    Like everyone else, I struggled locating the harness. I was able to find it but the connector doesn't match the connector on my brake controller harness. I have the Tekonsha harness like this. I have been unable to find the proper connector anywhere. Is anyone able to point me in the right direction? The dealer has not been able to help me so far.

    BTW I don't see a picture. Just a black square with an 'x' in it and IMG beside it.

    Got that one. Not sure why I get that other issue from time to time. Most of the time there's no issue so I don't know if it is a problem at my end or the way they are posted.

    Go to the top right of the page and use the 'Search' feature. Enter the word Tekonsha in the search field and select "Search this thread" and execute. You'll find 16 posts where that word is mentioned. The 2nd last one shows a link to an adaptor but check out the other posts as well s I saw one that said the adaptor may not give full functionality. Good luck.

    I have a 2015 Explorer with factory tow package. The trailer I am looking at requires a brake control installed. Does anyone know if there is a plug under the drivers side dash that you can just plug into? The Ford website says that there is a plug there for trailer brakes, but that might be just for there trucks.
