    They sell a wiring kit that plugs right into your factory wiring. It only takes a few minutes and you do not have to cut and splice up your wiring at all. The kit has a male and a female end that plugs into the harness at the rear of your truck and your done.

Sammy tatz,

There usually is not a diagram for this type of wiring, as it's wired directly into the current wires. You simply need to follow the wires on the truck (if doing the plug here) and run the wiring to these as needed per light.

If you are wiring the trailor - the new wiring harness should be color coded as well as labeled (if new) for each light. Trace the wires (if attached still) and attach each wire as necessary to it's appropriate light.

I have never personally heard of wiring diagrams for this, at least not for aftermarket wiring. Any other diagrams for wiring can be found in a service manual for your truck.

Please let me know if you need further assistance with this matter.

I just bought a horse trailer and when I hook it up to my 2006 Silverado, the lights don't work. My trailer hitch and wiring system are new, and the previous trailer owner tested the lighting of


Some people wire trailer plugs differently. If the plug is not wired differently than yours, make sure the tow ball is clean. No rust. That's where the trailer gets its ground from. Usually they will work if thats the case, but not right. I can't remember what the wire colors are right now. Go to etrailer and look up the diagram.

Wiring 7 pin trailer plug for 1998 C1500 pickup truck Z71


Here is some information that I find useful when wiring trailer connectors, and the brake controller should be wired into the vehicles wiring according to the instructions that came with the brake controller and that identifies each wire from the brake controller.

Be sure that you solder all connections well for the best operation, and you should use 10 or 12 ga. wire for the Pos. (+) connection, and the ground or Neg. (-) connection, and you should run both wires all the way out to the battery, and about one foot from the battery on the Pos. (+) wire to the battery, make sure that you use a 20 or 30 amp Circuit Breaker and Do Not Use A Fuse.

The rest of these diagrams should help you to get your trailer properly wired up.

2002 silverado 1500 wiring diagram where can i get a copy? i need to wire it for a trailer.


Look in your glove box and see if you have the PRO code U89: wiring harness, car trailer
It's common to have the trailer harness already installed in your Silverado without you know and the dealer can pull it out for you from where it's tucked up in the frame passenger side by the spare tire for the simple cost or $65.00.

R.h trailer plug has no out put? checked all fuses, all the signals on the truck are fine? just the trailer plug


Take the plug apart (small set screw on the side) and make sure one of the wires hasn't popped out. Take out the screw and slide off the cover to see.
You will need a mini screwdriver to re-tighten the brass terminal if its the case.
Have you tested this with a test lite?
Good luck.....

Trailer harness - Red wire has no power


Hi: under the hood in the power distribution box there is a 40 Amp fuse that has to be installed to power up the trailer package. When standing looking from the front left fender it should be at the front right corner, refer to the power distribution diagram on the cover. As well under the box by the spare tire is a plug in type module mounted on the frame. There should be 2 wire harnesses located there, make sure the correct plug in is connected. Hope this helps... please rate suggestion .... ty
