Check the wires going to the trailer and make sure none have rubbed through. sounds like they are shorting out together. when they all blink are they dim. if they are, sounds like they would be shorting to that ground.
There are fuses for the trailer plug in the fuse block
This is the fuse block under the hood, if there is no power to the fuses then it can be the reason.
If the fuse does not have power to it then it has to be a wiring issue because power comes from the battery to the fuse box. If surrounding fuses have power than the box itself is probably not at fault, although this does not eliminate that possibility completely. You will need to inspect the wiring going to the box and right under the box where they all connect. If the wiring is good then a swap of the fuse box with known good one will need to be made.

I just bought a horse trailer and when I hook it up to my 2006 Silverado, the lights don't work. My trailer hitch and wiring system are new, and the previous trailer owner tested the lighting of


Some people wire trailer plugs differently. If the plug is not wired differently than yours, make sure the tow ball is clean. No rust. That's where the trailer gets its ground from. Usually they will work if thats the case, but not right. I can't remember what the wire colors are right now. Go to etrailer and look up the diagram.

Can't get the lights on camper to work when I turn on a signal light both tail lights on camper flash thats the only lights that work . I drive a 2004 silverado


if they camper was wired for an older/other make of truck it might be different check to see if the yellow(left side turn/brake) wire maybe connected or crossed with the green(right turn/brake) wire,also see if the plug in wiring under the rear bumper is a stock plug in or if some one tried to go cheap and use"scotch-locks" on the tail light wires and crossed something under there,the parts store sells a plug in tester for your truck's particular plug that will tell you if the truck has the issue or if it's the camper,also check the ground,hope this helps,and good luck

Trailer wiring


Have you checked the fuse box under the hood? There are seperate fuses for the truck lights and the trailer lights. If the fuses look good use a 12 volt test light to check for power on the turn signal pins when the brake is pushed. The brake lights and turn signals use the same wires to work. Power here would indicate the wiring and fuses on the truck is all good, meaning the trouble is on the trailer. Check the bulbs to be sure they are the correct ones, they should be dual element bulbs. Make sure you have a good ground on the trailer, usually the white wire in the 4 way plug is grounded to the trailer frame, do not depend on the trailer ball to be the ground, this is asking for trouble.

2003 Chevy HD trailer wiring problem


I have the exact same issue. I have also tested my trailer on other vehicles and it works fine. I even purchased a light up tester and found the problem at the harness. It seems like a bad ground to me but I can't seem to find one.

The trailer lights have a common brake/turn wire while the truck has seperate turn and brake lights. I think the problem lies with the device that marries the two for the trailer wiring but I don't know where to find it?

I had the same problem on 06 ram, the problem is one of the controll modules under the fuse panel under the hood on the drivers side. My trailer mechanic told me this was a common problem and dodge will only charge about 700 dollars to replace it. he solved my problem by installing a converter on the wires to the tail lights of the truck then running down to the trailer plug. it was most likely caused by a short in the trailer and dodge in their infinate wisdom failed to put a fuse between the trailer and control module. and by the way even though this is a manufacturing defect they will not warranty the module. hope this helps.

We have a 2005 Silverado. The parking lights and turn signals work on the truck but the right side doesn't work in the trailer plug.


under the rear of the truck you find a light module the truck tail lights will be hooked to it as well as the harness to your trailer plug check for power coming out of the module if no power for signal module is bad if you have power check wiring to plug and the plug its self let me know if you need any more help

Turn signals won't work in 98 Chevy Silverado


Have you checked to make sure you have a good ground connection from truck to trailer? If you don't it may be using your turn signal circuit for grounding. One way you might be able to check is to hook up trailer with key on and no lights turned on, then try turn signals. If they work this way then turn marker lights on, if they then do not work it is a ground issue. Otherwise it could be the trailer side of connection is not mated up to truck side of connection(left turn to left turn etc.). Hope this is helpful. KS
