Just tap off of the rear lights , You can do most of the wiring on one side and only have to tap the indicator off the other side.
shouldn't need a relay unless you have lots n lots of lights on the tailer.
Hope this helps.

Do you have a tow bar fitted? Sounds like a wiring problem earth short usually a badly wired in tow bar can cause it as they wire them into the light cluster using scotch locks they need soldering properly. Failing that or no tow bar fitted have you got water ingress in the lights Definately sounds like the rears

Fitting towbar electrics

Hi, I'm Peter, You do not need to access a panel to wire up the electrics for the tow bar on a 2003 Kia Sorento . I don't know if you have the tow bar yet or not but there is a bolt in model for the Sorento 4 bolts and your done it's on there too. The wiring is as simple also. Kia actually has a wiring harness that all you do is plug it into the existing plug and you have a ground wire to attach which they also have already on the car. I just got through swapping the same setup from one 2003 to another in about 20-30 minutes, I had an impact gun though for the tow bar bolts. The wiring you are looking for is located between the frame and the body of the car on the passenger side. As you lay on your back you will see it is connected to the frame with a push in connector or tie wrap I can't remember right at this moment it's 1:30 AM. Just get it loose from the frame and disconnect the plug that will continue on up towards the right rear tail light.. Take your harness ( believe me it's worth getting from the dealership) and plug it in between the other two connectors. Like I said earlier you will have a black ground wire and if you look on the car body portion you will see a bolt hole located a little past half way of the flat vertical area , that is where the ground wire goes. There may be after market harnesses just like the one the dealership has but I already had one so I know everything fits perfect and the trailer plug end will go across to the driver side of the center of the hitch where they normally are. I have to tell you it was one of the easiest setups I have ever done and I have head remarkable stories about how strong those hitches are when other vehicles run into them. The other vehicle is destroyed and the tow bar protected the KIA. If your going to do it do it right and easy. Good Luck.

No left turn/brake light for trailer

In the Uk nearlly all trailor socket wiring is done from the rear light wiring of the towing vehicle so I suggest checking the wiring back from the trailor connection socket and also socket, it could be a broken or cut wire. Also will probably find your vehicle a control unit fitted the trailor socket which could also the problem. Find the pin outs for your turn signal on the socket and connect a bulb across this connection and the common earth to check its not a fault on your tralior.

I need wiring diagram for 1995 ford ranger XLT i need to hook up trailer lights

Unfortunately this model has separate filaments for the stop and turn signals. You will need to use an adapter relay to hookup a standard trailer plug or you will need a trailer that also uses this wiring setup. The first diagram below indicates there my be a trailer adapter for the turn signals at the base of the steering column. The wire colors at the bulbs are as follows:
tail/running lights: brown
stop: light green
left turn: light green/white stripe
right turn: white/light blue stripe
back up: black/pink stripe
ground: black

Please let me know if you have questions.

The trailer tow adapter is a different circuit, so the wires are different colors.

Here is the EVTM cell for the trailer tow adapter for a 2001 F-150.

Best to do a file -save as and save them local so you can magnify them with Windows Picture and fax viewer.
Leave a comment on the post if you cannot read something, and I will get that section magnified so you can read it ( cut part of the picture and save it as a separate JPEG ).

I need to know the requirments and how to wire in my towbar volvo v50 year 2006

The very best information I have ever gotten for tow bar wiring and even trailor hitch parts and installations have been from Budget truck Rental Locations.
Seems that is a major part of their business, installing tow hitches, bars, wiring, to conform to DOT rules and regs.
Hope this helps.
Happy Motoring!!
