On the Titan that did not come with the factory hitch, there is a 7-pin round connector, taped up under the drivers side of the rear bumper. That is the trailer plug harness. What I recommend is buying a 7-pin socket (you can get them at Wal-Mart, U-Haul, most auto parts stores), the ones made for GM and Ford also fit the Nissan. Then buy a 7-pin to 4-pin/5-pin flat adapter, then you can hook up to any trailer. This is the right way to do it.

Now, if you are really short on cash and are pretty sure you won't ever need to plug into anything but your boat, here are the wire colors going into that harness. Use wire taps to connect your flat plug.
left turn = green/black
right turn = yellow/black
backup lights = yellow/red
tail lights = red
ground = black

You will also need to make sure you have the tow relays, in the fuse box under the hood, behind the battery.

If you go to the parts store they make them ready to plug in you will have to just unplug the tail lights and plug the wire harness inplace of it then itll plug back into the original spot.

I need to hard wire a hopkins trailer brake controller on a 2004 nissan titan


I don\'t think it has wiring provided in the factory for the tow package either. Looking at the schematics, they appear to be different with no provision for connections. The aftermarket have a wide variety of tow packages available which are simple enough to install if you ability.

Threr is one which you have to drill a large hole in the rear bumper to fit the receiving end of the connector. This is designed so that a wide selection of adaptors can be plugged into it. The adaptors are designed to fit the fixture in the bumper and the other end is shaped to plug into what ever connector you are towing. You will find this knid of fixture on nearly any factory package.. (NO WIRES DANGLING UNDER THE VEHICLE.) additionally, when not in use, there is a spring loaded cover which closes over the fixture to keep contaminants from entering Although I am a Nissan Master techniton, I chose a long wheel base 1 ton long wheel base cab and chassis Toyota with a 3.0 V-6 which I opened the back of the cab and installed a sleeper. Then built a flatbed with removable sides. I use this to pull my Nissan 300Z race Car. I have one of these fixtures on my truck because I don\'t always use the same trailer and the connectors to the trailer for the lights and electric brakes are different. The kits come with a controler for the electric brakes which you can mount where ever you wish and the controller has adjustments to control sensitivity of the trailer brakes so you can adjust the trailer to stop with the truck about the same time instead of wearing out your brakes from the extra load. With my Toyota loades with an extra engine, transmission and diff. Air compressor. Generator. Tool box, pop up tent, oils and other fluids and other misc Items. Between the trailer, the truck and it\'s load it grosses out at 11,800 lbs.When we go to Texas world speed way, we take 45 south where where there are very few cops. We cruise at 80-85 mph in the truck without a problem If the trailer brakes don\'t work, it would take me a significant time to stop because my truck is rated for 9,500 lbs.I run the living piss out of it and it has given me no problems at all/Hmm How did I get on the subject of my Toyota flatbed? OH, it\'s because I use the trailer brake setup I described which has been flawless. There are places that specialize in selling truck accesories only. From camper top and wheels to a variety of tow packages.Check them out. Good luck..

Yes you need the tow relays. U-Haul sells the set of three for around $25. Dealers sell them for a lot more. Do a web search for 'Titan tow relays' for more information.

Towing capacity of a 1.8L Nissan Primera Station Wagon


1500Kg is more likely to be the maximum towing weight.

You should, in theory, be able to launch and recover a boat/trailer of this combined weight ok, but in practise you need to consider how slippery the ramp is and if your front wheel drive vehicle will be able to cope with it.

Use a long strop attached to the trailer and looped around the towing hitch, to launch and recover the boat, so your car stays well away from the water.

You could have some problems getting enough grip with your front wheel drive, when recovering a boat.

I have had to recover my boat from a rocky beach when I couldn't get it back to the launch ramp because of bad weather. I was very thankful that I had a four wheel drive car for that.

What ever you do, ALWAYS plan carefully exactly how you are going to do the launch or recovery and make sure you stop and think about it before doing it.

No running lights on boat trailer towed by 2008 ford f150


You can purcahse a tester which will connect into the F-150's wiring harnes. If the led lights up, the problem is witht he trailer's wiring harness. this tester will indicate the proper operation of the brake light and turn signals.
