1999 Ford Questions and Answers


  • 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...

  • Torque Specs for Reese Universal 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit
  • The Reese universal installation kit is # RP30035. I have included a link to the installation instructions to the right which contain the torque specifications you need. The brackets do not have to be bolted on if they are welded. But if you just want the peace of mind then you can certainly bolt them on.

  • 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...

  • 7-way and Brake Controller Recommendation for a 1999 Ford F150 Styleside with 4-Way
  • The two parts you referenced, the # 118242 and the # C55242 are both just two different manufacturers takes on basically the same product. Either would work just as well as the other for you. The only difference is the brand. For a brake controller the most popular option we carry is the P2 Brake Controller part # 90885 because of how easy it is to setup and how well it works. All you would need to install it would be the part # 3035-P. This will plug into the controller and then...

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • Will Reese 22K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit B&W Above the Bed Rails in a 1999 Ford F-350
  • It sounds like you have B&W rails # BWRVR3200 in your 1999 Ford F-350. These are industry standard rails which do have the same mounting slot measurements you have provided. This means that the Reese 22K 5th wheel hitch # RP30033 will fit! I have linked a video review of this hitch for you.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • When Curt Says a Hitch Will fit With 20 Inch Spare to They Mean Rim or Tire Diameter
  • Yes, I checked with Curt and when they say a hitch like the part # C15410 would fit with a 20 inch spare they are referring to the rim size and not the tire size. Your spare that is sized 235/75R/16 would work just fine.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • What is a Deep Drop Bumper? How Do I Know If I Have One?
  • 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...

  • 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 and the amount of play in the set-up. Also, not every possible parts combination is covered by the available adapters. Jeep Wranglers...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for a 1999 Ford F150
  • The brake controller we recommend is the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller # 90885. This controller is a fully proportional brake controller that applies the brakes of your trailer in the exact same speed and strength as your tow vehicle brakes. This style controller is much safer and easier on braking components than a time-delayed controller. For your truck you can use the wiring adapter # 3035-P, for a direct plug in application. I attached an FAQ article on brake controllers...

  • How Much Will Transmission Cooler D13105 Lower Fluid Temperature on a 1999 Ford F-250
  • There are other factors involved including ambient temperature and elevation and so on but I am confident that by adding transmission cooler # D13105 to your 1999 Ford F-250 you could see a drop of 10 to 20 degrees in the transmission fluid temperature. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. I had a smaller one on a smaller vehicle and the fluid temp dropped 10 to 12 degrees so I know that it would lower it more on a truck that has more fluid capacity and more...

  • 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Trailer In-Bed Wiring Harness for a 1999 Ford F-350
  • The Hopkins Endurance 5th Wheel/Gooseneck 90-Degree Wiring Harness, # HM40157, will plug in-line with the wiring on your 1999 Ford F-350 as long as it came with a factory 7-Way trailer connector at the back of the truck. If a 7-Way was added later an the truck did not come with one originally, you will need to use a different type of harness, # 20027.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • How to Pick out a Front Mount Hitch for a 1999 Ford F350
  • The difference between the Curt Hitch # C31014 and Curt Hitch # 31114 is that the # C31014 is designed for vehicles with blocker beams and the # 31114 is designed for vehicles without the blocker beam. You will want to look under the front end of your 1999 Ford F350 to see if you have a blocker beam and order the correct front hitch for your vehicle. If you get under the front of your vehicle and see an L-shaped bracket attached to a beam that runs from one frame rail to the other you...

  • 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. For your truck...

  • Why is the Ride in the Back Seat of an F-550 So Rough, and is There Anything That Makes it Smoother
  • The crazy rough bouncing of the rear suspension is due to the very high spring rate of the rear suspension. The very high towing capacity of your early model F550 is kind of a double edged sword in that you have the ability to tow way more weight than almost any other vehicle on the road, but the suspension is so stiff that when you hit a bump you really feel it. The rear suspension of your truck was not designed for comfort, it was only designed for carrying a lot of weight. When your...

  • Trailer Tire and Dual Wheel Recommendation for 10K Dexter Axle
  • The trailer tire and wheel combo to fit your 10K Dexter axle would be the Taskmaster Provider ST235/85R16 Trailer Tire with 16" Silver Dual Wheel, # TTWA16RG477. This wheel can be used as either the inner or outer wheel of a dual-wheel setup.

  • Is the Husky Quest Brake Controller the Same as the Hopkins Agility Brake Controller
  • My technical contact at Hopkins confirmed your exact thoughts - Hopkins does produce the Husky Quest for Husky. The only difference between the two controllers is the mounting plug. The Hopkins Agility # HM47294 that you referenced has the 4 flat plug and the Husky Quest and a 4 position square plug.

  • Wiring And Adjusting The Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller, # 39510, On A 1999 Ford F250/F350
  • 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...

  • Differences Between Reese Goose Box RP94622 and RP94623
  • In addition to having a higher towing and pin weight capacity, the # RP94623 will fit a few more applications than the # RP94622. Along with the Lippert 1621 and 1621HD, the # RP94623 will also fit the Lippert 0719 and the Fabex PB-600 series. When used with the # RP61301 spacer plate, either Goosebox will also fit the Lippert 0115, 1716 and 1116. I've linked you to product description videos for each Goosebox model.

  • 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 #...

  • No Running Light Signal and 4-Flat Connector on a 1999 Ford Expedition
  • To determine why you do not have a tail light signal at your 4-way trailer connector, you will want to check a few things. If you have a factory installed 4-way connector on your 1999 Ford Expedition, then you will want to check fuse number 5 and relay number 201. This is the fuse and the relay that control the running light function on your trailer wiring harness. If you replace the fuse and relay and still have the problem or if you have an aftermarket wiring harness installed, then...
