Wiring diagram for a 2016 Edge Sport w/ ACC

I'm looking to flat tow my 2016 Ford Edge Sport with the 2.7L Eco Boost and Adaptive Cruise Control. I can't find anybody that has info on how to wire this vehicle. Anybody have something they can share?

Thanks

I'm not familiar with the Edge, we have a 2015 Explorer, but I would assume it would be similar. The easiest way to wire your lights is to run the four wire flat harness from front to rear, underneath the car securing it with zip ties. Just make sure to avoid any moving parts and exhaust components. Find a path from underneath the rear up into the bumper cover and on up to your lights. You'll just have to figure out which wires go to each light. You'll need to install diodes. LED lights will work just like the filament bulbs.

My Explorer also has Adaptave Cruise Control. Blue Ox makes a base plate that works with adaptive cruise, I'm not sure about the other companies. If your coach has air brakes, I highly recommend the Air Force One braking system. Easy hook up and you don't have to wire into your brake lights.

What I'm told is the 2016 Edge Sport has multi-plex wiring. I asked Blue Ox if their wiring kit would work. The response was NO! They offer a kit with magnet lights to install on the back.

Thanks for responding.

That's why I suggested wiring directly to the rear lights instead of trying to tie into the wiring harness. My 2015 Explorer has the same wiring and I was told magnetic lights were the only solution as well as you couldn't tie into the led taillights on the Limited. You can buy the generic Blue Ox wiring kit with diodes and go directly to the wiring at the lights. I've done it on two different Explorers.
