SOURCE: Looking for a wiring diagram for a 2006 Ford Expedition

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.

SOURCE: 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.

Check owners manual for fuse locations and check them first. Some vehicles have seperate trailer light fuses.

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.

SOURCE: how do you wire trailer lights and break lights on

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.

What color are the wires for trailer brakes on a 2004 Ford E350 and where are they located


trailer brake wires are normally piggybacked from the rear tail lights. Check either side and look for extra wires at a light assembly

Where is the trailer light fuse control on a 2007 Ford Expedition


As trailer lights are run off the existing wiring of the vehicle then those vehicle fuses control the wires and circuits for the trailer. If you have a problem with trailer lights then check the wires and connections in the trailer plugs.

1998 Ford Explorer has factory trailer wiring ... won't light the left turn signal light on trailer or left brake light ... bulbs are good, all lights work when vehicle lights are on except the left...


Use this as a guide and a 12 volt test light, or multimeter to see if power at proper terminal from truck. If power there, then connection at trailer plug, or wiring from there to tail lights on trailer is faulty.motor1258_22.jpg

2006 Ford F250 Super Duty no running light for trailer and keep blowing a fuse


have seen this a few times on fords. I'm assuming it only blows when you use the trailer. then the only cause can be a shorted wire somewhere between the trailer connector to the lights at the rear of the trailer or maybe the light assembly is bad. If the problem happens when you have no trailer hooked up then inspect the trunk harness. and wiring under the bumpers. Something 12v got pinched.
