Question about 2005 Honda Pilot

1 Answer

I have a problem when hooking up a trailer, the brake and turn signals work fine, but the lights that come on when you turn the headlights on do not, it is not a fuse problem, as the fuse is fine, and it is not a problem with the trailer. Additional Information: When test light is put across both connectors to trailer light fuse, it is *always* drawing electricity. The trailer wiring had been patched together so many times we decided to install a new lighting kit on it, it worked before we took it to wal-mart for an oil change, but didn't afterwards. Also, could I get a wiring diagram for the trailer lights.

Test the connection with lights on using a test light, if none turn the test light on, make sure the ground is good, recheck your new connection. maybe it's connected to a relay, if it is, test the relay by bypassing it. it's all a process of elimination. a wiring diagram for a trailer is useless because people hook them up by the means they got. again, it's a process of elimination. to hook up the lighting, first do the tail lights, then the signal lights, thay are also used as brake lights as they are brighter

I turn the left signal light on and it works fine, I turn the right signal on and the vehicle right blicks, but the left trailer blinks. All brake lights work. What is wrong? Ground connects are good


Who installed the wiring on the vehicle ( dealer, self etc.)
Was trailer wiring pre installed or someone else did it
How old is the trailer?
it seems that there is a bad connection on the vehicles wiring. perhaps wrong part was used or connection from vehicle right turn- to wiring harness is not hooked on properly. Depending on how confortable you feel, test to see if there is proper electrical current flowing to the wiring harness ( right turn, left turn, brakes, headlights) you should be able to detect which area on the harness does not get power when the vehicles right blinker is on. It is not too complicated, just requires deductive reasoning and a tester ( about $5 at Kragens) No harm will come to your vehicle's electrical system by doing this; worst case scenario: you blow a fuse.
If vehicle is working properly, it will be a bad connection on trailer

Trailer lights do not work unless headlights/parking lights are turned on.


your trailer is not wired correctly for your vehicle if you have to have the headlights or parking lights on and the turn signal or brake lights on your trailer will not work otherwise

yes it sounds like the converter is no good,the converters purpose is, when you have a trailer it uses the brake and signal on the same bulb, so if you were to step on the brake and have the left signal on, then the left brake light would turn into the signal,on your truck it has sperate lights for signal and brake, the converter converts this into one light for the trailer, so just replace the converter and everything should work fine, hope this helps.

All lights work and brake light at top works. brake lights on bottom left and right don't work. It was hook up to trailer wires connection. going down the road and when you turn on the right turn signal...


Check a few things...
- The bulbs
- Check for ground at brake lamp connectors
- Check your wiring at the connectors for power
- Check for another fuse blown
- Do not hook up the trailer until you fix the ground problem on the trailer
- On some models, there is a module to control the rear/trailer lighting system. There may be a problem in the module.

New trailer wiring for my 06 Nissan Maxima wont work on traile


Have you tried a heavy duty flasher? Also, if your signals & brake lights are 2 different bulbs, as in amber for signals & red for stop, then you will need a small in line converter to separate those 2 as most vehicles use same bulb for signal & stop.

Is this a 4 way or 6 way connection system? If your truck is wrong, then all factory equipped trailer package harnesses would be wrong, tell your trailer guy...I don't think so.
Is this the first trailer you have hauled?
Let me know, and we will go from there.
