There should be a white wire grounded to the frame of your truck. Even of you have power to the 4 way plug if you have no ground it will not work. look under the rear find the wire and eyelet check the connection, such as no rust, also it would help if you trace the wire to the spliter where the trailer harness plugs into the tail light harness and apply dielectric grease to the inside of the plugs this keeps moister from interupting the connection, or causisng corrosion. also good to put in the trailer plug helps for easy pluging and unpluging and again eleminated corrosion.

Goto autozone and get a trailer hitch hookup and it just clips in on your tail lights for about 20 buck you can do your self!! I did this cause my dodge truck did not have one at all so i did that and my boat trailers lights worked!!

Relay and module


I think you might be talking about the "Trailer Lighting Converter" or the "Tow Ready" Tail Light Converter, or they may call it a trailer light module. This module plugs into the vehicles OEM harness. If this failed then you could have such symptoms. But they could also be talking about the "Trailer Light Socket" (your trailer electrical plug plugs into this socket). I hope this helps. If not try to give more details. Good luck.

Have no parking lights or dash lights. 2003 dodge dakota. tried new light switch. did not help


First thing to do is check the fuses. Sometimes they look good when they are actually blown. Get an OHM meter or run a jumper wire across the fuse and check if the lights work. If they do come on then replace the fuse. Then the next step would be to use a test light and make sure there is power to one side of the fuse. If there is no power then take it to a mechanic. There may be a bigger electrical problem. Good Luck!

Trailer hitch...no running lights (2004)


You'll have to follow the BROWN wire from the factory connector(with the running lights on of course) to the trailer connector and make sure you are getting power all the way to the two lamp fixtures. If so you've probably got two burned out 1157 bulbs or an inline fuse in the factory harness/ trailer harness.Good Luck, Dana

Most auto parts stores will carry the Hoppy or Hopkins wiring kits. This kit will allow you to plug right in to the exsisting wiring without having to cut or splice anything. If they don't have it on hand, they should be able to order it.
