:?: I have a 2001 Rodeo and I am trying to hook up the wiring to tow my motorcycle trailer. All of the information I find from the wiring connector aftermarket indicates that the trailer wire hooks up inside the jack compartment, runs down through the floor (removable rubber grommet) and back out to the trailer. I have been all over the jack compartment and there is no hook-up, nor is there a rubber grommet in the floor of the compartment. Under the frame, near the bumper there is what looks like a hook-up (where the one was on my 1994 Rodeo) but the connector is different. I am not a complete mechanical idiot (close though) - but anyone else have a similar experience? Thanks

HELKP - I am scheduled to take my bike to the track in 2 weeks and without trailer wiring I an essentially screwed. Is there anyone out there with a '01 Rodeo who does any towing?????? If so, where did you find the trailer wiring hook-up? TIA

IIRC, the connector behind the grommet is a female connector. In that case, get out the handy test light and make your own pin-out diagram. Then use standard blade connectors to adapt your aftermarket box to the OEM connector and wrap it up good. You may need to get someone to push the brakes for you, but otherwise should take you less than an hour.

IIRC, the newer Troopers had a groment on the Drivers side(US that is) and when you pulled on the gromment, the plug was right there.

But on the Rodeo, there is a plug, but the wire was tied up very far up. IIRC a few had to really get their hands up there to pull down the wire.

I would def. get the pre-wired wire. Worth it's weight in gold because of the no-splicing.

Good Luck,
Con

Thanks for the suggestions - I eventually gave up and had the dealer find it when the Rodeo went in for the 30,000 service. Even the mechanic who found it said it was jammed waaaaaaaayyyyy up in there and he used a long needle-nose to find it. :) He also knew where to look I guess. He told me that this is pretty common, as not too many people end up towing with their Rodeos for some reason, but when they do - they all call in trying to find that damn wire!

Thanks again
Brian
