My trailer that has electric brakes installed and a 7 prong plug connector. My Tundra has a tow package with a 7 prong plug.


One of the vehicles would also need to be fitted with a electric brake controller. If the Tundra already has one fitted then the answer would have a 99% chance of yes.

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..

I have a 2005 Frontier with factory tow package ... just had problem with right trailer turn signal not working .... dealer replaced blown fuse .... Question: In case this happens on the road, where is the...


I actually know the solution. I just went through it. It's a very long story, and I cannot tell you how mad I am at the Nissan Dealership in Grand Junction, Colorado, for not knowing the answer to this question right away. It has cost me over $500 and 500 miles of driving to learn the location of this tiny fuse holder. Look straight up above the brake pedal and accelerator pedal (under the dashboard) and see a wiring harness that plugs into the "Body control module" above the steering column. You should see two mini fuse holders sticking out of this harness. They are whitish in color, like a gallon milk bottle. One is for the right trailer turn signal, and one is for the left.
This is the only year Nissan Frontier where this is true (as far as I know) it is the result of a recall on that year where they installed this harness. If your truck went in for the recall, then you will have the same harness located in the same place. Good luck, Bob Walker, Moab, Utah

2005 Nissan Frontier...when I step on the brakes my right turn signal comes on but doesn't blink? when I turn on the Left turn signal and step on the brakes, it blinks just fine! What's causing this?????


If the turn signal bulbs are the same as the turn signal bulbs it would indicate the brake light on the left is not working. If the brake lights AND the right turn signal come on it could indicate a wire is getting a cross feed from an improper source. If you are comfortable with electrical systems - If you have a tow package you may want to check the wires to the trailer. Otherwise have it checked by an electrical shop.

Parking lights on Nissan Frontier on - trailer parking not. 4 pin connector to factory connector (after market sealed wiring) - brake and turn signals work - no power to "brown" wire at factory connector...


First check the fuses. There may be one for trailer running lights. Check also power at the harness. If the brake lights and turn signals are seperate, there has to be a converter from 5 to 4 wire. For the power to feed back to the brake lights it sounds like the vehicle wiring is direct and not using a converter... or one of the bulbs on the trailer is contacting both contacts. Try http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx and maybe get a simple 4 pin tester that plugs into the 4 pin connecter. Hope this helps.

I do not have power on the aux. terminal in the trailer plug on a 2008 dodge ram. Any ideas?


You have got 7 pin trailer connector that was included in the optional trailer tow package. This trailer tow package also includes an electric trailer brake wiring provision that terminates at a connector located on top of the large body harness connection under the instrument panel to the left of the break pedal, as well as an electric trailer brake pigtail harness and an instruction card that are stored in the glove box when the vehicle is shipped from the factory. You will need to add an electric brake controller of your choice that will plug-in to the harness and that will also give you power on your auxiliary circuit.

I just installed the 7 pin factory trailer harness but i have no right turn or trailer markers . 2005 nissan frontier


In the passenger side behind the plastic kick panel there is a control module that works the trailer lights, if you got the towing package. My lights were malfunction and it turned out the unit in the kick panel was not wired up properly from the dealer. Have a dealer check it or get the installation diagrams from a nissan dealer or the web and investigate your module on your own. Best of luck.

Can you tell me if the 2005 Colorado came with electric brake wiring with the towing/trailer package?


Any trailer tow package vehicle should have at least the light wires.On a truck of that size it probably didn't come with a seven pin plug but it should have a four pin for lights. Hope this helps...Dan
