Video Transcript for Tow Ready Tow Package Wiring Harness Installation - 2002 Ford F-150

Today, our 2002 Ford F150 SuperCrew Cab, we're going to install part number 118242. This is a Ford replacement OEM tow-package wiring harness. Now, what this will do, it will upgrade your preexisting 4-pole harness on tow package up to a 7-pole. Now, our new upgrade harness will actually work with a factory 4-pole wire harness. In this case we don't have our 4-pole anymore, so that's why we're upgrade. Our connection point is right here on the frame rail on the driver's side.

Yes, you definitely want to take the spare tire out of the way so you can see what's going on. This is our connection point and this is our ground. We're going to have to take apart the ground and our connection point. Then we'll go ahead and move this off the frame rail. A small pry bar or trim panel tool will work to get the classic part off here; we'll have easier access to our wire harness. Now, we need to take this apart, push down on this tab, and pull it apart.

Then we can go ahead and start to install our new parts. We've got our new wire harness and basically T into the middle of these two connectors; push them together until they click. Then, we'll go ahead and install our white wire at the ring terminal with the original one and original screw back into the frame. We'll snap this back into its original place, a little push fastener. I'm going to take the indirect cable; it'll go towards our bumper. I like to route it over the frame, back down to the bumper.

Now, at this point it's personal preference how you route your wire harness to the eventual location of your 7-pole connector. Let's go ahead and use a zip tie to help contain our wires, keep them safe and secure. Now, the kit doesn't come with many zip ties, so you may want to go get yourself some. Now, this is our 7-pole connector that'll eventually plug into the back of our wire harness here. This is like Ford factory.

To do that, I will now mount a couple of brackets to hold our 7-pole in place. Now, the bracket we're going to install is part number 18140 from Tow Ready. This is their universal mounting bracket. This bracket is going to attach to the bottom of our hitch and use this clamp to hold it in place. Now you take the screw and a clamp and bend it out of the way to make it easier to run the clamp through and then push it back up. Then use a 5/16ths nut driver to tighten it up. I'm just going to bend that guy up and out of the way for the excess. Now, the bracket we're going to use to hold our 7-pole connector up will be part number PK12711U. This is a mounting bracket for 7-pole connectors from Pollak. Also, we're going to need some hardware to do this. This will be hardware installation kit PK11926. Now to make our connection we're going to use the parts that came with our first bracket to attach these two. Our hardware kit will work with the 7-pole connector itself. A number two Phillips screwdriver will work to tighten down our hardware. Let's go ahead and mount our 7-pole connector, using the hardware kit for 7-pole bracket; flat blade screwdriver for these screws. Then, we can go ahead and plug our wire harness into our 7-pole connector. Now on this connector here, it's a good idea to use some dielectric grease. We'll be using part number 11755 from Lubrimatic. Push these two together until they click and there's also a small grey lock that goes on the end here. Now, typically this piece is already installed on here, but you might want to take it off before you do your installation to make it easier to snap together. So, to take it off, you just push down right here with a really small screwdriver. Push down in the middle and then remove it. When we need to use it, we just line it up and push it into place. All right, next we'll get underneath the hood of the truck and we'll go to the fuse panel here. We'll open it up, take the lid off. There's a couple of relays and fuses that we have to install. At this point, you definitely want to go by the owner's manual and find the locations for your fuses. Now, a lot of times the relays and fuses are already installed onto your truck. So, it's just basically you got to just investigate and see what you need and what you don't need. Now, in our particular truck, we only had to install the backup relay, which is located right here. On our battery charge circuit for our trailer, the relay goes right there. Everything else is already installed on the truck. The fuses that came with the kit, we couldn't use in this one because they're already fuses in the areas of the fuse box of our truck. So, we are done. We have everything in place it's a good idea to test it out with a tester before you try it on a trailer. With that, that'll finish it for our install, part number 118242 full replacement OEM tow-package wiring harness on our 2002 Ford F150 SuperCrew Cab. .

