The Control Unit and Harness are strongly recommended if you are going to tow anything that requires lights/brake controls. FYI, you don't have to get Honda control units, most businesses that sell trailers sell various name brands and can do the wiring for you. Anyway, the wiring for the taillights and brakes lights of the vehicle are not strong enough to carry enough power to supply the electrical on a trailer (very dim-could cause a short). The Harness connects a power source (battery) to the trailer wires. The Control Unit is connected to the vehicle wiring as well as the Harness. When you step on the brake pedal, the Control Unit senses it and allows the power to go to the proper wiring on the trailer directly from the power source, therefore you will have brighter lights on the trailer. The same for parking and turn indicators. This is worth the money. I have this set up on my 2003 Odyssey.

Where is the control unit for the towing hitch on a 1999 odyssey located?

I;m not sure what you mean my 'control unit', but the trailer wiring connects into a connector behind the trim on the driver's side rear panel (where the jack is and the storage net for the head rests).

How do you set up a towing wiring harness for a 1994 suburban which includes a towing package?

Have you looked under the vehicle? I'd be surprised if the wiring harness wasn't already there and taped up under the vehicle. Barring that, most business that sell and install trailer hitches will also install trailer wiring harnesses. If you're a DIY, go to the local auto parts store and ask. They probably have the wiring harness you need all setup to plug into the manufacturer's wiring harness.

How do you install a wiring harness for a trailer hitch on a 1999 Jeep Cherokee?

Step 1) Purchase the wiring harness from a Jeep dealer. About $75 Step 2) Remove the interior cover inside the right rear cargo area below the R.R. window. Step 3) There should be an open harness plug that matches the open end of the harness you -purchased. Plug your new harness into this plug. Step 4) Remove the rubber body plug from the floor pan inside the fender area and fish the harness through the hole and seat the harness grommet in the hole in the floor. Step 5) Route the harness under the vehicle above the hitch area in order to keep it from sagging or getting hooked on grass and debris while driving. Step 6) Attach the plug to the hitch with bracket supplied with the hitch. Hopefully you already have the towing package on your Jeep so you can disengage the OverDrive when towing a trailer. If not, you can use the shift lever to operate in 3rd gear and not in OD. The towing package also includes a transmission cooler in order to extend the life of the transmission due to the heat generated by towing. Good luck!
