2004 Dodge 1500

Does anyone have a wiring diagram for a 2004 1500 which shows where the tow package wiring harness connects, and therefore where to connect a brake controller?

Thanks,

Bill

Tricia,

I posted the same question on the Power Wagon Forum also. Someone should have an answer.

Bill

Hi, Bill and Tricia,

You probably have an answer on the other forum by now, (and wow, a human that can afford a Power Wagon!), but the connector is under the dash on the left-hand side near the parking brake. A Prodigy controller with the Dodge adapter will plug right into it and require no further wiring. The kneepad under the steering wheel is hinged and folds down with a slight tug.

This is for a late 03, but I think they didn't really change this.

Good luck.

Lamar

Lamar,

Thanks for your reply. We have had a great response on the PowerWagon Forum. The wiring seems to be in several places, with and without an adapter. The new PowerWagon is a great offroad vehicle. Paul Cook at the Kempner Power Wagon Museum has a new PowerWagon and a first hand driving impression. The new PowerWagon is not cheap but neither is a new diesel powered Ford, GMC or Dodge.

My 1973 PowerWagon was not cheap either for 1973.

Bill

Just noticed another dodge tow-vehicle online...lucky for me mine still had the connector harness in the glove box.. I havn't used mine yet... I'm into home fix-up mode at the moment... when I got home with the truck I connected it to the trailer and made a few passes around the neighborhood and noticed a little bounce in the back end... I didn't have this with the Yukon... for the first time I'm considering a weight distribution hitch what's your opinion.

Gotair,

My 1973 W200 PowerWagon rides like an oxcart with its very stiff suspension. If I use a short drawbar, I don't need any weight distribution. If I use the 15" drawbar for the weight distribution hitch, I need the equalizer bars because of the addtional leverage caused by the long drawbar. We have not hooked up the 2004 1500 yet, but again because of the 15" drawbar the equalizer bars will be needed.

I use the long drawbar on the PowerWagon because it gives us more turning room.

Bill
