1999 silverado trailer brake control has no power

I installed a brake control unit in my 1999 Silverado that is factory equiped with the trailer harmess. But after plugging in the 6 pin conector to the aux panel, there is no power at the control unit. I also noticed there is no fuse in the stud 1 location in the underhood fuse box.

Is this a 4 way or 6 way connection system? If your truck is wrong, then all factory equipped trailer package harnesses would be wrong, tell your trailer guy...I don't think so.

SOURCE: need wire diagram to hook up trailer lights, truck not factory equipped w/harness,

I'm assuming you're just going to splice into the tail light wiring so that's what these wire colors are:
at the tail lamp 3 way connector:
black and yellow = park lamp
dark green and brown = left turn signal
there should be another connector with violet and black wire for reverse lights.
the stop lights are turned on through the turn signal circuits.

SOURCE: 09 Silverado LS no trailer clearance lights

make sure the ground wire is hooked up, i've seen many trailers where the ground wire just hangs, then your relying on the ground to work between the ball and the hitch, not typically a good ground.

Location of Brake Pressure Sensor on 2009 2500HD Chev Silverado. This is what tells the factory Integrated Trailer Brake Controller how much you are applying the vehicle brakes.


GM also offers a built-in trailer-brake controller on 2009 half-ton trucks. Like Ford's, when activated, the truck's ABS brakes reduce gain to the trailer brakes. In GM trucks, however, the controller gain adjustment and hand control are on the left side of the steering column. It's all electronic, not hydraulic, This link has an article you may find interesting Trailer Brake Controllers What Wrong and What Right PickupTrucks com News

I have a seven plug for my trailer on the back of my silverado. what do i need to do to hookup my elect brakes on my trailer to the truck


Do you already have a factory installed brake controller, or are you installing an aftermarket brake controller? Also, take time to check owners manual in fuse section for possible circuit already in fuse/power distribution box (under hood) and would require you to just insert recommended fuse.

I installed a trailer brake controler on my 2000 Chevrolet Silverado. The truck has the factory Tow/haul package.There is a blue wire which I think is the wire for the trailer brakes in the underhood...


If I understand you correctly you have found the blue wire in the chassis wiring but don't know where to hook it up. It doesn't hook up to the truck, you connect it to the blue wire coming from your brake controller. You will have to drill a hole or poke a hole in an existing grommet in the firewall to get the wire through. There should be another wire usually orange or red along with the blue wire in the truck wiring that you hook up to the load center under the hood on one of the unused studs. It is for the charge circuit on your trailers if so equipped. You will probably need to install a fuse for the stud. It should be clearly marked on the load center lid.

2009 Silverado 4x4 pickup with towing package and factory installed Trailer Brake controler installed at factory. The system has worked in past. I had my Stock trailer rewired and things tested out fine...


It sounds like you lost a ground.
check traier hookup first.
Probably not the controller.
P.S. There are multiple fuses for this setup. check all ! ! !

1999 Silverado 1500: does my chevy 99 1500 come with trailer brakes...


if its set up for trailers with brakes, it should have small black box under the dash above the pedals; if there is one you can adjust the brake timing to syncronize the trailers brakes with the trucks; if there is not one you can purchase one and mount it and run a few wires

Trailer plug has no power for left brake turn light works


Look in the power center under the hood, these trucks have seperate fuses for truck and trailer lights, and I suspect the one for the left side is blown. If the fuse is not blown I would start by inspecting the harness where the trailer plug is attached. Sometimes if these are not factory units, people do a prety sloppy job with the installation. The connections should be soldered and not just twisted together and taped, and heaven forbid they used Scothlok connectors.

Were do you hook up the two wires under the hood for trailer brakes on a 2000 silverado


Sometime around 2000, GM started putting trailering pre-wire harnesses in the vehicle. Your truck may have this harness built in and would greatly simplify brake controller installation. Look under the glovebox and see if there is a wire harness tied off. There will be four wires in this harness, which should be run over to the steering column to use it. Most trailer brake controllers are compatible with this harness.
The four wires in the harness are: Red, 12vdc; black, ground; blue or purple, brake pedal; and brown or white, trailer brake wire to seven pin, four pin, or five pin connector at trailer hitch, if your truck came from the factory with a trailer hitch.
If you are adding the hitch and do not have the four wire harness, the under hood wires from your brake controller are Red, connect to one of the studs under the distribution box cover (the distribution box is on the driver's side against the firewall. Underneath the cover are two large threaded studs which are hot from the battery all the time); and the other wire from your brake controller would have to be run the length of the truck along the frame, tied off in several places, to the trailer hitch connector on the bumper. Follow the directions that came with trailer hitch wiring connector to connect this wire to the proper pin in the connector.
If this has helped you, great, and please remember to vote/comment.
Good luck!
