There should be a pigtail to the driver's Rear underneath of the bed frame, almost above the spare tire. I just had the whole harness out to rewire mine for the goose neck AND the bumper hitch. I don't think your looking at the correct harness, but mine is a '99. I would assume they stayed the same thru 04 at least. There will be a total of 7 wires, however some/all may be taped back into the loom depending on your current setup.
yeah, i bought a haynes to help out with stuff but so far it has proved useless.
the brown wire comes on with the headlights only?
im trying to wire some aux lighting with the headlights
out of curiosity, how do the brake lights work?
i accidentally used the orange/gry one and it comes on with the brakes and with the right turn signal.
what if i only wanted brakes? would i have to connect to the green one from the CHMSL (third brake light)
The brown wire comes on with the running/marker lights. So that would technically be the switch position before the headlights if that matters. The brake lights use the same filament as the turn signals. If you want a brake light only, there is usually a blunt cut wire coming out of the wiring loom under the bed towards the rear somewhere that is labeled CHMSL.

the other way to get brakes only (in this case) would be to have an OR gate and use both turn signals as inputs. however if you had a turn signal with no brakes, then you would still get flashing, but it would go solid as soon as the brakes were applied
just realized that i could also use the liscence plate lamps as headlight-on signals.
Hi, I am trying to wire in a older welding bed and I am finding that the turn signal power runs back through to the brake lights on the oposite side. I have found the wires that run just the brake lights, but because ford has the turn signal combined with the brakes it closes the cuircut back through the brake light when just the blinker is on? Anyone know how else I can run older bed with just turn signal without brakes ?
