All trailer lights work on my travel trailer except there are no brake lights to trailer. The issue I can see is there is no power to the brakes at the 3:00 o'clock and 9:00 o'clock pins on my 2004 g

there will be only 1 power wire for the brake lights as they are connected .together. What you are looking at are the indicator lights (1 left wire and 1 right wire)

Trailer - brake lights don't work on one trailer - work fine on other....

You have to many bulbs running for the size wire you can get into a 7 pin plug. You will have to up grade to a heavy vehicle plug which is around 2" in dia.. Next the stop light draw 25 watts each so if you have 3 trailers that ia 6 x25 watts x12 volts will indicate how many amps you are pulling when the brakes come on. Next you can change the wiring so that each bulb is connected in parallel not series that is the first 2 lights have one wire the 2nd bulbs will have a different wire out of the same pin and so on for the rest of the trailers. So what you will have will be say for 3 trailers the trailer plug will have wire to the first trailer and out of the same pin will be another wire that will go to the socket for the second trailer and so on That way the wire carrying the load will be the vehicle wire that you should have relayed any way. So you have a big current wire to the relay that is connected to the power pin of the socket. The relay is activated by the stop light wire to earth. This closes the relay and the heavy wire conducts current directly to the stop light pin of the first trailer and is piggy backed to the second socket and so on.. IN the end you will have only 2 bulbs working on each wire and not a multiple of bulbs drawing current on the one wire

I dont know how to wire lights to trailer from 1986 toyota pickup

You need a "test light". Then you turn on the circuit you want to wire in, tail lights, brake lights, blinkers and poke around the back of your light sockets until the test light comes on. Then you splicew into that wire and run it to your plug in. If you don't know which wire is what on the trailer, hook it up and with the wire fastened into the truck harness, try it on the trailer harness wires until you get the proper lights working. Process of elimination. Hope this helps.

When hooking up trailer I get no left hand turn signal. Nissan turn signal works fine. Couldn't find a problem with harness or other wiring. Is there a fuse box I don't know about?

If the Nison lights are working it has to be the wireing from the car to the trailer or the left bulb or socket on the trailer. Also if this trailer wasen't wired for this spicific car it probably won't work right anyway. When checking the wireing I find that findind the ground wire on both the car and trailer are one and the same at the connection . Then it just a matter of checking each wire with a batery to determine which wire is for which light. And making the right connection to the car. Some cars the signal wire and the brake light wire are the same wire .

I tow an enclosed trailer with my 2002 freelander and the brake lights don't work on the trailer. I have the proper connector which works fine for the turn signals, the hazard flashers and the overall...

If the Brake light filaments in the globes are OK then you could have a bad connection some where in the brake light circuit from where the trailer connector cable is tapped into the vehicle wiring loom.
Start by disconnecting the trailer connector and checking on the vehicle socket for an indication that voltage is present by using a multimeter or test lamp while the brake pedal is pressed. If not OK, then the fault is either where the brake light wire is screwed into the socket or the connection in the vehicle wiring loom.
If OK then reconnect trailer plug and after removing cover, check the trailer plug where the brake light wire is screwed into it. If OK, then check where wire is connected at trailer lamps. If not OK, then there is a broken wire in the trailer cable.

No trailer lights to the plug at all. it has a tow package, could be be a fuse

What type of vehicle? What type of plug (4-way, 6-way, 7-way)? Could be a fuse. Did you put a volt-meter to the plug socket to check for power? Make sure the running lights are turned on, someone's pressing the brakes, and put the flashers on before you use the volt meter. Could be a bad ground on the vehicle or trailer. If it's a 7-way, the plug on the trailer end could be worn and need replacing. The socket on the truck could need replacing. If it's not a fuse and your volt meter gets no reading at the socket, take the socket off and check each wire with the volt meter. If you get readings, it's the socket. If you don't get readings, the problem is before the socket.

2005 crew cab tow package no rt turn on trailer truck works

to start u off - try running a hot wire to the light u want to work - if it is working then - you know it is something else

buy a cheap test light 5l dollars or so at wally world - and put the pointed end of the test light on the wire connector end coming out of the truck - - to the trailer - - if the test light [ grounded of course] - blinks - with the blinker on - and the ignition on at the same time - then it is in the trailer lighting / wiring -

be sure - before u do anything else - u check the bulb - better yet - go over the top and trade bulbs in the back to be sure - - if it blinks - -just get a new bulb - if not - continue testing and get back here with any updates and things u try

also - take down the vin # and call the local dealer - - ask about service or recalls for ur vehicle [s]

On a cherokee sport diesel what colour wire do i connect the white earth return to at the taillight, 2006 model this is from the trailer connection socket

Is this wire a ground wire from the trailer or is this a wire for the trailer? If you are wiring a hook up for your trailer to plug into, that should be a ground wire and can be hooked up to any good solid metal part of the car. This can ground to the body, chassis or bumper. If you are looking for a wire to hook to, then look at your tail light socket and see which wire goes to the metal base of the bulb, that is the ground wire.

Best way to wire a trailer

You can typically buy pre made trailer harnesses at your local aout parts store. If you specify the make, year and model, they will give you the harness that will simply plug into either a vacant socket, or intercept signal from one of the tial lights. Be awair that if you get erratic signal operation, you may also have to install a heavy duty signal flasher.

Hope this is of some help.
