    IF EVERYTHING WORKS UNTIL YOU CONNECT THE TRAILER THE PROBLEM IS MOST LIKELY NOT WITH THE 4 RUNNER

Sounds to me to be a groung issue. Have you tried to hook an external ground between the truck and trailer? If you got everything at the plug thats not the problem.

No power to trailer turn signals and brake lights. everything else works.


make sure to check the wiring on the trailer and to make sure that there is no damage or loose wireson the hook ups themselves. the wres could have come loose on your truck where they hook into the hook up for the trailer wiring. if any wire has come loose or the ground wire for the lights have come off, they will not work.

Batt wont charge on my trailer from my 2009 f-150


Here's a wiring diagram

If you look at the illustration, it shows the center is an auxiliary power source. If there's nothing hooked on the tow vehicle's plug, you may need to run a wire to the switched side of the starter solenoid. Make sure you fuse it with an inline fuse. Make sure your wire in sufficient gauge and your fuse is ample to protect all your circuitry. you may even want to put a 20a circuit breaker inline and then run from cable that at least matches or is a gauge size higher than the trailer's aux power cabling size..

Trailer brakes


Take a 12 volt test light... the kind that has a spring loaded clip to hold the probe into the wire, and insert it into the wire just before the trailer plug, vehicle side. (Blue I think) If there is a connection, the brake should see it and you should have an indicator light. When you activate the brake the test light should lite up. If not, move up to the brake actuator and test the blue wire. If there is nothing at the actuator, check the black wire. It is power to the controller. If no power there, check fuses again. If it does pick it up at the plug, connect the trailer and test the trailer itself. First ground to the trailer and then to the truck. Most problems are ground wire related. Then move to the axle and test it there. For the brakes to work, and even show on the indicator, there has to be a ground and power to the brakes themselves. There are 2 wires to each brake... a ground and a power. Test across both wires to make sure you have power and ground. You can also hook another trailer to your truck or another truck to your trailer. Lights can work through trailer ball ground. Brakes can't. leave the trailer unhooked from the trailer and hook the wiring up and test the lights. That usually will indicate a good or faulty ground. Also make sure there is a GOOD ground to the truck frame/body. Also try http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx. They have a great website with lots of info. Hope this helps. Mike
