Question about 1999 Mitsubishi Montero

1 Answer

Brake lights not working

I pulled a u-haul trailer plug that was installed wrong from my girlfriends 1999 montero. Now the brake lights dont work. I replaced the fuses under the hood that blew, and all of the other lights work, but for the life of me I cant figure out why the brake lights wont work. Any suggestions. She does'nt have a manuel is there a fuse under the dash for the brakes?

Yup, you have a dead short in the wiring, most likely the wire coating has rubbed through and the wire is touching the frame somewhere...I'd check first from the box back, and look for where someone installed a trailer plug, and got the wiring wrong...

Trailer fuse blows when hooked up


Is your truck wired for a 7 pin flat plug? if so are you using an adapter? The adapters are made differently. One has the center pin as brakes and the other uses the center as Aux. power. Any chance of an animal getting to the wires? They are kown to chew on the wiring. Also try http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx. They have a great website with lots of info.

Is this a 4 way or 6 way connection system? If your truck is wrong, then all factory equipped trailer package harnesses would be wrong, tell your trailer guy...I don't think so.
Is this the first trailer you have hauled?
Let me know, and we will go from there.

Trailer lights


7 way connector, running lights, including license plate light, should be a brown wire. Check the back of the plug receiver on the truck, u are going to have to follow it to see if it's mashed, cut, not connected properly to connector, or loose, corroded, or dirty connections at any splice. That should be the problem. Let me know what u find.

Turn signals blink on the wrong side


Your signals don't go through any computer (that is next year, HA,HA), either a connector is hooked up wrong (crossed) to the lights or the wires were worked on and not put back together correctly.

Trailer tail lights


I have this same problem with my truck. The U haul guys and I tried and tested every scenario, leaving out hard wiring behind the plug (where the adapter goes). I haven't tried it as I don't ever pull anything, however it can't to too hard to do.
