There is a box in the footwell on the drivers side mounted to the firewall. It is above and to the left of the brake pedal. It will have a cover on it with a long black plastic nut holding the cover on. Remove that cover, and your pigtail will plug into there.

How do I install brake controler on 2015 chevy colorado


most aftermarket electric controllers have 4 leads, a hot 12volt, ground, a wire that goes to the trailer brakes, and another wire tied into the brake lights. There should be instructions included with your controller. I put one on my 96 dodge ram 2500 4x4.

Changed fuses fow tow connector. #3 and # 7. Now the left trailer light,signal, brake,etc works while only right tail light on trailer still works. On right side, the tail works, but not the brake,or...


I would recommend taking out the tail light. Get a test light, have an assantant step on brake. U will see the bulb in tailamp light up. Probe the wire w/your test lamp. That is brake wire. Repeat that process for blinker.. Drop down those two wires. Hook that to the same side on trailor. Repeat for left and you should be all set.

Your truck may have had the factory trailer tow package, but that did not come with a wiring connector in that year. There should be a wire harness under the rear of the truck near the center of the bumper with 7 wires of the following colors/characteristics -

Red/Orange - +12V Battery (Thick Wire) From fuse #8 (40A)
Black/Orange - Tail Markers (Thick Wire)
Light Blue - Trailer Brakes (Thick Wire)
Violet/Black - Backup Lights (Thin Wire)
Dark Green/Red - Left Stop/Turn - (Thin Wire)
Brown/Red - Right Stop/Turn - (Thin Wire)
Black - Ground - (Thick Wire)



Under the dash, the brake controller wiring should be -

Red/Orange - +12V Battery (Thick Wire) From fuse #8 (40A)
Black/Orange - Ground - (Thick Wire)
Light Blue - Trailer Brakes (Thick Wire)
White/Tan - Brake Light sense - (Thin Wire)

Hope this helps.

How do you find out if you have the wires for a tow package? Trying to hook up a trailer with electrical brakes.


The wires would be secured under the rear of the truck. However trailer wiring is only for trailer lighting. Electric trailer brakes require a trailer brake controller.

How do you install a brake controler for a towing package?


Alot of these trucks have the wiring hook up under the dash or at rear bumper area where you can just plug the wire harness from controler to it, but if not they are simple to wire and then you must level by following the instructions,you would wire it to power and ground then one wire to brake switch and the last wire goes to tow connector for electric brake on the trailer. for more help google how to install brake controller there you will find wiring diagrams and videos.

I am not getting power off of my trailer plug for my drivers side directional and brake light but it works on the truck. There is no power at the terminal or the wiring too the back of the trailer plug....


Id say your pig tail to the trailor is having high resistance or a wire is cracked, Follow the pigtail under bumper, It plugs into main harness, Disconnect and look for damage or a dry white powder. If everything else works as you say? And your positive the vehical being toweds lighting works on another vehical? than the pig tail is bad, replace at any local parts store

Installing a 7-pin trailer towing recptical on a 1991 Ford F150.


I believe you can look up the manufacturer of the trailer plug kit and find the wiring diagram there. On alot of the trailer plug kits, they have pics and diagrams in the package. The 7 pin plug (truck side) is available with the pig tail set up that plugs directly into the wiring harness for the lights. Then all you would have to worry about is the 2 wires for the electric brakes.

Tow plug


I take it the blinkers and brake lights work ok when not hooked up to the trailer? If yes, then the wiring to the tow hitch is not hooked up correctly. How many wires to trailer pig tail connection? U can have up to 7 depending on what you tow. Check to make sure these wires are hooked up from the truck to tow plug correctly: 7 wired---
brown-Rt turn and brake light, yellow-backup, white-ground, blue-electric brake, green-tail running lights, black-battery charger, red-left turn signal and brake light. Let me know if u have something other than 7 wire, I'll get the wiring color and source info for u.
