Get a harness that just tees into the rear lamps. On the drivers side rear of the vehicle you should find a connector for the back lamps.Disconnect it there and tee into that harness.Route the wires out of harms way and you are goos to go.Hope this helps,

    Hope you got it solved but they now sell a wiring harness that clips right into the back of the driver side rear light.

97 nissan pathfinder dash and tail lights keeps burning out the fuse i know theres a short but where is the best place to look


I have to ask, what was the last thing you were hooking up before the problem started. Did you do any wiring under the dash possibly a radio install, or a wiring harness for trailer at the back of the car. If so, you should look for shorts in those areas. I don't know how easy this will be for you, but start looking.GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

96 Pathfinder. I want to Install a flat four trailer connector


It's easiest to buy a T-One Connector. No need to cut wires, it will plug in to your factory harness and give you a flat 4 connector.

Wiring diagram


Hook up the trailer to the vehicle. Under the rear bumper you will find a thick wire harness that runs from left to right or vica versa. Choose a location to strip open the harness to gain access to the different color wires. Open the trailer coupling. remove all wires and split them apart. Now start with say the right indicator light on the vehicle. Earth should be established via the grounding method of the trailer hook steel on steel of the vehicle. Connect any wire of the trailer to the now flashing right indicator light. Go through them all till the right indicator bulb flashes on the trailer. A good approach to determine which wire is active, is to make a test light from an old bulb connector some have already two wires connected ie; pos neg. neg the tester onto any part of the vehicle chassis and the pos to the now live wire. Go through them all till all wires meet up. Now go on and extend the harness by means of soldering properly and insulating that wire from the main harness to the female fitting of the trailer connector. At each connection on the fitting fit on properly the different wires and do the same to the male connector from the trailer so that all lines up inside the two connectors. Good luck

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 .

Parking lights on Nissan Frontier on - trailer parking not. 4 pin connector to factory connector (after market sealed wiring) - brake and turn signals work - no power to "brown" wire at factory connector...


First check the fuses. There may be one for trailer running lights. Check also power at the harness. If the brake lights and turn signals are seperate, there has to be a converter from 5 to 4 wire. For the power to feed back to the brake lights it sounds like the vehicle wiring is direct and not using a converter... or one of the bulbs on the trailer is contacting both contacts. Try http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx and maybe get a simple 4 pin tester that plugs into the 4 pin connecter. Hope this helps.

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.
