When hooking up trailer I get no left hand turn signal. Nissan turn signal works fine. Couldn't find a problem with harness or other wiring. Is there a fuse box I don't know about?

If the Nison lights are working it has to be the wireing from the car to the trailer or the left bulb or socket on the trailer. Also if this trailer wasen't wired for this spicific car it probably won't work right anyway. When checking the wireing I find that findind the ground wire on both the car and trailer are one and the same at the connection . Then it just a matter of checking each wire with a batery to determine which wire is for which light. And making the right connection to the car. Some cars the signal wire and the brake light wire are the same wire .

It sounds like your green and yello wires are shorted together somewhere along the length of the harness. I would check the wires on the trailer first. Easier yet, if you have another trailer to connec or access to another to use for testing, connect to it and see if the problem repeats; if it does the trouble is in the vehicle's wiring.

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

you must check the connection where the truck harness meets the added trailer harness on the truck itself not the trailer harness.

There are separate fuses for the trailer turn signals.Make sure they are good.They are in the under hood fuse block.If they are then check for corrosion in the trailer harness wiring.Hope this helps.Good luck.

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.

Trailer Wiring Harness


for your trailer you need park light, brake light, left and right signal light. the best way is to tap them in the rear tail light wires.

2001 Sportage Trailer wire connections


brown to the tail lights. yellow to left turn signal. green to right turn signal. this is a basic 3 wire hook-up i use all the time w/4wire connectors for all trailers. white wire is not used. ground is established when you hook to the ball.
to find the correct wire to splice to, use a testor (has a clip to the bare wire, and a sharp point to the truck frame). using a needle, push it through a wire to rear light harness. turn on the turn signal. check if the connection is the blinker, testing until you have the blinker wire. the tail lights can be attached to the license plate wire. brakes and blinkers use same wire, so brake lights will work whenever the turn signal is attached.
to be sure everything is working right, have a second person go inside the truck and work the signals, brakes and lights one at a time while you are at the back of the trailer telling what to do.
