99 f150 4.2 6cyl long bd dont know the transmis wiring harness connects to passenger side of transmiss on the top outside pushing down

ok, then the connector was full of fluid. that is not good.

there is a seal on the inside to the outside in the trans. remove the pan and inspect that seal. if it is bad, then the internal harness will have to be replaced.

I have tried to seal these harnesses with sealers and they only last a short time and the issue returns.

Is the internal harness an identifiable part

sure, once you drop the pan and filter it will be exposed for you to view.

I meant to order a new one, do I need to take it out first or can it be ordered by transmission harness connector

no, I would order the harness and when you get it then you can match it up to the original. i would do nothing till you secure the harness
