Cold Side Brake Switch Wire Location and Tow Bar Wiring for a 2013 Ford Explorer V6 with LED Lights

Question:

Will this work with the 2013 Explorer XLT V-6 with diode rear lights? P.S. Im having to trouble finding the cold side brake wire on this vehicle! Not like the brake pedal switch that was on my 2004 Explorer

I will be happy to help you out. First, for the brake switch wire, it should be a purple and white wire at the brake switch. Use a circuit tester such as # 40376 to confirm.

The 6-diode kit # 154-792-118158 can be used on vehicles that have LED lights. The diodes in the kit act as a gate only letting power from 2 separate sources only go one way along the wire to prevent back feeding. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you.

I checked the owners manual for the 2013 Ford Explorer and there are no fuses that have to be pulled to flat tow it behind a motor home so you would not need a fuse bypass such as # RM76512. This FuseMaster is for vehicles which must have two ATM mini or two ATM micro fuses (not included) removed.
