Question about Cars & Trucks
Wires are coming out of plug in
Part of the main harness. Once the wires leave the multi-function's harness connector, the wires go everywhere.
So the wires are pulling out backward out of the plastic connector? There is a feature on the wire terminals to keep them in place on a connector and not let them slip back out. A tiny little metal clip on top of the wire terminal is raised just enough that when the terminal is inserted into the plastic plug, the clip will ride over a bump in the plastic, then be raised enough that when pulling on the wire from the back, the clip will prevent wire from being pulled out. Look at the loose wires and find that little metal clip (on the top of the terminal pin), bend it up and try re-inserting the wire into the plastic connector. When it slides in and locks in place, and will not come back out, you have done it right.. I hope I understood you right, and this is helpful. Good luck.

Checked all fuses under hood for towing package etc. May not even be one in there yet if you've never used it before. Checked owners manual?

You can sometimes get replacement connectors with pigtails at auto parts stores but the easiest way is to bring your VIN number to a GM dealer and get one there. Most connectors are available and having a VIN number along helps the parts guy get the correct one. Usually the new wires are plenty long and give you a little room to work with when splicing them into the harness. I use crimp type connectors and then wrap the connectors with electrical tape to protect the new connections from the elements. If the insulation has just pulled back away from the connector and the wires and connector are good yet [just bare] then you may be able to save the connector by coating the bare wires with liquid tape then carefully wrapping the individual wires with a layer of electrical tape after the liquid tape has fully dried.
