Question about 2005 Chevrolet Silverado
I have a 2005 Chevrolet 2500HD pick-up with Duramax Diesel. The trailer connection is a typical 7 prong receptical. When I apply the brakes, the brake lights on the truck come on but the right rear trailer brake light does not come on. The problem is with the truck, not the trailer. Using a test lamp I find there is no electrical current for the right side trailer brake light at the recepticle where the trailer wiring harness plugges in. In fact, as I trace the towing wiring harness all the way forward and under the hood, I still have no power for the right side brake lamp. I removed the fuse box cover under the hood and actually lifted the fuse box out of it's holder/bracket exposing the mass of wires underneath. It was at this point that I decided to seek some additional help. I managed to fine one wire (dark blue) that lights the test lamp when the brakes are applied. This wire runs to what appears to be a relay. Is it possible that a relay can be the problem here? If so, which relay would it be and where is it located in relation to the others in the fuse box? I do not have a wiring schematic of the truck so I don't know what color of wire to look for that may be causing the problem nor to which of several relays that it may be running to. The wires coming from the firewall (and the brake peddle switch) to the fuse pannel are a different color than the ones leaving the fuses and relays. Thank you for your help.
Did yo check the fuse panel inside the truck its located on the drivers side dash , you have to open the driver side door, in there is a 10 amp fuse that is linked to rt trailer brakes and rt turn signal for the trailer, if the fuse is good there is a black box under the dash located on the floor on the driver side, just to the left of the break, thats where must of the plug in wire harness is for the trailer breaks!
