There are 2 systems. you mixed them, (bad_)
that takes a special adapter.
if in USA, ask the Uhaul shop for where to get the correct adapter.

your trailer is wired, old fashion, with separated wire to each function.
the car is not. (wired like 60 chevy)

option 2, is go to jeep and get the trailer kit. bingo.

option 3.?

Did you use a wiring adapter? this plugs into the stock system to properly power the trailer lights. the other thing is you could have a short to ground in the trailer wiring, especially where it comes out under the jeep.

This is the OEM / Factory set up for trailers from my 1990 FSM. Note that they used a flat-5 connector instead of the typical flat-4 plug that 99% of the known universe uses. I don't know if newer XJ's came with the flat-4... The 7-conductor schematic is typical although you'll find that some agricultural / horse trailers are wired differently (click image for zoom)...

Here's a scan of the "instruction sheet" that came with my utility trailer's flat-4 wiring kit. (Retouched for clarity.)

Cant get running lights to work on trailer


you need a ground wire also..add a ground and it should work.. trailer wiring is like this..white/ground..brown/tail..yellow/brake..and two greens a lighter one for left signal and a darker one for right.. find each one seperately on the jeep because these colors wont match it..and hook them up independently before taping the whole thing up..be checking and adding heavier fuses like 25 or 30 amp due to the extra wire load..

Where is the trailer fuse located on a 2012 jeep grand cheroke


depends if the person , installing trailer setup
used the factory kit
or just cut in to your wiring.

my 2010 WK has a fuse.
why not say what fails.? first.
brakes
blinkers L and R
parking lights.
and if the cars lights are effected?????? or hazards.

which location, will the fuses are all under-hood.
the operators guide names them all , lost that.

the factory kit comes with trailer relays to add to system.
this protects the system best from trailers that short out.
best is to set it up like that. using real jeep kit.
but we can fix yours. as soon as you answer the questions.
im not posted all fuses for all 4 circuits,

Trailer running lights


try http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx. They have very good concise information that might help. It sounds like the converter is getting hot and losing connection. Check all grounds.
