Question about 2004 Saturn VUE

Turn signal issue

I was pulling a trailer when I noticed the signal lights had stopped working. The signals do not come on at all, left or right, neither do the dash indicator lights. The flashers work fine. I cannot find a fuse in the under hood fuse holder for the turn signals. I have disconnected the trailer and checked for shorts and can not find any. Are the emergency flasher and turn signal flasher the same unit or separate? Is there another fuse holder? If a separate flasher exists for the signals where is it locate?

Have you checked the fuse inside the car ? If it does not turn on, take the car to an autoparts store to have it scanned for a code. then we can go fom there.

Yellow is the left turn signal on pin 2
Check trailer plug and see if correct colors used on trailer plug
Would suggest getting a 12volt probe so you can test the car socket when left indicator is going on - flashing
To check that the correct pin has 12volts flashing left on it.

After a rear end collision, the turn signals and 4-way flashers don't work right. turn on left signal and all lights in rear flash.


Sounds like a ground problem, and the turn signal is trying to use another path to ground, causing the other lights to glow.

Check the left side bulb socket for a good ground.

The other test is to pull the L & R Stop / Turn fuses for the trailer tow adapter, to make sure the problem is not with the 4 or 7 pin trailer adapters.

2003 Chevy HD trailer wiring problem


I have the exact same issue. I have also tested my trailer on other vehicles and it works fine. I even purchased a light up tester and found the problem at the harness. It seems like a bad ground to me but I can't seem to find one.

The trailer lights have a common brake/turn wire while the truck has seperate turn and brake lights. I think the problem lies with the device that marries the two for the trailer wiring but I don't know where to find it?

Turn signals won't work in 98 Chevy Silverado


Have you checked to make sure you have a good ground connection from truck to trailer? If you don't it may be using your turn signal circuit for grounding. One way you might be able to check is to hook up trailer with key on and no lights turned on, then try turn signals. If they work this way then turn marker lights on, if they then do not work it is a ground issue. Otherwise it could be the trailer side of connection is not mated up to truck side of connection(left turn to left turn etc.). Hope this is helpful. KS

LEFT TRAILER TURN SIGNAL DOES NOT WORK


I have seen once before that the fuse box was bad on a 2003 Dodge 3500. I had power in and nothing out. We had to replace the box. Not cheap! Hope it is simple like a loose connection though. I think I had to pull the inner fender on the drivers side to access the bottom of the fuse box. Pain in the ****, but...

LEFT TRAILER TURN SIGNAL DOES NOT WORK


I'd get a 12vdc test light if you don't have one already & start from plug, and keep probing back from there. It may be as simple as a bad connection under truck where joined into harness.

Left turn signal on trailer


ok tdknutson, I'm not clear on this, does the truck left turn signal stop working when u plug the trailer in, or is it the trailer left turn signal that's not working, or both? When u plugged in the test light did it show u had power to that plug in? Let me know the answer to the above, and in the meantime, check the ground on the turn signal at the trailer. Make sure it's not loose, and tightly connected to the frame (or wire). Also, what type plug in do u have? 4, 6, 7 wire?

Trailer Lighting Kit


Do u have a 4,5,6,or 7 way (wire) system? If it's 4 way it allows basic hookup for 3 lighting functions:
GREEN is right turn signal and stop light, YELLOW is left turn signal and stop light, BROWN is license, and side marker lights, WHITE is ground.

5way is same as above, but adds a BLUE wire for brake signal or aux. power. Its used on pop up campers, utility and boat trailers.

6way (rectangle plug) green=right turn signal, yellow=left turn signal, brown=taillight, white=ground, red and blue can be used for brake control or auxilary. Used on small motorcycle trailers, snowmobile trailers, utility trailers.

6way Round Plug, same as above, but blue is electric brakes, and black (sometimes red,) 12v; note:sometimes red/black need to be reversed w/ blue to suit the trailer.

7way adds an additional pin at plug in for 12volt power or back up lights. Whoa! hope that answers your question w/out confusing u. Let me know if u need more info.
