I know this post is old but in the interests of helping others ....


I installed the 7T4Z-15A416-B on a 2011 Ford Flex that has LED lights as standard.

I mounted the box on the LH side, inside the rear bumper. Since the box is outside the car, I gooped up the box with 'liquid tape' to seal the wire exits from the plastic casing.

The 4 color ribbon cable goes to the receiver area. I threaded mine through the hitch itself and used cable ties to limit vibration/abrasion.

I spliced the signal cables for LH turn indicator and tail/stop lights into the LH light wiring harness behind the rear lights.

The RH turn indicator has a longer wire which I threaded through the hitch and spliced it into the RH light cluster harness behind the RH light.

I connected the red +ve wire to the 12V feed to the 20A accessory socket in the rear cargo area. I put a small **** in a blanking grommet to bring the wire inside the vehicle.

The earth required drilling a hole into the body behind the LH light. i coated this also with 'liquid tape' for corrosion protection.

The Stop cable (which puzzled me for the longest time) went unused so covered it with insulating tape.

The harness works perfectly. The only caveat is the accessory outlet has to be powered up i.e. the ignition on.

I believe you can look up the manufacturer of the trailer plug kit and find the wiring diagram there. On alot of the trailer plug kits, they have pics and diagrams in the package. The 7 pin plug (truck side) is available with the pig tail set up that plugs directly into the wiring harness for the lights. Then all you would have to worry about is the 2 wires for the electric brakes.

SOURCE: looking for 1996 ford mustang wiring diagram for stereo

things to consider:
Does it have a factory amplifier?
Is the factory harness still present?
Does it still have the speakers present?

You are going to only have a certain amount of wires... If the factory harness is still there you can simply purchase an aftermarket or just look at one in a local store on what wires are what.

you would have your:
gray and gray w/ black
purple and purple w/ black
green and green w/ black
white and white w/ black
these are normally used as an after market clip on harness for that factory wiring. (left front, right front, left rear, right rear)

Obviously your going to have the constant (yellow), ignition (red) and the ground (Black);
so the others would be either a remote (amp or power antenna) usually white with blue strip and dimmer normally orange for the after market harness, and the others will be the speakers.

What you COULD try is using a 9v battery and picking up the wires that are solid and striped and touching them to the 9v battery.

When you find the two that make that speaker make a popping sound you have found that speaker.
Once you have found the speaker that pops, you should be able to take it out and look at the color of the wires to make sure you will have the pos and neg for each speaker correctly set.

You dont want some speakers being in phase while other are out of phase. if so the sound wont be right.

Hey Bryan

I've got them for Six and Four wire plugs

Six wire plugs:

Horse, stock or utility trailers:
White = Ground - GD
Yellow = Left turn/Brake -LT
Green = Right turn Brake -RT
Brown = Tail and clearance lights - TM
Red or Black (not both) = Battery, aux power - A
Blue = Electric Brakes - S

Recreational Vehicle: (color, use, plug mark)
White = Ground - GD
Yellow = Not used -
Brown = Right turn Brake - RT
Green = Tail and clearance lights -TM
Black = Battery, aux power - A
Red = Left turn/Brake - LT
Blue = Electric Brakes - S


Four wire plugs:
White = Ground
Yellow = Left turn/Brake
Green = Right turn Brake
Brown = Tail and clearance lights


Ground should be 10ga.
Others 14 ga

Best regards
Mike

Wire trailer brake controler on ford pickup


There usually is an open harness plug under the dash. When you buy a brake controller, the instructions should come with it. The better units will have a pigtail which will plug right into the other half of the open harness plug.

If the kit you have has the pigtail connector, but loose wires needing to be connected, see if the color of the wires match those on the open connector. Then match the color of each wire.

Some years of trucks will have a heavy duty flasher to install in the Powerbox to accommodate the extra trailer lights.

How do I wire a harness for a trailer on my 2001 ford explorer


I would strongly suggest going to your local tractor supply or other trailer store to order a T-harness. Thes plug directly into the original wiring harness of your vehicle and avoids having to cut into your harness. It is ALOT easier and only takes a couple of minutes to install. The instructions for the T-harness are very easy to follow. This is the way to go.

2004 Chrys Concorde, new utility trailer, tail light converter. Problem: There is output from conv box in yellow wire, when turn signal is on, but when it is connected to the trailer harness, no output...


Your vehicle CANNOT be wired for a trailer without using the converter box. The only vehicles that do not require a converter box are the vehicles that use the stop lamp bulb as a turn signal. Your vehicle is equipped with SEPARATE stop lamp and turn signal bulbs.

To make the converter box work correctly, it must be wired according to the instructions to BOTH the stop lamps AND the turn lamps. The tail (or PARK) lamps DO NOT go through the converter box.
Your trailer uses the SAME bulb for stop and turn - THIS is the reason you need a converter.

The wire color for both your LEFT TURN and your RIGHT TURN are LIGHT GREEN/TAN. Although the wire colors are the same at the bulb sockets, these are SEPARATE circuits and must be wired to the correct wire at the converter box. (LEFT and RIGHT) The converter box will have an INPUT connection for EACH of these.

