Quickly and easily install a 4-way trailer connector on your Ford Explorer with this custom wiring harness. T-One connector plugs directly into existing wiring. Powered ModuLite reduces strain on wiring system.
This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your Ford Explorer's wiring harness, which is located behind the driver's-side and passenger's-side tail lights. You will have to remove the tail light assemblies to access this harness.
Once you've plugged in the T-connector, run the hot lead up to your car battery. Connect the lead to the included fuse holder, and then connect the fuse holder to the positive terminal on your battery and insert the provided fuse.
Once installation is complete, the 4-way flat connector will be stowed beneath your Ford Explorer, near the trailer hitch. A mounting bracket (sold separately) is recommended to keep the connector secure.
It is recommended that you use a small amount of grease on all electrical connections - the plugs on your automobile and the 4-pole connector itself - to help prevent corrosion.
A ModuLite power module is built into this T-One connector. Because most trailers run on a two-wire system - wherein the brake and turn signals are carried on one wire - the separate brake and turn signals from your Ford Explorer's three-wire system need to be combined so they are compatible with the wiring system of your trailer. This power module functions as a tail light converter to combine the brake and turn signal functions of your automobile so that they run on one wire to properly activate your trailer's tail lights. Note: This will not affect how the tail lights on your Ford Explorer operate.
With a ModuLite, your trailer's lights will be powered without overloading your Ford Explorer's electrical system. Because the module draws power directly from your car's battery and bypasses the electrical routes that are used by a basic wiring harness, there is virtually no draw on your tail light circuits.

I had looked several different placing including my local dealership to find this harness and no one had been able to help. I found the etrailer website while surfing and they appeared to have exactly what I needed. I ordered the item and received it within 2 days and was the easiest installation I have ever seen. It worked perfectly and took me less than 20 minutes to install. Thank you etrailer.com.23288

The website is well-organized. I found the parts I needed right away. And I was able to make a purchase immediately. The parts arrived just a couple of days later. They are of good quality sent at a reasonable expense, and were easy to install with directions available right on the website. All of this after I had checked two local sources who did not stock the items I needed. Shopping with etrailer.com is the better way.17631
