Trailer Lights, I have a polarity problem. The LED tail lights on my trailer only work if I reverse the plug-in, any idea on how to fix this polarity problem.


Possibly the person that borrowed your trailer changed some of the wires. Old-type bulbs don't care about polarity, but LEDs do.

How do I install brake controler on 2015 chevy colorado


most aftermarket electric controllers have 4 leads, a hot 12volt, ground, a wire that goes to the trailer brakes, and another wire tied into the brake lights. There should be instructions included with your controller. I put one on my 96 dodge ram 2500 4x4.

I hooked up a trailer to my 04 dodge 2500 (5.7 ltr) and when i plugged in the lights my truck lost all running lights and tail lights. headlights still work and so do turn signals. I checked all the...


your vehicle has a "integrated power module". its a fancy name for a smart fuse box. What likely happened is there is a problem with the trailer wiring. The power module detected the fault and shut down the running lights. The power module will need to be reset at the dealer.

Fuse 15 is a 50 amp fuse for the park lamp relay
Fuse 32 and 34 are 10 amp fuses for the right and left park lights
Fuse 33 is a 10 amp fuse for the trailer park lights.

After it is reset I would not plug in the trailer until the fault is located and repaired.

Id say your pig tail to the trailor is having high resistance or a wire is cracked, Follow the pigtail under bumper, It plugs into main harness, Disconnect and look for damage or a dry white powder. If everything else works as you say? And your positive the vehical being toweds lighting works on another vehical? than the pig tail is bad, replace at any local parts store

I had the same problem on 06 ram, the problem is one of the controll modules under the fuse panel under the hood on the drivers side. My trailer mechanic told me this was a common problem and dodge will only charge about 700 dollars to replace it. he solved my problem by installing a converter on the wires to the tail lights of the truck then running down to the trailer plug. it was most likely caused by a short in the trailer and dodge in their infinate wisdom failed to put a fuse between the trailer and control module. and by the way even though this is a manufacturing defect they will not warranty the module. hope this helps.
