tomw, is that part number a Ford part number? I have the harness that goes from the distribution box under the hood to the bumper. What I am missing is the 4 pin connector that plugs into the harness. I don't think I need the part you reference, just the 'pigtail'. I found that at etrailer for 15 bucks.
I have the factory installed trailer package, so the day I picked up my vehicle, I found a sealed plastic bag in the rear cargo area and later installed them but have never towed anything.
I think somebody stated in another forum that they were $13/each.
You need the 4-pin round to 4-pin flat pigtail, correct?
One point that came up elsewhere is about the anti-sway trailer feature and how it's enabled. There's nothing in the manual that it's a dealer only enabled option. A pure guess on my part is that "somehow" if you have the factory harness, it gets enabled.
Look at you owner's manual on how to disable the feature and that'll tell you if you have it or not. I'd be inetrested in what you find out. I've always meant to remove the relays and see if I could disable the feature but never did but it may not make a difference anyway.
