Review of Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring C56154


Today we're going to review part number C56154. This is the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with the 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector. This is a custom fit part number. It is designed to fit the Dodge Journey with the LED taillights starting in 2011. On any custom fit product what I'd recommend is to go to our website. Go to our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it will show you if this part will work on your application. This part does include everything shown here on the table. Then I'm going to go through all these pieces to show you where they go.

Basically this part will provide a 4-way flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights. Does connect quickly and easily. Basically you locate the connection points behind your taillights at the rear of the vehicle. Plug in these T-Connectors, run a hot power lead to your car battery and these should be ready to go. Now it does include this taillight converter which ensures your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailer. It is a power module which will connect directly to the battery to avoid overloading your vehicle's electrical system.

This module is constructed using the SMT or Surface Mount Technology. Give you consistent reliable performance and it will maximize your trailer light yield and intensity while producing minimal heat. It will also ensure nice superior operation in rough road conditions. Does include this nice dust cap that when you're not using your 4-way you can just attach this to your 4-way connector and then just put your dust cap right over there. Protects your terminals when you're not using it. Now the specs on this wiring harness.

The maximum amperage for the stop and turn lights circuit is 3 amps per circuit. For the taillights it's 6 amps per circuit. Just briefly here how this will connect. Now it does give you a nice set of instructions which are very detailed. Gives you some nice pictures of where your location points are.

Briefly just to go over it real quick here. What you want to do is go to the back of your vehicle. Then what you'll do is access the connectors behind your taillights and what you'll do is start with this set of connectors here with the red and the brown wire on it. This is for the drivers side. You'll go behind the taillight on the drivers side, plug in these T-Connectors. You have a single white wire with a eyelet on it. That's for your ground so you do need to find a good clean ground to attach this to. If you need to make one they do include a grounding screw. Now you'll take the other set of wire. This is the green wire. This is for the passenger side. You'll run this over to the passenger side. Connect these T-Connectors behind the taillight over there. Then what you want to do is this converter, you want to attach this down. They give you a double faced tape that you can stick to that. Find a nice clean flat spot to attach this to so it doesn't move around. Then you'll run this bonded wire out to the back so your 4-way will connect in the back. When you're not using it you can store this in the back of your vehicle. Now the last connection is going to be your power wire. You'll see this black wire coming out of the converter. This will actually run to the battery in your vehicle. The way you do that is they give you a length of wire. What you do is take one end, the included butt connector, put it on your wire. Connect your power wire out of your module to that and then you'll run this length of wire all the way to the front where your battery is. They do include some zip ties to take up any slack in this wire. Once you have it run to the front you'll take the end that's at the front, go ahead and take the other butt connector, that will be attached. Then before you attach it to the battery what you want to do is you're going to use this end line fuse holder. You go ahead and attach that to that wire and then once that's all attached on the other end of this fuse holder you'll take the eyelet connector, attach that. Attach this to the positive post of your battery and then all you'll need to do now is pop open your end line fuse holder, take your included 10 amp fuse. Go ahead and put it in the fuse holder just like that, put your cap on it. Then after that since everything's hooked up, your system will be ready to go. You can use your 4-way at the back of your vehicle to supply the lights on your trailer. That should do it for the review on part number C56154, the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with the 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector. .
