Both the female and the male part of your plug in are marked. l/t left turn. r/t right turn. s stop. m marker lights. g ground wire. They are supposed to be wired in a universal manner so they will hook to any trailer, and any truck. Is this what you're asking?

When I hook up my truck to my trailer turn on my right turn signal my four way flashers come on why is this happening?


Hello Dewey, I can think of three reasons that could cause your problem. The truck pigtail is improperly wired, the trailer pigtail is improperly wired, or the trailer wires are contacting each other that they shouldn't.

Check the plug wiring again on the truck. You have a wire crossed , when you hit the lights and it only blows with the trailer, then there is a crossed wire on the truck. What seems to be happening is your sending power to the ground for the trailer. You can check the trailers ground with an ohm meter, then make sure your truck ground matches that pin. You may know this , but green rght turn, yellow is left turn, brown is parking lights, black is brake lights, and white is ground.

brown=running light
yellow=lt turn
green=rt turn

I hooked up my trailer lights everything works but my taillight


If you have access to a digital multimeter or test light, check if there is power going to the plug, if there is then maybe the trailer plug and the truck plug dont match up

Trying to hook up trailer lights


taillights on what? Everything - needs to be grounded is the FIRST thing to remember. Try etrailers.com for parts or tech assistance or Google "Hoppy" trailer light kits.
Good luck

Then the problem is either with your trailer plug in, or the plug in on the truck. Use a test light to figure out which it is.

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.
