1999 Ford Questions and Answers


  • Is the Titan Disc Brake Kit # T4843400 Good For a Salt Water Boat Trailer
  • In the Titan disc brake kit, # T4843400, the hubs and calipers are silver cad plated, the actuator is zinc-coated, and the lines are all steel. This is not an ideal set up for a salt water application. The best option would be to go with stainless steel parts. You could start with Kodiak disc brakes, # K2R35S. For 2 axles you would need 2 sets. They fit 14 inch and larger wheels and will fit a hub with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. The rotors are the over the hub style. The actuator...

  • Camper Tie-Down Recommendation for 1999 Ford F-250 with 8 Ft Bed
  • In order to determine which camper tie downs will fit your F-250, I will need to know what type of hitch is installed on your truck and whether or not there is a board or step underneath the truck bed. I have included the link to all of the camper tie-downs that are available for the 1999 F-250. From there you can choose your vehicle style and your options will be displayed. If your 1999 Ford F-250 is equipped with a factory installed hitch and does not have a board or step underneath...

  • Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller, Part # 90195, Displays Message Output Shorted No Brakes
  • If your Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller, part # 90195, displays the error message OUTPUT SHORTED NO BRAKES, the potential causes are a short in the brake output circuit somewhere between the brake controller and the trailer brake assemblies, or a shorted or damaged brake magnet. Since you do have power reaching the trailer brake assemblies the issue is probably within them, rather than within the tow vehicle wiring, but if you wish you can still test the vehicle 7-way connector for a correct...

  • Where To Install Fuses and Relays From Tow Ready Wiring Harness # 118243 on 1999 Ford F-250 SD
  • On your 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty the two boxes in the engine compartment are the power distribution box (larger box) and the trailer tow relay block (smaller box) which is attached to it. Open the covers to access the relays and fuses. You will need to look in your owners manual and locate the Trailer Tow Electric Brake and Trailer Tow Battery Charge fuse locations and insert the 30 amp maxi-fuses (provided) into them. Also in the owners manual locate the Trailer Tow Backup Lamp...

  • Wiring Harness Connection Location On a 1999 Ford Explorer Limited with Tow Package
  • I see exactly what you are talking about. I checked the stock we have on hand and all of the # 118241 wiring harnesses have the pins in the 3 O-clock and 10 O-clock positions with the locking tab up. I then spoke with our installation tech and he feels that the directions for the 1999 Explorer are wrong. He says that he remembers having to use the connector that is on the drivers side and that the picture on our web page was taken following the manufacturers directions and never got corrected....

  • 7-Way OEM Replacement Trailer Wiring Harness for a 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • You can use the Curt T-Connector Wiring Harness, # C55243, or the Tow Ready Replacement 7-Way Harness, # 118243, on your 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty. These are basically the same item for your truck made by different manufacturers. If the price point of the Curt harness is more appealing to you, then there is no reason why you cannot use that harness. There is one thing you will want to keep in mind when installing either of these harnesses, do not forget to install the relays and...

  • Parts Needed to Replace Leaf Springs, Shackles and Hangers on a Tandem Axle Trailer with 3 Inch Axle
  • The # PR4 springs are not designed for use with a 3 inch Dexter axle. A 3 inch axle is rated for at least 6,000 pounds so you would need to go with the # PR6, 6-Leaf Double-Eye Spring. The PR6 spring has a 24-7/8 inch length and will have the same axle spacing, 34 inches, as the PR4 spring that you referred to. You should check your current axle spacing or wheel and tire size to be sure the 34 inch spacing will provide clearance to mount the tires on your trailer. To install the PR6...

  • Connecting Stowmaster Tow Bar # RM-501 to Steel Bumper on Jeep Wrangler
  • Tow bars from RoadMaster and Blue Ox, such as the RoadMaster StowMaster # RM-501, are designed to mate directly to base plates from the same manufacturer. Base plates usually mount to the vehicle frame. There are adapters available to use a tow bar from one company with base plates from another, but this arrangement costs more and increases the complexity of the set-up. Also, not every possible parts combination is covered by the available adapters. Jeep Wranglers can be more complicated...

