Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2012 Ford Escape that Does Not have the Factory Tow Package


I bought this car used and successfully installed the 75751 hitch but was unable to locate the connector for trailer lights. I looked in the area by the bumper and behind both tail lights but no connector was present. Is there another kit I will have to use/ install?


Expert Reply:

It sounds like your 2012 Ford Escape did not come with the factory tow package. So instead of using harness 118251 you will need to use # 118551. This is the version for models that did not come with the factory tow package.

I have linked a video showing an example installation. The video is on a different vehicle but the installation process is the same.
