I have a seven plug for my trailer on the back of my silverado. what do i need to do to hookup my elect brakes on my trailer to the truck


Do you already have a factory installed brake controller, or are you installing an aftermarket brake controller? Also, take time to check owners manual in fuse section for possible circuit already in fuse/power distribution box (under hood) and would require you to just insert recommended fuse.

How do you find out if you have the wires for a tow package? Trying to hook up a trailer with electrical brakes.


The wires would be secured under the rear of the truck. However trailer wiring is only for trailer lighting. Electric trailer brakes require a trailer brake controller.

I have a 2001 Ford Explorer sport tac. I am hooking up a small fishing boat trailer to the truck ( the wiring on the trailer is new and installed correct). The problem: When I turn on the left or right...


You have one of two problems. Either there is a bad ground on your tailer, or the vehicle side trailer connection is bad. The Sport Trac is a 2 wire system and does not require a converter it would only need a 4-flat hardwired in. If you have a 3-2 converter installed good chance that is the problem seeing that the stop and turn wires on the input side would be wired to the same wire, which would explain the turn signals going off when the brake is depressed. If you have a converter installed simply ground the brake lead on the input side of the converter and your problem should be resolved.

Does anybody know how to wire a towbar wiring unit to a ford escort 1999?


Wiring the vehicle for towing is fairly easy. There are a number of good wiring kits available and these should be used, rather than trying to design your own.

All trailers will need brake lights and turn signals as well as tail lights and side marker lights. Most areas require extra marker lights for overwide trailers. Also, most areas have recently required back-up lights for trailers, and most trailer manufacturers have been building trailers with back-up lights for several years.

Additionally, some Class I, most Class II and just about all Class III and IV trailers will have electric brakes. Add to this number an accessories wire, to operate trailer internal equipment or to charge the trailer's battery, and you can have as many as seven wires in the harness.

Determine the equipment on your trailer and buy the wiring kit necessary. The kit will contain all the wires needed, plus a plug adapter set which includes the female plug, mounted on the bumper or hitch, and the male plug, wired into, or plugged into the trailer harness.

When installing the kit, follow the manufacturer's instructions. The color coding of the wires is usually standard throughout the industry. One point to note: some domestic vehicles, and most imported vehicles, have separate turn signals. On most domestic vehicles, the brake lights and rear turn signals operate with the same bulb. For those vehicles without separate turn signals, you can purchase an isolation unit so that the brake lights won't blink whenever the turn signals are operated.
One, final point, the best kits are those with a spring loaded cover on the vehicle mounted socket. This cover prevents dirt and moisture from corroding the terminals. Never let the vehicle socket hang loosely; always mount it securely to the bumper or hitch.

You can check HERE details about this part for Escort and any "graphics".

Hope help.
