The plug on the camper doesn't match the wiring on your truck, when youturn the lights on it is sending 12v to the brakes.

This is the way your trailer plug should be wired if your truck is wired standard.

I would like to know the color code of the wires to the rear lights to hook up trailer wires. Tailights, break lights, left and right turn signals


brake lights, white/tan stripe
tail lights, black/yellow stripe
left turn, light green
right turn, tan
ground, black

Note that your car has separate filaments for brakes and turns, so you cannot use the standard 4-prong trailer connector and will need an extra filament in your trailer lights.
Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Can't get the lights on camper to work when I turn on a signal light both tail lights on camper flash thats the only lights that work . I drive a 2004 silverado


if they camper was wired for an older/other make of truck it might be different check to see if the yellow(left side turn/brake) wire maybe connected or crossed with the green(right turn/brake) wire,also see if the plug in wiring under the rear bumper is a stock plug in or if some one tried to go cheap and use"scotch-locks" on the tail light wires and crossed something under there,the parts store sells a plug in tester for your truck's particular plug that will tell you if the truck has the issue or if it's the camper,also check the ground,hope this helps,and good luck

Well for the camper there are for wires for the lights i have green wire that is the right turn signal and hooked it up on the right side to the green wire which is the right turn signal in the car then...


well, the following is the generic (standard) wiring for trailer plugs......

tail (clearance) = brown
left hand turn = yellow
right hand turn = green
stop (brake) = red
electric brakes = blue
earth = white

now, you said that you had connected green, yellow and brown, and white. which is all well and good, but you did not mention a red wire which would be for the brake lights.

I hope this helps, get back to me with more info to assist you.

I have a '05 Ford Ranger. I bought a camper shell that has a Third Brake Light and I would like to hook it up so it works when I apply the brakes. Hooking the camper shell 3rd Brake lights to the p/u brake...


there will be four wires going to your lights you will have to test each wire to see which wire is for the brake light and tap into that wire. on all ford rangers one bulb controls everything so you can't just hook it up thru your bulb so you will have to hookit up thru your wires. it's not that difficult but you will have to have a helping hand. and test till you find the one for the brakes only.

No running lights on camper trailer


Hey Paul, it's most likely a wiring problem. There is one wire designated for just the running lights. What type of plug does the truck have? Probably 6 or 7 way (6 or 7 wire). You can check the plug-in at the truck with a multi-meter to see if there's power at that point. If there is, then the problem is somewhere from the trailer plug to the lights on the trailer. If you have a 7 way plug, the center plug is for aux. power (back up lights on what you pull, if equipped). One wire is power to the camper battery for a breakaway switch, one for left turn and stop, one for right turn and stop, a ground wire, one for running lights, and one for trailer brakes. To determine what wire does what, 1st with meter check volts of all wires w/ truck and trailer hooked up, truck running, power wire to battery for breakaway should show voltage if equipped w/ a trickle charge, brake wire will show low voltage, approx. 2 volts, apply brakes and should go up to approx. 12 volts, put on L turn signal, meter should go up and down, as power to blinker pulses on and off, do the same to determine which is the R turn signal (put foot on truck brakes will show voltage to brake lights AND brakes, continue w/ process of elimination to determine which is running lights, and exactly where power is not going.

Brake controller not communicating w/ 7 pin connector


what type controller did you install? Is this a camper or trailer? Is the controller hydraulic plumbed into master cylyder? Important to know how to adjust rheostat for sensitivity. If set at minimum the system is basically on the edge of not sending any signal to towed unit. The intructions should explain how to make this adjustment. If set too sensitive trailer brakes will lock up before the tow vehcle starts to brake. Controller should be set so trailer starts braking just befor the tow vehcle. If not the trailer will tax the tow vehicle brakes by pushing. Its set right when you feel the combination stretching out. trailer first then tow vehcle. Good luck and remember, if truck brakes first and too hard you risk a jacknife. All light voltages should be system voltage. Brake voltage is variable depending on setting on controller. Understand your breakaway brakes and how they work. breakaway breaks require an auxillary battery. Again, good luck and you know where to find me if I can be of anymore help.

Hooked my 2007 Sprinter camping trailer to the factory lights/brakes hook-up located below bumper of my 2005 Silverado 4x4 extended cab truck. Everything works fine except for the right trailer turn...


Is this a 4 way or 6 way connection system? If your truck is wrong, then all factory equipped trailer package harnesses would be wrong, tell your trailer guy...I don't think so.
Is this the first trailer you have hauled?
Let me know, and we will go from there.

2007 Tacoma Tail light problem.


Check the taillamp fuse on the truck. If it is blown, you either have a short in the wiring of the camper, or the 7 pin inverter box on the camper.
