Lost all elec.power to trailer plug on jeep


The trailer connection is usually fed off the wiring from the brake and tail lights If those work, my guess is the wire that goes to ground is open. try following the harness back toward the tail and brake lights looking for broken or corroded connections. If you have a meter or 12v test light try connecting the one end to a good ground if using a meter it should be the black or negative lead. Turn on the running lights and one turn signal while probing the plug if you get voltage or the light to light you have an open ground. Locate and repair the connection.

Can't get trailer lights to work on 2001 Pajero


Forget the fuses to begin with - you need to check each wire with a multimeter with the lights and ignition turned on to see whats happening at the plug end.

No multimeter? then get a 12v test lamp - (check first its working when connected to the battery it works). Now start with say the Tail lights on - connect the single wire from the test lamp to earth (a clean solid metal connection - like towbar) and then press the probe end against each wire in turn until you find the probe light turns or not. If it turns on then mark that wire as Tail - now do the same with the Stop light, then each Right/Left Indicator and then with the Brake light - either have someone press on the foot brake or else jam a suitable sized length of wood between the bottom of the steering wheel and the footbrake to hold it right down. You may also have a Reverse light as well.

You must have ignition ON to check, Stop, Reverse and Turn Indicator lights.
Hopefully this will locate each 'working' wire for you. Then you have to connect these to your trailer plug in the correct position - Google on your area if need be to see what pins are connected to what wires else when you plug the trailer in to the plug it still won't work.
Check out this website for pins and colours - make sure its applicable to your country - http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx as it may differ from country and vehicle..

If you find any wire that does not light up when probed - then check the fuse for that wire's use - ie. Tail etc. If that fuse is ok then check back from the plug to the fuse box as you may have a broken wire or disconnected plug. You will always have an Earth wire - this will not light up when probed - its colour is normally white.

Trailer light hook-up


If this DeVille is trailer-ready, there is a trailer harness fuse box with 10A fuses for tail lights (PPL wire), left turn/stop/tail lights (YEL wire), and right turn/stop/tail lights (DK GRN wire

2004 Chrys Concorde, new utility trailer, tail light converter. Problem: There is output from conv box in yellow wire, when turn signal is on, but when it is connected to the trailer harness, no output...


Your vehicle CANNOT be wired for a trailer without using the converter box. The only vehicles that do not require a converter box are the vehicles that use the stop lamp bulb as a turn signal. Your vehicle is equipped with SEPARATE stop lamp and turn signal bulbs.

To make the converter box work correctly, it must be wired according to the instructions to BOTH the stop lamps AND the turn lamps. The tail (or PARK) lamps DO NOT go through the converter box.
Your trailer uses the SAME bulb for stop and turn - THIS is the reason you need a converter.

The wire color for both your LEFT TURN and your RIGHT TURN are LIGHT GREEN/TAN. Although the wire colors are the same at the bulb sockets, these are SEPARATE circuits and must be wired to the correct wire at the converter box. (LEFT and RIGHT) The converter box will have an INPUT connection for EACH of these.

The wire color for your STOP lamps is WHITE/TAN. The converter box should only have one INPUT wire that connects to this. It doesn't matter which side of the vehicle you connect this wire to. All of the stop lamps are on the same circuit.

The converter will then have only one wire for LEFT turn and stop (usually YELLOW) this is the wire that needs to go to your trailer connector for left turn and stop.
The RIGHT turn and stop will most likely be GREEN coming out of the converter.

2001 2500hd silverado no stop lights at trailer connection (7 pin) turn signals work fine and no problems with truck itself (fuses are ok and the brake pedal switch is operating ok


How have you tested this? If you are just looking for the stop or brake light, you need to test by pressing the break and probing the same pin as the turn signals as the vehicle does not have separate brake and turn signals. However, If the problem is that you have no signal for the electric brakes on your trailer. You must have a brake controller installed. If there is one installed probe the blue wire coming out the back end of it and press the brake to be sure there is brake output. It is possible for a controller to go bad, and not output anymore.

Trailer brakes


Take a 12 volt test light... the kind that has a spring loaded clip to hold the probe into the wire, and insert it into the wire just before the trailer plug, vehicle side. (Blue I think) If there is a connection, the brake should see it and you should have an indicator light. When you activate the brake the test light should lite up. If not, move up to the brake actuator and test the blue wire. If there is nothing at the actuator, check the black wire. It is power to the controller. If no power there, check fuses again. If it does pick it up at the plug, connect the trailer and test the trailer itself. First ground to the trailer and then to the truck. Most problems are ground wire related. Then move to the axle and test it there. For the brakes to work, and even show on the indicator, there has to be a ground and power to the brakes themselves. There are 2 wires to each brake... a ground and a power. Test across both wires to make sure you have power and ground. You can also hook another trailer to your truck or another truck to your trailer. Lights can work through trailer ball ground. Brakes can't. leave the trailer unhooked from the trailer and hook the wiring up and test the lights. That usually will indicate a good or faulty ground. Also make sure there is a GOOD ground to the truck frame/body. Also try http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx. They have a great website with lots of info. Hope this helps. Mike

You likely need diode isolators on the turn signal wiring on the trailer, or on vehicle side connector. Your local auto parts store should have what you need, and show you how to install them.

None of the lights or anything work on the trailer. they did on the trip home except for the brake light on left side. i dont know which fuses to check and where to find them or what else it could be.all...


Hi MW,

First, here are the pinouts for the 4-way.

White = Ground
Yellow = Left turn/Brake
Green = Right turn Brake
Brown = Tail and clearance lights

Ground should be 10ga.
Others 14 ga

To troubleshoot this, you'll need a test light or multimeter and a helper to press the brakes, etc.

From the plug on the vehicle, clip the ground to the white wire.
Probe Yellow - s/b out
Press brakes - s/b on
Left signal - s/b blinking

Probe Green - s/b out
Press brakes - s/b on
Right signal - s/b blinking

Probe Brown - s/b out
Switch on headlights - s/b on

If all these pass, the trouble is on the trailer. Keep working down to the tail lights themselves. Concentrate on the green and brown wires.

Hope this helps
Mike
