Unfortuantely, there is not a plug in wiring harness for this vehicle. You will have to splice in a 4-Flat Plug. No converter box is needed since it's a standard 2-wire system. You can view this part if you click here.

White - Ground
Yellow - Left Turn
Green - Right Turn
Brown - Running Lights

Now, this is only to wire you to a 4-flat. If you need a bigger plug like a 6-way or 7-way, there are adapters. You can view these if you click here.

If you are going to install a brake controller also, you will need another wiring kit that includes a circuit breaker and wire. You can view this here.

Hope this helps!

You should have a wiring harness already there. There will be a plug with 3 female and one male connection. White is ground, Green is right turn, Yellow is left turn and Brown is tail lights. If you are installing a brake controller. You will have to run a 10 or 12 gauge blue color wire.

How do I install a wiring harness on a 1996 Chrysler Concorde to pull a trailer hook up the light harness


Lots of late model cars are fitted with a plug designed to make fitting a towing harness easy. Yours might have one of these, the dealer or the handbook should be able to tell you this.

Again lots of late model cars have a CAN-BUS system and in the absence of an integrated wiring socket a five-way relay and an independent supply should be used to power the trailer. This is a good idea for every car that must be wired the old-fashioned way even though it takes longer and costs a little more because the vehicle switches do not have to cope with the additional current load of the trailer lights.

Wiring the old-fashioned way can be made easier using Scotchloks but stripping the wire leading to each light and soldering the towing harness (or the relay harness) to it and re-insulating and finishing with a tiny cable tie is the best way for a reliable and long-lasting job. More detailed instructions are usually supplied with the towing harness.

Don't forget to also install a direction indicator (audio or visual) repeater alarm or tell-tale.

I have no power to the green wire on towing wiring harness


The green wire should be the right turn signal. Is the turn signal working on the truck,if if is the problem is probably in the towing harness or its connection to the truck.Check for fouling in the connection or a broken wire.

Need to install an electric brake on a 2004 dodge 1500 pick up under the dash


Get yourself a good trailer brake controller. If you have the tow pkg, which most of those did, then go get the adapter harness from Dodge (about $25) and wire that into the aftermarket controller (instructions will explain how to do this) and off you go.

If no tow pkg, then you'll have to wire one from scratch and if you are not comfortable doing it or have never done anything like it, you might consider having a repair factility do it for you? That way if it breaks....you get my point.

Good Luck

Installing electronic trailer brake for 2005 dodge ram 150. How to? I have a Reese Brakeman Compact to install. It has four wires (blue, black, red and white) coming out of it, but how do i figure our...


Get the Dodge harness adaptor. Typically about $15 at most auto supply places that carries towing stuff, possibly at an RV center too.
The adaptor will connect to a white plug under your dash, if you have the towing package installed from the factory.
Mine (a '97) was taped to the mega connector just to the right of the e-brake pedal... The package came with instructions on where to find it but no pictures so I had to dig a bit up under there!
If you do not have the towing package, you will be best served doing as the instructions that came with the controller say OR downloading instructions from the Reese website.

Towing light problem on wiring them up.


It looks like there could be a service bulletin to fix this.

TO: ALL TOYOTA DEALER PRINCIPALS,
SERVICE MANAGERS, PARTS MANAGERS
SUBJECT: SPECIAL SERVICE CAMPAIGN 10H
(2000 TUNDRA AND 1999 - 2000 TACOMA TRAILER TOWING WIRE HARNESS
CONVERTER REPLACEMENT)
Toyota will initiate a Special Service Campaign to replace the Toyota Trailer Towing Wire Harness
Converter (converter) on certain 2000 model year Tundra and 1999 - 2000 model year Tacoma
vehicles equipped with a genuine Toyota Trailer Towing Hitch or Bumper Hitch. This accessory
is included in the Towing Hitch Kit installed at ports (PIO) and by dealers (***); it is also sold by
dealers as an over-the-counter or service part.
An electrical short or open circuit can cause a fault in the genuine Toyota Trailer Towing Wire Harness
Converter (converter). This can cause a failure of the converter, and if a trailer is being towed at the time,
non-operation of the trailer lights. In limited cases, the converter housing could become heat-deformed.
In the case of the Tundra, the circuitry utilized in the converter was inadequate to properly manage
vehicle and/or trailer-side voltage spikes. If the converter is exposed to a voltage spike it may cause an
electrical short or open circuit within the converter.
As for the Tacoma, due to deficient waterproofing and improper installation location of the converter,
which is mounted in the lower portion of the taillight cavity of the vehicle, an electrical short circuit will
occur if water enters the converter housing.
The following vital information is provided to inform you and your staff of the campaign notification
schedule and your degree of involvement.
1. Owner Notification Letter Mailing Date
The owner notification will be conducted in two phases:
• The first phase will be launched in late August and involve vehicles equipped with port
installed (PIO) genuine Toyota Towing Hitch Kits.
• The remaining vehicle owners, whose vehicles may be equipped with a dealer installed (***)
genuine Toyota Trailer Towing Wire Harness Converter, will be notified in the second phase
to be launched in early September.
We have attached copies of the owner notification letters for your reference.
If you are contacted by an owner of an involved vehicle, who has not yet received a notification,
please verify eligibility through TDN or TIS, inspect the vehicle to assure it is equipped with the
affected part, and perform repairs as outlined in the attached Technical Instructions.

I am installing a trailer hitch on my 2001 dodge Durango. I found the wiring for the flashers, but I can't find the wire for the brake lights.


They came with factory installed towing harnesses. No need to install aftermarket stuff. The harness is in the left(driver side} rear panel. All you need to do is plug it in.

Wiring harness diagram


Your question is not clear, 2002 trailblazer has a towing harness, in order to find each wire, use a ohmmeter and try out each application.

In case of male harness of a camper you can test it with 12 volts in each wire looking which light is on and if it is different position cut wires and make similar wiring
