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.

Installation

This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located behind the driver's-side and passenger's-side tail lights. You will have to remove the tail light assemblies to access this harness.


T-One Connection Location Points Behind Tail Lights

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 beneath and to the center of the vehicle. A mounting bracket (sold separately) is recommended to keep the connection secure.


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 Powered Tail Light Converter

A ModuLite power module is built into this T-One connector. Because most trailers run on a two-wire system - wherein the brake and turn signals are carried on one wire - the separate brake and turn signals from your vehicle's three-wire system need to be combined so they are compatible with the wiring system of your trailer. This power module functions as a tail light converter to combine the brake and turn signal functions of your automobile so that they run on one wire to properly activate your trailer's tail lights. Note: This will not affect how the tail lights on your vehicle operate.


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.

Another great Tekonsha product. Install was super easy and exactly as destribed in the instructions. The only area for improvement that I noticed during installation is that it would be nice if the wiring from the rear light connections to the Tekonsha control box could be slightly longer both on the driver side but especially from the control box to the passenger side light connections. This would allow for a few more mounting options for the control box but even without that, everything fit and functioned as expected.

2020 Jeep Cherokee

I had this wiring harness and the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver (Item C1335) installed at the same time on my 2020 Jeep Cherokee. I had a local independent garage do the installation since I do not have a lift. I questioned them as to how easy it was to install this item and they said it went very well, The worst part was routing the hot wire up to the battery. The mechanic was very meticulous about routing the wire so it was hidden and well protected. Overall they thought this kit was very high quality. Also, the videos are a great help to see just how it's supposed to be done! Nice job on your part!!


Comments
Absolutely no issues what so ever. Highly recommended.

This package worked absolutely perfectly with my 2021 Cherokee Trailhawk. My only suggestion is that this setup substantially cuts down on your departure angle. Serious off-roaders beware. Not an issue for the majority of my applications. This is my second purchase from etrailer. Both times it was a painless process. Quality products, a very knowledgeable staff, and quality service and follow up. I couldn't be more satisfied with my experience.




by:

This is the second harness that I have purchased. Easy to install and works as described. I would purchase again and would not hesitate to recommend to friends and family, and maybe even an enemy ;-)

All said, great product!




by:

You can't get much better than this. Everything exactly as I needed, great instructions, good prices, quick delivery. I don't bother messing with anyone else. I've done a lot of utility with this little Jeep Cherokee pulling a trailer, and it has not let me down. Very pleased. Thanks, etrailer!




by:

Excellent products and easy to install !!!!




by:

This the cleanest way to splice into existing wiring to setup tow car lightening. We have towed our car over 10,000 miles without a problem with the lights.

Installation was easy did it by myself wiring went well too. 2019 Jeep Cherokee

Very easy and quick to install. I removed the lower bumper shroud and nothing more. Fits perfectly around the muffler and required no cutting of anything.

Bottom line..
eTrailer is tops in my
book with anything trailers and hitches. Carol was able to work out the best solutions for me, and I can't remember who I followed up with regarding my wanting the trailer Tekonsha harness for my Jeep, but they were super too!

See my picture in Carol's email (attached)!

No doubt the talking (phone), and helpful videos for exactly my brand of Jeep were instrumental in making the installation easier and faster.. with a lot less banged knuckles ;-)!

You Guys and Gals Rock!
[Thumbs up]




by:

Working with etrailer was a breeze, and getting the best/exact hardware and advice for my trailer needs, wiring requirements and solutions was 100% on point. It was a great help to have the exact videos and background information about installation, best methods and things to look out for.. during my hitch setup! They are heads and shoulders above all others in support, products, and service! A+




by:
2019 Jeep Cherokee

I use this for my kayak trailer, it was easy to install and a great value. I also bought my trailer hitch which i installed on my 2019 Jeep Cherokee.. another great value and easy to install. I had one question with installation of the hitch and etrailer answered the phone within 3 rings and helped me out.




by:
2019 Jeep Cherokee

Everything went well till I ran the wires to the passenger side the red wire was not as long as the green. Did not have enough to get the wires up to plug them into the light that is the only complaint other than that they work fine

Everything was set up so simply just very easy to run and hook everything up my 10-year-old son could’ve done it




by:

Correct parts, plenty of zip ties. Easy to install. No issues.




by:

Worked out fine, DIY install. Zip ties were not long enough to tie wires to hitch behind facia like the video. NO big deal had longer zip ties on hand.




by:

Install was very simple and supplied with all components needed




by:

As always E Trailer has exceptional service and fast Delivery.

