Question Trailer harness not working on new 2014

My new 2014 GC has the towing package. Today I go to tow my boat and the lights aren't working on the trailer. I figured it was an issue with the trailer's wiring and not my Jeep. So I did some tests using a multimeter and it's the Jeep. The harness (both 4 pin and 7 pin) aren't working. What could be the cause?

Not activated. It should have been as a factory install, but somebody might have missed it. I think it will take a dealer visit.

Re: Trailer harness not working on new 2014

sounds like the factory missed it... your dealer should activate it for you at no charge.

Re: Trailer harness not working on new 2014

Did you try checking the fuses before a dealer trip?

I did indeed check the fuse. It's good. So yeah the feature must not be activated.

I have an appointment on Wednesday to get it fixed.

Thanks again guys for your help
