Trailer hook up wiring diagram

A couple of weeks ago some bozo rear ended my truck and took out the wiring pigtail for the trailer hook-up. Instead of getting a factory replacement (The connector for the 7 pin hook up was smashed) I'm going to cut and splice with an aftermarket, but I've got an extra wire and trying to figure out what it is.

Are there two black grounds? Here's what I've traced so far, and correct me if I'm wrong. And if anyone knows where I can find a schematic online it'd be appreciated.

Purple/Black = Reverse Light
Orange/Black = Parkin/Tail Lights
Green/Purple = Left Turn Signal
Red/Black = Right Turn Signal
Bluish Green = Brake Light/Brake Switch
Red = Hot/Auxillary
2 Black = Ground?

The problem with that is the clip on the loom end was crushed.

One wire needs to go to your electric breaks.

my 01 had 2 black wires which were both grounds according to my service manual.
I had to replace mine recently because the housing was cracked and it finally fell apart. I had a brand new ford plug and harness collecting dust so i just spliced it in; works great. I just hope the ford part doesn't make my truck run badly or start eating parts

you could always ohm the black wire to a known ground to check your two black wires.

I just did and had the same problem. It was a plug from car quest.
The extra black is a ground. If you have a ohm meter you can verify this pretty quickly.

Hope this helps.

The two black 14 gauge wires are both grounds. If you trace them back, they both go to the same 12 gauge chassis ground. Here's a chart (trailer tow relay output means running/taillights) :
