A pre wired kit should mean some sort of harness should already be installed in the rear underside, but this is often not the case. Odds are you will probably still have to run wires to battery, brake controller etc.
Hi Jon - I'm in the US and struggling with the trailer tow wiring myself. I have the SE package 2.0L engine and on the factory sticker it says "Trailer Tow Prep Wiring".
Whin i had a hitch installed, U-Haul showed me where the plug in is located. Mine is located under the drivers side bumper. Its a wiring plug that is covered with a protector.
However, my plug is dead. No power going to it. If you or any others know of how I can get this energized it would be greatly appreciated. I've been to 3 dealerships with no joy.
Thanks in advance and hope this helps.
I brought mine in because the dealership promised me that they would look into the issue for free. The conclusion is that FORD chose not to install the module that controls the wiring. They estimated the Module price at $154 plus installation fees. I am choosing not to go that route. FORD will not cover the cost of the Module. I'm requesting part numbers when I pick up the car tonight and I can post them on here if that would be helpful to others. I do appreciate that the dealership is not charging me the diagnostic charge being they had no idea what the problem would be.
I recently purchased 2018 Ecosport SES. The window sticker states "TRAILER TOW PREP WIRING". Noone at the dealership where I purchased seems to know what this means. I just installed a trailer hitch, and would now like to add the trailer wiring/connector. Does anyone know the part# for the electrical harness/connector? Do I just need a wiring harness? Or are there other controller, fuses, etc components needed?
I ordered one from ford last week , just received it , but no instructions, I know it came with a module, and a wire that goes to the battery, just not sure about concealing the wires or how to install the kit
