Question about Toyota Land Cruiser
My car is wired for electric service trailer brakes, and works fine, but will not work on a trailer fitted with out electric brakes, it is incompatable and blows fuses, what do i need to do to overcome this problem ?
i am in South Australia and we use 7 pin round plugs
Most likely the trailer wires dont match the truck wires. you will need to verify that the truck is wired correctly and then that the trailer is wired to match your truck. problems usually arise after someone has BORROWED a tralier and made the trailer wires match THEIR truck trailer wiring here is standardized but people wire them up any way the can, and it causes problems when that trailer is borrowed or sold.

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.
