Question about 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

1 Answer

I have a 06 Chevy 2500 HD Duramax. It came with a tow package. The seven way plug in the rear of the truck has a red wire which is a bat hot wire. It is not working and I think it might be a blown fuse or something. Any suggestions?

I Have an 2005 chevy duramax. i purchased and S&H horse Trailer. When i plug a five prong round into the seven pin with an adapter the horse trailer on the passenger side wheel locks and drags

I would start by making sure the emergency break away switch has the plunger in it and it's working properly. If everything is OK with that then the 5 pin plug must be wired incorrectly. If you only tow the trailer with that truck I would suggest changing to a seven pin connector on the trailer. It would appear you also have a problem with the left trailer brake. They should work together.

I am trying to install a seven prong receptacle on the rear of my 2005 duramax. I was wondering if there was a diagram available. I do know that it is different than the 2007 that a friend of mine has....

No, Wiring of trailer plugs is or has a universal patern so there isn't a "matching" of towing and towed vehicles. In order tow without restriction, they are all wired the same until it comes tothe number of wires and connector confinfiguration. Like 7 way, 6 way, 4 way plugs and recepticles. Your friends plug is wired the same as yours should be as long as he too has a7 way of the same type.If you have yet to by your plug, the intructions come with it complete with wire identication and position . -- good luck

Can you tell me if the 2005 Colorado came with electric brake wiring with the towing/trailer package?

Any trailer tow package vehicle should have at least the light wires.On a truck of that size it probably didn't come with a seven pin plug but it should have a four pin for lights. Hope this helps...Dan
