Question about 2006 GMC Sierra

2 Answers

No 12volt current going to my trailer (boat) hook up from the car.

I am trying to hook up my 96 ford explorer with a 5way connector so I can tow the boat. I have checked the wires that are tere with a circut tester and I have no power. Now I found the white wire from the reverse or back up lights on the car, put the car in reverse and the tester lit up from that wire, but all others are dead.
any help would be appreciated

Thanks
Len

There are some good easy to install boat plugs at the parts stores all vehicles have a split. if you look under the vehicle almost in the middle near rear bumper you should see a plug set up. the part you get plugs in between the two sections. you may have to drop your spare tire to find it. my 98 yukon had it so i am sure your ford will have it too. Good luck.

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.

If you did not get an owners manual with your truck ( purchased used ), you can download one from Ford :

I have a 97 explorer my trailer lights are on without lights on tow vehicle on.


The only solution is a rewire from the vehicle lights to the trailer connector. £10 should do it with any mechanic. Anymore, they are wiping your eye.

I am looking for the wire under the rear of my 99 explorer to hook up the wiring harness for trailer or boat. HELP


From the factory there is an unused plug in the left brake light harness. You can get a tow light cable from Ford that's JUST for that, and its a 4 flat plug on the end. I 'found' mine in the compartment on the left where the jack is. Just peek in there with a light. It was still in the package. Otherwise call Ford, the thing plugs in and you route it down and there's a bracket to hold part of it under the bumper to an existing screw location.
-Cheers.

Trailer Lighting Kit


Do u have a 4,5,6,or 7 way (wire) system? If it's 4 way it allows basic hookup for 3 lighting functions:
GREEN is right turn signal and stop light, YELLOW is left turn signal and stop light, BROWN is license, and side marker lights, WHITE is ground.

5way is same as above, but adds a BLUE wire for brake signal or aux. power. Its used on pop up campers, utility and boat trailers.

6way (rectangle plug) green=right turn signal, yellow=left turn signal, brown=taillight, white=ground, red and blue can be used for brake control or auxilary. Used on small motorcycle trailers, snowmobile trailers, utility trailers.

6way Round Plug, same as above, but blue is electric brakes, and black (sometimes red,) 12v; note:sometimes red/black need to be reversed w/ blue to suit the trailer.

7way adds an additional pin at plug in for 12volt power or back up lights. Whoa! hope that answers your question w/out confusing u. Let me know if u need more info.
