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.

I am having problems with the trailer lighting and brake lights on a trailer behind a 01 kenworth repalces relays and fuse on truck but no change on the trailer


Trailer lighting is notoriously unreliable, especially on commercially manufactured and wired trailers where the manufacturer tries to save money by using a chassis or body earth return instead of a fully wired system and the better quality lamps such a system would require.

In my experience eight out of ten trailer lighting problems are related to a ground or earthing fault or poor quality wire and poor quality terminals being used.
The other two out of ten related to problems with the plug and socket connection (car to trailer).

This is assuming the towing vehicle had the tow socket wired to a high standard in the first place and didn't use the notorious Scotchloc.
The Scotchloc device was adequate for some of the wiring to older vehicles that used thickly insulated thick wiring but they are totally unsuitable for wiring connections that are exposed to movement, dirt and moisture and the thin wiring of the modern vehicle. There are in addition to the blue coloured ones, also red and white more suited to thinner wiring and also a brown one for larger cables but blue seems to be the ones supplied most often and so these are the ones used most often and consequently are responsible for quite a lot of faults where a supply doesn't even reach the tow socket.

When searching for a fault it is best to check the towing vehicle electrics and the trailer separately. Plugging in a known good trailer or lighting board is the best way to check the car socket. I have made a box of tricks for checking both the car and trailer separately, including the grounds and supplies for fridge, battery charging, etc. It will also, with the aid of a lighting board, provide lighting to a towed vehicle that would otherwise have to be trailered.

Trailer plug does not have juice to it.......1997 ford expedition


Hi,
These plugs are usually hard wired into the rear lighting - Brake lights,Tail lights, indicators etc. You need to check the earth/ground wire also.
Trace the wiring and make sure there are no breaks in the wiring from the trailer plug.
Hope this helps.

Trying to wire boat trailer. I have turn signals, brake lights, emergency flashers but no running lights . I have on my rear tail lights on trailer a red and black wire wire hooked to left , yellow to red,...


Hi, I'm not clear about what you said. Please tell me the year and model of the truck and what color wires you have on the trailer. A normal 4-wire trailer has brown for tail, green for left and yellow for right. White is ground.

How do you find out if you have the wires for a tow package? Trying to hook up a trailer with electrical brakes.


The wires would be secured under the rear of the truck. However trailer wiring is only for trailer lighting. Electric trailer brakes require a trailer brake controller.

Brake Light wont go out


The brake lights stay on even when the vehicle has been restored to the "before" condition?!? Now that's strange. I'm assuming the brake lights worked properly before you did anything with the trailer hookup. Is that correct? Do the brake lights work OK when a trailer is hooked up to the trailer lighting harness? Regardless, if the brake lights stay on all the time, there is a continuous 12V to the bulbs to ground. You have a wiring short somewhere in the vehicle. Have you checked the wiring for bare spots (caused by rubbing) or cuts in the wires.

Since the brake lights won't turn off, you have created a continuous path of 12V through the bulbs to ground, regardless of the brake switch operation. If you did not use the plug in type of wiring harness to attach the "trailer plug", then I would systematically undo each wire that you attached to and see what fixes the problem. I assume you know that the Blazer has a trailer connection plug-in location tucked up under the rear bumper. You simply unplug the mating harnesses, plug in the trailer wiring connector, plug in the disconnected harnesses and wha-la you should be good to go.

Hope helps.

I have a problem when hooking up a trailer, the brake and turn signals work fine, but the lights that come on when you turn the headlights on do not, it is not a fuse problem, as the fuse is fine, and it...


test the connection with lights on using a test light, if none turn the test light on, make sure the ground is good, recheck your new connection. maybe it's connected to a relay, if it is, test the relay by bypassing it. it's all a process of elimination. a wiring diagram for a trailer is useless because people hook them up by the means they got. again, it's a process of elimination. to hook up the lighting, first do the tail lights, then the signal lights, thay are also used as brake lights as they are brighter

How do I get at the wiring to tie in a trailer


All the wiring you need is there in the trunk, and the harness plug you buy will have quick connectors to splice each lead.
So all you have to do is to run the wires out of the trunk.
You can drill a hole, but most people just loosen the bottom of a light lense, and stick it throught there.
The rubber usually is flexible enough to allow this.
But don't do it at the top, because then water could get in.

2006 HHR trailer wiring?


Check ground wire to the trailer. On the vehicle and the trailer. Make sure you have a good ground as lighting will seek any path for ground which will feedback and cause lights to act really weird.
