Run two wires to the battery:
White - Ground
Black - Power
Blue - Run to Electric Brakes at the Rear Plug
Red - Run to cold side of brake switch off of the brake pedal (using a test light to find the cold side)
Note: Always wire the red wire to the heaviest gauge wire when testing cold side of brake switch.

You can view more brake control info here.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: brake control hook up

off of your factory harness you will have a small brown wire and a small blue wire among the 5. Do not use the small brown wire, use the blue.

SOURCE: tow plug

you have one of two things going on first check to see if the brake light on the left side is shorted out, it will be a 1157 bulb replace it and see if it works looking good does not mean it's good if it has a single contact then it's a 1156 bulb, check to make sure where the bulb socket is that the rubber inside the socket is not worn out and the bulb is shorting to ground. if it is buy a 1157 pig tail repair kit at any Nappa auto truck store or any trailer store. replace it if it needs it. Next if that does not fix it pull the left wheel off pull the drum off and look at the wires on the inside, if they are bare inside it's shorting out if you don't see a bare wire look at the color of the two wires and with a ohm meter and one wire disconnected from that side touch them at the plug and to ground one at a time you should have one wire going to ground one not if both wires going to the left side show they are shorted then you need to replace the wire or the electric coil. if you need more help just ask. If I can e-mail you I can send you a diagram and show you how to test if yo don't know. good luck.

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.

What color wire do i need to connect the wire coming from my electric brake box to the brake pedal switch


Hi, I would need your model and year to find the color. Alternately, you can use a 12 volt test light to find it yourself. Just take the connector off, hook your test light clip to a metal spot under the dash, and probe both terminals in the switch. The wire that DOES NOT light the test light is the one you need.

I have a Hopkins Brake Control the pigtail colors are Red, White, Blue, Black. My 2008 Chevy 1500 pigtail colors are Red with a black strip, Light Blue with white strip, Dark Blue, Orange, White. How do i...


1. connect the red wire to the stop lamp switch lead on the brake control. Connect the other end of red wire to the stop lamp switch in the vehicle using the splice connector

2. connect the blue wire to the trailer brake lead on the brake control. Route the other end of the blue wire to the trailer connector at the back of the vehicle.

3. connect the white wire to the ground lead on the brake control. Route the other end of the white
wire to the vehicle’s battery. Use the ring connector to connect the white wire to the battery’s negative terminal.

4. connect the black wire to the power lead on the brake control. Route the other end of the black wire to the vehicle’s battery. Use the fuse assembly to connect the black wire to the battery’s positive terminal.

I need to hook up a boat trailor Whats the color code for a 1995


I suspect that the 4 wire harness includes a ground, so you may not be able to connect both brake lights and turn signals, which are separate lamps on the pickup. You may need to get an adapter.

In any case, the color codes on the pickup are:

Tail lights -- pink/blue
Brake Lights -- green/yellow
Left turn signal -- gray/blue
Right turn signal -- gray/red
Ground -- black

Trying to connect a teekonsha voyager brake control to a 2003 expedition


Their should be a 6 pin conector that only 4 pins are used somtimes a 5th wire is installed for illumination, don't worrie about using that one. The connector is located in one or two different spots, the most popular place is under the dash on the drivers side just below the steering column the connector is grey. The colors are black or red / blue / green / white and sometimes a small black or brown wire is for illumination, don't worrie about that wire. Their are wiring harnasses for sell to hook the brake control through the conector, but if you do not want to buy an adapter hook the wires as followed: Vehicle Brake Control
Black or Red Black
Blue Blue
Green Red
White White
Black is power in to the brake control
Blue is the trailer brake feed
Green is brake signal
White is Ground for the brake control

Looking for a wiring diagram for a 2006 Ford Expedition


7way- black is 12volt (power), brown, running lights, yellow is left turn signal and stop light, green is right turn signal and stop light, white is ground, blue is brakes, and orange is aux power (can be back up lights, if trailer equipped w/ them). 6way is the same, minus orange wire. I have run into some variations to the above color codes (brown, yellow and green only-sometimes these 3 are different than stated, but only mixed as that group, as to what they control- example would be green is running lights, brown and yellow are turn signal and stop lights, the others should be as stated), if you have any trouble with things not working properly, it may be due to these variations, although the above are pretty standard. If you have an ohm meter you can check as you go (check for power at black wire- should be constant 12v, turn on turn signal and check for power-it will fluctuate from approx. 12 volts to 0 volts as the signal power pulses in the wire) hit the brakes, blue wire should show power, etc. Let me know if you need more help as you go.

Chevy c2500 siveraldo 8cyl no passenger brake light/turn signal


This sounds like some wires may not be connected or connected improperly.On this vehicle the wire colors are: Brown=parking lights,green=right turn/brake,yellow=left turn/brake. You will have to drop the spare tire to get a good look at these.

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.
