Starting at the tail light harness coming from the truck, brown wire is for tail lights, black is ground, dark green is right turn and yellow is left turn, the turn signal wires are also the brake light wires. that sounds weird but if you hit the brakes and turn one of the signals on the actual brake light will blink. hope this helps you.

I dont know how to wire lights to trailer from 1986 toyota pickup


You need a "test light". Then you turn on the circuit you want to wire in, tail lights, brake lights, blinkers and poke around the back of your light sockets until the test light comes on. Then you splicew into that wire and run it to your plug in. If you don't know which wire is what on the trailer, hook it up and with the wire fastened into the truck harness, try it on the trailer harness wires until you get the proper lights working. Process of elimination. Hope this helps.

I have installed a brake controller and I cant find the brake switch which I must tie into to make the trailer brakes work. I think I found the switch but the wires seem awfully thin.


Hi, if you pull the connector off the switch and the brake lights no longer work, you have the right wires. These wires do not carry the current for the trailer brakes. You will have another wire from the controller to the trailer plug for those. That wire is usually 14 gauge or larger--follow the directions to get the proper size. You are hooking in to the brake switch wire just so the controller knows when you are stepping on the pedal. Make sure you connect to the wire that does not have power except when you step on the pedal. I would tell you the color, but I do not have the diagram. Use a 12 volt test light to see which terminal in the connector is hot. The wire you want is the other one. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

2000 GMC SIERRA Pickup---- Has been equiped to tow trailer. Brake lights in rear of truck and on cab does not work when brake pedal is depressed. They work though when you throw the lever on electric...


Disconnect the trailer wiring and recheck the vehicle lighting. If it returns to normal, then obviously the trailer is the problem. Quite often the trailer plug loses its independent ground and it will back feed thru other circuits trying to locate one. Especially if its a boat trailer, water intrusion can cause havoc on the grounds due to corrosion. The under hood electrical center has circuits intentionally meant to be used for trailers. You CANNOT just jumper into the rear lights of the truck (tail, signals and brakes coming from the tail light connector). Because it uses a multi-function switch, the brakes and signals are actually the same circuit, and have to be wired separately for a trailer plug to operate.

How to wire a towbar to a renault laguna ? what


Hi there,

If you have the Renault end, I've got the rest. I have the pinouts for 7 wire, 6 Wire and 4 Wire, One of them will fit the bill

Plug Types/Application
7 Way - RV Trailers, Horse and Utility Trailers
6 Way - Horse, Stock and Utility
4 Way - Utility Trailers

Columns are: Color, Function, Mark on the plug.

Seven wire Trailer plugs:

Horse, stock or utility trailers:

White = Ground - 1
Blue = Electric Brakes - 2
Brown = Tail and clearance lights - 3
Black = Battery, aux power - 4
Yellow = Left turn/Brake - 5
Green = Right turn Brake - 6
Orange or Purple (not both) = Auxilliary or Reverse - 7

Recreational Vehicle:
White = Ground - 1
Blue = Electric2_bing.gif Brakes - 2
Green = Tail and clearance lights - 3
Black = Battery, aux power - 4
Red = Left turn/Brake - 5
Brown = Right turn Brake - 6
Yellow = Auxilliary or Reverse - 7


Six wire trailer plugs:

Horse, stock or utility trailers:
White = Ground - GD
Yellow = Left turn/Brake -LT
Green = Right turn Brake -RT
Brown = Tail and clearance lights - TM
Red or Black (not both) = Battery2_bing.gif, aux power - A
Blue = Electric Brakes - S

Recreational Vehicle: (color, use, plug mark)
White = Ground - GD
Brown = Right turn Brake - RT
Green = Tail and clearance lights -TM
Black = Battery, aux power - A
Red = Left turn/Brake - LT
Blue = Electric Brakes - S


Four wire plugs:
White = Ground
Yellow = Left turn/Brake
Green = Right turn Brake
Brown = Tail and clearance lights


Ground should be 10ga.
Others 14 ga

A test light and a 12VDC power source can be handy for trouble shooting
.
Best regards

Well you have what is called a BUGGER.5 dont go into 4 so the problem is either the trailer is OLD and never had stop lights OR the white wire is your stop lights and it earths through the towball (but it shouldent ) so either someone has cut out the stop light wire .so check rear lights What colour is stoplight wire. As all DC wiring for trailers are 5or 7 core wires 5 for trailers and 7 for caravans..

Wiring a electric brake booster to a travel trailer and am trying to splice a red wire to the hot side of the brake pedal.. which is the ''hot wire''?


Use a test light or a DVOM to find out wich is hot the light will come on or you should read 12V +/-
Do the instructions ask for hot all the time or hot when the brakes are applied? If they want hot when applied you should only light up when the pedal is down and go out when released