  • What is a Deep Drop Bumper
  • A deep drop bumper is also known as a cowboy bumper. It is taller than a regular bumper, and would use a receiver that is lower than what would be used on the same vehicle that was equipped with a standard bumper. If you click on the provided link, you can see our Bumper FAQ article that will explain it in full. If your 1999 Ford F series has the cowboy bumper, the # C15316 would work great for you. If you have the standard bumper, # C14355 would be a better choice. This hitch will...

  • Hitch Extender Recommendation for a Ford Super Duty Hauling a Camper and Flat Towing a Honda CR-V
  • The closest hitch extension that we carry for your setup is the Titan Hitch Extender, # RP45018, that you referenced. This hitch extension was designed to work with 2-1/2 inch x 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receivers only and reduces down to a 2 inch receiver for your Blue Ox tow bar. You will want to measure the height and width of your trailer hitch receiver opening to ensure that you can use this extension with your hitch. When using this hitch to flat tow your Honda CR-V, you will want...

  • Commander Brake Controllers Green light is On Without Trailer Connected
  • It sounds to me as if you have a short on your brake feed to the trailer connector. Check the blue wire going to the trailer connector at the back of the vehicle to see if it is shorted. The easiest way to be sure the wire is not shorted is to cut the blue brake feed wire about 4 to 6 inches behind the controller. If the light on the controller goes off the blue wire is shorted somewhere and will need to be fixed or replaced. If the green light stays on, when the blue wire is cut, then...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty with 7.3 Liter Powerstroke
  • You can certainly use the Derale 24 Inch Frame Rail Fluid Cooler, # D13225, for your 1999 Ford F-250. You would also need Derale Radiator Adapter Fittings, # D13025, for the 7.3 liter Powerstroke. Any transmission cooler will could essentially be considered a remote mount application. I have included a link to the coolers recommended for your truck and engine. I have also included a link to our transmission cooler FAQ article and a video showing a typical installation.

  • Fifth Wheel Trailer to Gooseneck Hitch Adapter for a 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • To determine the best 5th wheel trailer to gooseneck hitch adapter you will need, there are some measurements you can take in addition to knowing the pin weight and gross trailer weight of the trailer, loaded and ready to tow. First, back your truck into position as if you were hooking up your fifth-wheel trailer, making sure that the truck and trailer are level. Then, measure from the pin plate (the bottom of the pin box) down to the top of the ball in the bed of your truck. This distance...

  • Tandem Axle Trailer Suspension Hanger Kit To Provide More Axle Clearance
  • It sounds as if your trailer suspension was built with the common Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit, # APT3, and that the springs and attachment hardware are wearing out enough that with the weight you are carrying there is no longer enough room for the suspension to work without contacting the trailer frame. I would recommend stepping up to the Heavy Duty Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit, # APT3HD, or the Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit, # AP233-H248. The # APT3HD kit comes with 2-1/2...

  • Where to Install the Relays that Come with Tow Package Wiring Harness # 118243 on a 1999 Ford F-250
  • I went over those instructions for the Ford Replacement OEM Tow Package Wiring Harness, # 118243, and other than the statement that they are located in the Power Distribution box, you are correct; it does not state specifically where the relays need to go. The information should be in your 1999 Ford F-250 owners manual. I did a little research and found the locations. The Trailer Tow Backup Lamp Relay is position #38 in the power distribution box. The Trailer Tow Charge is position #...

  • Does Curt Front Hitch, # 33055, Require Any Cutting Of Front Air Dam On A 1999 Ford Van
  • The Curt Front Hitch, # 33055, on a 1999 Ford Van does not require any cutting of the front valance (air dam), but you do need to remove the front valance from the bumper. Also, the two front holes in the frame rails need to be enlarged. Then, you will use the fishwire (included) to install the 4 bolts and spacers into the holes in the frame. Then, you just need to attach the hitch to those bolts and torque to 75 ft. lbs. I am sending a video link that will show you how to use the...

  • Should Nuts and Bolts or Screws Be Used to Mount Dutton-Lainson 4-Foot Roller Bunk
  • The Dutton-Lainson 4-Foot Roller Bunks, part # DL21754, can be mounted directly to the 2 x 4 bunk boards on your trailer using hardware of your choosing. My contact at Dutton-Lainson advised that the choice of nuts and bolts versus screws is not critical so long as the rollers are firmly secured. I took a few measurements of this part for your reference and to help you select hardware. These measurements are shown on the attached photo. The interior channel for mounting the roller bunks...

