Wiring 2005 Jeep TJ To Have 7 Way Connection


How do I plug the wiring lead that is included, into my jeep? There doesnt seem to be a socked to match the lead that was included.


Expert Reply:

It looks like you've got the # PK11933 that connects your Jeep to the Pollack # HM40975 , which will only work if your Jeep TJ came with the factory 7 way connector. If your Jeep TJ has the factory towing package with a 4 way connector you'll be able to use the Hopkins # 37185 to connect to the existing 4 way and add a 7 way connection on your Jeep TJ.

Using the adapter # 37185 does not by itself provide additional circuit connections for brakes, 12V power and reverse lights, but it DOES allow the 4-pole lighting signals to be conveyed in the 7-way connector format. If you have 4-pole wiring you wish to convert to a fully-functional 7-way (WITH the additional circuits for trailer brakes, 12V power and reverse lights) then instead of # 37185 use kit # ETBC7 which includes part # 37185 along with the wiring and other items needed to have a 7-way wiring setup.
