The plug originates under the car, and is wired in with the wires for the taillights. It is a plug that had a red cap in it. It is taped in as a factory wired assembly. These wires disappear into the body of the car. So, I cannot follow them any further than where they go into the body.
I was hoping that someone had a dealer quality repair manual. These usually tell you where the various wiring harness connections are made.
I have done some research since my original post and it appears that Ford pre-wires these so that you won't burn out your electrical system when you back a trailer into the water. The entire circuit is separate from the rest of the electrical system and requires plugging in to ground it. If I have a voltmeter, is there any way I can test if this sytem is operational?
If you could tell me how to test the circuit, or where to find the electrical connectors, that would be most useful. Thanks.
