My truck has a 4 wire plug plugging into a 4 plug with 5 wires to trailer. how do you wire trailer wires to adapt to plug that plugs into the plug with 4 wires


If the trailer has electric brakes that are powered by a separate battery, you use a 4-pole to 5-pole adapter and connect the extra wire to the truck backup light circuit.

I have a standard 4 flat trailer plug on my truck but my trailer plug is also a 4 flat plug but has two brown wires going to one prong. how do i hook them together to make all my lights on trailer work


The 4-wire flat plugs usually have a white (ground), green (right brake/turn) yellow (left brake/turn) and brown (taillights - left and right). If your brake and turn lights work but the taillights don't, check the plugs (trailer and truck sides) for corrosion, and chek both the trailer and truck wiring harnesses for chafed insulation and bare conductors on the brown wires. Likewiae if the taillights work and the brake/turn lights don't, perform the same checks on those wires. And last but not least, be sure that the white wires (truck and trailer) are grounded well to the truck body and trailer frame.

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.

Have issues with trailer lights. Both turn signals on trailer flash when I use left or right turn signal. Have 7 pin factory plug. Lights on trailer work fine, hooked up to 97 Silverado. Act funny on 2000...


Standard wiring colors are as follows:

4-Way

5-Way

6-Way

7-Way

Green

Yellow

Brown

White

Red

Blue

Purple

Right Turn & Brake

Left Turn & Brake

Tail Lights

Ground

Backup Lights

Electric Brakes

Auxiliary Power
Green- Right Turn and Brake
Yellow- Left Turn and Brake
Brown- Tail Lights
White- Ground
Red- Reverse (Back Up) Lights
Blue- Electric Brakes
Purple- Auxiliary Power

It sounds like your green and yello wires are shorted together somewhere along the length of the harness. I would check the wires on the trailer first. Easier yet, if you have another trailer to connec or access to another to use for testing, connect to it and see if the problem repeats; if it does the trouble is in the vehicle's wiring.

I'm trying to hook up a 4 pin plug to a 6 pin receptacle? When I apply hazard the license plate light flashes?


I'm guessing that you're talking about a trailer wire connection.
The easiest wayis to use an adaptor like this:

Maybe at trailer supplier or auto parts store?

I am connecting a trailer towing harness to my Nissan 2004 Titan (2wd), to tow my boat and need to know what the color codes to the parking, stop, and reverse wires are.


if you go to the parts store they make them ready to plug in you will have to just unplug the tail lights and plug the wire harness inplace of it then itll plug back into the original spot.

How do I wire a 4 pin flat plug to my 1996 Mazda B2300 for trailer lights? 4 pin connectors came with kit, but don't know how to wire to my truck lights. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks Robert


Rob I can't remember if your Mazda has separate brake and signal lights.
I think that model year did. If so you will need a module to make it work on a 4 pin trailer connector. These will be readily available at your local auto supplier at a reasonable price (Around $20). It will also have a wiring diagram in the package.
If the signal and the brake light are on the same bulb it will be easier.You may be able to buy a package at your auto supplier that you simply pull a plug apart at the rear of your truck and insert the complete harness.
