ONE WIRE IS HOT AND ONE IS GROUND, ON THE OTHER THE HOT 12 VOLT WAS ONLY WIRE, THE MIRROR WAS GROUNDED TO THE CHASSIS OF TRUCK, SO ONE WIRE IS ATTACHED TO TRUCKS BODY SHEET-METAL AND THE OTHER TO 12 VOLTS, THE GROUND SHOULD BE BLACK, THE 12 VOLT SHOULD BE ORANGE OR RED.

I have a 2010 T & C with a towing package


go to the dealer. most likely they may have a harness that just plugs in. .If you try to wire the old fashion way chances are you will create more issues since every system is computer controlled. If you do 1 thing wrong you can fry a computer and then you will be real bummed.

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.

Hello, I have a 2000 GMC Jimmy that came with a rear hitch for towing. I need to install a brake controller and plug connector. I bought the 6-pole connector kit but I don't know what to buy other than the...


Hello Brenda, the tow package wire is tucked into the rear of your Jimmy near the hitch. The controller, unfortunately also needs to be installed in the cabin of your vehicle. I recommend that you call a few local repair shops, tell them what you have and what you need and shop for the best price. Regards, Joe

Why does my rear view mirror read OC


Open Circuit, check the wiring/connector from the mirror. If the connector is ok, you may have a bad outside temperature sensor, good luck.

MY heater fan works on 4 & 5 Only on my 2000 Silverado


remove the passenger side lower insulator panel. behind the panel you wil find the blower motor housing. next to the blower motor housing there will be a wiring connector with 6 to 8 wires going in to it. the connector will be held secure with 2 screws. remove the connector and remove the screws -- this is your resistor. reverse the process to re-install.

How do I replace the power mirror on my 2000 Chrysler LHS? I can take the mirror and mount off, but am unsure how to disconnect the wiring. Does the wire running through the door have to be removed also?...


The power mirror has a connector about 8 inches away from the mirror itself, it may be in the door, behind the door panel. you may be able to gently pull the connector up to the hole though.

I bought towing mirrors for 2008 silverado ltz but no instructions were supplied. How do I get to the wiring connections?


make your life easier. If your towing is not constant then save yourself the trouble and expense of permanently attaching large towing mirrors on your truck. Get the ones that temporarily attach to the existing mirrors and remove them when not in use. My silverado is already wide enough and a pain to park sometimes without any extra width added by side mirrors. Try stylintrucks.com for good selection.

Side View Mirror Wiring


Just try matching from the outside to the outside, middle to middle, etc. or use a continuity tester against each pair until the light up. Solder the wires, do not use wire nuts.
