    I have an '01 ford explorer and i was wondering is there any way to convert my flat wire plug to a temporary round one

    or do you have a better solution for attaching a LIGHT BUSTER

    I want to be able to use both

    I've seen adapters for sale at Carquest, and trailer parts stores.

    I've never liked adapters though. whenever I get something that has a different style connection than the vehicle I'm putting it on, I'll replace it to match the vehicle.
    that way, you do it once, and don't have to mess with it anymore.

    I presume the light buster is an auxillary backup light. There is no backup light feed in a 4wire flat like a 7wire round. They make a 7 to 4, but I have never seen a 4 to 7. You will need to add a 7 wire socket, and do a little wiring.
