Thanks Ken, actually I have already bought the 56029431AH controller (but thank you) which is how I have discovered that I only have one connector. I have now bought the T-Tap connectors and have located the bundle of wires that you show in your picture. BUT I notice that there are a few different white wires with green and blue stripes with varying shades of green and blue. How did you know which ones to use? Did you discover some way of determining which ones were the correct ones? I have connected the 'B' connector B3 terminal and I get power to the controller now but all I get is a CF error which I am understanding is because the B1 and B2 aren't connected. Thanks again for all of your help on this matter.

I am following your directions and I have some questions. I have found the wire bundle but I am confused about which wires (the white ones) I see a couple of white wires that have a green or blue line on them but are different shades of green and blue. How do you know which ones to use? Thanks again for all of your help regarding this matter.

Someone else asked a similar question. When I unwrapped my harness, I discovered additional wrappings where several W/B and W/G wires came together. When I unwrapped those bundles, I confirmed they were all soldered together in a junction. Same is true for the pink/G wire except that junction was higher up in the harness. It really didn't matter which wire I picked of the respective color. I would look for the wrapped junctions to confirm, but I would not unwrap them. Dodge used a water-proof electrical tape that is tough to get off and put back on. I see no need to compromise the protect if not necessary.

I have suggested that the w/b and w/g that lead to the OBDC-II port not be used, but that is me being cautious. It may not matter which pair you select for the ITBM.

Good luck.

Ken,

I found the wires exactly as you described them with the tape on them and put my wire leads on those. I also found multiple pink/green wires. I stripped a little of the coating off of one of them and put a voltmeter on it at which time I got 12v after turning the key on which is exactly what I wanted so I taped it all up and put it all back together. Did a test tow and all works perfectly. Thank you so much for your tutorial and you time.

Great post. I just spoke to my local dealer and they told me they don't order them. The rep. told me they get them from a local parts store. ??

The current part number for the Integrated Trailer Brake Module (ITBM) is 56029431AH. Unless Dodge has redesigned the integrated brake controller for 2012, this part should be correct. A bezel is also needed to match the dash color and part numbers vary by color choice. Any Dodge dealer can order these parts for you or you can go to one of many internet parts sites.
