Australian Car Repair Issues? Ask an Auto Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.In order to be able to try and help you we need to know what year your Territory is. Post back with this information and I will see if I can find the wiring diagrams you need to located the wire location.
After looking I am not coming up with the diagram you are needing. I will reopen the post so that others can help if they have what you need.
Hi there, It will run from the rear to the engine bay, where it will be connected to an aftermarket brake control module, probably located near the battery. It will be an after market installation, as none of the Territories came with a brake controller ex factory. A few routes are possible, including through the RHS sill.Can I ask what the issue is that you are chasing? CheersScott
Hello Alan,If you're not familiar with the layout of the electrics in the Territory, you are most likely best off leaving the job to an auto electrician.Having said that - here's the basic guide.You need supply power. Best for that & least intrusive to the stock electrics is the pos battery terminal. You'll also most likely need a relay in line (depending on controller make). You also need to connect into the brake switch electrics, either from one of the tail light assemblies, or near the brake switch. Best location to find as much is under the drivers side kick panel. If needed, any grounding or neg side connections are best straight to the battery neg terminal.It's incredibly difficult, & largely beyond the scope of the JA service to advise on equipment installations..Best of luck!Scott
Hi again, Alan,The blue wire is the feed from the controller back to the trailer brakes, ie it doesn't hook into the vehicle electrics. Logically if it's already present, maybe you are already controller equipped?Cheers..
Ok if it's part of a factory trailer electrics loom, it's most likely not hooked up, assuming no trailer brake module is present. It's outside my knowledge as to where Ford have bundled unused wiring thereof & terminated it. As far as I understand, Ford did & do not equip the Territory with a factory brake module. It may mean talking to Ford service directly, or chasing the loom forward in the car to see where it terminates..Cheers..
Hi again, usually dealer fitted items are not part of any factory schematic, & how they are fitted often varies between installers. It has been slightly difficult interpreting precisely what you are after to some extent regarding the brake wire..It should be reasonably easy to chase back the trailer wiring, given that it will be external to the main loom. Of course local knowledge regarding the vehicle helps.RegardsScott
Hi again, As mentioned above, it can be quite difficult to resolve an issue if not personally there on site in some cases. I'll opt out at this point & leave you with the advice to run the issue past the dealer from where you bought it, or an auto electrician..Best of luck,Scott
