I am trying to find out the towing capacity of a 2009 turbo diesel Nissan patrol. I have been told that being an auto reduces this.


best place to ask are towbar fitting shops
they have to certify that the modification and stamp the towing capacity
call any nissan service center and they will know
read it in your user manual
it has nothing to do with the transmission but a lot to do with whether the towed vehicle has electric brakes , over ride brakes or no brakes

How to wire a jeep wrangler for towing behind a motorhome using a 7 way rv connector . the jeep has three wires, brown, green and yellow. green and yellow are turn signals, I am having problems with the...


I tow my 2005 Jeep Wrangler behind my motor home. I installed a Jeep trailer towing wiring kit to the rear lights. the bought a long trailer wiring kit and ran it from the front of the Jeep to the Jeep tralier wire plug. Pluged it in and pluged the other end into the motor home trailer light recptacle. I used only four wires plus ground. There is probably a way you could tap into the wiring harnes under the hood but not having a wiring diagram this is the best I could come up with and all lights do work. You can buy a test plug with led lights that plugs in both male and female, real handy for checking connections.

I want to tow the jeep and need to know thecorrect


Review this information and links:
- Trailer 4 Way System Diagram
- Accesories and Instructions

d456d39.jpg

Instructions
1.) Determine a suitable location for mounting the circuit protected converter in an out of the way spot near the left tail lights in the trunk or on the frame rail, if mounted under the towing vehicle.
2.) Ground the white ground wire by placing the ring terminal under an existing screw attached to a clean metal surface or by drilling another 3/32" hole and using one of the self tapping screws provided.
3.) Disconnect the tow vehicle's negative (-) battery cable.
4.) Cut the in-line fuse holder loop wiring.
5.) Using a ring terminal (3/8 inch for top terminal or 1/2 inch for side terminal), attach an in-line fuse holder (with fuse removed) to the positive (+) terminal of the battery.
6.) Route black 12 gauge wire from the fuse holder to the converter passing under or through the vehicle.
Note: When passing the wire through sheet metal always go through an existing grommet, add a grommet or use silicone rubber to insulate the wire from the hole.
7.) Attach 12 gauge wire to the fuse holder with the yellow **** connector.
8.) Reconnect the tow vehicle (-) negative battery cable. Note: See tow vehicle owners manual for any special battery reconnection and instructions.
9.) Determine if the towing vehicle has a 2 wire or 3 wire system.

2 Wire System
  • Has same bulb for stop and turn signals.
  • Some vehicles have a separate bulb for stoplights but also have a combination bulb for turn and stop. These cars should be wired as 2 wire systems, using the wires going to the common bulbs.
  • Note: Attach the crimp on spade terminal provided to the red stop wire and ground it along with the white wire.

3 Wire System
  • Has amber turn signals, separate.
  • Has separate bulbs for stop and turn signals (both red).
  • Note: Attach red wire to tow vehicles brake light circuit.
10.) Using a circuit tester or volt ohm meter (VOM), determine which wire attached to the left taillight assembly is the left turn wire. Attach the units yellow left turn wire to this wire using one of the blue wire taps provided. Determine which wire is the taillight circuit and attach the module's brown tail / license wire to it with a wire tap. Determine which wire is the stop circuit and attach the module's red stop wire to it with a wire tap (for 3 wire systems only, see step 9).
11.) Route the units green right turn wire to the right side of the vehicle. Determine which wire is the right turn circuit and attach the green wire to it with a wire tap.
12.) Install the fuse into fuse holder and test the installation with a circuit light or trailer.
13.) Secure all loose wiring with cable ties.

Testing Procedure
With the ground wire connected and all of the other circuits attached, attach the ground lead of a circuit tester to the exposed ground terminal of the 4-flat end. Activate the tow vehicle left turn, right turn, tail and stop lights one at a time. Probe the three receptacles of the 4-flat end to confirm proper functions. If testing with a trailer, make the proper connections and do the same test as the circuit tester using the trailer lights. If a function on the trailer lights does not work properly, disconnect the trailer lights, turn functions on vehicle off and recheck function with the unit with a circuit tester. Then check the trailer wiring for potential circuit problems.

I hope help you with this (remember rated this help).

Good luck.

2009 chevy expres trailer wiring harness


Ask dealer if it has a towing package on it. If it does, you usually just pop fuse in under hood for electric brakes, and harness to adapt into is usually near or at rear bumper. Even if it doesn't have brake wire, you should still be able to install adapter at rear,for lights etc. which is available from dealer or auto supply places, then you may have to run electric brakes separate.

Does 2009 chevy.express have connection for electric brake?


Yes you will have to hook up a adapter. The only reason that you would not have to do this is if your vehicle came with the complete tow package, meaning shocks and tighter springs and everything else. But most of these models require a adapter to run electric brakes

Tow plug


I take it the blinkers and brake lights work ok when not hooked up to the trailer? If yes, then the wiring to the tow hitch is not hooked up correctly. How many wires to trailer pig tail connection? U can have up to 7 depending on what you tow. Check to make sure these wires are hooked up from the truck to tow plug correctly: 7 wired---
brown-Rt turn and brake light, yellow-backup, white-ground, blue-electric brake, green-tail running lights, black-battery charger, red-left turn signal and brake light. Let me know if u have something other than 7 wire, I'll get the wiring color and source info for u.
