SOURCE: tail light wiring connectors and wiring diagram

A test light checking each connector would be faster and easier to do. Maybe somebody may have a illustration for you but by far a simple test light is all you need with a helper turning on the different lights as you check them out and writing all your findings down

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.

When I tow with my car the left blinker doesn't work on the trailer. There is a 7 pin round plug on the car, with a flat adapter to the flat pin on the trailer. I have had the same problem with at...


Hello Carol, The 7 way is for use with a brake controller and/or a trailer that has electric brakes. The 4 way flat is a basic trailer plug connector.
Connect as follows:
Green wire- Connects to the vehicles right turn wire harness & provides brake light and right turn signal on trailer.

Yellow wire- Connects to vehicles left turn wire & powers brake light & Left turn signal on trailer

White wire- Ground

Brown Wire- Tail/ marker/ license plate lights

The Blue, Red & Purple wires on the 7 way will not be used on the adapter, those are for brakes.

I hope this information is helpful.

Trailer Wiring Harness


The trailer fuses should be located out in the engine compartment inside of the fuse/relay junction box.

That is unless the trailer connector on the vehicle and the wiring were installed by someone who used an after-market trailer connector, and if that is the case then you might find the fuses up under the dash or around the fuse/relay junction box, and the fuses will most likely be inside of in-line fuse holders that are part of the after-market wiring. Here are some diagrams that might help you out.

How do I wire a 4 pin flat plug to my 1996 Mazda B2300 for trailer lights? 4 pin connectors came with kit, but don't know how to wire to my truck lights. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks Robert


Rob I can't remember if your Mazda has separate brake and signal lights.
I think that model year did. If so you will need a module to make it work on a 4 pin trailer connector. These will be readily available at your local auto supplier at a reasonable price (Around $20). It will also have a wiring diagram in the package.
If the signal and the brake light are on the same bulb it will be easier.You may be able to buy a package at your auto supplier that you simply pull a plug apart at the rear of your truck and insert the complete harness.
