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
  • 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:

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:

Awesome product. No disappointment here.



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:

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



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:

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:

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



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:
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:

Looks good



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

I use to work for [online] many years ago.

  • 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...

  • Installation of Class III Hitch on 2020 Ford Escape
    Actually, the trailer hitches available for the 2020 Ford Escape such as my personal favorite Curt Class III # C23FR are really simple to install even for somebody with minimal mechanical ability. I'll link you to the installation instructions as well as to a video showing this hitch being installed on a 2020 Escape like yours. You can check those out and pretty easily determine if this is something you'd feel comfortable attempting yourself. If you'd rather have someone complete the...

    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.

  • 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...

    Since your 2022 Ford Escape doesn't have the tow package and it has LED's you have no other option than to use a wiring harness that requires a power wire ran to the battery. The LED wiring harnesses are to small to splice into and you can't use anything without a power module because of the LEDs.

  • Comparing Curt and etrailer Trailer Hitch Receivers For 2022 Ford Escape
    For your 2022 Ford Escape non-hybrid there are two trailer hitch receiver options, the Curt # C23FR, and the etrailer # e89YR. Both of these hitches share the same hidden crosstube design so that when the hitch is installed the only visible portion is the receiver itself. These hitches are extremely similar with 525lb tongue weight and 3,500lb trailer weight ratings. The main difference between the two hitches is their finish.

  • Recommended Equipment for Towing Small Cargo Trailer With 2020 Ford Escape
    To tow a small rental trailer, you'll need a trailer hitch, a ball mount, trailer ball and a trailer wiring harness. I'd recommend going with a partially concealed hitch like the Draw-Tite Class III, part # C23FR. The hitch crossbar will be concealed behind the crossbar, with the only visible portion of the hitch being the receiver tube and the safety chain hoops. For a trailer wiring harness, I'd recommend the # TE54FR from Tekonsha. U-Haul typically puts surge couplers on their cargo...
