My turn signals & hazard lights no longer work. what # relay is for the turn signal?


hazard is #21 - 15A .........cant answer the blinker, i do know that i hear my blinkers click up at the top of my dash inst panel.
and my manual only gives #3 as a left stop/turn trailer tow connector, and #7 as the right stop/turn trailer tow connector. But maybe the clicking is a relay or maybe its built -in the panel, I'm gonna find this out cause now i need to know. thanks for bringing this up, this is the first of reading this problem with the explorer to me.

I just rewired my 20'deckover trailer. I used good quality lcd's. I have the 7 and 4 pin plugs. everything works but the parking lights on both plugs. I have a 2006 f-150 extended cab. bought a test plug...


Did you check the fuse for the trailer tow adapter parking lamps ? This is a separate fuse from the truck's parking lamps.
Fuse #10 is the Trailer Tow parking lamps ( via the trailer tow parking lamp relay ) and this is the same fuse for the trailer tow reversing lamps ( via the trailer tow reversing lamp relay ).

If you did not get an owners manual with your truck ( purchased used ), you can download one from Ford :

Need to tow 1999 F250 about 150 miles home. What


If you have a stick shift, you rent a 2 wheel tow dolly and run the front tires onto it and strap it down. Put the truck in neutral and away you go.
If you have an Automatic you want all 4 wheels on a flatbed or tow trailer. You rent a car hauler trailer and piggyback the truck onto the trailer. A good rental will know the weight and rent you the right trailer.

Wiring a ford explorer sport for a trailer


I can only assume your not the orignal owner/purchaser of this '99 Explorer, so im gonna say no if it doesnt have a factory trailer hitch and towing package. did you have an after market hitch installed on this truck? if not, please dont tell me you plan to use the "cheesy" factory drilled hole in the rear bumper (near/below the license plate area)? BAD IDEA if thats the case, the bumper brackets cant handle much of a load at all, bad idea for them to even put that stupid hole there to begin with. Also, if you see there isnt a "factory" harness, you can go to your local auto parts store and pick 1 up designed specifically for that vehicle within a range of model years sharing that same platform, eg. 1997-2001 model years may all use the same harness set. let me know how it turns out and if this even helped you in any way. Good luck.

I am looking for the wire under the rear of my 99 explorer to hook up the wiring harness for trailer or boat. HELP


From the factory there is an unused plug in the left brake light harness. You can get a tow light cable from Ford that's JUST for that, and its a 4 flat plug on the end. I 'found' mine in the compartment on the left where the jack is. Just peek in there with a light. It was still in the package. Otherwise call Ford, the thing plugs in and you route it down and there's a bracket to hold part of it under the bumper to an existing screw location.
-Cheers.

Pass. side trailer turn and brake lights out 1999 ford explorer


if your vehicle lights are working all the fuses will be good. follow the cable from the towing socket on your vehicle , it will most likely go behind one of the rear lights to connect into your cars system,
check your tester where the cables join and you should find the problem. hope this helps.

Tow plug


I take it the blinkers and brake lights work ok when not hooked up to the trailer? If yes, then the wiring to the tow hitch is not hooked up correctly. How many wires to trailer pig tail connection? U can have up to 7 depending on what you tow. Check to make sure these wires are hooked up from the truck to tow plug correctly: 7 wired---
brown-Rt turn and brake light, yellow-backup, white-ground, blue-electric brake, green-tail running lights, black-battery charger, red-left turn signal and brake light. Let me know if u have something other than 7 wire, I'll get the wiring color and source info for u.
