SOURCE: I would like a diagram

You don't really need a diagram, it's simple. If you open both tail light boxes in the trunk you will see at the connector on the bottom a yellow wire in the first position. That goes to the brake bulb. If both tail lights do not work, make sure you are getting power to the driver side light first, if it is not getting power, the passenger side will not work either, they are in line with each other. If it is only the passenger side not working, the bridging wire could be bad.. try jumping it. Also, make sure you are getting power inside the tail light bulb holder. The metal connections can come loose. If there is no power to the driver side tail light it could be the bulb failure relay, that is the round red relay in the rear left side of the fuse box behind the ash tray/ cigarette lighter below the radio in front of the shifter. You should be getting power to the third brake light in the rear window...that is a different circuit and will not be affected. Try changing out the bulb failure relay, it supplies the power to the tail lights.

Why are trailer LED running lights too bright? 2005 Jeep/2007 Harley. FIXED!! :)


brake lamps and parks are swapped
brakes are the high current lamps and much brighter.
you have them backwards.
AH ! LED lamps
and you really mean
the brake are too dim,,and parks are too bright.
and what is it not.?
it's not the jeep putting out too much voltage to TAILS. sorry its 13.3v to 15v running, on all cars.

what is it.?
well the lamps for tails/blinks are low power LED lamps. (like there relic cousins)
and brakes are higher intensity LED lamps (by LAW)
same with incandescent, (LED dont change DOT laws on candle power, sorry)

Missing license plate wiring and complete assembly. How do I splice in to the trailer or tail lamp wiring? Off the "brown wire"? Is it really that easy?


These are the diagrams basically from the headlamp switch going back to the license plate lamps. The main splice after the headlamp switch going back is in the main harness near the warning chime module. If you need a larger picture or the entire outside lighting wiring, feel free to email me at csautomotivecars@att.net with all your vehicle information. Yes it is that simple by just splicing into the main rear light wiring at the brown wire. Hope this is what you were looking for.....

Trying to get trailer wiring fixed. At the plug we have both brake lights and left turn signal, but nothing else. Have Mitchell's, but can't find trailer wiring diagram.


Check this site. Full of info and color codes. http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx
Did you use a direct plug that plugs into the harness or just a 4 way plug spliced in?
On this truck you will have to have a wiring converter... it will use turn signals and brake light (3 wires in) and convert them to a 2 wire which is what is required. Hope this helps, Mike

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.

2001 Sportage Trailer wire connections


brown to the tail lights. yellow to left turn signal. green to right turn signal. this is a basic 3 wire hook-up i use all the time w/4wire connectors for all trailers. white wire is not used. ground is established when you hook to the ball.
to find the correct wire to splice to, use a testor (has a clip to the bare wire, and a sharp point to the truck frame). using a needle, push it through a wire to rear light harness. turn on the turn signal. check if the connection is the blinker, testing until you have the blinker wire. the tail lights can be attached to the license plate wire. brakes and blinkers use same wire, so brake lights will work whenever the turn signal is attached.
to be sure everything is working right, have a second person go inside the truck and work the signals, brakes and lights one at a time while you are at the back of the trailer telling what to do.

Trailer wiring 7 way


dO NOT SPLICE WIRES.. You bought a 45000 dollar truck, spring for a wiring T --25 bucks.. ( plugs between main harness and Tail lights.. ) --Available at most good auto parts.. Painless wiring also has a kit.

If you did already cut or splice into your wires, take that **** loose.. Shrink wrap the dammage.. Silicone over srink wrap.. Wire will corrode.. if you did manage to get spliced wires to work,-- in a few years or sooner you will have issues with the connections..Can you say short circuit.. Moisture and loose connections are a thing of the past with sealed tap in wiring.. Plug and play..

If any of this is over your head, get a friend who knows, or a tech to help.. Don't jerry rig a 45,000 dollar new Truck.. Come ON..!!!!!
