I had the same problem and looked everywhere for the part, car is to old to buy switch from
dealership, checked out after market stores, no one carries the part, I ended up going to junk yard and bought the whole panel, then found that the problem was not the switch but the switch connector fits loose and doesn't make a good connection.

SOURCE: best way to wire a trailer

You may want to go to a trailer rental place like U-haul and have them put in the wire. You want your wire to match anything you plug in like a boat trailer. They would have the experience and if your trailer wires on the utility are not lighting the correct lamp, you can change your trailer end of wires and know that the car has the correct system for anything.

SOURCE: How do you hook up trailer light harness for 1999

Most vehicles have an accessory plug in under the rear bumper of that vintage. You could visit your dealer and ask them for a kit($$$$) or get a simple 4 pin flat connector and do the wiring your self. You need to tie into the brake/running lights. Both of the rear turn signals, and a ground. If you are not a good electrician or even fair one get some one to help you.

Relay and module


I think you might be talking about the "Trailer Lighting Converter" or the "Tow Ready" Tail Light Converter, or they may call it a trailer light module. This module plugs into the vehicles OEM harness. If this failed then you could have such symptoms. But they could also be talking about the "Trailer Light Socket" (your trailer electrical plug plugs into this socket). I hope this helps. If not try to give more details. Good luck.

2001 dodge caravan gauge cluster not working


Check to see if trailer wiring was wired correctly, I've seen similar issues where incorrect trailer wiring has damaged the vehicle wiring and cause electrical issues. Lets hope this hasn't happened. Unplug the trailer and test all circuits for functionality.

Wiring colour for connecting trailer lights


Your best bet is to go to an auto parts store or dealer and see if they have an adapter for trailer lights. Most of the newer vehicles have adapters the just plug into the existing wiring harness and you don't need to worry about splicing things. Also on some vehicles hooking up directly to the wiring harness doesn't work too well because of the circuit not being able to support the extra voltage drop. The adapter usually have that taken care of.

Trailer wiring problem. Tow vehicle is a 2008 Grand Caravan with 4 wire plug. Double checked, plug function works fine. When trailer is plugged to tow vehicle with tow vehicle lights OFF the trailer...


Most likely the brown wire from the trailer connector is connected to a constant battery voltage source, and it should be connected to the vehicle running light circuit, however someone might have wired the trailer connector up that way on purpose so that the trailer does not draw power from the vehicle running lights and possibly damage the vehicle running light circuit. (Dodge/Chrysler vehicles do have delicate lighting systems) Here are some images to help assist you, and the 4 way connector is the same as the 5 way connector just without the blue wire for the trailer brakes.

Utility trailer wiring to 1998 Dodge Carivan


Trailer end; Red=Brake
Brown=Running lights
Yellow=Left
Green=Right
White=Ground
You will need a turn and brake signal box IF, you have different bulbs for brake and turn lamps. If the brake and turn bulbs are one(red)lens than no box will be required. Thanks, Dana

I need the wiring code for a 2008 grand caravan so I can install a trailer hitch. How can I get this info?


You can buy an adapter that will go in between your rear lights & main harness under van at connector, that will allow you to hook it up correctly. If it's a small trailer & no brakes on it, you may get a way with a flat 4 connection, provided your signals & brakes light use same bulb, otherwise you will need a small inline converter wired in also. Get back if you need more clarification. If only flat 4 and no brakes req'd, you can splice in to wires inside rear hatch that go to tailights. You decide & let me know if you need help. P.S. All you need is a test light (12v) and some connectors.

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

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.

Trailer wiring diagram


Either buy an adapter that will go into your existing harness, usually up under, near rear bumper, you pull connector apart & put adapter in line, then you plug new flat4 into it. Otherwise I would pull inside covers of both tailights, use a 12 VDC light tester, and probe wires at right signal for flashing with blinker,and attach Green wire, from flat4 to it. Do same on left side & attach yellow flat 4 to it. Turn off blinkers, and just put your running lights on, Find wire with power on either side when running lights on, and attach brown flat 4 to it. Now find some clean metal in the area and attach white wire (ground) to it. Put inside covers back on & your done.

Trailer light hook up for towing


By an inline adapter, that goes between your main harness & tailights connection, and accepts flat 4 or whatever you require for trailer. Most automotive places have them, and perhaps even walmart.
