Question about 2005 Nissan Armada

1 Answer

Tow package interface

Anyone have any hints...? I been trying to get my trailer connected to Polak interface that came with the SUVs tow package but when I connect the simple 4 wire connection, no light come on. I tested the wiring and lights on the trailer with a battery and it all works. Another clue confirming it's related to the SUV is that no DC voltage it detected when they should. I.e. brakes are pressed. I'm not sure where to go from here...I know of a converter..perhaps that's damaged, but I can't locate it...if anyone has any insight - that would be very much appreciated. Thanks you, Jorge

Nissan had a recall on the trailer harness wiring. Do you know if it has been completed on your vehicle? If not, when you take it in ask them about your issue, you could probably get some free advice/work.

I have a 1998 jeep grand cherokee Laredo limited 5.9. I am trying to get the tow package electrical to work, but it doesn't seam to get any power to the plug in at the trailer hitch. I have checked


sure, why not look that up in the FSM.?
why not say which function fails.
park, turns, brake? backup (all 4?) (check ground #5)
after market wire job or factory tow package?
we cant guess any of that.

you can see all the orig. wiring here.
ZJ, click that and 8w wiring chapter.
and see it all, every inch of wire in car."STOCK"
stock means, as it left the factory Day 1.

I looked and didnt see a tow option in the FSM. 1998.
but didnt read every page.

Lost power to turn sig airbag light and heater control.I pluged trailer lightes in to my tow package


The trailer might have a bad ground. My camper does the same thing to my truck. Try directly connecting the trailer ground to the frame of your vehicle. This might solve the problem as it did for me.

There is a trailer wiring jack at the back bumper of my 2006 Mazda Tribute but there is no power to any of the pins. How do I fix this so that my trailer lighting works?


The 2006 Mazda Tribute w/o factory tow package can't accept a trailer wiring harness. If you install one you will probably burn out the central computer as I did. I had a top notch trailer hitch instaler try three different brand harnesses. I feel Mazda should reimburse me the cost of this car new, as I bought it to tow and was told that it could tow 3500 lbs. False representation!

2001 F150 supercrew w/ factory towing - No tail lights on trailer


Not sure which fuse you checked.
The Engine Compartment Fuse Panel ( Battery Junction Box / BJB ) is where the fuse is for the trailer tow adapter parking lamps.
Fuse # 5 is the fuse for the parking lamps, and the reversing lamps.

Next is the trailer tow adapter park lamp relay. This is what BJB Fuse #5 feeds, and the coil is operated by the truck's parking lamps. This is also in the BJB, Relay 201, it is the 1/2 size relay.

Not sure what you took a resistance reading from on the trailer tow adapter.

If you want, you can pull the trailer tow park lamp relay, and jumper the normally open contacts, which should provide power at the trailer tow adapters, regardless of the truck's lights.

2006 dodge ram 3500 no left turn signal or left brake coming out of the tow package......no power back there for those lights. any solutions before duck tape and toggle switches are implemented???? LOL


There will be a connector where the tow package wiring hooks up into the main wiring harness. Trace the wires from the trailer plug back till you find the connection place. Wiggle or carefully remove outer protection.
You will find the bad connection if you are patient.
It is to nice of a rig for duct tape and toggle switches.

I do not have power on the aux. terminal in the trailer plug on a 2008 dodge ram. Any ideas?


You have got 7 pin trailer connector that was included in the optional trailer tow package. This trailer tow package also includes an electric trailer brake wiring provision that terminates at a connector located on top of the large body harness connection under the instrument panel to the left of the break pedal, as well as an electric trailer brake pigtail harness and an instruction card that are stored in the glove box when the vehicle is shipped from the factory. You will need to add an electric brake controller of your choice that will plug-in to the harness and that will also give you power on your auxiliary circuit.

Rear taillights and turn signal lights not working


I asked that becauses of the wiring for the tow setup. If the previous owner had uhaul or one of the other tow companies out there install the wires for the tow package they use a crappy little product that they clamp to the wire and push a pin that cuts the casing and connects the circuit. It also seriously weakens the cables, and lets water in to the wire. Since you have a tow package I'd focus on those wires back there sounds like you may have a short. Those pins do have some wire exposure when installed right and I've seen them bundled and taped on the early 2000's explorers without being individually taped first, which leads to shorts and non working turn signals and brake lights.
