You can find wire connectors and wiring in salvage yards, but you might find the same problem. I would advise you to go to a dealer and buy it.

The left tail light on my trailer doesnt work.the stop and turn signal works . is there a fuse for it? i have 2011 gmc sierra 1500


There is a tail lights fuse for the truck, but not for the trailer.
First, check that your left tail light on the truck is working, if not fix the problem (new bulb, bad contact, fuse).
Then the obvious suggestions regarding the trailer are: Check the tail light portion of the bulb to be sure it is not blown. If good (best to put in new one to be sure), then check the wiring from the front of the trailer all of the way to the non working bulb, including every connection and at any place it is secured to the trailer frame. If all is good with the trailer circuit and bulb, then check the truck's trailer connector, including any adapters. If by chance the truck is wired with a flat 4 wire harness the problem may be solved (but usually the blinkers are the problem). Modern trucks require a 5 wire harness which self adapts to the standard 4 wire trailer circuit. Check for dc power (12 volts) from the truck's female connector. One wire will be ground, others will be taillights (turn on headlights), brake lights (have someone press brake pedal), and blinkers (turn on switch and blinkers).

When I turn on my blinker both blinks go on and when I step on brake front running lights come on


Could be a faulty ground at one of the rear lamps or possibly a wrong bulb has been fitted.

Certainly it seems the rear lamps will be a good place to begin the diagnostic process.

Cant resolve a blinker issue, Tried the easy stuff.


The signal wire going to the right front has a splice for the dash indicator, a wire branching off from the turn wire and going to the dash. It sounds like that right signal wire is broken or lost a connection before it splices off to the dash, so the problem sounds like it is under the dash, either coming out of the turn signal switch to the flasher or from the flasher to that splice. You may need a multi-meter to check voltages on that wire at various places under the dash. Ascertain which color wire you need to concentrate on. Check for voltage on it with key on and right blinker on-voltmeter will spike to battery voltage, then fall to zero as the flasher breaks voltage continuously, if checked after the flasher. If checked when leaving the turn switch, it should be a continuous signal on that wire. Think you better find a wiring diagram to find the right wire to check. Good luck.

Rear left blinker does not work and its not the bulb, i tried to replace the bulb and it still will not work. front left blinker works and so do the others, i tried wiggling a few of the wires underneath...


If the brake light on that side doesn't work then it's the socket. If you use 3157 bulbs then try prying the tabs in the socket first, if that doesn't work, replace the socket. if the brake light does work then you have a short/ broken wire. you will have to trace it back to the short

Left blinker flash fast, hit brake left blinker goes out left taillight goes out but both backup lights come on


Usually a fast flashing signal is because one of the bulbs is burned out or shorted out. If the signal and brakes use the same light which many cars do then check the wiring to it and replace bulb. If burns out again then it has a short between the signal switch and the actual light or the brake wiring to it is shorted.

Driver's side rear blinker light stays on w/headlights on


no year compass stated, so will do 1st year.
USA/ Car?? (we are USA forum so answers default to bingo us)
engine runs ok, all else runs OK> just lamps problems?
Just is very important word in the electric world.
Drivers ok? too. (engine cranks, runs and stays running?) (turns on many meal all that)
gen1 is 2006 to 2016, later is GEN2.
ill pick first years.
seems headlights/binkers (turns sigs) are shorted together or parks.
Park/(aka, tails) may be in the mix.

1: fuses check ok
2: battery fully charged, reads 12.6v key off rested, and 13.3 to 15vdc running,
3: check for wiring damage behind lamps on the effected sides.
and for trailer hitch from H3LL hacks. there? looking is first.
collision damage by other owners, is possible (if 2nd owner you)
now electrics have a chance to perform. good power.
This system is all networked now.. needs to be understood
the first step now is to SCAN it. that's right, what if the communications bus, cant all talking between modules.
those lamps are all run by a computer under the hood
called TIPM , the module insides is called the "electronics module. EM"
it has 4 blinker wires as an output. (not shared a key fact for diagnoses)

you said driver side blinker (left works better)
drivers in UK are on right.
the left side front and rear. my guess , NO not rear)
if true the problem is there, left front blinker.
wire damage there, even the LAMP it self can short, (get new one?)
blinker,
damage at TIPM , can be possible look there yet.
its just a computer and has transistor drivers. to lamps
and if it told to do something, and is told correctly(scans)
then its bad or its output wires are shorted.
try a new lamp ?

Refr. page 50 in the SM ( MK jeep service manual, SM)
and 52.(turns)

the 4 head lamp wires(power) all are seperate at the EM
not parallel at all. independent, x4
and last the park lamps are independant on the EM
that means if the lamps are good and wires good then the EM
is faulting.
or its getting wrong commands, on the CAN-BUSS network
now you know how it works,
better is get the SM and read, it covers ALL this, in vivid details.

Left blinker problems


That's an issue with wiring somewhere alont the line. There has to be a short somewhere. Hopefully for you the short is from the new taillight assembly being installed and it would be relatively easy to get to. Hope it helps!

2004 Expedition Wiring Color Codes


brown would be the parking light hot wire
green / white would be the blinker hot wire
black yes ground ,
but according to the schematics , **** this color combination only applies to the left front

the right front should be :
brown would be the parking light hot wire
black ground , and a white / light blue would be the blinker hot wire

do you need the rear colors ?

brown is parking on both left and right rears
black is ground on both
light green / orange left blinker / stop light hot wire
orange / light blue right blinker / stop light hot wire
