Testimonial: "There is no brake switch on the 2010 enclave and newer models. There is only a sensor switch and attaching which sends a signal to the computer. Wiring to this sensor will fry the wire and a $400 expense.. I learned the hard way. Is there another way of attaching the controller?"

Brake controller or trailer brakes connections or brake light to run system


The brake switch at the pedal does have six wires, but none go to the multifunction switch (on the steering column). The white wire with tan tracer goes to the combination flasher to be integrated with the turn signals/hazard lights. The combination flasher is under the dash next to the steering column and has a sixteen pin connector (ten of which have wires).

Missing license plate wiring and complete assembly. How do I splice in to the trailer or tail lamp wiring? Off the "brown wire"? Is it really that easy?


These are the diagrams basically from the headlamp switch going back to the license plate lamps. The main splice after the headlamp switch going back is in the main harness near the warning chime module. If you need a larger picture or the entire outside lighting wiring, feel free to email me at csautomotivecars@att.net with all your vehicle information. Yes it is that simple by just splicing into the main rear light wiring at the brown wire. Hope this is what you were looking for.....

1. connect the red wire to the stop lamp switch lead on the brake control. Connect the other end of red wire to the stop lamp switch in the vehicle using the splice connector

2. connect the blue wire to the trailer brake lead on the brake control. Route the other end of the blue wire to the trailer connector at the back of the vehicle.

3. connect the white wire to the ground lead on the brake control. Route the other end of the white
wire to the vehicle’s battery. Use the ring connector to connect the white wire to the battery’s negative terminal.

4. connect the black wire to the power lead on the brake control. Route the other end of the black wire to the vehicle’s battery. Use the fuse assembly to connect the black wire to the battery’s positive terminal.

Wiring diagram from truck to trailer


Get a tester light the type with an alligator clip and a sharp point.
Check each wire for your brake lights,blinkers etc.
i.e. With the blinker light on find the correct wire and splice into it with the corresponding light on the trailer. ( DO NOT CUT THE TRUCKS WIRE)
Remove the covering and twist the plug wires around it and tape or shrink wrap if you can.
Hope this helps

No brake lights


The two wires running the length of the truck are most likely a 12volt pwr supply,a ground or trailer brake signal wire.usually for charging a camper trailer battery and trailer brakes, check the brake lamp fuses in your fuse centre,most likely 10a.replace if open.if they still are inop,check with a test lamp to see if pwr is at the light sockets,(clamp of test light to good ground,usually white wire for brake)if no pwr is there then make your way to where the trailer plug was installed and check for pwr there(make sure your brake peddle is depressed during these tests,with key off as not to pwr up the park lamps)also check the ground at the same time(usually black)by reversing your test lamp(clamp to 12v)your brake switch could also be faulty(switch with button on arm of brake peddle).pick up a chiltons or haynes service manual to help with wiring diagrams and wire colors.

2001 Sportage Trailer wire connections


brown to the tail lights. yellow to left turn signal. green to right turn signal. this is a basic 3 wire hook-up i use all the time w/4wire connectors for all trailers. white wire is not used. ground is established when you hook to the ball.
to find the correct wire to splice to, use a testor (has a clip to the bare wire, and a sharp point to the truck frame). using a needle, push it through a wire to rear light harness. turn on the turn signal. check if the connection is the blinker, testing until you have the blinker wire. the tail lights can be attached to the license plate wire. brakes and blinkers use same wire, so brake lights will work whenever the turn signal is attached.
to be sure everything is working right, have a second person go inside the truck and work the signals, brakes and lights one at a time while you are at the back of the trailer telling what to do.

Trailer wiring 7 way


dO NOT SPLICE WIRES.. You bought a 45000 dollar truck, spring for a wiring T --25 bucks.. ( plugs between main harness and Tail lights.. ) --Available at most good auto parts.. Painless wiring also has a kit.

If you did already cut or splice into your wires, take that **** loose.. Shrink wrap the dammage.. Silicone over srink wrap.. Wire will corrode.. if you did manage to get spliced wires to work,-- in a few years or sooner you will have issues with the connections..Can you say short circuit.. Moisture and loose connections are a thing of the past with sealed tap in wiring.. Plug and play..

If any of this is over your head, get a friend who knows, or a tech to help.. Don't jerry rig a 45,000 dollar new Truck.. Come ON..!!!!!
