Troubleshooting The Quick Connections On The 2017 Ford Explorer And The Tekonsha Harness # 118272


I bought this part with my Draw titer Hitch. The Website said it was a perfect fit. The tabs do not line up with what is on my vehicle. Any recommendations?


Expert Reply:

This Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package - 7-Way Trailer Connector # 118272 harness is designed to be used with vehicles that already have a factory tow package. If you don't have that factory tow package, it may not fit. If you don't have the tow package, I recommend you use the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118540. If you do have the factory tow package, it should install to the connection located beneath the vehicle behind the rear tire on the passenger's side. Pins like this can easily get bent, so check your connections for bent pins prior to install.
