Hate to hear that was hoping to get mine installed next week.

Any ideas on a path forward?
I’m going to install the pro backing parts “dash”, and look under the dash to make sure the TBC brain is in fact installed. We might be at the mercy of ford at the moment but I going to press my dealership to lean on ford to figure it out

Thank you, I’m not worried about installing the pro back up assist, I’ve used it one time just to play with it in my truck and don’t see a reason to add it to the expedition that will pull a trailer twice a year.

I would agree, however, there is a second plug I believe it plugs into the pro backing. It might need it to complete the circuit.

I’m waiting on a part at the moment. The computer sees the TBC but it’s not working. Soon as I get the pro steering controller in and see if that where the second plug goes I’ll up date y’all.

I find it hard to believe that there is not a wire harness with an open connector port or something behind the dash.

On previous F150’s I’ve owned the truck came with a short harness jumper to compete the connection point. I installed an OEM controller in our 2018 when it was new. You need to program the controller to the computer with FORScan to get it to function.

Try checking YouTube videos or another dealer. There has to be a connection point. They make one harness for behind the dash for all expeditions and I would even bet it’s the same harness that goes in the F150’s.

So, I got the Trailer Pro Steering components today. As I suspected, the second plug on the factory trailer break pig tail does in fact plug into the Pro Steering. As per my other posts, I have already installed the TBC components. I will install these new parts tomorrow and I will up date on the results.

You have the 15" screen. Do you have the trailer section in there?
If not you need a module OR the software needs to be configured maybe for the trailer addition.
