Recommended Trailer Wiring Harness for 2012 Ford Escape  


Hello, I have a connector on my 2012 Ford Escape that I believe to be for tow wiring prep, but I cannot find a product that fits it in all of my searching. The dealership was not able to find it through their search either. It is a rounded rectangle with 10 pins located on the drivers side just inside the rear bumper. Perfect placement for tow prep. Do you have a product that fits this adapter?


Expert Reply:

Based on my research, the 10 pin connector that you found on your 2012 Ford Escape is actually unrelated to any trailer wiring functions so there is not a harness available that will connect to it.

If your 2012 Ford Escape does not have the factory towing package, I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118551. This custom-fit harness will connect to built-in ports that are located behind the driver and passenger side tail lights. This will provide you with a 4-Way connector to connect with and power your trailer's basic signal lights.

I have attached the written installation instructions that you can use for reference.
