My 2003 montario sport gets hot when I accelerate also the brake and battery lights are on. I have heat and coolants full. Also power drains when accelerating so it must make the fan malfunction?


Battery light, Bad alternator or fuse. Brake light, low brake fluid. Getting hot could be from the fans not working properly. Could be a stuck thermostat, clogged radiator, Inside or outside.

Wiring Different Trailer Types - Highlander


Hello all,

For those of you that need to wire up a trailer or have to occasionally borrow trailers and look at the wiring plugs with disdain (I mean face it they don't make sense, grd is white, +12vdc is black, etc), this is for you.

Plug Types/Application
7 Way - RV Trailers, Horse and Utility Trailers
6 Way - Horse, Stock and Utility
4 Way - Utility Trailers

Columns are: Color, Function, Mark on the plug.

Seven wire Trailer plugs:

Horse, stock or utility trailers:

White = Ground - 1
Blue = Electric Brakes - 2
Brown = Tail and clearance lights - 3
Black = Battery, aux power - 4
Yellow = Left turn/Brake - 5
Green = Right turn Brake - 6
Orange or Purple (not both) = Auxilliary or Reverse - 7

Recreational Vehicle:
White = Ground - 1
Blue = Electric2_bing.gif Brakes - 2
Green = Tail and clearance lights - 3
Black = Battery, aux power - 4
Red = Left turn/Brake - 5
Brown = Right turn Brake - 6
Yellow = Auxilliary or Reverse - 7


Six wire trailer plugs:

Horse, stock or utility trailers:
White = Ground - GD
Yellow = Left turn/Brake -LT
Green = Right turn Brake -RT
Brown = Tail and clearance lights - TM
Red or Black (not both) = Battery2_bing.gif, aux power - A
Blue = Electric Brakes - S

Recreational Vehicle: (color, use, plug mark)
White = Ground - GD
Brown = Right turn Brake - RT
Green = Tail and clearance lights -TM
Black = Battery, aux power - A
Red = Left turn/Brake - LT
Blue = Electric Brakes - S


Four wire plugs:
White = Ground
Yellow = Left turn/Brake
Green = Right turn Brake
Brown = Tail and clearance lights


Ground should be 10ga.
Others 14 ga

A test light and a 12VDC power source can be handy for trouble shooting.
Best regards
Mike

I have a 2001 Chevy Silverado and my brake light hitch cover isn't lighting up when I hit the brakes. The 4 pole connector is hot(getting power) but the brake light cover isn't lighting up when I hit the...


Check connection and ground. Since the brake light pin on your wiring harness has power, check that the wiring harness ground pin has zero ohms to ground. If the harness is good and the hitch light works on a battery, then there is either a bad connection from the pin to the hitch light or from hitch light to ground.

The battery light and the brake light come on. This just started yesterday. We replaced the battery and front brakes two weeks ago. Is this just a glitch in the computer?


When you replaced the battery, did you have the alternator tested? The battery light indicates either the battery is not holding a charge or not receiving the proper power from the alternator to charge the battery.
The brake lights could be a glitch but it could also mean that you are low on brake fluid or you have air in the brake system. Suggest you at least check the fluid level in the master cylinder and bleed the brakes.

Brake light abs light battery light on windows rolling up and down slow and power window barly working


brake light- check level of brake fluid.

abs light- have car scanned with ABS Brake Scan Tool (OBD-II compliant).

battery light- The alternator probably is not charging the battery enough when running. Possible bad battery if one lets it go too long.

Battery light and brake light were on, card wont


Nissan truns the brake and battery light on when there is a charging issue. When you say it wont start does that means it craks or no? If it does not crank I would attempt to charge the battery then try to start it and check the charging system.
