2004 silverado factory wired trailer package, worked fine, recently right turn signal stopped working.12 volts always on the pin for right signal pull fuse at fuse block and voltage drops off.


it would be normal for the voltage reading to stop when the fuse is pulled as that is breaking the circuit
check the wiring and grounds in the trailer harness
there is a light control module but that would be the problem if the vehicle lights work with no trailer connection

The left tail light on my trailer doesnt work.the stop and turn signal works . is there a fuse for it? i have 2011 gmc sierra 1500


There is a tail lights fuse for the truck, but not for the trailer.
First, check that your left tail light on the truck is working, if not fix the problem (new bulb, bad contact, fuse).
Then the obvious suggestions regarding the trailer are: Check the tail light portion of the bulb to be sure it is not blown. If good (best to put in new one to be sure), then check the wiring from the front of the trailer all of the way to the non working bulb, including every connection and at any place it is secured to the trailer frame. If all is good with the trailer circuit and bulb, then check the truck's trailer connector, including any adapters. If by chance the truck is wired with a flat 4 wire harness the problem may be solved (but usually the blinkers are the problem). Modern trucks require a 5 wire harness which self adapts to the standard 4 wire trailer circuit. Check for dc power (12 volts) from the truck's female connector. One wire will be ground, others will be taillights (turn on headlights), brake lights (have someone press brake pedal), and blinkers (turn on switch and blinkers).

Lost all elec.power to trailer plug on jeep


The trailer connection is usually fed off the wiring from the brake and tail lights If those work, my guess is the wire that goes to ground is open. try following the harness back toward the tail and brake lights looking for broken or corroded connections. If you have a meter or 12v test light try connecting the one end to a good ground if using a meter it should be the black or negative lead. Turn on the running lights and one turn signal while probing the plug if you get voltage or the light to light you have an open ground. Locate and repair the connection.

When I tow with my car the left blinker doesn't work on the trailer. There is a 7 pin round plug on the car, with a flat adapter to the flat pin on the trailer. I have had the same problem with at...


Hello Carol, The 7 way is for use with a brake controller and/or a trailer that has electric brakes. The 4 way flat is a basic trailer plug connector.
Connect as follows:
Green wire- Connects to the vehicles right turn wire harness & provides brake light and right turn signal on trailer.

Yellow wire- Connects to vehicles left turn wire & powers brake light & Left turn signal on trailer

White wire- Ground

Brown Wire- Tail/ marker/ license plate lights

The Blue, Red & Purple wires on the 7 way will not be used on the adapter, those are for brakes.

I hope this information is helpful.

My trailer brakes do not work when the ball and trailer make a connection. But if I just plug in the trailer to the truck I can hear them working. I have checked everything and have had others look at...


Both the ball and the trailer hitch should be grounds so I'm guessing the trailer brakes have a hot wire touching the frame somewhere but not enough to blow a fuse. Before connecting the hitch to the ball, have someone press the trailer brakes and check between the hitch and the ball with a volt meter for 12 volts. If you do then something is wrong with the trailer brakes. I'm just guessing though.

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.

How do you install an electronic trailer brake controller in a 1995 GMC Suburban 1500?


a brake controller has 4 wires on it, Black, white, blue,red.

Black is positive battery 12 volts connect to 30 amp circuit breaker to the battery

White goes to good solid ground

red connects to white wire from the brake switch

blue wire connects to 7 way trailer connector at rear of truck. If the truck has trailer package you will find the blue wire and red wires under brake booster taped to the harness you can connect your blue brake control wire to that blue wire. At the rear of the truck the other end of the blue wire will be taped to a harness under the rear of the truck. you will have to now connect the blue wire to the blue input on your 7 way connector

I only have taillights coming out of the trailer plug


so, the trailer has no brake lights, or turn signals, just tail lights? Everything (all lights) on truck work ok? What do you have for trailer wiring hook up 4, 5, 6, or 7 way? There is no fuse, the lights all work off the tow vehicle lights, so if the tow vehicle lights all work properly, it's probably a wiring problem, such as bad grounds, loose connections, etc. Get a volt meter and check voltage at truck plug to see if power is getting that far. If truck plug in is ok, wiring problem is the trailer. Make sure all grounds are tight and rust free, that's a common problem.
