Are you looking for the flat 4 wire hook up? It will have running lights, turn signals and brake lights.

yes i believe so this is all new to me thankx

There is no plug in kit available from Ford or after market like NAPA or Carquest. You can buy the trailer plug and harness at any auto parts store. It will have to be manually spliced in place. There are 4 wires, connect white to ground, splice the brown to the running light wire, greeen to the right ide turn signal wire and yellow to the left side turn signal wire. If you do not have a test light or voltmeter, a local trailer rental shop should not charge more than $30-$35 plus the parts to do this. The colors shouild match to the vehicle.

went to arlington trailer and was told that there in not enough power to do that he said i have to go to the battery and back to trailer ???
Ford Mechanic: EMRSR, Master Certified Service Manager replied 8 years ago
With him saying that...they are not qualified to do this. There is no need to go to the battery for power, you are just adding lights that work as the vehicle lights are working.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