  • I am sending a link to the instructions for the Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller, # 39510. It will show you how to adjust the brake controller. They do not have a wiring schematic, but I can explain how to wire it to a 1999 Ford F250/F350 truck. If your 1999 Ford F250/F350 has a factory installed 7-Way trailer connector, all you would need is the brake controller and the factory brake control adapter that connects to the controller and plugs into the OEM plug. The OEM plug is located...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for a 1999 Ford F150
  • The Draw-Tite Activator # 5100 that you referenced is basically the first brake controller made in the Activator line.

The next controller in the Activator line is the Activator III # 5520. This controller has a brighter display and a quick disconnect feature.

  • Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 1999 Ford F-150 Short Bed
  • There are a couple of gooseneck options for the 1999 Ford F-150 short bed. First, you can use the B&W Turnover ball hitch, # BWGNRK1197, that you have referenced. I have also included a link to the right to all of the gooseneck trailer hitches that will fit your truck. For a short bed truck, an offset ball, # BWGNXA4085 will provide 4 more inches of clearance. I also recommend adding in-bed wiring, # 20030, to add a 7-Way in the bed of your truck.

  • Location of Back Up Lamp and Battery Charge Relays in 1999 Ford F250 Super Duty
  • In my research, I managed to download a copy of the Owners Manual for the 1999 F250 SD. I found that the Trailer Tow Back Up Lamp Relay is in position # 38 and the Battery Charge Relay is # 39. According to the diagram of the various locations in the power distribution box, location # 38 and 39 are not shown. The manual goes on to say that 38 and 39 are located in a smaller box that should be found adjacent to the larger box (closer to the brake master cylinder). I also found the same...

  • How to Determine the Correct Wheel and Tire Replacements for a 1979 Wilderness Travel Trailer
  • In order to determine the correct replacement wheels and tires for your 1979 Wilderness travel trailer, there are a couple of things you will need to take a look at on your existing tires. You will need to consider the load range the tires will need to have for your trailer. The load range indicates the horizontal and sidewall strength of a tire. It is represented by a letter within each tire size. Each load range letter correlates to a specific number of tire plies and a load pressure...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendations for a 1999 Ford Explorer Sport with Full Size Factory Spare Tire

I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. If you plan on doing some towing, I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit, # 989900, which comes will 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, and pin with clip, and a carrying bag. For trailer wiring, if the vehicle does not have a tow package, use # 118345....

  • What Color is the Brake Switch Wire to Use to Install a Draw Tite Activator Brake Controller
  • The wire you will want to use on your 1999 Ford Explorer should be a solid green wire. I would double-check with a circuit tester like the # 3808 to be sure. The 12 volt power source that runs to the 7-way is for auxiliary circuits like a winch or lights like you mentioned. In order for your brake controller to activate the brakes on your trailer you will not need to have this circuit wired up.

  • Towing a 1999 Ford Ranger with a Class A Motor Home
  • The # RM-032 will not hook to the front bumper of your truck. For your 1999 2 wheel drive Ford Ranger, you would need to purchase a base plate kit, tow bar, wiring and safety cables to tow your pickup behind your motorhome. We have the # 483-1 XL Series base plate kit for your vehicle which has removable brackets for when the vehicle is not being towed. For a tow bar you could use the Roadmaster Tracker Tow Bar, # RM-020, or the Roadmaster Falcon-2 Tow Bar, # RM-520. With the Tracker...

  • Best Value Programmer Recommendation for a 1999 Ford F-250 with a 5.4 Liter Gas Engine
  • For a 1999 Ford F-250 with a 5.4 liter gas engine, I think the best value for the money would be the Superchips Performance Chip, # SU1842. This unit will offer UP TO 27 extra horse power and 33 foot pounds of torque. In addition to adding power there are also tune levels specifically for towing so when in the proper tuning it will not strain the transmission. Estimating gas mileage is very difficult because everyone drives differently and there are other factors like the terrain, temperature,...
