Any extra outlets would only be used depending on how your`` trailer is optioned.do you need a brake controller?do you have back-up light?do you need to charge a second battery?these would be the only reason to need the extra plugs.

1997 k1500. I started it today, negative temps, and I don't have 1st, or overdrive.


unplug the trailer first to see if it is something in it''s wiring.
not going into OD could just be that the load is too much to handle in OD.
speedo and tach I would start by checking fuses.
sounds like the problems are all related.

I would like to know the color code of the wires to the rear lights to hook up trailer wires. Tailights, break lights, left and right turn signals


brake lights, white/tan stripe
tail lights, black/yellow stripe
left turn, light green
right turn, tan
ground, black

Note that your car has separate filaments for brakes and turns, so you cannot use the standard 4-prong trailer connector and will need an extra filament in your trailer lights.
Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Took my 1995 suburban to get the trailer breaks rewired and instead of installing a new harness they spliced the wires. when i hooked up my trailer i noticed that my break lights didnt become brighter when...


Check to insure a good ground on your rig, harness and trailer. Too many times the ball is used for ground, it doesn't work. Then I'd take it to someone else.

Wiring colour for connecting trailer lights


Your best bet is to go to an auto parts store or dealer and see if they have an adapter for trailer lights. Most of the newer vehicles have adapters the just plug into the existing wiring harness and you don't need to worry about splicing things. Also on some vehicles hooking up directly to the wiring harness doesn't work too well because of the circuit not being able to support the extra voltage drop. The adapter usually have that taken care of.

I need to know how to wire my Blazer to be able to hook up a trailer to it. Any suggestions?


Check to see if there is an extra wiring plug, somewhere hanging up
under the rear bumper. If there is, you will not have a hard time hooking
up a trailer.

2006 Ford F250 Super Duty no running light for trailer and keep blowing a fuse


have seen this a few times on fords. I'm assuming it only blows when you use the trailer. then the only cause can be a shorted wire somewhere between the trailer connector to the lights at the rear of the trailer or maybe the light assembly is bad. If the problem happens when you have no trailer hooked up then inspect the trunk harness. and wiring under the bumpers. Something 12v got pinched.

I'm trying to hook up a trailer hitch and need to hook up tail lights to trailer


you may or may not have a trailering wire harness. look for an extra set of wires underneath the middle of the rear bumper (have a peek around the spare, too). this should have a flat plug on it that looks like it belongs on a videogame controller plug. some models also have a covered socket you should look for. if there doesn't appear to be one, you may have to have a professional or a knowledgeable friend put one in.

I don't no how to hook up a trailer wire harness to my 1984 dodge ram van .


Most vehicles of this vintage have a connector tucked under the rear bumper of the truck, if you purchase the premade harness for your make and model Van, you will have to just plug it in and strap it down. These ar readily available on relitivly inexpensive at most major auto parts outlets.

I hope this is of some help.

I first noticed that my power outlets did not work.


Does it blow if you plug in something different. The thing you plugged in might be shorted.
