Yes. But do you have seperate yellow turn signal lights in the rear or do the turn signals work independant of the brake lights? If yes then you need to wire in a taillight converter. It takes your seperate left & right turn signals combines them with your brake lights on 2 wires instead of 3 leaving you with your normal 4 wires in total instead of 5. 1 Left turn & brake light. 1 Right turn & brake. 1 Taillight. 1 Ground. = 4 wires in total. If you dont have seperate rear turn signals just find left turn wire in taillight assembly, Right turn wire & Taillight & a good ground & you are done. On trailer plug yellow is left, green is right ,brown is tailight & white is ground.

2004 f150 no left turn/break lights fuses ok runnig lights and right side works fine bulbs ok checked wiring ok do not have tow package but has trailer wiring harness.


Generally,on a Ford pickup it will be the wiring under the truck.Follow the wiring and look for corrosion.Pull on every wire at every connector,you most likely will find a wire corroded apart at a connector.Just bypass this bad connection by wiring around the connector.

Wiring diagram for a toe bar


that will take some major rewiring, no?

front toebar. wiring. to tower hitch.

first off we dont know what is towing car, nor its hitch wiring

but in most cases, you may need and adaptor, to convert simple

USA wiring to Euro type wiring.

there are 2 systems. that cant just be wired in willy nilly.

is this permanent? one tow , only

or for ever. we cant guess that.

if 1 tow ,why not use clamp on aux light bar and get it done

rent them at u-haul?

if perm, is need , get a pro shop to do this.

how to do this and not damage the cars , electronics that controls

lights can be very tricky.

the safest way is to have new connector installed to rear lights.

to the main harness, then you unplug the cars harness side

and then connect the tow bar new custom harness connector to the rear.

none of this is easy or simple.

tell more get more.

Need directions to fit towbar and wiring on holden captiva sx (2007)


there is a standard tow bar and a 2000kg for genuine tow bars
you need to remove both tail lights,the bumper bar and reinforcement bracket, spare wheel and exhaust hangars on rear mufflers, remove the tie down bracket on LHS chassis rail(dont need this or the bolts that hold it on), so you can then bolt in place either of the 2 tow bars.
genuine wiring patch harness for trailer plug is my suggestion since its plug straight into vehicle and interfaces with vehicle, goes in right hand rear compartment remove lid then remove box, interface connector for trailer harness is there.
instructions can be printed out from dealers if you ask
some new kits dont come with instructions in kits because information is on dealer computers
there is a template to print out to cut hole in bumper bar for tounge area of tow bar, uses centre square dimple in bar but its a bit wider.

There is a trailer wiring jack at the back bumper of my 2006 Mazda Tribute but there is no power to any of the pins. How do I fix this so that my trailer lighting works?


The 2006 Mazda Tribute w/o factory tow package can't accept a trailer wiring harness. If you install one you will probably burn out the central computer as I did. I had a top notch trailer hitch instaler try three different brand harnesses. I feel Mazda should reimburse me the cost of this car new, as I bought it to tow and was told that it could tow 3500 lbs. False representation!

How do i connect a tow hitch socket to make my trailer lights work


If you want to install a plug for the trailer lights it is better to go to a parts store and get a wiring harness that plugs into your cars wiring harness near the rear lights. That way you don't have to spend time finding the right wires to cut and tie into. These harnesses cost more than a splice in one, but can be installed in just minutes.

Car wont start


The Ford dealer or a junk yard would be my suggestions for obtaining that harness. you should be able to bypass the switch by connecting the white/pink wire with the red/light blue wire in the harness.
For safety's sake, only do this as a temporary measure.

Wiring harness diagram


Your question is not clear, 2002 trailblazer has a towing harness, in order to find each wire, use a ohmmeter and try out each application.

In case of male harness of a camper you can test it with 12 volts in each wire looking which light is on and if it is different position cut wires and make similar wiring
