there is likely a wire that goes from your brake pedal switch to the trailer brake controller this wire is probably broken or not hooked up. if it is hooked up and no wires are broken I would start making sure everything is hooked up right.
If all the lights work properly with the trailer wiring not connected then the truck itself is fine. If attaching the trailer wiring causes the lights to permanently stop working on the truck then you are blowing a fuse and it will need to be replaced. Your owners manual will show you where the fuse panel is. You should be able to check the wiring plug at the back of the truck to be sure it is working properly with a test light and a helper. If the power for signals/brakes etc are not all working at the plug, then trace back and fix these. If all is good at the truck's plug, then the trailer wiring must be faulty. Again, go through it and fix anything that is broken or corroded. Of course it goes without saying, make sure all the bulbs are good.
the unit you buy will have the instructions for getting a 12 volt feed from the fuse box (never direct of the battery has to have a fuse )
the unit slide controller will be near the driver side and a 12 volt wire will run through that controller inside the car to the back of the car to the trailer plug connection matching up with the wires to the trailer/caravan horse float .electric brakes
Hi, this may true if you connected the trailer brake to the connector on the factory wiring harness. There are several fuses that are needed for trailer towing. In the box by the battery, fuses 13, 25, 27, 53, and 54 are needed. You will need a relay in relay slot 19 for the trailer running lights, a relay in relay slot 20 to charge the trailer emergency battery; and, if your trailer has backup lights (6 or 7 wire connector), you will also need a relay in the relay slot 15. If you did not use the factory connector for your trailer brake controller, check to make sure you have connected the controller to an appropriate power source in the truck. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
First thing is your van equipped with a trailer brake controller and is it working. This is usually a small box that is installed inside the vehicle and is needed to operate the brakes. Next what type of plug do you have on the vehicle to plug the trailer into some plugs do not support wiring for trailer brakes. If you have a aftermarket trailer brake controller it will not be fused in the fuse panel so you will to locate a inline fuse used to power up the controller. Hope this helps.
I had a hardtimefinding this informaton, hope it helps.
