Question about 1996 Nissan Pathfinder
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.
