    I am using a peterson mfg light kit. it has 3 wires + a white ground wire coming from the wiring harness. The directions say that if my turn signals and brake lights are wired seperately on my vehicle, I need to use an electronic converter in addition to the kit. I have tried to wire in an electronic converter made by hopkins model # 48925. the peterson light kit is v544

  • dedw8dug Apr 17, 2009

    It is a 2000 nissan frontier. I bought the light kit at walmart, but as mentioned the instructions say that if the turn signals and brake lights are wired seperately, I need the converter.

  • dedw8dug Apr 17, 2009

    I have the converter and have tried to wire it. but I am not getting the lights to work. I am trying to identify what the color codes are for the brake lights, tail lights and turn signal lights. I am pretty sure that the turn signal lights are yellow 1 with a green stripe and the other with a red stripe. I have gotten the brake lights to work only when the key is in the off position.

    I am trying to find out about the color codes for the wires on my truck.

  • dedw8dug Apr 17, 2009

    i already had the color codes to the converter. I was really hoping you might know the color codes for the wires on my truck. any ideas?

    I am trying to hook up a boat trailer harness to my 2000 nissan frontier. I am here to ask the color codes for the wires on my pickup

  • dedw8dug Apr 17, 2009

    I am trying to splice a wiring harness for a boat trailer into a 2000 nissan frontier. I am simply trying to find out what the color codes are for the rear light wiring harness in the rear of my pickup. I am refering to the wires located and attached to my pickup. All I am looking for would be the color codes on the pickup. I don't understand diagrams and have not been able to identify the wires using a multimeter. I just want to know what color the wires are on my pickup for tail lights, brake lights, and turn signal lights.

This is a very complecated question indeed -
Here are a few prints I have of the electrical system.

L/R is the common power wire for all the tail lamps.

Br/R is the common power wire for the BrakeLights.

B is the common ground wire.

Usually, you will need a Constant power & switched power for the relay - and the wires above activate the relays to allow power to the taillights.

Thanks for using FixYa - if you require any other prints - let me know, and I'll look for them.

Thanks!!

What kind of vehicle are you driving and what year first
most foreign cars have to have a converter to run trailer lights
the best thing to do is buy a trailer wiring kit with a converter built in
wal-mart has them for almost all makes and models
very easy to wire in
my personal preference is to buy the type of trailer wiring that has a t-plug to plug directly into your vehicles wiring no cutting and splicing but for this type of plug you will have to go to a trailer shop or a good parts store

    your truck definitely needs the wiring with the converter

  • Jeff Adkisson

    you are asking the colors of the wiring in your truck?? or the color code of the trailer lights??



  • Jeff Adkisson

    ground=white
    brown=tail lights
    yellow= left turn
    red=brake
    green=right turn
    the wires off your converter go to these functions
    take a test light and find your tail light wire on the truck first and attach the brown wire
    then find the left turn wire on your truck and attach the yellow wire
    find the brake light wire on the truck with your test light and attach the red wire to it
    then find the right turn wire on the truck and attach the green wire from the converter to it

    they use so many different harnesses i would not even want to make a guess
    it is easy to figure them out with a test light

I have a standard 4 flat trailer plug on my truck but my trailer plug is also a 4 flat plug but has two brown wires going to one prong. how do i hook them together to make all my lights on trailer work


The 4-wire flat plugs usually have a white (ground), green (right brake/turn) yellow (left brake/turn) and brown (taillights - left and right). If your brake and turn lights work but the taillights don't, check the plugs (trailer and truck sides) for corrosion, and chek both the trailer and truck wiring harnesses for chafed insulation and bare conductors on the brown wires. Likewiae if the taillights work and the brake/turn lights don't, perform the same checks on those wires. And last but not least, be sure that the white wires (truck and trailer) are grounded well to the truck body and trailer frame.

2007 Chevy silverado (classic). Once hooked up to trailer, the brake lights do not work only turn signals on trailer.


firat of all check and make sure you have a real good ground or otherwise you will lose current to another wire and this can short out and cause the lights to malfunction.

White: Ground
Brown: Running
Yellow: LT and Stop
Green: RT and Stop

This is the wiring code for the 4 wire trailers and
Wire a round seven-pin hitch, typically sold without a wiring harness, to the vehicle observing the following color codes: Run a white 10-gauge wire between ground and terminal one, run the blue 12-gauge wire between the electric brake controller and terminal two, the brown 14-gauge wire between the taillights and terminal three, the black 10-gauge wire between the permanently live 12-volt supply and terminal four, the yellow 14-gauge wire between the left turn/brake light and terminal five, the green 14-gauge wire between the right turn/brake light and terminal six and the purple 14-gauge wire between the backup light and terminal seven (in the center).

When i hook my trailer to my 2002 ford superduty i have no running lights on trailer.brake and signal lights work fine.WHY?


Hello, if you only have taillights on the trailer and no side markers, check your bulbs first. The bright side is used for the Brakes and turn signals and the normal filament is used for the running lights.

If you use a test light you can find the pin on the connector which runs the Running lights. Sometimes the wiring harness will pick up the running lights off of the taillight in the bed of the truck. You would look for a wire going up into the taillight housing from the Trailer plug.

If you are the original owner of the truck there was a small package of Relays and wire ends that came in a plastic bag. It could be stored with the jack. This package had wire color information and instructions for Electric brakes. It also color-coded the Trailer plug-in socket as they use the extra pin holes for the Electric brakes. All the wires are discussed.

If an aftermarket unit was wired in the running light, the wires could be any color. The industry tried to put in a standard, but instructions still say if you don't have one color, its another. That is still vague.

I am connecting a trailer towing harness to my Nissan 2004 Titan (2wd), to tow my boat and need to know what the color codes to the parking, stop, and reverse wires are.


if you go to the parts store they make them ready to plug in you will have to just unplug the tail lights and plug the wire harness inplace of it then itll plug back into the original spot.

Do the 2009 Nissan Frontiers have a turn signal flasher? I had a 2'' ball hitch installed and when attaching the boat trailer to the hitch the trailer turn signals don't work. When they hooked up the boat...


check for signal ground,this is not a metal ground, use a test light or volt meter to see if they at plug before you plug in the trailer, you may need to rewire the trailer.

Parking lights on Nissan Frontier on - trailer parking not. 4 pin connector to factory connector (after market sealed wiring) - brake and turn signals work - no power to "brown" wire at factory connector...


First check the fuses. There may be one for trailer running lights. Check also power at the harness. If the brake lights and turn signals are seperate, there has to be a converter from 5 to 4 wire. For the power to feed back to the brake lights it sounds like the vehicle wiring is direct and not using a converter... or one of the bulbs on the trailer is contacting both contacts. Try http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx and maybe get a simple 4 pin tester that plugs into the 4 pin connecter. Hope this helps.

I need to hook up a boat trailor Whats the color code for a 1995


I suspect that the 4 wire harness includes a ground, so you may not be able to connect both brake lights and turn signals, which are separate lamps on the pickup. You may need to get an adapter.

In any case, the color codes on the pickup are:

Tail lights -- pink/blue
Brake Lights -- green/yellow
Left turn signal -- gray/blue
Right turn signal -- gray/red
Ground -- black

Pressing brake causing blinker issue


The trailer harness that was installed probably has a short inside the box that distributes power to the trailer pig-tail. Remove the trailer harness. You problem will be cured.
