Your best bet is to go to an auto parts store or dealer and see if they have an adapter for trailer lights. Most of the newer vehicles have adapters the just plug into the existing wiring harness and you don't need to worry about splicing things. Also on some vehicles hooking up directly to the wiring harness doesn't work too well because of the circuit not being able to support the extra voltage drop. The adapter usually have that taken care of.

What are the correct wiring colour codes for the rear lighting circuits, so that I can tow a caravan?


under no circumstances cut any wires
the trailer plug is generic so proper trailer wires will have the correct colors for the plug pin numbers
by using a multimeter or circuit light you can determine which wire in the block is live and then connect the corresponding color in and then to the correct pin number in the plug
probably quicker if you get a tow bar shop to fit the plug for your
takes around 10 minutes to fit the correct harness that they will have

The tail lights on my 2006 dodge grand caravan don't work. Yet all the other lights do. I have replaced the light switch on dash but it did not fix the problem. Any ideas what could be wrong?


Get the wiring standard for trailer socket on car / caravan .
Something like this
http://www.caravantalk.co.uk/caravan-advice/new-to-caravanning/electrics-guide/12-volt-systems
Then get a 12v probe and test the voltage is coming out the correct pins on the car when the tail lights are turned on.
http://www.amazon.com/6-36V-Circuit-Test-Probe-Indicator/dp/B0065R1CK4
Check the Earth Connections on the caravans tail lights.
Check the Caravan has an earth connection to the car body.
https://caravanchronicles.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/caravanchronicles-wiring1.jpg
see how pin 3 shows an earth wire it would have a wire on car socket pin 3 going to the car body. If the earth wire is corroded or broken I think the tail lights on the caravan would not work. It may be a different pin on your setup .

Trailer light connection from 1991 VOLVO 740


Use a 12 volt test light and probe each connector cavity to see which wires do what and then re-wire according to that.

Trailer wiring problem. Tow vehicle is a 2008 Grand Caravan with 4 wire plug. Double checked, plug function works fine. When trailer is plugged to tow vehicle with tow vehicle lights OFF the trailer...


Most likely the brown wire from the trailer connector is connected to a constant battery voltage source, and it should be connected to the vehicle running light circuit, however someone might have wired the trailer connector up that way on purpose so that the trailer does not draw power from the vehicle running lights and possibly damage the vehicle running light circuit. (Dodge/Chrysler vehicles do have delicate lighting systems) Here are some images to help assist you, and the 4 way connector is the same as the 5 way connector just without the blue wire for the trailer brakes.

Electrical towing wiring problem on Grand Caravan 2006


Well the BEST way to fix that is take the Van AND Trailer to the dealer and make them check it over and get it working. Sounds like they screwed up., and are trying to blame the trailer. The 4 pins are easy to check Running lights, Left turn, Right turn and Ground. I suspect the 7 pin is wired wrong. I dont know why they put a 7 pin wiring plug on? Those are used for largeer trailers that need a battery feed and electric brakes

Utility trailer wiring to 1998 Dodge Carivan


Trailer end; Red=Brake
Brown=Running lights
Yellow=Left
Green=Right
White=Ground
You will need a turn and brake signal box IF, you have different bulbs for brake and turn lamps. If the brake and turn bulbs are one(red)lens than no box will be required. Thanks, Dana
