Question about Chevrolet Venture

1 Answer

I have a 2004 chevy venture. I was towing my boat recently and realized that the wiring for the trailer somehow got frayed and when I moved them around a little there was a small spark. Then I realized that this little spark caused some car issues. First the tail lights don't work, (but the turn signal lights and break lights work fine), the dashboard lights don't work, and the chime when you open the door and leave you key in goes off even if the key is not in there.

Truck won't shut off until I unplug my tent trailer? Just pick up new trailer and had a 7 pin connector added to my truck along with a brake controller


It sounds like someone messed up to me! Apparently, the brake controller got wired into an ignition circuit that it should not have gotten wired to. When accessories are added to a vehicle, it is extremely important that the vehicle wiring diagrams are used so that you know EXACTLY what you are tying into. Some of the Chevy trucks that are sold with trailer towing packages already have the wiring for brake controllers under the dash. This makes installation easy and is already tied into the correct things.

We have recently acquired a 2010 Fort Ranger, which have a 4 wires connection, but our trailer Venture 1080 have 6 wires with surge brake system. We want to know how to do this connection?


Is your trailer within the tow limit or your Ranger? If it is within the limit ... go to the auto parts store and get the proper plug that should plug directly into your Ranger to provide the signal you need. You will probably have to add a brake controller and find the wire for the brkes under the dash ... presuming your ranger is so wired.

I am connecting a trailer towing harness to my Nissan 2004 Titan (2wd), to tow my boat and need to know what the color codes to the parking, stop, and reverse wires are.


if you go to the parts store they make them ready to plug in you will have to just unplug the tail lights and plug the wire harness inplace of it then itll plug back into the original spot.

Check Fuses # 36 & 42, these are the fuses for the trailer tow adapter ( separated from the trucks.

What is the towing capacity of a 2004 Solara?


Not trying to sound like dodging the question but, If it's not written in your owners manual, your best bet is to call local toyota dealer & ask to be sure. Wouldn't want to guess on that & end up blowing your transmission or engine.
