How to Install the Roadmaster Diode 7 to 6 Wire Coil Kit on a 2019 Jeep Cherokee


Speaker 1: Today on in 2019 Jeep Cherokee, you're going to be taking a look at . I'm going to show you how to install the Roadmaster diode seven wire to six wire flex coil wiring kit, part number RM-15267.This is what our diode kit's gonna look like when it's installed. It's going to be one of five main components and a flat tow setup. The other four, you're going to be your base plate, safety cables, tow bar and your braking system.What the diode kit is going to do for you, it's going to allow you to transfer your light signals from your rv through your Jeep Cherokee so you can safely flat tow it. This diode's going to have an aluminum casing on it that's going to protect it from rust and corrosion. And it's going to tie into your factory tail light wiring.As far as our plug goes here in the front, it's going to be a six pole plug.

It's gonna have a spring loaded lid. It's going to have a lip on it. It'll sink down into that ingroove space to help keep any dirt and debris from getting inside. It's also gonna have a tab here that'll help lock your wiring into place when you have it installed so you don't have an accidental disconnect.Now, even though we only will put a four wire system on, so this plug is going to give you two extra pins, so it's going to give you two additional pins for any added accessories you may want to add. A one of the pins will be used for like a reverse lock out.

If you have this installed on another vehicle or your center pin here is going to be for like a battery charge line kit.As far as the installation goes, it's pretty simple, straightforward installation. You will have to tie into your existing wiring on your vehicle and you're going to have to run your wire from the front of the vehicle, back of the plug to the back of the vehicle to tie into your taillights.Now we've gone over some of the features. Let me show you how I installed it. First thing I want to do is start your insulation. You need find a location where you're going to be mounting your plug on the front of your vehicle.

From there you're going to take your wire, you're going to get 30 foot of four pole wiring, it's going to be brown, yellow, green and white, and we're going to route it from where our plug is going to be mounted to the back of the vehicle.On the back of your plug, you're gonna notice that everything is marked. These for ground TM is going to be your running light signal, which is going to be your brown wire. Ground wire's going to be white, left is going to be yellow, right turn is going to be green. From the front of the vehicle I ran mine through the grill, part of the fascia right here to the back side of my bumper beam. There was a panel that goes on right here.

It's easier if you remove that and you have plenty of room here to work.All I did was ran mine right through . There was a piece of rubber or plastic here, just run right behind it. And then down to the bottom of the car, and you see my four pole wire here. You want to make sure we're staying away from anything hot or moving. Over the top of my suspension here, there's a hard line right here, right over the top of it. That's going to hold it up. Went through my panel, and down inside the frame rail. This hard line, that tied into the hard line.You have a metal panel here, covering all these hard lines. I ran it all the way down underneath the panel, hardline, zip tie it there. Went over the top here, around this bracket, over the top of my rear axle on some existing wiring right here. Over top of these wires, keeping it away from the exhaust. Once I got back to here, I took all my wires and separated them up to here.My yellow wire, brown wire and white wire are going to be going up to my tail light. my green wire, i'm going to leave hanging. we're going to end up routing it across. But first we need to make the connection with our brown wire because we're going to split this wire and this is going to be our jumper that's going to be going over to the passenger side.We're going to be running it over or the other part of it over with our green wire. Next we'll need to remove our taillights. We're going to take a T30 torx bit, remove the two screws underneath our hatch.We'll do the same thing to the other side. Then to get our taillight out we're just going to pull back kind of out and back and pop it loose like that. Unhook your're wiring, pull the red tab down, push on the black tab there. pull it out like that and set it aside.Next you want to go ahead and pull of the coating so you can gain access to your wires. And what I like to do is pull it back as far as I can to make sure I have plenty of room to work. We determined through testing with a test light that our brake light's goign to be our all write wire here on our driver's side and our white wire with our yellow stripe is going to be our running light signal.Now, because we have an amber turn signal, we're going to double our brake light signal as our turn signal and our brake light. Next thing we need to do is we need to get our wiring up. You can use anything really, there's a lot of open space here. What most people have in their garage is a bolt or a nut and string. Basically it's a plumb bob. You just drop it down.It'll come out the bottom like that. We'll take the wires that we're taking up with this, just like that, and pull it back up. Take my white wire and make my ground. We're going to cut this side. I'm actually going to ground it right here. Then on your ring terminal inaudible 00:06:05The we'll take our self tapping screw that comes in our kit and we'll go run it right to the body.You want to make sure when you do your ground, you're on a metal surface and not on any plastic or fiberglass. Now we're going to go ahead and do our brakes and our turn signal. Strip back both ends. Cut Our yellow wire. Then one of our diodes, take our three connectors off. We'll be using the blue spade connectors for this one.Take our diode, we're going to have two on one side, one on the other. Out is always going out towards the plug or towards your light. Then our yellow one will plug into the other side. Next we'll do our running light signal, which was white with a yellow stripe.Going to do the same thing. We're going to strip back both of our wires, I'm going to strip back just a little extra so I can double it over. Again, Blue spade connector on each one of those. Next we're going to be using our yellow spade connector. We're gonna have one of these in our kit. It doesn't matter which diode it's on, we just need it for this particular part. And it doesn't matter if you go on the driver's side or passenger side, you can do this either way.You do the jumper from here over to there or from there over to here. Now our brown wire is going to be our running light signal. As I mentioned, we're going to use it as a jumper, so we're going to be doubling up this side. We're going to strip back both of these put them together. That's where are y'all's spade connector comes in.Right there. And we'll take her extra brown wire, we'll drop it back down because it's going to be run over with our green wire. Next I want to pull the tape off the back. I'm going to stick one right here, pull that one up, I'm going to stick it right to the back of the other one.Then we can reinstall our tail light. So what I did with my green and brown wire, to stay away from my exhaust, so I ran it over top of the bumper beam and then you can see right up here I just ran it right where this existing wiring is all the way across to where my bumper beam comes in here.And this is where I dropped it down. Now one issue we found was, the ground wire's not going to be long enough to get up to our passenger side taillight, so I used the extra white wire that I cut off from my ground, added it on. You're kit does come with a butt connector. What I suggest using is a heat shrink butt connector because this connection is going to be outside of the vehicle, open to the elements. We use heat shrink butt connector, this will help protect that connection from corroding. You can find these on our website, here a etrailer.com, if you don't have any.So now we'll take our green and white wire, we'll get it fed up and then we'll make our connections the same way you did on the driver's side. With the exception, we will not be using a yellow spade connector. So the only thing different from the driver's side or passenger's side is here on our passenger side or gray wire, our white wire with the gray stripe we determined was our running light signal and our white wire with the green stripe is our brake light signal, which again is going to work combined as a brake and turn signal.Now we'll just take these and we're going to mount them in the same place we did on our driver's side. Once you get your diodes installed on your passenger side, reinstall your taillight and we'll test it out and make sure things we're correctly.Taillights, left turn, brake lights, right turn. That'll do for look at and installation of the Roadmaster diode seven wire to six wire flexicoil wiring kit, part number RM-15267, on our 2019 Jeep Cherokee.
