Wire the brake lite to your rear barke lites on the truck and the tail lites to the tail lite wire, they should be color coated, just match up colores, Just make sure you wire the left and rt. apart. good luck on it.

How can i hook it up? I have a 4 wire trailer wiring diagram


I am really not sure what you are asking for, but guessing you need to add a trailer 4 wire plug. The best way is to see if they make a wiring T ! Then you find the wire connector for your tail lights. This T is made to fit between your wire connection! Easiest and best way to wire in trailer wires.

1998 Ford Explorer has factory trailer wiring ... won't light the left turn signal light on trailer or left brake light ... bulbs are good, all lights work when vehicle lights are on except the left...


Use this as a guide and a 12 volt test light, or multimeter to see if power at proper terminal from truck. If power there, then connection at trailer plug, or wiring from there to tail lights on trailer is faulty.motor1258_22.jpg

Yes, you need the other wires to provide the trailer with battery voltage. If the trailer has trailer brakes, you should have an RV mechanic wire up the connector so the brakes on the trailer operate from the Ford.

I have a 2001 Ford Explorer sport tac. I am hooking up a small fishing boat trailer to the truck ( the wiring on the trailer is new and installed correct). The problem: When I turn on the left or right...


You have one of two problems. Either there is a bad ground on your tailer, or the vehicle side trailer connection is bad. The Sport Trac is a 2 wire system and does not require a converter it would only need a 4-flat hardwired in. If you have a 3-2 converter installed good chance that is the problem seeing that the stop and turn wires on the input side would be wired to the same wire, which would explain the turn signals going off when the brake is depressed. If you have a converter installed simply ground the brake lead on the input side of the converter and your problem should be resolved.

Have 2000 Explorer when I hook up trailer lights the right blinker does not work, looks like the brake light is always on for the right side.


This sounds like a short in the wiring on the trailer. You could attempt to isolate the source of the short, or put new wiring in for the trailer.

Pass. side trailer turn and brake lights out 1999 ford explorer


if your vehicle lights are working all the fuses will be good. follow the cable from the towing socket on your vehicle , it will most likely go behind one of the rear lights to connect into your cars system,
check your tester where the cables join and you should find the problem. hope this helps.
