Wire harness for trailer

The colors of the wires on my 2000 GMC Jimmy don't match up with the colors on the wire harness I just bought. Can you tell me how to match them up?

You will need a test light, don't worry about the colors. Four wires, one for left turn signal, one for right turn signal, one for parking lights, and one is ground(usually black). Hook up ground, turn on trucks left signal and hookup to one of trailers other three wires, you will either light up the correct light or wrong one just continue til lights match coming off your truck to what you want to light up. And brake lights are left and right signal, so if you do signals the brake light will work. I can explain further if you need help.

Wire trailer brake controler on ford pickup


There usually is an open harness plug under the dash. When you buy a brake controller, the instructions should come with it. The better units will have a pigtail which will plug right into the other half of the open harness plug.

If the kit you have has the pigtail connector, but loose wires needing to be connected, see if the color of the wires match those on the open connector. Then match the color of each wire.

Some years of trucks will have a heavy duty flasher to install in the Powerbox to accommodate the extra trailer lights.

Have issues with trailer lights. Both turn signals on trailer flash when I use left or right turn signal. Have 7 pin factory plug. Lights on trailer work fine, hooked up to 97 Silverado. Act funny on 2000...


Standard wiring colors are as follows:

4-Way

5-Way

6-Way

7-Way

Green

Yellow

Brown

White

Red

Blue

Purple

Right Turn & Brake

Left Turn & Brake

Tail Lights

Ground

Backup Lights

Electric Brakes

Auxiliary Power
Green- Right Turn and Brake
Yellow- Left Turn and Brake
Brown- Tail Lights
White- Ground
Red- Reverse (Back Up) Lights
Blue- Electric Brakes
Purple- Auxiliary Power

It sounds like your green and yello wires are shorted together somewhere along the length of the harness. I would check the wires on the trailer first. Easier yet, if you have another trailer to connec or access to another to use for testing, connect to it and see if the problem repeats; if it does the trouble is in the vehicle's wiring.

I have a 1997 Aerostar and would like to wire for trailer lights. I opened the panel on the left side just in front of the tail lights and found a couple wiring receptacles. Are these for trailer...


if they have color coded wires that are brown,green,yellow and black then its possible.but i don`t think so.you can buy a trailer wire adapter that just plugs into the car factory wiring so you don`t have to splice(solder) the wires into the car wiring and it will show you the area for the connection and picture.if you don`t want to go that route then the tail light wires colors are brown.the left signal color is yellow and the right is green and the ground wire on the car is black but on the trailer wire harness it is white.

Trying to splice wiring harness for trailer lights


there is no need to splice wires especially on a 02, you can get a trailer harness at any autoparts store that will connect into your original harness. Dont get me wrong you can splice into it but do you really want to ??
