Yes, you are correct. Sorry, I misread your initial post and thought you were suggesting that I need to purchase it with the 7-pin harness. Anyway, I'm good. Have a P2 on order.

ebcobra, Just my 2 cents. When I installed my p3 on the old explorer I was almost ready to give up thinking I just didn't have one, Its a pain in the neck to find. You mentioned there could be two different locations, I am not aware of the second but I can tell you on mine (06) I had to take out the glove box(Which was easy to do) reach up into the dash and it was taped to a support bar of some sort so well the entire harness was covered, I couldn't even see the connector I could only feel something was under the tape. But if you go to the left hand side of the glove box and almost straight up hopefully you will find it. Oh, Then best of luck fishing it over to the drivers side lol. But remember it can be done.

Thanks for the input Purdy. On "most" newer Explorers (based on my research), Ford finally got smart and moved the connector to the driver's side. It's still a pain to find though. Mine was directly above the hood release latch. I could see it through the small gap between the latch and the molding. One plastic cover had to be loosened so I had enough room to get my fingers around the connector and move it to where it was a little more accessible. It's tied up very well though, and is hard to maneuver.

Quick question about the P3. I was surprised on ours to see it display even when our vehicle is off and keys removed. Do most of you ermine it and store it when not in use? I'm just afraid I'll forget to install it next time if I do that.

Good question.


That pretty blue LED uses less power than the memory on the clock in your tow vehicle audio system!

It's there to let you know all is hooked up to power.

A stoopid petty theif might actually mistake it for an alarm and hesitate to break in.

For these reasons, I leave it alone......and would never ermine it (lol).


peace / out
