Re: Electric Brake Harness
Do you know it the Excursion came with a factory towing package option when new? If it did, it's probably located under the vehicle at the rear where the trailer hitch is (or would be installed). countrycurt0

Ford's factory supplied brake controller harness end can be found loosely stuffed under the dash, usually just above the driver's right leg. A Ford harness has a rectangular shaped connector. Simply connect the brake controller harness connector into the vehicle connector. Zip tie the harness wires to another harness to prevent the wiring from hanging down near your feet. I hope this helps.
Get a simple meter and remove your bulb and see if there is power to the brake light. Prop your brake pedal down so you can check the power. You have to rule out the bulbs first. Check your owners manual for what relay controls your lights that might be a problem as well.
The brakes lights work off a brake light switch mounted very close to the brake pedal. If you have cruise control it will be a duplex switch with two harnesses attached to that switch on the bracket between the steering column and the brake pedal bracket
easiest way is to also buy the wiring adapter almost all elect brake units sell a vehicle specific wire harness that u unplug brake wire harness plug in other harness than plug in brake harness and just connect the wires to elect brake controller eliminates cutting and splicing ur brake harness about $18
You have got 7 pin trailer connector that was included in the optional trailer tow package. This trailer tow package also includes an electric trailer brake wiring provision that terminates at a connector located on top of the large body harness connection under the instrument panel to the left of the break pedal, as well as an electric trailer brake pigtail harness and an instruction card that are stored in the glove box when the vehicle is shipped from the factory. You will need to add an electric brake controller of your choice that will plug-in to the harness and that will also give you power on your auxiliary circuit.
Brake light switch, located on upper brake pedal should be checked, that is most likely your brake light issue, but U say tail lights aren't working, but running lights do, tail lights and running lights I would consider to be the same, so can u clarify that for me? Let me know how the u do w/ brake light switch, and if u have issue w/ tail lights?
