Check your trailer ABS fuse on the truck. It has a separate ABS fuse for the trailer.

I recommend that you tighten the ground wire screw for starters. since the vehicle is ten years old corrosion may be the culprit.

SOURCE: i cant figure out how to wire in a 4prong trailer

go to your nearest auto parts store and ask them for a connector that plugs in the factory harness. that adapts a 5 wire toyota system to a 4 wire trailer system. thats the easyest way but I can tell you how to wire it up but it's kinda complicated.

SOURCE: electrical system not sending voltage to trailer light pigtail.

Check the owners manual. There are usually different fuses for the trailer, brown-running, yellow-left turn/brake, green-right turn/brake. White is ground. Also try http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx. They have a great website with lots of info.

4 pin connector on my 09 caravan shows no power to any of the 3 light pins. This worked last time I used the trailer 6 months ago but now...........nada.


I also had the same problem with my 2008 grand caravan. It turned out to be a bad ground wire. A real difficult thing to find. You just might want to replace all of the wires or better still replace the entire harness it will save you a lot of trouble

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.

The red and blue wire can be used for brake control or auxiliary. Use on a small motorcycle trailer, snowmobile trailer or utility trailer. Can also be used as custom wiring on trailers with 3 light/wire systems. See "Tow Vehicle Taillight Wiring" below.

What are the color codes of the wires on the truck to hook up a 6pin connector for a camper?


Check and read Trailer Wiring Connectors Various connectors are available from four to seven pins that allow for the transfer of power for the lighting as well as auxiliary functions such as an electric trailer brake controller, backup lights, or a 12V power supply for a winch or interior trailer lights. Choose a connector that has the required number of pins for the functions required for your trailer. If the connector is under the vehicle, you will want to use a mounting bracket to attach it to the vehicle. This will help prevent damage that may occur if the connector is left dangling.

Batt wont charge on my trailer from my 2009 f-150


Here's a wiring diagram

If you look at the illustration, it shows the center is an auxiliary power source. If there's nothing hooked on the tow vehicle's plug, you may need to run a wire to the switched side of the starter solenoid. Make sure you fuse it with an inline fuse. Make sure your wire in sufficient gauge and your fuse is ample to protect all your circuitry. you may even want to put a 20a circuit breaker inline and then run from cable that at least matches or is a gauge size higher than the trailer's aux power cabling size..

I do not have power on the aux. terminal in the trailer plug on a 2008 dodge ram. Any ideas?


You have got 7 pin trailer connector that was included in the optional trailer tow package. This trailer tow package also includes an electric trailer brake wiring provision that terminates at a connector located on top of the large body harness connection under the instrument panel to the left of the break pedal, as well as an electric trailer brake pigtail harness and an instruction card that are stored in the glove box when the vehicle is shipped from the factory. You will need to add an electric brake controller of your choice that will plug-in to the harness and that will also give you power on your auxiliary circuit.
