Right side of trailer running lights does not work

Had a problem with a right, amber side marker on my trailer. The side marker worked by grounding to the trailer. I had to replace the bulb due to it burning and creating an electrical problem. I worked with it prior to going out, and they all worked. Later all the lights (running) were out. Brakes, and both turn signals worked. After jiggling the wires on the side marker, all lights came on again, then went off. Finally, I bought a new side marker. The new side marker, which has 2 wires (brown and white) does not ground to the trailer, to work. I can also switch either way and the side marker still works. Now, running lights on the left side work, both turn and stop lights work but the right side running lights does not work. It can't be a fuse because the left side running lights work. Could it be a bulb on the right rear that connects all my lower middle lights not to work?

Usually one of the holes in the marker light where screw goes in, has metal contact where screw meets light, but if not, and they are not push in wire connection type from behind, then just run your white wire up through hole in housing, and bare the end & tighten it up under screw holding light to body. White should be ground, brown should be power.

Why would only one out of 4 marker lights work?


you are right all marker lights come off of one fuse, inside instrument panel, number 29, a 10 amp fuse my manual does not give a lamp number, it has a chart, head lamps (high) lamp 9005 60 w type a, headlamp (low) 9006 51 w type b, front marker lamps 5w type d, for the rear it says to use a lamp 7443 21.5 w type d, I do not use these, I have special lights on mine, hope that it helps

Trailer lights have two wire out of each fixture left turn goes on left side Right hand turn goes on the other side Tail lights connect how and brakes connect how?


One wire is for the brake/directional filament and the other wire is for the tail light. The fixture should be grounded when it is attached to the bracket. To test which is which (the brown wire is USUALLY the ail light) make sure the fixture is grounded and touch a hot wire to each of the wires coming from the fixture. Watch to see which wire lights up the brighter filament and this is the brake/directional light. The dimmer filament if the tail light. Brakes lights and directional lights are both the same filament. Wen the brakes are applied, both lights are activated. When a direction light is turned on, it simply flashes the brake light filament.

We need to know the color code on the wires to hook up tail lights to a trailer.


4 way flat molded connectors allow basic hookup for three lighting functions; right turn signal / stop light (green), left turn signal / stop light (yellow), taillight / license / side marker (brown) and a ground (white).brownwire will run both right and left side markers

2001 Dodge Ram 2500, no running lights on trailer


The truck is protecting itself from the load impose by the trailer.. Chk the plug on the truck for wire gauge size. Turn any electrical loads off on the trailer, any and all. If fuse still blows then the fuse is either underated or the trailer has a dead short. In fact turn trail main power panel of. All lights work you say. So ck the inverter for defect byturning off the inverter on one of the trailers.

2005 Chevy Tahoe Trailer Running Lights Out


Depending on what type of trailer you have, a blown lightbulb on one marker could kill them all (like the old Christmas light strings). Look at those, and make sure your ground is good.
