Can I make a suggestion? I'm not sure what year or model truck were are speaking of, but there are trailer light kits available that simply plug into the rear socket and the harness is ran down to the trailer. These kits have a small solid state controller that will keep the amperes in the circuit to a max of 3 amps.Otherwise, your going to have problems with them blowing fuses and or have bad connections. I recommend these kits all the time, and I have not cut a wire in years, it looks more professional and it is what the factory uses on vehicles.
With that being said, and you still want to cut the wires, use a test light and activate the right,left,park and brake lights one at a time at the rear socket, when the test light blinks or lights during one of the functions, you have now identified the correct wire for that particular circuits function.

    I just seen your vehicle type. Do not cut the wires!!! You have a body control module that is responsible for light operation. Purchase the kit at any autozone,pep boys or other well supplied auto store.

Is there a wiring diagram to fit a towbar wiring / trailer lights to my 2013 Hyundai ix35


if you have the proper kit , the it is a simple matter of pulling the harness connector from a tail light assemble and inserting the harness on to the assembly the fitting the harness back on to it
the wires are color coded and all new trailer plug connections have the pin numbers for the color wire to get the correct lights working at the back
if you are not power or circuit savvy then get the towbar shop to wire it up or get an auto electrician to do the job

Tail light wiring connectors and wiring diagram


A test light checking each connector would be faster and easier to do. Maybe somebody may have a illustration for you but by far a simple test light is all you need with a helper turning on the different lights as you check them out and writing all your findings down

Need wiring color code for a 2000 saturn SL2 for hooking up a trailer light four pin connector


The trailer wires are left turn, right turn, running lights(the smaller elements on both tail-lights and any side lights) and ground. Energise the corresponding lights and connect the wires accordingly. Find a good ground. A piercing test probe will find the correct wire for you if you can't track it to the bulb.

Installing a 7-pin trailer towing recptical on a 1991 Ford F150.


I believe you can look up the manufacturer of the trailer plug kit and find the wiring diagram there. On alot of the trailer plug kits, they have pics and diagrams in the package. The 7 pin plug (truck side) is available with the pig tail set up that plugs directly into the wiring harness for the lights. Then all you would have to worry about is the 2 wires for the electric brakes.

Tow plug


I take it the blinkers and brake lights work ok when not hooked up to the trailer? If yes, then the wiring to the tow hitch is not hooked up correctly. How many wires to trailer pig tail connection? U can have up to 7 depending on what you tow. Check to make sure these wires are hooked up from the truck to tow plug correctly: 7 wired---
brown-Rt turn and brake light, yellow-backup, white-ground, blue-electric brake, green-tail running lights, black-battery charger, red-left turn signal and brake light. Let me know if u have something other than 7 wire, I'll get the wiring color and source info for u.
