Also MOPAR has a similar wiring solution
take a look at the instructions --the visual description is better in the MOPAR manual

I just bought a wiring adapter from mopar for this. you take off the rear tail light on the drivers side and unplug it from its harness. the mopar wiring kit i bought plugs into the wiring from the car and has two outputs on it. one for the tail light and a longer one that will run down thru the frame and come out under the bottom by the bumper in just the right spot. i has the plastic clips in just the right spots for snapping into the frame underneath too. took me 5 min to install no splicing required. i got mine off ebay for about $20. super easy! good luck!

I got a jeep wrangler unlimited 2008, glow plug indicator light shows up when the engine is cold but after it has run for sometimes and the engine


Sounds like a diesel. Glow plugs usually need to be warmed up before starting an engine. Smaller diesels either warm up quicker or it is less critical than a tractor trailer. So either your glow plug light is normal letting you know it needs time to warm up or it's letting you know they are weak and need to be replaced. I'd check the owners manual to be sure.

The Left Turn signal is DARK GREEN/RED
The Right Turn signal is WHITE/YELLOW
The Left Brake light is WHITE/ORANGE
The Right Brake is WHITE/RED
The High-Mount Brake lamp is DARK GREEN/WHITE

Now, with all that said, your Jeep should be already equipped with trailer wiring unless you have the cheapest model of Jeep Liberty available. I would check your Owner's Manual on the subject.

Also, your rear lighting is controlled by the Body Control Module (BCM) and the signal and brake inputs/outputs are all transmitted to the Instrument Cluster Module for your lamp-out warning system. Anything you connect to this wiring can adversely affect BCM function or can cause your lamp out warning to malfunction and come on all the time. I would use extreme caution unless you really want to destroy some HIGH DOLLAR electronics in your vehicle.

Need to know how to wire in trailer brakes with a battery on the trailer on a 92 jeep Cherokee Laredo


This is the OEM / Factory set up for trailers from my 1990 FSM. Note that they used a flat-5 connector instead of the typical flat-4 plug that 99% of the known universe uses. I don't know if newer XJ's came with the flat-4... The 7-conductor schematic is typical although you'll find that some agricultural / horse trailers are wired differently (click image for zoom)...

Here's a scan of the "instruction sheet" that came with my utility trailer's flat-4 wiring kit. (Retouched for clarity.)

How to wire a jeep wrangler for towing behind a motorhome using a 7 way rv connector . the jeep has three wires, brown, green and yellow. green and yellow are turn signals, I am having problems with the...


I tow my 2005 Jeep Wrangler behind my motor home. I installed a Jeep trailer towing wiring kit to the rear lights. the bought a long trailer wiring kit and ran it from the front of the Jeep to the Jeep tralier wire plug. Pluged it in and pluged the other end into the motor home trailer light recptacle. I used only four wires plus ground. There is probably a way you could tap into the wiring harnes under the hood but not having a wiring diagram this is the best I could come up with and all lights do work. You can buy a test plug with led lights that plugs in both male and female, real handy for checking connections.
