Hi, your stop and turn signals share the same filaments, so you need 4 conductors:
right turn/stop=orange/light blue
left turn/stop=light green/orange
tail/park/marker=brown
ground=black

Thanks for using FixYa.

A 4 way flat kit will work. The speacial harnesses just allow you to "tap" into the lighting circuits without having to cut and splice wires together.

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.

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 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.

    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.

    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.

    Installing a 7-pin trailer towing recptical on a 1991 Ford F150.


    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.

    Trailer wiring for 2005 Ford Escape without factory tow package


    I had the sam problem with my '02 escape when I installed the hitch. I changed the turn signal relay under the dashboard on the drivers side of the dash with one from an escape that had a tow package(one was blue and the other was yellow...). worked fine for me after that. Don't know if it changed later...