The wire color for your STOP lamps is WHITE/TAN. The converter box should only have one INPUT wire that connects to this. It doesn't matter which side of the vehicle you connect this wire to. All of the stop lamps are on the same circuit.

The converter will then have only one wire for LEFT turn and stop (usually YELLOW) this is the wire that needs to go to your trailer connector for left turn and stop.
The RIGHT turn and stop will most likely be GREEN coming out of the converter.

Is there an easy way to get wiring for a trailer on a 2010 Ford Escape?


Your local auto parts store should have a wiring harness that will clip in to your existing harness. Modern vehicles mostly have a harness coupler under the back of the vehicle you can unplug and plug in the trailer harness without having to cut anything, making the installation very quick and painless. The harness plug may have a plastic lock which you will need to release to separate the two sides of the harness. I recommend putting dielectric grease in both sides of the trailer harness to prevent corrosion from knocking out your trailer lights. The trailer harness kit will have instructions and a diagram to guide you.
Hope this helps and please rate my solution!!

How do you wire trailer lights and break lights on a horse trailer for a 2010 Ford F150


These diagrams should help to assist you, and a test light should be used to verify each wire from the vehicle wiring harness. The vehicle should have a stock wire connector for installing a trailer wire connector like the one that is in the image and the link below and it will not require tapping into the vehicle wiring harness. Let me know if you require any further assistance.

How do i install a wiring harness for a trailer on a 2002 ford focus wagon?


  • Loosen and pull back the carpeting in the back of the trunk behind the taillights.
  • Step 2 Remove the plastic wingnuts that secure the taillight to the vehicle's body.
  • Step 3 Separate the taillights from the vehicle's body, but do not disconnect the wiring.
    Installing the Connector
  • Step 1 Examine the wiring harness on each taillight. There will be a plastic connector on each side that must be separated to insert the wiring harness connector.
  • Step 2 Thread the trailer wiring connectors through holes in the body behind each taillight. Follow the instructions provided with the connector to determine which connector belongs in which side of the vehicle.
  • Step 3 Insert the wiring connectors into the vehicle's wiring harness.
    Reinstalling the Taillights
  • Step 1 Push the taillights into position against the body and reinstall the plastic wingnuts that secure them. Be careful not to crush the wiring.
  • Step 2 Route the trailer wiring underneath the carpeting in the trunk, so that the trailer connector can extend out between the trunk lid and bumper when in use, and be tucked into the trunk when not in use.
  • Step 3 Reposition the trunk carpet over the taillight housing.

    Towing light problem on wiring them up.


    It looks like there could be a service bulletin to fix this.

    TO: ALL TOYOTA DEALER PRINCIPALS,
    SERVICE MANAGERS, PARTS MANAGERS
    SUBJECT: SPECIAL SERVICE CAMPAIGN 10H
    (2000 TUNDRA AND 1999 - 2000 TACOMA TRAILER TOWING WIRE HARNESS
    CONVERTER REPLACEMENT)
    Toyota will initiate a Special Service Campaign to replace the Toyota Trailer Towing Wire Harness
    Converter (converter) on certain 2000 model year Tundra and 1999 - 2000 model year Tacoma
    vehicles equipped with a genuine Toyota Trailer Towing Hitch or Bumper Hitch. This accessory
    is included in the Towing Hitch Kit installed at ports (PIO) and by dealers (***); it is also sold by
    dealers as an over-the-counter or service part.
    An electrical short or open circuit can cause a fault in the genuine Toyota Trailer Towing Wire Harness
    Converter (converter). This can cause a failure of the converter, and if a trailer is being towed at the time,
    non-operation of the trailer lights. In limited cases, the converter housing could become heat-deformed.
    In the case of the Tundra, the circuitry utilized in the converter was inadequate to properly manage
    vehicle and/or trailer-side voltage spikes. If the converter is exposed to a voltage spike it may cause an
    electrical short or open circuit within the converter.
    As for the Tacoma, due to deficient waterproofing and improper installation location of the converter,
    which is mounted in the lower portion of the taillight cavity of the vehicle, an electrical short circuit will
    occur if water enters the converter housing.
    The following vital information is provided to inform you and your staff of the campaign notification
    schedule and your degree of involvement.
    1. Owner Notification Letter Mailing Date
    The owner notification will be conducted in two phases:
    • The first phase will be launched in late August and involve vehicles equipped with port
    installed (PIO) genuine Toyota Towing Hitch Kits.
    • The remaining vehicle owners, whose vehicles may be equipped with a dealer installed (***)
    genuine Toyota Trailer Towing Wire Harness Converter, will be notified in the second phase
    to be launched in early September.
    We have attached copies of the owner notification letters for your reference.
    If you are contacted by an owner of an involved vehicle, who has not yet received a notification,
    please verify eligibility through TDN or TIS, inspect the vehicle to assure it is equipped with the
    affected part, and perform repairs as outlined in the attached Technical Instructions.
