I am going to install an aftermarket rear lightbar and am wondering if there is a conveniently placed wire that is on for the turn signal by not the brake light and vice versa? Would it be easier to run a wire the length of the car from the front signals?

I don't have your answer, but double posting is frowned upon in most forums. You can edit your original post if you have a more complex question. Now I hope someone does know your answer, because it is a very good question.

Because stuff like this is controlled by a computer, you will likely have to run a long wire from someplace, unless Chrysler put a near location for their OEM wiring harness.

In my previous van, Honda Odyssey, I branched off the trailer light wires.

Does the hybrid have a trailer wiring harness? My dad says you're not supposed to tow whit it.

If you don't have a tow package, the downtown job would be to wire in a trailer wiring harness and use it to power the lights:

If it's a low amp draw, take off the back light assembly and use a multimeter to probe for the correct wires. Then splice in. I'm not a huge fan of that because it's more load on the wiring that it was designed for and I don't know how much overhead there is.

They do not recommend you tow with it, but plenty of people have installed the hitch for bike racks and cargo carriers. I can't answer if there is a connection for the harness or not. There is an OEM harness for a trailer for the gas version.

Something like this would do the trick. Looks like it pulls the power directly from the battery and plugs inline with the left and right tail light connectors.

But note the compatibility for that item...Hybrid is not mentioned. Probably because the wiring harness is different.

I think it would work. It plugs into the tail light. I expect that they use the same light across models. This confirms it.

I don't own a hybrid, but will drop this note: I used the Tekonsha branded harness and it worked fine, it was a lot cheaper than the Curt. Also idk if it's still the case eTrailier's pricing was a touch on the high side. Usually will buy from them if they are close as they have AWESOME customer service, but this time around they were a good $100+ higher.

So, I ordered from a pretty sketch website StreetSideAuto.com, the items arrived as ordered and within 3 days.

Your best bet is non splicing and pin into the rear tail light connectors . Easily removable and won’t show if anything electrical goes afoot for warranty claims ... splicing is always a void warranty and easily identified .
