Just got a new 2013 Caravan Crew Plus with the factory hitch and 7/4 harness installed. I need to install a brake controller, but have no idea where to start. I figured the wiring would already be in the cabin. Under the hood I found where the harness connects to and there is a light blue wire coiled up (about 5 feet in length )
Anyone have a clue on how to connect the brake controller?

look at web sites of controllers, they have wiring diagram. I have one installed I put in my self by following the diagrams. run 2 wires from the battery to the rear. I ran 10gage as that's what was recommended. I put 2 auto fuses just after the battery on the pillar. '

Everything is already wired and working. Pulled my trailer to test and the electric breaks are needed to aid in stopping lol. Just need to connect the brake controller. You think when it's all factory installed, they would run the wires back into the van to connect the controller...
I posted a past thread about towing with a minivan but no one responded to it! But in the future, I might tow an RV with my 2005 D.G.C. SXT with tow package. I plan on getting this electronic Proportional Brake Controller - http://www.etrailer.com/Brake-Contro...eid=2005106313
They say Tekonsha's are the best but they make no custom plug in harness for the latest Dodge / Chrysler minivans. I think like on my 2005 SXT, you have to splice a wire in your brake pedal switch. I know the 2ndary brake wire [to tap to] on my 2005 SXT from looking at the Service Manual.
This is the right wiring diagram for Dodge Caravan 2013 with Factory tow package installed with the blue wire coiled on the motor compartment.
I order the parts already I will install mine in a week i will post the pictures
Thanks for the information in this thread (posts/pics from LeonardoKogan and links to etrailer videos). I was able to successfully install my Hopkins brake controller to my 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan R/T with tow package.
I also found the brake signal wire to be white with green stripe.
