Question about 2004 Pontiac Montana

1 Answer

We purchased minivan a few weeks ago, I tried to wire a trailer harness and blew out a few fuses for the lights. I finally took it to an RV place and they fixed trailer wires and I replaced fuses. Since then, the traction control system is turned off and the "Service Traction System" light comes on when I start the car and stays on for about 15 minutes

You need to check the traction control module located in the engine compartment, its malfunction, high voltage may have damage same. again check all relays and fuse.

What is the function of the 8 wires for the factory rv plug?


The 8 wire plug on newer models is for trailer hauling. The wires give power to the following; break lights, marker lights, backup lights (as equipped) parking lights, electric breaks (larger trailers will have these) one wire is a ground, and, through a positive wire, will trickle charge your trailers house batteries also. There is an industry standard to wiring one of these plugs, so you should be able to purchase any "newer" style trailer (tent, tow behind or 5th wheel, or camper) and the wiring harness will be wired accordingly. Any RV shop or auto shop should be able to provide a schematic for the wiring if you require one.

When i plug a trailer up to my 1994 toyota pickup, the trailer lights dont work. the lights over the license plate dont work. could there be a fuse that is blown, does the plate lights need to work for the...


You shouldn't need the license plate lights to work to make your trailer lights work. Chances are that there is an issue with the wiring it's self. On my father 94 pick up the wiring is spliced directly in the taillight wiring. If your taillights work there shouldn't be an issue with the trailer lights. Start by checking or remounting the ground wire attached to the wiring harness. If that isn't the issue test the input of the harness followed by the output. If there is input but no output you need to replace the harness. Try the CURT 55379 you can purchase this by visiting one of their retailers by clicking here.

Can't shift out of park, no brake lights/turn signals


Had same problem. Our trailer electric wiring harness had a bare wire that shorted when it touched the meatl trailer hitch. This blew a fuse. The fuse that it blew also control the transmission lock out thus not allowing you to shift out of park. I believe it is a 15 amp fuse. Of all the spare fuses in the van there is no 15 amp available. I took the fuse for the heated mirrors and swapped it with the blown fuse. Problem fixed but no heat for the mirrors. Better that than no tranny.

My harness for my trailer lights quit working.


If the lights are working on your vehicle, then no. With a test light, check to see if you're getting power on the plug coming from the vehicle. You should if all the lights are working on your truck. I'd check the ground wire to the plug on the trailer harness... probably loose or disconnected, especially if everything quit all of a sudden.

Trailer fuse blows when hooked up


Is your truck wired for a 7 pin flat plug? if so are you using an adapter? The adapters are made differently. One has the center pin as brakes and the other uses the center as Aux. power. Any chance of an animal getting to the wires? They are kown to chew on the wiring. Also try http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx. They have a great website with lots of info.