The wiring harness worked great. There are instructions and a video that made it simple. I knew exactly what to do before I started. We needed this in order to pull a larger trailer that has electric brakes and didn't want to cut and splice wires. The connectors plugged right in to the OEM connectors. I only wish I would have thought of it sooner so I didn't have to pay for the next day delivery...but on the other hand Amazon was like a 2 week delivery and Ford was triple the price. I was happy that someone offered next day delivery. 318910

I do not like to leave bad reviews, however I was initially impressed from what I heard about family members who have used etrailer. I purchased the above product for a 97 ford f150 with factory tow package. This product was confirmed to fit this truck, and was listed as specifically for this truck. However the connectors are not even close, which I can understand considering that the truck was built in mid 96 as a 97 model. I called into customer service after doing a great deal of research, and discovered through ford that there were different variations of electric brake configurations for this year. I needed to return said product, that I purchased based on the websites EXACT description and etrailer wants to charge me almost 12 bucks to return a product that they advertise as "confirmed fit". I would have no problem paying for shipping if this was MY error. Customer service stated that they would request to waive shipping, confirmed my phone number, stated they would call back....never did. One would think you guys would do your homework on this before advertising a product in such a manner. I was easily able to find out that depending on when and where my truck was built would determine what type of harness is needed. 451374

My F150 had an OEM 4 pin trailer plug and hitch. The 118242 - 7 pin connector with wiring harness is the ticket. The hardest part of the install was dropping the spare tire. The plugs connect directly to the factory plugs and the harness length is the correct length. The 3035-P brake controller connector harness was just as easy. Plugs right in to the OEM plug next to the ECM connector and the other end into the brake controller. The PK12711U-26 - 7 pin bracket and hardware kit fastens directly the OEM bracket that is on the hitch. My truck had an OEM 4 pin trailer towing set up with the hitch. The OEM hitch had the bracket welded on it to attach the 7 pin mounting bracket to it. These kits make this install very easy and professional looking. If I have one complaint, the hardware kit to attach the 7 pin connector bracket is set up to fasten the bracket directly to the bumper with 2 - self tapping screws provided in the kit. The kit also includes 4 #12 machine screws with toothed washer nuts to attached the 7 pin connector to the bracket. This is fine if your truck hitch doesn't have an attaching bracket welded to it. The kit should included in it 6 #12 machine screws and nuts along with the 2 self tapping screws. Since my OEM hitch actually had a bracket welded to it to attach the 7 pin bracket to it, I had to use two other #12 screws and nuts to attach the 7 pin bracket to the OEM bracket on the hitch. Not a big deal, just a thought. It took me about 2 hours, start to finish to install the 7 pin connector, trailer controller, and add the two relays in the OEM relay/fuse box under the hood. I highly recommend these kits. 322339

We purchased a 5th trailer and needed to have my Ford F-150 wired for trailer brakes and 7 pin harness. Checked your website and was able to find all parts I needed. The installaton videos you have are awesome, they help out so much. Ordered all parts and they arrived quickly. All parts were identical to what was ordered. Had everything installed and wired in, in about 45 minutes. They wiring harness was perfect fit and they trailer brake control harness also exact fit. My overall experience was awesome from placing the order and the e-mails to let me know who took my order and who sent it and tracking it. I will recomond etrailer to everyone I can. Thanks to etrailer we are ready to tow our trailer.****** 34253

The product works as described. The only problem I encountered was on a 2001 F150 crewcab. The connector that connected to the wire harness coming from the front of the vehicle did not have any catch mechanism so it wouldn't stay together enough for the right side lights(on truck and trailer) to work. I used some channel locks and pushed together as far as I could without breaking anything then used electrical tape to tape it together. Of course after I crawled out form under truck and put spare back in place I realized I should have used a zip tie to hold it. Would probably last longer and hold better. Everything works well. I do not have a brake controller hooked up on vehicle yet. 113986

this adapter is not the only item i bought, i ended buying multiple plug adapters in hopes of finding one that worked, well to make a long story short i ended up taking my motorhome with all the plugs that i had bought to giant r.v. and sales that said please fix it. the bill came to 679.01 so instead of being a plug and play it turn out to be plug and pay. but on the bright side i have extra plug that i will never use. 490003


