2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Questions and Answers

  • Valley Journey Trailer Brake Controller # 52650 Has Constant Brake Signal at Trailer Connector
  • If your Valley Journey Brake Controller # 52650 delivers a constant brake output signal to your trailer connector you can use a circuit tester such as the Quickee # 3808 to determine if the fault is in the controller itself or elsewhere. There are several potential causes for this issue. I have linked a help article that will be useful to you as you troubleshoot. Please note that in a separate email I have forwarded the instructions for the now-discontinued Journey. You can start at...

  • Installing an Electric Trailer Brake Controller, 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac with Factory 4-Way
  • Since your 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac has a 4-Way wiring harness already, you will need to start by adding an Adapter, but I recommend using a 4 and 7-Way Installation Kit, # ETBC7. Your 4-Way will plug into the back of the adapter and you will need to hardwire the remaining 4 wires. First, ground the white wire to the vehicle frame. Next, for the purple wire, if the trailer does not have reverse lights this wire is not needed and you can tape it up and stow it out of the way. Otherwise,...

  • Roof Rack Solution for Carrying Kayaks on 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
  • I spoke with my contact at DeeZee, who tells me that they are not certain that the clamps used to hold the Ladder Rack System to the top of the side of the bed will work with your Sport Trac. The ladder rack has not been tested with your vehicle. Perhaps a better solution would be install a Thule Roof Rack. One can be constructed using the following parts: If your Sport Trac is equipped with the rails that run from the front to the rear of the roof: Load Bars, part # THLB58 Crossroad...

  • Parts Needed to Install a Tekonsha Primus Brake Controller on a 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
  • Brake controllers are not vehicle specific so you can use any of them that come up for your 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac.

If the vehicle did not come with any trailer connector you will need to add one using # 18252.

  • Towing Mirrors for a 2004 Ford Explorer or Explorer Sport Trac
  • We currently do not have any custom fit towing mirrors for your 2004 Ford Explorer or Explorer Sport Trac but we do have a wide selection of universal towing mirrors, see link to the right, that you could potentially use. The most popular option, # KS3891, clips onto stock mirrors that have a lip or gap between the glass and mirror housing. I have included a link to a video review of this mirror for you.

  • Will the K-Source Work on a 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT and a 92 Inch Wide Trailer
  • The mirror portion of the K-Source Universal Towing Mirror, # KS3891, is 7-3/4 inches at its widest, which means the outermost portion of the mirrors will sit at 94-1/2 inches wide. At this distance, it would be difficult to see directly behind the trailer, but you would most likely be able to see something that is further behind the trailer such as cars on the highway. You should also be able to see parking lines when backing into a parking spot or trailer site. After looking at the...

  • Which Curt Hitch Fits 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
  • We have a very similar hitch that does fit your 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac but the # C13550 only fits the non-Sport Trac models. Instead you would want the Curt hitch part # 13407. This hitch fits all Sport-Trac models including ones with factory hitches.

  • Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer with Brakes Using a 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
  • For the Class III trailer hitch receiver I suggest the Draw-Tite # 75112. This is a custom fit 2 inch hitch receiver that will fit your 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac. The B&W Tow & Stow # BWTS10037B is a great adjustable ball mount that provides either 5 inches of drop or 5-1/2 inches of rise. It will also store under the hitch when not in use. Use locking hitch pin # BWTS51234 or standard pin and clip # PC3. If the Tow & Stow doesn't work with your setup I've linked our selection...

  • Brake Controller Sends Power on Red Wire when Using the Manual Override
