Where is the wiring to connect a brake controller on a 2006 jeep liberty with a factory tow option?

My 2006 Liberty, Diesel, Factory Tow Package, had no provision

to "plug in a brake controller". I had to hard wire everything.

Ground & Positive directly to the battery. Found a rubber hole

plug, above the gas pedal, punched 2 seporate holes in that to go

through the firewall. I spliced the brake signal wire into the

output from the brake light switch, that was the 5th. wire from the

front on the switch. (test it before cutting) The Brake Control

wire connection was as follows below: Remove the drivers side (left

kick panel). Locate a white plastic cover, standing vertical,

covering a large harness coming up from the floor. With cover

removed, locate a 14 gauge solid red wire with a white tape marked

"BRAKE". This wire will be loose, with a bare end, not connected to

anything. It may be folded several times and will stretch out 15".

This is the wire that goes to the rear bumper trailer elect.

connection for the "Electric Brakes". Connect this end to your

Brake Controller as per the instructions. True story.
