Since you don't mention if your lights work on the car itself, I'll assume they do. The first thing you should do is use a test light and make sure everything works at the plug coming off the car including the ground. If all is good there the next step is checking the lights on the trailer. If they failed at the car plug that must be fixed first. When checking on the trailer check all of the grounds and plugs first since this is the most common problem in trailers, mainly the grounds.

Changed fuses fow tow connector. #3 and # 7. Now the left trailer light,signal, brake,etc works while only right tail light on trailer still works. On right side, the tail works, but not the brake,or...


I would recommend taking out the tail light. Get a test light, have an assantant step on brake. U will see the bulb in tailamp light up. Probe the wire w/your test lamp. That is brake wire. Repeat that process for blinker.. Drop down those two wires. Hook that to the same side on trailor. Repeat for left and you should be all set.

Brake and taillights not working...I had a towing package on my 2002 Impreza, the trunk was leaking and the control unit for the trailer got flooded and shorted. Now my brake and taillights are not...


I think this is a mechanical problem ... when you brake it refuse to send a signal to the tail lights.
I suggest that you need to check the terminal block connection between them.

I was wiring a trailer pigtail to an 06 wrangler and blew the turn signal bulbs but the fuses are good. I have running and reverse lights but no brake lights or turn signals


If the bulbs and the fuses are good, check the brake light switch. You might of shorted out the switch when working on the pig tail. Always use a test light or volt meter when installing pig tails. This way you can check for power and ground before hooking a wire up to help prevent shorts. But by what you have said it does sound as if the brake light switch is now bad.

I am not getting power off of my trailer plug for my drivers side directional and brake light but it works on the truck. There is no power at the terminal or the wiring too the back of the trailer plug....


Id say your pig tail to the trailor is having high resistance or a wire is cracked, Follow the pigtail under bumper, It plugs into main harness, Disconnect and look for damage or a dry white powder. If everything else works as you say? And your positive the vehical being toweds lighting works on another vehical? than the pig tail is bad, replace at any local parts store

I need to hook up a boat trailor Whats the color code for a 1995


I suspect that the 4 wire harness includes a ground, so you may not be able to connect both brake lights and turn signals, which are separate lamps on the pickup. You may need to get an adapter.

In any case, the color codes on the pickup are:

Tail lights -- pink/blue
Brake Lights -- green/yellow
Left turn signal -- gray/blue
Right turn signal -- gray/red
Ground -- black

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.

Boat traler lights dim when break is applied


Your turnsignal flasher needs to be replaced with a heavy duty flasher.
also, your boat trailor wiring harness is grounded incorrectly or the harness pig tail is wired incorrectly.
this is why when you excite your tail lights and brake lights that your reverse lights come on and the reason that the lights are dimmimg is because your circuits are looking for the correct ground.
