    On my 99 eb I've got the plugs under the tail lights on both sides. I can't find a wiring harness to run trailer lights. Anyone have part numbers or suggestions? Thanks in advance

    Drivers side tail light plug is for the trailer lights. Hopkins 40915 is OEM fit plug in. Gives you a 4-flat. Usually around $15 at most parts stores.

    I was told once it was used for testing purposes during assembly in the plants, but honestly dont know. It didnt have any live current when I put a tester on the pins a few years ago.