I bought the plug and play wiring kit for two Jeep Cherokees and a Chrysler 300. All of them were truly plug and play and I haven’t had a problem with either one.

This kit was Awesome! Fit the GFs Jeep perfect. easy to do while installing the hitch! Just unscrew a few screws and pop out the tail lights, plug in and put the tail lights back in. For the Jeep Cherokee, I unbolted the driver side skid plate and zip tied the power wire to a break line and put the skid plate back. crimped the power wire and fuse wires and tied it to a power post under the hood! Easy Peasy!




by:

Ordered the hitch and wiring kit for the trailer lights on the website, had it within a week and the install of the hitch and wiring was fairly quick and simple. All the hardware was included and everything has held up great. Overall a very solid product!




by:

One year review. Pretty easy install. Connectors are perfect and made that part easy. Running the power wire up to the battery is the hardest part. Still working just fine.
Good buy and I would highly recommend both this and etrailer too.




by:

A very easy install, especially if you have a hydraulic lift. Without a lift, you'll crawl around on the ground and reach for a few Advil tablets the next day! I hid and protected the + wire by unbolting the escutcheon that covers the underside of the car. If you haven't already undercoated your vehicle, I recommend having it done it AFTER you install the wiring. A freshly undercoated car is a mess to install anything on especially if it involves contact with the underside of the vehicle. For a fish, I used a simple strand of nylon cord with a small nut on the end...it's a straight run to the underside of the car and gravity makes for a good companion. I removed the 4 bolts that attach the plastic bumper to the underside of the body when it came time to hide the wires connecting the left side to the right side (makes for an easy and attractive installation).




by:
2021 Jeep Cherokee

product was great..the box did not arrive in very good shape .had a big hole in the side but all the parts were there so all was good.




by:

This a high quality part and is easy to install if you follow the video.




by:

Hitch fit good, my neighbor helped me install it.used several times and very satisfied with it.

  • Aftermarket Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2019 Jeep Cherokee
    For your 2019 Jeep Cherokee, the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness part # 118779 is a confirmed fit and will work for you. This is a brand new wiring harness that was developed specifically for the 2019 model year and that is all it will fit. This is not an OEM harness like something you would find in a dealer catalog as it is an aftermarket part that is supplied and test fit by third party manufacturers such as Tekonsha.

    I was able to check your previous invoice and found the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Connector # 118779 for your Jeep Cherokee.

    The Tekonsha # 118779 will NOT turn off the ParkSense feature of your 2019 Cherokee, but luckily enough, the folks at Jeep had the good sense to make a provision that allows you to turn off that feature temporarily. You can turn on and turn off ParkSense with the ParkSense switch located below the Uconnect display. When the switch is pushed to disable the system, the display will show 'ParkSense Off'.

    Based on the issue you are describing it sounds like the white ground wire on the Tekonsha # 118779 is not making a good connection to your 2020 Jeep Cherokee. I recommend picking a new spot on your Jeep to secure the white wire to, making sure that it is bare, corrosion free metal. If that does not fix the issue the I recommend double checking that all of the connectors are still secured, and have not come loose after driving around a while.

The hitch is designed so that the crossbar will be concealed behind the rear bumper, with only the receiver tube and safety chain loops being visible. For a trailer wiring harness, I'd recommend the Tekonsha # 118779 T-One harness. The harness will plug inline using the connectors that attach the taillight assemblies to the vehicle's taillight wiring harnesses. If you...

    The Curt 4-pole wiring harness # C56406 and the similar Tekonsha # 118779 will work great on a 2020 Jeep Cherokee without the factory tow package being present. I recommend the Tekonsha kit because in our experience their wiring products are the most reliable.

    I looked up the factory hitch and wiring kit for your 2019 Jeep Cherokee and the style of connector is the # HM11141144 which you could install on your vehicle but you'd want to use the 4-way kit part # 118779 as an easy way to get the trailer taillight functions first. This is custom fit for your vehicle and you could cut off the 4-way so that you could wire the harness to the 7-way and you'd be set.
