Question about 2000 Chevrolet Tracker

1 Answer

Im trying to hook a 4way flat plug tom my 2000 tracker, but the lights have separate wires for the running lights and brakes. theres only a brown wire on the plug that says ''tail'' . i hooked the proper turn sig. wires,so since the tracker has 2 separate wires for brake and running, how do i wire to get all to come on at the right time??????????

    if the wires can be both hooked to the TAIL, thus creating a short , then why isnt there just one wire on the tracker ???

Rear harness was bad they replaced with trailer harness and trying to fig out what yellow brown light green an dark green are on frame of truck it hooked in to so i can fix i un hooked not knowing what had...


Your description, I take it, is a problem with the wiring harness going from the driver's compartment to the rear lights. If that is the case, the normal color code for GM is brown for tail lights, dark green for the right stop & turn, yellow for the left stop & turn and light green for the backup lights. Any black wires should be grounded. The white wire in the trailer harness is for a ground when used on a trailer. It sounds like you have the green and yellow T&S wires shorted together somewhere! Some of the later vehicles use separate stop and turn bulbs... these would have a separate wire for the stop lights only, but I don't think your truck is new enough for that. Good luck!

I have a standard 4 flat trailer plug on my truck but my trailer plug is also a 4 flat plug but has two brown wires going to one prong. how do i hook them together to make all my lights on trailer work


The 4-wire flat plugs usually have a white (ground), green (right brake/turn) yellow (left brake/turn) and brown (taillights - left and right). If your brake and turn lights work but the taillights don't, check the plugs (trailer and truck sides) for corrosion, and chek both the trailer and truck wiring harnesses for chafed insulation and bare conductors on the brown wires. Likewiae if the taillights work and the brake/turn lights don't, perform the same checks on those wires. And last but not least, be sure that the white wires (truck and trailer) are grounded well to the truck body and trailer frame.

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.

To install a trailer plug on a 2002 ford taurus wagon do i need a specail harness or will a 4way flat wiring kit work


Hi, your stop and turn signals share the same filaments, so you need 4 conductors:
right turn/stop=orange/light blue
left turn/stop=light green/orange
tail/park/marker=brown
ground=black

Thanks for using FixYa.

Which colour wire to use to hook up a trailer for a Kia Carnival 2000,trailer leads are yellow, green,black,brown,red,white and blue(no connection). just want to know which lead goes to which in the Kia?...


Hi there,

Here is a cheat sheet I compiled that you will find very helpful:


Plug Types/Application
7 Way - RV Trailers, Horse and Utility Trailers
6 Way - Horse, Stock and Utility
4 Way - Utility Trailers

Columns are Color, Function, Mark on the plug.

Seven wire Trailer plugs
:

Horse, stock or utility trailers:
White = Ground - 1
Blue = Electric Brakes - 2
Brown = Tail and clearance lights - 3
Black = Battery, aux power - 4
Yellow = Left turn/Brake - 5
Green = Right turn Brake - 6
Orange or Purple (not both) = Auxilliary or Reverse - 7

Recreational Vehicle:
White = Ground - 1
Blue = Electric Brakes - 2
Green = Tail and clearance lights - 3
Black = Battery, aux power - 4
Red = Left turn/Brake - 5
Brown = Right turn Brake - 6
Yellow = Auxilliary or Reverse - 7


Six wire trailer plugs:

Horse, stock or utility trailers:
White = Ground - GD
Yellow = Left turn/Brake -LT
Green = Right turn Brake -RT
Brown = Tail and clearance lights - TM
Red or Black (not both) = Battery, aux power - A
Blue = Electric Brakes - S

Recreational Vehicle: (color, use, plug mark)
White = Ground - GD
Yellow = Not used -
Brown = Right turn Brake - RT
Green = Tail and clearance lights -TM
Black = Battery, aux power - A
Red = Left turn/Brake - LT
Blue = Electric Brakes - S


Four wire plugs:
White = Ground
Yellow = Left turn/Brake
Green = Right turn Brake
Brown = Tail and clearance lights


Ground should be 10ga.
Others 14 ga

Best regards
Mike

Parking lights on Nissan Frontier on - trailer parking not. 4 pin connector to factory connector (after market sealed wiring) - brake and turn signals work - no power to "brown" wire at factory connector...


First check the fuses. There may be one for trailer running lights. Check also power at the harness. If the brake lights and turn signals are seperate, there has to be a converter from 5 to 4 wire. For the power to feed back to the brake lights it sounds like the vehicle wiring is direct and not using a converter... or one of the bulbs on the trailer is contacting both contacts. Try http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx and maybe get a simple 4 pin tester that plugs into the 4 pin connecter. Hope this helps.

When i hook up a trailer the running lights wont work but the turn and brake lights work,sometimes the brake lights will stay on after i apply the brakes and i have to tap the brake pedal to make them go...


The things you need to check are the wires from the truck and the wireing to the trailer. If you have a 4 pin flat plug the wires are colored white,brown green and yellow.White is ground,brown is the tail light,green is right turn and stop,yellow is left turn and stop.The brake light switch on the brake peddle needs to be adjusted or replaced to cure your other problem.

Tow plug


I take it the blinkers and brake lights work ok when not hooked up to the trailer? If yes, then the wiring to the tow hitch is not hooked up correctly. How many wires to trailer pig tail connection? U can have up to 7 depending on what you tow. Check to make sure these wires are hooked up from the truck to tow plug correctly: 7 wired---
brown-Rt turn and brake light, yellow-backup, white-ground, blue-electric brake, green-tail running lights, black-battery charger, red-left turn signal and brake light. Let me know if u have something other than 7 wire, I'll get the wiring color and source info for u.
