The fuse goes under the hood. In the electric box. It may have a red p;astic cover over the terminals. It is not marked for trailer, but it is the right location upper left. It uses the larger amp type see thru from the top type. same as the others in the area of this location. I used a 50 amp. use at least a 20 amp

I need to hard wire a hopkins trailer brake controller on a 2004 nissan titan


I don\'t think it has wiring provided in the factory for the tow package either. Looking at the schematics, they appear to be different with no provision for connections. The aftermarket have a wide variety of tow packages available which are simple enough to install if you ability.

Threr is one which you have to drill a large hole in the rear bumper to fit the receiving end of the connector. This is designed so that a wide selection of adaptors can be plugged into it. The adaptors are designed to fit the fixture in the bumper and the other end is shaped to plug into what ever connector you are towing. You will find this knid of fixture on nearly any factory package.. (NO WIRES DANGLING UNDER THE VEHICLE.) additionally, when not in use, there is a spring loaded cover which closes over the fixture to keep contaminants from entering Although I am a Nissan Master techniton, I chose a long wheel base 1 ton long wheel base cab and chassis Toyota with a 3.0 V-6 which I opened the back of the cab and installed a sleeper. Then built a flatbed with removable sides. I use this to pull my Nissan 300Z race Car. I have one of these fixtures on my truck because I don\'t always use the same trailer and the connectors to the trailer for the lights and electric brakes are different. The kits come with a controler for the electric brakes which you can mount where ever you wish and the controller has adjustments to control sensitivity of the trailer brakes so you can adjust the trailer to stop with the truck about the same time instead of wearing out your brakes from the extra load. With my Toyota loades with an extra engine, transmission and diff. Air compressor. Generator. Tool box, pop up tent, oils and other fluids and other misc Items. Between the trailer, the truck and it\'s load it grosses out at 11,800 lbs.When we go to Texas world speed way, we take 45 south where where there are very few cops. We cruise at 80-85 mph in the truck without a problem If the trailer brakes don\'t work, it would take me a significant time to stop because my truck is rated for 9,500 lbs.I run the living piss out of it and it has given me no problems at all/Hmm How did I get on the subject of my Toyota flatbed? OH, it\'s because I use the trailer brake setup I described which has been flawless. There are places that specialize in selling truck accesories only. From camper top and wheels to a variety of tow packages.Check them out. Good luck..

Suburban towing package fuse box location


2005 Suburban Z71 4WD I had similar situation. No 12 volt positive to 7 trailer. Under my hood at the fuse panel, the red 12v + wire was connected to Stud # 1 which is on the left side of fuse box. There is a square fuse right next to this stud. I put a 40 amp fuse in it. I use this power to charge a battery in a trailer as I am hauling.

Truck won't shut off until I unplug my tent trailer? Just pick up new trailer and had a 7 pin connector added to my truck along with a brake controller


It sounds like someone messed up to me! Apparently, the brake controller got wired into an ignition circuit that it should not have gotten wired to. When accessories are added to a vehicle, it is extremely important that the vehicle wiring diagrams are used so that you know EXACTLY what you are tying into. Some of the Chevy trucks that are sold with trailer towing packages already have the wiring for brake controllers under the dash. This makes installation easy and is already tied into the correct things.

P.S. There are multiple fuses for this setup. check all ! ! !

I do not have power on the aux. terminal in the trailer plug on a 2008 dodge ram. Any ideas?


You have got 7 pin trailer connector that was included in the optional trailer tow package. This trailer tow package also includes an electric trailer brake wiring provision that terminates at a connector located on top of the large body harness connection under the instrument panel to the left of the break pedal, as well as an electric trailer brake pigtail harness and an instruction card that are stored in the glove box when the vehicle is shipped from the factory. You will need to add an electric brake controller of your choice that will plug-in to the harness and that will also give you power on your auxiliary circuit.

How do I get 12 volts at the factory installed trailer connector


You are correct. There is a fuse in the underhood fuse/relay compartment that powers up the pin. It is one of the larger fuses and should be labeled as "AUX". Also check that the power wire is connected to the AUX bolt terminal. They shipped from the factory disconnected and the cable was zip-tied to something below the fuse box.

I only have taillights coming out of the trailer plug


so, the trailer has no brake lights, or turn signals, just tail lights? Everything (all lights) on truck work ok? What do you have for trailer wiring hook up 4, 5, 6, or 7 way? There is no fuse, the lights all work off the tow vehicle lights, so if the tow vehicle lights all work properly, it's probably a wiring problem, such as bad grounds, loose connections, etc. Get a volt meter and check voltage at truck plug to see if power is getting that far. If truck plug in is ok, wiring problem is the trailer. Make sure all grounds are tight and rust free, that's a common problem.

2007 Chevy Express Trailer Wiring


Go to an auto parts store and see if you can have a look at some electric brake modulators and trailer connectors they almost always have instructions in them that detail standard colors for any install. The standard diagram is often right on the back of the connector package.
