Question about 2004 Ford F150
Ford f150 2005 trailer lights
Posted by Anonymous on
7way- black is 12volt (power), brown, running lights, yellow is left turn signal and stop light, green is right turn signal and stop light, white is ground, blue is brakes, and orange is aux power (can be back up lights, if trailer equipped w/ them). 6way is the same, minus orange wire. I have run into some variations to the above color codes (brown, yellow and green only-sometimes these 3 are different than stated, but only mixed as that group, as to what they control- example would be green is running lights, brown and yellow are turn signal and stop lights, the others should be as stated), if you have any trouble with things not working properly, it may be due to these variations, although the above are pretty standard. If you have an ohm meter you can check as you go (check for power at black wire- should be constant 12v, turn on turn signal and check for power-it will fluctuate from approx. 12 volts to 0 volts as the signal power pulses in the wire) hit the brakes, blue wire should show power, etc. Let me know if you need more help as you go.

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.

SOURCE: Trailer wiring
you have to purchase a converter box with 5 wires, red, yellow, green and brown. this is because your turn signal is seperate from you parking and brake light bulb. you have to wire it straight in behind the connector.your basically converting two wires ( brakes and parking) to one wire (tailights) 5 wire to 4 wire.

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.
