Mine came with it but the wiring starts at the front fuse box and usually is near the rear of the body wrapped well so moisture can't short it out.

I only have the 3rd brake light working what is wrong with the outher ones


Does your Durango have a trailer hitch/receiver and trailer wiring harness? Is it original equipment or aftermarket? Has your Check Engine or Service Engine Soon light come on recently? If so, read the error code(s) stored in the onboard computer. You may have a physical wiring problem or a circuitry problem. I think your Durango has relays (fuse-protected) associated with your brake lights. Check our owner's manual for the location of these relays and verify that they are working properly. If so, start checking the trailer wiring harness.

How should I prepare my durango to pull a 24 foot travel trailer...what class of hitch, do I need in-board electric trailer brake controls, etc.?


Hi Frank,
I have a Durango 2000 and pull a 24 foot ski boot loaded with equipment. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't try towing anything without the trailer brakes connected. I purchased the Titan Trailer brakes setup and they've never failed me once. The hitch: just make sure you get the right towing capacity for your travel trailer. I have the 5.9 liter engine, which allows up to 6500 pounds of towing capacity. Your owners guide will explain how many based on engine size.
Good Luck, and happy traveling.
Mark

You should not have to rewire anything.
Hitch wires are just "pig-tailed" on to the original vehicle wiring. Just cut off the hitch wires cleanly and tape the cut end.
You have probably burned out the stop and tail lamp fuses also. Read you owner manual for fuse location.

You might be dealing with a grounding problem- better stated, a lack of grounding problem. If your trailer wiring doesn't have a dedicated ground wire, the trailer relies on the hitch continuity to complete a grounding circuit to the towing vehicle. You can test this idea a couple of different ways:
1. Unhook the trailer from the Durango, remove your hitch / ball and wire brush the daylights out of it. It may be corroded badly enough that it keeps your trailer from grounding back to the Durango.
2. When you're hooked up to the trailer and the lights are on, use a piece of wire to touch bare metal on both the trailer and the Durango at the same time. This will provide a grounding path and show whether or not this is a problem.

If this isn't the problem, your vehicle may have a fuse that protects the trailer light circuit. Check your manual for information.

Good luck to you.

I am installing a trailer hitch on my 2001 dodge Durango. I found the wiring for the flashers, but I can't find the wire for the brake lights.


They came with factory installed towing harnesses. No need to install aftermarket stuff. The harness is in the left(driver side} rear panel. All you need to do is plug it in.
