Recommended Trailer Wiring Harness For 2005 Ford Escape Without Factory Tow Package


I have an 05 Ford Escape. Itdoes have the factory plug and go wiring connector. I put on a Drawtite max 2inch hitch, and installed the add on plug and go coonector. I have no power to the trailer. Do i need additional relays? Will the 4 prong 12v relays you offer for the 07 Ford Escape work?


Expert Reply:

It sounds like your Escape is not equipped with the Tow Package even though the connector is still there.

The correct wiring harness you need for your Escape is the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, part # 118426. This harness will plug into the back of your taillights and the hot lead wire must be run to the positive battery post at the front of the vehicle to power the trailer lights. This harness has a Modulite which protects the tow vehicle from any electrical shorts or any wiring problems.
