How to Bypass 2018 Ford F-150 12 Volt Power Circuit so it's Active All the Time


I have a 2018 Ford F-150 that came stock with the integrated brake module. I read the previous question regarding steady 12v requires a plug to pull a draw and holding a brake to active trailer? So how do I use a 7 way plug power jack when I can’t get the truck to see the power Jack as a “trailer?”


Expert Reply:

Some of the newer trucks do have a somewhat challenging 12 volt 7-way accessory circuit that requires a few parameters be met before the circuit is active. So one easy way around this is to bypass it all together by using 10 gauge like part # 10-1-1 which we sell by the foot ran through a breaker like part # 9510 to the 1:00 pin of the 7-way and the positive post of your truck battery.
