I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # TE54FR. With this harness, you will have tail light, brake light, and turn signal functions on a small trailer or a hitch-mounted accessory with lights....

  • Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer with a 2022 Ford Escape Hybrid
    The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2022 Ford Escape Hybrid is the etrailer # e89YR because it has the hidden crosstube but it also features a matte black finish which not only looks better, but is also more durable than the classic glossy black finish we see with other hitches. For wiring you'll want to use the T-One # TE54FR from Tekonsha as we've found their wiring kits to be the most reliable. You can use the mounting brackets # 18144 and # C57202 to secure the 4-Way connector next...

  • Will the Curt Hitch # C23FR Fit My Titanium Model of 2022 Ford Escape?
    Yes! I am pleased to report that the Curt Hitch - 2" # C23FR is a fit for moth Titanium and Titanium Hybrid models of 2022 Ford Escapes. If you need wiring to complete your setup, I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Wiring Harness - 4-Way # TE54FR. The T-One comes with a higher-quality converter box than the Curt T-Connector # C75CR. With the T-One, your trailer will have basic brake light, turn signal, and running light functionality.

  • 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...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2022 Ford Escape Hybrid
    For your 2022 Ford Escape Hybrid we have the etrailer hitch part # e89YR 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.

    The two available hitches for your 2022 Ford Escape Hybrid, are almost identical. We have the etrailer Trailer Hitch # e89YR and the Curt # C23FR. They are both very capable, class II hitches with 2" receiver openings. They are both rated up to 3,500 pounds towing and 525 pounds of tongue weight. It did look like this number varies on how your Escape was equipped from Ford though, so you will need to double check the capacities in your owner's manual. The main difference between the...

    For your 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid Titanium the Tekonsha trailer wiring part # TE54FR is a confirmed fit and can be used with the Curt aux light kit part # C53201. Now depending on what your tow bar wiring setup is this could work but it would need to be a diode setup that is wired for separate turn signals that activates the stop lights and turn signals that are on separate bulbs. If it's a diode kit that uses the stoplights as turn signals too that would mean the aux lights would only work...

    The Curt # C23FR has been confirmed as a fit on the Hybrid models of the 2020 Escape. If you're going to be towing with your Escape you'll also need a wiring harness, ball mount and hitch ball. For a wiring harness, the Tekonsha # TE54FR is the only wiring harness we have confirmed for your 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid, but will do a good job. We've generally found that these Tekonsha harnesses are the most reliable wiring we offer and the powered converter really holds up well over time. This...

It has a concealed cross tube to help maintain a factory look and comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

  • 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,...

However, you may need to use a drill, file, or rotory tool to enlarge the existing hole. You will need to open up the access hole on each side of the frame to fit the 1/2" carriage bolts through, and will need to trim the heat shield.

If you'll be towing with the hitch, you'll also need a trailer wiring harness like # TE54FR, a ball mount like # D-28 along with a # PC3 hitch pin and a trailer ball like # 19260 for a 1-7/8 or # 63845 for a 2 inch ball.

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