What you will need to rewire your trailer is patience and a few other items.

You will need are two people, a circuit tester, and some electric tape.
One peson will be activating the brake pedal, blinker, and headlight switch as you use the tester to see which color wire is doing what.

The pig-tail you will have will have the wires hanging from the back of it..plug it in and check the wires as the other person does whatever you're telling them too.

It really is a easy thing to do, but it's time consumming if you've never done anything like this before.

easiest way to rewire a trailer is a six pack of someone's favorite beer, and the persons phone number.

Good luck

Which wire from indicator switch goes to flasher relay im using a narva 2 pin flasher relay in a 2002 holden rodeo one positive from battery an wht colour would it be from the switch or is it 2 wires


There could be no relay in the vehicle because it doesn't need one. CANbus vehicles tend to use a single module to carry out all the vehicle timing requirements - indicators, hazards, wipers, courtesy lights and so forth.
If the flashers don't work it would be better to repair the system than to rewire and use an outdated method, perhaps introducing further fault codes that might affect the operation of other stuff.

A little used hazard switch is a common cause of flasher failure...

If you really must rewire the system, the (ignition) live, as you say, goes to one side of the flasher unit and the other to the centre contact of the indicator switch though you will need a wiring diagram to identify the colour. There is no single universal colour code though if I was looking at an old British car I would expect to see a dark green wire with a thin black trace line.

A wiring diagram will be useful also for identifying the wiring to the lamps and separating the hazard switch wiring from the circuit. If there are two dashboard tell-tale lights the 2-pin relay will be ok but if there is only one you will need a 3 or 4 pin unit depending on whether electronic or electro-mechanical.

I have a zanussi DA 4552, a rat has chewed through most of the machines wiring, i need a wiring diagram so i can try to rewire this machine, please can anyone help me with this


No idea to be honest but you must be able to find the colour of the wires at the ends and then re-connect them i would have thought unless its all the same colour wires ,or look at the council scrap yards and see if you see a similar machine and take the wireing out of it but take plenty of pics on the phone so you know where they all go ?.

Hello, if you have a test light handy with a sharp tip on one side than, start with your parking lights on and check to see which wire it is, if you have a heavy bag of potatoes or similar, you can use this when it comes to the brake lights :)

What colour wire is the stoplight feed that feeds the stop lights


I'm assuming you have a trailer towing package.
Below is the wiring diagram. It appears the dark blue is your stop lamp wire you may be looking for.
Let me know if anything is different.
