Best to pop in to your local Subaru dealer and ask them what is required for wiring in a trailer plug, a lot of new vehicle require special equipment to prevent damage to the electronics that control the lighting on the vehicles, especially those that have LED style lights on them. Get a quote from them on cost of them doing the job, and for the parts only if you want to get someone else with a cheaper labour rate to do it.

Hope this helps,
Mark.

2008 dodge 1500 4wd tail light wire harness color code with trailer hitch


If you adding a trailer light harness, you can buy a seperate harness from most auto parts stores that will plug right in. There should be a connector near the rear of the truck that you can unplug, and add the trailer harness. It's simple and fast and you don't end up making a mess of your wiring. I suggest puting some "dielectric grease" on the connections to prevent corrosion.
Flat 4 connector.
Brown is tail lights and marker lights.
Yellow and Green are turn and stop. I think yellow is left.
White is ground.

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!

Tow bar wiring


You need a Trailer Light Power Module - Uhaul, or anywhere that sells hitches and accessories. The module will power the lights directly from the battery - it still hooks into your car's lighting system, but only for sensing purposes, it doesn't put an extra load on the lighting system.

Here's an example from Uhaul:
