The Upgraded Circuit Protected Tail Light Converter with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector part # 119178 is not ran directly to the vehicle's battery. There are 5 wires that you will need to connect in order to install this harness. The white wire is for the ground circuit. The brown wire is for the tail lights. The yellow wire is responsible for the left turn signal. The red wire is responsible for the stop lights and the green wire is for the right turn signal. You will attach each of these to the factory wiring harness at the rear of the vehicle. I also recommend using a circuit tester, like part # 40376, to test the wires on your vehicle before splicing. have attached a review video that will walk you through this process. The unit receives its power from the factory lighting circuit therefore again, you will not need to run an individual power wire to the vehicle's battery. The Upgraded Circuit Protected Tail Light Converter Hardwire Kit part # 119178KIT comes with a circuit tester should you decide to go this route.

The Upgraded Circuit Protected Tail Light Converter is a universal fit wiring harness, for a wiring harness specifically designed to work with your 2004 Ford Escape, I recommend using the Hopkins Tail Light Converter Kit with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector part # HM48925. This wiring harness has the same features as part # 119178 and is also a more cost effective solution.
