On later models... Under the dash, left side, pull the black wiring cover. There are 4 (?) places for the plugs on the top. It is one of the middle slots. The plug will only fit into one slot because of the "ears" on the plug. Look in the owners manual first. Also try http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx. This should help. Mike

2004 Chevy Express 1500 keeps blowing trailer light fuse


If you're only blowing the fuse while the trailer is plugged in, the problem is in the trailer/wiring. This takes into account that the truck has a factory installed 7 way receptacle. If that's not the case, the problem can be in the incorrectly wired truck and the trailer is ok.

On the truck, looking into the 7 way receptacle should be as follows.
Top left=Tail Lights
Top right=12v steady source/charge line
Left middle=Left turn/brake
Right middle=Right turn/brake
Left bottom=ground
Right bottom=brake controller output
Center=reverse lights if your trailer is equipped.

Your trailer plug should mirror this.

This is the standard.

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.

We just hooked up our Ford 1996 econoline van to a trailer. The trailer brakes are not working. We checked all the fuses - all seem to be fine. The fuse diagram on the fuse box panel does not tell you...


First thing is your van equipped with a trailer brake controller and is it working. This is usually a small box that is installed inside the vehicle and is needed to operate the brakes. Next what type of plug do you have on the vehicle to plug the trailer into some plugs do not support wiring for trailer brakes. If you have a aftermarket trailer brake controller it will not be fused in the fuse panel so you will to locate a inline fuse used to power up the controller. Hope this helps.

What does tbc fault mean on a 2006 f350


TBC means Trailer Brake Controller fault.Check for moisture/water in the trailer plug connector at the back of your truck. Water/moisture will cause TBC error codes. Look for moisture at all connections to the plug and inside the plug.Trailer brake controller that is built into your dash. If you are hooked up to a trailer it could mean you are losing your connection or ground to the trailer. If you are not connected to a trailer it means there is a problem with your brake controller possibly a short in the wiring caising the fault code. ----- It means either A) you have a bad ground on your trailer. Or B) your cable on your trailer is too short and causing it to pull out of the plug or C) you have a short in the factory trailer harness wiring or the plug is gunked up. --------- get this possibilities checked.It will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

I have an Intergrated brake controller, i warning comes up trailer disonnected and sometimes TBC fault, no trailer hooked up , happens when i hit a bump, or hit the dashs. Please


TBC is trailer brake control. If it says there is a fault then i would say you have one of two issues. Either the controller is faulty or you have wires grounding out to the brake control wire going to the rear of the truck for your plug.