Comments

Thanks for the follow up Charles, This 7-way is intended to be a 7-way replacement for the trailer connector on older model Ford F-150s but is is not a fit for either your 2017 F-150 or intended to be used as a flat tow wiring harness for flat towing your F-150 behind your motorhome. I have included a link to the trailer connectors confirmed as a fit for your and a link for the vehicle tow bar wiring for flat towing your F-150 behind your motorhome.

Excellent product. High quality and easy installation. Made better than a factory harness I have on a different vehicle. I also purchased the mounting bracket and hardware kit. The bracket is wonderful and most of the hardware was good too. The self tapping screws both got the heads broke off, but it was my fault, not the screws. 85108

The tow package I purchased last year, fits great and installed perfectly. It works perfectly with my electronic under-dash brake controller. The kit came with everything that I needed and instructions were easy to read I had the entire kit installed in about 40 minutes it's work Flawless for me for over a year and I tow a variety of trailers the plug is never failed due to workmanship it is still water tight. The receiver cap spring still has excellent tension to help hold the plug into place, the only gripe I have is that I should have installed stainless mounting screwswhen I installed the kit because the mounting starting are starting to rust a little, but that's my oversight and is nothing to do with the kit and its ability to provide flawless service. I highly recommend this product if you're like me and was looking for an oem Plug and Play setup! 5 stars! 374842

After much research, I decided to buy what I needed for my trailer brakes on my 99 F150 from etrailer.com. I'm very glad I did. The wiring harness plugged in just as they said it would. The brake controller was a breeze to install. Shipping was fast and free since I spent over $99.00. Over all, I am very pleased with what I got, shipping and the followup on my order. I will recommend etrailer.com every chance I get. 509013

The whole process from ordering to installation was simple. Only thing that coulda been an issue, the two 30amp fuses that came with kit were flat type fuses. My 02 Ford F150 takes square fuses. It didn’t matter though since there were already fuses installed!! Works like a champion!! 486488

Seems to be a quality part. Arrived ahead of time and was priced good. But it does not match up with my 99 Ford F-150 stepside. There is no pig tail for the rear lights and now I have no brakes blinkers or anything. Well that was the reason for buying this because the original harness was destroyed. Is there a different harness I should have gotten? 438750

  • Adding a 7-Way Trailer Connector to a 2011 Ford F-150
  • The 2011 Ford F-150 should have come with either a factory 4-Way or factory 7-Way trailer connector. To upgrade from a 4-Way to a 7-Way you will need # 37185. If you follow the factory 4-Way wiring under the truck you will see where it plugs into another harness. The wiring for this other harness will have a 12 volt power wire and an output wire for trailer brakes. Pull back the protective covering over the wiring for this forward connector to find them.

  • Adding a 7-Way Trailer Connector to a 2017 Ford Expedition with Factory 4-Way
  • In order to add a 7-Way trailer connector to your 2017 Ford Expedition you will need to use # ETBC7. There isn't a plug and play type of harness to add a 7-Way to your Expedition. I have included some links that show and explain the ETBC7 installation for you. If you are also looking for a brake controller I recommend the P2 # 90885 because it is easy to set up and use and it is reliable.

  • Recommended Wiring for 1998 Ford F-150 to Add 7-Way to Factory 4-Way Trailer Connection

This will give you the two additional relays needed as well as the wiring harness. Then you will need a brake controller. I recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195 as well as the wiring adapter # 3035-P. This will give you an easy to use proportional brake controller with easy to use presets as well as a nice LCD screen for diagnostics....
