Theres no market product that will plug into the factory tow harness, so well have to make our own and splice into it. The tow harness is about two or three feet on the frame rail on the drivers side so what well do is take this and extend it down out to the frame rail to match up to it. Today were only going to worry about four pole end, were not going to install the brakes or the hot lead. Were going to install this on the factory ground on the frame
Lets go ahead and cut this off and do our splicing and Ill show where to mount it on the wiring harness. Well go ahead and bound this up with electrical tape to seal off the connections as well as these wires since were not using them to make it look nice. Now we have our finished harness well mount it on the vehicle.
Our first step will be to mount the install bracket. This will mount up here and this hose clamp will mount it in place. Now we need to add the second half of our bracket, mount it right here and our harness will mount in that spot there. You can mount on the top or bottom however you feel like doing it
Now well go ahead and mount our connector. It fits in like so and well just bolt it on from there. Now well go ahead route our wires through the framework and get them into final position to make our connection. Lets go ahead and install our ground right here with this wire. Now were going to splice them to our wire harness. This is part of the tow package mentioned earlier. A lot of vans have this, you just have to visually inspect to see if it does. The best place to look is originally it was tucked up here about two feet back from the end of the frame and it was plugged into a cap.
What we do is unplug the cap and take our wires, cut them to length with a little bit of slack and use quick splices to splice in behind this. One thing to do to make the quick splices last longer is and weather tight is go ahead and split them open and give them a dab of dielectric grease. Weve already tested these wires, most tow packages when they come out to the connector the wires match up. We tested them anyway to be sure, and in this case it will be color for color. Make sure you leave some flexibility in the wires, but other than that all that remains is checking the wires on the outside. This concludes this installation.
Today on our 2006 Ford Van well be installing the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with a 4-pole flat connector part number C56020. To begin our installation well first go ahead and remove both taillights. Each taillight is secured with four screws. Well go ahead and remove the screws and then pop the taillights out of their position. Well go ahead and let them hang there and well come back to that in a minute.Now with both taillights removed well go ahead and open up the rear cargo doors. Here well need to remove the rear threshold.
Today on our 2012 Ford Van well be installing our Tow Ready T1 Connector, part number 118551. Our first step will be removing the taillight housing. To do this, well remove the four torx bit screws that secures the taillight housing in position. Once we remove them, well go ahead and remove the taillight. Then, well move over to the passenger side and repeat the same process. Now with that done, well go ahead and open up the rear cargo doors and get inside.
Today on this 2006 Ford E350 van were going to install part number C56020 from Curt. The first thing we need to do is go ahead and remove the two taillights. Then well disconnect the taillights from the wire harnesses. Now well go ahead and get inside the van. Well open up the doors and remove the panel for the jack storage compartment. Next well remove the threshold.
Today, on this 2011 Ford E350, were going to install part number 118551 from Tow Ready. The first thing were going to do is to go ahead and remove the two tail lights on each side. To remove the wire harness, push down on tabs on the connectors. Well pull both of them off so we can remove the tail light. Then, well go and repeat the same process over on the passenger side. Now, well take the green wire with T-connector and were going to route it through the driver side tail light into the opening on the inside, then run it all the way across underneath the carpet and then run it back through the tail light on the passenger side.
Today on our 2008 Ford Econoline E-350 Van well be installing Tow-Ready Wiring Harness part number 118551. The first thing we need to do is remove the taillights on both the driver and passengers side of the vehicle. Well remove the taillight on the drivers side by removing the four T15 Torx bit screws. Well repeat the same process on the passengers side to remove that taillight. Next, well want to take something to fish our wire through into the interior of the van, through this access hole here. Well be using leftover piece of air tubing but you could use something like a wire hanger at home.
