Which Wiring Harness Fits a 2005 Ford Escape?  


Hi, I have a 2005 Ford escape with a v4 motor, 4fwd. The 2005 ford came with a trailer wiring. I am looking for a adapter that fit the image below that Connect to a 4 flat wiring for a trailer.

The plug you have pictured will actually not be the one for a wiring harness on your 2005 Ford Escape. If the vehicle was indeed pre-wired from Ford, there will be a connection point located behind the bumper near the driver's side tail light. It is pretty well hidden and can be a bit of a pain to get to, so you will have to feel around to find it. It is typically capped off as well, so that will need to be removed. I included an install video we did of the Hopkins # 40455 being installed on an 05 Escape that shows the basic location of the port you are looking for.

If that port is not there, you will need to go with the Tekonsha # 118426. I included an install video of this as well if needed.
