Correct Trailer Wiring Harness for 2012 Ford Escape Without Factory Tow Package


Hi, looking to purchase a wiring kit for a 2012 Ford Escape that did not come with a tow package. Can you please identify the proper kit i would need. Thanks in advance.


Expert Reply:

We have the exact trailer wiring harness you need for your 2012 Ford Escape without the factory tow package. The best option for your vehicle is the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118551.

This harness is the best for your Escape because it has the highest amp rating among wiring harnesses for your vehicle, so it gives you the best prevention against potential shorts. We have also found the Tekonsha brand to be the most consistently reliable wiring harnesses.

To mount it you can use Brophy Mounting Bracket for 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # BK4F with No-Drill Mount for Electrical Mounting Bracket - Short # 18140 or Long # 18136.

Additionally, to prevent corrosion on your 4-way, as well as increase its durability and extend its lifespan I highly recommend using Dielectric Grease for Electrical Connectors # 11755.
